When we arrived after a stressful day I requested to upgrade and expected to pay more but the front desk staff informed me that she already upgraded us ( we had two room ) for free. The rooms were beautiful and large... THANKSGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was excellent . The Holiday festivities were nicely done and well attended.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had been very curious about life on the Vineyard off-season, after spending a week during the summers for many years. We found an attractive rate thru Expedia, and jumped at the chance to stay at the Harbor View for a weekend. The price was what we would pay at a chain hotel on the mainland, and we found the hotel room and condition warranted that […] rate. We were not able to understand how people could rationalize the rate charged on-season. The room was on the small side, made so by the king-sized bed. The bed was quite comfortable, we must say. There was chipping paint in the bathroom, a light bulb out in the hallway, things that a Five Star Hotel wouldn't allow. The staff was pleasant, but we spent most of our time outside the hotel, enjoying the weather and the serenity of the off-season, so we didn't need to interact with them much. We had a good view of the lighthouse, and even saw a bit of a sunrise. All in all, our stay was pleasant, made so by the pleasant days and cools nights of a quiet island.

"Quintessential island hotel"
Great location with beautiful views of the bays and ocean. Classic style Hotel/Inn with large character filled rooms. This is not a cookie-cutter style chain hotel. Friendly staff in both the restaurant, bar and housekeeping. An easy walk to Edgartown attractions. You even have your own private lighthouse.Genuine Expedia guest review
We loved everything about the hotel except the restaurants. the menus were very pretentious including no normal options. The service was great, the rooms were cleaned early and well. We went out of season so it might have more options for food during the summer but not now. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful Fall Getaway"
Recently returned home from a wonderful stress free vacation in Marthas Vinyard, MA. Had a great stay at the Harbor View Hotel, Edger Town. Would highly recommend it to friends and family. Look forward to going again next year.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This place has a great feel to it. Beautifully decorated and the views can't be beat. Nice amenities, very attentive staff, and our bed was to die for - so comfortable. Plumbing upgrades (shower/tub) wouldn't hurt, but overall this hotel was excellent.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful place to stay"
One of the best hotel views you will find on Martha's Vineyard. Just a 7 minute walk to downtown. Good parking. The walk across the street to the lighthouse and beach during sunrises and sunsets can't be matched. Water Street restaurant served a good breakfast and I had possibly the best steak I have ever eaten there. It was worth taking our car over […] on the ferry, we were not at the mercy of the transit system. We drove everywhere which enabled us to see everything. Great Great hotel. Highly recommend.

"Best Hotel in Edgartown"
Harbor View Hotel was a beautiful hotel to stay!! We would highly recommend it to anyone! We stayed in the main house in room #306! We had a king bed and a partial ocean view! The room itself was very comfortable and well appointed. Staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. Atmosphere was simple and elegant. We had only one concern and that was […] the restaurant with the beautiful view closes down off season and you have only Henry's Pub for dinner with a very limited menu. Menu is deceiving in that it has two categories Small Plates and Large Plates. My husband ordered the strip steak in the large plates and it came sliced with approximately 8 small pieces of steak much more like an appetizer than a meal. Also it was served with french fries. It was $38 and definitely was not of the quality he was expecting or the portion. Saying all this, he stated his concerns to the waitress and we feel they responded very appropriately by offering another portion which he declined. However when we received our bill they took off his meal and a glass of wine. In the end we were very pleased with how they handled the situation. However the menu is very misleading. Had breakfast the next morning in the larger restaurant with the beautiful view and it was very good. in the end, we loved this hotel and would definitely stay here again!!

