Guest Testimonials

Year after year, and season after season, the historic Harbor View Hotel is proud to provide memorable Martha's Vineyard experiences. Read our Martha's Vineyard hotel reviews below and see what guests have to say about our sophisticated accommodations, personalized service, and unrivaled amenities in Edgartown, MA.

"We arrived in April and absolutely loved our stay. We were in a one bedroom suite/cottage. It was exquisite. It was completely updated and well furnished down to wine glasses, coffee mugs, plates, etc. with a dishwasher and a refrigerator! Splendid shower and fabulous fireplace! It did not have a view of the water, but the view was the best from the rocking chairs on the front porch of the hotel with a coffee in hand from Henry's. Walking distance to downtown for dinner and then to the light house out front! Very quiet and cozy! I would stay here again!"

Kim, via TripAdvisor

"It's taken me some time to write this but it needed to be done. We were at the hotel last year with another couple and stayed in one of the Captain's Cottage, our accommodations couldn't have been nicer. Beautiful decor, clean rooms and lots of space. The concierge Darlene was perfect! We contacted her prior to our arrival on the island to get some ideas and then executed most of her suggestions when we arrived. We give her full credit for giving us the best possible advice that really made our most of our time on Martha's Vineyard magical! Her friendly but professional service was appreciated and she is one of the best concierges we've ever dealt with! You can tell that she knows her stuff and genuinely cares about the hotel guests. Seek her out so that you get the most out of your vacation on MV, you can trust her ideas. The pub Henry's was one of our favorite spots to grab a drink or lunch. We enjoyed the porch with the grand view of the Edgartown Lighthouse. We'll be back."

Eric, via TripAdvisor

"Amazing property a short walk from the center of town. Hotel faces the harbor and lighthouse. Incredible sunrises, great wrap around porch with rocking chairs. Wonderful restaurant and small lounge. There`s an outdoor pool and fitness room. This place has it all and very comfortable and quiet."

Bill, via TripAdvisor

"Was a pleasure staying at this lovely Hotel for a second time; both times involving a long journey from Australia 5 years apart. The staff were wonderful to us, we love the 'feel' of this place and you really cannot beat the position with uninterrupted views across the water."

Sharon, via TripAdvisor
