“What a gem!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Our experience here was wonderful from the moment we step into their lobby. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Our room was clean and comfortable. We made use of the hot tub and outdoor seating. There is an awesome outside shower to rinse the salt water off. I only wish we could have stayed longer in order to enjoy the island more. We will definitely be back!

What a fantastic place! Great location, wonderful people and lovely rooms. Providing everything one could want from popsicles to beach towels. Helpful and knowledgable staff - a special "thank you" to Melissa! There is no reason NOT to stay here and no reason to stay anywhere else!

The location of this hotel is excellent. Right on the harbor, walking distance to the Oak Bluffs beach, steps away from Nancys. The solarium with food all day long plus the beach gear room, where you can find everything you need for a relaxing day on the beach are definitely a plus. The best cost benefit in Oak Bluffs for sure!

Room Tip: I stayed on room 28 at the back of the building. Better price, silent, good choice.

John and his staff are welcoming and do all they can to help. The rooms are a good size, our bed was comfortable and it was nice having a table and chairs out on the deck. The inn is right opposite the best eating places and bars in oak bluffs and is just a few steps from the ferries. We took our car and the inn has about 6 parking spaces: when these are full they give a permit which enables the car to be placed over night along the ocean front. The car is useful if trying to visit the whole island quickly but the town bus in fact covers most of the island (except chappaquidick). A definite bonus is the provision of cool box, beach chairs, parasol and beach towels for guests. The breakfast room is open all day for complimentary coffee, muffins, ice creams and cold drinks. My wife spent her 60th birthday here and the staff arranged for a wonderful cake to be delivered to our room. John is a mine of information about the Martha's Vineyard and I would certainly recommend this as a good place tostay in oak bluffs. The Inn was totally redesigned 2 years ago and is a very good example of contemporary hotel design with some eye-catching wall coverings in the reception area and very nice furnishings throughout.

Room Tip: our corner room had nice view of the harbour.

We had a great experience at the dockside: the staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and the bed comfortable, the location was perfect for our pre- season vacation. Although not a bnb, a light breakfast of coffee, tea, yogurt, oatmeal and fresh donuts was provided daily as we're snacks throughout the day.

Room Tip: Upstairs end units have beautiful view of the harbor. Highly recommend a pre or post season stay

Great location. Close to ferry dock, harbor, and all the shops and restaurants. Can't ask for more. Very clean and modern decor. Staff was very friendly. We were celebrating our 10th anniversary and a "baby moon" and they gave us a bottle of sparkling cider. An unexpected treat! Definitely will stay here again.

If you're looking for warmth, hospitality and a terrific location, along with a great room, this is the place. Thoughtful amenities range from a beach gear room, fresh pastries, to a snack/coffee room. Staff and proprietor go out of their way to make you feel welcome.
