My mom and I have stayed at the Brass Lantern twice now and both experiences were very positive. They provide an excellent continental breakfast in the am, and they're beds are quite comfortable! Both Michelle and Scott take the time to offer suggestions of what to do on the island, and they're common spaces are open and friendly. I can't... More

Talk about doing the right thing. I had to write a quick review about my exceptional experience with the service at the Brass Lantern Inn. My wife and I had decided to attend our first Christmas Stroll on Nantucket when my mother took ill and needed an emergency surgery (she is doing well now). With less than 2 days notice... More

I did not know the details of what compelled you to cancel your reservation for Stroll, and I am very glad to hear that your mother is doing well! Thank you for your very positive review about a potential very unfortunate situation when there is a late cancellation. We know that, sometimes, life just gets in the way of the... More

Poor attitude. Very unpleasant people. Tried to get to the Inn after visiting friends on Marthas Vineyard, but ferry to Nantucket broke down. We were told it would be 1-2 weeks to repair. We tried to make a plane reservation, but they were sold out. Brass Lantern kept our full payment of close to $700.00. We are seniors and have... More

It is very unfortunate that this reviewer experienced the worst case scenario of travel to the Island of Nantucket – I remember it well because I tried every avenue to help them find another way to get to Nantucket and to re-book their room nights when they didn’t get to Nantucket. I understand Doreen B’s frustration with this unfortunate situation,... More

I had to travel to the Island for work, my wife came along with our two dogs. From the time we reserved the room to the moment we arrived Michelle and Angelique (sp?) were so accomodating and sweet. The Inn is very well situated within a five minute walk to either Main Street and the SSA. The rooms are impeccably... More

You won't find a friendlier place on the whole island. They are welcoming; you feel like you never left home. Breakfast was different everyday and we at like royalty. Oh and their coffee is awesome. I am and will continue to be a repeat customer.

We stayed at the Brass Lantern as part of a Veteran's Day free stay promotion. We couldn't have been more pleased. We were welcomed upon arrival and our room was ready ahead of schedule. The room was clean and had everything that we needed. The sheets on the bed were amazing! Plenty of options for breakfast and a Keurig available... More

Brass lantern inn is our go to hotel when staying on Nantucket and you don't want the hassle of renting a house for an entire week. They offer a complimentary breakfast and all the amenities of a house in the middle of town. Great value for the money.

Nantucket is a remarkable island with the harbor area and downtown much the same as it was in its whaling heyday with cobblestone streets, brick sidewalks and all the buildings circa 1850 and older. The Brass Lantern is a former whaling captain's home on a street lined with similar homes and hotels -- much like the entire downtown area. Brass... More
