I had a wonderful stay at the Beachside early July with my husband. This is the best deal in Nantucket. The room was recently given a face lift and it had a lovely patio to enjoy the sun and outside. There is a pool and open space with green grass to enjoy along with beautiful hydrangeas lining the pool fence.... More

We were on a family road trip and decided to go to Nantucket for just one night. We picked a great motel! We were first quite disappointed that it was not located on the beach as you would think with the name and all the pics on their website but once we settled in and realized how close to town... More

This was our 7th time at the Beachside, having visited regularly over the years for short weekend trips. Our room ( cliff side, no view) seemed less well kept and clean than on prior visits. It seems no updates have been done over the past couple of years. Not sure we'll be back.

DrapJ005, I am sorry that I was not made aware of your disappointment during your actual stay with us, because I would have been able to investigate the circumstances thoroughly at that time. I'm not quite sure when you last stayed with us before your most recent trip, but each year, we address various changes and improvements that need to... More

Brewi0621., We appreciate your comments about your recent visit to the Beachside. Although we are only a twelve minute walk from one of the ferries., we are more than happy to pick up or drop off guests when they need a ride. We will certainly make it known in better ways than we have, so thank you for the reminder!... More

Every summer for the last 8 years my wife, son and I have gotten together on Martha's Vineyard for a family vacation with her two sisters and their families, 11 people in all.

I have been coming to Nantucket since I was a child and have stayed in many different inns /hotels. In July we came to the island with our 3 kids and 7 other families. Most of us stayed at the Beachside and it was perfect! Chose a room on the first floor facing the pool. There is a lawn area... More

Great stay at The Beachside.....after reading some reviews I was nervous but I am still having trouble understanding the complaints. The price was great considering the expense found at most places on the island. The location is perfect since you are halfway between beautiful Jetties beach and town....prepare to walk but Nantucket is beautiful so it's hard to complain. The... More

The hotel is in an great location if do not mind bit of a walk. It is located halfway between downtown and Jetties beach. It is about half a mile give or take to the beach and downtown in opposite directions. The rooms are clean, a bit small but nice. Only issue was the bathroom which required the window to... More

This is my third time staying at the Beachside and I absolutely love this hotel. I felt very welcomed at check-in. The front desk staff is all very accommodating and helpful. The room was nicely done and very clean and comfortable. Perfect walking distance to town, shopping, the beach etc.

The location of this motel is nice; a walk (not short) to a beautiful beach. It is a long walk to town, so a cab is recommended if you have suitcases. A few really nice restaurants are not too far. It is in a residential area, lots of very lovely and exceptionally lovely homes to see on a walk. I... More
