“Wonderful Place On The Docks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

This Inn has a great location right next to the docks and downtown Edgartown. Our room was spotlessly clean, quiet and comfortable. The lobby has coffee and tea in the morning. I was nervous since we reserved a garden room and the photo on line was of the outside but it is the same as the king size bedroom photo on line. The other major positive not mentioned on the website is yes there is air conditioning and the site should consider adding that data to the room descriptions.

A few details from our stay. The Wifi and cell service (Verizon) were both spotty (sometimes non-existent) in our room and when available it was not very powerful. You will just have to relax with friends or family while here. :-)

I spend four nights at the Harborside Inn in Edgartown at the end July 2012. The staff at the end were all very nice and attentive. The Inn is well located in downtown Edgartown close to shops, restaurants and the harbor. The room was very basic, but clean. The price was very expensive.

My husband and I spend a weekend at Harborside Inn this past August. Since we did not have a car the location of the hotel is great as you can walk to restaurants and shops and the bus stop (if you need to get to another part of the island). The property is very nice, with beautiful flowers in the courtyard and a very nice pool with harbor views. There is also a nice common area by the reception desk that overlooks the harbor and is a nice place to read. These features of the hotel make up for the small rooms (we had a standard room) that are decent for a couple, but would be tight for a family. We found the rooms to be simple and clean overall. Overall, we had a pleasant stay and look forward to coming back!

I love this place due to service and location, however rooms need to be updated and it is a little pricey! The grounds are beautiful and your right in the center of everything. The staff goes above and beyond.

We stayed at the Harborside Inn in Edgartown, MA. for two nights. This was our first trip to Martha's Vineyard and I chose this hotel using Trip Advisor for reviews. We were not disappointed as this turned out to be great place to stay with a with a nice, homey room and a great view of the harbor. Added bonus was a pool, which given the sweltering weather that week, was much appreciated.

Room Tip: Room with a view not necessary to enjoy Martha's Vineyard but was lovely and very relaxing to si...

My friend and I had a girls get-away and stayed at the Harborside Inn - it was simply perfect. The location was ideal, steps from everything! The service was fantastic and the views were to die for. It was so much fun, we booked another trip in 2 weeks!

At the last minute we decided to stay another night on the Vineyard. This was the only place in the area that had a room available. The price is what it is, gotta remember where you're at. Extremely convenient, step out the front door to walk to all of the restaurants and shops in the area. Room was of a generous size, clean, large balcony. Parking is free but the drawback is that the lot is 3 blocks is the opposite direction of everything else.
