Edgartown Commons
Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

I've stayed in Edgartown before but at a much more expensive resort. This trip we were 5 family members and we found a great "apartment"-room at a great price here. It was in the main building on the bottom floor just off of the reception. This may sound scary but we made no notice of people coming and going to the reception desk.
There were 2 bedrooms with quaint but simple New England decor. A fully equipped kitcken and a large living room with dining room table. It was clean with a nice homey feel and the only thing I can complain about are the livingroom drapes. One side wouldn't open and some of the hooks were missing. With the rest of the apartment in such good condition, this should be the simplest thing to fix before guests arrive.
You can tell that this building is a large old home and along with it comes sounds from upstairs.
Nothing against Edgartown Commons but guests staying on the second floor of an old building should be considerate enough to make sure that their small children don't run and jump indoors. You can hear every 3-year-old "stomp" from
the room above.
Still, I loved this place and will definately try to stay here again!

The new management is not friendly and welcoming like Rick. New policies, everyone used to have same room year after year but new guy says NO. The location is great but will not stay due to new management

We stayed at the Edgartown Commons for two nights. It's in a quiet location close to the main street of Edgartown. Our beds were comfortable and we loved having all of that space. Our suite was nicely decorated and very clean. We would definitely come back.

Very disappointed in a formerly great vacation spot. New management is disorganized, rude and resent any suggestions for change. Rooms not well cleaned, little supervision of cleaning staff. Pool not well maintained, water cloudy most of the time. Nice to have a functional kitchen but cookware and dishes are very outdated-- 1980s?

Most recent stay at EC was June 2013. I won't mention which unit we stay in because we really enjoy our two week vacation in this unit year after year and don't want anyone else to book it for next year.

But, have to say, after always returning to this unit and Edgartown Commons, we, obviously, are pleased with the accommodations

No, EC isn't A/C. Our unit does have a window A/C in the closet and if it gets rainy/humid/hot, we put the unit in the window. No complaints from management.

What really bothers me after reading all the above reviews from past dates is some have negative comments about the cleaning staff. Hey?????????What's with you guys?

If something isn't just perfect when you arrive - if you go to the front desk and mention your dissatisfaction,, it definitely will be taken care of. The cleaning staff of 4-5 Jamaican women, such caring and friendly women, will care for you according to your wishes . They strive to help you and have always been friendly and helpful to us. Some of them have remained friends beyond the high season.

This is a family condo vacation spot, privately owned by individual owners for each unit. Every unit is different, decorated with the owner's wishes but all share common kitchen requirements such as kitchen tools/pans to cook with, etc. Some are really pretty and some aren't, needing updating.

Ours has been updated every other year and we are happy. We are definitely happy with the cleaning staff as they have been wonderful to us. Just ask and you will get. You do have to take your kitchen garbage bag to the dumpster when it's full and if you stay over 3 days, you get your bed linens changed but if overnight or for two days, nope, you won't be seeing the cleaning staff unless you need something.

We enjoy Edgartown Commons because it's in the heart of town and if you don't expect world class accommodations, but just clean accommodations, friendly staff, you will be happy here. If you want 4* accommodations, choose the HarborView! It's gorgeous and very expensive!

Stayed here in August 2013 in a two bed suite in the main house. The location was fantastic, we were able to walk everywhere, accommodation was very clean and spacious. The staff were very friendly and obliging. Only problem was not being able to stay longer!

In August 2013 I stayed for one week at Edgartown Commons. It was my second week-long stay in two years . I stayed with a friend in a one-bedroom corner unit on the first floor. It was clean, airy and roomy, with a well-equipped kitchen and a lovely dining area.

If you are really into cooking, you may want to bring your own knives, an omelette pan, microplane, etc. I learned this in 2012- so I have a travel/cooking go-kit for when I travel to MVY . You might also bring your own had mixer if you plan to bake. This equipment takes up very little room in your car. You save tons of money by not having to eat out every night. I usually eat out 3-4 nights and eat in the other nights. I eat breakfast in except when I want to try out a restaurant like Biscuits in Oak Bluffs which actually serves breakfast until 3 PM and is excellent.

The furnishings were modern, yet in keeping with the MVY atmosphere. It was close to everything- ferries, shopping, tourist attractions, restaurants and a five-minute drive to the local stop and shop on Main Street and the Edgartown Fish Market-so that you an purchase perishable items.

It is an excellent value for the money. The staff is wonderful. If you are a driver, it is also close to the main roads and is accessible to everything. I've already reserved my unit for summer 2014.

Room Tip: Get a unit on the first floor on Pease Point Way. They are cooler and there is parking right in fron...
