I first visited the Edgartown Inn back in 1978 during my first visit to The Vineyard. Loved it then and glad to see it still has the charm as the first time I visited over 35 years ago. The inn has been lovingly maintained. Though it's not included in the room rate, the breakfast is a must. Great location in...

Edgartown Inn was a really great stay, just wish it was for longer. The house is exactly the type of place you want to stay on the vineyard. Great interior. Room was very clean. Lovely porch with loungers. Location is unbeatable for the price. Sandi at front desk was very nice and obliging! would recommend a stay here to anyone!

My friend and i stayed here this weekend and had a mixed experience. We were on the top floor in the kings room and it was charming with a nice love seat to sit on and a very large window that overlooked the street but also had a tiny view of the ocean. We found the inn keeper a little...

Charming inn in the lovely town of Edgartown, very well located,convenient for local buses all around the island, great service, just one thing we could at least get a free coffee cup! breakfast, though not included, is extremely good, fresh baked cakes from the day.

First of all, I want to say "thank you" to all of you who reviewed this hotel, the reviews had pertinent information for me. I stayed in the General Charles Sumner room; good size, had its own large bathroom, bed was firm but I like that; hotel beds are notoriously soft and lumpy! A/c unit worked great, tho I overhead...

I've been a longstanding island visitor since I was a child. Even these days, I try to make it out the Vineyard yearly, during the Spring or Summer. While I do stay on the Island & most commonly in Edgartown, I have yet to visit the Edgartown Inn. On a recent trip, my wife & I stopped by for breakfast...

great location and good value. Better than staying in one of the larger hotels. only issue was the window air conditioning unit not really cooling the room all that much. I also wish breakfast was included for hotel guests so you would get more of a "bed and breakfast" feel (even if room rate goes up). front porch is lovely...

First of all, I've stayed at the Inn for roughly 15 years in a row (a week at a time). I've also stayed in the room that has been so inordinately panned by a few critics. The room in question, (The Maple Room) is not musty or dusty in any way, shape, or form. It is a well kept, well...

We stayed at the Inn for a wedding on the Vineyard and after trying many inns without success, was able to book the last room here. Not expecting much but realizing we would spend very little time at the inn, we were pleasantly surprised with the accommodations. The room was small as we were told when we booked, but roomy...

We spent a perfect two days here and found the staff, the room and the common spaces really lovely. We had a top floor room with a balcony and view of the bay, had breakfast in the garden one morning and enjoyed sitting on the comfy front porch watching people go by. Highly recommend this place, it feels quintessentially vineyard!

“Corner rooms have great cross ventilation while rooms near the back of the inn are a little quieter since they are away from the street.”

“Its all good!”
 of 5 bubbles CTSopper, 16 Aug 2016 | Read review
“Rooms towards the back have less street noise but the doors are across from each other. It's a very old house, so doors don't close quietly.”

“I had the room downstairs across from the check in office, it was perfectly fine. But, choose an upstairs room if you want more privacy and quiet.”
