Nantucket White House Inn
Ranked #15 of 38 Nantucket B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 October 2012

My boyfriend and I stayed at the White House Inn in June, and we loved it. We like to travel, and this is by far the best inn we have stayed at. It was our first time to the island. The staff was very friendly and helpful when we needed directions. They were even more helpful with helping us decide what activates to do here on the island. We stayed in room number 1, which had a nice little sitting area and was very clean. Definitely worth the price!! The view looking outside the room was nice too. There were so many beaches to choose from, the staff was very helpful in helping us decide which one to go to. They also provided us with a beach bag, beach towels, and a cooler with ice packs. It was nice to come back to the room, shower and sit outside in the nice sitting area they have in the back with a little garden. While we were out for the day, the cleaner would come in a freshen up our room. We rented bikes for two days, so we were able to leave our bikes in the racks they provide. Because we were staying in town, we expected it to be loud, but it was very quiet. We were not the only guest there, but we never heard anyone else. They provided us with vouchers to the bakery across the street for breakfast. One morning we went and sat at a restaurant, and the bakery allowed us to use the vouchers for an afternoon snack, which was delightful! Over all I’d say this is the best place to stay if you are looking to feel at home!

My husband, daughter and I visited friends this summer at Nantucket. The white house inn, which is under new ownership, was a quick wallk from the ferry which was great. Check-in is located in their yummy candy shop. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The new owners have updated all the furniture in the rooms. Our room had a beautiful sleigh bed, very cozy, comfortable and clean. The location was great. Walk out the door and go shopping, to the beach, for walk, out to eat. We really enjoyed being able to park our bikes out back, we rode to the beach several times, a 5 minute ride by bike. We also walked to a beautiful play ground right on the beach from the inn. After dinner we loved stopping in the candy shop and trying their homemade chocolates. Our only challenge was keeping our 4 year old out of the candy shop, she loved the the variety of treats and she got a beautiful butterfly kite their.

We (wife, daughter, and self) stayed at the White House Inn this past summer and everything met or exceeded our expectations. The room was very clean and updated. The location was fantastic in middle of Nantucket center and a short distance from several beaches. The value for location, etc., was great! We also spent several days on the lower cape and paid more for much less return. As mentioned in an earlier review the setting was a room located above the candy store but it was very cozy and clean. The candy store was also amazing! The inn offered vouchers for a delicious bakery across the street that offered some unique options. Everyone we encountered working at the inn and candy store was very friendly and accommodating. Overall we had a great experience for a reasonable cost. It seems most options on Cape Cod and especially Nantucket and just way overpriced. If you want a great stay, a great value, and don't mind giving up a few of the perks of one of the overpriced options this is the place! We will certainly be back.

We were met with great hospitality (and it continued throughout our stay) and a location that can't be beat by the price. We thought it might be loud due to the locaton (next to the Jarrett House) but it was actually very quite at night. We had everything we needed but I can't stop this review without say that this stay also met our really high expectations for cleanliness (top to bottom in every room). No, it's not the Ritz, but if you want to be in the middle of it and have a really nice staff, this is really an amazing deal. They give you a breakfast certificate to a local bakery. We really wanted to try a local restaurant for breakfast (Blackeyed Susans) so we were lucky to take our 'breakfast' certificate and use it for a few lunch items (we were full from breakfast so this was perfect) and head out to the beach to enjoy! So you may ask why I'm not giving it a 5? It is a 5 in what is available for this fantastic site to offer!

Room Tip: Something must be wrong with the TA site - they make you choose Swimming Pool and Fitness Center or...

If you are thinking about staying at the White House Inn in Nantucket you need to know a few things. First, the good. The location cannot be beat if you want to stay in town. You are virtually minutes walk from everthing in the downtown area, yet on the edge of the downtown. Perfect. The manager works very hard to make you feel at home. The price is reasonable by Nantucket standards for downtown. The room was clean and the bed comfortable, nice towels, hot water, but the basics for over $250/night. So, what's the problem. The White House Inn is not an inn, it's a rooming house. The first floor is a candy company run by the same people who manage the inn. The manager of the "inn" is working her tail off at the candy company, and, through no fault of her own, has difficulty attending to the rooms. Trash not emptied, coffee maker not cleaned, etc., without prompting. There is no check in area, no common area, no sitting area, and no staff, except the manager who goes home to her house out of town every night. The rooms are tiny, as one would expect at this price in the center of town, but have little charm; our room, with two charis, was reportedly the largest. Bathroom is outdated. There is a picnic bench in an overgrown backyard garden which is "tired". For breakfast you get a voucher for the across the street bakery; though very good, there is no place to sit down except on the benches on the street. In fairness, the manager is trying to expand the voucher to other restaurants. I hope the owners are paying her well as she clearly works very hard. Perhaps she had staff during the summer season; we were there in September. Also odd is that the house stays open all night. Someone can literally walk in off the street at any hour and come knock on your door. SO, if you want one of the cheapest place in town, only need a bed, and little charm, this may be your place. If you are willing to pay a little bit more, want to stay at an inn, and appreciate charm, look somewhere else. I hold the owner, not the manager, responsible for calling this an inn.

Room Tip: Room 1 is the only one with chairs.

We loved the stay and location!!! The linens were by far the softess I have ever slept on. The staff was outstanding with every minor detail. I would stay here everytime we return back to the island. No car necessary with the inn. Price of a stay was by far the best on the island

Booked the White House Inn for a long Labor Day weekend with a group of friends, and could not have been happier. We were able to get into our room early (nice room with everything we needed) and were provided with a cooler & ice packs and beach towels. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful from start to finish. I would go back in a heartbeat!
