Hotel Pippa was conveniently located close to the ferry and walking distance to downtown locations. The staff was friendly and helpful. I had a Queen room in the back building, which was clean, bright, and airy. There was a courtyard between the two buildings with tables and couches + gas heaters, where they did a happy hour in the evenings. Breakfast was provided each morning - the two mornings I was there, I was offered the choice of everything bagel with cream cheese, blueberry muffin, coffee cake, and yogurt parfait, as well as coffee, juice, and water. The room I had was adequate, although on the smaller side. It had a Queen bed and a chair, as well as night tables. The en-suite bathroom had a step up to enter, and the fixtures seemed a little dated. The room had robes and slippers, as well as many other toiletries.

Very nice spot and delicious breakfast. Samantha was so helpful. Right downtown and close to everything. Walking distance from ferry so you don't need a cab or uber. Will stay again most definitely. 👍

We had the most lovely time at Hotel Pippa! Pippa has wonderful modern decor and beautiful artwork. I have been to Nantucket many times over the years, and this was my favorite hotel stay. My boyfriend and I booked a queen suite for 5 nights in mid-July. The king size bed was very comfortable and the linens soft. The room had lovely white beachy minimalist decor and very cool photography. Spotlessly clean! It was mid summer and the AC kept us perfectly cool. The only downside was the bathroom was quite small. We were staying during COVID but we asked specially for housekeeping to clean each day and they made it happen. Great service! Carl the manager is wonderful and gave us all the best reservations for lunch and dinner and made sure we had a driver on call. Everything we asked was done quickly and they checked to make sure we were happy and having a great time. We loved the breakfast (and all the choices) each morning. The location is perfect, right in the middle of town, very convenient and a few beaches to walk to 10 minutes each way. I can't wait to stay at Hotel Pippa again and definitely recommend!

Great trip to Nantucket and Hotel Pippa made it welcoming, fun, safe and memorable. Room was perfect and super clean and bed was so comfortable. The staff was very friendly, warm, helpful and accomodating. The bar which had fun themed drinks and served free breakfast in the morning was a huge treat and made the trip special, fun and very convenient. We loved the hotel and will be staying again, hopefully soon!

From the moment we entered, this charming inn made us feel welcome. The modern decor with stunning photo artwork was perfect. The cozy outdoor area was perfect for a chilly Happy Hour with the gas heaters and fire pit. Lauren was our gracious host for our cocktails as well as serving us a nice breakfast the following morning. We love to travel and enjoyed finding this little gem so close to town.
