One star for this motel masquerading as a hotel -- this review is long overdue. We stayed here a little after Labor Day weekend, but my resentment lives on...so here we go: This would probably be fine for twentysomething youngsters looking to cram into a room with 5 other friends for a weekend in P-town. But for an adult who... More

I went to P-Town for a weekend in May with a couple of friends and stayed in an ocean view room. The name is very misleading, because this is really a motel, not a hotel. They required a 2 night minimum stay even in May and I expected it to be nicer. I guess the sweeping sands from the beach... More

I stay at the Harbor Hotel every year since they have reopened from the Cape Inn and I must say this year was the most unfortunate. On the up side, they have made some very nice improvements to the hotel since my last stay. The welcome packets really shine a new light when checking in - I loved them. Another... More

Overall great trip, we were never there in the winter before so hard to compare with previous stays. Hotel used to have a continental breakfast but not any more since new management. A table in the room so we could eat at would have been great. No microwave also.

This hotel was quite comfortable and the rooms are quite funky in decor. We enjoyed sitting around the fire pit and met a few other guests. Hotel is across the road from the water but still has a great view from the front of the building. We were there in September when the population is smaller so we chose to... More

The Harbor Hotel has a contemporary style, great staff, excellent breakfast buffet and service with a smile throughout our experience! While off the main drag, it's proximity to the ocean gives you what every Cape Cod vacation cries out for, the sight, scent, sound of the beach!

Over the past 30 years I have seen many changes to this property. (P-town was my childhood hometown.) In previous years the rooms had full carpeting, but now they have only partial carpeting. The cement floors are a bit cold in the Fall. The current management is doing a pretty good job overall...

From the moment we checked in we were given super friendly and personal service. We had a bay-view room and waking up to the ocean was breathtaking! The room was comfortable and nicely designed.
