Nashua House Hotel

Reviewed August 5, 2010

I had a pleasant stay at the Nashua House for 2 nights at the end of May 2010. It is in an old Victorian building right smack in the middle of downtown Oak Bluffs, within walking distance to the ferry terminals and with many good eateries nearby. Rooms are well appointed and comfortable, though they may be a little on the small side, especially if you have a lot of luggage. Our room, 206, also didn't have a cabinet for clothes so we had to make do with the various hooks or drawers around the room.

Though the rooms didn't have private toilets, the public toilets are surprisingly very clean. I also liked that they provided Rusk shampoo, conditioner and soap bar, which didn't dry the skin.

Service could have been improved - the lady who checked us in on Day 1 was a little aloof but the duty manager on Day 2, Lory, was much friendlier. We even received a follow-up email from her to get feedback on our stay.

There was no breakfast provided but there were plenty of eateries in the area so it was not a major inconvenience.

Still, for the price, the Nashua House is a good place to stay in Oak Bluffs and worthy of a recommendation.

Conveniently located to everything in Oak Bluffs, including a beautiful historic post office and lovely ocean views. Nashua House is quaint, clean and comfortable. The owners surpass any traveler's expectations. They drove me to Vineyard Haven when I found that I had forgotten my Mac charger right before an important assignment was due! They readily share their extensive knowledge of the island and just all around provide first rate hospitality. I loved this place!

If you want a comfortable bed, clean rooms and most importantly a CLEAN bathroom this is the place. Each room has a unique theme some even have a sink in the room. I do have to mention for a small hotel that requires you to share bathrooms I am amazed of the cleanliness this hotel provides. The toiletries provided are of good quality they also provide make-up removal wet napkins to reduce the use of water making them an eco-friendly environment. The Hotel is in the heart of Oak Bluffs, just step out side from the front door you will have restaurants, stores, park and beach . Also the Steamship Authority is about 5 minutes away.

Great location, near the center of Oak Bluffs and walking distance to the ferry and the beach. They provided a secure bike locker in a nearby building, which was very handy! Although, someone "borrowed" one of the bikes for a few hours, so lock them up inside.

The rooms were pretty small, but you can book them individually on their website. There are shared bathrooms, and competing for them in the mornings was one of the only downsides.

Overall, a great stay.

We enjoyed our visit to Nashua House. We came during the height of the tourist season for a concert and had difficulty finding a reasonable place to stay. The rooms at the Nashua House are somewhat small and you have a shared bath.....not something we would consider ideal when choosing a hotel, however, it turns out we were very pleased with our stay. The staff on duty were very gracious and welcoming...the rooms were very clean and pleasant....the bathroom spotless with updated accommodations and finally, the price was reasonable. All in all, our visit was very pleasant and we would definitely consider staying here again.

The location is wonderful in Oak Bluffs. Across the street from a brew pub/restaurant, 1 block to the water, and 1/2 block to main shopping strip (circuit ave) Great proximity to restaurants, but the walls are thin, and there are shared bathrooms and in some rooms, shared outdoor porches as well. One morning we found a Heineken bottle on the table outside our room. Front desk service can be spotty when the younger kids are left in charge, but otherwise friendly and accommodating of our requests.
