We stayed three nights and could have stayed a week! 21 Broad is clean and stylish and chic! The bed was super comfortable, the breakfast delicious and healthy and the staff superb. The location was perfect, we walked and biked everywhere. We loved it and cannot wait to go back!

The owners of 21 Broad have taken a run-down, tired Victorian, and turned it into a modern oasis in the heart of Nantucket. The inn is well-appointed, the public areas are nicely done, and the rooms are quite comfortable. Breakfast is light but well done, and the staff are helpful and friendly. A great break from a traditional B&B.

I selected the hotel for its relatively fair rate among Nantucket hotels in high season, its excellent location and for its somewhat edgy modern look. Having stayed in many rentals and hotels over 35 years visiting the island, I had few expectations. But, while my room was fresh and the stay generally very pleasant, I was extremely disappointed in the... More

This was our first time on the island, we feel in love. 21 broad had a great little breakfast, with a welcoming atmosphere . We were pleased that it was just a "block away" from anything we wanted to do. ( location, location)! Staff always had good recommendation and we eager to please. The rooms were on the small size,...

We enjoyed our stay at 21 Broad. Location was perfect for dining, bike rental, boat trips and shopping. Room Nice size room with King size bed. Quiet even though we over looked the outside seating area. Beach chairs and towels available to all guests. Very useful! Staff was friendly but not a full service concierge. We would definitely return.

I have never reviewed any hotel I have ever stayed in but this one was too good to pass up a review. We came for a long weekend with friends and this was one of the best vacations I have had in a long time. The location is amazing, steps from shops and restaurants in the middle of town and... More

Excellent location, steps from the Wharf and the main restaurants. Rooms are spacious and airy giving the image of more space. Front Desk charming and good at little things like storing bags, calling for a taxi etc. Danny very capable in this regard. 'Free' breakfast is always nice with newspapers. On the w/e we were there, Owner was having a... More

We came for a long weekend and had a fabulous stay!! The location is ideal, close to the beach and smack in the middle of town. 21 BROAD: Adorable little hotel with beautiful finishes and great touches (the mixer bar in the afternoon, the breakfast and the homemade afternoon cookies). The room itself was very well appointed but TINY. My... More

So glad to hear you had a fabulous stay at our Nantucket boutique hotel. You're right, our location really can't be beat - we are so lucky to inhabit that prime spot! As such, and being a restored historic property, we are limited on space, as are many updated, unique accommodations on the island. We think of it as the... More

We had a great weekend stay here and have nothing but great things to say about this hotel. It is run by a husband and wife team and the pay attention to every little detail. This includes a great breakfast, fresh cookies every day, beach towels, chairs and bags, etc. We would definitely stay here again and have already recommended... More
