My wife stayed here thirty years ago and thought it was more genuine to the period when the hotel was built. The hotel has been upgraded, but many of the rooms are small in the main building. We could hardly walk around our bed and our room was always too hot no matter what the staff did to fix it.... More

Great location, and excellent service. It was a very small room with just a full sized bed (just as advertised), but very clean and comfortable. We used the courtesy shuttle and enjoyed the complementary breakfast.

I recommend this place to stay, the location, the staff, and the rooms are great. The quality of the breakfast are very good. The best place in Nantucket for the price that you pay. They give you all the facilities to enjoy a trip to the beach: water, umbrellas and chairs.
