I don't know if I've ever rated a business or personal accomodations as a 5. There's usually something not quite right whether it's a low-cost hotel or a high-end hotel in Moscow or Prague. The Lotus House is a 5 without question. Everything is well thought-out and it's evident that the owner has put a lot of thought and energy into the whole experience for her guests. Fantastic value.
It's located right in the center of P-town on Commercial Ave so if you enjoy the high level of activity and ease of getting in and out, it's perfect. We stayed for two days recently and were able to bop out for breakfast, chilling on the beach on the bayside, drinks, dinner, etc. A parking pass is available for the local commercial lot which is a two-minute walk away. Honestly, once you ditch you car you won't need it for the whole weekend. Bikes can easily and safely be parked in the back garden courtyard and will make getting around almost effortless, and fun.
The Lotus House is perfect; clean, fresh and casual. The place has been renovated and the rooms are fresh and well-appointed. Art on the walls is photography by one of the owners and is quite appropriate. The bed was firm and perfect. (Nothing worse than being in a good place with a bad bed!). Wide-screen, nice gas fireplace, bedroom sink, split-system AC, and refrig/freezer and beautiful tiled bath. There's a nice back deck for breakfast and hanging with coffee (the coffee is good) in the morning. The host, Rich, has a lot of information about the area, great places to eat, great bars and so forth and will really help to get you into the local scene quickly. We found him to be genuine, humorous, well-informed and very generous...I've never had a hotel or inn feel so welcoming in every way. We were a late-night arrival and Rich was still very warm, helpful and chill.
The enclosed back garden is a perfect little retreat with coffee or a book if you want a little space. Sunny in the morning and it has a nice little enclosed outdoor shower! This is clearly our "spot" in the center of town for the foreseeable future; we'll definitely be back.
Only slight caveat: if you are not into the loud night life, best to get a room on the back of the house, which will be quiet and still offer views of the monument and garden couryard.
Front of the house you will be able to people-watch on Commercial Ave but can be loud at night. Bac...
