After two nights I was informed I would be changing into a less expensive room( as I had requested and had planned to move). I than realized that my confirmation stated that I would stay in the first room for three nights and not two. I was told the hotel had booked my room for the next guest and knew... More

This is a beautiful hotel right in the historic district. I have to praise Paula for the warmest welcome I have ever received at a hotel. We arrived quite early and they stored our bags and upgraded the room to a king. We went mid week and it was not crowded at all. Paula suggested we take Gail's tour and... More

We recently stayed at the Jared Coffin House for two nights for a pre-season getaway. The hotel (at this time of year) was very reasonably priced and well appointed. We had a lovely room with a king sized bed and huge walk-in closet. The staff were polite but not obtrusive. The hotel could not have been more convenient. A quick... More

We checked in at the Jared Coffin House late Friday night for a weekend stay. This was my first time staying at JCH and if you like New England charm this is YOUR hotel on the island. The wallpaper and decor is quintessential New England and the rooms are cozy enough for two - I was really surprised at how... More

I visited in November, not the primary season for this establishment. First of all, the heat is centrally located and the rooms do not have air conditioning. This makes the temperature in the rooms equivalent to sleeping in your garage. At one point the windows are wide open to cool it down and at another I found myself sleeping with... More

Blown away at the courtesy and service in the classic Nantucket Inn. That alone is enough for us to book here again. Horrendous weather to end a fine Christmas Stroll. Cold, gusting winds and ferries cancelled all day. The Jared Cofgin House was to close for be season but remained open just in case any of their gusts didn't make... More

We go to Nantucket often. When we are on the island we always preferred to stay here. It is a historic property downtown. Convenient to everything you'd want to be close to. The rooms are well appointed, clean and the service is excellent. The restaurant and bar are small but high-quality. We just love this place. Perhaps the only thing... More

Very helpful and friendly staff and a hotel with character and charm in an excellent position in the town all make this a pleasant place to stay. My room was on the small side but clean and well-furnished, with a comfortable bed. There is a bar attached to the hotel, a good place to sit outside and relax. The breakfast... More

Classic, beautiful building with perfect location. Walking distance to everything in town. Did not dine at Nantucket Prime but did try out the outdoor patio/bar and the drinks and setting were fabulous. The room was as expected, however 2 major gripes- bathroom is very outdated and the bed was extremely creaky/noisy- I woke myself up with every turn. We used... More

The "JC" as it is called by the locals is touted as the oldest building in Nantucket. If that is true, then it is has been very well maintained and is a real gem. The room we stayed in on the third floor was very comfortable and relaxing. Since this historic building has been converted in a number of ways... More
