We only had one night in Nantucket on our visit between the islands, a lot of B&B's have a two night minimum. This was a good choice. Front desk staff was super gracious when we arrived early from the ferry, a very short walk away, offered to store our luggage so we could start seeing the town and called us when the room was ready (we were actually sitting with the concierge while she was helping with dinner some excellent dinner reservations and a last minute tour booking possibility). The room was clean and fairly basic, when they say small queen they really mean small so be ready for that. We weren't in the room much so not too much of a problem. It was great to have the courtesy driver who got us to Galley Beach and back for a wonderful dinner! Breakfast is real simple in the lobby but enough to get you started. The location was great sort of away from the very busiest part of town it seemed.

Ok place. Location good. Staff nice. Management not so. Breakfast basic. Room outdated and tiny. I didn’t get the room I thought I had ordered. (Single room vs single occupancy miscommunication). No big deal except they put me in a room so small that to describe it as a room overstates it. It had more in common with a cupboard. I explained the situation and that I needed a room with a desk and chair so I could do some work. I was told no problem there are other rooms available - great except - they would charge another $250 a night. Considering it was not clear the error was mine, that seemed extremely ungenerous. So I checked online and a room with a double bed (and desk) was available for $450. That was what I had paid when I had booked, just the day before. I asked to speak to the manager but was told they were not there. They called manager but they refused to speak with me, just the front desk manager. They did offer to reduce additional charge to $150 a night. I refused and asked to see the manager (also owner) when they returned on the morning. They said they would speak to me then. But they somehow forgot to. Awful customer care. It seems the hotel is more concerned with trying to squeeze guests financially than to be a gracious host. And if you do decide to stay at this hotel, definitely check the room you booked. You may end up in a cupboard!

We stayed here while we were in town for a wedding over Labor Day weekend 2019. It is a super convenient location and well priced compared to other nearby hotels. We had a king size room that was comfortable, private and quiet. Bathroom is small but the closet was huge and there are other mirrors in the room so doing make up and hair was easy. Free bottled water and cookies. Complimentary wine on the weekends. They even brought coffee to our room for no charge and wouldn't accept a tip. We will definitely stay here again.

Great location, good service, complimentary shuttle, comfortable rooms, breakfast was not great. I would stay there again. Although I love Nantucket , it was crazy ridiculously expensive so be prepared.

Dear Mcunni20, Thank you for your review. I am happy to hear that you found our service and location to be great and that you took advantage of our many complimentary services. We are also in the process of upgrading our complimentary breakfast, adding new items to our buffet and switching out all of our single-use plasticware with ceramic plates & bowls, silverware and glassware. We look forward to welcoming you back to Nantucket soon so that you can experience our new enhancements for yourself. Sincerely, Jason Curtis General Manager

We have been visiting the JC House for thirty years. It is beautiful, historic and right in the center of things. An easy walk to Main Street and all the activities and the waterfront. We stay at the Daniel Webster House as it is on the ground floor and convenient in and out during the day. Nothing much has changed in the last 30 years. The plumbing and the beds and all furniture are the same. It is clean, convenient and quiet. Breakfast in the main house is continental and the muffins are stupendous!...made by the baker on Center Street. My only concern is the price which is ridiculous but that’s Nantucket!
