“Simply Perfect”
Reviewed 28 June 2009

Wonderful location right in the center of town, but on the water! Our room was lovely, overlooking the bay. About 10 restaurants within a few blocks, little ferry to chappy, bike rentals. Everything for a casual vacation.

Stayed May 2009, travelled as a couple

We stayed at the Harborside, having exchanged out timeshare in England. We were very happy when we saw our accommodation. We had room 204 which was a 2-bed suite as we had two friends with us. The accommodation was clean and very comfortable. The kitchens had every conceivable thing you could possibly want and were a very good way of meeting new people and sharing experiences and also cut the cost of eating dramatically and Martha's Vineyard is very expensive. The rooms were services every day and were kept very clean. The staff were so helpful and friendly and polite we could not have asked for more. The only drawback was the weather which went from hot to cold and wet over a day so we used both aircon and heating which were both efficient. The only drawback was that we overlooked the road and the noise from it started at about 6.30am with lorries and cars loading and unloading but that was not the resort's fault. Would definitely, definitely stay here again.

My husband just got back from a rather cold week at the Harborside Inn. We enjoyed our first trip to Martha's Vineyard, and thought the Harborside Inn was a very pleasant experience. We exchanged one of our timeshares to visit. Our room was a very cozy and we had a beautiful view, and the mattress was quite comfortable.. We enjoyed sharing the kitchen facilities with other guests, and found the kitchens and barbeques very clean. It was fun talking with the guests and learning what restaurants to eat at and what to do. The only drawback was the cold weather, so we were unable to enjoy the pool and the ocean. Many good restaurants in the area.

This expensive hotel has a great location and view but the room was pitiful for $400/night. Not even close to $200 expectations. Big disappointment as the rooms were musty old and furniture was outdated. Bedding felt cheap with no luxury whatsoever. Staff was minimal and bell boy hustled for the local cab company and charged rates higher than standard.

This is our third trip to Martha's Vineyard and to the Harborside Inn.
Once again we were not disappointed both with the area and the hotel. Staff is friendly and helpful and the room and kitchen area are both spotless. It is right on the harbor so from your balcony there are views of the boats and the water. Martha's Vineyard is a great place in the off-season because the crowds are gone leaving the natural beauty to be enjoyed peacefully. We biked all over the island and walked on deserted beaches and nature trails. The restaurants on the Vineyard serve gourmet food although the prices are New York high. The resort has a communal kitchen area where you can prepare meals if you want to cut down on the expense. All in all a great vacation spot. We will definitely return.

We found this hotel lacking New England hospitality and it did not feel like an upmarket establishment. The pool was very small. The hot tub area was very 'municipal'. Staff were not particularly friendly, help with our bags was not automatically offered. We stayed in Milton House which had the feel of a boarding house, funny smell, dirty staircase. The room was ok. Small bathroom - no luxury there, and the pillows and bedding generally felt cheap. The view from the balcony was great, but rooms either side had the air con on all the time, even though temperatures were perfect and we had ours off the whole time. This meant that it felt as though we were sitting at an airport - it was so noisy. The hotel was very expensive and I'd expected so much more. Definitely wouldn't stay here again.

We stayed at the Harborside Inn from July 27th to the 30th. The room was beautiful and very clean. We stayed in room 410 at the C Ripton House which had the best view of the harbor. The bed was big and comfty. The pool is nice and clean. The only thing I would complained is there is no safe in the room and also no elevator! The hotel employees assisted with our luggage though. To improve this hotel would be to add a resturant. You must eat at "Among the Flowers" cafe. We ate there for breakfast & dinner. The food was delicious! We had a really nice relaxing time at the Harborside
