“VERY Clean, Overall Great Stay.”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Stayed here one night with my family. Rooms were spacious, CLEAN, nice toiletries, and the Keurig coffee in the lobby was a nice touch. Location is great and close to the ferry. My only complaint would be that it's a little noisy, but that's because of the location on a busier street. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the street.

Never been dissatisfyed with our stay, loved the inn and it's staff. Rooms are clean and quaint. No to far from the Oaks Bluff dock. Love the night life, restaurants. Check in time is at 3:00 pm (no earlier), they have a room for you to store your luggage.

So the first time we stayed here for last year for 4th of July and it was an excellent experience. There was an older woman who manned the desk and she was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Considering it was our first time on the island everywhere she suggested was a perfect fit for what we were looking for. It is a very cozy place and you really do feel like you're at home. I love this place!

This time around was a little different. The room and stay was consistent with last year so we rate that as excellent however the person manning the desk part of the time was a different lady. We asked about a place and she immediate jumped is telling us she can't tell us anything and no she can't give us any information so on an so forth. I was so shocked by that reaction I was speechless. Seriously you are there to give you opinion and suggestions... nothing wrong with that! After a minute of convincing her we just wanted to know what bus took us there she finally answered out question. It was the weirdest experience I've ever had at a hotel/Inn and I've stayed at a good number of them over the years.

With that said there was a younger lady who I believe was the owners daughter? Not 100% sure but she was amazing! VERY helpful and knowledgeable and gave us great recommendations.

I would highly recommend this place even with that strange reaction from the other woman. It's a great location and very comfortable! Only reason for 4 stars and not 5 was that woman. I just felt it tainted our experience a bit in a negative way.

We stay here as a family group each year on the Vineyard - a few days for the collective "girly" girls to gather and catch up in a beautiful, relaxing setting. The amenities of the Madison Inn (popsicles! beach towels! the community Keurig machine!) are nice touches for a summer visitor looking to kick back and just be - and the short (2 blocks) walk from the ferry terminal is always appreciated by the older members of our group. Each year we marvel at the cleanliness of the Inn and love the helpful staff, who can recommend where to eat the best breakfast/lunch, to making dinner reservations on the fly, if needed. Best of all, this is an inn where quiet moments are encouraged - I personally love that the Inn posts "quiet time" from 10 p.m. - 7 a.m. in the patio area. The rooms are nicely sized - our double room could have accommodated 4 people without much discomfort - and for two people traveling together, it was perfect. If you appreciate charm, comfort, and cleanliness, this place is for you! :)

Room Tip: Rooms 9 and 10 on the second floor (outside access, above the patio) are very quiet and have a "...

I am very particular about where I stay. I don't like lace, or frills or wall to wall carpeting...I want a pleasant room that is spotless with white linens. Madison Inn was all of that and more. It's hard to find a place to stay that was as clean as Madison. Only gripe is that they need onsite parking. But there is free parking in the area and a loading spot for guests while checking in and out. Very reasonable. Will stay again.

We had checked other places, but settled on the Madison Inn and after walking around, we were pleased with our choice. The room was clean and nicely appointed. The coffee bar with all my favorite Keurig coffees and the morning sweet breads, fruit, granola bars and afternoon cookies was great. We were close to the ferry and the bus, which was convenient to get around to sightsee the island. The enclosed patio was a nice place to sit with coffee or bring back takeout and eat outside. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Loved our stay!

Room Tip: We were outside and upstairs and found it to be quiet and private.

We stayed here this past weekend and loved it. It was perfectly located a street away from the Ferry so easy carrying our bags there and in the heart of the Small town. The Inn Was very clean, nicely decorated and our room was very comfy. The owner and her daughter were taking turns at the front desk and they both were great at suggestions on what there was to do around the Island.
They had had all the extras for you. Beach coolers, blankets, towels, etc and they also had popcicles that my boyfriend couldnt get enough of! What a great touch for the guests!
We cant wait till we stay again and a bit longer. Highly reccommend!
