We made the long drive to this hotel and while the weather was balmy, overcast, this heated is the best part of our trip to Edgartown. The staff were awesome, the concierge so engaging! I m sorry I haven’t had a chance to comment right after the trip, but we made many memories

Wouldn’t stay there again if it was free. Management was rude. Arrive on Friday night and couldn’t have a wine or drink. A wedding party had booked the bar for the evening. 54 degrees and no heat. They hadn’t turned it on. No extra blankets available. No apologies available

My friend went here for her honeymoon a last week. I had called the front desk and purchased a gift certificate for her to use at the hotel restaurants during her stay. I purchased it over the phone and they assured me that they would give her the gift certificate upon check-in.

Having come from Boston and the smallest room/bathroom ever, our spacious room in the Mayhew building was a nice surprise. We're low maintenance travellers, didn't use the lifts, TV, phone or in house restaurant so can't comment on those. The bed was very comfortable, the

Hello People2people, Thank you for your question. The renovations are slated for October until May, 2019. We are renovating both the Victorian (main building) and the Mayhew Building. The hotel refresh will include renovations to the hotel lobby, ocean front restaurants, grand ballroom and event spaces; a refresh of all guest rooms and bathrooms; the addition of a brand-new fitness center; and an upgrade to on-site technology. We are looking forward to having a spectacular hotel re-launch. We hope to have your support as we usher in the New Harbor View Hotel. Kind Regards, Diana Rosure

We had no problems with our AC at any time during our visit in April, nor did we see any bugs or experience odors in our room. We always stay in the main hotel so I can't speak to the state of the outlying buildings. It is my understanding that the hotel will be closed for renovations at the end of the season and I expect that, if problems do exist, any issues will be addressed during this period.

Hello RNA123, Thank you for your message. The Harbor View Hotel is a few steps from The Lighthouse Beach and Fuller Street Beach (800 ft. or a 3-min walk). South Beach is 3 miles from The Harbor View Hotel. Oak Bluffs Town Beach is 5 miles away. The beauty of Martha's Vineyard is that we are surrounded with splendid beaches. We hope to see you soon. Sincerely, Diana

The public beach is not walkable (South Beach). It’s about 10 min away by car or longer by bike. But you can walk across the street to the harbor and lighthouse.
