“Home away from home !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2011

This is our 2nd visit here and we enjoyed this stay just as much if not more than the first. Our room overlooking Commercial St and was clean and bright. Our hosts were attentive to us without smothering. We got such great personal service, as we have never gotten elsewhere. Free parking a short walk away was very nice.

Rich's early morning homemade pumpkin waffles and fresh coffee as well as his personal wakeup calls (requested by us) so we didn't miss the gorgeous sunrises made every morning perfect.

We will be back... hopefully sooner than later!

Room Tip: If you want to people watch, choose the rooms with the balconies.. Our room was spacious with a king...

I don't know if I've ever rated a business or personal accomodations as a 5. There's usually something not quite right whether it's a low-cost hotel or a high-end hotel in Moscow or Prague. The Lotus House is a 5 without question. Everything is well thought-out and it's evident that the owner has put a lot of thought and energy into the whole experience for her guests. Fantastic value.

It's located right in the center of P-town on Commercial Ave so if you enjoy the high level of activity and ease of getting in and out, it's perfect. We stayed for two days recently and were able to bop out for breakfast, chilling on the beach on the bayside, drinks, dinner, etc. A parking pass is available for the local commercial lot which is a two-minute walk away. Honestly, once you ditch you car you won't need it for the whole weekend. Bikes can easily and safely be parked in the back garden courtyard and will make getting around almost effortless, and fun.

The Lotus House is perfect; clean, fresh and casual. The place has been renovated and the rooms are fresh and well-appointed. Art on the walls is photography by one of the owners and is quite appropriate. The bed was firm and perfect. (Nothing worse than being in a good place with a bad bed!). Wide-screen, nice gas fireplace, bedroom sink, split-system AC, and refrig/freezer and beautiful tiled bath. There's a nice back deck for breakfast and hanging with coffee (the coffee is good) in the morning. The host, Rich, has a lot of information about the area, great places to eat, great bars and so forth and will really help to get you into the local scene quickly. We found him to be genuine, humorous, well-informed and very generous...I've never had a hotel or inn feel so welcoming in every way. We were a late-night arrival and Rich was still very warm, helpful and chill.

The enclosed back garden is a perfect little retreat with coffee or a book if you want a little space. Sunny in the morning and it has a nice little enclosed outdoor shower! This is clearly our "spot" in the center of town for the foreseeable future; we'll definitely be back.

Only slight caveat: if you are not into the loud night life, best to get a room on the back of the house, which will be quiet and still offer views of the monument and garden couryard.

Room Tip: Front of the house you will be able to people-watch on Commercial Ave but can be loud at night. Bac...

My wife and I stayed at the Lotus Guest House for our 2nd anniversary in September 2011. This was my first trip to Provincetown, MA and i was super excited about the trip. It just so happened it was going to rain the 3 day we were here, which meant we would spend the majority of our time in doors. Lucky for us, we choose the Lotus and here is why:

1) Management
The Manager Rich was the sunshine in our raining weekend! Rich was extremely welcoming and warm from the start. He made us feel like we were the only ones in the guest house and treated us like we were friends from out of town not paying customers.

2) The Room/Amenities
The Rooms and bathrooms were very clean and modern. The beds were extremely comfy and the fireplace just set the mood for a romantic evening, The fresh baked MUFFINS was my favorite!!!

3)The Location
The Lotus is located smack in the middle of everything. no need to drive your car.

I would recommend the Lotus Guest House to everyone. They exceeded my expectation in hospitality.

Room Tip: Rooms are all nice but if you desire a room with more space it is recommended that you ask for a roo...

We stayed for one night in August 2011. The first pleasant surprise was that the Lotus Guesthouse is in the centre of Provincetown, on Commercial Street, and very close to the harbour where the high speed ferries arrive from Boston. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, providing advice on the local area. We stayed in one of the cheaper rooms with a shared bathroom - everything was nicely decorated and clean, very pleasant. Other bonuses are free wireless internet access, an outside terrace and coffee and breakfast. Thoroughly recommend the Lotus Guesthouse.

We have been coming to Provincetown for years, but just discovered this guest house.
It was just renovated, and it is beautifully furnished. We had a king bed, fireplace, cool bathroom, fridge, and a granite bar.
The staff is friendly and helpful, and the location is the best.
We'll be back this summer.

We just found this place after being canceled from a more expensive hotel. This place is brand new and has a cool contemporary interior.
Big king rooms with fireplace, central AC/heat, and really cool bathroom.
Breakfast of fresh baked muffins and more. Hosts were helpful and accommodating but not on top of us.
We will be back.

This is our third time back at the Lotus Guest House and it was as great as ever.

The location is the best, as everything is within walking distance, so we have made the Lotus our P'town place.

Rich and Todd were great hosts as usual. They helped with restaurant reservations and suggestions for afternoon activities. We went on a whale watch, and a bike trip in the National Seashore (both highly recommended).

We loved our room, it had a king sized bed, a couch, and a fireplace, and the bathroom is new and clean with a really cool big round shower. It was so cozy to wake up to a romantic fire in the morning.

The breakfast was more than enough to start the day. Fresh baked muffins (two different kinds), fresh bagels, and an assortment of yogurts. One day Rich made brownies in the afternoon as well.

We took advantage of a fall special with a free night on top of the discounted rate, but even in the summer we find the Lotus to be great value for a huge room with a king sized bed and a reading area with leather chairs.

We will definitely return again and again.
