The Madison is in a perfect location in Oak Bluffs. Walk to anything; food, ferry, beach. The rooms are beautiful and the staff is terrific. There is no on site parking, you have to rely on timing and a bit of luck to find a spot in the municipal lots or on street parking in the area around the Oak Bluffs Police Station. But I had no problem with it at all. Once I was parked I was able to walk to anything quickly and easily. I'll be staying there again!

Close to everything. Easy walk from the boat. Great bike storage. No parking - not a problem in October, which is sort of off-season. May be an issue in-season.

Quiet, comfortable, but smaller rooms, which doesn't matter because one should be out and about. Good self serve coffee and fruit.

Wonderful place!
Right in the middle of Oak Bluffs and steps away from the ferry! Great spot for a MV vacation. Loved it!

I typically don't take the time to write reviews, but the owner of this Inn was so nice, helpful and definitely involved in her business in a good way that made me feel we owe her a good review. The Inn was smaller than I expected, the parking is a little issue, but the clean comfortable room, and the very helpful and pleasant staff is what stands out and are superior to any expectations. I would definitely stay there again.
