The room was excellent & clean, great views, and the amenities were perfect for our vacation. Beach amenities were all available. The staff is always friendly & helpful. We have been vacationing in Oak Bluffs for over 10 years, the last two have been at the Dockside Inn and we are looking forward to next year.

The room we had was cute, if not a bit small, but we managed to squeeze two adults and an infant into the room. What was truly exemplary was the staff—what an exceptional group! When I checked out, I had forgotten my suit in the closet, along with my wallet. I didn't realize that it was missing until I arrived...

We stayed here one Friday night in August because we couldn't get a ferry reservation for Saturday. I really just needed a place to sleep until we could check into the house we rented on Saturday but got so much more. We stayed in Room 3 which is on the smaller side but very comfortable bed, great bathroom and a...

We had a family vacation with four rooms for three nights. The inn is very clean and very nice. The kids all had a great time. We are looking forward to going back next year and this September. We all enjoyed the amenities that the Inn has to offer. The kids like to get their own breakfast.

Being our first visit to Martha's Vineyard, we did not know what to expect. I must say that we are very happy with our selection of the Dockside Inn. It is right in the middle of all of the action. We came in on the Rhode Island Fast Ferry and the hotel is just steps away. There are fantastic restaurants...

The Dockside Inn is a very convenient place to stay if one wants to be in the Oak Bluffs center area. For Martha's Vineyard in the height of summer, the room prices are manageable. They have a storage room for luggage if you get there early, or need to store before leaving the island. There is a great beach supply...

Thank you for writing in to share your experience with us; we are glad that you appreciated our location, staff, amenities, etc. We do apologize for the street noise that you experienced; you were here at a particularly busy time of the season and yes, the various delivery trucks can start their day early and that can be a bother...

We had a great time on our first trip to Martha's Vineyard! Dockside Inn was a great location to the ferry. Desk staff was great. Very informed with suggestions. The solarium was well equipped with snacks, coffee, treats etc. It is situated right near shopping and restaurants and everything was within walking distance to the Dockside!

This hotel is in a fabulous location in the center of Oak Bluffs. You are a few minutes away from the harbor, Circuit Ave and lots of attractions, rental cars, including start points for tours. We got room 1 right o the front porch with rocking chairs and big lawn couches. The room was well airconditioned and the staff serviced...
