Rooms on the ground floor are nice and dog friendly. The people were very nice, especially when booking. It is part of a restaurant, so the breakfasts were great, eggs, fruit, bagels, cereal, fresh muffins. The restaurant people are really nice and friendly too. Its located a bit on the Eastend of town. You can easily access the beach for... More

I found this place last-minute online and was surprised by how reasonable it was for the location. The staff was friendly, accommodating, and always remembered my name coming and going. The room itself was cozy, comfortable, GREAT water pressure in the showers. I highly recommend it. I wish I could stay another night but it looks like everyone has heard... More

My wife and I stayed for 3 days (2 nights) at the Waterford earlier this month (July). When we first arrived, we experienced some issues with finding parking for our rental car -- parking in Provincetown is a serious problem, and we were caught by surprise on this. Eventually, we found we could park across the street at a private... More

We stayed one night during 4th of July week at this inn. It's in the heart of Provincetown, easy walking distance to shops, restaurants, and historical sites. The room was huge, beautifully appointed and a VERY reasonable price (especially for the high season). We had lunch in their restaurant...quite good. The innkeeper, Melissa, was knowledgeable about the town and very... More

I just returned from a 4 night stay here. It is one of the lower priced inns at Provincetown which does not have a minimum stay requirement. This was the primary reason we selected it (unfortunately). Here's what you get. A disgustingly stained mattress from water damage which continues to be used, no bed-beg protection cover either (big big risk... More

As my husband and I considered our annual day trip to P'town I decided to check quickly for overnight accommodations so that we did not need to rush. I could not believe my eyes when I saw the super price for a last minute deal online. Coincidentally, I recognized from the pictures that The Waterford Inn was located behind the... More

The entire staff at the Waterford inn and the restaurant were really great . I think all of them could take the prize for being the best we have come across in our many travels . They were so friendly and helpful which made our first trip to Provincetown a memorable experience . Our room was bright and very clean.... More

The Waterford is perfectly situated on Commercial Street--just a short walk from the heart of town but just far enough away to be quiet and restful. Our room was very comfortable and screamed "you are at the beach" with its pale blue and white color scheme and decor. It was also absolutely clean. The staff were welcoming and efficient. We...

The Waterford is a great place to spend a romantic weekend. The hotel is very well located and the rooms are cozy, cute, clean and comfortable. Also, it's affordable considering p-town is so expensive.
