My wife and I stayed at The Dockside Inn during the middle week of May. We found the inn a excellent place to stay. Yes, the Dockside Inn is next to the dock, and right in the town of Oaks Bluff. They are only 5 minutes walk to the Oaks Bluff ferry. The Inn had all the modern necessities, with...

The Dockside Inn is a great experience within walking distance of everything in Oak Bluffs. Located directly on Circuit Ave, you all the dinning and shopping that Oak Bluffs offers is within a 5 minute walk. Additionally, the bus station and ferry terminal are within a 5 minute walk allowing for easy transportation onto, off, and around the island. The...

We have stayed at the Dockside Inn several times. The rooms are not glamorous but they are always clean, comfortable and in the off season reasonably priced. The location is within walking distance to restaurants, beach and the ferry.

The Dockside Inn offers excellent accommodations at a reasonable price. The Inn's location is perfect. However, the most important quality of the Dockside Inn experience is the friendly and helpful staff. During our most recent stay, we were welcomed by Hannah. Hannah was extremely helpful and could not have been friendlier. She made sure we had everything we needed and...

I met with John (the owner) and his lovely lovely wife in Spain. They've been our costumers and we started to get a conservation. We laughed a lot and I have to say they are amazingly nice and open minded people (of course the young and beautiful wife more... :)). I wish to go to visit them and spend a...

Failing to reach a receptionist at two other hotels after normal business hours two days before arriving at MV&Nantucket, I was so fortunate to have Tom on the line in just a ring or two! He patiently answered many questions about off-season ferrying and lodging with such careful attention to the needs he knew we would encounter, particularly concerning the...

Dockside Inn was a great place to stay, we needed an extra room and they gladly offered a walk in rate. Staff was friendly, informative and outgoing. We received a tour of the inn and facilities. Room was beautiful, clean, immaculate and furnishing were updated. We loved the decks, no private areas but there were chairs and the pier was...

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...

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...
