HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 28 June 2016

The Beachside is a llittle gem right near the center of Nantucket. It is a motel and as such is reasonably priced but the rooms are well-appointed and the staff is solicitous. It is easy to walk to town and bikes are available at the hotel for rental. It is immaculately clean and has great satellite TV. Breakfast is continental...

Paul D, thank you for taking the time to let others know of your enjoyable stay recently at the Beachside.

We recently stayed at the Beachside and couldn't say enough good things about it! The decor is homey and modern, the beds are beyond comfortable, and the convenience to town makes this the perfect stay. The front desk staff was accommodating and friendly even after we saw them handle some particularly needy guests. Walking into town was a breeze and...

I had to go for a weekend to a wedding at Galley Beach. This was a perfect location. Plus it was only a short walk in to town. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. My room was very large and clean. The bathroom was spotless with the usual amenities. I think the towels were brand new. There is a...

The hotel is everything you expect in a shore hotel. The esthetics are beachy, the hotel accommodates your needs by providing access to showers, towels and luggage holding rooms, before and after your stay! Big bonus to make the most of your stay!

The inn is located just a short stroll from the center of town. Our room was a Veranda Queen room - very clean, recently updated, with a very comfortable bed, sofa and nice shower/bath. The inn itself was very well taken care of and provided nice accommodations for about half the price of nearby b&b's. Good coffee all the time...

Greg C., Glad to hear that you will be back to visit us at The Beachside! We do offer hot coffee in our lobby at all times. However, the town of Nantucket does not license our property, (and many others on the island, as well) to offer hot items for our guests. As you say, we do offer freshly baked...

What a bargain. Simple but had everything we needed including a balcony overlooking the pool. Very retro architecturally but modern amenities including free reliable wi fi. The cranberry lemon muffins at the free breakfast were a dividend.

I used Expedia to book this motel and got a good deal, as it is still high season in Nantucket. The hotel has some years on it, but is updated and well maintained. Most importantly, it is clean. The staff is very friendly. There is vending with drinks and snacks, laundry, and even a microwave in the vending area. The...

Location, location, location the inn is halfway from the Center of town and Jetties beach. There is nothing high end here but has all the amenities you will need. It may be one of the less expensive places to stay when on Nantucket.
