We've stayed at several places on the Vineyard throughout the years and the Dockside was the best place so far. The owner, John, and his staff were great, personable and very helpful. The rooms were great, modern and didn't have that beach musty smell. The extras you get are great! Coffee, cookies, ice cream, chips. Etc etc. and the beach...

We stayed here for two nights in late April. Lovely area with a lot of walking opportunities. Our roon was very nice, queen bed, small bathroom. We never did get an internet connection on our laptop but our phones connected after a bit, The bed was fine, a little soft for old bones. They have a great area for for...

Overall, it sounds as if these guests had a pretty nice time with us, so their 3-circle rating has us confused. We thought the gift bottle of wine for the birthday daughter was a nice touch and we're glad that they mentioned it. Our wi-fi service was never unavailable while they were our guests and if they had ever made...

This inn is lovely. The rooms are clean and modern and the staff are welcoming and accommodating. We loved the little things they offered like the snacks in the pretty solarium and the beach chairs and coolers for beach excursions. We will go back.

We came to Martha's Vineyard one cold spring weekend in April and enjoyed the quiet of the island, before the rush of the tourists. Dockside Inn was a wonderful home base, with a warm solarium with complimentary drinks and snacks throughout the day, which were a welcome treat. We also were pleasantly surprised by the hot tub in the garden,...

Very relaxing location, yet convenient to everything. The rooms were very clean and fresh. The amenities were more than we could have thought to ask for. We stayed in the suite which overlooked the harbor. The suite was exactly like the photo on the web site! We will definitely come here again!

Fantastic place. Very convenient location. Rooms are extremely clean. Good-quality linens and toiletries. There is a nice snack room open all day with free yogurt, cookies, ice cream, coffee, chips-- the kids loved it. They even have a beach room with free beach towels/coolers/chairs for guests to borrow. Downtown Oak Bluffs is only a block away. The property seems extremely...

I was very impressed not only with the friendly staff but with the accomondations. You are greeted as soon as you enter the Inn and are brought for a tour of the surroundings. They offer complimentary drinks and food. I received a water bottle as a token of appreciation from them which I will enjoy. The room was very clean...

Went for easter to get away from the craziness and family dramatics and got exactly what we wanted. The kids enjoyed the room and having the suite with the extra room was phenom. One suggestion - upgrade the fold out sofa mattress!! (we gave the kids the bedroom and we slept in the living room on the fold out sofa)...
