“BEST PLACE ON MARTHA'S VINEYARD!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

This is a FABULOUS hotel! Rooms are clean, staff is BEYOND helpful and courteous! You know you are in a 'beach location" from the second you walk in the front door and see the lobby's decor- beautiful. Out back there are places to sit and have coffee outside and even a jacuzzi! Free Keurig coffe, granola bars and popsicles for the kids! They even have a "beach gear" room where they supply beach chairs, floats, towels, coolers and an ice machine. For all those who take the ferry over, carrying and packing those things are a nightmare- with this place you do not have to worry! Location is fabulous- quick couple steps to the OB docks where all the restaurants and bars are but far enough away that you do not hear them! Ferry is about 2 minute walk as well. This is a great place for a family, get away with friends or couples weekend. I would HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone looking for a great escape to the Vineyard!

Room Tip: Room 35 is separate from the hotel, located in the back over looking their backyard. Great if you...

If you want the bustle of the dockside at Oak bluffs, this is agood place. We stayed there in June 2012. They had just renovated the entire place - it looks good. The staff/management is most friendly. Bike rentals and the best places to eat in Oak Bluffs are all close by.

I would definately recommend The Dockside Inn to anyone! Our room was very clean and beautifully done! We were able to use items from their beach room such as chairs, towels, coolers and umbrella free of charge- which was really great - since we hadn't packed these items! Very pleased, already thinking about a trip for next summer!

Simply loved The Dockside Inn!
People were so friendly and helpful.
The room was so pretty and very clean.
We would definitely go back next year because being there was easy and enjoyable!!!
The hotel is right in the heart of all the fine restaurants, the beach and the gorgeous home and park. Easy accessible to buses as well to go to different parts of the island. A Pleasure to be at!!!

Room Tip: Our room with double beds was great.. 3rd floor...

Minor complaint is not being able to get into "breakfast room" until 8:00 am. When I called for reservations I told the guy that was a complaint from when I stayed there 6 yrs ago & I was told now we had access to that room 24 hrs/day. So we were not happy when we had to go somewhere for coffee when we were ready at 6:00 am! Beds were comfortable & plenty of space in rooms but no place to hang clothes.
