We had a wonderful time at the Jared Coffin House. Beautiful, clean, historic and perfectly located, there’s no need for a car, everything is right around the corner. We stayed in the Daniel Webber (?) section, not the main house, but still it was a lovely stay. Great customer service. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Nantucket. Best beds I’ve ever slept in! So comfortable!
I haven't been to Nantucket since my childhood- Made a date with my wife for our anniversary back on Memorial Weekend- storm washed that out- rain date was this last weekend- What a lovely Inn- the room was perfect- record player was a nice touch- clean and comfortable. Well appointed. Nice little continental breakfast offering in the morning although so much in Nantucket that we only had coffee before we hit the town. Would most certainly stay there again.
The Jared Coffin was a perfect place for us. The room we had was large and well appointed. Some of the features in the room need updating, but if you keep in mind it's a more like a bed & breakfast location you should get over the minor things. The best part of the stay was all the amenities we didn't know about. They had bikes, beach towels and chairs for us to use. They offered good coffee and a continental breakfast in the mornings. The staff would drive you to any location you needed if you needed a lift. It was just an outstanding stay in a very nice place.
The inn is very well maintained. The history and the coziness are very welcoming. The The staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant and bar were great. The location is fantastic. I strongly recommend staying here. We will definitely stay here again.
Disappointed Not at all as it was presented in the pictures. We were so looking forward to the allure that was presented in the website description. An elegant, beautiful and historic inn, the first mansion on the island! With all due respect, this historic property needs a touch up and the historical commission needs to take note. Pro’s: - Location and proximity to town, shops, restaurants. - Complimentary continental breakfast each morning. - Bicycles and beach towels available to guests. - Complimentary parking. This is a pro and a con since although complimentary, there are not enough spots to accommodate all guests. With respect, we recognize that since this is a historical property, surrounding real estate is limited. However, guests are instructed to “block-in” other cars and leave keys at front desk so that staff can shuffle cars as necessary. Con’s: - Beautiful historic home but sadly in disrepair - No elevator - Cleanliness in question - Interior noise level high due to age of the building. - Parking: as mentioned above, there are not enough spots to accommodate all guests. Guests are instructed to “block-in” other cars and leave keys so that staff can shuffle cars as necessary. - On-site restaurant “Tap Room” was advertised as being available 7 days/week however when we were there we were advised that they would be closed M/Tu despite the on-site sign saying that they’d be open. Our experience: - Disappointing. - Window treatments in our room were wooden shutters. These shutters had no handles therefore making opening and shutting them to be a challenge. - Our east facing window had a window air conditioner unit in bottom half. This did not allow us to shut those wooden window shutters and therefore not allowing for privacy from the street nor shading from the early morning sun. - Our bathroom door was not able to close. There appeared to be some previous jury-rigging with some wooden blocks which prevented it from shutting. - While we understand COVID and it’s staffing impacts, we were disappointed to see the same dirt and fragments on the carpeted interior stairs and hallways during our four day stay there. - We arrived two hours prior to the stated 3p check-in. Decided to see if our room was ready and if not, no problem. The front desk staff said that our room was not ready but being cleaned now and they would call us as soon as it was ready. We altered our plans accordingly, staying nearby since our room was being cleaned, as told. Two hours later, per the front desk, our room was still being cleaned and “being inspected now”. Very frustrating. We lost coveted vacation time, after all. Overall, we were so looking forward to the elegance of staying here but the experience did not prove to this. This establishment might carry a status name but there are too many other Inns in the local area that an give the same/better experience.…
We had a wonderful stay at the JC! We found the rooms to be well-appointed and the staff was attentive and helpful. It's such a nice touch to have bikes, beach towels and beach chairs available for use. They also gave us a ride over to the ferry on the day we left. Highly recommend!!
As other reviewers have noted, this historic hotel venue is pricey but the location just on the edge of town is perfect for navigating on foot or bike to most “must see” spots on the island. The staff is most accommodating, going out of its way to assist guests with every need. We rented 2 separate rooms......one had a completely renovated bathroom while the other bath was sorely in need of some upgrades considering the price.
Nantucket is exclusive. I am well aware of it and want to be fair. This was the most we ever paid for a hotel night ($600) and we have been all over the world Tokyo, Bahamas, London, Paris etc. My expectations were met when it came to the friendliness of the staff. They offered bikes, beach chairs, courtesy shuttles and always a smile. The bed was comfortable and the hotel’s location was perfect. That is about it on my happy list. The hotel room was tiny and the bathroom even smaller. I was barley able to turn around in the shower and the bathroom looked outdated. The window A/C was loud, but even louder were the exhaust vents from their restaurant which were installed on the roof in front of our room (#306). They rattled and it felt like a NYC subway would be close by. I was also disappointed about the breakfast. They served individually packages bagels, cheap jam (that you would find in any old fashioned breakfast diner) and worst was that everything was served with plastic plates, paper cups and no table to sit on. They have an outside restaurant, why not serve breakfast there in summer time with dishes that can be washed instead of tossed?…
This is the worst hotel. I would never recommend this hotel. Location is great. That is it. We cannot even get more than 2 bottles of water a day without getting charged. The bathroom is AWFUL. The bathroom looks like Uber staying in a highway motel. The front desk staff has attitude. We paid $525 for our room. We should have paid $125. DO NOT stay here.
My friends and I could not be happier with our stay here. From the moment we were picked up at the fairy and checked in at front office, we were treated like VIPs. The staff was exactly what you would expect if one was a VIP. Our driver brought in our luggage, and to our rooms. The rest of the stay was engaging and exceptional and they always remembered our names (even if they hadn’t seen us in a day or so). That deserves kudo’s! The rooms were exactly as pictured. Mine was truly beautiful and reminiscent of a room in a Captains house with some minor 21st century upgrades. I had everything needed to make this short time memorable. The breakfast mornings were filled with fresh muffins, cereals (hot and cold), bagels, and assortment of teas, coffees and juices. They also included snacks to take on your daily journey! I rate this a 5 star because that is what they deserve. We had no complaints and were throughly pleased and happy with our stay. They even let us keep the rental car in their lot upon checkout until the car agency picked it up. I definitely suggest making this one of your “home away from home” while visiting Nantucket. No, this wasn’t a paid review or posted by staff. I’m lucky to have stayed in many B&B’s in this town and this is by far is at the top of list. I will be staying again!…
