I came to Nantucket in September, the weekend after Labor Day, with my boyfriend for a weekend getaway. We had an awesome stay at The Beachside - I will recommend this to anyone traveling to Nantucket and I will stay there again when I return.

So nice to hear from you regarding your enjoyable stay at the Beachside! Your recommendation about using bikes when on Nantucket will be so helpful to others, as it will give others the opportunities to see the beautiful island of Nantucket in a much better way. There are beautiful bike paths throughout the island, and of course we will do... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at the Beachside. As you said, our continental breakfast is ample enough so that a trip downtown, which is only a 12 minute walk, may not be necessary. We hope that you will come back and visit us again in the near future! Karen Keelan, Owner., The Beachside More

I stayed at the Beachside on the second week of August 2013 for the first time. The atmosphere was very relaxing and peacefully. The free continental breakfast with a lot of choices(fruits, bread, bagels, croissants, muffins, cereals, yogurts, juices, coffee and few others) before 10am were fantastic!!! The room was so clean and comfortable. To my surprise the room has... More

We stayed here the first weekend of August. It was clean, well kept and the staff was very nice. It's a nice family place, although we weren't there with kids. Nice clean pool as well. Not too far from town either. Not fancy by Nantucket standards but if you're just looking for a room to sleep and shower it fits... More

We arrived on Friday in the pouring rain and felt welcomed the moment we arrived. Traveling with a young child while also traveling for work is challenging.

While close to historic downtown Nantucket with large rooms and ample parking, this relatively family-friendly motel is just that, a full service motel. At $400/night peak season, it is expensive for what you get, even for Nantucket. Never enough bath towels in the room despite number of registered guests and multiple calls. A request for a noon checkout instead of... More
