“Wonderful, Relaxing Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2009

We just returned from a 3-night stay at the Union Street Inn. In a nutshell, the inn was wonderful--pristine, charming room; stellar service; and great location. If you book here, you are in good hands! The breakfast on the patio was excellent too. Inn owners, Deb and Ken, as well as their team, were terrific--making dinner reservations in advance and handling every request with great grace. You will love it here!

The Union Street Inn is outstanding in every way. It absolutely deserves the great press on trip advisor. Last fall, I spent the night before my wedding there, and my husband and I stayed another week for our honeymoon. We chose Union Street after having done extensive in-person and online research into B&B and hotel options on the island and talking with our family members who are permanent residents there.

The inn is beautifully decorated and centrally located to all that town has to offer. The owners, Ken and Deb, are extremely accommodating, professional, and gracious. It is evident that they have paid careful attention to every detail of the inn and that it and the staff are very well managed. Daily breakfast on the quiet, leafy patio was pure luxury and was marked by their trademark unobtrusively attentive service. We certainly had our share of the wonderful afternoon cookies, too.

Before your arrival, the hosts will make restaurant recommendations and reservations for you (with a written summary in your room), and they provide information about island activities each day. Our room was well appointed, comfortable, quiet, and sunny.

Without exaggerating, every aspect of our stay was flawless.

I live on Nantucket and booked a room at the Union Street Inn for overflow family. I found this B&B on the web, liked their website, so I figured I'd take a chance and book a room. Plus, the price was very reasonable. I've passed this B&B everyday for years but never paid much attention until I yesterday. What a great spot, and a great place! The location is absolutely perfect - within a block is the ferry, Main Street, tons of restaurants, a supermarket, bike shops, everything. And the room was beautiful. The person who checked my in-laws in wanted to alert us to the narrow bathroom but it didn't strike us a particularly narrow. The in-laws had a solid night of sleep, then a full breakfast with fresh muffins, fruit, french toast, you name it. They couldn't say enough good things about their stay. This is the kind of place you hope to get when booking online sight unseen -it's a gem, no kidding.

Rooms were great at the Union Street Inn. All too often, I find rooms at inns too frilly, lacy, flowery, feminine. The Union Street Inn was none of that. The decor and linens were thoughtfully chosen and very appealing to the eye. Of all the small inns in which I have stayed, I would say this was one of the best with respect to the decor. The bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was well lit, with nice fixtures and bath products (by Fresh). The breakfast was excellent. From my understanding, it is one of the few inns that will serve breakfast, rather than provide it via buffet-style. The outdoor patio is great, too.

Ken was an excellent host. Very polite and personable. I did not get a chance to meet his wife/co-host.

Location is fantastic. It is perhaps one of the closest inns to Main St. and the ferries.

I find the appeal of inns in old, historic buildings. However, for some, that might be considered a negative. At the Union Street Inn, expect some slanted floors, low ceilings, and small bathrooms. Although I found the inn to be very quiet inside and out, one is still able to hear some noises from hallways and common areas. Finally, some may find the rates in the summer a bit pricy. It is probably one of the more expensive inns on the island.

Just spent a weekend at the Union Street in over Nantucket's Christmas Stroll. The breakfasts were great, and the inn keepers did as much as possible to help us with our trip. Ryan even booked us a table for dinner before their 30 day policy. I'd recommend the Union Street inn to anyone going to nantucket and looking for a B&B

Trust the reviews on TripAdvisor-- Union Street Inn is outstanding! We had a beautiful room (#3) and enjoyed delicious breakfasts. The inn is a short walk from the ferry and the best restaurants and shops in Nantucket. Ken and his team provide wonderful service.

Thanks to Ken, Deb, Ryan and Caroline.

So the room tilted a degree or two downhill from the windows to the bath.... Made it all the more authentic as an old but beautifully restored Nantucket gem. I'd mention the room number but I want to keep it a secret so I get to reserve it again for next year. Suffice to say the king bed was a treasure and the shower perfect.

And seven straight days of sun? Who knew?

So, what made it not perfect? Ever hear of a souffle made with salt instead of sugar? Try the "21 Federal" restaurant if you dare.
