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.

Bathroom not real clean. Rooms are okay. Staff pleasant and helpful. Nicely located walking distance to main st restaurants harbor but Cost per night not worth what you get. Wouldn't come here again but conference was held here

This is a tough property to review. The hotel is very nice but for an incredibly high price you get just an average hotel room. For my almost $500 I had a view of the pool, not the water view I might have expected. As some other reviewers have said the furnishings are very dated, absolutely nothing spectacular. The first...

We booked this hotel for a few days on Martha's Vineyard (my mom and I). My mom and grandmother had tried to go before, but my grandmothers health had postponed their trip. I was very skeptical of the hotel after reading some not very pleasent reviews, but upon arrival, I didn't know what those people were talking about! First thing... More

Just returned from a short stay at Harbor view, found it to be very comfortable. The view from the front porch is absolutely wonderful. The room was comfortable and clean. While this is an older building, (we stayed in the Governor Mayhew) it was not too noisy. The doors do allow light in from the hallway but I did not... More

Set with a gorgeous view of Chappaquiddick Island, a one-minute ferry ride away (with little to see or do), this "view" hotel is a must for anyone wanting to truly experience Martha's. Try its lighthouse lemonade with blackberry cocktail. If not on the drink menu just request it from the bartender. The food is really delicious, but its hard to... More

This is one of those old properties that almost certainly stays popular ONLY because the folks in the region won't admit to themselves or each other just how bad it really is. "Dahhling, we rahhlly MUST meet at the Hahbah View..." Don't believe it. I will say that the view from the front of the hotel, sitting in one of... More

We stayed here for one night and got in late, leaving early the next morning- so my review is strictly on the room/sleeping experience. Our room was on the 3rd floor in the rectangle block of rooms next to the main building- so other rooms may be better but ours was pretty horrendous. Pros: 1. The location of the hotel... More
