Beautiful place with very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms in main house were amazing. Very clean and ideally situated in a quiet, peaceful corner of the island. Walking distance to buses. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Great position with classic views and convenient. We were only staying for one night so booked one of the cheaper rooms which was fine. Route to the room was grubby and a bit scruffy with a damp smell on entering the building where some of the cheaper rooms are situated . As we were staying off season we deliberately chose...

We stayed off season in the back building, so no views. However, we dined in their restaurant with lovely views. I liked the location for walking to dinner, Chappy Ferry and shopping. It was also good for running and taking photos. Our room was very nice and I enjoyed the balcony. I especially liked the linens and towels. Our only...

Just spent two nights in this beautiful old hotel in a beautiful part of the US. We arrived & there was a hiccup with booking as we'd been transferred from another hotel we'd booked at due to renovations. The hotel staff were very apologetic, upgraded us to water view room & included breakfast. Justin & Kelly were delightful to deal...

We stayed at the Harbor View Hotel for two nights at the beginning of April. Whilst still off season the location and hotel was wonderful. They had a comedy night on Saturday which was good fun. Martha's Vineyard is very pretty. Worth hiring a car so you can get around.

Great time attending the annual Chili Festival in Oak Bluffs. So glad we stayed the weekend at the Harbor View. Always a pleasant visit. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The rooms could be updated a little but still adequate.

We stayed in the main building while visiting for the annual chili festival. Our room (203) was adequate, it wasn't anything very special. We paid an off season rate, so I certainly can't complain. I did check in to see the in season rate, and can honestly say that I would be disappointed, had I paid those rate$! The staff...

Martha's vinyard is pretty much devoid of tourists in march which I'm sure isn't a shock to anyone. So I can't help but wonder why my partner and I were not treated a little better. Any custom im sure should be appreciated but not here. The staff were surly and uninterested, the room was far from the main building in...

This was our second time visiting the Harbor View but the first time staying in the main building. The room we got was very comfortable with nice views from the third floor (even though we did not reserve a waterfront view room!) and the hotel was beautiful, comfortable, historic and relaxing. The room was large, clean, and well decorated, although...
