We are Bostonians, and generally make it to The Vineyard at least once a year. Sometimes for a week in a vacation rental, sometimes staying with friends, sometimes in a hotel. My husband and I decided to make an escape for a couple of nights and booked a room at the Harbor View. Since it was Off-Season, we booked a... More

We stayed in one of the cottage suites. Absolutely beautiful and perfect. Rooms were large and spacious with comfortable bed and pillows. Large deck off the bedroom to sit outside in the evening and relax with a glass of wine. Even had an outdoor shower. Staff helped us with decisions on where to visit and eat and helped us with...

We spent the last weekend of March at the Harbor View to celebrate an 80th birthday with family and friends. The trip to the island was long and trying as we dealt with a lengthy drive, a rough ferry trip and generally bad weather. We appreciated The Director of Evening Services Donnie Ethier for helping us get squared away when... More

Not being much of a crowd person I took my first ever trip out to Martha's Vineyard in February of all times but it was a fantastic trip in spite of the cold and snow and was made all the more so by my stay at Edgartown's beautiful Harbor View Hotel. I am a sucker for historic hotels and if... More

Stayed at the Harbor View for 2 nights in March, 2014. Check in was very simple, and the staff there were upfront and accommodating when our room wasn't completely finished being cleaned yet. Staff at desk was willing to call us (only 10 minutes later) to let us know when it was ready. It was refreshing to see that all... More

Beautiful hotel to stay at, very relaxing but nicely furnished. It overlooks Edgartown Light House, and is a short walk to the center. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Can't wait to visit there again.

Harborview has many levels of room qualities. Rooms in the main building are very clean and pleasant. We were even upgrade during off season last year. When possible, we will always stay here or a homely Bed & Breakfast while on the island.

Harbor View Hotel in Edgartown is a welcome retreat with a staff that's courteous and attentive to making your stay as delightful as possible. Have been a guest in-season and off-season for many years. We always feel like we're coming home.

Stayed in the Mayhew building for a medical conference with the family. I have to say, either this back building is just neglected because they charge less, or this hotel is really overall very poor in maintaining basic service! Our toilet never flushed correctly, and we generally had to "hold it in" to use facilities outside the room...not pleasant! When... More

My boyfriend and I just returned from a delightful stay at the Harbor View Hotel. The hotel property is stunning and the staff are extremely friendly and professional. We originally booked a room in one of the outer buildings, but were upgraded to the main building when the staff decided to place a high school girls hockey team in that... More
