Amazing location, beautifully renovated and convenient

Air conditioning was not working properly. Bathroom was extremely small. Despite limited guests at hotel, the location of our room was poor. On good side, the front porch and view were fantastic. Staff was great. But for price, we won’t be heading back.

Great property major improvements , staff are very accommodating

Property is beautiful and you can’t beat the location. It has been renovated and is beautifully appointed.

this hotel needs work.....but it will be happing in a few weeks

Beautiful hotel and grounds -- walking distance to beach across from hotel and into town with restaurants

Hotel is lovely though service was mixed. Cottage was well equipped particularly the kitkchen. Complimentary bikes and umbrellas are a nice touch for the guests and much appreciated! Pool is lovely & lawn games also fun. Lighthouse Grill staff and some of he bellmen/front desk staff seemed a bit inexperienced. Summer rates demand best in class service throughout he property. Will always return to this beautiful spot though with the fabulous front porch & rocking chairs overlooking the ocean. Happy summer!

Fantastic location and great hotel. Cooling system did not work, but it was cold Spring day, so did not matter.

The hotel is quaint and the staff is very nice and knowledgeable about the history of the hotel and island. The food was surprisingly good, the grounds were clean and well maintained and the views are just beautiful. Our room was clean and they gave us a free upgrade which was very nice with beautiful views. The only negative for me was the 4 pm check in time. We arrived there about noon and wanted to put our bags away and was excited to begin our 2 day stay on the island. The check-in staff informed us that check in was 4pm and that she would try to get us in earlier. There were a lot of people in the lobby area waiting as well eager to get in their room and get situated. at 3:55pm we were notified that our room was ready. By the time we put our clothes away and cleaned up it was dinner time. In my opinion, the check-in time should be earlier. Most people stay on the island for a only a few days. When you check in that late, it felt like we lost half of our first day of our 2 day stay. Other than that, it was very nice.

Hotel is falling apart - not what you expect when you pay $550/night

Loved it ! Perfect location, romantic or for families

We loved our stay at the Harbor View. The hotel was clean and very accommodating. The staff was very helpful especially the concierge who gave us directions for a self guided tour of the island, which we loved. My one complaint was our room, while clean and very cozy we were right over the garbage/entrance area. Every morning there was a lot of noise due to the garbage pickup and/or a tour bus arriving. Being early risers it didn't bother us a ton but was definitely not ideal.

My husband and I really enjoyed the stayed in Harbor View Hotel. All the staff members were super friendly, the hotel is super nice and clean. The view from the rooms and the front porch are breath taken!! We really enjoyed!!!

Great stay at the Harborview for Christmas. Beautiful location. Christmas lights were so pretty and the views of the lighthouse were spectacular!

Great location, great porch, great fireplace area..!

Great place to stay. Fantastic location. If you don't have a car, its an easy location to walk to restaurants. Also close to shuttles. The view across from the hotel is beautiful. The hotel is very clean, staff is great. We had a wonderful stay there.

I was going to stay one night and experience this hotel because I am planning my wedding for next year here. So i like to check out this property in advance. The hotel is about 18 mins drive from wood holes/oak buff ferry terminal. It's right in the Edgartown. So you can find many shops, cafe and pubs by 5 mins walking distance from the hotel. Of course there are some nice seafood restaurants nearby. Check in was fast. We arrive at 1130am but the room was not ready. The reception Julia was so helpful and call me when the room was ready at 1230am. There is free parking right at the back of the hotel. Hotel lobby is cosy, pretty and facing to the harbour. There are outdoor balcony, you can sit there looking out to the water and listen to the ocean. We got a room at the main building. It's a standard size room. I expect the room would be like those standard american average style, very old carpet, old sheet, rough towel,...etc. However, it's not. The bed sheet is very comfortable and soft, i would say the bed sheet quality as good as four season, mandarin oriental hotel. The towels are soft. The bed was comfortable. Room was super clean. It looks like partial renovation. I think the hotel mangement have carefully thought each item they put in the room. It would be great if they provide two free bottles of water in the room. You know it's very hot in summer at MV. The hotel has a heated pool with life guard on site. Most of the staff seem they are on working holiday. So they are super friendly, and always carrying a lovely smile. I have dinner at water restaurant in the hotel. The food was excellent. I read lot of reviews about the main chef Nathan, and like to try out his works. Truly amazing. On the second day we met up with the wedding planer Allison and she us around the hotel and facilities. She was very helpful. I got to check out the entire properties and the cottage room. The cottage suites are amazing. If you come to stay in this hotel and can afford the suites, you can't miss that because those suites look like HGTV dream home and it is super cosy. Good for family, honeymoon, couples and friend gathering. Overall stay 5 stars. Thank you!

I was not impressed with the Handicap Room that we were assigned. We did not need a handicap room. The room was not part of the nice hotel, but in a section that had been added at a later date. The area was wonderful. Easy walk down to Edgartown, and the view from the front of the hotel overlooking a light house was great.

Booked last minute offseason. Room was clean, location and view are great. There may be a better value in November on Martha's Vineyard though.

Nice location. This was our first trip to the vineyard
