I have stayed here in the past before this new upgrade and change of ownership. It was a tied old structure but you got a realtively clean room and friendly staff, plus the price was in line with the facilities. The new renovation is clearly an improvement of asthetics with new colors, carpet and tile. The rooms and baths are...

We're surprised to hear that you didn't find our changes to be beyond dramatic as most of our guests who'd stayed at the Wesley Hotel have! Despite our hugely extensive renovation, many of our rates haven't increased more than 10% over last year's pre-renovation rates. We strategically did not change the sizes of rooms and bathrooms, as we sought to...

SummerCamp Hotel in Oak Bluffs MA – My husband and I were excited to stay at this hotel. We have been coming to Martha’s Vineyard for years and stayed in many of the great B&B’s and Inn’s on the island. When we heard that the Wesley had new owners and was being completely renovated we jumped at a chance to...

Thanks for reviewing your stay at our historic Martha's Vineyard hotel! We're happy to hear you enjoyed our tasteful and fresh renovations. Due to the constraints of a historic property, we were limited on our abilities to change such things as bathroom size, but we worked hard to make them work extremely well with the smaller space they're allotted (bathroom...

We spent a weekend here to celebrate our anniversary. The decor was really nice. Our room was quite small but clean. The personnel, although quite friendly, didn't seem very interested in providing great service. There was supposed to be an ipad in the room which we never saw. I left an electric toothbrush behind and it was apparently thrown away.

On a recent visit to Martha's Vineyard, I decided to restrict my exploration to Oak Bluff's in an attempt to achieve a more in-depth experience, and Summercamp proved to be the perfect base of operations for this endeavor. The decor is modern, yet maintains the look and feel that the island is known for (with a LOT less madras, thankfully)....

As others have mentioned, this hotel has been recently renovated. Since I have stayed at several Lark Hotels, I knew what to expect in the design. It was right up to their high standards, though perhaps some might find the summer camp theme a bit quirky. Bed was incredibly comfortable, availability of coffee all day was wonderful, front desk staff...

This was my fourth time staying at this property. However, this is the first time since it's been renovated and under new management. The renovations are lovely!

With fun chairs and "swings" throughout, they did an incredible job of recreating the "Summer...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Fully Renovated - now open for the 2016 season! Formerly the historic Wesley Hotel, the new Summercamp hotel invites you to be a kid again at our whimsically renovated Martha's Vineyard hotel. This new incarnation is designed as a nod to Oak Bluffs' history as a summer "camp" destination for the Methodist Church and reflects the rustic, retro and nostalgic touches that any former campgoer (or former child) can embrace! Gaze at the harbor from your deck chair, grab a snack from the Camp Canteen, or play ping pong or Twister in the game room. Discover beautiful beaches, fine and casual dining, and eclectic shopping in the heart of Oak Bluffs. Located across from the harbor in historic Oak Bluffs, our reimagined Martha's Vineyard boutique hotel is a nod to the past with an eye to the future. Offering Martha's Vineyard hotel accommodations for every lifestyle and budget, Summercamp is your place for fun and relaxation of this magical island. ... more   less
