“5 star location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

While our weekend in Martha's Vineyard was truly lovely and relaxing it was this hotel that made it so great. The staff is friendly and helpful (complementary bikes or beach chairs/towels anyone!!!). I am already missing my morning coffee & rocking chair on their charming front porch.The rooms are clean and the bathroom larger than expected with nice toiletries. And, let's not forget the location in the heart of Edgartown can't be beat.

We have been visiting MV for 20 years and this hotel is our favorite by a mile! The staff was exceptional! Everyone had helpful tips and advice, breakfast until 9:30 was perfect for our late sleepers. Wes at the front desk was a miracle worker - whether we needed an emergency blackberry charger or to clean our carsick toddler's car seat, he was there to offer help. The Menemsha suite was a bit cozy but well done and had a gorgeous balcony on which we enjoyed cocktails, people watching and even dinner one night with our fussy 2 year old. We moved to the older part of the hotel for our last night and found that room to be equally charming. The only downside for us was the lack of a pool but with the beautiful beaches nearby we hardly missed it. We hope to visit this lovely retreat again next summer! Maybe with our pup if we can grab the doggy friendly suite!

We are honored to be your favorite Martha's Vineyard hotel "by a mile"! It was a pleasure meeting your needs and we are pleased that you enjoyed our great location and the lovely Menemsha suite. Cocktails on the balcony overlooking the harbor is a great way to spend a summer evening. Come back and enjoy that again next summer at The Square!

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was typical vineyard style with a nice hotel feel (different for us as we usually stay in B&B's). Though a hotel, it did have a personalized feel largely due to the staff being so helpful.
I echo others reviews about Joanne. Her bubbly personality is infectious, and is in no way overbearing or pushy. She goes out of her way to help and offers assistance and opinions in the way that a friend would. We were pleased with her willingness to go the extra mile.
The other staff were accommodating as well.

No complaints on the room. It was well appointed and extremely clean. Just the right size.
The hotel itself was quiet , especially for being in a hub to of area.

The 4th floor porch was incredible. We spent our first night reading out on the porch on the rockers. It was lovely.
The only downsides is that the porch closes early, around 9pm. We often enjoy sitting out on porches when we return from dinner or a night out, so it was a little disappointing. However I understand there are guest rooms on either side of the porch so late night guests on the porch could create noise complaints.

The only other aspect that surprised us is that the parking lot is a good block away. Not the end of the world but just be advised that the parking for this hotel isn't right out back! Due to the location, it would be impossible to do so, but just wanted other travelers aware. The lot is a private lot though and is in a residential area , so we weren't too concerned about leaving our vehicle there.

Overall a very enjoyable three night stay! It was very affordable and just what we expected.

Thank you Vineyard Square.

Room Tip: We stayed in a partial water view. It was definitely partial! Looking out the window from the bed, y...

Thank you for your detailed and positive review. We appreciate it when our guests help to explain the location of our parking. Although explained in many places on our website and in our reservations emails -- many folks do not see it! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay, the view from our 4th floor porch, and Joanne's bubbly personality. Please come visit us again!

This hotel was the perfect location for all the action in Edgartown. Being right in the heart of the town square it was easy to walk anywhere at anytime and check out all the surroundings of the little village and still it is also a few minutes walk to the nearest beach by the lighthouse. The continental breakfast was generous but chose to explore Dock St Cafe instead. Since we couldn't check into our room as early as we would've liked, they held our bags for us when we arrived as early as 10:30 am. The room was small but cozy and nice...after all our only option left (being 4th of July weekend & only 2 months notice) was the "cozy double" bedroom. I would definitely choose this accommodation again and was not disappointed we didn't get a charming little bed and breakfast instead:)

Room Tip: No pool but the beach is just near! Book this place around 4-6 months in advance if holidays are ne...

Thanks for your kind review and for your advice to others about booking early for holidays. We do tend to fill up. We are pleased you enjoyed our cozy rooms, which are compact but lovely, and our great downtown location in the heart of town. Please visit Vineyard Square again the next time you travel to Martha's Vineyard.

After a very long week at work, staying at the Vineyard Square Hotel & Suites was just what I needed. They provided us with free parking, offered to store our luggage before and after our stay (which we didn't need, but it was a great offer!), had WONDERFUL customer service, and so much more! The location is AMAZING. It is literally in the heart of Edgartown. You can look out your window to see which shops are open and how busy the streets are. We opted to take a 10 minute stroll to the Lighthouse Beach because it is less croweded, but even the walk through the neighborhood is nice! They have coffee and tea available all day, free continental breakfast, and cookies in the afternoon. My only regret is that we only spent 2 nights here. A weekend is way too short!

Room Tip: If you want a good view, get a suite with a balcony.

Me and my pup just returned from our second stay. We ADORE this property. It is charming, clean as a whip, cosy, welcoming, comfortable and is located in the very heart of Edgartown. Steps away from EVERYTHING! And the staff goes above and beyond. If it's raining? They'll hand you an umbrella. Going to the beach? They'll hand you beach towels. Brought your pooch? They'll offer up locations of the best dog parks. Need a napping blanket? Arrives within minutes. I'm already counting down the days to my week-long visit in August!

Room Tip: Coastal Suite if you're a dog owner. Cosy, apartment feel

Everything about this place was easy -- the location, the parking and the check-in. Room were clean and comfortable (and air conditioned!) and the manager was very friendly and helpful. We loved sitting on the front porch in the rocking chairs at the end of the night and people-watching, and we loved that there are several fantastic restaurants within walking distance. Continental breakfast in the lovely courtyard was a bonus, too. Would certainly recommend to friends as a top-choice for a Vineyard getaway.

One doesn't usually like being called "easy" -- but in this case we take it as a compliment! We are so pleased we could make the whole vacation experience easy for you -- that's what getaways are all about. Thank you for your lovely comments about our staff and service. Please plan another visit for people watching on the porch. Fall is a great time on the island.
