Earlier this month, my family and I stayed at The Harborside Inn in Edgartown on Martha's Vineyard. The beds were comfortable and the Inn was spotless. Most of all the staff was friendly, competent and helpful. When one cab company told the staff member that they could not get a cab to us for half an hour, the staff member... More

The reservation agent did warn us that the only room available was tiny--and it was! But it was immaculate and quiet and quite well air conditioned. The communal porch was excellent--roomy and with a great view of the harbor. The staff is quite pleasant and the pool and grounds spacious--for the centre of the city--and pretty.

This inn is situated, as others say, right on the harbor, and the fact that it is in the heart of Edgartown and has a pool really make it stand out. Our experience varied dramatically given that we stayed in two different types of rooms during our time here. This is a place where it pays to ask a lot... More

Very convenient for those who use town moorings or slips in the harbor -- it is just a very short walk from the launch service. Small pool, nice grounds with beautiful flowers. Rooms vary in size and price. Some face busy street others marina. All have great modern bathrooms. Free coffee served in the morning.

Just returned from several days at Harborside Inn in Edgartown. We LOVE this place and stay there every year. It is the only hotel in Edgartown that is DIRECTLY on the water with fabulous views of the harbor and million dollar yachts and is centrally located to all of the restaurants and shops in downtown Edgartown. Adjacent to the Atlantic... More

Martha's Vineyard takes a long time to get to so it was great to have such a nice hotel for our four day visit. Great location, reasonable rates and helpful staff. Even during such a busy weekend it was a pleasure to be there and was very relaxing.

I want to start by saying that I would have rated this hotel as 'Excellent' had it not been for one thing - the laundry area. I needed to do some laundry and they have a huge laundry area for the owners. I had to pay $30.00 for a very small bag of laundry since I was not an owner.... More

The Harborside Inn is located at 3 South Water Street in Edgartown, MA. This elegant and historic inn is located on the harbor and is in the heart of town. The Steamship Authority Ferry from Woods Hole to Oak Bluffs is a short 45 minute ride. The Harborside Inn also welcomes boaters as they offer private dockage as Edgartown's only... More

While I will say that we enjoyed our time in Edgartown. We did not enjoy starting our first night having to request new sheets for our bed and changing them ourselves, due to the 4-5" diameter stain on the sheets that were on our bed at check-in. They appeared to been laundered, just not able to remove the stain. Not... More

We spent our honeymoon at this Inn in 1975. We came back for the first time this year to celebrate. Staff was amazing towards us. Our room overlooks the harbor with a spectacular view. We have a photo of same view in 1975. So much fun comparing our old photos to the new(and virtually the same) MV. Inn is very... More
