As a frequent visitor to MV, I usually stay at the same few places, but most were booked this time - so we decided to try the Dockside, which was new to us. What a pleasant surprise! The room was modern, clean, simple, and comfortable - everything we needed. The outside walkway/deck was a nice spot for relaxing in the... More

Our wedding party was stranded on the island due to the weather and we had to book an extra night until the ferry was operational again. We stayed at the Dockside Inn and it was a fantastic experience. As someone that has traveled a lot and stayed at every type of hotel you can imagine, I can easily say that... More

I stayed here for 2 nights during the weekend after Columbus Day & loved the hotel. It is a modern hotel in the heart of Oak Bluffs in walking distance to all attractions & the harbor in Oab. It was a peaceful respite when the town quiets down after the summer rush. Very clean rooms with all the state of... More

Off to the right of Circuit Ave is the campgrounds with the most beautiful collection of Victorian cottages. Don't forget to check out the Flying... More

Super clean room and bathroom! The bed was so comfortable. Very friendly staff. Snack room was a nice bonus. Street noise starts early so if you want to sleep in get a room in the back. Great spot to walk to shops, food and ferry.

The room was very nice with a really nice view of the harbor! We would definitely stay here again! A lot of the restaurants are within walking distance! The ferry from Hyannis is literally steps away!

Dockside Inn has a great location near the Woods Hole Ferry. The rooms are very comfortable -- well decorated, clean, excellent linens, nice bathroom. There are places to socialize (lobby, snack room, front porch rockers, back patio) and a hot tub. Best of all there is a wonderful, helpful staff.

This was my 4th time in the Vineyard in 6 years & my first time at the Dockside. I will never stay anywhere else! We felt welcome the day we arrived. The place is immaculate & grounds are beautiful. Breakfast is plentiful. We were amazed at the room with chairs, towels, & coolers for guests to borrow. It was perfect.... More

This was an ideal location for our overnight family adventure. Only a short walk from the Ferry (or right across the street depending on the boat line) and location was easy for walking to enjoy the restaurants, the architecture and the late night donuts! The Inn was comfortable, clean and charming with an outdoor lounging area. We had a room... More
