Stayed here in unit 76 from 8/31 to 9/4/12. The rugs were filthy & spotted. The beds in the spare room were in need of new mattresses & the pillows were terribly thin. The whole unit was in need of updating & some interior decorating. When the issue of the rung was shown to management, the excuse was that it was the end of the season. Don't know what the excuse was for other cleaning problems in the unit. There were not enough hooks or places to put things in the bathroom & nowhere to hang much (one hook behind the door). No TV in the spare room, but the TV in the master didn't work properly & oh yes there was no mirror in the spare room. Read the reviews, but decided to make the best of it. Big mistake. Would NEVER go there again.

Room Tip: Do not know of any tips.

Where to start? Rugs badly stained throughout. Back deck area just rocks, weeds, small wooden benches, unusable grill, flies and bugs. Couldn't leave door open to deck; no screens, no windows in living room. Rooms barren and depressing with minimal cheap furniture, nothing on off white walls. No hooks behind doors or anything to put luggage on. No hangers in closets. Nothing in large bathroom to put toiletry items on. Rusted glass shower door and cheap plastic bath enclosure. Mattress on sofa bed unusable; 1 inch thick with wires and bars, and no bedding provided. No coffee filters for machine. Two clunky 19" t.v. sets, none in 2nd bedroom. Front of unit mulch, weeds and overgrown shrubs, no place to sit. Can not go out at night; no lights on grounds and pitch black. No internet. Office doesn't answer, doesn't call back and doesn't give a crap. A hell hole.

Room Tip: Don't do it.

We have been going to Briarwood for over 10 years. Great place for kids of all ages. The condo set up allows for everyone to have plenty of space. Although, the majority of the time is spent out and about. The clubhouse/pool/ outdoor activities keep them busy. It is situated so kids can ride their bikes safely. Everyone is friendly and you are 5 minutes from the Main Street shops/Beaches. Great resturants. Woods Hole is 10-15 minutes away which is another great place to take the kids. Overall highly recommended.

We stayed in unit 33 the week of July 23rd. This was a family vacation with kids and grandparents. When we checked in we were greeted with extreme attitude at the front desk. I believe her name was Mary, and she made us wait 20 minutes as she finished her cigarette. I brushed it off, thinking maybe she was just a crabby old lady. However, the next day when I asked her how far Silver Beach was from the "resort", she said "normally 20 minutes, for you more like 45 minutes". Again, I was on vacation with my family - I didn't see the point in engaging in a war of words with a person who obviously has deep rooted psychological issues. We were suppose to have a 2 bedroom 2 bath room condo, however the unit only had 1 bathroom. Further to that the bathroom was falling apart - literally. The shower door fell off while my wife was using the shower. I called the front desk, got an answering machine left a message for a repair - no answer. The sheets and linens were dirty, it seemed like rather than replacing the sheets and linens the cleaning staff merely dusted them off and used the same ones from the previous stay. I called the front desk - got voicemail, left a message - no return call. We had read that the units were suppose to have hardwood floors and up to date furniture. To put it simply, we felt as if we were living in the ghetto. I would not recommend this place even to my worst enemy. The first thing Briarwood needs to do is fire the old lady at the front desk - rude is an understatement. I have a few choice words for her if I ever see her again! The location was the one saving grace for this place is it is near everything. Outside of that you are better off staying home than wasting your money at this dump!

Room Tip: My helpful tip is to stay away and be prepared to spend as little time as humanly possible in the room.

We stayed here in unit 43 in a block at far end but still only 70m from the office from 12 to 19 May 2012. Just two of us but 2 bedroom unit plenty of space for 4. Kitchen had all you need and more 4 baking pots dishwasher etc. Yes its on the old side but don't be put off its well maintained painted nothing broken very clean bedding towels etc includes dishwasher tablets shampoo plenty car parking right out front to carry in cases and shopping. Yes we would go back again the office has all brochures and very helpful to plan trips. A GPS is essential to save time and stress when heading out. You must take the ferry to Martha's Vineyard island take the early 9 am to see all over there in a day and ask for senior discounts on ferries, bus about, etc it does save, they do not ask for proof. We booked our week with RCI and everything was as per the confirmation emails. They even send reminder emails 3 weeks before the due dates. Wifi is only available in the office lounge but is free. I agree with most of other reviews. There is plenty to do in a week. A must visit is the glass works and gardens at Sandwich.

Room Tip: We like to visit just prior to summer rush when weather is warm but not hot and towns/resorts are not packed full that you are overrun; prices are possibly higher and you avoid traffic jams. Currently bridge works on the Sagamore main access bridge is restricting all traffic across the bridge from 2 lanes bothways to one lane eachway with bank ups One hour up to 4 mile queues -- be aware this might run until July 2012.
