I have stayed all over the US and abroad, and my experience recently at the Dockside Inn ranks among the best! The owner takes time to greet all his customers, the staff is experienced and super friendly, and the room / grounds are extremely clean and tastefully decorated. And the location cannot be beat, nor can the price!! Certainly the...

We always thought Block Island was the place to make our annual summer getaway until this year. The Dockside Inn and the friendly staff changed our future plans. Clean,Quiet, Friendly,and much more will keep us coming back. I hope this doesnt ruin our secret getaway !!

I almost did review Dockside Inn because I will essentially same the same thing as everyone else. This place is wonderful! Room 35 was perfect for my girls trip to Martha's Vineyard. Three of us comfortably shared the room and loved the proximity of our room to the outdoor shower. We joked and said room 35 comes with two bathrooms...

One of the best locations. Right off the Ferry 5 minutes to your hotel. Our room overlooked the ferry landing and the action on the streets. You are close to everything dining, shopping, beaches. The hotel is very clean and our room was one with a separate room with a pull out couch and then our room had a king...

I can not write enough positive things about this hotel. Normally in the Vineyard it's customary to rent a house to be close to friends- however that's exactly what my stay at the Dockside Inn entailed. I felt like I was surrounded by friends and family :) The hotel is beautiful and in the perfect location. The owners have thought...

We enjoyed our stay at The Dockside Inn. The room was very clean and the breakfast/snacks/coffee were a nice surprise. The Inn's beach amenities were great- beach chairs, coolers, umbrellas, beach towels. The front desk staff were very welcoming and helpful during our stay! A few things worth mentioning: the bed was not comfortable, mattress was too soft and we...

The Dockside Inn is located right across from the ferry and is in the best town on the vineyard. The owner John was awesome and helped us with restaurants, and things we needed to see on the island. He is an amazing guy and really cares about his guests. I highly recommend the Dockside Inn!! I hope to make it...

Dockside Inn is a perfect place to stay in Oak Bluffs. So convenient to the ferry and restaurants yet in a quieter corner of the dock. The room was confortable and the employees were all very helpful. Loved the snack/coffee room and the addition of having beach supplies made everything so easy. Will definitely return!

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel during a friend's family event. It was an awesome experience for us since it was our first time at the Vineyards. The hotel is close to everything, we walked everywhere. The staff were great, and the coffee, fruits, snacks in the common kitchen a great treat. It was a cool to cold...
