We've been staying at chain hotels for a while now, and what you don't realize is how impersonal your experience is until you stay someplace like the Madison Inn. We enjoyed our stay SO MUCH it was crazy. The location is fabulous, surrounded by fun things to do in Oak Bluffs, a short walk to a huge park and State beach, which had tons of shells and cool rocks, and a quick walk to the ferry terminal. While they do not have dedicated parking, there was plenty of loading room and then parking spots throughout town to use.
What I want to focus on, though, is how incredibly friendly the owner was. She has a background in interior design and told my husband that if someone asked for something more than a few times they just added it to the list of provided-amenities. For example she had apple fritter in the morning, along with coffee, granola bars, fruit and Twizzlers :) There is a fridge and freezer available to guests and the freezer has complimentary popsicles.... The 'bike room' serves multiple purposes - you can lock up your own bikes (or bikes you rent on the island) or choose from a ton of honor system items such as beach chairs, toys, umbrellas, coolers, and boogie boards. There is a back patio with multiple tables and chairs, as well as a front porch with chairs and small tables. For cooler evenings there is a small living room in the lobby with tables and chairs.
This was by far my favorite vacation we've taken in a long time and we were only there for a weekend! I am already looking into another reservation for the fall... We cannot wait to get back.
