“Reliable Dockside”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

Always stay @ the Dockside when in MV. Been said before, great location, personal service, friendly helpful staff, etc. and it's all true. Booked late so I stayed in the last room available, which meant no view, but it didn't matter. Clean room and above mentioned positives make the Dockside a reliable, enjoyable and affordable stay in Oak Bluffs. Thanks again.

We had returned to the Dockside this year after having stayed there 2 years ago and we were delighted to find all the upgrades the current owners have made at the property. The front desk person was very welcoming and she took the time to literally walk us around and show us all the recent changes they have done. If you like the beach they have a great room filled with beach amenities all free to use. The addition of the breakfast/snack room is fabulous but may I recommend adding cereal boxes for the cont breakfast buffet. Again we choose a room facing the front of the bldg on the 2nd floor which we loved for the views and ocean breezes but the street noise after hours and early morning trash removal trucks proved to be too much so we had to shut the windows and opt for AC. We even used your virtual concierge one night for a restaurant suggestion- too funny. We were hoping the rates would have dropped lower after Labor Day but we still appreciated the upgrades to the property.

Room Tip: Rooms on 2nd floor facing the front are great if you like ocean breezes & a spectacular harbor v...

Arrived early - staff will store your "stuff" ~ anything you may need is easily accessible & complimentary~ beach chairs/towels/umbrellas/coolers/ice, snacks, ice cream, coffee, water. We stored our bikes in the quaint backyard. Rocking chairs on the front porch are relaxing and entertaining - shops/restaurants/marina across the street. The staff are very friendly and accommodating with any requests. The room was clean, roomy, fluffy towels, quiet, great soap & shampoo (haha) - yep indeed sometimes it's the smallest touches. You will not be disappointed!!

Room Tip: Some rooms on street side - porch/rockers - Sept visit was quiet - Wonder if July would be noisy? S...

I stayed two nights at the Dockside Inn in early September. Room was clean and charming. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Ferry is a 5 minute walk and lots of restaurants/shops nearby. I will definitely stay here on my next trip to MV!

Dockside was a very welcoming place to stay. It felt like you were staying with friends. The staff always had suggestions of what todo in town. Fresh baked cookies everyday, quite courtyard to hang out in the evenings. A full stocked closet of beach stuff. Towels, chairs, sunscreen,etc. Dockside makes it very easy to relax.

Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay at the Dockside in August during when the Illumination and Fireworks were held. We had our favorite room at the Dockside and everything again was perfect. We've already made our reservations for next year.

P.W. (Hopefully this will be submitted as I tried before and was unable to find it.) Thanks!!
