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

This hotel looks good but the food in the main dining room is appalling. Arrived at hotel to find firstly our keys would not work "twice". We were given twin beds even though all the advertisements show lovely rooms with a main queen or king bed. The bathroom washbasin has mould around it including cracks in the basin. Go to... More

We stayed here on our trip around New England and were upgrading on arriving into an apartment with a lounge dinning area, small kitchen,bathroom and large bedroom. The location of the hotel is wonderful and we both fell in love with Edgartown. The hotel was in easy walking distances of the shops and restaurants and across the road the beach... More

There are many wonderful things about the Harborview Hotel... To start with The concierges Darlene and Jill were wonderful. Most of the rest of the staff were very accomadating. And the views and wrap around porch are quite wonderful. Our room was so disappointing . To me it was a very average space. I would think nothing of it if... More

We stayed two nights here while on a tour of Cape Cod, the Islands and Newport. The hotel is charming and comfortable in a quiet setting. It's across a quiet road from the wide beach with the water beyond. The lighthouse adds to the view and is accessed along a short walk toward the sea. The room was comfortable with... More

The main building and cottages are wonderful, but the Captain May? sic is not worth the prime season price. Needs help in this respect, but there are many great features to the hotel. The porch and the restaurant are wonderful. The location is far away from the boonie tourists, and the staff is attentive and considerate.

What more could you ask for in Edgartown that rocking on a porch looking at the harbor and lighthouse. A path from the front of the hotel leads you to the lighthouse. We enjoyed a 2 night stay with Tauck Tours. Our room was located upstarts in Mayhew building. No view with trees outside of balcony.No elevator so be prepared... More

With such an amazing view in a phenomenal location, one could easily forgive the staff for an elitist or ostentatious approach. Happily however this is not the case at all - the staff here were extremely welcoming, down to earth and approachable. Great team, particularly their Director of Operations John Furnari who took the time to introduce himself at breakfast.... More

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...
