We were fortunate to book the last available room for New Year's Eve, and our return to the Jared Coffin House was a memorable one. The location is perfect-- near to everything yet off the beaten path. The ferry terminal is only a few blocks away, an easy walk even with luggage. The surrounding streets are filled with lovely shops... More

My girlfriend and I visited the Jared Coffin House in April. Room-wise, we found what someone should expect from a former historic home-turned hotel: a smallish (but perfectly clean and comfortable) room. That said, one visits Nantucket primarily to be "outdoors" at the beach, shopping, dining or investigating this beautiful former whaling port. As for our primary criticism: breakfast. While... More

Beautiful room, nicely decorated. Jared Coffin House is located just about 3 blocks from the ferry terminal, easily walkable unless you have heavy bags, then a $10 cab ride might be necessary. Convenient to downtown and they offer breakfast in the front dining room. Unfortunately we had an early meeting and could not enjoy breakfast there. For some reason the... More

Rooms and bathrooms are very small. However, they are very clean and that's what matters. Close to all our favorite restaurants and shops. Staff were not very friendly but were very helpful when you need something. Again, that's what matters. I wanted to love it but now very tempted to find other accommodations next time we visit Nantucket. Quite pleased... More

I've wanted to stay at the JC for years and finally had the opportunity recently. When you walk in, the lobby is beautiful and historically accurate. But the rest of the hotel has an identity crisis. The rooms for breakfast (i use that loosely; bagels, cold quiche, yogurt) and exercise room were 80s Miami with leopard print-like carpets and rattan... More

We arrived at the Jared Coffin House with high hopes but these were soon dashed as we entered the hotel. We were greeted by two members of staff who did not seem interested. The room (when we eventually found it) was small and uninviting with the loudest air-con machine I have ever heard. The whole place looks run down with... More

The "JC House" is an historical landmark for sure. Rooms in the annex, where I stayed were clean, current, and completely functional. The architecture of the hotel and it's surroundings are classic Nantucket and highly recommended. Strategically located just on the edge of the tourism district it is a short walk to everything a tourist would enjoy. The staff were... More

This is an old building and the rooms relate to that I just felt for the rate, it's a bit lacking. No robes, small rooms and very small baths. No elevator either. On the bright side, pleasant staff, great continental breakfast, great coffee cake and quiche although our first morning was missing some items and it felt a bit bare.... More

Ever since selling our house in Nantucket for close to 2 million dollars several years ago whenever we came back to Nantucket we stayed at the JC House.
