This is a nice hotel only a block or two from downtown Nantucket with shops and restaurants. The hotel gave us bikes during our stay at no charge. We rode them to various beaches on the island. The hotel also provides tea and coffee - in your room and at reception. There is also a pool. The staff is very nice and seems to want to be helpful and make your stay enjoyable. Although for our entire stay (almost a week) they called us by the wrong name. Every time we called. I ask that this be fixed - repeatedly. On our last day they booked us a taxi to the airport - under the wrong name! There was a lot of confusion and frustration. It's annoying to be repeatedly called Mr and Mrs so-and-so when this is not your name. We think it must have been the people who were in our room before us.
Also, lunch at the pool is not good. We ordered fruit salad. It had four very thin slices of melon and a strawberry! That's it! And it cost around $12. It was a joke. It wasn't even enough as a snack.
Otherwise the hotel is nice and I do recommend it.
