“Great everything”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

We stayed at the hotel for 5 days of a 7 day trip. My wife, who was in the early stages of her pregnancy, got ill and we needed to return home immediately to see our doctor. The staff was very understanding and accommodating. The hotel was in a great location, close enough to walk to the beach or to the main strip so we could enjoy lunch and dinner, yet far enough away from any disruptions. The breakfast was delicious with many choices and the cookies and lemonade were a great afternoon treat! There were many places to sit on the porch to just relax, read or just take in a nice summer breeze. Over all a great experience and a nice hotel. I highly recommend it. We had a great time.

We stayed at the Pequot the last weekend of September and we had a wonderful time. We have a 2 year old and a 4 year old and the staff and guests were all so gracious to the children even when they got a little rambunctious! The kids loved the huge porch with the rockers, and the breakfast was delicious! The mimosas on Sunday were a nice touch as well. Our room was very clean and well appointed, but i would recommend something larger than a room with 2 doubles for a family of 4. It's all that was available at the time that we booked, but when we go back we will book earlier to secure a larger room! Overall we loved the Pequot, they were very friendly and accommodating.

We stay at the Pequot every year for Columbus Day weekend and we will keep coming back for as long as we are able! We have a great family reunion here every year, where family from NYC to Boston to MD gather. Lisa and her staff are fantastic and make us feel like family. Great breakfasts and warm cookies & cider in the Fall welcomed us every day. We love The Pequot!

Two couples went midweek for 3 days 2 nights. We stayed at Pequot Inn, in Oak Bluff. Only 2 shortcomings. No phone in rooms and Keys were real keys with tags that showed the room numbers on them.

Although these should be updated to the world of today, just as a matter of safety and convenience, we still enjoyed our stay. The Inn is old and quaint. But EVERY accommodation in the Vineyard is old and quaint. In point of fact, Martha's Vineyard itself is old and quaint. And beautiful. And that's why everybody goes there!

Here, the staff is terrific, friendly and helpful and just really nice. Continental breakfast was quite good and plentiful...especially notable for the home baked muffins and quiches..making it nicer than the full breakfasts offered at just about all motels today. Ditto for the afternoon baked goods and drinks. On the first morning I mentioned that I liked a special muffin, of which I had the last. The baker came over and said she would make more the next morning...and sure enough brought some over to our table.

Rooms were small, as were bathrooms, but we expected this. Everything was clean and in good shape. The bed was comfortable and the flat screen was nice. We lucked out with perfect weather for three great days and thus recommend October for no crowds.

We would stay at Pequot again.

This is our 3rd year at The Pequot Hotel and it just keeps getting better! Over the winter they sound proofed the Annex where we always stay, rooms recently painted, looks great.
Breakfast is the best part and this year they added even more varieties of food including egg, spinach and ham tarts yum!
Staff extremely friendly and helpful.
We are making this a yearly trip and can't wait till next year.

Dear MaryAnn609,

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your recent stay at The Pequot. I’m so pleased that you returned for your third annual girl’s weekend and even more pleased that you intend to come back for the fourth annual event. We will all look forward to seeing you again!

You are correct, there were many changes made to the annex last winter as we always try to upgrade and improve The Pequot during the off-season for the increased comfort and enjoyment of our guests…Thank you for noticing! I will pass on your compliments to Tony, Wilbert and Ransford, our ace construction and maintenance crew. They will be glad to know their efforts were appreciated.

This off-season, we are in the process of repainting many rooms in the main house and the middle building, and making lots of improvements on our front porch. All the better for rocking! Even more projects will be underway soon, including but not limited to some changes in the kitchen. You mentioned the additions to our breakfast that you appreciated this season. With the upgrades we are planning in the kitchen, we will be able to offer some new surprises next season. Can’t wait for you to try them when you return in 2014!

In the meantime, have a safe and pleasant winter and I will certainly look forward to hearing from you when you call to book your next stay with us.

Until then,
My warmest regards,
Lisa

We stayed at The Pequot Hotel for a week while on our honeymoon. This was by far the best vacation we have ever had! The atmosphere was very warm and friendly from the moment we walked in. The staff was so very nice and helped us out with any questions we had through our whole entire stay. They truly went above and beyond to serve us. The free breakfast was full of variety and you can treat yourself to chocolate chip cookies and tea every afternoon, while sitting on the porch! They also has a wine and cheese night which was very enjoyable! The location was perfect as well. It is one block from the beach and just a walk away from all of the amazing sites Oak Bluffs has to offer. We would highly recommend to anyone vacationing to The Vineyard! We will be back for sure!

We just returned from our 3 day 4 night stay at the Pequot Hotel and we enjoyed our time spent there. The free breakfast was perfect for us (bagels, english muffins, oatmeal, juice, coffee, etc..). The afternoon apple cider and gingerbread cake was the best! We were on the porch everyday at 2pm, to take in the fresh air, drink some cider and read/relax. Our room was on the small side but we didn't spend much time in it so it didn't matter. The room could use a little face lift, the paint was old as there were markings on the walls and the curtains were a tinge yellow (minor cosmetics that did not affect our stay). I was hoping for a room that looked like the ones that appear on their website. The only down side to the room was the size of the shower. I am only 5'2 and rather petite and I struggled a bit in the shower as it is very small and there was not much room to move around and the bathroom had a musty smell to it like something was leaking (room #30 if staff wants to investigate). All in all, I would definitely recommend the Pequot to anyone who asks. It is in the perfect location to the ferry, beaches, and shops and dining and the staff at the Pequot is super friendly!

Dear Amy R,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a thoughtful review of your recent stay at the Pequot Hotel.

The recent additions to our expanded continental breakfast are big hits – as you shared! Our home-cooked steel-cut oats, fresh-from-the-oven scones, Blue Ribbon Coffee Cake (made here on the Island!), fruits of the day, gluten-free selections, and quiche along with our signature muffins, yogurt, cereals, and bagels have brought smiles to all of our new and returning Pequoters.

Our afternoon cider and gingerbread (served with our renowned chocolate chip cookies!) taste good on a cool day, don’t they?!

Thank you for the heads’ up about the ‘cosmetic’ touch-ups you felt we needed. Because we are fortunate enough to run at full capacity most of the time, we generally address painting and other ‘face-lift’ matters at the end of the season after we have closed. We do this so that our guests don’t have to experience the smell of paint in their room. Once we close, our construction crew/maintenance team of Tony, Wilbert and Ransford get busy with many projects to help make the Pequot beautiful and improve our guests’ experiences. I have added your suggestions to the list. Thank you!

I hope to be able to welcome you back to the Pequot Hotel next season – be sure to call me directly so that I can assist you in choosing a room that best suits your needs as we have 32 of varying sizes and configurations.

Until we meet again,

My warmest regards,
Lisa
