We booked last minute due to a reservation glitch at another hotel bit we weren't overall disappointed. Very playful decor. Very convenient to everything. Low parking and stairs galore bit other than that, a good experience.

The Lark Hotels have saved a Grand Dame hotel on the outside and painted and decorated its interior white canvas with a rainbow of summer pastels. It is relaxing, fun, and striking. The lobby, canteen, and huge porches are the places to enjoy the interior and also the view of the harbor and restaurants of Oak Bluffs. The rooms are...

Just got back from Summercamp where we stayed for two nights.The room we wanted was not available as the hotel was sold out, so we took the only room left, a standard two double bed room. It was very clean, nicely decorated and had plenty of room for two of us. The linens were very nice, but the walls are...

The Summer Camp hotel couldn't have been more perfect. Great location, decor and amenities. Every detail reflects a lot of thought into what would make a guest comfortable. Having access to lockers to store your stuff before check in and after check out was a great feature. So were the showers since I wanted to extend my stay on the...

The staff are the reason this place gets 5 stars; they were amazing - especially Will and Caroline. They were so great we extended our stay! They went way above and beyond to trip great, including calling their personal connections to find us a last minute dog sitter. (There was one manager who was a bit tough/unfriendly but it was...

This was my second stay at a Lark Hotel, and before I even arrived at Summercamp I had high expectations. Summercamp didn't disappoint, in fact it exceeded those expectations. The hotel is right on the harbor and we actually decided to boat down instead of drive down (we docked at the town harbor), and were able to dock right in...

Thank you for your kind words about our newly renovated Oak Bluffs hotel, and we're so happy two Lark Hotels have met and exceeded your expectations! As you probably have noticed, we at Lark love giving historic properties a new lease on life. We are incredibly fortunate for our inherited location (and views!) - and thrilled to hear how much...

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.

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.

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