The hotel was awesome! Staff friendly and courteous and the room was very clean. Since it was the off season their was not a whole lot going on on thre other islands however, enjoyed myself dearly. Much needed escape; quiet, comfortable, nearby shops amazing, lobster and sunset on Menemsha to die for. Would recommend for an adult solitude.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Traveling the east coast"
First time ion the island. The hotel has a good location and is within walking distance to the town. Nice leisurely 10 min walk. Loved the ambiance of the area and the hotel. Sat on the front porch and read while enjoying a glass of wine and the view. Really nice. the pool was much larger than we had thought although we didn't use it since we were ther […] in October. The only word of warning I can give id book your ferry in advance.. We were stuck for many hours trying to get back because of the seasonal changes to their schedule. The port authority said no reservations required... Wait lines were unguaranteed so buy a ticket well in advance. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We took our son, his wife and grandson there with us....we wanted to treat them but we were disappointed in the rooms. The area and setting was nice but the hall and rugs leading to the rooms and inside the rooms were stained badly needing an update. The baths looked like a child caulked around toilet and sink areas. There was lukewarm water and it […] never warmed up to hot after 20 mins. but did get a bit warmer. Only one soap for the shower and sink so you had to make sure you had it where needed. Noise from upstairs room was loud. Slider to the balcony was hard to open ....the lock was not easily understood and could have caused a problem if there was a fire.....it took us a while to firgure out how to unlock it. The fine dinning area was not open the night we were there. There were a few more things that we jotted down but I won't go on. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Excellent service. The consierge deserves special praise for her helpful suggestions and recommendations. She was "spot on". The rooms in the front hotel are the best as they have a water view. No view of the water from the other locationsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location but pricey!"
Our room was comfortable and spacious. Upkeep of the outside buildings is laking however. The main hotel was beautiful and has a fantastic view from the porch. Can walk to town and great restaurants from hotel. Very friendly staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Beautiful Hotel & view !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Picture-perfect hotel and setting. The staff couldn't have been nicer. All of the amenities when we needed them. My husband arranged for a surprise birthday cake for me in the dining room and the hotel staff secretly arranged for it to happen with everyone walking in to sing Happy Birthday - I will definitely stay there again and will refer my friends […] to it as well Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Wonderful Retreat"
The views from the Harbor View Hotel were breathtaking. It was a place to relax, explore and experience the beauty and quaintness of Martha's Vineyard. I would highly recommend it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful hotel, serene location"
The only thing that was not perfect was the mildewy smell just inside the entrance to our building (we were not in the main section). Fortunately, it was not in our room. I highly recommend this lovely place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Less than clean for high end hotel for this room."
Harbor view Hotel is a high end hotel in an excellent location at the end of the N. St. We had the handicapped room for the 2 double beds rather than 1 king bed. We are not handicapped. The carpet was soiled and frayed/ worn around the edges. After the 2nd day we noticed that the carpet was not being vacuumed adding to the poor condition of the carpeting. […] I believe that this would never had occurred in the rooms in the main building where the high end rooms were located. The room was in a motel like facility. This room was maintained at a lower level because it was a lower priced. Also, the room was never dusted. We had to request a menu for room service, ours was missing. We had to request supplies for the coffee maker. The view from our room was very pleasant facing a wooded area. The exterior of the hotel is aesthetically attractive and well maintained. The lobby, the veranda, the restaurant were well appointed. All of this was in stark contrast to our dingy room. In reference to the staff the staff in the lobby were very helpful. I don't believe the housekeep- ing staff was sufficiently supervised. I did not go to Martha's Vineyard and stay at the Harbor View Hotel to be a consumer advo-cate. It became tiresome making requests. It was also disheartening to have a room that was less than clean. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Our stay at the Harbor View was a bit of a disappointment. I didn't realize that I reserved a room in another building situated behind the main building and therefore we had no view of the water. Our room was in a building that resembled an old motel. Also upon arrival we were informed that there was a wedding at the hotel and that we wouldn't be able […] to use the main dining room for lunch or dinner on one of the two days we were there. I was very disappointed and would've appreciated being made aware of this prior to my arrival. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"quaint hotel with phenomenal views!"
We only got to stay one night, but it was delightful! While the hotel is actually quite large, it has a very relaxed, quaint, b&b feel. This is an old hotel that has been well maintained and still maintains a lot of its old style charm, yet has all the modern amenities. The King bed was extremely comfortable as were the pillows. The robes, locally sourced […] soaps & lotions were also delightful. The bathroom was plenty bright for make-up & shaving, while the room had soft recessed lighting as well as lamps. There was a refrigerator in the room (no mini-bar) and a nice size flat screen tv. The location couldn't be better - at the end of Water Street after a row of elegant old white sea captains' homes, within walking distance of the main Edgartown Center. The Huge wrapping veranda on the front of the hotel overlooks the water and the lighthouse affording an excellent place to watch the sunset. We ate at the Water St restaurant within the hotel for dinner which was elegant, yet not stuffy. I had the cucumber gazpacho & the sweet potato gnocchi for dinner. Both were appetizers. Both delicious, and beautifully prepared, but warning: the portions are not huge (i think there were maybe 7 small gnocchi) My husband had the salt & pepper squid which he said was amazing. He also had the local oysters & tuna, which were beautifully prepared. He said they were both good, but not as amazing as the squid. I'd highly recommend this hotel and hope to return sometime soon Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Greatlace. Very relaxing and yet still nearby multitude of options for fun. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and goal seemed to make sure we had a great time.

