4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

This is more of a restaurant with a few rooms attached rather than a full service hotel. But the location is fantastic, staff friendly, rooms spotless and the breakfast is outstanding even if the coffee is better taken across the road. So what is not to like? Not much except the rooms are small and not particularly well sound proofed.... More

This quaint Cape Cod inn is just the perfect place. Centrally located in the East End of PTown we stayed in a dog friendly room that was spacious and had the most comfortable bed. We would get up in the morning and bring our dog across the street and hang out on the beach after a delicious cup of coffee... More

The Waterford Inn is a lovely vintage inn with updated decor and wonderful service. You can tell this Inn has been here since the 1800's, but it's exceptionally well-maintained, with modern chic decor and updated finishes. You'll love the antique-feel of the room, but better yet: the rooms have private bathrooms (a luxury that is obviously rare in many of... More

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.
