Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 16, 2010

Stayed for 5 nights at this hotel in early July.
Had a king room in main building. Upon arrival, I was not impressed with the ''fully renovated'' room...musty smell, old shower head, and an in room-safe that wasn't bolted to the ground! When I told the front desk about this, they sent maintenance over right away to screw in the safe and got us a brand new shower head!!! So although the room was so-so in my opinion (iI must add that this is the most expensive hotel I've ever stayed in), the service was top-notch. Everyone was sooo friendly and kind. They always opened the door for their guests and accomodated us with every single request. I cannot remember having ever received such gracious service.
Also, the grounds of the hotel are beautiful (great lobby, front porch!) Location is excellent. There is also a heated outdoor pool, ample parking space, free internet at the lobby, room service and turndown service.
Overall, from the looks of it, this is probably your best best on the island. Would definitely stay here again!

Spent three nights at the Harbor View, the service and facilities were excellent. We were particularly impressed by the help at the concierge desk, who has us set up with dinner reservations, tickets to a show and a harbor tour in under ten minutes. Everyone we encountered was pleasant and helpful, would certainly stay again.

This was a great hotel - far exceeded our expectations. The staff (every single one of them) was helpful - everyone always asked us if there was anything they could do for us when we walked by. The online photos of the hotel don't do it justice - it's beautiful and very well cared for - high end, but not so high end we didn't feel comfortable. The location is perfect - walking distance (even with little kids) to the main town, and right across the street from the beach and marina. I would go back with family or with just my spouse. The grounds are spacious and the view are unbelievable - the best on the Vineyard, no doubt!

You can believe the photos. Great hotel, great location. The beds were very comfortable. The food at the hotel restaurant was quite delicious. Within walking distance of shopping, restaurants and sightseeing. Service was what I expected. The staff was willing to assist and always ended with - Is there anything else, I can do? I will recommend and would stay there again if hotel maintain their standard..

Each year for many years my husband and I stay here. We are groupies to the Vineyard at the end of summer. The experience is of days gone by that we have not been able to find anywhere else. Our hearts are here. We are both Southerners but the charm of the Vineyard keeps us coming back. Many of our friends here try to get us to rent a property when we come but we just love the location and charm of this Inn. We get on our bikes and ride into Edgartown or take a picnic basket and jump on the bus for Oak Bluff to walk amoung the fairytale cottages. The Harbor View Inn is ideally located at the tip of Edgartown. Close enough to walk into town or take the ferry over to "Chappy". Although the price for the Inn is often daunting ($600-$1200) per night. It is the charm you buy. We usually stay in the cottages at the Inn. They are smartly decorated in Vineyard chic. Some of the rooms are a bit worn and maintenance could be better but they are very clean. The food is excellent but there are so many great places to dine in town, so they have a great rivalry with that. They have nice staffing that are efficient. The air is of prosperity, but the servive is not at the level of the price. The pool could be prettier, but to be honest it is often too chilly there to swim. One day we might rent a home here but for this year again it is the Harbor View !

My wife and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary at the Harbor View Hotel and Resort. The location could not be better on Water Street. It was a 4 to 5 minute stroll down Water Street to the center of Edgartown. Water Street is spotless and on both sides of the street are immaculate former “Captain Homes”. These homes are now 15 to 20 room mansions in pristine condition. At night the street is well lit to make strolling back from Edgartown delightful.

Our room was a mini suite with internet service and a flat screen TV. The staff was extremely friendly from the bell hop to the concierge. The Hotel is located opposite the Edgartown lighthouse. Afternoons can be passed by sitting on the front porch, in either an Adirondack chair or rocking chair, sipping a Gin and Tonic, reading a book while watching the yachts come into Edgartown Harbor.

Not be overlooked is the excellent dining room. The food was excellent, the service superb and the price reasonable – by New York City standards.

All in all we would highly recommend the Harbor View Hotel.
