We stayed here during the recent Beach Road Music Festival. The Harborside expertly straddles the desire for a tranquil resort, incredible views and a central location. It sits in the center of Edgartown within a quick walk to some of MV's best restaurants, shops and bars, while remaining quiet and private. Our group had 26 rooms for a 3 night stay. The rooms were quiet, comfortable, spotless, and comfortably functional. Most rooms have breathtaking views of the harbor or the the expertly manicured grounds. The sun filled pool and large and well-equipped grill area were a highlight for our group. One night we all sat around the fire pits for sunset. The friendly staff and management team accommodated all of our last minute requests, helped with dinner plans and in general were great resources for our successful stay. This property truly embodied everything we hoped for and we cannot wait to come back!

Superb! Excellent front desk and staff always with a cheerful greeting ready to accommodate. We were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded from a lovely poolside room to a king bed ocean view when they heard we were celebrating our anniversary. Clean, friendly, beautiful gardens, heated pool as well as activities like outdoor movie night, musical entertainment on the porch and yoga in the morning. Cookies and milk at night and tea/coffee service in the mornings add that extra attention to detail that does not go unnoticed. Located in the hub of Edgartown this is a quiet gem which we are certain to return to.

We have stayed in MV several times but this was our first time at this hotel. We were blown away by the property, staff, views, etc. We brought our two little ones for 5 nights. They absolutely loved the pool. Everything was clean, the grounds immaculate. The ONLY negative was the off-site parking is a little bit of a walk from the hotel. Without children or tons of luggage this is completely fine. We managed well and will definitely be returning.

The Harborside Inn is not only remarkable; it is the gold standard of vacation resorts. It is located right in the storybook village of Edgartown where you can walk to absolutely everything, but there is a feeling of privacy where it is situated on direct waterfront overlooking Edgartown Harbor and Chappaquiddick with beautiful well-kept gardens and lawn with a lovely pool. The management is par excellence with the friendliest, most accommodating staff that goes above and beyond and a general manager who is always on the grounds ready to cater to any whim. In recent years, it has become even more family friendly with events for kids such as face-painting; trips to the nearby fudge-making business; the making of s’mores by the fire pits; and organized games with snacks on the lawn. They can bring toys in the pool and throw balls everywhere. Among the many activities for adults are early morning yoga and musicians on the grounds and outdoor films on a huge screen in the evening. The buildings are a conglomeration of mostly charming old captains’ houses built in the early 1800s that are modernized and refurbished and include refrigerators, flat screen tv’s and powerful air conditioners in every room along with breath-taking water views. I know that I sound like I’m narrating a paid commercial, but it’s genuinely true -- The Harborside Inn hits every note you’d want; is state of the art and at the top of its game; and provides the quintessential Martha’s Vineyard experience.

There's lots to like about the Harborside Inn - the location is IDEAL, the pool is great (although there was an issue with it one day), and the grounds/view are beautiful. The front desk staff is also really nice. It's really a warm, serene, and familial vibe there. However - on this stay, which was my first, there were just too many issues to overlook. The first and most troublesome is that the wifi does not work - AT ALL. Despite management blaming it on a need to reset devices, forget and re-login to devices, an area-wide outage (not true as the hotel down the block had wifi that was fine), etc. the wifi at the Harborside Inn is atrocious and unusable. While I understand that outages happen, I found it disappointing that nothing material was done to help me / make a mends for the trouble. Don't come here expecting to rely on the wifi as I did. The other issues we faced revolved our room and include - ants everywhere, always - incredibly damp most of the time - being left with no toilet paper after cleaning service Overall, there's lots to like about the Harborside Inn, but it ultimately did not live up to my hopes and expectations.

We've been to the Harborside Inn many times. The last time in 2018. It has always been great. This time it was better. The rooms have been upgraded and the grounds are more beautiful that I remember. Most of all, the staff, always a highlight of the hotel, they are attentive and service oriented. Our stay was wonderful!!

The renovated rooms are gorgeous and clean but more importantly the General Manager and the staff are unbelievably accommodating! Marjorie at the front desk is one of the kindest people that I have ever met. Without going into great details a member of my party was in a bicycle accident while we were staying at the property. The management and staff could not have been more accommodating or nicer to us. I can't wait to return later this summer to the property for my third stay!

As a couple we have been visiting MV for 5+ years. Typically we stay in Falmouth and do a day trip on the island. This was our first time staying and we couldn’t be more thrilled with our experience. Not only was the location perfect but the hotel and staff were exceptional. They surprised the bride and myself with complementary champagne after asking if there was any special occasion being celebrated. That was delivered in our room between check in and parking the vehicle. James and the rest of the staff were extremely helpful. Highly recommend and will be back!

My two dear friends and I chose the Harborside Inn for our Girls Getaway, which we planned a year ago. This Inn is centrally located in town, everything in walking distance, has a charming atmosphere, a pool and renovated rooms. A perfect Martha’s Vineyard destination. We were greeted upon our arrival by the lovely Marjorie, who checked us in on Wednesday evening. My friends and I realized the true kindness and personal touch of the Harborside Inn staff when I suffered a pretty severe biking accident the second day. Upon my return from the ER that night, Marjorie again came to our rescue to help with all of our needs, along with the night manager. And Gregory, the General Manager, offered additional support the next day. The staff went out of their way to voice concern and offer help - and it made all of the difference for me. Sincere thanks to the Harborside Inn Staff. Highly Recommend this “family away from home” feeling Inn.
