2/5 Poor

Liked: Property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
Being an experienced traveler and NOT a moron, I understood that Hawthorn House was a host-less hotel. I was told I would receive check in instructions via email. I never did. Nor did they respond to MY email...or the multiple phone calls and texts I sent them when, upon arriving tired from a cross country flight, I was still given no information about which room was mine. We found rooms with keys in the door--I just picked one that matched what I knew I'd paid for. It was clean, but had no toilet paper. I walked to the grocery store and bought my own. Later in the day, a very nice attentive housekeeper came by and gave me towels and toilet paper. I stayed there 6 days. Never saw her again. Took out my own trash & recycling. I don't blame HER. God knows what they actually have her scheduled to do. All that being said, my room (room 8) was very comfortable. The location of Hawthorn House is excellent. It's ok. Just don't expect to feel welcomed or communicated with in even the most basic way.

Best downtown inn in Nantucket in August
The best location downtown. We had room X and it was perfect for what we needed. It’s an old house so room and plumbing reflect that but you’ll get that with most of the inns, especially downtown. No AC but lots of fans were provided. Fortunately, we only had one real humid day. Surprisingly thick walls where we didn’t hear any other guests coming and going. The most comfortable bed and pillows. Great water pressure. Only thing I could complain about was the hair in the bathroom and the drain not draining perfectly. I did mention the hair issue to the cleaning lady the next day and it was thoroughly cleaned once we got back. The drain issue I’m sure is due to the old plumbing. Overall, we visit several times a year and this was by far the best inn we’ve stayed at downtown. I highly recommend it. Will definitely stay here again.
