Vineyard Harbor Motel
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Vineyard Haven
Reviewed 18 October 2016

This was our first time to Martha's Vineyard and we had no idea what to expect. We Checked out the Brochures at the ferry office, where we were told that there was only about 3 places to stay on the island (wrong). it was getting late and we got careless. on the internet and brochures this looked like a very nice place (wrong again). it was a short walk from the ferry dock and when we arrived we were shocked. but now it is getting dark, we are on the island and it is starting to rain. We were told that our room was not available because the owner had shown up and wanted the room we were promised. the room offered, as a upgraded, had several rooms and beds. it looked like a boarding house. they offered a refund, which we accepted, they we realized that we were on the island, in the dark, in the rain, with no place to stay. then we asked to see what else they could offer us. it was a small room but appeared clean so we accepted. the bed had not head board. there was a homemade table attached to the wall made from 2x4's. it was terrible. the night before we spent in the Hyatt Regency in Greenwich, so it was a step down to say the least. the room was promised but not available. the picture was deceiving and the room was not as represented. the owner who took our room passed through the office a couple of times while we were there but he did not even speak. He appeared middle eastern. the good thing was that the person helping us was very nice and friendly. surprisingly the bed slept good and like i said, the place seemed clean. As we discovered, there are lots of places to stay on the island. Edgartown was a very nice section with several very nice places to stay. As for us, we will be much more carefull next time and i do not intend to return to Martha's Vineyard. and by the way, they charge $200 a night for this joint.

Hello,
We are very sorry you feel this way. As you can see from our other reviews we have a tendency to bend over backwards to please our guests. We did offer you a couple of different rooms and we did give you a refund when you said you would rather go to another hotel. When you got back from seeing the other hotel and decided to stay with us and you said you were OK with the room we put you in, we thought we satisfied your needs.

Best Regards,

Christine

Decent place close to the ferry. It in not a touristy area however, if you want that stay in Edgartown or Oak Bluff. Staff was friendly, nice room. Great views. Free but limited parking. Make sure you check out the market across the street!

It's my first time staying at Martha's Vineyard and this place made it well worth my 6 hour trip(bus-train-ferry) from NY. The bedroom was kind of small but the mini fridge was the cherry on top. Bathroom was decent and well cleaned. The staff were very helpful and friendly. What I love most is the private beach located just a few steps from the rooms. It's a nice retreat after a day exploring the island. Location is near to the ferry and bus station, also to restaurants, groceries, and stop & shop. Overall a great place to stay during you trip to Martha's! Will definitely be back next summer.

Just looking for an inexpensive night with AC. This visit turned out to be a very memorable stay. Watching the sunrise in Vineyard Haven harbor was unexpected treat. Nice location, close to ferry, town and restaurants. Even a private beach!

Affordable and in a great location. Nice little private beach. Awesome for little kids. Staff is as good as it gets. Rooms are not large but everything works great. AC cable and especially wi fi. Right on bus line for rides to Oak Bluffs and beyond. You will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: Some rooms have been recently renovated. This review was based on the older rooms.
