Positive Reviews

Excellent waterfront location

The hotel is located on Provincetown Harbor. Therefore, it has magnificent ocean views. It enjoys a quiet, peaceful setting, within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Additionally, it’s easily accessible by public transport and close by from major places of interest in Provincetown.

Polite and attentive staff

Staff in the hotel had a nice, welcoming attitude and greeted the guests with a cheerful face. Guests said that the staff was extremely polite and always attentive; whenever their assistance was required they always made themselves available. Moreover, they gave personal attention to all the guests.

Lovely cottages

The cottages in the hotel had quaint décor, giving it a rustic look. The ambiance was very refreshing, plus all the cottages had beautiful views. Guests said that the cottages were cozy as well as clean, had old-world furniture, and lovely living areas with relaxing furniture.

Negative Reviews

Crammed up rooms

Rooms in the hotel were pretty tight and crammed up. With the beds and pull-out sofas, there was barely any place to move around. Plus, some guests said that the beds in a few rooms were lumpy and uncomfortable.

Poor soundproofing

Walls in the rooms are exceptionally thin, making conversations from one room to another clearly audible. There is also noise of room doors banging and vehicles from the street. Such noises, especially late night, were disturbing.

Lack of attention to detail

There were many small glitches reported by the guests. There were several light bulbs burned out causing inconvenience. Plus the bathrooms are unclean and there is limited parking available.
