This hotel has been redone since I visited 10 years ago, but it is all cosmetic and does not warrant the price of $400/night. It has a pool and continental breakfast, but it is actually a motel with open hallways. For someone who took the ferry and did not have a car, the motel convenience of being near a car... More

CASunshine363, The Beachside, due to its' central location, beautiful pool, convenience and affordability, is a very family-friendly property and we understand that it may not be for everyone. We offer a free continential breakfast each morning as a convenience so that if people choose to not leave the hotel, and just lounge by the pool, it is perfect. Most of... More

We can not say enough good things about The Beachside in Nantucket. The updated rooms are lovely. The staff go above and beyond. They even fixed our beach wonder wheeler! Jackie Smith and Carissa are two of the staff we knew by name and they are so professional and friendly- made our stay extra special. The pool is well kept... More

For the price we paid per night (over $400), we would have expected a little more, but I guess that's just Nantucket high season for you... When we walked into the room, the floor was damp. We thought it was because perhaps it was just cleaned, but unfortunately, there was a damp feeling to the room throughout the stay. We... More

Alilu007, I am a bit puzzled by your recent review of the Beachside as there are a few things just didn't make sense to us...There is a bike rental area right outside of our front door that offers daily or weekly bike rentals for a small fee, so I'm not quite sure why you did not see the bikes for...

Friendly staff and clean comfortable rooms. It's close to Town and ferries . Short walk to beaches and playgrounds. Great pool for the kids and adults along with a delicious breakfast included. Excellent choice for families and couples. I stayed with my family several times . Pet friendly and free DVD movies.

I'm always hesitant when booking hotels that accept pets, even though I have a beautiful clean and loving yellow lab that I love to take with us everywhere. This place is centrally located, easy to find, and most importantly ... clean! The check in process was just okay ... the front desk clerk seemed bothered to have to check us... More

Warning: this place books early! We snagged some of the last rooms when reserving three months ahead. This hotel is ideal for its easy walking distance (and lovely views) to town as well as the Great Point Lighthouse, beaches, and lovely neighborhood. It features a fenced-in pool with lifeguard, lawn, decent foyer with computers and poolside veranda rooms. Rent-a-jeeps appeared... More

This is a motel. It is not upscale, but it is fine. The people are great. It is near town and near the beach with a nice pool. I would definitely stay here again. Easy walk to the lighthouse beach. Moderate walk from the ferry landings. Very considerate staff.
