The staff were efficient, friendly and welcoming. The two double bed room we had was perfect. It had a refrigerator which helped with storing our goodies we bought during the day. People come from miles around to their cocktail hour in the lounge at night because of the view. Their New England Clam Chowder was better than the restaurants in the downtown area. I would recommend sitting in the rocking chairs on the front porch for awhile. Loved it!

Great location and a beautiful property. Chose an ocean view room if possible. The town of Edgartown is the nicest on the island. Take your car if possible, otherwise there is a very efficient bus service connecting all towns.

We had a wonderful time while staying at the Harbor View Hotel in Martha's Vineyard. The staff were extremely friendly and the hotel is just beautiful. It's an easy walk to the Edgartown Lighthouse and right across from the bay. We stayed in a 2 bedroom cottage and it was very spacious and relaxing.

We came to this hotel as my husband was attending a Harvard medical conference and extended it to a little couples getaway. The hotel has a grand sweeping verandah with lots of chairs from which you can stare at the ocean and the Edgartown lighthouse. The lighthouse has also become a memorial for the children from the island who have died. Each year families gather to remember and celebrate the lives of their children. This area of beach is also great for kite flying. Our room 302 in the main b... Read more

We stayed in a captains cottage - stunning, luxurious, squeaky clean, ultra comfortable bed, own laundry, quiet, beautiful grounds, 8 minute walk to shops & eateries. Across the road to beach & lighthouse. Delightfully helpful staff. Would stay here every year if I didn't live a 20 hour plane ride away!

We stayed at the Harbor View while we attended my nephew's wedding. We were part of about 10 rooms. The staff was very accommodating, the views beautiful & the rooms comfortable. Was a great headquarter for the wedding and an easy walk to Edgartown!

Our room was very nice. It was a good size with a balcony and a comfy big bed. The only negatives were the shower was not very powerful and the massive tree outside our room at the side of the hotel prevented us seeing hardly any view at all. The hotel was clean, the staff friendly and the breakfasts were great. The location was wonderful, looking out to Edgartown lighthouse.

My husband and I stayed here end of May with our 8 month old baby. The room was spacious and clean providing an area for her to crawl and play. The porch was a common destination with the rocking chairs and breath taking view of the harbor and lighthouse. The staff was wonderful and accommodating! The location of the hotel was prime for walking into town (just a few blocks). Only negatives breakfast wasn't included and was pricy- worth going into town to get breakfast vs eating at HVH and the ... Read more

We enjoyed every aspect of our stay at this charming/classy hotel but the people (staff) really made it special and an outstanding experience. We received excellent service from every staff person we encountered: housekeeping, through, creative, and intuitive. Our one bedroom gorgeous cottage (#95) felt brand new every time we returned to the room. The restaurant served tasty meals and Henry's Bar was a favorite hangout. We had a wonderful Sunday brunch that our guests marveled over. Staff all ... Read more

My wife and I stay at the Harbor View Hotel once every summer and we are never disappointed. The rooms are quaint and cozy. The service is excellent and the food at the bar/restaurant is great! The pool wasn't opened yet when we stayed but looked clean and refreshing (the temperature was very warm though!!) Maybe next year :)

The island is beautiful, relaxing and expensive. The rooms are spacious and light. The grounds are well maintained. Everyone is friendly and polite. But expectations are a little different here. The population goes from about 20,000 most of the year to about 250,000 in the summer. That includes many college age employees for the summer. So the details of service are not always perfect. There is a spa nearby but not in the hotel. Our room did not have a full mirror and the bathroom had only one ... Read more

Have been coming here for the past 20 years. Always a pleasure to stay - great hotel and staff. Close to beaches, town, and attractions. Bar and restaurant on site which offers a great breakfast. A bit pricey, but worth the expense.

