This place is truly a gem. We were graciously greeted from the moment we stepped in the door. The room was bright and clean. We were minutes from downtown Provincetown. The walk was easy. Breakfast was excellent. We would definitely stay there again. Thank you,Thomas, for making our stay a pleasant one. Pat A. Webster, NY

After many stays across the country, this the first time I've felt inspired to leave a review. This place is simply wonderful. It has the charm and quaint qualities desired in P-town- centrally located right of commercial st, but removed from the street through its entry sequence. I had what I assume is a base level room; third floor, no... More

The location turned out to be perfect and the Inn was very sweet. Room was clean, sheets were great, and a/c was cold. You have a little garden to walk through to get to the front door which was beautiful and inviting. Some caveats: We were on the 3rd floor which wasn't ideal and there was no coffee maker in...

We stayed at the waterford inn for a week, choosing the best room they have, a "luxury suite with balcony" facing the bay. The balcony is there as well as the bay. But to seat in the balcony means to deal with a noisy fan coming from the kitchen of the restaurant they have in front of the Inn. And... More

We really enjoyed our 3 days at The Waterford. Our room was spacious and very comfortable and very clean. The bed linens and pillows were amazing! Best of all was the hotel staff. They were very accommodating with everything: luggage, suggestions of places to go and things to do, and very pet friendly. I highly recommend the Waterford and the... More

Stayed here with my spouse 7/26 for a couple of nights and had a wonderful time. The hotel is located right in town so all the commercial street attractions were right there. Our room (#10) was at the front of the building on the 3rd floor and i would recommend the room. A king bed with fresh white sheets and... More

I love this hotel. We came for the Cape Dance Festival again.We did not get the same gorgeous balcony room as last time and I thought too bad but when we arrived and walked in I LOVED our room. Number 8. Spacious and comfortable with fewer stairs to climb! The hotel is quiet quaint, central and simple and the staff... More

We've been going to the Cape for 40 years and this is our favorite place. The new management has done a great job with both the Inn and Spindlers. The place is in great shape, the food was excellent and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. Keep up the good work, can't wait to get back next year.

My family and I just stayed at the Waterford and we were very impressed. The place is under new ownership as of last fall and they do a fantastic job. If you want a great place to stay at a reasonable price, this is it. Enjoy.
