The Clarion has always been our home away from home on Martha's Vineyard. Nice spacious rooms and a great location. Convenient to pick up provisions for your stay. I would highly recommend it. It is an easy walk to the downtown area and also to walk the back streets of the residential side of Edgartown.

Check in was Ok, my first thought was we had made a big mistake booking here. No one to help with luggage. No elevator, the halls were smelly like a badly run care facility. The room looked Ok. Bathroom needed alittle TLC. Very old. The employees during the day were more interested in chatting amongst themselves than answering any of...

Thank you for your concern, the hotel was inspected by a licensed exterminator. No insects were found to be in your room or in the hotel. The insect you presented to the front desk was identified as a fruit fly. As you are aware you stayed at the hotel 2 nights with out complaint, it was your departing day your...

I spent four nights from September 20th. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was relieved to find the hotel in a good part of the town and conveniently located near restaurants and right next door to a grocery store. It is about a mile from downtown Edgartown and not far from roads pointing in every direction on the...

Thank you for your kind words. We appreciate your feed back and are glad you enjoyed the hotel. We hope to see you again soon. We are conveniently located a short walk to downtown Edgartown. Our guest love being a little bit away from the crowds of the town, and being close to the Stop and Shop.

Worst check in experience ever. Took over 45 minutes, after which we gave up and moved elsewhere at 6.30p.m. without two rooms previously booked. Receptionist did not know how to process credit cards. The Manager was not on the premises. The acting Manager was arrogant and unhelpful. No help with luggage. Interior of Hotel looked old and dirty and was...

Before I arrived I had low hopes for this stay – I was happy to be proven wrong. All the boutique hotels were sold out, so we booked at the Clarion. Yes the rooms and the interior left no doubt that it was a typical budget chain hotel, but they were perfectly functional and very, very large. The location works--getting...

The Clarion Inn Martha's Vineyard was very clean and in a great location. The hotel has very attentive and professional staff. A great daily continental breakfast is offered that has many choices. I would recommend this if you're looking for a traditional hotel stay.

Pluses: nice large clean room, comfortably if generically furnished. Continental breakfast was carb-laden but adequate. Deli and grocery store next door were handy, as was fridge in the room. BUT...not really worth the unconscionable price gouging over the 4th of July weekend, so far from the center of town.

Thank you for your kind words about our hotel. I do sympathize as the distance to Edgarotonw. We are less then a half mile from the center of Edgartown. We are on the bus line which can take our guest to any town of Martha's Vineyard. The demand for hotel space over the summer and holiday does cause higher rates...

Hotel has a policy of requiring guest drivers license number and home address be entered into the registration computer. I refused, and was refused a room. This clearly subjects ALL GUESTS to an additional layer of potential identity theft, and a clear violation of privacy. I was paying by MasterCard. MasterCard publishes rules that merchants are contractually obligated to follow....

You may not be aware but all hotels ask to see your ID and a valid credit card. Your Id was not copied but noted as matching the credit card.
