It's a shame to downgrade this place as other than the fact that the onsite nightclub (The Club Purgatory) bangs out music until 1am every day, it's charming. Old style charm, fantastic location and parking out front make this a great venue...if you want banging music until 1am. Perhaps should make this more prominent online where I saw little if... More

I have been going to the Gifford House Inn for many years -- since the 1970s. It has been a good standby for availability when other places are full or are too expensive. It's still, comparatively speaking, "affordable" compared with lots of other choices -- and the location is great, with parking. This past time I got the worst room... More

Had not stayed here before, however, I stayed here during the Hallowe'n weekend. A great place and reasonably priced. Had breakfast in the restaurant, it was soooo good, I didn't care if I ate the rest of the day! Plenty of activities on site. Staff was superb! Thanks for a great time!

My wife and I stayed here for one night over Columbus day weekend. It is located on Bradford and provides nice and easy parking. We got a good rate for a night stay there. The front desk staff was very helpful and kind. The downfall which they do a good job letting you know before you book is there is... More

This is a reasonable no frills cleanly pleasant historic Inn. My only caution is they have a club in the basement that's noisy until 1 am. You just need to get in after 1. I've stayed here in the past and will again. The staff is friendly and the location great.

The location of Gifford House was excellent – Commerce street is just down the slight hill, the harbor is a short walk, as is the jetty. There is free and convenient parking. The breakfast leaves much to be desired.

Spacious, light and airy, well maintained feel to the property. Good basic continental breakfast provided of coffee, tea and juice, toast, muffins and cereals available to eat inside or dine out on the spacious terrace. Very central location, nightclub and bar within immediate vicinity, most places easily accessed on foot, including the harbour for numerous boat trips and whale watching.... More

Friends and I were recently lamenting how young people really cannot afford to stay in Provincetown any more. Gone are the hippies, gone are the young gays and lesbians, gone are the fishermen and most of the Portugese families. Very few legacies still exist, and I have to applaud the Gifford House for keeping their rates extremely low, their rooms... More
