I spent sunday into monday here recently with my boyfriend, whose first time it was to the island, and we had a wonderful stay! Right in the center of Oak Bluffs, the ferry was a block away, there were bars to walk to, shops nearby, a diner a stone's throw away (linda Jean's) for a yummy breakfast, and a shuttle service ($2 each way) that provided transportation to other parts of the island with a frequent schedule. We rented bikes right outside the dockside and rode to the bridge where Jaws was filmed (where oak bluffs and edgartown meet...about a 3 mile ride) and jumped off the bridge with others into the beautiful ocean waters. We also took the shuttle into edgartown and explored south beach, shops, and The Atlantic restaurant. The staff at Dockside were very welcoming, full of information and recommendations, and even let us store our luggage when we got there early on day of check in and when we decided to hang around till 6pm on the day of checkout. Very clean, very accommodating, there is even a hot tub, outdoor shower (which they let us use after we checked out and came back all sandy from the beach), and a room full of snacks/coffee/tea etc. We had such a wonderful time and I highly recommend staying here if you're thinking of coming to the island. We will definitely be back again next summer!

Room Tip: we had room 27, on the second floor, it was in the back of the building so we didn't hear any noise at all. the rooms in the front of the building offer a small deck with chairs but were facing the dock/restaurants so I'm not sure if it was noisier at night or not

This was our first trip to Martha's Vineyard and The Dockside Inn proved to be a real gem. Beautiful room with great service. Being from Louisiana, we had a nice connection with John (the owner) whose alma mater was LSU. He even came out on Sunday Night to drive us to dinner in the Rolls Royce courtesy car. Needless to say, we were very impressed. Can't wait to come back!

I never write reviews for places i stay at when i go away, but I just wanted to throw something up here showing my appreciation toward the very friendly staff at Dockside Inn. The room was very clean, up to date and the views are great. My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary and had a blast. The hotel is within walking distance to all the fun bars and shops in the area, not to mention the ferry as we were going back to woods hole. I'd recommend this great establishment to anyone looking for a fun time in the Vineyard!

We enjoyed a long weekend in oak bluffs with our hosts at dockside inn... Great location and newly renovated, the inn offers a Rolls Royce courtesy car, which they were kind enough to allow us to make a special arrival for our dear friends 50th anniversary nearby. The owner John is very helpful and charming -- like his entire staff. Lovely backyard patio with jacuzzi and breakfast snack room made this so comfortable and convenient. Highly recommend this great find!

Room Tip: Face back to patio, we enjoyed the quiet

Don't like too many Inns but this place "Downside Inn" was a good surprise. The place was very clean, people very friendly and helpful, walking distance to many good attractions (the beach, restaurants, ferry, shops and more) and with a great price. They make these wonderful gourmet chocolate chip cookies that are simply delicious. I had a great time there.
