The location of the Harbor View Hotel is outstanding with unrivalled views across the water in Edgartown. Unfortunately the hotel itself does not do the views justice for the following reasons: 1. Beware the Mayhew Building/third party booking We arrived and were allocated two rooms on the ground floor in the Mayhew Building- beware of this when booking- you are... More

I stayed at the Harbor View Hotel with my husband for a getaway honeymoon, since we live in Massachusetts but had never visited the Vineyard. When choosing a hotel, we splurged on the Harbor View because of it's fabulous location and views, its amenities (heated pool was a must given that the ocean is still *freezing* in mid/late June), and...

My husband and I stayed here the weekend before Memorial Day. This was a great time to stay here (less expensive than peak season, not as crowded, and we got the best room in the hotel). The property is absolutely gorgeous. From the wrap-around porch, the gorgeous lobby with fireplace, and the stunning ocean-view room with balcony, we could not... More

This hotel just misses getting very good review. There are great things about the hotel, but also some not so great things. Positives- The lobby area is gorgeously decorated. Big cushy furniture to relax and enjoy the gorgeous views of the water and lighthouse. They have a covered wrap around porch to sit and enjoy the same beautiful view. We... More

Had a fantastic stay, everyone was super friendly and helpful. Traveling with a four year old and a six month old isn't easy but we felt welcomed from the time we arrived to the time we departed. The room was spacious and breakfast in water Street was great!

I sought suggestions as to lodging options on Martha's Vineyard from Tripadvisor, before booking our stay. Once again, Tripadvisor didn't steer me wrong. The Harbor View Hotel is, in our opinion, probably the best lodging choice in Edgartown; if you're seeking peaceful surroundings, a fabulous view, and convenience to the restaurants and shops. The rooms are individually climate controlled (both... More

This was our first visit to the Vineyard, and the hotel came recommended by friends. Navigating to the hotel was a challenge: the streets here are all narrow and one-way. We were put in the 3-story rear wing, which has no elevators, overlooking the pool. It was comfortable but nothing special. Ain't no Ritz Carltons here. The staff is overwhelmingly... More

This hotel leaves nothing to the imagination, its breath taking panerama of the lighthouse and ocean is worth the trip. My room was in the main building, it was luxurious and much larger then the picture on the internet. The food at the Water Street restaurant was exceptional as was the service. My only complaint is with the check-in, when... More

With a finite number of hotels on Martha's Vineyard, many hotels don't have to provide good service and facilities in order to stay full during the busy season. The Harbor View is a happy exception to this rule. Its rooms are well appointed (even the rooms in the annex have been recently renovated) and the staff go out of their... More

Please accept my sincere apologies for the lack of a proper welcome and offer of assistance upon your arrival at the Harbor View Hotel.
