“Everything was just perfect”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

This nice bulding is already very welcoming and the personal welcome with an incredible good introducting about the house and its surrounding was perfect. This Inn fully deserves a "10". Everything was just a perfect as you expect it. If we would go back to Provincetown, we for sure will knock on the Benchmark Inn's door to stay a few nights.
The rooms was furnished very nice, the bathroom equipped with the nice little "thing" everybody appreciates.
All morning we enjoyed a hearty breakfast together with other travellers from around the world. The common room could be used from 8am to 8pm for a coffee from a Swiss coffee machine.
Unfortunately we already had to leave after 4 nights.

We had the opportunity to make a quick visit to P-town. Found the Benchmark Inn via a web search, and was very fortunate with my selection. The location and amenities were excellent. Daniel, the Inn Keeper, is well suited for his role. He was the perfect host. Very good value, highly recommended! Looking forward to a return visit.

Our visit to Benchmark Inn was very spur of the moment. We had not stayed here for quite sometime when the property was originally bought and renovated (by the previous owner Parker). This being quite a few years ago,the former owner had quite the vision in creating a first class B & B in Ptown ---- concerning the property, layout, interior design, ammenities, and more. This was at the onset of sweeping change and what customers wante. As with many inns like this, over the years becuase it was heavily used it began to look worn and old.

Fortunately, the new owners Daniel and Dan have a new vision breathing new life to the Benchmark Inn and improving what was already there! Daniel, the Innkeeper Manager is a very warm and welcoming host! He makes it a point to greet his new guests on their arrival. It's just as if you were being welcomed to a friend's home. Benji, the manager, was very good about giving us a quick tour and informing us about us the "rules" per se in a nice way. He did take us to the common area where guests are welcome to coffee, juice, snacks, etc. during their stay. Quite a nice ammenity compared to other Ptown B & B's that want to charge you for a bottle of water (They know who they are!).

The rooms are beautifully appointed. Daniel and Dan are updating color schemes, art, and much more to feel modern, interesting, and comfortable. Room 1 has a very comfortable king size bed with fabulous million count thread sheets and just the right pillows - lots too! The bathroom had fluffy clean smelling bath towels, hand towels, and wash towels (No bleach smell here!). The bathroom ammenities: soap and body gel, shampoos, conditioner, mending kit, make-up removing packets were nicely scented and definitely a step above what many other Inns are providing in P-town. An added plus was the fireplace and built in ironing board with iron. Quite the hair dryer in the bathroom. The place was impecably clean!

The room had a small wet bar area with everything one could want regarding glasses, cups, cork screw, ice bucket, and more! And I'm certain if they did not have it, and we asked, they would have gladly provided it.

Daniel also made it a point to greeet his guests at breakfast and assist them with whatever they wanted. His mingling with the guests was a nice touch. I'd strongly recommend staying here, and I'm sure we'll be back!

Room Tip: Room 1 has a cozy semi-private porch area with a small table and chairs. Weather permitting it would...

We can't say enough good about Benchmark Inn -- the location, the amenities and the staff were all fantastic. We enjoyed the 'deluxe continental breakfast' every morning before heading out on foot and/or on our bikes to explore the local bikepaths in the dunes. Wonderful to have a cozy room, complete with fireplace, BluRay TV (great movie library downstairs), and coffee on demand to retreat to at the end of the day. We enjoyed talking with Daniel (co-owner) and Benji (winter manager), both of whom were delightful, frienly and informative. Wonderful experience all around. We are looking forward to returning.

Room Tip: We were in Room 5 -- super layout.

This is a wonderful reasonably-priced little inn that caters to your every need. I stayed in Room 2 and I highly recommend it. There is a little deck with table and chairs overlooking the bay in one direction and MacMillan Wharf in the other. The room itself was well planned out with excellent lighting options, a huge and comfortable bed, plenty of pillows, a gas fireplace, and a well-outfitted wet bar. The bathroom was quite small but very serviceable and came with special extras like a sewing kit, make-up remover packets, and robes. Everything was very clean.

There is a common room on the main floor with lots of DVDs, games, and information on the area. This is where a continental breakfast is served in the morning. On my visit, the breakfast is adequate, but not particularly special. If you are a healthnut like me, you may want to supplement the offerings with food that you have brought with you.

The manager was extremely helpful and available to assist in any way with information on the inn and the Provincetown area.

Parking is a bit tricky, so be prepared to park off-site if the inn is full. The inn is centrally located so you won't need your car very much once you are settled in.

Room Tip: Number 2 is a great room. It can run hot, but you can open the windows.

Great B&B, walking distance from all great attractions in P-town. The rooms are super clean, cozy and wonderful. Mine had a fireplace and a jacuzzi. They think of details to make it a great experience. The innkeeper was super friendly. I had to leave early in the morning prior to breakfast, there was a bag of goodies for my trip home. It's that kind of place where you become instant friends with the innkeepers. A home away from home.

We were treated like royalty from day one! Daniel was very informative and made our stay in Provincetown special. The room was beautiful and we had access to a lovely terrace overlooking the coast. The inn is very close to all that Provincetown has to offer and recommendations from the staff on where to eat and what to do were gladly welcomed. The breakfast hit the spot in the mornings and Daniel checked in on us everyday to see if we needed anything. Thanks for a quality and peaceful stay Benchmark Inn!
