I had to go for a weekend to a wedding at Galley Beach. This was a perfect location. Plus it was only a short walk in to town. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. My room was very large and clean. The bathroom was spotless with the usual amenities. I think the towels were brand new. There is a... More

chocolattez, thank you for your nice comments about your recent stay at The Beachside. Our location is so convenient to many places on the island. We do offer complimentary fresh muffins and coffee each morning for our guests as a convenience in the event that they do not want to venture out to the many wonderful island restaurants for breakfast....

The hotel is everything you expect in a shore hotel. The esthetics are beachy, the hotel accommodates your needs by providing access to showers, towels and luggage holding rooms, before and after your stay! Big bonus to make the most of your stay!

The inn is located just a short stroll from the center of town. Our room was a Veranda Queen room - very clean, recently updated, with a very comfortable bed, sofa and nice shower/bath. The inn itself was very well taken care of and provided nice accommodations for about half the price of nearby b&b's. Good coffee all the time... More

Greg C., Glad to hear that you will be back to visit us at The Beachside! We do offer hot coffee in our lobby at all times. However, the town of Nantucket does not license our property, (and many others on the island, as well) to offer hot items for our guests. As you say, we do offer freshly baked... More

What a bargain. Simple but had everything we needed including a balcony overlooking the pool. Very retro architecturally but modern amenities including free reliable wi fi. The cranberry lemon muffins at the free breakfast were a dividend.

I used Expedia to book this motel and got a good deal, as it is still high season in Nantucket. The hotel has some years on it, but is updated and well maintained. Most importantly, it is clean. The staff is very friendly. There is vending with drinks and snacks, laundry, and even a microwave in the vending area. The... More

Location, location, location the inn is halfway from the Center of town and Jetties beach. There is nothing high end here but has all the amenities you will need. It may be one of the less expensive places to stay when on Nantucket.

Our usual spot in Nantucket was full so the Beachside seemed like a good alternative. The room was large with a pull out sofa area. Nothing fancy,but a nice choice. It's a bit dark walking back at night so use a phone flashlight to light the way. There is a pool and a breakfast, but we didn't avail ourselves to... More

We did not enjoy our stay. First of all, it was farther away from the ferry than stated. It is not a "short walk" -especially with luggage. The front desk staff was rude when we arrived. They were not helpful and and seemed put out with questions. The room was dirty. The doors are french doors and you could barely... More

Certainly not covered with sunscreen as you say, as they are washed daily with appropriate floor cleaner by our housekeeping staff.... More
