This is the second time I've stayed here and each time was terrific. The staff and owners are pleasant and try to meet any need. The evening wine and cheese social is brilliant as is the breakfast. Rooms are very clean and well appointed though the shower is a bit tight. Parking is the only real issue. They do have...

Lovely weekend at this well-run guesthouse inn. We had four rooms as we were attending a family wedding nearby. The rooms were all beautiful, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious. Friendly, attentive staff and a very welcoming atmosphere. Highly recommend!

Decided on an off-season night to Provincetown and happened upon Carole Diem. Our first impression was made when speaking with Stephen at registration ( he's also co-owner). Outstanding service and excellent comfort were all that followed. Very close to everything on Commercial Street. From every detail- plush sheets and towels, decor and most impressive friendliness from all staff. Breakfast was...

Every time my big family visits, I send them to Carpe Diem. I hang out with them there and always get a massage. There are a lot of choices of places to stay here in our town, but I find that Eddy and his crew take really good care of my 90 year old mother! Great breakfast too.

I've stayed here a number of times since my first time in Feb. 2013...and it's even better! The facility continues to be GREAT! The hot tub, steam room, saunas and spa are AMAZING! (Still!) Very relaxing and peaceful getaway...and I was glad to return. Starting with the booking process (I booked directly via phone), the owners warmly welcomed me again....

Our third visit to Carpe Diem, stayed couple nights in February. Love Eddie who greets and checks us into any one of the lovely, upscale and renovated rooms. Danny is the cook (chef really) and had delicious breakfasts laid out, great eggs any way you'd like. The hot tub and steam-sauna rooms are our favorite. Did I mention how clean...

My fiancé and I came down for a weekend and the only thing we can say is simply amazing. The nicest staff. They made us feel like family. Wine and cheese hour was simply the best. We met so many new people, well, friends now. It is a testament to the staff that we met everyone. The spa is magnificent...

We had a great stay here! The owners and staff are lovely, the room was comfortable and the spa is amazing. Really nice breakfast too -- even when we were the only guests they put out a full spread. We'd definitely return.

Stayed 2 nights in this wonderful inn, complete with a spa/outdoor hot tub. Absolutely lovely rooms and breakfast included (cooked to order). Inn keepers so friendly and welcoming. Couldn't have been better.
