The Beachside at Nantucket

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Staff was friendly and helpful. Walking distance to the ferry, downtown, shuttle, beach and lighthouse. Quiet and away from the noise of downtown.

great place to stay. Close to jetty's beach and close to downtown. Also walking distance to lighthouse.

Hotel and our stay was pretty good overall. It's a 7 min walk to the beach. 10 min walk to the restaurants. The room was nice & clean overall, but the bed was a bit too soft I woke up with my back & neck aching.

This looked like a good deal, but we ended up spending $406.00 per night including tax and we did not get a poolside room as quoted. The staff was very nice, buthe rate from Very misleading

Hotel is reasonably pretty. It is walkable to downtown and on one of the public bus lines. I would not recommend to a friend at the price level I was charged.

Great place to stay right between Jetties beach and Downtown. Everything is within walking distance. It's a little dated but it's location makes a up for it. If you're just looking for a place to lay your head, this is it.

You can't beat the location. Close to down town and Jetties Beach. So close that you could walk to both. Everything was clean, just a little outdated. There was a faint musty odor when you first walked into the room.

Staff was not hospitable at all. They made it seem as though we were there to provide them a job as opposed to our being treated like guests. Management needs to train them all over again on how to treat guests.

This Nantucket motel was just perfect for 3 nights and very close to town for shopping, dining and nightlife. It was reasonably priced and Charmaine at the front desk made sure that we had everything we needed. The included continental breakfast was great. The bartender at the Meetinghouse, the on site bar, was also friendly and accomodating. The pool was sparkling clean and the lifeguard on duty kept the pool area neat and tidy. The location was terrific... just a short walk to town and back, to walk off the calories eaten at the fine restaurants and taverns on Nantucket. I would definitely book a reservation at this motel again.

Very roomy. All the accommodations of home: a bathtub and a frig are always a plus! Everyone was so friendly and helpful too.

We requested a handicap accesibile room as my elderly mother walks with some difficulty and uses a cane. To accommodate her, they upgraded us from a single room with double beds to a large 2 bedroom, 2 bath suite with a walkin shower at no extra cost. This was in late June after the major tourist season had begun. The suite had 2 porches and a small grassy yard. Two members of the staff showed up within 10 minutes of my call to reprogram a TV remote. I thought I had left something in my room after checkout and called the Inn to inquire about it. Within 10 minutes they returned my call and expressed sincere concern that they had not found it (the missing item was in my bag afterall). I highly recommend the Beachside at Nantucket.
