“Superb deck and original building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

Picturesque property with a fantastic view out the front of the lighthouse. We stayed in the Mayhew Building which was adequate but less special. Pool was popular but unfortunately lacked a hot tub. Helpful concierge who arranged to have a bike delivered to the hotel. A very convenient place to stay in Edgartown.

Room Tip: Rent a bike.

Great location! Friendly staff, great job on flower beds. Expensive but worth it. Mix of time share clients and regular guests. Very social group. Soft beds, modern showers. I will stay again. First floor is ideal for families with small kids

By far the best place to stay in Edgartown. Property is located on Edgartown Harbor. All buildings have been redecorated and all new bedding in every room, bathrooms all new, very comfy and super clean. Love this place.

Room Tip: Harbor view is just beautiful. Takes my breath away each time I stay there. But all rooms are clea...

This is my third time staying at the Harborside. I'm so impressed with the updates they have done to the guest rooms. Don't let the dated decor on their website pictures fool you. The rooms and bathrooms are updated beautifully. I was traveling with two small children and the only thing to note is our bathroom did not have a bathtub. The Harborside is in the best location. Walk right outside to Main Street and tons of shops and restaurants. We stayed in the Chappaquiddick House. I would recommend reserving a room on the water side, not the street size. I've heard the street can be very noisy and you can't beat the view of the harbor. I didn't encounter any of the issues with owners that other reviewers have mentioned. Just know going in that as a hotel guest you will not have access to the BBQ grills or kitchen facilities. I can't wait to go back!

Ah...Edgartown...and The Harborside Inn is better than ever. All 90 rooms have been renovated with heat exchanger air conditioning so you can adjust the temperature. New baths, though small, have granite countertops and tile showers with a built-in seat and quality showerhead and shower wand. New carpet, furniture, new mattresses etc. No smoking and no pets make it safe and pleasant for us guests.

The inn's lovely large grassy floral courtyard with pool and waterfront docks is beautiful in itself. Even more, it's adjacent to Edgartown's shopping, eating out, boating. Right off Main Street on South Water Street the inn includes former whaling captain's homes with bedroom units. Stroll Water Street and you'll see gorgeous homes from the 1800's edged by white picket fences laden with roses, white homes with black shutters, weathered shakes framed in white and window boxes filled with colorful flowers. Picture charming, beautifully landscaped lawns donning orange day lilies against a backdrop of boats lazily moored in Edgartown Harbor. To me, Edgartown is the place to be on Martha's Vineyard and the Harborside Inn is the place to stay.

Room Tip: Choose water, street or garden view and ask about the size of the room.

A timeshare property owned and managed by the owners, the Harborside is a fun and unique place. The setting is fabulous, right on the harbor(boat slips possible), and in the middle of Edgartown. The rooms are small, recently renovated, with little but modern bathrooms, but the property is spacious for being in the middle of town. There is a building with multiple kitchens for you to prepare your own meals.There is a dining room with a water view. There is a pool area with a heated pool, a grilling area with outside seating. I have stayed here twice and enjoyed it both times.

Room Tip: There are motel-like rooms, and rooms in the old sea captain houses. Some have nice views.

We exchanged a 2-bedroom Marriott condo for a room with a very small bathroom. The worst part was it faced a narrow street which had a Pub short steps from our bedroom window. Smokers gathered outside the entrance and each evening the music seemed to get louder.
If you stay in Captains Abel or Prada rooms, facing the street, just know it will be noisy.

The room was recently renovated and the furnishings were fine but the room is small and the bathroom, while it had a nice shower, was hard to move around in. We did a lot of improvising. They have a large common area with tables and lots of kitchen facilities e.g. many refrigerators, stoves, all utensils, etc. You can certainly cook a large meal for a family or just keep breakfast foods, which is what we did. This was a new concept for us but I liked it.

We love Martha's Vineyard and will go back again but stay at one of the many lovely B&B's. As it was we left a day early. BTW, we asked about exchanging our room for another unit - as there were other units available - but were told it would be an extra $280/night.

Room Tip: Unless you are not bothered by noise, don't take a room facing the street. The rating of "...
