This hotel has a long history and was recently renovated. The rooms are small, however, our room faced the water and the view was great. Not all rooms have water views. There was a small gas fireplace and shutters on the windows. the attached restaurant was good. Sound quality could be much better as we could hear lots of noise... More

We appreciate your review and are glad you enjoyed our wonderful location, nearby parking, and helpful staff, and that you found our renovation appealing. We are very affordable for our heart of town location, and as you mentioned, our building is historic (we celebrated our 100-year anniversary in 2011). We've taken measures to control noise the best we can, but... More

The good - perfect location right in the heart of Edgartown. Conveniently located near all the restaurants and shops you would be interested in. Rooms were clean. They keep plenty of beach towels and chairs for you so you don't have to lug extra stuff to the island. Room for improvement - the front desk staff was polite however not... More

This place was awesome. The facility, location and the help we received from the staff was outstanding. The Breakfast provided in the atrium was an added plus. I cannot say enough good things about this place. I cannot wait to go back.

We had a wonderful trip on the island and were really in the middle of all the fun Edgartown had to offer! The hotel room was very clean, comfortable and had an amazing view of the water and the boats! We were so thrilled they offered parking, as parking all around the island is tough. The white shutter windows were... More

Thank you for your nice review. We are pleased you enjoyed our views, sparkling clean rooms and great downtown location. We especially appreciate your compliments on the custom island photography gracing our walls and our "beach house" style shutters. We apologize for the slightly delayed wake up call. We do find that sometimes guests don't hear our first ring, and... More

We stayed four nights at this quaint hotel located in the middle of everything. Love the location, stores in front of the hotel, all restaurants are in walking distance. The hotel was clean and comfortable but the service was left to be desired. Arrived on a Friday and ask the hotel staff for recommendations for a restaurant, her answer was... More

We apologize that our normally exceptional customer service was not on display during your visit. As the busy summer ramps up, we are in the midst of training some new staff who are not as familiar with the restaurant options as our longer-term employees. We have made some shift changes to ensure that our concierge services will not suffer again... More

We travelled to Martha's Vineyard for a 4 night vacation and having read some great reviews had high expectations ! When arriving we were not disappointed.

30% off during restaurant week, made our "cozy queen" affordable and the location is FANTASTIC. I didn't need the ocean view so it didnt matter to us. The building is old and they have done quite a bit of remodeling - but it is a noisy building that can be ignored by the simplicity and clean lines of their comfort.... More
