Having been to many B+B and inns on Nantucket we found Martin House Inn a place we are going to come back to! Not because of the little repairs that are needed for a over 200 year old inn , not because of a little touch up paint inside and out, that is needed for the real fussy, not for... More

Stayed 2 nights at the Martin House. Got to interact with other people and, of course, with Lisa, our "hostess" and manager. She told us places to go, a bit of history about Nantucket. For the short time she managed the place, she knew quite a bit. Room was originally #1 which was about 3x the size of our room,... More

Disappointing stay at the Martin House in room 2. Very dark, just one window which couldn't open as it had a/c unit in it. With no other way to get air had to use the a/c which blew directly on the bed. Sink in the bathroom is literally the size of a shoebox and there is no mirror or place... More

The Martin House Inn was in a great location, walking distance to the ferry, the downtown area, etc. The place was very cute and tidy, but the only downside with staying there was the poor hospitality I felt by the Innkeeper. I felt she wasn't friendly/ welcoming, she couldn't find our reservation, the WIFI kept breaking, the AC was very... More

Stayed last week in August by myself. Only place I found on the island that had single rooms & was affordable. My experience was fantastic. Lisa works non-stop to attend to so many, many people, yet went out of her way to make sure I never felt alone (not that she even had to...). She gave me a bottle of... More

Stayed here for the Labor Day weekend with my two friends. As a travel agent, I prefer hotels but gave this place a shot due to the price and reviews. Stayed in a room with a shared bathroom, which was ok, but the bathroom was missed on cleaning the 2nd day, so no toilet paper and kind of dirty after... More

A little late review, but this place is simply awesome! Me and my girlfriend went here 6/1 for just the weekend (right before the busy season started) and had a wonderful time here. Service was just excellent, from the whole booking process (thank you Trish!) to the B&B staff. Lisa was very helpful and made great cookies and scones. Great... More

the housekeeping service was inconsistent but the room was always clean... the electricity was spotty - half the inn didn't have electrical power and the following 2 nights our bedside lamps blew a fuse, didn't work all night and the next day the air conditioner lost power and we needed a power cord/surge protector to help ... kudos to the...

When I arrived on Nantucket Island by ferry it was raining. Waiting for a taxi with other arrivals I was told that on a rainy day the wait for a taxi could be as long as two hours. I immediately called the Inn Keeper at The Martin House where I would be staying for my vacation: a taxi arrived within... More

We went here for a birthday get-away and it was perfect. The room was spacious and airy. Bed was comfortable; the manager was very helpful; breakfast was simple - cereal, yogurt, fruit and breads, but very good. Living room and porch nice place to sit and relax in the afternoon. Refrigerator is available for guests needs. Felt homey and very... More
