We stayed at the Barnacle Inn over Mothers Day weekend and had a wonderful time! Centrally located with all the amenities! Suzie and her staff were so accomodating and the breakfast was amazing! Hoping to visit again soon!

Our room was sunny with a nice view, clean and spacious. The location of the Inn is great, since it is downtown, everything is walking distance. We had breakfast on the patio, which was an amazing and relaxing experience! There is also coffee and tea at your service, as well as cookies and fruit, which is perfect for a little...

We are so glad you and your family enjoyed staying with us. Breakfast on the patio before walking to town is a great way to start your day. It was wonderful to meet you! Please come stay with us again .

Perfect downtown location, on one of the cutest streets of the island. Cozy, homey, clean rooms, cute interior. Very warm and welcoming place and friendly staff, always there to make your stay better. Breakfast is amazing, especially if you have it outside! There is coffee and tea in the lobby area, with fruit and delicious homemade cookies.

Nice rooms and service. When the owner overheard we were going to Children's Beach, some beach toys appeared on our door. Breakfast was a nice mild yogurt with fruit, some fruit, pastry and roll, strawberry juice, and coffee. There was no TV, but to me that is a good thing. I wouldn't have minded a king-sized bed however.

Many New England inns -- notable among them the Hanover Inn on the Dartmouth campus, the Lord Jeff on the Amherst campus, the Deerfield Inn on the Deerfield campus -- have gone upscale with "spa-like amenities" and the like, leeching out any trace of regional charm or hint of history. You might as well be, well, anywhere. So it is...

Thank you for taking the time to send us your feedback from your stay. As a small Inn we work hard to give our guests a great experience so we love to hear from everyone. We keep our rates much lower than most of other Inns on the island. Not much of spa- like amenities here- although we will do...

This was our first visit to the Barnacle Inn having been "priced out" of our usual inn. The Barnacle Inn is convenient to the downtown although a bit of a walk from the Steamship Authority dock. It's on a quiet side street, i e, no noisy cobblestones, and set back from the road with a comfortable yard for relaxing in...

So glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We do try to make it as comfortable and clean as possible. The Barnacle Inn lends itself to people able to meet others and yet is quite spacious. Hope to see you in the future. ~

Having roots in Nantucket going back centuries, it's a vacation homecoming of sorts to come back to the Barnacle Inn after Labor Day each year (Over the years my family has stayed in many fine Nantucket inns and hotels-The Barnacle is our favorite-hands down).. A cousin told me, years ago, that our beloved great aunt loves to stay there; I...

Great location is about all I'd give the Barnacle. Tired bedding, dirty bathroom and a serious need of updating is needed. I enjoy quaint but this was old and tired on all fronts. I was excited about reviews online. Never met or saw the inn keepers during my three day (two night) stay. My girls weekend turned into lots of...
