“Perfect getaway”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

This is a fabulous Inn where my husband and I visited for a last-minute getaway for one overnight in July. Having never been to the island, we had no idea where to stay and stumbled onto their website which showcased the lovely spot. The inn is so beautiful, quaint and conveniently located. Nice touches such as the bottle opener in the room, coffee & sweets service each afternoon, to the most friendly and helpful staff. We loved every minute of our stay on the island and cannot wait to return soon. No need to stay anywhere else....

On our first visit to Nantucket, we did a lot of research to try and find the best place for a romantic weekend. The Union Street Inn not only exceeded them, but went instantly to the top of our list of best inns ever. The owners, who were on duty due the marriage the day before of the managers, provided full service support and background info including researching and making reservations based on our thoughts for the day. The room (s we checked out others besides ours) were beautifully decorated, with best quality linens and toiletries. Food was a strong point as they serve a rotation of four full breakfasts (pancakes, eggs benedict, french toast, and omlettes) each with an alternative of yogurt and granola OR smoked salmon bagel. All wonderfully presented. Coffee and teas available 24x7 and a beautiful afternoon tea with fresh carrot cake, brownies and cookies. Location was near the heart of town and parking available at the Inn. Of course it helps being in Nantucket where the history and current experience are enough to captivate you for days. Did I mention the library of relevant books that offered a window into that history? We visited on a September weekend when there were reportedly 50 weddings going on in the town. They say August is busier...... Needless to say we'll be back. Christmas might be fun......

Very quaint and charming, love the rooms. Stay includes an incredible breakfast. Great location just off Main St. The couple that own the Inn are fantastic and very attentive from the moment you arrive. Just updated their patio and looks great. Wasn't able to eat outside on the patio due to the weather. Only place we stay while visiting Nantucket.

The inn has been totally redecorated since we were last here in 2010. It was great then and it is even better now. The innkeepers always make us feel so welcome and really tend to our needs making our experience on the island very memorable. Our room was luxurious and the daily breakfasts were fantastic! The property is spotless and made us feel good the minute we walked in the door. Couldn't ask for more!

Very hospitable and helpful hosts. Responsive, but not intrusive if you want to just read in peace. Wonderful breakfasts, best eggs benedict I have had in a very long time. It was so quiet we did not hear other guests talking in their rooms or downstairs, and street sounds were muted even tho we faced the street. Very convenient to the ferry and island buses, very nice beds. Malin+Goetz toiletries. Floorboards in our room sloped slightly and creaked gently. We were warned that the bath was small, and it was. It was also very pleasing as it was a well designed small space. However, it you are over 6 feet tall or rotund, you might find the space too small.

Room Tip: Ask for a downstairs room if you have difficulty with stairs.

Great location just off main street with charm and character. They have an outstanding staff able and willing to help you have a great time on the island. The bed and linens were so comfortable and luxurious. Breakfast was great but I must go back to experience the special french toast travelers spoke of. It was a nice touch to have wonderful treats and iced tea in the afternoon and bottled water and coffee available all day!

We stayed one night in room 8 with the detached bath down the hall but that worked just fine for us as no one else was able to use that bath except us. Place was very quiet even though they were fully booked and the room was as beautiful as it showed on their website. We booked last minute as they had a cancellation open up so we got a great rate. Location could not be beat! Steps to everything. And breakfast was a highlight - eggs benedict; and in the afternoon tea and cookies were available plus mini bottled waters for whenever you wanted which I thought was a nice touch. We'd definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Don't let room 8 with the detached bath deter you. It worked absolutely fine for us because you...
