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

Jen C, After looking at your reservation, I could not find any record of any issues reported by you during your recent stay. Your room was a Pet-friendly Queen room in the Cliffside section, which does have wooden floors. Certainly not covered with sunscreen as you say, as they are washed daily with appropriate floor cleaner by our housekeeping staff.... More

My husband, our toddler, and I just returned from a terrific 5 night stay at The Beachside. This was our second stay as a family, but we have also stayed just the two of us, and I have also been a few times with my girlfriends.

Upon our arrival in AUGUST 2002, we knew we had found the perfect place for our annual Nantucket vacations. The welcome greetings are warm and sincere. In July there were many noticeable up-grades - newly decorated lobby and breakfast room. Rooms are exceptionally clean, bathrooms supplied with quality linens and attractive bed ensembles. It is quite obvious of the professional... More

I am giving one star only because the room was clean, other than that nothing to brag about. As soon as we arrived we explained that there was an error in the reservation in the sense that we were 3 not 2 people. We contacted Expedia and they informed that the hotel had refused to accept the mistake. In fact,... More

RunnCreek, the room rates on any of our room types are based on two people per room and there is always a charge for a third person, no matter if you book through Expedia or directly with the Beachside. Most lodging establishments have this policy, especially on the island of Nantucket. Your claim that Expedia said that we refused to... More

Recently stayed here with my wife and we could not have been happier with the choice. Very unpretentious little motel with well kept grounds, nice outdoor pool area, and a nice daily continental breakfast. The location allows you a ten minute walk to the beach one way and a ten minute walk to town the other. The staff is accomodating,... More

The Beachside is a llittle gem right near the center of Nantucket. It is a motel and as such is reasonably priced but the rooms are well-appointed and the staff is solicitous. It is easy to walk to town and bikes are available at the hotel for rental. It is immaculately clean and has great satellite TV. Breakfast is continental... More
