“Edgartown”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

I had never been to Edgartown or Martha's Vineyard se for gago I tried to find a hotel that would fit my needs and comfort level. Vineyard Square was a hotel right where I wanted to be... I made a reservation months in advance of my arrival. This hotel is not pet friendly except for 2 rooms. I arrived and had several heavy bags and sailing gear. My kids sailed in a regatta there for 3 days! I found the hotel very dated! The bed and ac were great. There is no bellman to help with luggage. Parking is 2 blocks away... so leave your luggage curbside with someone and go park your car.
The restaurant attached to the hotel is not a part of the hotel. The restaurant was nice with a nice wine selection and good food. Don't order the NY strip! Mine came out thin, small and dried out. We did go a second night and everything else was good.
I would consider a different hotel in the future.

Room Tip: Cant help here. I only saw my room. Carpet and room very aged.

We are sorry our newly renovated rooms (in 2011) did not appeal to you, but we are glad you enjoyed our comfy beds and new air conditioning. We know you were not pleased that we would not allow your dog in our regular rooms. However, our website clearly shows that we have 2 pet-friendly suites and those were not the room you booked -- and they were occupied by other pet owners. We hope your dog enjoyed the local pet treats we gave you!

This hotel is perfect from check-in to check-out and its right in the middle of everything in Edgartown. Room was spacious and kept clean with comfortable beds and pillows. Breakfast was ample with very good selections. Hotel personnel were courteous, helpful and well-informed. Upon check-out, you may leave your luggage at the concierge if you need to go someplace else. Everyone in my family enjoyed their stay!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! The hotel was in a great location. There was a front porch (by a great restaurant) and a balcony on the top floor where you could enjoy people watching (porch) and a nice few of the water (balcony). The staff was attentive, friendly, and helpful. The hotel had a few beach cruiser bikes that you could sign out. They weren't the best bikes, but it saved us from having to rent bikes for the day. The breakfast was typical (bread, pastries, muffins, cereal, and some fruit). But, there was also Greek yogurt, which we are big fans of. The room was on the smaller side, but it was bright and clean. We will stay here again!

Thank you for your pleasant review and for visiting us in downtown Edgartown. We are glad you enjoyed our crisp, clean rooms and great central location. It also sounds like you made the most of both our 4th floor balcony and our expansive porch overlooking The Square! Please do visit us again the next time your travels bring you to the island.

We soo enjoyed our 5 day MV vacation and staying at this hotel was definitely the reason. The Hotel Staff was very friendly and ensured all of our questions were answered. The rooms were very clean, neat and modern and the beds were very comfy. We stayed in a standard room that came with 2 full size beds. I loved the bathroom as it was very roomy. The room also had a small refrigerator so we were able to go to the market and buy basic milk, water, juice, fruit and snacks for afternoon or late night munchies. :) The Breakfast in the morning was perfect. Their homemade granola was DELISH!!! Everything was within walking distance to the hotel, restaurants, shops, and the local beach. We decided to take my 5 year old daughter to movies one afternoon but when we got to the theater it was sold out :( Needless to say, my daughter was very sad when she got back to hotel but thanks to the Hotel Staff - Wes, he cheered her up by setting up a DVD player in the room with a movie of her choice and snacks so they had their own private movie viewing for the afternoon. My daughter and I also looked forward to 4:00 tea & cookies everyday and she never forgot to remind us when it was close to 4:00. We definitely would go again - this was the perfect vacation on the Vineyard!!! Looking forward to coming again during our summer vacation again next year.

This hotel has a long history and was recently renovated. The rooms are small, however, our room faced the water and the view was great. Not all rooms have water views. There was a small gas fireplace and shutters on the windows. the attached restaurant was good. Sound quality could be much better as we could hear lots of noise in the hall way. Location in Edgartown was perfect and parking a short distance away. Staff helpful.

Room Tip: Get an ocean view and room on upper floors

We appreciate your review and are glad you enjoyed our wonderful location, nearby parking, and helpful staff, and that you found our renovation appealing. We are very affordable for our heart of town location, and as you mentioned, our building is historic (we celebrated our 100-year anniversary in 2011). We've taken measures to control noise the best we can, but in an older facility during the height of summer, at times there is lots of happy vacationer chatter. We hope to have you return so we can impress you more!

The good - perfect location right in the heart of Edgartown. Conveniently located near all the restaurants and shops you would be interested in. Rooms were clean. They keep plenty of beach towels and chairs for you so you don't have to lug extra stuff to the island.

Room for improvement - the front desk staff was polite however not very helpful with recommendations. You really need to ask a lot of follow up questions to pull out the information you were interested in.

The bad you just have to live with - the rooms are REALLY tiny. We stayed in a standard room and I can't imagine what the cozy room looks like! Also - no elevator so if your room is on the 4th floor like ours, you'll certainly get your exercise as you come and go.

The public "veranda" is super tiny - you are better off in a rocking chair on the porch.

The location trumps any negatives and I would stay here again because of it. Knowing the vineyard a little better after our stay, I would not want to stay in Oaks Bluff or Vineyard Haven. Edgartown is more convenient to the good beaches.

Enjoy! We had a great time.

Room Tip: The standard room is small enough! Avoid their 'cozy room' and I would ask for a lower floo...
