I really do not like to be a person who gives negative reviews so normally I would not say anything however, I feel compelled to let others know. That being said there are a few positives to mention: The staff at check in was professional and friendly. Also the girls in housekeeping are very friendly and accommodating. The continental breakfast was nice with bagels, pastries, cereal, coffee and juice and very nicely attended to by the staff.
The bed and linens are extremely old and the mattress is horrible. I did leave a note for the bed to be laundered as the bed spread, blanket and sheets did not seem clean and this was done for us. The bathrooms are very, very old and show severe wear and tear on the shower, walls, door, severe cracks…etc…. The room itself is very stuffy and does have a bit of a musty smell but thankfully you can open a window since the air conditioner does not work right. It runs all the time and never seems to climate the room. Half of the TV channels have no sound and the power button does not work properly. I could go on and on …. NO, I did not report all of this to the front desk. I feel that all of these things should have been fixed or upgraded years ago. I realize this is Nantucket and the rates are much different here. I would have stayed elsewhere but there was not much to choose from. My mistake was not booking this trip with more advance notice because yes, I would have paid more to stay elsewhere and that it what I suggest to others unless there are significant upgrades made.
