My three sisters and I stayed one night on Nantucket at the White Elephant Village on October 7 of this year. We were overwhelmed with the hospitality. The staff was helpful with answers to any questions, booking our lunch reservations, giving us a ride or a pick up in their white BMWs, providing a bottle of champagne upon our arrival....

We stayed at the residencies here and have to say it was just beautiful. From the bay location to the immaculate kept grounds the resort is a jewel. The only thing that gave this site a lower score was the lackadaisical and seasons over attitude of the staff. If coming after Columbus Day don't anticipate an abundance of restaurant and...

We have enjoyed WE for years. Staff is still great as is the the setting. Close to town and still quiet. The resort has matured into a quality fun base for Nantucket visits. Room 31 this time is high up with a decent but not great view. Parking lots and ugly buildings take away what should be a great view...

We stayed for a long weekend after Labor Day as the season winds down, just a bit. As your reservation approaches, they’ll ask for your arrival time so a driver can meet you and shuttle you to the hotel, about 5 minutes from Hy-Line dock. Check in was quick. Front desk staff very helpful with suggestions about where to eat,...

If money isn't an issue, we rented a 3 bedroom cottage which was perfect for our three generation family. They even gave us a BMW for our use! Every generation had their own bed and bath and we shared a great living room. The services, staff, and ammenities were top notch. We were given a 15% discount for the restaurant...

We booked a 1-bedroom residence (Milestone/Manchester building) for our family of 4 (two teenagers) in early June. The 2nd floor unit includes a small loft upstairs which my 14-year old son took over as his “teen/man-cave” – my daughter (18) slept on a rollaway bed. Unit was recently refurbished – very comfortable, beautifully decorated and appointed. Kitchenette has everything you...

Top notch for an anniversary sober night stay I. August - yes it's pricey, but it's Nantucket in August. Location is A+ They did everything to ensure it was smooth - booked a restaurant, complimentary beach chairs, towels and parking - no nickel and dining, just focus on guests - we will be back

There were just too many service issues keeping our stay from being above average, despite the well appointed room and ideal location. 1. Bed full of sand after turndown service. Note it was not from us as we had not yet used the bed - yuck. Housekeeping gave attitude regarding the subject. 2. Wine cooler beeped all night. No manager...
