Location is fantastic. Stayed in a two bedroom cottage which was very nice. Had a small problem with the room and it was taken care of immediately. The concierge, Darlene was so helpful in picking out restaurants, arranging an island tour and helping with a birthday surprise. Her knowledge of the island was very helpful. Would stay here again and... More

Arrived and given room on third floor of Mayhew building. After trudging up to room (no elevator; luckily, I didn't have a heavy suitcase), I found that the key card did work. I went downstairs and found housekeeping, who went to help. They had difficulty getting it to work (it was intermittent), so I returned to the front desk and... More

Very nice room - 313 - great views however due to the east facing windows there was a rude awakening at 6am. They should definitely invest in curtains, and considering their lack of concern when I mentioned it, they should also invest in better employees.

Also, thank you for bringing to our attention the perception you took away while addressing... More

My 3 kids and I took a trip out to Martha's Vineyard Monday through Wednesday. We stayed at this hotel and had an awesome time. Our room was 944 on the 3rd floor(no elevator, but not a big deal even with 3 young kids). It had a partial view of the harbor and Edgartown lighthouse with a balcony. It was... More

The hotel's location is picture perfect! I got a room overlooking the water at the end of April. The hotel was renovating, but all staff were amazing; welcoming, attentive and always smiling. I would love to come here again.

I was quite disappointed with our recent stay. I found our room to be very dirty and overlooking the pool, which was a construction site riddled with construction netting. Our room was never cleaned by housekeeping and we had to request fresh towels.

Having worked here 15 years ago and dreaming of going back ever since, I was disappointed with the current service levels, housekeeping and repair of the hotel. The lobby, bar and restaurant are beautifully decorated however the bedrooms are tired and dated and housekeeping was poor. The carpets weren't vacuumed properly the skirting boards had dust and debris on them.... More

Arrived at the Harbor View Hotel with high hopes. It looked grand and we were greeted warmly at the reception. However, we did notice some building work going on and we joked that we would probably have a room looking out onto that- not expecting that to actually be the case! After checking in at reception we were told because... More

Our 8 year old hockey team stayed at the Harborview in the Governor Mayhew building in March. The location/view was amazing. The staff was very accommodating. The parking was tricky, but there was still snow on the ground. The beds were the most comfortable beds we slept in. I would love to know what kind of beds they are, because... More

Quiet, elegant yet comfortable and cozy. Full Bar and restaurant. Best chicken wings in town! The view is really beautiful. You can watch the sunrise from the room. I have seen some of the best sunsets and sunrises fron the Harbor View hotel. Very friendly service.
