We visit Edgartown every December for "Christmas in Edgartown". This year we wanted to try someplace different, so we chose The Harbor View Hotel. We have always enjoyed the Lighthouse wreath lighting each year that happens in front of the hotel and thought what a better place to stay this time. The choice was a good one. The room was... More

The hotel itself is a beautiful historical artifact from days gone by, yet fairly well maintained, and clean. The rooms are adequate, some have balconies, most do not. It is a wooden structure so the floors might squeak, but it's all part of the atmosphere. The last time we stayed, there were several weddings that weekend so the lobby and... More

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for you recent review on your experience from your stay July. In order to provide great guest service we must provide a foundation of training and Island knowledge for our highly seasonal staff that often comes from areas that know very little about the Vineyard and our Hotel. As the new General Manager I can... More

What a great hotel. Great food, service and location. Only a ten minute walk to the town center with shops and restaurants. Bike rentals are available downtown, so you won't be at the mercy of mass transit. Parking is available on site if you bring your car with you to the island. The cottage we stayed was absoluting charming. While... More

Called front desk, gentleman on the phone told me that... More

I stayed here for two nights with my girlfriend to celebrate our 7 year anniversary! We stay in late November and worried about what there was to do on the island at that time. The hotel itself was great. Friendly staff that checked us in, and a very cozy lobby with fireplace. The view is also spectacular! The Edgartown lighthouse... More

Edgartown and MV are best in the off season. Quiet, friendly and beautiful. The Harbor View Hotel is open year round and is alone worth the trip. Next time I'll stay for a week and hope to get stranded.

I had my first experience with this hotel two years ago. My parents have lived on the island for 20 years, and I was putting together a silent auction for a charity fundraiser so I thought of doing a MV package. I got donations from local places like Wheel Happy and Linda Jeans, and needed a hotel to complete the... More

The HVH is beautiful and the location Is exquisite . I have to start by saying that after I booked our room for thanksgiving, I read many reviews about mold and mildew smells. I called the hotel and they were very accommodating about upgrading our room for a small fee. Everyone was lovely. We had thanksgiving dinner here and it... More

Lovely setting, attentive staff—but the rooms are mixed, some recently refurbished, many not. There are high prices for any extras. And what with the constant flow of "events"—nonstop weddings—the noise level can be disturbing: the opposite of what you hope for in what largely serves as a quiet resort hotel for older clientele.

We stayed here in October 2014 and it felt very 'out of season' but delightfully cosy and comfortable. We ate in the bar one evening and had a wonderful meal. The staff were friendly and efficient and the lady on concierge was especially helpful in planning our trip. The room was stylish and well appointed. The lounge with views over... More
