“A delightful place to stay...”

This newly-refurbished hotel has a really convenient location near the centre of Oak Bluffs, very friendly and helpful staff and a light and airy Coffee Bar and sitting area. We really enjoyed our stay there.

Stayed May 2012, travelled as a couple

Two girlfriends and I stayed here over Memorial Day for a wedding. It's a great location--walking distance from the ferry and of course everything in Oak Bluffs--the staff were very friendly, the rooms totally redone, and generally everything in great shape! We had a lovely large room with sitting room and kitchen, which was ideal for enough space for the three of us.

Would definitely stay here again!

The only (and very small downside) was that they didn't have any caffeinated tea (and I'm a tea junkie). But pretty minimal in the grand scheme of things!

I can't say enough good things about the Dockside Inn; the entire property is clean and efficiently managed, the rooms are tastefully decorated, the mattresses are good quality and the location can't be beat. More importantly, the management/staff go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. As someone who spends a lot of time in hotels I can say with complete confidence most properties could take some queues from the Dockside Inn on how to properly run a business.

the Dockside Inn is just that located in the midst of Oak Bluffs, very close to the ferry terminal and near to the many sights and restaurants. The rooms are clean and comfortable...suites too. The mattresses are conducive to a great night's sleep. The owners and staff are extremely helpful in all aspects of planning your stay and getting around Martha's Vineyard. We had a great stay.

Where to begin our stay was wonderful-we are already planning to return same time next year, with hope of squeezing in another long weekend over the summer! The Inn is clean, beautifullly redone, from the sheets, pillows, bathroom to the complimentary breakfast-they had everything covered! The owners are the sweetest of host, with tips on where to go and what to do. Staying right on the harbor is very relaxing - just a few steps away from the main street, yet just far enough for some RR, we had two peaceful nights sleep, as the Inn is extremely quiet.
We highly recommend eating at Lobsterville the seafood was incredible fresh! We rented a jeep for one of our days and spent the day touring the island, stopping at many of the beautiful sights along the way!
All and all we give our stay at the Inn a perfect 10

My boyfriend and I stayed at the dockside inn for a few days and we will without a doubt be returning! The small hotel was beautiful, clean and so comfortable!! The staff was so helpful and welcoming. We won't stay anywhere else on the island! Our weather was terrible but it wasn't even that upsetting because we were so comfortable in our room!
