How it Ranks: The Cottages at the Boat Basin ranks #3 out of nine Nantucket Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews.
Our Take: This quirky cottage-and-loft hotel sits on both Old South Wharf and Swain's Wharf in Nantucket Town. All of the accommodations, which boast maritime themed décor, at least a partial view of the harbor, and the chorus of slapping waves, chirping seagulls, and the occasional foghorn, makes for a truly unique stay. Plus, the complimentary amenities, such as free Wi-Fi access, fishing rods, and beach umbrellas, aren't too shabby either. And there are special Woof Cottages available with a whole host of extras for those traveling with pets. When hunger sets in, venture to Brant Point Grille, which serves up succulent seafood dishes that satisfy even the most discerning of diners. The only drawback, according to a few recent visitors is the disruptive nighttime noise due to the rowdy nearby bars. Most guests, however, report a pleasant stay overall due to the hotel's laid-back ambiance and extremely accommodating staff. The Cottages & Lofts at the Boat Basin is a seasonal property, open from Early April to October.
