We stayed at the Ships Inn for 3 nights. Mary Lou, the Innkeeper, helped us with our booking prior to our arrival and we were happy to meet her when she greeted us at the door. She is very extremely helpful and patient in recommending us places to eat and visit. The Inn has a long history where it was once a residence of a very famous whaling boat captain. The rooms are charming and decorated in different themes. Most things are functional considering the age of the house (and the location of nantucket island). The only odd thing was that our wash basin is outside of the bathroom.
We were very happy with the location of the Inn, it was literally 1 minute away from the main street. The restaurant in the basement served up some solid new england fare. All in all we have a very good experience at the Ships Inn.
