Our first visit to the Harbor View Hotel, was 15 years ago on our 15th wedding anniversary, and we've been in awe ever since!!! We try to save money for a special trip here each year...however, sometimes it's just for the day...We especially enjoy the kindness, comfort, the hospitality, and the gorgeous views the Harbor View offers year round!!! We have never been disappointed!! We highly recommend a visit as soon as you can, and once you do, it'll be hard to beat the satisfaction you'll get, that you can't find at too many other places!!! This is an A+ experience at an A+ Hotel!! The Verriers

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the view of the ocean!!

My wife and I were looking for a getaway with our 4 month old son. This turned out to be just the perfect place. Martha's Vineyard is not the best destination for April travel and the weather made it so. Despite a rainy/sloppy day, the location of this hotel and the hotel itself made up for our trip.

One can say its on the shore and has great views of the Atlantic.

The only reason for 3start service is the house keeping number was someone's voicemail and we kept calling front desk, who'd in turn figure things out for us.

Room Tip: Ask for water facing room when making reservation

What a wonderful stay! Our cottage suite was spectacular. Previous reviews and pictures on line do not do justice to how lovely, well appointed, spacious, comfortable these suites are. We were on the Vineyard during mediocre weather, but it didn't matter- coming back to such a warm and welcoming place was such a pleasure. This was truly one of best suites we have ever stayed in.

Very nice hotel located within Edgartown, with a superb spit-head beach directly in front of the hotel. The hotel is reasonably priced (out of season it was down to (£60/night) with a high-class entrance hall and lounge, as well as a decent dining room with superb sea views. Many of the rooms are not in the main hotel, but part of the resort it holds, but all are nice and the area is quite and smart. Breakfast seems not to be included, but that could be as it was out of season. The location is very good, and if one chose to use the bus, it is a 10 minute walk (though the taxi's are a better bet). The hotel also has it's own pontoon/jetty for arriving boats. Well recommended.

The entire hotel was spotlessly clean. The staff were consistently helpful -- more than that, pleasant and eager to answer any questions. The location is perfect: an easy walk from the village ( 4 or 5 blocks?), from the bus to the ferry, and to restaurants and diners. The view is breathtaking: a lighthouse within view of the front porch.

Room Tip: Call the hotel directly

My girlfriend and I found this gem after she searched online for good deals. She found us a cottage suite at the Harbor View Hotel & Resort. First of all the view that met us as pulled in to the hotel was ridiculous. There's a small island with a lighthouse right there (couples take note: romantic walks on the beach abound!). Absolutely gorgeous.
The first thought we both had when we walked in to the cottage suite was a mixture of speechless and a wonder if they had accidentally mixed up the prices online. We thought there must have been a typo. How could we afford this!? We had stumbled upon the best and most magical word: "off-season".
She and I had to explore, take tons of pictures, and eventually sit down in silence just taking all the wonder in.
If you're asking me to split hairs, I could say there were a few small stains on the carpet...but the people who would let that ruin the oppulence aren't people I'd hang around with.
Another thing I'd like to mention is Henry's, the restaurant within the hotel itself. Incredible food and great service. I will say that you are paying for what you get. Excellent for a special anniversary dinner (like ours).
I honestly can't say enough about this place. Beautiful grounds, fantastic suite, and great service. My girlfriend and I will be back year after year.

We only had one night but wished we could have had more.
The staff were great especially Lisa at the bar.
We went off season but could imagine how brilliant it would be to go in the summer.
Our only dissapointment was that instead of giving us a room with a view, to begin with they just gave us one with a view of some buildings......Although they did upgrade us after I agreed to pay more. Why they couldnt have just put us in this room anyway??? It was hardly full!!!
Apart from that it was Fabulous!
