Looks like the last modification to this hotel was 1960. It is one of the most disgusting places I have ever stayed. Complete with black pubic hairs in the shower and sink from the previous guest(s). The only good thing is the view if your lucky enough to get the 5 rooms in the front. I would definitely pay the... More

We booked one of the most expensive room with the king bed and view . The TV was one of the small old 28/30 inch ones. That was fine because we don't watch much TV.The night we arrived the TV cable box was broken,The owner replaced it. The next morning the shower did not work. The owner switched us to... More

First note that this motel is not actually in Provincetown but 15 minute drive down in Truro. So if you think you are staying in the heart of commercial street you are not. Also the motel swipes your credit card for the full stay upon check in and has a no refund policy if not cancelled 12 days before check... More

I recently got back from a weekend getaway and stayed for 3 nights. The Owner Susie was most friendly and helpful to all my needs. The room was dated, but clean and the large mini fridge big enough for a week of food and drinks. The bathroom was clean and the water pressure was fantastic. It is a no frills... More

Checked in...carpeted floor was wet, not wet from kids feet at the beach wet, but dumped a mop bucket wet. The room smelled of urine and mold. The a/c did not work at all. There was bloody finger prints on the wall. Very dated. Wi-Fi only available at the front office with the written rule "no downloading." Positives to be... More

Just stayed at the Breakwater in P Town for the weekend and calling it a dump is putting it mildly. I travel extensively and have stayed at no less than 500 hotels/motels over my lifetime and this one was easily the worst. The entire facility is outdated and old. I guarantee the décor, furnishings, bedspreads, carpet, etc, are the original... More

Terribly overpriced for what you get. Lumpy bed, dirty carpet (your feet get black walking inside), locker room smell, weak A/C, ran out of hot water in the shower. At least the bus comes by, as the hotel is on the outskirts of town and not within walking distance.

I have stayed at this motel with my Newf mix atleast 6 times. The staff is friendly the rooms are clean (dated) and cleaned daily, the location in my opinion can not be beat with the dog friendly beach in front of the hotel and the center of Ptown only a 30 minute walk away. Also this is the least... More

Staying off season , mid september, you can't beat the price of $65 a night. Room # 1 at the back, had parking lot view. Wi-fi was good. Small room but clean, no frills. Kind of far from center of town, but quick bike ride. Quiet room. "Beach" across street was a joke. Motel next door has restaurant, lounge, movie... More

In some locations a motel like this would be an average value. In Provincetown it is an excellent value. In addition this motel has a very strong assett. Susie, one of the owners who works the front desk, is the friendliest and most helpful motel staff person I have met. She made us feel welcome. She was a good resource... More
