The Dockside Inn
Ranked #2 of 15 Oak Bluffs B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 16, 2013

We stayed at the Dockside Inn for one night over Memorial Day weekend. From the very beginning, our experience could not have been better. Upon calling to make the reservation for two rooms, we were told that there would be no problem having a pack-n-play put in one in order to accomodate our two year old niece. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Nancy with a wonderful smile and great conversation. She showed us the inn and its offerings (including the amazing breakfast/snack area!!) and held our luggage while the rooms were being cleaned. She even called me on my cell phone to let me know the rooms were ready. Throughout our stay, everyone was so friendly, kind and thoughtful. On top of being in an excellent location and being a beautiful property, the Dockside staff is second to none. We very much look forward to staying there on our next trip to the Vineyard.

Wow is one word to describe the Inn. You can walk to the Dockside Inn from the ferry and not have to worry about a cab or car service. From the moment you enter the lobby you feel welcomed. The staff is so friendly and they make you feel at home. My room was very clean. The Snack room is something I have never seen and I have traveled to many countries and all over the u. S. This room is stocked with many great snacks and is constantly restocked. We stayed in room 34 which over looks the harbor and had a great kitchen. This room is great for a family as it has two pull out sofas. This property has a hot tub and a outdoor shower. Your are just steps away from the beach. The owner is on site and works right along with the staff. The staff works very hard to meet all your needs. You are close to restaurants and all the major sites in Oak Bluffs. Everything is within walking distance.This is my first trip and it won't be my last. Martha's Vineyard is a place to get away from all the noise of the city. There are no fast food chains or big department stores or malls. It's a peaceful and safe place to visit.

Room Tip: Ask for room 34 has the best view and has a kitchen

We really enjoyed our stay. The room was recently updated and very clean. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. It was an excellent value and included unlimited snacks, coffee, water, etc. Beach chairs, umbrellas and coolers w/ ice are also available. We will definitely go back again.

Just spent last week at the Dockside Inn with my new husband for our honeymoon, and it was a wonderful experience! The hotel is right in the middle of the action in Oak Bluffs with many restaurants and harbor all around. The hotel was very clean, and had great extras - like a hot tub, beach gear including coolers and chairs for picnics on the beach, and a well-stocked snack bar. The staff was very friendly - Kathy in particular welcomed us and made us feel at home right away. I will definitely stay at this hotel again and would recommend to anyone headed to Martha's Vineyard!!

We stayed here for 2 nights in May and got engaged on the second night of our stay!! So this place will always hold great memories for us. The hotel itself was in a superb location, right on the waterfront. Rooms were clean and tidy and the hotel offered an amazing snack room which was all complimentary. Bottled water, chips, fruit, coffee, tea, sweets, you name it. A nice treat for the moments when you want to chill out in the hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to make a trip to Oaks Bluff.

This Inn was fantastic. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The outdoor shower is great. The snack room with all of the free snacks was outstanding. The staff was absolutely wonderful. Great location. I can't say enough good things about it and I'm a hotel snob.
