“Madison Inn, Martha's Vineyard, MA”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

The Inn is an old building but very well maintained and absolutely clean and tidy. The plumbing was good and there were enough electrical outlets. The staff were charming, friendly, and most accommodating. They have a nice enclosed patio with tables and chairs and a front porch overlooking a quiet one way street. It's walking distance from everything in town and they will store your bags after checkout. I will stay there again.

The inn is located right in downtown Oak Bluffs, a short walk from the ferry. My room was directly above reception, the one with the small balcony. It was cute, clean, and comfortable. It was not the high season, so street noise was not an issue. The best thing about the Madison Inn was the service. Everyone was so helpful. We were impressed with the 'extras' - from the coolers to take to the beach to the cookies. They even had a place to store our bikes.

Room Tip: Rooms further from the street have less street noise.

My husband and I, along with our son's family, spent the weekend at the Madison Inn. It was charming and reasonably priced. Out accommodations were excellent. Rooms were quite spacious and very clean. The inn keepers were friendly and very accommodating. They gave us fine advice before we arrived and once we were there. We enjoyed meeting in the comfy lobby and playing some of the games from their shelves. We highly recommend staying at the Madison Inn in the center of Oak Bluffs.

My fiance and I spent 2 nights at the Madison Inn and the accommodations were even better than we expected. The room was beautiful and clean. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. They offered us everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We would definitely stay there again and recommend the Madison Inn to anyone looking for a wonderful place at an amazing price.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 7 and loved it!

My daughter and I had a lovely day stay the Madison Inn. The owner and staff are extremely thoughtful and pleasant. We had room #1 which had two twin beds and a balcony at the front of the house (overlooking the street). The room was very sweet and the bathroom was spacious. Everything was extremely clean and crisp. A great value!!!

Room Tip: Room #1 was perfect for us but not for someone who may be bothered by street traffic/activity in the...

We made our reservation for May back in March based on the website photos and the room was as delightful as the pic. Blanche then upgraded us to a larger room (off season) no charge! All the little extras were great, just like going to my favorite aunt's house for a visit. If I go to MV next year it will be here.

My husband and our daughter stayed in room #15 for 8 nights when the place we'd planned to stay on island didn't quite work out as planned. What a pleasant surprise the Madison Inn was!

From the pastries + coffee + fresh fruit out 24/7 to the (very!) warm welcome to the (very!) kind, congenial, respectful staff to the great location to the price, there was nothing about our stay that did not exceed my expectations... In fact, I would (and already have!) recommend the Madison Inn to friends and family.

I will say this one thing: If you are a light sleeper (we are not!) do not choose room #15. We were in the only room (that I'm aware of) that's right by the street. This was great for us, because my daughter can be noisy at times. But just as an FYI because, while it is muffled, you can hear some street noise from this particular room.

And just as a separate note, the shoulder season rates in May and October are really exceptionally low for what is offered and being on Martha's Vineyard. Considering that's my favorite time of year on island, it felt like a real steal.

OH -- separate small detail -- the TOILETRIES were very nice. I really appreciated the extra thought and touches that went into details like that, the EIGHT large towels waiting for us, the Cape Cod potato chips and water bottles, the local guide, ETC. There are just too many details to list... more keep coming to mind... :-)

Room Tip: Room #15 is noisier but set aside so can be good when traveling with a child. If not a very light sl...
