“Best Value on the Island !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

A 150 year old guest house sits majestically on the bay with bars, food, and people watching on the street below. The weekend brings a host of yachts and boats which also give visitors a great people watching show. The rooms are tiny, the bathrooms are shared, but there is no doubt at the age of this giant house. Lots of history to be found on it in the foyer. Parking is horrible. We had to wait and wait for someone to leave the street-side so we could park to carry our large bags up the stairs to the house, then up more stairs to the room. No private parking. The noise level can be a bit out of control, but the people watching is amazing. Will definately stay here again. Dont expect much from the owners. They are quite in-congnito 95% of the time.

Room Tip: Any 3rd floor room toward the front of the house will give you the best views. Be prepared to climb...

Yes,it's a treasure of a place.
A bit sad the prices have gone up quite a bit even off season (still the best bargain on the island)!
In high season,the stampede above you (ie., if you're not on the top floor) is impressive.
Very nice,they now have a fridge in the lobby and some snacks as well.
Unfortunately,now,MV is doing well emulating the prices on Nantucket (eg., $30-40 for roast chicken).

I have stayed here twice so far. once on the third floor overlooking the donut shop and again last fall with friends visiting from Seattle Washington and one from Rhode Island. It was so much fun being right in the middle of everything. It is a block (small block, lol) from the main street with all the shopping. look to once side and see the ocean. I plan on staying here again in june 2014. The rates are really good and the rooms are really clean. Enjoy..

Room Tip: I'm not sure there are any bad rooms here. it all depends on what your looking for. most have do...

This building is approx 150 years old. We stayed late April - low season. Beautiful compact rooms. Pretty touches made it feel really special. Both the rooms & the bathrooms (shared) were spotlessly clean. As we were staying low season there were very few guests so noise from other rooms was not an issue. I would imagine that in the busy season that it could be quite loud. Particularly given its location which is right across from a busy restaurant & bar. I have to stress- this was an excellent location & super rates. Best we could find on the island.

We had such an amazing time on our vacation and the Nashua House (as our last hotel) did not disappoint. We had such a beautiful room with a wonderful view of the ocean. It was nice to wake up to see the ocean...even though it was snowing the morning we departed! Thank you to the lovely owners. We had a terrific time and will certainly stay again.

I stay here several times a year and the staff is always pleasant, the hotel is impressively cleaned. Quaint and comfy and you will not find a better price anywhere on the island. I love being so close the everything that I can easily walk anyplace I want to be.

We stayed here last June. Let me start by saying June is beautiful on Marthas Vineyard because it's usually slightly less crowded and room rates are mostly still lower than the summer months. Nashua house is located right in downtown oak bluffs which means you can walk to everything very quickly including the bus. We loved the friendly staff at Nashua House, everything was incredibly clean and charming, and even though we shared a bathroom we had no issues. After renovations they now have rooms with private baths and also rooms with balcony access. We'll be back this June to enjoy some Mocha Motts on the porch. Can't wait!
