“Harborside Inn time share trade in”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

What a great spot. Hotel staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. Location was fabulous with lots of restaurants within walking distance and staff recommendations were great.
The room was spotless and had a great view of harbor even though it was a studio we dis well with the free coffee available downstairs every morning.
Common kitchen gave us an opportunity to talk with friendly owners and traders like us. We got some great recommendations for future travel from them. Everyone was outgoing and so nice.
No Elevator would be a problem and off site parking without valet service might limit others but we enjoyed the twice a day walk up and down the short flights of stairs and the 1/4 mile to the sufficient lot for cars. Would do this again.

Room Tip: trade early and if you are fit take the 2nd floor accommodation.

We stayed at the Harborside Inn last month and were pleasantly surprised. Our room was recently renovated and reminded us of a New England bed and breakfast. We had a room overlooking the harbor and were able to see the sunrise. The online pictures don't do the resort justice. The staff was very accommodating and helpful; and housekeeping did a great job supplying and cleaning our room. It is the best location on the island - close to shops, the bike path and walking distance to many beaches. We're looking forward to going back next year!

We visited The Harborside and Martha's Vineyard immediately after the off season began. It was quiet and the weather was still great, but it seemed as if many of the resturants and shops just couldn't wait to close. We were disappointed by some of the closings but on the other hand got some wonderful deals because things were closing. The Harborside has a community kitchen and we really enjoyed being part of the commaraderie of making and eating our dinner among the other guests. We enjoyed a couple of nice bike rides while there on some of the many bike paths on the island. Although staff said the pool was still open it did not see to be. The whole island was very clean and very polite.

Several couples chose to stay at the Harborside Inn in a recent trip. The hotel is comprised of several of the historic buildings and houses that for the most part have an outside access to the views of the pool, beautiful harbor and small marina. Our room was very clean and accommodating except for the bathroom. The bathroom was not more than a small closet with a nice shower and the other essentials. To open and close the door was frustrating and a challenge for space. No place to set your bathroom belongings. Drawback for this hotel is there are no elevators so be prepared to encounter a lot of stairs to reach your room unless you are on the ground floor and even then you have 3 or 4 steps to reach your room.

Room Tip: When requesting a harbor view room, confirm you have a direct view. Our room was supposedly harbor...

The hotel is located right at the heart of Edgartown overlooking the harbor. The rooms are clean. You expect to pay a premium for location but for the quality and service this was crazy. The decor looks like a 1970s Holiday Inn. The bed and pillow level of quality and comfort wouldn't have passed at a Red Roof Inn or La Quintas, I am serious. The staff was distracted and unhelpful. When we asked where to eat they handed us a Chamber of Commerce pamphlet and went back to chatting about their romantic relationships. A small upgrade in basic bed/furniture quality and a slight interest in the customer would make a huge difference (the place was almost deserted so they weren't overwhelmed). Just a little care and attention would make the value and experience a positive rather than a feeling like you have been scammed.

Location was really wonderful, right in the thick of Edgartown, so you can walk every where and also have easy access to the bike trail to Oak Bluffs. Rooms are certainly dated and in need of a renovation for the prices they charge. But in all, it was fine for a last minute booking. Kids love the pool, which was the ultimate draw.

I have been staying at the Harborside for over 25 years. The location on the harbor is perfect. It is also on the quiet side of Water Street (South). The rooms are always clean and well appointed. This place is very quiet with the exception of the noise coming from the Atlantic Restaurant next door. The pool and courtyard we clean and well-kept at all times. The courtyard offers outdoor grilling. For the best room, choose one with a deck or patio facing the harbor. Suite 510 has a king sized bed, fridge, and a fabulous patio right on the harbor's edge. The staff here is always friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable.

Room Tip: Try to get either room 501 or 509 for the best views.
