Very nice establishment with owners and managers who know what they're doing. Our room was on the smaller side, but very comfortable and quiet despite being close to the street. Great extras like wine and snacks in the afternoon, and very nice breakfast in the morning. Thank you for a romantic getaway!

We were staying in the Boston area and decided on a last minute trip to Ptown. Found the Carpe Diem on the Hotel Tonight App and booked it immediately; it looked too good to be true! It's bang in the middle of town being only a few moments walk off Commercial Street, yet completely quiet and peaceful at night. We... More

Once again our stay at Carpe Diem was great. The grounds, room, staff, spa... everything is great. We have already booked next year and definitely recommend anyone staying here for their time in Ptown. If you can't stay here, at lest check out the spa and get a massage. See you next year!

Delighted to find Carpe Diem via the 'hotels tonight' app. As soon as we arrived we knew we'd struck lucky. What a truly lovely place. The atmosphere and energy of the guesthouse is so relaxed, warm and friendly. Very stylish in its decor yet so relaxing. Upon arrival it's like the sofas in the reception lounge call softly 'hi, glad... More

I stayed in the Thoreau cottage - well worth the price: a free standing cottage with private patio, outdoor shower and large (by P-Town standards) room and bath. The cottage and grounds are beautifully appointed with a lot of thought going into details. I've stayed at many places in Provincetown and my response to the decors is often "You guys... More

We had a lovely stay here for a couple of nights before 4th of July. It's right in the middle of town, easy to walk to everything. Included in the price is breakfast and afternoon wine, so this is right in line with places that are $30 or $40 more a night! We stayed in the Tennessee Williams room. It... More
