The inn is absolutely beautiful--elegant, simple and cozy with so many lovely modern and rustic details. Loved that we woke up to an amazing breakfast each morning and could hop into bed each night with a fire going in our room! The owner is so wonderful and gave us fantastic suggestions for our first weekend in the Cape, and the... More

We spent a fabulous long weekend here in August 2014. The location is fantastic, the food at breakfast is amazing and the owner and staff are knowledgeable and friendly. Can't say enough good things about this spot. It is old and perhaps lacks some of the comforts of a 5 star hotel, but it makes up for it with charm... More

The joint emanates a Vogue Living spread; fresh and textured with the perfect amount of detail. Like Cape Cod, the hotel was chic without being pretentious. The owner, David, couldn't have been friendlier and made sure our stay was perfect. And it was. Couldn't recommend any higher.

Spent 2 nights. Convenient location close to the harbor and the tons of restaurants/stores along the main street, but quiet enough since it's one street away. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious! Everything made from scratch and we had different items on the menu on the 2 mornings. The room is cozy and the bathroom modern and recently renovated (the shower... More

I guess this being Provincetown owners can charge whatever they want and get every room filled no matter its condition. Pros-very good location -short walk to downtown and the wharf. 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
