The "high-level" summary is that we loved this hotel.
It's in a great location, is reasonably priced, has a nice pool and has a playground for kids.

This is a picture of the main building next to the pool. As you can see, it has 2 levels and nice walkways overlooking the pool.
Edgartown Commons describes itself as having "housekeeping units". They do not do daily cleaning of the bedsheets and do not have phones in the rooms. However, our cell phones worked fine and they have laundry facilities.
We stayed in a 2-bedroom suite which had separate rooms for each bedroom, a kitchen, a living area, bathroom and a nice, private deck. It was in a building right next to the main building and the pool. It also had a private side yard with a picnic table and bbq grill !
This is the living room area of our suite. It had a nautical decor and there was a selection of board games in the bookcase.
This is the kids bedroom. It had a closet, separate beds, nautical decor and windows for ventilation.
This is the kitchen. It came supplied with plates, glasses, silverware and other useful items. There were plenty of cabinets and a good size fridge.
This is the pool. It's right next to the rooms so it's easy to access. It has plenty of sun chairs and has a smaller kiddie pool right next to the larger pool.
This is the kids playground. It has a slide, climbing rope ladder, swings and a few other small activity items.
It's also just a short (maybe 5 mins) drive to the Stop & Shop supermarket if you plan to stock up and use the kitchen alot for meals.
The suite was a good fit for us with our kids and we loved the private deck and picnic area.
We did not find the lack of phones in the room or the "reduced" room service to be drawbacks.
The only aspect some folks may dislike is that the rooms (at least the suite we stayed in) were a little bit musty. This is not a brand new hotel in the city and we were ok with that. It has the charming Vineyard architectural style and has real wood buildings with some peeling paint and other characteristics you get with older wood structures.
We would absolutely recommend Edgartown Commons for it's great location, good value, pool and playground.
