Really liked this place. The decor is so fresh and unusual. Really feels quite retro. Nice change to all the more standard places. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Excellent location by the ocean. Clean fresh rooms. Good tea/coffee making facilities. Old hotel which has been revamped.

Every time I hear about the wonderful design and decor of this place, I fetch. I have only seen one room, mind you, but all of the furnishings there and on the front porch reminded me of an Ikea showroom. From the platform bed with the futon mattress that did not cover the very sharp corners of the base, to...

The hotel was really nice. It was very well decorated. The rooms did not have a closet and weren't huge but were very comfortable. The view from the water front rooms is a spectacular harbor view. The front porch had the same harbor view and several rocking chairs, couches and other funky seating places.the folks at the front desk were...

Great location, directly on Oak Bluffs Harbor and part of the 19th century Methodist revival camp and its famous gingerbread houses. Short walk from OB ferry landing. Hotel is both comfortable and whimsically, colorfully decorated, inspired by the color schemes of the unique gingerbreads. Lots pf maritime pastels. Like any place down island, Summercamp is easily accessible by taxi or...

First trip over to Marthas Vineyard, decided to check out Oak Bluffs due to the convenience of traveling over on the ferry from RI and not needing a car. In terms of location, this is a good spot. You are in walking distance to everything that would interest you in Oak Bluffs. The hotel was recently renovated and has a...

We reserved a room last minute due to weather concerns. No discount rates, no breakfast, tiny room and tinier bathroom. Very modern and doesn't fit with the Victorian surroundings. If you are attending a dressy function, there is no closet to hang your clothes - just cubby. There is an ironing board attached to the bathroom door that bangs when...

Great job on the renovation, the room had plenty of USB ports for charging purposes. We stayed on the 800 floor in the West building, the room was a good size for 2 people. The bathroom could use a soap dish. Also, if you get a room with a water view, there are stairs on the outside of the hotel...

Nice property with a great location. A stone throw from all the happenings and wonderful restaurants. Room was clean with very friendly staff. Room size was nice and colorful. I would easily stay there again.

I stayed there twice during 2016 on separate occasions--once in their main building, and once in a side building--and they were consistent The rooms are on the smaller size, but are cute and very well appointed.

We chose this for the pet-friendly rooms, but were disappointed that the rooms faced the back and were next to the employee entrance. Constant noise from deliveries being made, employees making their way to work and people getting in their cars in the parking lot. For the price of this hotel, there has to be a better option for those...

As you probably know, it is not easy to find pet-friendly lodging on Martha's Vineyard. For this reason (and because we're pet lovers ourselves) we created a pet friendly room at Summercamp. I'm sorry it wasn't what you expected, but due to health codes and the comfort of our other guests, it had to be located in a less conspicuous...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Fully Renovated - now open for the 2016 season! Formerly the historic Wesley Hotel, the new Summercamp hotel invites you to be a kid again at our whimsically renovated Martha's Vineyard hotel. This new incarnation is designed as a nod to Oak Bluffs' history as a summer "camp" destination for the Methodist Church and reflects the rustic, retro and nostalgic touches that any former campgoer (or former child) can embrace! Gaze at the harbor from your deck chair, grab a snack from the Camp Canteen, or play ping pong or Twister in the game room. Discover beautiful beaches, fine and casual dining, and eclectic shopping in the heart of Oak Bluffs. Located across from the harbor in historic Oak Bluffs, our reimagined Martha's Vineyard boutique hotel is a nod to the past with an eye to the future. Offering Martha's Vineyard hotel accommodations for every lifestyle and budget, Summercamp is your place for fun and relaxation of this magical island. ... more   less
