Reviewed August 20, 2012

Stayed here for 7 days... It was awesome. It is right in the middle of everything. Rich and Elliot were great, hanging out the back patio, just relaxing, was one of the best part. They offered many suggestions on where to go, especially where the locals go. Room was spotless everyday. Rich even walked us out to the marina, we were treated like family.

Room Tip: front rooms can be a little noisy from street traffic.

stayed at Lotus Guest House for 2 nights and enjoyed it very much, one night was very cold and the next was very warm, unpredictable Cape weather. fortunately had a nice fireplace in our room so we were nice and cozy, The staff at the guest house were very helpful and offered many suggestions. would definitely stay there again, only thing is I would stay in a room at the back of the house, the front rooms can be a little noisy with the Commercial Street activity.

This was my first visit to Lotus and it won't be my last...From the moment I got there, Rich the house manager, was like an angel. He was warm, hospitable and took care of any needs I had. The warm hot muffins and bagels and fresh coffee in the morning were delicious. The house is spotless, everything is new and well cared for and the fireplaces in many of the rooms made for a warm and toasty fall trip. Because it is off season, I was able to park right out front ....another plus for anyone looking for a fall or winter get away...I will be back!!!

Room Tip: Room 25 has its own porch right on Commercial St....a plus!!

We have stayed here twice and this time we brought our friends from Texas. Owner and manager very helpful, wait on you when needed, make you reservations for dinner and are warm and friendly people. They are centrally located on Commercial Street and have great parking where you can leave your car and not worry until it's time to go home. We will be back of course!

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...
