My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our 4 nights at the Hob Knob. Not only is this small hotel centrally located (i.e., no water view, but a short walk to everything - including the central bus stop that can lead you anywhere on the island), but it is also surprisingly delightful.
We stayed in a second floor room with an extremely comfortable king bed. The room was not super large and neither was the bathroom, but it was nicely appointed and comfortable. Although the hotel is on a busy street, our room remained free from outside noise throughout our stay. Carpeting, good windows and a white noise machine (among the room's features) helped assure our sense of privacy.
The public spaces are varied and well maintained, including several living-room/den type spaces, various verandas, the garden area, the fitness center (we were not expecting a fitness center), the spa, etc. The included breakfast (from 8 am to 10 am) is way above average and the tea (from 4 pm to 6 pm) should not be missed. The baked goods are all made on site, and we missed their coffee when we had to move on to another hotel on the Cape for a family wedding.
Do not expect a pool or jacuzzi, as there is none.
In town, we enjoyed our dinners at Atria (the Cellar), Alchemy and Latanzi's (Pizza). Alchemy was our favorite. We would prefer to forget our meal at Sea Shanty. The Hob Knob does not offer lunch or dinner.
I do not know whether we will get back to the Vineyard any time soon, but - if we do - the Hob Knob is our first choice.hotel.
