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

Can't beat the location! Gorgeous view and gorgeous hotel. Service doesn't live up to the property prices or esthetics. Beyond bad. Room service took multiple calls and when it did arrive, it was always wrong. You can't charge Four Seasons Prices and have Travelodge Service. It doesn't work that way. Darlene at the Concierge Desk is the rock star of... More

We spent three nights at the Harbor View in mid-September, and overall, we just loved this hotel. There were a few small details that prevent me from rating it 5 stars, but we really enjoyed our stay and would love to return. First, the positives. As so many others have said, the location could not possibly be more perfect. You're... More

The location and view are excellant. Having stated that, the overall rating of this property is somewhere between average and good. We spent 3 nights in mid September. The weather was perfect so the short walk to "town" was easy and scenic. Upon arrival and inspection of our room, we found a small area in the bathroom that was unclean... More

We just recently stayed for one night at the Harbor View Hotel in Edgartown. We arrived dead on 4pm, and our room was ready, no problem at all with check in like some other travellers mentioned. Yes, we booked via a booking website, so were fully prepared for the fact we would be billeted in a separate block, but it... More

This is one of those, where the setting is so lovely, accommodation comes second. Nevertheless, Harbour view is nice. Not being unkind when I say service is enthusiastic, but sub professional. Loved it all.

The property fits snugly into a corner overlooking the lighthouse and Chappaquiddick, a nice stroll to "town." Wonderful wrap-around porch. The main inn is far more costly than the hotel rooms in the attached building in the back so I presume they're very nice. The room was substandard, especially in comparison: small, outdated, with a closet door that stuck. They... More

The best MV has to offer. Loved the quaintness of a fairly large property. A great history worth reading about ...... location is perfect by being at the end of Edgartown and yet walking distance to most everything you would want to peruse. Love the little beach across the water from Chappy and the Edgartown Lighthouse. Really like Henry's Bar... More

Since 1891, this historic hotel retains all the charm of an old seaside hotel while becoming a modern resort-type hotel. The accommodations types are plentiful. Even a standard room is very spacious and well appointed. The hotel staff is attentive. You can sit on the front porch in a rocker and see the classic white Edgartown Lighthouse; the view is... More

My husband and I stayed at the Harbor View Hotel on a Friday night in September. We had a king room in the main building overlooking the swimming pool. The room was pleasant though the lack of screens made it impossible to open the windows without inviting in the mosquitos. We were forced to use the AC even though it... More
