This is a beautiful hotel very over priced for the location. We had seniors on the trip and the walk into town was too far for them to walk..I was amazed they didn't have any kind of shuttle service to take you right down the road to eat. Only two restaurants in the hotel very pricey of course. They told... More

It's a beautiful hotel and a perfect location. We had a wonderful weekend staying here in March 2015. Our room was amazing and overlooked the charming lighthouse out front, I did not want to leave! We ate dinner one night at the bar and the food was delicious! The town itself was very peaceful (compared to summer months) and quiet,... More

The pictures online do not reflect the actual accommodations. Our rooms were basic hotel rooms, not as pictured. We were supposed to have gotten double beds and were given one king in a very small room. We actually had to get a cot. The bathroom was old and in need of repair. There were ants on the bed. The dining... More

Visited Martha's Vineyard, specifically Edgartown, over the 4th of July weekend with my son and grand daughter --- found the hotel so welcoming, with extremely helpful staff doing all they could to help find whatever information we needed. What really sold me is the attention we got when the next door building caught fire (which was put off by the... More

Ideal location. Beautiful renovations. Unbelievably poor customer service (room assignments, restaurant seating, parking, handicap accessibility, you name it -- the service was unacceptable) from the beginning to the end of my five night stay!

The hotel is well situated and the renovated main house is really quite lovely. Our room was expensive but beautiful with a view of the lighthouse. We had been here before and the striking difference this time was a noticeable shortfall in service and room maintenance. Tissues and toiletries were not replenished, staff provided incorrect information related to breakfast reservations... More

My fiancé and I just got back from the Harbor View. We had been there about 6 years previous, before they turned a number of buildings into condos. No doubt about it, the view from the front porch of the Inn is quintessential New England, ocean, sailboats, light house, beach.....just beautiful. The wrap around porch with rockers is an awesome...

It was our first time to Martha's Vineyard, so a friend who travels to Martha's Vineyard yearly recommended staying in Edgartown, specifically here. What a beautiful setting. We were here for two nights. Some of our favorite memories of our trip are sitting on the patio overlooking the lighthouse and harbor. It was quite lovely! I would say that besides... More

Other reviewers have hit the nail on the head. I think a lot of locals have built this place up to be something it's not. This is nowhere near a luxury hotel. I had a discounted room at $500/night for pool view with 2 double beds. Fortunately I was at a conference so my room was covered. Where to start,... More

Bought a beer and some food "to go" from Henry's restaurant/bar and enjoyed it all on the front porch. Apparently this is all very acceptable. The overall experience coupled with the views are second to none.
