The location of this hotel is excellent. Right on the harbor, walking distance to the Oak Bluffs beach, steps away from Nancys. The solarium with food all day long plus the beach gear room, where you can find everything you need for a relaxing day on the beach are definitely a plus. The best cost benefit in Oak Bluffs for...

John and his staff are welcoming and do all they can to help. The rooms are a good size, our bed was comfortable and it was nice having a table and chairs out on the deck. The inn is right opposite the best eating places and bars in oak bluffs and is just a few steps from the ferries. We...

We had a great experience at the dockside: the staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and the bed comfortable, the location was perfect for our pre- season vacation. Although not a bnb, a light breakfast of coffee, tea, yogurt, oatmeal and fresh donuts was provided daily as we're snacks throughout the day.

Great location. Close to ferry dock, harbor, and all the shops and restaurants. Can't ask for more. Very clean and modern decor. Staff was very friendly. We were celebrating our 10th anniversary and a "baby moon" and they gave us a bottle of sparkling cider. An unexpected treat! Definitely will stay here again.

If you're looking for warmth, hospitality and a terrific location, along with a great room, this is the place. Thoughtful amenities range from a beach gear room, fresh pastries, to a snack/coffee room. Staff and proprietor go out of their way to make you feel welcome.

This Inn was great. Very clean and well maintained. We stayed in room 5 and it was a handicapped room and the bathroom was very clean and roomy. The place has a nice solarium with snacks at all times and free malted milk balls. I would highly recommend staying there and will definitely be back.

The Dockside Inn is simply lovely. It's right in the middle of Oak Bluffs, with easy walking access to everything the area has to offer. The hotel itself is charming, clean, and very comfortable.
