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 I was barley able to turn around in the shower and the bathroom looked outdated.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!

Sadly, we never actually got to stay at the Jared Coffin House. We were to check in today (May 13) and leave Sunday but unfortunately, my friends husband suffered a heart attack and everything was/is up in the air. Unsure what to do, I called the JCH and am so beyond happy with their understanding of our situation. They could not have been more thoughtful or gracious. We were thankfully able to get a full refund (we had proof of situation if need be) which was not something we were expecting! We visit Nantucket often, and often try out new resorts and inns but we will 100% make sure we book our return visit with JCH simply based on the thoughtfulness we received from JCH (I believe I spoke with an Addy/Adi?). During this tough and still unfolding situation it was an unbelievable weight off our shoulders! Thank you, thank you! Hope to be back to give the JCH a try very soon!!! Thank you, endlessly for your kindness!
