Good coffee cake in the mornings. pillows and comforter were nice and seemed clean. Cons: a very worn, run down place and not in a charming kind of way.It seriously... More

We recently returned from a two night stay at this lovely old (1776) Inn. The first thing I want to comment on is the quality of two of the staff members. Julie at check-in went above and beyond in providing us with an upgraded room when we were unhappy with the room we had. Within 5 minutes, we were whisked... More

I wanted to love the Inn and that being said we had a really nice stay and would return, but as the Inn is marketed as luxury accommodations, there are areas to improve. Some of my points are very nit picky, but I'm hoping they help. First there are many positives. The location is perfect and within walking distance to... More

My four-night stay at The Fairbanks Inn proved that expert guest service and accommodations are alive and well in Provincetown. From the pre-arrival "when might you arrive so we can have your room ready" email from Julia, to the front-desk check-in and friendly banter with David, one of the owners, to the responsive breakfast and housekeeping staff, my friend and...

We recently stayed there at one of the rooms that they haven't renovated yet. Even though they only did some basic upgrades, the room was still lovely. Kevin and David have put together a fantastic team that makes sure your stay is the best it can be. And that breakfast! It's worth the price alone. We look forward to seeing... More

Prior to our open this season, we updated and re-invented all of our "Classic" un-renovated guest rooms with fresh paint, linen, furniture, and decor to help make them comfortable for our guests. I am glad to hear you found your room "lovely" and enjoyed our accommodations. We have big plans for our property renovation this winter, and look forward to... More

A group of four of us traveled from NYC for a long weekend and had a tremendous experience with the folks at the Fairbanks Inn. The staff is kind, knowledgeable, extremely engaging, and whips up a delicious breakfast. The location could not be more fantastic, located one block behind the "main drag" (Commercial Street) making everything accessible on foot. The... More

My wife and I just returned from P-town and had to write about The Fairbanks Inn. Every morning there was an egg dish and multiple cakes and pastries. If you wanted to eat healthy, there was fresh granola, fruit and yogurt. I tried it all and it was delicious. The best part of our stay was the staff - Daniel... More

The new owners have filled the inn with a delightful team who serve with excellence. Felt very cared for during our stay. The internal changes to rooms look beautiful and made us feel quite spoiled (which is a good thing on vacation). Look forward to returning again very soon!

Just got back from a great 4 day weekend with friends for our annual summer getaway and LOVED this place. Close to everything, the rooms were great- classic but updated and beds were fabulous. We are looking to stay here again next year. Thanks for a great trip!
