There were three of us doing a three week holiday to New York and New England and we generally had two rooms. We stayed two nights at the Fairbanks Inn and had one Classic King and one New Standard King. The rooms were sparingly but smartly furnished and looked like the photos on the website. In the Classic King room... More

My husband and I had a wonderful stay, even on a rainy October weekend. The decor at the Inn is just my taste; minimalist with clean lines and old charm. Everyone was SO nice and the breakfast each morning was delicious. The location is perfect, walking distance to everything, but not as loud as the main street. We would absolutely... More

The Fairbanks Inn has an old timey feel with all of the comforts of home. Right when we walked in, we were greeted by Julia. She was so nice and helpful, and even made a great recommendation for dinner. The room was clean, albeit plain and minimalist. We were in room 7, which was smaller that I had hoped. There... More

We enjoyed our time at Fairbanks Inn in Provincetown. Kevin and Julia were very very helpful, event gave us a bottle of champagne to celebrate our anniversary.

My husband and I visited Provincetown for the very first time this month after the crowds had gone away. Driving in from Boston took longer due to rain but on a normal day should only be 2.5 hours. The drive itself is easy and allows you to stop and enjoy all the other parts of the Cape as well. Provincetown... More

We could not have enjoyed a better hotel experience in Provincetown, I'm sure. Our room (8) was large and extremely comfortable, with two free bottles of water provided on arrival (a nice touch but one that many hotels fail to do). The owners and their staff could not have been more welcoming and obliging, really friendly without being intrusive. And... More
