We loved our recent stay at the Harbor View Hotel. The hotel staff was highly professional and gave us 5 star service. Chad helped us to our room, which was also ready early. Great location in classic Edgartown, spacious room with comfy beds, nice patio and lovely pool area. We will be back!

I've just read the reviews about the rooms that apparently are in a bad condition. I am wondering if those rooms are located in the main building ? When I stayed there 2 weeks ago, I got a wonderful, newly renovated room - in the back building on the 3rd floor. Very spacious, and clean, all new furniture, new carpet,... More

When on the Island we used to look forward to the varied and classic buffet brunch here. However on our recent visit we found the choices sadly diminished. There was only one salad of lettuce, few desserts and not much choice for hot foods either. There were still oysters and shrimp but nothing of the splendor of past years. We... More

Went there on a romantic weekend and had a wonderful time! Enjoyed the amenities the hotel has to offer : the pool with cocktails, the porch with food and drinks ordered at Henry's, the brunch at Water street, the room with its wifi and fridge to keep a bottle of champagne for a perfect romantic getaway! The staff was always... More

My husband and I had one do our first dates on MV 10 yrs ago, so I surprised him with a quick trip.. Booked a $400 main building room with a water view.. Problems started immediately as we arrived, we were told we could check in by 3pm, but the room was guaranteed by 4pm... Of course room was not... More

Please accept my sincere apologies for your dissatisfaction regarding your recent stay with us, as we clearly failed to provide you with the level of service and facilities that you expected. Our housekeepers begin their day at 8am with a list of guests who have checked out early. With the required check-out time of 11am, we make every effort to... More

My daughters and I stayed here recently for a whole week in the most expensive room they have in the main building. When we arrived we found window air conditioners being held in with duct tape, one of the conditioners had MOLD all along the inside, several electrical outlet covers were falling off, the bathroom was very dirty, the carpet...

Please accept my sincere apologies for your dissatisfaction regarding your recent stay with us, as we clearly failed to provide you with the level of service and facilities that you expected. Being on an island has many challenges, i.e. arranging qualified technicians to repair the antique elevator in a timely manner. Although, we employ many people from different countries, we... More

We recently stayed at the Harbor View Hotel in Edgartown M.V. in a 2 bedroom townhouse. It's no wonder they don't show this unit on their website, it wouldn't hold muster with the beautifully appointed rooms they profess to have. At an exorbinant nightly rate, this dated, carpet stained unit disappointed us all. This family get away had high expectations... More

I'm a little biased because I got married here, but I had a great stay at the Harbor View last October. One tip: if it's late fall, use the hotwire blind booking feature. Nearly all 66 of my wedding guests were able to get a room at this hotel through hotwire for under $200 a night. The food at the... More

For the price it was rather disappointing. The shower curtain smelled so sour it was nauseating. The location is prime. Beautiful view and within easy walking distance to most everything in town. The room had all the usual amenities plus rather nice robes and an in room fridge. The small private porch was very enjoyable and we had a glass... More
