Older hotel completely redone, rocking chairs on the front porch overlooking the harbor and other businesses, sitting area in rear courtyard, chairs available on open decks outside every room. Common area had continental breakfast, coffee and snack food available 24/7. My room was small but very nicely renovated -- fresh and attractive. Only negative was erratic wi-fi. Beach gear room...

The location is perfect, if u are coming right off the Hyline ferry and close enough if you came by Steamship Authority. Location is great for people watching and awesome view of the harbor. The staff were great and helpful. I remembered Victoria's name, Hannah I think and "the new girl", all were excellent w/all questions we had. Only 2...

This hotel is the perfect mix of convenience (to downtown and the ferry pier) and seclusion (it's tucked away on a side street). They have lots of convenient amenities for beach vacationing, such as an outdoor shower, a "beach room" for chairs and towels, and a hot tub. I just wish the breakfast quality was better (there's oatmeal and muffins...

Perfect location! Minutes to the ferry and steps to great restaurants and shops. Was checked in by Victoria who was very sweet and knowledgeable. Stayed in room 35 I would recommend it. Loved being able to stay at a boutique hotel even though we were on the Vineyard. Loomis the island concierge is a great idea. Wish I could have...

My husband and I recently stayed here for 4 nights. Johnny, the hotel owner, was unbelievable as was his staff. The Inn is steps from the ferries and really quaint.

I was so grateful to have been directed to this hotel that's easily accessible from the ferry dock! I needed somewhere to store my luggage while I biked the island and for $5, this hotel provides this service. I stepped into a clean, nicely air conditioned, and tastefully decorated lobby. Victoria at the front desk, greeted me warmly, took my...
