Can't beat the location halfway between town and Jetties Beach. Can walk from ferry and plenty of bike racks available. Rooms upgraded since my stay 8 years ago. Poolside room very convenient and quiet. Updated bathroom, cute bedding and comfortable beds. Price reasonable for Nantucket and included breakfast gives added value. Housekeeping missed our room one day but that was... More

I booked through Orbits, big mistake, should have booked with Beachside. I calked prior to arrival to make sure we had a poolside room and reassured by their staff. We got stuck in the back with car parked at the door. Motel atmosphere. We rented bikes and rack outside the room. The staff could have not been nicer. We were... More

sisdenise, thank you for taking the time to let us know of your recent stay. Although reservations may be made for our hotel, as well as many others, through third party reservation systems, there are times that the room types are not explained as clearly as when reservations are made directly with us. We are always happy to accomodate our... More

Beachside is a beautiful, well maintained property with convenient location. It is close to town and close to Jetties beach. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Reservations are flexible and easy to make.

Deb, Thank you for mentioning how beautiful and well maintained our property is. We work very hard to maintain our grounds, and especially at this time of year., our beautiful hydrangeas throughout the property are in full bloom and exquisite. The Beachside is conveniently located midway between nearby Jetties beach and downtown Nantucket, and both are a quick 12 minute... More

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.

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

The price was great considering the expense found at most places on the island.
