“Can't Wait to Go Back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

We stumbled upon the Surfside entirely by accident while planning a flying stop through Provincetown to do a whale watch. It was a lucky find because we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else, and we've gone back for three additional vacations since (and we're looking forward to the next!). The location is perfect because it is close enough to downtown to be convenient, but far enough away to be quiet, especially at night. The waterfront rooms have an incredible view, and a lovely breeze. The private beach is beautiful and fairly substantial, and an attraction in itself. The saltwater pool is wonderful and clearly well maintained. Wonderful hotel staff, and the Quigley's are always great! Every year that we return they have made additional updates, which we look forward to seeing! Can't wait to go back next year!

We have been coming to the Surfside for 20 years but increased our stay to twice a summer once Elaine and David took over mgt. Every stay has been exceptional but this one topped them all because after 20 years my partner became my spouse on the beach at the Surfside. With little notice, Elaine helped us locate a wonderful Rev. to officiate. We planned a small wedding , and it was, but Elaine added her own personal touch by creating a beautiful settig for us on the beach without being asked to do this. As a result we had a memorable beach wedding, made even more special because our "Provincetown Family", Elaine,David and Kelsea were there.

As always, the property was exceptional! The new waterfront decor is beautiful and the views are amazing. We enjoyed the new firepit and met new friends there. We were amazed by the good wishes we received from guests who heard we were getting married. Everyone is so friendly here. This was the perfect stay and we can't wait for August to come back!

Room Tip: Book waterfront rooms. They are a bit more but the views and sunsets are amazing.

Hotel has great location is Provincetown. Comfortable walking distance to shops, restaurants, and the pier. Didn't use pool, but looked really clean. Nice patio outside lobby bar. Continental breakfast. Great view of ocean for half the rooms with common balcony. Reasonably priced. Good parking lot.

Room Tip: Definitely try to get ocean view.

I just returned home with my boyfriend from a quick one night stay in Provincetown. We didn't try to book a room until the night before and this was literally the only room left in the town. Traveling almost 300 days a year for work I know a good hotel from a bad one, and a real review from a crap one. Based on the other reviews I was a bit nervous but a had no other choices. When we arrived 4 hours prior to check in our room was already ready. When we opened the blinds we were blown away by the view. The hotels private beach was in front of us and the ocean was about 40 ft away. Some people might say that the hotel is too far away from all of the action. I disagree, it's only a 15 minute walk to everything. The next time I'm in P-Town I'll be staying again.Oh and the staff. The staff at the hotel could not be better I talked at one point or another to everyone from the manager to maintenance, everyone went above and beyond to make our stay even that much better. Lastly the hotel does not have its own restaurant so what they have down is worked out a deal where you can order from the restaurant across the street and they will pick it up for you. The place had a great menu. The Surfside is perfect for couples, to family's, to groups.

Andrew thank you for your review, it was a pleasure talking with you while you were here, we hope to see you again when you have some time off. I'm happy to hear that your Surfside experience was over and above what you expected and that my staff was part of that experience. Of course the view from our newly remodeled rooms does take your breath away when you walk out onto your deck, overlooking Cape Cod Bay and Provincetown Harbor. We look forward to seeing you again when your travels bring you back to Provincetown.

My boyfriend and I have stayed in several locations in Provincetown and decided to give Surfside a try. We had a wonderful experience. Although it's a bit of a walk from the town square, it has a private beach, pool and patio. The rooms are clean, wonderfully decorated and contain everything you need for a stay. Our room had a wall mounted flat screen TV, a microwave, and a miniature refrigerator which was perfect for our dinner leftovers! The staff was wonderful and accommodating to all of our needs. I would definitely stay there again!

We appreciate your review on Trip Advisor. I'm happy to hear that my staff was able to meet your expectations and that you will stay with us again. Our housekeeping staff works very hard to keep our newly remodeled rooms clean and up to the standards our guests deserve. Our saline pool is a pleasant surprise to many, no chlorine smell just a smooth feeling when getting out of the pool and so good for the skin. Our private beach on Cape Cod Bay with a view of Provincetown Harbor, our guests find so pleasant to sit out and enjoy the view in the evening or a cocktail by our firepit..
We thank you again for your review and look forward to seeing you again.

Was our first time as well at PTown! Great location, super friendly staff, great spot right on the water & beach! We had a few rooms for wedding and everyone had a fantastic time. Had some problems with wifi in room but they came up right away and offered us another room. We were on vacation and said it was OK! Highly recommend and I would stay here again next time in PTown!

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms that are on the bay!

Spent week of 4th July at the Surfside Hotel and Suites - an annual event for over a decade. Service was, as usual, superb! Had a beautiful super clean room with balcony with a waterview on the beach. Could not ask for anything better in Provincetown. Highly recommend! Management and staff are friendly, courteous, and efficient and would do anything to make your stay pleasant.
