The Dockside Inn
Ranked #2 of 15 Oak Bluffs B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 13, 2014

We stayed at the Docksie Inn for 3nights in July. The location is great. It's right across the street from the Oak Bluffs marina where the Hiline cruise ferry docks. It's a block from the Bus stop that operate buses to other towns and Circuit Ave. is a few steps away. The staff was great, especially Mellisa who checked us in and gave great recommendations on what to do and where to eat. We'll definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Martha's Vineyard. The all day snacks were greatly appreciated by the kids.

We decided to stay overnight on Martha's Vineyard on the spur of the moment. We found a room at the Dockside Inn at 9:00am as soon we got off the ferry. The staff was very friendly and allowed us to check in early. They called us as soon as the the room was cleaned. This was so convenient, we could could put our stuff down and freshen up. The room was clean and even had a small refrigerator for cold drinks in the summer. Guests had access to beach chairs and towels, even a cooler to enjoy some time at the beach which is in walking distance. Right outside our room was a lovely shady porch with comfortable seating. The porch looked out over a charming street with shops and restaurants. Across this small street was a walkable dock with boats and pubs along the water. If you take the ferry to Oak Bluffs you can walk to the Dockside Inn. You would not need a car to enjoy your vacation! There is also a bus nearby that can take you to other areas of the island for exploring. Would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: Ask for a larger room for more than two people.

Our experience here was wonderful from the moment we step into their lobby. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Our room was clean and comfortable. We made use of the hot tub and outdoor seating. There is an awesome outside shower to rinse the salt water off. I only wish we could have stayed longer in order to enjoy the island more. We will definitely be back!

The location of this hotel is excellent. Right on the harbor, walking distance to the Oak Bluffs beach, steps away from Nancys. The solarium with food all day long plus the beach gear room, where you can find everything you need for a relaxing day on the beach are definitely a plus. The best cost benefit in Oak Bluffs for sure!

Room Tip: I stayed on room 28 at the back of the building. Better price, silent, good choice.
