We are repeat guests of the Harborside Inn, and were pleasantly surprised at the major renovations. All units have been renovated and they look nothing like the website, which I was informed is being updated. All rooms have new carpet, bedding, granite in the bathrooms etc. A must see property! The views are outstanding, and the housekeeping service is the... More

We showed up and were initially shocked at how dingy the rooms were for the price. The printer didn't work, the ice machine was rusty, the doors were so sticky they required a body slam to open and close, and it was incredibly noisy. We also noticed the carpet was wet. We complained, they said it was just condensation from... More

We spoke with these guests numerous times during their stay with us. They booked two rooms, both facing the street side of the property. When they checked in they did not like one of the rooms, they claimed the rug was wet and the room was moldy. We told them that we had just completed a full renovation of our... More

Picturesque property with a fantastic view out the front of the lighthouse. We stayed in the Mayhew Building which was adequate but less special. Pool was popular but unfortunately lacked a hot tub. Helpful concierge who arranged to have a bike delivered to the hotel. A very convenient place to stay in Edgartown.

Great location! Friendly staff, great job on flower beds. Expensive but worth it. Mix of time share clients and regular guests. Very social group. Soft beds, modern showers. I will stay again. First floor is ideal for families with small kids

By far the best place to stay in Edgartown. Property is located on Edgartown Harbor. All buildings have been redecorated and all new bedding in every room, bathrooms all new, very comfy and super clean. Love this place.

This is my third time staying at the Harborside. I'm so impressed with the updates they have done to the guest rooms. Don't let the dated decor on their website pictures fool you. The rooms and bathrooms are updated beautifully. I was traveling with two small children and the only thing to note is our bathroom did not have a... More

Ah...Edgartown...and The Harborside Inn is better than ever. All 90 rooms have been renovated with heat exchanger air conditioning so you can adjust the temperature. New baths, though small, have granite countertops and tile showers with a built-in seat and quality showerhead and shower wand. New carpet, furniture, new mattresses etc. No smoking and no pets make it safe and... More

A timeshare property owned and managed by the owners, the Harborside is a fun and unique place. The setting is fabulous, right on the harbor(boat slips possible), and in the middle of Edgartown. The rooms are small, recently renovated, with little but modern bathrooms, but the property is spacious for being in the middle of town. There is a building... More

We exchanged a 2-bedroom Marriott condo for a room with a very small bathroom. The worst part was it faced a narrow street which had a Pub short steps from our bedroom window. Smokers gathered outside the entrance and each evening the music seemed to get louder. If you stay in Captains Abel or Prada rooms, facing the street, just... More

What a great spot. Hotel staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. Location was fabulous with lots of restaurants within walking distance and staff recommendations were great. The room was spotless and had a great view of harbor even though it was a studio we dis well with the free coffee available downstairs every morning. Common kitchen gave us an opportunity... More
