The Giff is a bit of a tired old Dame in need of a facelift. However, during busy times when all the "good places" are filled this old chestnut still charges in excess of two hundred a nite for grandma's bedroom and sketchy WiFi that's useless on the 3rd floor (no elevator). The queen bed was comfortable enough, but the... More

This is the restaurant inside the Gifford House Inn. We were waiting in line to get into another restaurant and this gent had a menu across the street and said "join us at Noreen's no waiting". So up the hill we went and were greeted very warmly at Noreen's. They have a special eggs Benedict with home made hollandaise sauce... More

I had a wonderful time at the gifford house. Great customer service and the restaurant has great food. The music can be loud on weekends but I stay up late anyway so it wasn't a problem for me. Free admission into the dance club with your stay. I would definitely return.

Stayed for a night at Gifford House. Great location in middle of Ptown. From reservation to the free continental breakfast. Staff couldn't be nicer!!! Cudos to Raul! He was terrific and accommodating. Our room was comfortable -- nothing fancy. Basic but did the trick. No AC, but there were fans and a nice breeze from the windows. The piano bar... More

The "Gifford" is I am sure, run with the best of intentions, however like the staff, the hotel is in need of a major overhaul. The rooms are pokey, the beds are soft and the fixtures and fittings very much under standard - even for an Inn. Keep your expectations low. The continental breakfast was unimaginative and lacked finesse. Dont... More

The rooms are spacious; private baths; many rooms offer great views of the harbor or the bay. The staff will go out of their way to help you. Free parking! This is a great place for travelers on a budget or those seeking an authentic Cape Cod experience. If you are accustomed to staying at the Four Seasons, feel free... More

This place is a complete dump if you're there for a room. The beds are horrendous! you feel the springs, the beds are loud, takes 15 mins to get hot water out of the shower, the AC didn't work. Décor is stuck in the 60's/70's, Needs serious updating. Live entertainment keeps you up at night. The only plus is that... More

My husband I enjoyed our four nights at the Gifford House. The room was clean and comfortable. Great location near many of our favorite places in PTown. Some guests may be put off by the dated furnishings, but the Inn is a great value for the price. If you are seeking quiet, this may not be the best place as... More

Sluggo65 did an excellent job capturing this place. Have a look at his Oct 2013 review. It was my first time to Ptown - so I don't have my own comparisons to this or other Ptown properties - but I'd call it cheap and cheerful. Terrific central location. Two buildings with 3 stories, no elevator. Springs would occasionally 'boing' in... More
