In September we traveled to Nantucket with two other couples and were delighted in our choice of accommodation. Ship’s Inn was a cozy haven in close proximity to all places and activities on the island. Our hosts were warm, knowledgeable and made our stay memorable. Added bonus that was a wonderful surprise-the incredible dinner we enjoyed at Ship’s Inn’s restaurant on our last night. We’d love to return and heartily recommend Ship’s Inn!
Once more a perfect stay at the Ship's Inn! This inn is a delight. The location is perfect, close to shops, restaurants, and just a few blocks from the waterfront. I cannot say enough about innkeeper Mary Lou's responsiveness to any request. The cozy salon is a warm gathering place to meet other guests. Breakfast is yummy. The restaurant is truly outstanding. Dinner our last night was a special finale to a wonderful visit. Don't forget to order the soufflé!
Our three night stay at the Ships Inn was a wonderful stay. Our room, Ranger, was on the first floor near the rear of the inn. It had a very comfortable Queen bed, 2 chairs, tv, fireplace and great lighting. The sink right inside the door was a bit of a surprise but it’s placement worked well when we were getting ready. The bathroom was a big tired but the water was hot and the toiletries plentiful. We did not experience the noise others complained about from the street or the nearby church. Breakfast was terrific with both hot and cold items, baked goods, fruit etc. Public areas were beautiful and inviting and had afternoon cookies! There is a restaurant in the Inn which we did not visit but it seemed enjoyed by those Elwood did. The manager,Mary lou, was friendly and helpful. Compared to other hotels in the world the Ships Inn is expensive but priced averagely for Nantucket and I would choose to stay there again without hesitation!…
The Ships Inn is an excellent place to stay on Nantucket because of everything it offers. The proximity to the downtown shopping/restaurant district and harbor is only about a quick 2-minute walk. Also, the food offered at breakfast and the dinner that is served is delicious. Definitely make reservations to eat at Ships Inn some night for dinner - there is also a full bar in addition to the restaurant and dining room. There are always brownies/cookies and lemonade/iced tea out in the afternoon when returning from the beach. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. The showers are small - but I weigh 250 - they are adequate. They also offer beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas to guests - as well as space for your rented bikes/scooters.
Lovely rooms and super staff make your stay on Nantucket perfect. Best location for both access to town and quiet nights. Listen to the church bells across the street while enjoying a sumptuous breakfast buffet.
