“Beautiful location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014 via mobile

Pristine hotel set off by itself in front of Edgartown lighthouse. 10 minute walk to public transportation. Hotel restaurant, Henry's, is a good place to eat and relax after walking thru the nearby towns. Head out across island to Menemsha and Gay Head...again VTA bus will take you there. Corner room at hotel (#202) has a wonderful view of the lighthouse. Bed was comfortable. Small tub.

Stayed May 2014, traveled as a couple

Room was nice. Clean. Comfy. Within walking distance to the center of town. My only complaint was the ironing board. It stained one of my shirts. Must have been ruined by the last tenents. Staff was great!

Just stayed at Harbor View Hotel and had a great time. Captain's Cottages were very comfortable. The staff were very accommodating and when they discovered it was our 40th wedding anniversary sent us a little complimentary gift. Nice touch! We would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a place to stay on the island.

We have been traveling to MV for years and have always stayed at the Harbor View. Why? Simple, the hotel is elegant, but more importantly it's the staff. On our most recent stay we were once again greeted by Darlene, who returned from a season off. We were so happy to see her as she literally ran out of the hotel to say hello. You cannot get better service than that, anywhere. Imagine a hotel where everyone remembers you, even the valet remembered us and made a point to say hello. So, although the hotel is beautiful and a Edgartown is just picturesque, it's staff like Darlene who has us coming back year after year. Chris, Laverne and Courtney.

Room Tip: Take a room in the main hotel, it's pricier but the view is amazing.

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary at this hotel. The staff was wonderful. The concierge Darlene helped me plan a surprise dinner with a violinist, flowers etc. and was terrific. The hotel is well maintained and very comfortable with a great view of the lighthouse and Edgartown harbor. A perfect venue. Looking forward to our return.

The location of this hotel is perfect for walking around Edgartown and the view is beautiful. The front porch is peaceful with rocking chairs it is a great place to read. You can walk across street and walk to the beach and lighthouse area. It is a harbor type beach but very pretty. We went off season and it was very quiet, we booked a standard room and it had a very nice balcony on third floor. The room was unremarkable and so was the bath but it was very clean. I don't know if i would pay the In season rates as they are quite high. Lobby area was nice and the breakfast was very good. the cleaning staff were very sweet and hard working. The complementary coffee was great and much appreciated. We had a great time at this resort and would like to return. The only thing that bothered me is that the check in time was 4:00 and we did arrive early and even though resort was very quiet they would not accommodate an early check in, we had to wait until 3:30. I feel that if the room is ready why not allow check in we probably would have stayed there and had lunch or drinks if we had checked in but instead had to leave and go elsewhere. Most hotels we stay in accommodate an early check in if possible. Check out is at 12:00 Which is nice.

I found this hotel on Trip advisor, this was my first time on MV but my mom had been there before. The price for 2 double beds was $97.00 dollars( easter weekend) so we booked two nights. I knew they had water view rooms and I knew we would not be staying in any of those rooms and that was fine. The total for two nights was $212, you can not beat that. The view from the front of the hotel with the rocking chairs overlooking Edgartown lighthouse and Chappaquiddick was breathtaking. Edgartown is a beautiful, small town with shopping and plenty of places to eat. I hope I have the chance to stay here again.

Room Tip: They do not have elevators so the first floor is best if you have trouble with the stairs. Ask about...
