Quiet, good quality stay for off-season

Stayed for one night in early May over the weekend. Service was very friendly. Room was at the end and was quiet and clean. Bathroom was a little rough around the edges (could... read more

Our trip would never be complete without the tea dances at the Boatslip. We went all 3 nights during our stay in PTown. Oh the memories I recall over the years here. DJ Mary Alice is a fixture at this place and it would never be the same without her. I would recommend the Sunday night 70-80s dance. The crowd... More

Stayed for one night in early May over the weekend. Service was very friendly. Room was at the end and was quiet and clean. Bathroom was a little rough around the edges (could use upgrade), but water pressure was fine. Bed was comfortable. Had a balcony overlooking the deck and bay - lots of light. Keep in mind that the... More

Like many others have expressed, the abundance of bachelorette parties is extremely annoying. They can go anywhere, yet drive to the furthest end of the cape to be around people who don't want them there. Maybe someday they will realize this and stop going. They don't understand P-town at all. Anyway, if you can find a T-Dance that is not... More

Perfect location for daytime pool and sunning, the moving onto the T dance patio extravaganza every early evening! Great staff, and lots of friendly patrons! Nice pool area for the afternoon as well!

I've been attending the Boatslip's Tea Dance regularly for sixteen years, and there are plenty of good reasons to do so: the late-afternoon light in summer creates a magical ambience, the crowd of people invariably includes both sweet personalities and stunning physiques (sometimes combined in the same individual), the music is always fun and contemporary, and the long-term staff (especially...

Provincetown is one of the last gay havens left in the country and the Boatslip is an institution. What a great place to meet friends old and new while watching the sunlight reflect off the bay. I've been coming here for 25 years and the tea dance is a tradition. Strong drinks and friendly bartenders. But why why why are... More

Love Tea Dance at The Bostslip; however, the owner is not always nice. She initiated a confrontation with a guy on the beach who was flying a drone over 'her' venue. The screaming and finger pointing was over the top, unnecessary and unprofessional. That being said, the folks who work there are professional, friendly and helpful. Best on a less... More

Tea Dance - If you just want a place to drink and hangout, this is it. Tea Dance is really just get together event. Sure, there's a pool and a small dance floor, but most of the deck is a place to talk amongst the crowd. Docks - probably shouldn't go down there. Resort - rooms were clean and well... More
