First, the good: The location is great. It's right on Commercial St., so we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to be. The room was very clean - no complaints there. The front desk staff was very helpful & happily held our bags for us after check-out so that we could explore a few more hours before departing. (This... More

We stayed in September 2014 at the Boatslip with another couple and had a real blast. Very fun place to stay (the famous Tea Dance is a must) and the staff are very friendly. The breakfast provided in the lobby is a nice touch. Not the place to stay if you are after a quiet time!

This was our 4th stay at the Boatslip. We travel to Ptown once every year in September to avoid the summer crowds. The Boatslip is dependable in that its clean, on the bay, it has parking, convenient to walk around and has decent service. Since our last stay, they have changed the carpet out and added a surround to the... More

Two of us in spacious room...water pressure in shower not so good...could be the showerhead is to big for what comes out. Friendly Front Desk and you can't beat the location or T-Dance! We were facing Commercial but noise not an issue. Book here!

Pros- beautiful bayfront view! Sitting on the deck to the noise of the waves of the bay is just so relaxing. In addition there is a pool and a bar! Cons- don't expect to receive expert info prior to arrival. I got a one line response which didn't answer my questions. Still, this aside, I'd still pick the Boatslip!

I picked this hotel because there was parking as I was driving down the street. I am not sorry that I did pick it as I stayed 2 nights here. The afternoon tea party was loud but it did not bother me. It was a real walkable place to station oneself. We knew that Provincetown was a Gay Friendly town... More

The newly renovated BoatSlip is wonderful. The entire staff is so professional and friendly! The towels and bedding are all brand new and sumptuous. You will not be disappointed. They also serve continental breakfast.

I am happy to report the rooms are now air-conditioned and most of the furnishing have been updated. Still basic accommodations, clean room, comfortable beds, bathroom is nothing fancy but it is clean and very functional, fyi there... More

Few places are as well situated as the Boatslip Resort. It's right in the centre of things. One important plus is the parking. It's terribly hard to park in Provincetown so you need somewhere that offers parking. Once parked you don't need to move until you leave, I would have given the resort a four except that the carpentry in... More

Stayed here for a week and had a wonderful time. The staff are most professional and friendly, the rooms are very comfortable and perfectly clean, and the resort is convenient for all the daytime & nighttime activities of Provincetown. And, your resort is right on the beach.
