Excellent location. Staff were proficient, friendly, helpful from the time we checked in. The only slight issue was limited menu selection otherwise, we enjoyed the resort to the maximum. We certainly would come back and will definitely recommend this place to friends and relatives

We have stayed here before, and this second trip was for a wedding which we planned with, Allison, one of the event planners. The hotel manages a lot of events, so she was busy. Her event planning was handled fairly, efficiently and the execution was flawless. The weather complicated things somewhat so we were able to use the living room with fireplace for nearly 40 pictures. The other guests were very accommodating as we took over the one large public space available. We were in one of the cottages for a week, and during that time, we had the attention of the manager, Clark, Brian, Dale and a few others who bent over backwards to address the problems. We guaranteed 25 rooms so the hotel worked hard to have rooms ready for our guests. The reception food was very good. Overall, we would give this an 11 on a scale of 1-10 in most respects but a 6 housekeeping and room quality in the Mayhew building, both of which were inconsistent. Important to note is that they have a new manager in place, Clark. He is working hard to restore confidence and morale.

Room Tip: Rooms in the main building are spacious and some come with a view. No elevator in the Mayhew buildi...

We opted for the annex, thinking it would be quieter - might not have been a good idea as we were disturbed by neighbors' conversations and we had to don coats to get to the main building. But the room was perfectly pleasant and the housekeeping staff friendly and efficient. Main lobby staff were helpful and the staff in Henry's bar were friendly and efficient. Views can't be beat. Everyone we met went out of their way to be friendly.

There isn't another hotel like it on MV. Everything about the hotel is 5 Stars. Every staff member was professional, polite and well informed. Not a cross one in the lot. The food was great, as was the staff in the restaurant. You have to stay at the Harbor View Hotel. If they are booked, you must go to the restaurant.

Room Tip: Pay a few dollars more for a harbor view.

Stayed here for 2 nights in October 2013. Martha's Vineyard us such a beautiful place and the hotel is situated in a great part if Edgartown. The room was massive and my stay was very relaxing. The staff are all great and the breakfast was good. There is free Starbucks coffee in the lobby every morning. Staying here was like being in heaven and I hope to return some day. It is simply the place to stay at the vineyard.

We had a wonderful trip to Martha's Vineyard, & thoroughly enjoyed our stay @ the Harbor View Hotel. Staff was knowledgeable & friendly; rooms were spacious (top floor in Bradley Cottage), grounds were lovely, views were terrific & location for our group of 6 was terrific - walking distance to town for shopping, restaurants, & bars. Thoroughly enjoyed the sunset cruise - great time! We all agreed upon leaving that we would return & plan to stay @ the Harbor View again.

Room Tip: Enjoyed the view on the front porch of the hotel; lobby was also very welcoming & offered nice v...

My last review of the Harbor View was not a pretty site...If it was not for my wife and kids there would be no way I would go back. However, because of the Columbus Day holiday schedule I had little choice. We pulled in at 2:00 on Monday - my heart fluttered and not in a good way. Made my way to the front desk and was met with a super nice girl - Molly. She took the time and effort to go over the layout (read my last year's review about the room) and my request for a corner room top floor - preferably with no one in the next room. She did a great job and we got the corner room on the third floor overlooking the pool. The room was not ready but a quick walk to the lighthouse and it was ready upon our return. Good so far. Room was clean and ready to go. We rested up and then went shopping. We went for dinner and returned, got desert (no problem this time) and drinks. No noise - yeah. Morning was great and they served free Starbuch's coffee... Nice touch...

The hotel staff all did a great job this time and they really made a effort. So my worries returning the Harbor View this year were unfounded. I can say that there was a definite improvement in almost every aspect of our visit. Keep in mind that the hotel was at 20% occp. rate compared with high season so there were few guests to contend with.

Room Tip: 3rd floor corner room a must...
