I've stayed at the Jared house three times now, always had great service, staff is very friendly. Rooms are nice, with good bathrooms. I would definitely stay there again. They go out of their way to accommodate me each time.

This is actually my first review on Tripadvisor despite the fact that my wife and I travel 5-6 times a year. In the past, I have stayed at an Inn in Nantucket which gets top ratings on Tripadvisor. This was my first time at the Jared Coffin House. The room were spacious and appointed with everything you would ever need.... More

Spent a long weekend here as a family return to old stomping grounds. This is such a Nantucket classic. Comfortable, graceful public rooms. Helpful staff. Our room was fine, not great but more than fine. Comfortable bed. The bath was way dated and small but worked. No issues in staying here and would stay again

We came upon the Jared Coffin House in high season on Nantucket. The staff were great, especially Shanika at the desk. She work hard to extend our stay, which she did, at less than the $800 to $1,000 a night which was not uncommon for Nantucket in the summer. The hotel is historic in its own right, is conveniently located,... More

Waited for our very straightforward food FOREVER. Service was not amazing. My steak fries had amazing fries but the steak was tough as old boots. The terrace outside is nice enough on a balmy night but the indoor restaurant lacks any attempt at ambiance.

We only stayed in Nantucket for one night (the end of a week-long trip to Cape Cod/Martha's Vineyard). Honestly - we chose it because I had credit at hotels.com and after we had gotten done booking the rest of the week, wanted to cash in that credit towards the room. It's a former mansion that has been turned into a... More

We booked a room at the last minute when we had some flight issues. The staff at the hotel when we checked in was great (even got some toiletries!). The hotel is beautiful, love that it is an old mansion! Our room was advertised as "small" and while the room was a good size the bathroom was as advertised. Location... More

This classic mansion hotel has an amazing history most do not know about. I have stayed here several times because my beloved departed parents stayed here on their honeymoon in early September 1943 when it was called "The Ocean House." It had a wrap around classic 19th century porch, long removed to restore its original appearance as Nantucket's first hotel... More

We stayed here over the 4th of July. We schlepped in from the ferry with a ton of stuff - we always drag along way more stuff than we need for a beach trip - and the staff met us on the street and totally took everything up for us and got us settled in very quickly. The entire staff... More

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights at JCH. We had room 401 which was a king, corner room and delightful. (The only negative is that the bathroom floor has a slant and is made of tile. There were many times that we both almost slipped and fell.) The bed was extremely comfortable and beautifully made up! In my... More
