“Hated to Leave that Most Comfortable Bed!”
Reviewed 23 September 2012

Honestly, I think these were the most comfortable beds we've ever had at any hotel, motel or inn we've ever been to, and we've done a lot of traveling. Loved the pillows, too. Our room was very clean, nice and roomy with free WiFi, microwave, fridge, and continental breakfast. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had to leave one day earlier than expected and the gentleman at the desk was very understanding and did not charge us a penalty. I requested a room on the first floor since I have a bad back and there were no elevators, and they honored that request. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you prefer a room on the first floor, be sure to request it.

If you are looking for fancy, there are probably other (much higher priced) places to consider staying on the Island. But if you are visiting the Vineyard and just need a clean, comfortable hotel room, this is the best bang for your buck. It's convenient to town, but not jammed in the middle of it. The staff is friendly and efficient. I've stayed there a number of times, and it has always been a positive experience, at a reasonable price.

This place is decent. I stayed one night with my boyfriend over labor day weekend. Nothing special here. The bed and pillows were comfy although the white sheet did have a stain on it which was kind of gross. The bathroom was clean. The breakfast was OK (I have seen worse at B&B and have seen better at chains): english muffins, cereal, and per-packaged pastries, muffins and donuts. Coffee, tea, OJ and milk. This place is about half a mile to the shops, restaurants and bars. We walked, it was not bad. Directions were easy just turn left and head straight down the road. I wish the streets had more lighting though.

I booked two nights on the Vineyard and this was the first time that I had ever stayed in an "establishment" on the island, versus staying at my aunt's. It was a perfectly fine room, with two large queen size beds, and all of the amenities. I liked that it was within a ten minute walk of the town of Edgartown, and a lovely six mile walk to Oak Bluffs, with a bus service one could catch literally outside the hotel. My problem is that in the middle of August, the cost was pretty outrageous, considering that the same room could be found for a third of the cost in other locations. I was disappointed in the breakfast, which was the usual cardboard-bland tasting fare. The front desk staff were very attentive and kind, and I would say that it was them that ultimately made the stay so pleasant. We slept well and enjoyed our stay but I doubt i'd ever go back.

Room Tip: I'm guessing that if you select a room farther away from the road, it will be quieter.

Right outside Edgartown. Right next door to Stop & Shop which is convenient but maybe a bit too close. Good for families. No pool and a bit of a drive/ride to the beach. Service at the desk was very helpful

Just returned from a short-notice trip to Edgartown, and got last-minute reservations at the Clarion Inn. It's really a basic hotel, but it's got the location going for it. We arrived by bike, and were happy to see that the bike trail goes directly to the location, making it ideal for our daily adventures on the road.

Good: well located for accessing all parts of the island by bike (and I guess by car!), easy walk into the center of town, employees were helpful and friendly, coffee available all day, free newspapers and wireless internet, nice sized room, access to the basement to store our bikes, free breakfast.

not so good: that free breakfast (not too into the sweets for breakfast thing, resorted to cereal), lack of outdoor areas for any kind of activity other than parking, friendly employees weren't the most efficient and knowledgeable though they tried, the crazy traffic on Main Street.

Room Tip: If you have a bike (or feel like a walk), we found the Bend in the Road beach, about a mile away on...

Wecare currently staying here for a week. The location is great, it's right off the main road, right next door to a stop and shop supermarket and walking distance to town. The rate includes parking and the staff is very helpful with recommendations on everything. The hotel is also attached to an amazing restaurant called The Grill which has a great selection of well prepared food. Overall the hotel is great but just a quick note to those that need a elevator, there isn't one. It's only 2 floors the stairs are wide and there are Dolly's, you just have to get your stuff up about 12 very wide stairs.
