We came to the gifford house for one night and it was a great stay. The rooms are simple but for a beach town thats all you need. It is very gay orientated for obvious reasons (its in P-town) so if your not ok with gay don't stay here. I would stay again. It is literally right up the street... More

I have a love/hate relationship with the Gifford House. I can never decide if i'm charmed or digusted by it's "hasn't changed in 30 years" atmosphere. I mean, literally nothing had changed there since i started going to Ptown regularly in the late 80s. I bet nothing has moved an inch in the place in all that time, certainly nothing's... More

It's one of the larger, if not largest, Guest Houses in the area. Location is perfect being only one block from the popular Commercial Drive with restaurants & shopping. Like most of Ptown, clientele was mostly all gay when we were there. Only 4-5 blocks to the the popular Boatslip for Tea Dance and Pool time during the day. There... More

This is maybe the third or fourth time I've stayed at the Gifford House and I agree with most of the other reviewers. It's not chic by any means. In fact, it's clearly older. The furniture and furnishings are dated, BUT the location is perfect (I mean..really...perfect), and the management keep the place spotless clean (which makes a real difference).... More

Very nice and centrally located in Provicentown. Everything is close by. Nice clean room, please note that some rooms don't have AC service, but a cool big fan is provided. Good service, besides the hotel, they have 2 bars to enjoy. Highly recommended.

There! I hope I got the owner(s)/management's attention with this title. I've stayed at the Gifford House many times over the years and although the place is clean and the staff is very friendly and accommodating I feel the owners of the Gifford House should pay more attention to the condition of the beds at the Inn. I've always rented... More

This is our second year in a row staying at the Gifford House. We stay in the most basic room, and the value is unbelievable compared to the rest of P-town. Like the other reviews say, the decor in the rooms is dated, but who cares when the beds are comfy and the rooms are clean. Personally, I'm travelling to... More

If you're not fussy about the room decor, The Gifford House, offers a good value for Provincetown, MA. This is one of the oldest hotels in town. I recently stayed in the Annex. The Annex is quieter than the main hotel. The main part of the hotel has a club and piano bar in it. It's not completely quiet in... More
