This was our second trip to Nantucket and second stay at The Beachside. If you are expecting elegance or upscale rooms, don't stay at The Beachside. If you would like a reasonably priced average room, you will like this hotel. Its within walking distance of the Harbor, town, one of the beaches and is very family and dog friendly. The... More

Donna T, thank you for your recent review of your stay at the Beachside. You are correct, The Beachside is not, nor has ever tried to portray ourselves as a "Five Star" luxurious hotel. We are a clean, comfortable, family-and-four-legged-friends friendly hotel on the beautiful island of Nantucket that is affordable for those not looking to spend many hundreds of... More

Stayed here for one evening and arrived around 7:30 pm. The lady at the front desk was pleasant and very helpful. The room was decent however in my bathroom I did not have wash clothes. I also didn't have a laundry bag in the closet. I went downstairs to use the mircowave I saw at the desk but the lobby... More

Qtess, thank you for letting us know of your recent stay. During some weeknights as we get into the Fall season, our lobby does close earlier than 11 pm, but we do staff a 24 hour phone number which is given to all guests checking in, as well as printed on your keycard and other printed material throughout the property....

GeorginaW, I am disturbed in reading your review of your recent stay at the Beachside. I checked the daily log sheet, we we try to solve any issues immediately, but could not find any record of the issues that you mentioned in your review. Certainly, we would have addressed the dampness issue and would have moved you to another room... More

We loved this place!!! Where do you find this location AND a beautiful pool in Nantucket for a reasonable price. Incredible location; short walk into town. Updated room poolside with a patio overlooking the pool; thought we had died and gone to heaven! Breakfast basic but adequate; lemon cranberry muffins to die for. What a wonderful time we had on...

We stayed here at the end of July. Our room was in back, which was not bad, but the atmosphere is much nicer around the pool. Our room was average and a bit damp. I notified the front desk about the problem and they tried to help solve it, but couldn't figure out the problem. The staff in general was... More

Lyalya, We always appreciate it when guests take the time to let others know of their stay at the Beachside, so thank you! Your room was in our Cliffside section, which although near the pool, does not immediately surround it, as the more expensive Poolside Rooms do. Being on an island, it is never easy to address the humidity that... More

Okay. Have stayed here twice-both times w young kids and parents that want to eat at the best the island has to offer and sightsee. Best location for the price-bar none. But I have stayed in far nicer everywhere in the US for $300-plus per night. It's Nantucket folks. Pros are a decent pool-green grassy areas for the kids to... More

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
