Reviewed 3 August 2014

Planned a short stay and last minute plans.
Audrey was so very helpful with finding a room and went out of her way to call me back when she was able to find what I needed. The hotel is in the most perfect location in Edgartown (and this is from someone who has visited the island at least 50 times) Love it here.
When trying to get a rez for Chesca's restaurant on a busy Saturday night, Nina
called ahead for us to secure a spot- even tho they don't take reservations.
All in all couldn't have been a better stay even on a rainy weekend in August!

We took the Falmouth Ferry over and this hotel was just a block away and convenient to the beach, shopping and restaurants. The staff was friendly and helpful. We used the complimentary bicycles to visit Oak Bluffs, Tisbury and Vineyard Haven which was enjoyable and affirmed our decision to stay in Edgartown. The complimentary breakfast each morning included cereals, breads, quiche, ham filled croissants and fruit by the piece. Our room was called a Cozy Queen and although very small was quite comfortable and well equipped. The bathroom was a good size and recently updated. The front porch is lined with rocking chairs and was a great place to visit with friends and people watch. The only negative was the fact that the doors were old and allowed for a lot of noise to come in from the hallway, but most guests seemed to recognize this and so traveled the hallways quietly. I would definitely stay here again!

We're so pleased that you had such a lovely stay and found everything to be so cozy and convenient. We are partial to Edgartown, as well, but it is nice to explore the island on bike, isn't it!? Thank you for your review and thoughts. We look forward to your next visit to the island.

We stayed at this property for four nights and had a great time.
The location is perfect, with lots to do right outside the front door and a relatively short drive to the breathtaking beaches and hikes on the island and a three minute ferry ride to Chappaquiddick.

The small suite we stayed it was comfortable and cheerful. The one drawback, and in my opinion it's a big one, is the only sink is in the bedroom at the foot of the bed so if I got up before my husband or went to bed later he was wakened by my sink/grooming stuff.

The room seemed very clean but the daily vacuuming missed a lot of floor stuff. I asked that the room be cleaned on the early side and they were extremely responsive. We had a couple of small issues (lightbulb, internet, etc.). and the response was perfect.


The staff, on our arrival was lovely and very knowledgeable. Subsequently, the staff at the desk often seemed distracted and were unable to answer basic questions. They weren't rude, they just didn't seem very interested.

In summary, we loved our stay and would stay here again. I'm hoping the small above mentioned issues will be addressed so that a nice property will be even better.

(oh...and hotter water for the tea, please)

The location is perfect! From the time we arrived until the time we left, Joanne and her staff were very accommodating. The inn is always clean and the front porch is such an amazing benefit. The rooms were cozy and we expected that coming in. We would definitely stay here again the next time we visit Martha's Vineyard.

My husband and I have stayed at this property for many years, going back to when it was the colonial inn. Charming building with many updates and they left the squeaky floors. Small but well appointed room. View of harbor from a shared porch we had to ourselves.
Great continental breakfast and a fabulous staff. We were on the island for a destination wedding. This is the place to stay. In town. Near everything. Can't wait to go back.

This was out first experience staying in Martha's Vineyard and we stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. Using the bus to get from the ferry to the hotel was a breeze. When we got to the hotel, later in the day, the person at the desk definitely could have been nicer. Didn't get an extremely warm welcome and was not given the gift card that is promised on the website for the midweek special. Was promised it would be ready the next morning as the manager had to get it. Came down the next morning and she had forgotten and we had to wait for the manager to go get it. Seems like they are advertising it on the site but aren't in a rush to give it to you. The front staff was very pleasant the other times we used it, just this one woman was not very friendly, so we avoided her if we needed anything.

Here are a few pro's and cons to our visit
Pro's:
1) Very clean, the porch was very clean and we constantly saw the workers cleaning the windows, sweeping, etc. The room was also very clean and well maintained.
2) The bikes provided were excellent and we used them to ride all around the island, they were schwins and very nice at that
3) They porch was great to sit on and they had a nice little outside area to sit and eat breakfast
4) On thursday they had a band playing outside in the front of the hotel which was a great feature we really enjoyed
5) The rooftop deck (it does have a roof) was great, it was right outside our room and since the room is a little on the small side we sat out there a lot

Cons:
1) This is probably one of our biggest cons, the AC unit was situated right to the right of the bed on the wall which meant it was blowing on you the whole night. There was a way to adjust it to point up slightly, but the person on the far side of the bed still felt it. It made it very hard to keep the temperature and i had to get up in the middle of the night to adjust and in the end we usually just left it off for fear of waking up with stiff necks.
2) All INN's we go to always have a lacking breakfast so i don't know if thats just the way it is or what. I understand they dont have a kitchen and chef on premise but the food was mediocre at best. We went out for breakfast, one, due to the lack of variety, and two, because it ended it 930? i believe. We were on vacation and werent going to wake up that early to run down to get breakfast. Nothing warm was provided except for some ham and cheese item which i dont think is really breakfast food anyways.
3) The shutters in the room covering the windows don't totally block out the sun in the morning and they are very large thereby blocking the view unless they are opened and swung out into the room. Also, when you want to open the windows the shutters must be open, but there are chairs in front of the windows so each time the chairs must be moved and moved back. The room is too small to keep that chairs out so it was a pain to always be moving things around.
4) The stairs and hallway were not totally if at all covered with carpet. All hardwood floors, which looks nice but isn't practical when people are walking around early in the morning.

The Inn was situated right in the town which was awesome as you could walk anywhere you wanted but for the price, the smaller size of the room, the lack of view, and the lack of breakfast we think we might find another place to stay if we were to come back.

Thank you for your review and thoughts. It sounds like you had a lovely time overall and that a few things (our new AC units, our New England style shutters and our house-baked breakfasts featuring ham and cheese quiche) were simply not your cup of tea. We apologize that it took until the morning of your sail to get your two free tickets to the Mad Max catamaran, but we're happy that it was in plenty of time to enjoy that complimentary special amenity. Thanks again for your review and all the best to you!

I must admit I am a bit particular when it comes to lodging, but Vineyard Square surpassed every expectation. The staff was friendly, accommodating and efficient. Our room was charming and positively immaculate. i enjoyed the variety of fresh breads, muffins, mini quiches, etc for the continental breakfast before heading out on the bikes which available to guests. The one drawback was something the hotel has no control over- the early morning arrival of trash or delivery trucks which were a bit noisy. i would absolutely visit again!