We stayed 2 nights in the main house in the end of June. Check in is 4 pm but we arrived a bit after 11am as we came from the ferry in Oak Bluffs that arrived at 10:45. We had no expectation that our room would be ready, and it wasn't. But we did a "soft" check in and they took our bags for us. The lovely young lady at the front desk told us they would now prioritize cleaning our room. That was nice and again, not expected, as we were about 5 hours early. We went past the lovely cozy lobby area... Read more

We spent 4 days at this beautiful hotel from Thursday June 30-July 3rd for our anniversary. We took our 11 year old twin and we had a blast. The staffs were remarkably helpful and friendly. They were also very knowledgeable about activities we could do in around town. The pool was beautiful, warm and clean. The hotel ground was well manicured and had many hidden gardens/ and an array of flowers. Definitely will return. Lovely hotel.

We stayed here for our honeymoon. We got a room with a view and it was really nice. The room was also very spacious. The balcony could use a little updating. I really like the outdoor cabanas by the pool but good luck trying to get a drink from the pool bar. My husband and I went to the bar and sat there for 25 minutes before we received our drinks. The bar was not full and there were 2 bartenders. Seemed like they have students here that do internships. Also no manager to be found at th... Read more

This is a wonderful restaurant and hotel. The menu is diverse (yes pricey, but well worth it). Take your friends here and you can sit on the rockers on the porch with a drink looking at the Edgartown Lighthouse before you have dinner. Lovely views of the harbor. Good service and just about any table is terrific. Try their brunches on all the major holidays if you are visiting for one of them.

My wife and I reserved a room for the July 4th, 2016 holiday weekend at the Harbor View Hotel. The hotel is pricey and has an excellent reputation, but we were disappointed. Upon our arrival in the early afternoon, we were pleased to learn that our room was ready. We checked in and upon opening the door to the room we immediately were confronted with the obvious fact that prior occupants had smoked in the room. This in a supposed smoke free hotel.

First off, I've never actually stayed at the Harbor View. But I've spent hours on the front porch, overlooking the harbor and the lighthouse, enjoying a cold beer, a couple of dozen oysters, and good conversation. There is a quaint little bar/pub, and a full restaurant. The front porch is open to all, not just guests...grab a rocking chair or a comfy couch and do some people watching, or gaze out at the boat traffic. The locations is phenomenal. We usually stay up near the airport, but always ... Read more

We enjoyed a porch concert at the Harbor View yesterday. These informal concerts are sponsored by island radio station WMVY and this one featured the wonderful acapella group "Vineyard Sound." We sat on the lovely veranda and ordered drinks from the cash bar. No cover, no hassle. We are not staying at the hotel. We have in the past and found it a bit formal for our tastes. However, this event I think is really making me take another look at this beautifully situated property. Come and tak... Read more

In short: Pros - great setting/position, rooms were a good size, staff were very friendly, hotel felt cozy. Cons - although pool area was nice, there were not enough sun beds for everyone. Fortunately, I spent most of my time in the pool with the kids but if I needed a sunbed, they were severely limited in number. I would definitely recommend this hotel to couples and/or families. It is just a short stroll into town, which is lovely, and also a short stroll to the beach and lighthouse.

The location in Edgartown was convenient and the views are beautiful. We had a good breakfast in the restaurant downstairs. The pool never had enough chairs, so we couldn't spend time there. It seemed like the main part of the Hotel has been renovated, and the grounds are beautiful, but not all the areas of the property are in good repair. Our balcony had mossy uneven carpet flooring, and peeling paint on the exterior. There were a couple of stairways that weren't closed off to guests, but ... Read more

I felt like royalty when I looked out at the harbor from the porch of the hotel on a beautiful rocking chair. When you look at the hotel standing at the lighthouse you cannot believe the beauty of this old world hotel.

The phenomenal location of this hotel is allowing it to get by with an increasingly tired interior and increasingly frustrating service year by year. We have stayed at the Harbor View four times in the past four years, three times as a couple and once as a family, and I'm sad to say this fourth time was our last. A previous reviewer said she "felt like royalty" looking at at the view from the front porch. Be forewarned you're likely not to have the same feeling (or anything close) inside. Th... Read more
