Amazing location right outside the port and on the center of Oak Bluffs. The rooms are nice and clean. Rates are reasonable for MV.

I stayed at The Surfside with my sister during Illumination week and will NEVER STAY again! We have stayed there several times in the past and have had a great time but this time was very different. The room itself was in tough shape. The mattress was unbelievably stained with what looked like blood. (I have photos.. if anyone would...

Not sure why the negative reviews, but we had a wonderful stay at the Surfside. We were there during Hurricane Irene, and spent quite a bit of time in the room due to the weather, but we were happy. The room was large, the bathroom was updated, beds comfy. I agree that there was a slightly mildewy smell upon first...

The Surfside is a wonderful motel and one of the best place to stay in Oak Bluffs! The rooms were large and very clean. The beds were super comfy and the built-in AC provided some much needed reprieve from the humid weather. The staff were very friendly, and even though we ended up staying during the recent hurricane, they called...

What a dirty, foul-smelling hovel of a motel! The pungent smell of mildew was so overpowering that I couldn't sleep at night. The rugs, the chairs, the bedspreads were stained and filthy!!!! The bathroom was literally falling apart. How an island as beautiful and pristine as Martha's Vineyard can have such a disgraceful motel is beyond belief! The owners should...

I booked this room based on the reviews, but was sorely disappointed upon arrival. The room we were given was not only outdated, it was not clean and the bathroom was a disaster, it was literally falling apart, with pieces of molding missing along the baseboard. There were many bugs in the room that looked like flying spiders. This motel...

We just returned from the MV Surfside and can't wait to go back. The pet friendly atmosphere and staff were very refreshing. The location is perfect due to everything you need being within a 5 minute walk. The room was comfortable and our dog Max was on his first vacation and had a great time with the early morning walks...

Just returned from our first trip to Martha's Vineyard and was very happy with the choice of our accommodations at the Surf Side considering I picked it off the internet without any recommendations. We had terrific service from Bob when we booked it, and the entire staff when we got there were so fabulous and courteous. Also enjoyed the pets...

This motel was a great find. It is located right in the center of Oak Bluffs, walking distance to restaurants, shopping, bars and beaches. The room was very clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. It is a pet friendly hotel and all dogs were well behaved. I was greeted by Bob at the front desk who was so upbeat...
