This inn is a charming, inviting place to stay. Wish we had had more time there. Lovely place! We were able to leave our luggage before check-in while exploring the island. The rockers on the porch were so inviting.

We have been coming to the Harbor View Hotel since 1990. It's an exquisite hotel with lots of charm. We fell in love with the location (can't get this view anywhere else in Edgartown) and decide to get married at the Harbor View in 1993. We've been returning to this special place ever since. The rooms and amenities are perfect,...

Wow--this place is the worst. I will begin with the statement that I travel a lot and frequently use the American Express Platinum services, this place needs to be reported to board of health for the cleanliness. I saw staff drinking beverages behind the bar, I know one was definitely poured with Kettle One vodka, and she made drinks for...

My husband and I came to the Vineyard for our very first time so I could attend a professional conference that was held at the Harbor View. Having never been to Edgartown before, it made perfect sense for us to stay at the hotel where the conference was held. So very glad for the Harbor View experience. Its name speaks...

Were told room was being inspected and it would be 10 min. 1 hr. later - still being told 10 more minutes. Finally around 5 we were given our room. It was a handicapped room which had an odor.

This hotel is positioned in a perfect location at the quieter end of Edgartown, overlooking the beach. We spent six days there after a hectic week in New York and Boston, so it was a perfect hotel for us. The rooms are a great size although the bathroom was a little small. The restaurants and bars were great, with good...

Too bad about this property. Lovely old building but very badly run and very shabby. $700 dollar room featured chipped furniture, dirty carpets, peeling bathroom paint and a plastic shower insert. Nicely renovated lobby, restaurant and bar staffed by virtually untrained personnel. Standards much higher at your average Holiday Inn Express. Clearly hotel manager is not up to the ask.

The Harbor View has everything going for it in terms of location. The hotel enjoys a fabulous view and the main building is everything you would expect with a large front porch and beautiful lobby.
