Harborside Inn Review

With rates that are considerably lower than most Waterfront hotels—as low as $119 in the off season— this hotel with an understated charm is an exceptional value. Unlike its hip sister property The Charlesmark, the Harborside is anchored throughout by a modern maritime theme that includes a generous use of teak and classic maps of the Boston waterfront. Many of the snug rooms have windows overlooking an interior atrium, which extends eight stories up to the roof. Some rooms and common spaces have exposed brick. Amenities include flat-screen TVs, surround-sound stereo, and complimentary Wi-Fi. Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market, and the North End are all short walks away. For a great view, request a room overlooking the city; for a quieter stay, book a room that faces the interior atrium.

    Harborside Inn-- nice historic place, in great location

    We stayed at The Harborside Inn, which is in the midst of things in Edgartown. It sits on the edge of a gorgeous residential neighborhood which is fun to wander and look at the beautiful homes and gardens. The Harborside is a very nice place, especially if you can reserve a balcony room with a full-on view of the harbor. The lodging we had was in one of three historic whaling captains' homes, which are very well-maintained and charming.

    Our room was good-sized, with a relatively new bathroom. The ceiling fan and A/C kept it cool, plus its beautiful little private balcony provided extra space. We were extremely pleased with it, having read a negative review on TripAdvisor that the hotel was dated and rooms extremely small, which was NOT our experience. We'd also read that the place can be overrun with children because it has some owner units. But we saw many more kids at the Harborview.
