“Incredible location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2012

We spent just one night, and were so impressed with this lovely, classic hotel. The decor of the rooms was a bit dated and fussy, but it's what you'd expect in an old, historic building and it was absolutely charming. We had a room in the Chappaquiddick House on the first floor, with a gorgeous view overlooking the Harbor. The walls in the hallway seemed freshly painted and wallpapered, and the rooms were positively immaculate. Oh, and did I mention it'slocated right in the middle of downtown and withing walking distance to absolutely everything?! This was our first time in Edgartown, and what a wonderful first impression it was! Would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed two nights at the Harborside Inn this past week. We had a wonderful time! Our room was on the third floor... no elevator, but it kinda added to the charm of it. The view from the balcony was absolutely breathtaking. It was our first visit to Martha's Vineyard and this hotel is very centrally located in Edgartown.
Pros- Great location, friendly staff, Beautiful view and clean.
Cons- Rooms are kinda dated, small bathroom with no counterspace, no elevator and they do not have an onsite restaurant.
I would stay here again :)

This Inn has a great location right next to the docks and downtown Edgartown. Our room was spotlessly clean, quiet and comfortable. The lobby has coffee and tea in the morning. I was nervous since we reserved a garden room and the photo on line was of the outside but it is the same as the king size bedroom photo on line. The other major positive not mentioned on the website is yes there is air conditioning and the site should consider adding that data to the room descriptions.

A few details from our stay. The Wifi and cell service (Verizon) were both spotty (sometimes non-existent) in our room and when available it was not very powerful. You will just have to relax with friends or family while here. :-)

I spend four nights at the Harborside Inn in Edgartown at the end July 2012. The staff at the end were all very nice and attentive. The Inn is well located in downtown Edgartown close to shops, restaurants and the harbor. The room was very basic, but clean. The price was very expensive.

My husband and I spend a weekend at Harborside Inn this past August. Since we did not have a car the location of the hotel is great as you can walk to restaurants and shops and the bus stop (if you need to get to another part of the island). The property is very nice, with beautiful flowers in the courtyard and a very nice pool with harbor views. There is also a nice common area by the reception desk that overlooks the harbor and is a nice place to read. These features of the hotel make up for the small rooms (we had a standard room) that are decent for a couple, but would be tight for a family. We found the rooms to be simple and clean overall. Overall, we had a pleasant stay and look forward to coming back!

I love this place due to service and location, however rooms need to be updated and it is a little pricey! The grounds are beautiful and your right in the center of everything. The staff goes above and beyond.

We stayed at the Harborside Inn in Edgartown, MA. for two nights. This was our first trip to Martha's Vineyard and I chose this hotel using Trip Advisor for reviews. We were not disappointed as this turned out to be great place to stay with a with a nice, homey room and a great view of the harbor. Added bonus was a pool, which given the sweltering weather that week, was much appreciated.

Room Tip: Room with a view not necessary to enjoy Martha's Vineyard but was lovely and very relaxing to si...
