The inn was under renovation, but our room was very nice and we are very discriminating. The restaurant served a more than adequate dinner and breakfast was fantastic. The lake water was low, but all in all a great place to stay for a short trip.

I stayed at the hotel for one night mid-August 2013. We arrived on an evening ferry and headed straight to the Inn. The innkeeper was available as soon as we rang the bell at the door (they lock the front door after hours, as they should) and handed us our keys which were ready and gave us a quick mini...

Our room was beautifully decorated and so bright and cheery with lace curtains, high ceilings and a spotless and spacious bathroom. We walked...

This is a great place to stay right in the heart of Oak Bluffs. The room we stayed in (room #1) was very spacious and had a private bath. Breakfast was great! We did bring our car so we were happy there was ample parking as well. Loved the hospitality and great laid back feel!

I dare anyone to find a better stay on the island than the Admiral Benbow. The owners are really nice and so great. The rooms are lovely and extremely clean. I loved that each room had its own bathroom and the location is so convenient and easy to find! I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a new...

Our rooms were clean and comfortable and the price was right. The hotel was a little out of the way - a good walk back to town or beach area. We barely saw the innkeepers except at check-in and check-out. If that's what you want this place is great. We like to stay at B&Bs where the innkeepers are friendly...

My fiance and I stayed here memorial day weekend and everything was great! It was about a 10 minute walk to the main center of Oak Bluffs. It was also about a 10-15 minute bike ride to Vineyard Haven. The room was very clean and spacious. There is no tv but we did not need one. The owners were really...

This place was great. The décor throughout was very attractive and our room on the first floor was very spacious. I was a little hesitant when I read a few reviews as we were looking at different places. Some people just love to complain. This is someone’s business. I found those negative reviews inaccurate. Yes there was a hose there...

My feelings about the inn are very much colored by the fact that I need a firm mattress and ended up having to sleep on the floor for two nights because the inn not only had none but had no cots either. That said, I found the inn pretty disappointing in other respects as well. The first room I had...
