The Dockside Inn
Ranked #2 of 15 Oak Bluffs B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 November 2013

We enjoyed out stay at the Oak Bluffs Inn during a fall visit to Martha's Vineyard in October. The Inn is centrally located, right on the main street of Oak Bluff, the rooms are confortable and roomy, and the Continental Breafkast is a good start for a day of sightseeing.

My wife and I stayed 2 nights Oct 4 and 5 2013..
Everything was great.
Location - no more than 100 yards from the ferry terminals to Hyanis and Quonset so lugging heavy luggage was no problem and no transport (transfer) costs.
From the moment we arrived until the time we departed the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Our room (ground floor at rear) was not large but very adequate. The bathroom was large enough for us to store of large suit cases which left the bedroom free of luggage.
The serve yourself breakfast room was good and accessible 24 hours a day for that 'midnight' snack (yes even chocolate ball dispensers and coffee making).
Very close to many restaurants and also the main shopping street.
Will definitely stay here again if we travel to these parts (we are from Australia).

Having known John for a few years, it did not surprise me for one second how amazing The Dockside Inn has become. The staff and management are very accommodating, friendly, and attentive. The place is pristine and the location is unbeatable. We will definitely return as soon as we can! Thank you!!

By far the best hotel on the island. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. Loomis the virtual concierge is very helpful. The hotels location to all the sites is perfect and the harbor views are amazing. The hotel is a small walk to all the night life in town.

Very clean and wonderful staff. I would recommend to stay whenever you visit the area. Our family has already talked about coming back for the spring and this will be our place to stay. Nice view of the island and a great location.

What a perfect space to park ourselves for a two-day visit to Martha's Vineyard. We did not have a car and never ventured out of the Oaks Bluffs area because the walking, dining and shopping were all easily-accessible and very satisfying. The Dockside Inn was charming and comfortable -- they had a nice outdoor hot tub and a wonderful snack room with brew-it-yourself coffees and yummy snacks for all hours of the day or evening. The two young ladies who staffed the front desk couldn't have been sweeter or more helpful. We would definitely stay there again!

We stayed in a one bedroom suite with our toddler. Everything was above and beyond. Wonderful staff, great complimentary snack bar, beach equipment room loaded with towels, chairs, coolers, sand toys and the like. Bonus - our room's kitchenette had a huge bottle of Bacardi!! If we find ourselves back on the Vineyard, we'll be sure to stay at the Dockside!
