“Our favorite B&B in Ptown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

My partner and I love the Benchmark Inn. The rooms are always so neat/tidy/clean, comfortable and the garden is lovely (nice area to relax) - the whole property is very well maintained. The location is ideal - nestled on a peaceful/quiet street between Commercial and Bradford (5 minutes from the hustle bustle). The daily breakfasts are tasty which we often enjoy on the balcony right outside our room. The owners, Dan and Daniel are great - really wonderful people who are genuinely glad to help ensure that their guests are enjoying their stay. This summer we stayed several days in July and returned a few weeks later (much shorter stay) for our anniversary - Dan and Daniel were quite thoughtful/sweet by surprising us with a bottle of bubbly on ice, champagne glasses and snack to add to our celebration. We highly recommend the Benchmark Inn to anyone who appreciates upscale with a warm, relaxed atmosphere.

Thank you, dear guests, for your wonderful feedback. We are always excited if guests choose our inn for any kind of celebration. And this is why we always try to contribute with whatever we can to make this day as happy as can be.
It is also to say that guests as lovely as you are a great motivation for us to always strive for excellence. And we are already looking forward to see you again! And don't forget: Ptown is not only a summer destination, it is particularly beautiful in the fall and spring. And we are open year round, so even a nice winter weekend is worth a try!

A delightful experience in every respect. Dan and Daniel are perfect hosts, and the two housekeepers were equally charming and accommodating. Due to the location, we were able to walk to all the restaurants and activities we chose. Parking (usually a problem in P-town) was not a problem, because Dan and Daniel had our car available if and when we wanted it. The room was small but neat and comfortable, and the deck was cool.

You can't go wrong with the Benchmark. Dan and Daniel, the owners, just wouldn't let that happen. We stayed here for 2 nights in early August, 2013 and really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are on the smaller side but very modern and well equipped. Great atmosphere and plenty of amenities. The location is perfect - you are within walking distance of all the attractions in Provincetown but not in the middle of the craziness. Very friendly staff and a delicious breakfast each morning make the Benchmark Inn a perfect location for enjoying a vacation in Provincetown.

Thank you very much for your feedback. We take great attention to our extended continental breakfast and use only the freshest produce to make our own homemade bread, our own jam and - on sundays - our very special Swiss Sunday Bread. And we are more than happy that you enjoyed it this much.
One of our personal pleasures is the work of decorating our rooms. And this in a modern and clean way. Great that you enjoyed our style!

You can tell that Dan & Daniel who own the Benchmark Inn really enjoy their work and pay attention to the small details that make a B&B special. I felt like walking into a warm and welcoming home with tastefully decorated rooms and a very friendly vibe to it all. Make sure you try their many home-made (and I mean "made at home in their kitchen at the Inn") treats - which may make you come back over and over again. The location is an added bonus: within walking distance of the bustling town centre but far enough from it to enjoy quiet nights. If you're willing to spend the money for their penthouse, you'll be rewarded with a great room and a spectacular view on the water/town from the deck. Impeccable service and great conversations at the central breakfast table included.

Thanks for your review! Dan is especially challenged now to make more of our jams that you liked so much. But we'll be ready for your return! Looking forward to it.

We just spent 4 nights at the Benchmark Inn in the beginning of August. Perfect location - right near the center of town but enjoys quiet a few steps off busy commercial street. We stayed in the Penthouse on the third level. Worth the extra expense to have the deck and outdoor space. Incredible views of the harbor (You can see all the way to Long Point lighthouse) and lounge chairs to relax and sun. Amenities and finishes are high-end and service was impeccable. Lovely outdoor garden space.Owners Daniel and Dan are absolutely delightful.

Room Tip: The third floor rooms have an incredible semi-private deck - worth the extra money.

We stayed here for a week in July and absolutely loved it. Our room (no 7) is one of the more bijou rooms but what it lacked in size it more than made up for thanks to a huge balcony and the view over P'Town. Everything about this B&B is meticulously thought out but it's the friendly staff and attention to detail that make it so special.
What really made it special for us, though, were the many happy breakfasts. The kitchen table was a great way to meet people. Normally, we dread breakfasts in B&Bs but on most mornings we'd still be chatting away to guests at midday and that's due in part to the friendly, relaxed atmosphere the owners have created. Highly recommended.

just returned from 4 glorious days and 3 nights in p-town. Aside from great weather(not a given in New England), the Benchmark Inn had alot to do with our satisfaction. Used to live in Massachusetts, so P-town wasn't a new commodity -- however, never found this level of sheer amicability, well-designed space, and overall comfort. Dan and Daniel, the owners, clearly love what they do and it shows. Two rooms are dog friendly -- another plus.. Dyer street is central to everything, but quiet enough to given you a few Zen moments as well. We stayed in the "penthouse" which had incomparable views(including a shared deck which was great for a cup of coffee and computer time. I usually don't write reviews but this one is worth the few clicks on the computer. They fill early, so book early for peak season.... A ++

Room Tip: again, penthouse has the best views... worth the extra money