"great hotel for Edgartown"
The Harbor View is a very nice hotel with gorgeous views of the Edgardtown Lighthouse. The "main" part of the hotel is beautiful and has been fully renovated. The large wrap-around porch is picturesque and very inviting. Guest feel comfortable lounging in the rocking chairs and the staff is very gracious and quick to offer a drink. Overall, the grounds […] of the hotel are beautiful and you can tell have been fully renovated. The one large "motel" portion of the hotel where we stayed (for $400 a night--the "cheap rooms") were much older and had not be renovated. The rooms were nice but not worth $400. We could hear guests clomping around above us and in the hallways. The bathrooms were worn. The beds were nice and the decor totally fine but I expected more since the main part of the hotel was so beautiful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Disappointing room near pool"
Our room near the pool felt like it was in a basement. It was dark, had ceilings so low I could Touch them with the palm of my hand (I am 5'7) and the most cramped bathroom I have ever been in at a hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
quiet location in cottage. Staff - as good as it gets.Genuine Expedia guest review
There is a reason why celebrities have stayed here. From the moment I arrived to the time departed, this hotel impressed with its beauty and wonderful staff. Will definitely be going back and highly recommend it. Edgartown is also the city you want to stay in if you want to get the true cozy Martha's Vineyard experience. Heads up, summer season isn't […] official in Martha's Vineyard until June 21st. Go anytime before then to lock in great rates and beat the crowds. Mid-June is plenty warm enough.

overall comfort was that the room and furnishings were a bit damp. The air conditioner thermostat was hidden in a closet and therefore our first day was chilly until we had to ask if there was an individual thermostat for the room. Our room was on the ground floor, and therefore had a small outside porch that opened onto a public space / walkway. We […] found our porch sliding doors unlocked two times after maid service - not cool. The hotel was notified of this dangerous security issue. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I found most of the staff was not familiar with the hotel at all. I think this speaks to the fact that they were mostly college students and new to the property. When you asked a question, such as, how late is breakfast, they'd go through a chain of people to find out. This one stands out for me. There was a mini fridge in my room....empty. I called […] the concierge for 30 minutes. No answer. Finally front desk said it was because I wasn't in the main house. Then why the fridge? Subpar service for a big price. The bartender at the pool wasn't even a bartender. Had to walk her thru the pina collada. Not worth the price. One day housekeeping didn't do my room till 4 pm. You get the idea.

I love this hotel! The decor is beautiful. The view is fantastic. The location is gorgeous on a lane with breathtaking homes and scenery. Its a short walk to all the shops and restaurants, has a beach right across the street and an outdoor heated pool. We enjoyed the pub and the restaurant is lovely too. I wasn't in love with the menu, would have liked […] to see a few "less fully" options but the room and its panoramic view was still great. I paid for a queen room and got a king room that was also pretty, serene and comfortable with a nice view. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We stayed at the Harbor View for our Honeymoon! The hotel was beautiful and the staff was very nice.

The Harbor View is a stunning hotel situated in the most ideal location in Edgartown. It is close enough to all of the shops and restaurants (5 mins walking) but far enough that you can escape.

If anything, the staff is over-zealous. They took our luggage and said our room would be ready shortly. Our camera and jackets were packed and we were without those for the following 5 hours. We were promised rooms on the first floor but were given 3rd floor rooms although when I mentioned the e-mail I had received from them, the room situation was […] remedied.
