COVID-19 Update

The Beachside Inn on Nantucket

Due to COVID-19 Rules and Regulations, Masks are required for all Guests Checking-In and in Common Areas of the hotel during their stay.

Rhode Island no longer exempt from Massachusetts’ travel restrictions due to COVID-19 positive test rate

Updated Aug 04, 2020

Dear Guests & Friends:

We're sorry to say our lives just got more complicated. Gov. Baker just removed Rhode Island from our list of Safe 8 States, so now we are down to safe 7. Arriving guests from Rhode Island will need to follow the same MA State Protocol as the other states outside of our region.

Travelers from Rhode Island entering the Bay State will have to start quarantining for two weeks due to an increasing COVID-19 positive test rate, according to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.

Important Update

Effective August 1, 2020

Effective August 1, 2020, all travelers to Massachusetts must comply with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Travel Order.

The travel new order requires all visitors and returning residents to complete a Massachusetts Traveler Form unless they are coming from a state that has been designated a lower risk COVID-19 state or fall into an exemption category.

The new travel order also provides that visitors and returning residents arriving in Massachusetts from any other place other than a COVID-19 lower-risk state must quarantine for 14-days unless they can produce a negative COVID-19 test result administered on a sample taken not more than 72-hours prior to arriving in Massachusetts

The current list of lower risk states that are exempt from this travel order are as follows: Connecticut. Hawaii, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont.

We appreciate your commitment to keeping our entire community safe and limiting the spread of COVID-19 by taking this extra precaution.

Your safety and the safety of our employees is of utmost importance to us, so please email or call with any questions or concerns at or call our reservation office at 1-800-322-4433.

Housekeeping Update

Effective July 1, 2020

Due to the COVID-19, Housekeeping services will only be available daily from 9am until 3pm, and only upon request to the front desk between 8am and 9am.

If you wish for your room to be cleaned by our housekeeping on ANY or EVERYDAY during your stay with us, please dial “0” to speak to the Front Desk EACH morning during your stay after 8am and before 9am that day to request housekeeping service and give us the specific time when you know that you will NOT be in your room or your patio outside your room.

We are unable to offer housekeeping services if any guests are in the room or outside on their patio.

If we do not hear from you at the front desk between 8am and 9am on any day during your stay to let us know what time you will be out of your room, we will not schedule your room to be cleaned that day. Unfortunately, there can be no exceptions to this procedure, as it is vitally important that your room be empty during a housekeeping visit.

Towels and extra sheets will be available upon request by dialing “0” during Lobby hours daily (8am - 8pm), if you do not notify us that you need housekeeping services on any given day during your stay.
