My boyfriend and I stayed at the dockside inn for a few days and we will without a doubt be returning! The small hotel was beautiful, clean and so comfortable!! The staff was so helpful and welcoming. We won't stay anywhere else on the island! Our weather was terrible but it wasn't even that upsetting because we were so comfortable in our room!

I travel to Martha's Vineyard frequently and usually stay with family but stayed in a hotel for a quick overnight for a family surprise party. The Dockside has just been renovated and we stayed the second night they were open. The rooms and grounds are decorated lovely and the bed was very comfortable. There was a small kitchen area that would have been great for a longer stay. We were very happy with the Dockside Inn!

Room Tip: We had 5 people stay so chose a room with a queen bed, double pull out and a single pullout....this...

My wife and I were lucky enough to get to stay during the opening weekend! This inn has been completely redesigned and is impeccable. The location is perfect, rooms with great views of the harbor. The owner, John, was incredible and so helpful. We even used Loomis (sp?) their digital concierge to suggest things to do on the island. We will definitely be back...soon!

We were really happy to have stayed here during our first ever trip to the Vineyard. The place has been under new management and been refurbished since Jan, and looked clean and inviting.

Our room was fresh, beds were comfy, and management and staff friendly and super competent. the location was very central, a short walk from the Steamship Authority pier and plenty of good restaurants. The shared wireless net was super fast, that's a nice bonus.

Co-owner Caleb also went above and beyond by giving our family a lift to Edgartown in his 1956 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud, that was a great experience.

Great value!

We loved being here on the first weekend they were open after a change in ownership and extensive renovations. Everything is new and every detail has been thought of, from supplying beach towels and chairs to the simple but satisfying self-serve continental breakfast. Homemade chocolate chip cookies in the afternoon were especially appreciated.... Very modern feel throughout--rooms are not huge, but normal sized and functional. TVs are small flat screens, but who goes to MV to watch TV? Location cannot be beat--close to everything in Oak Bluffs. Everyone we dealt with was so helpful and genuinely wanted to make sure that our stay was pleasant. We will definitely be back and will recommend this small inn to anyone looking for reasonably priced, well located accommodations.

Room Tip: May want to ask for a room on the back side to escape street noise.

Happy to say, we were the FIRST to sleep in our fully updated, renovated, brand new room this past Friday when the new owners opened for the season. Beautifully redecorated, fair prices and a great location on the harbor. First stay on the vineyard, and we will likely be back - thank you!
