Kelley House
Ranked #9 of 10 Edgartown B&B and Inns
Reviewed 25 December 2012

My wife and I stayed at the property for three nights just before Christmas. All aspects of our trip were handled very professionally. Reservations were booked according to our desires and trip reminders were sent to ask for any further requests. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a friendly front office staff. Charlotte was extremely gracious to us during our stay. Chelsea was very friendly as well. The evening refreshments (milk and freshly baked cookies) were a great hit. Every morning there was freshly brewed coffee and muffins. Our room was very spacious and the bed was very comfortable. Overall, the Kelley House is a wonderful value!

Stayed two nights at the Kelly house in December. The staff is outstanding, especially Chelsea.
The rooms were really comfortable and everything is within walking distance. Even the linens kept in the room were all top notch. Highly recommend this Hotel.

We stayed at the Kelley House in Edgartown for 3 nights in November, 2012. The staff were just fantastic - friendly and willing to answer our every need. Our room was spacious with a nice vintage feel. The bed was very comfortable. A continental breakfast of great coffee and somewhat greasy muffins was available every morning. The home-baked cookies served with milk every night at 8:00 PM was a nice touch! This hotel is right in the center of Edgartown and just across the street from the harbor. We didn't have a view of the water but some rooms do. The only negative was that the weather turned warm, and we couldn't turn the heat down in our room. I think the thermostat must have been out of order. We opened the windows, but it didn't help much. We reported the problem when we checked out.

A group of five friends stayed this past weekend at Kelley House, and we can't say enough good things about it. The location in the heart of Edgartown was perfect, walking distance to many restaurants, shops, and the local cinema. There is free parking on premises. Our rooms were spacious and comfortable (room 315 had a lovely water view with spectacular sunrises). We loved the morning coffee and muffins in the lobby (with a fireplace), and every evening there are homemade cookies, and cold milk, for the guests. Charlotte, the front desk manager, was a cheerful presence and answered all of our questions. The hotel is not fancy, and there's no restaurant on the premises, but the atmosphere is relaxed and relaxing, the hospitality outstanding, and the location can't be beat. We'll surely stay there again.

Room Tip: We enjoyed rooms in the main building. Ask for the third (top) floor. No elevator, but if you can ma...

We recently stayed at the Kelley House while Superstorm Sandy hit the East Coast. While the hurricane certainly wasn't an ideal part of our trip, the hotel took great care of us throughout, making sure we had what we needed even when the power went out etc. They were never far away with box lunches, flashlights, bottled water, etc. When the storm passed we got to explore the charming town of Edgartown, including a great meal at the Newes From America Pub. Truly exceptional service throughout.

Room Tip: The three bedroom suite in the Courthouse was perfect for a family of four.

I recently booked a trip for my husband and I to explore New England for the first time staying in unique B&B's. I used tripadvisor to pick out B&B's going by their ranking of the top five. I was shocked when we arrived at Kelley House which was ranked as one of the top B&B's in Martha's Vineyard because this is a 53 room hotel built to house the cast for the movie "Jaws" in the 1970's. The rooms are slightly musty, boring beige rooms in need of an update. There is no breakfast either - just a few commercially prepared muffins with an urn of coffee put on a table in the lobby. If I had booked this hotel through a travel agent I would be asking for compensation but since I relied on the accuracy of tripadvisor.ca I will have no recourse. I can't believe no review picked up on this - unless it was deliberately hid by this website. The pictures on the website do not reflect the motel/hotel at all! Shame on you tripadvisor!

Room Tip: Room 116 was musty and had cobwebs hanging from the ceiling and in the bathroom. No sound proofing...

Recently spent Columbus Day Weekend on Martha's Vineyard and stayed at the Kelley House. Very spacious room and extremely comfy bed! We were on the first floor which made for easy access in and out. My only complaint would be that you could hear the people above us getting up at 7:00 a.m. and taking a shower and walking around. Other than that, we had a perfect stay. Also ate at the Newes Pub which is adjacent to the Kelley House and it was delicious and cozy. Highly recommend both places when visiting the Vineyard.
