Dockside Inn is a “Star”

The Massachusetts Lodging Association (MLA) recently presented a “Star of the Industry Innovation Award to The Dockside Inn of Oak Bluffs for its “timely and incredibly successful development and execution of Loomis, the inn’s own virtual concierge,” according to a press release.

“Loomis is a 24/7 text-based virtual concierge system where guests can connect with Island locals to answer any and every question one might use a conventional concierge for, as well as any other want or need that may come up for a guest.”

“In two short years, Loomis has gained serious regional and national recognition, and this award by the MLA is quite an honor,” owner John Tiernan said. “It’s wonderful to be recognized in your home state, a state known for world-class hospitality and cutting-edge innovation.”

The Dockside Inn has 21 guest rooms, many of which have commanding water views of the Oak Bluffs Harbor. For more information, go to
