“If you're OK with noise, this is a wonderful place to stay!”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

I love the Lotus Guest House. It's right on Commercial Street, so it is SO convenient to run in and out all day while hanging out in town. However, because it's right on Commercial, you'll have to expect street noise at night. We were pretty much able to sleep through it, but there's no getting around it if you want to stay smack dab in the middle of Commercial. The hotel is immaculately clean, the owner and and her associates are SO helpful, SO friendly, and act as a concierge, directing you to the best parties, restaurants, clubs, beaches, etc. Highly recommend!

The Lotus Guest House is located in the heart of Provincetown, Cape Cod and my wife, daughter and I spent a vey relaxing Easter weekend at this comfortable, clean, good value and friendly guest house. Our room, a double bedded twin, was on the 3rd floor to the front and we had views along Commercial Street and over to the harbour area. We received a warm welcome from Rich, the cheery manager and general factotum, and he highlighted all that there is to do in Provincetown ... and there's lots to do!

Room Tip: Rooms to the back may be quieter in the busy summer but our room was to the front and we had a great...

We have stayed here many times and love the place. The rooms are contemporary and comfortable. If you are lucky enough to get the front room with the deck that overlooks Commercial Street, you won't be sorry! It is worth the extra money to sit on the deck with a drink and "people watch". Two thumbs up!

We stayed here for 5 nights and it was my first time in Provicetown (as a plus, there was a special on their website where if you stay 4 nights you get a 5th night free). The location is perfect, we walked right off the Ferry and found Lotus near the end of the dock off of Commercial Street. It was close to all of the best restaurants and shopping. The owners were very friendly and we often chatted with them and they gave us tips on where to go.

My first thought of the room was that it was perfectly clean, more so than any other room I've stayed in (seriously). All the fixtures in the bathroom were new and spotless in every corner, and every day they made up the room back to that level of cleanliness.

The only thing we were not thrilled with was the breakfast. I read some previous reviews and was expecting a hot breakfast or homemade pancakes. There was coffee, a few muffins/bagels, and yogurt. Not terrible but we really expected more. We preferred to go out and get breakfast at one of the many restaurants in town instead.

I highly recommend staying here, especially for first-timers. Friends told us to stay here and we were happy we did.

Room Tip: We had room 23, which was a little small but had everything we needed including our own bathroom. I...

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.
