Aubrey's review below is pretty accurate as far as looks. I was confusing it with the Harbor hotel where I stayed about 6 years ago and while you can use the Harbor's pool, this place is shabbier. Even tho it was one of the lower priced hotels, it's not worth $165 a nite that 's for sure (but I guess... More

We essentially booked this place for a weekend in P-town because it was one of the few affordable places with any vacancy. We groaned when pulled into the parking lot. The views of the bay are nice, and the location is close and accessible to the center of town by car or bus (1 and 3/4 mile walk). The place... More

The Breakwater is the way motels used to be before chains took them over--parking space in front of your room, furniture and furnishings that look distinctive (if old), a window unit air conditioner, a TV that is not a flat screen. On the other hand, the bay is right across the street, so even the laziest vacationer can drag himself... More

My boyfriend and I came to Provincetown for my birthday and for 4to of July weekend. We were supposed to come for just camping but because of the severe rain that we had the first night, we couldn't stay at the campground so we needed a quick place to stay at with a roof. We found a room available for... More

Staff are down right unfriendly and unacommodating. The beds are so uncomfortable. Burn holes in linens, carpets filthy. Not sure how the board of health has not shut this motel down. And to boot they ask a high price for a room like it's a suite. Ughhhh. Do not stay here. Caveat Emptor for sure!!!.

I had read many reviews of the Breakwater before booking and I was a little skeptical about it. We were taking our dog with us and weren't sure if she would like the beach so we didn't want to book a pricey hotel if we were going to have to leave. The room we stayed in was very small which...

I have probably stayed at this place 15 times. I like it because it is in front of the beach, animal friendly, and affordable by Ptown standards. The last time I went we had an issue with our room which was out of the owners control. The brother and sister team running the motel showed us that our business mattered... More

My wife and I are avid runners and cyclists and the Breakwater Motel was perfect for us. Once we parked we never drove our car again until we left. We cycled to four of the major beaches and used the shuttle (bus stop right outside our door) to go into PTown in the evening. What we liked: WiFi, bay swimming... More

This is a Motel not a hotel. It was wonderful but these are the kind of places we love. We look for the retro type motel. Beds were comfortable clean rooms. Directly across from cape cod bay, if you are going to commercial street everyday you will need a car or take the bus which stops right in front of... More
