We stayed at the Nashua House, Room #3. It is one of the Ocean View rooms, and that aspect is the only negative. It is ocean view, but out of a window and across the rest of the balcony, so we ended up keeping the curtain closed on that window anyway, for privacy. Other than that, it is a great place to stay! Prices are great, the staff is very friendly and the place is kept incredibly clean and tidy.
Sharing bathrooms was never an issue because there are two on every floor. We also stayed after Labor Day, so this probably helped.
The hotel will keep your bags in the lobby until you are catching your ferry, so you don't need to lug them around after checking out.
It's also located less than a five minute walk from the beach, coffee shops, restaurants and great little stores.
I know some people have problems with the "noise level", but it's in an old, old building. You are going to hear the creaks of people on the stairs, but we couldn't hear people talking in other rooms or anything. If you don't mind ambient noise of life going on, then you'll be fine. We live in Boston and are used to the noises of other people, and it was a lot quieter than that, so consider that.
We'll be staying here again!
