This place is not what you expect when you pay $1,000+ per night. It is run largely by nice inexperienced students, leadership and management is nowhere to be seen, even when there is an issue on reception they hide in their office behind the wall, never coming out to the front with the poor receptionist going back and forth explaining...

We love the location. Edgartown is a wonderful place to visit. The hotel has fine amenities, a lovely porch, and an incredible staff. We stayed in a two-bedroom cottage. I wish we had had a choice of one bedroom that has a king bed. It is understood that it is expensive to get supplies to the Vineyard, but be prepared... More

When you come to this hotel, the first thing you expect is having a clean and decent room! The main entrance and the lobby completely mislead you into thinking that the room you will be staying in is as neat and clean as their main entrance. The first thing you will notice when entering your room is the numerous stains... More

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay with us. I sincerely apologize for the experience you recently had with us and this level of service is not one that is a common experience for us. Our property is historic in nature and we do have some buildings that have been renovated more recently than others.... More

Arrival 6/22/2015 - Departure 6/25/2015 This was our third year staying at the Harbor View Hotel and we plan to come back again and again. Lovely grounds, convenient location, comfortable beds and tidy rooms are just some of the reasons we will be back. The view, the porch, the staff and cozy feeling you get while sipping an early morning... More

6/24/15-6/26/15....We thought the Harbor view was ok, but nothing great. The rooms seemed ok except for a couple concerns in the bathroom. The floor wasn't completely clean, and we were surprised to see that the bathroom had no exhaust fan. The check in was friendly and informative as was the check out. The pool was literally just opening the day... More

This is a very good Hotel but it is going to set you back $ 500 a night and $ 18 for a glass of white wine. The location is amazing, the two restaurants are both great, everyone who works here is nice and there is Free WIFI. Nothing bad to say except there is some renovation being done .... More

We had a great stay here, staff were attentive. Bit slow at cleaning the rooms daily (ours wasn't done until around 5pm each day and most days they forgot something), however it wasn't too much trouble for them to come and bring the missing items to us. Great location, easy walking distance into the main shopping area. Concierge was very... More

Came for 2 night stay with daughter . When we entered the captains building where our room was, we were totally grossed out by the filthy condition of carpet. Looks like a scene from a mulder only filthiest. Found our bedding cover has a large red stain on it. Pillow cases dirty as well. Paying $ 400 a night .... More

This is a charming, old place that has been maintained and improved through the years. Can't beat the location or the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff especially the Concierge crew. An incredibly large porch w comfortable seating, great views of lighthouse and Chappy, easy walk to many places to eat, drink, and shop. Comfortable rooms, good on site restaurants.
