My friend and I cannot express how much we LOVED staying at Benchmark Inn! AMAZING Swiss B&B in PTown!! Dan & Daniel (owners and hosts) were perceptive to any needs and always walked around smiling. The morning breakfast bar is just what one needs after a night out on Commercial St. AND, the private entrance into our room added that "feels like home" touch we enjoy.

We will definitely book again - such a pleasure doing biz with Benchmark Inn.

Room Tip: I recommend the room we stayed in... #2

Benchmark Inn is THE best place to stay in Provincetown. The Inn is meticulously maintained. The rooms beautifully designed, incredibly comfortable, and have amazing views. The location is on a quiet street, just a short distance to Commercial Street, art galleries, and restaurants. Dan and Daniel are THE most gracious hosts, so warn and personable. And I don't know of any other Inn that serves fresh baked Zopf (Swiss Braided bread), fresh preserves, and delicious Swiss cheese on Sunday morning! I didn't want our stay to end!! Thank you Dan and Daniel!

We selected the Benchmark Inn because of its proximity to Commercial Street, fine dining, and the beach, and we could not have made a better choice. We parked our car upon arrival and did not move it until we left. Outside staircases provide access to the rooms, as well as through the front entrance and common area. We had a small balcony with a view of the ocean off our room (#2) with a quaint table and chairs where we could sit and relax. Daniel and Dan were amazing serving a small light breakfast of fresh fruit, cheeses, cold cuts and other items each morning for breakfast. They were quick to suggest restaurants for dinner and made reserverations for us. The outdoor garden and lounge chairs provided another place to relax and enjoy. The room was perfect with a small wet bar and fridge. We will be back again next year!

Room Tip: Room #2 had a king size bed and small wetbar. There was an entrance from outdoors with a private ve...

Recently remodeled, very fresh modern room with European flair. Great amenities with wet bar, mini fridge, and utensils; a nice surprise. Small room, yet comfortable. The only drawback was limited storage in room for large items such as suitcases. Coat hooks would a plus for wet raincoats. Room lights all had dimmers, so a cozy atmosphere was easy to create. High quality cold breakfast in very pleasant sun filled common room. Innkeepers, Daniel & Dan were warm and friendly and offered advice and assistance from a locals' standpoint on P-Town activities, restaurants, etc. Highly recommended; we hope return soon.

I've been visiting Provincetown for the last 18 years, trying out different places. Not anymore, it hit the spot for me. Clean, cool, smart, respectful. Yes, great location and views included. A standard for excellence, a "hidden" gem. Think of a watch, only Swiss Made.

My husband and I went to p'town for the weekend from Boston and absolutely loved it. The owners are wonderful, they picked us up at the ferry and dropped us back off (even through its only about a four block walk), had tons of suggestions for things to do and places to eat, and made themselves available at all times. The accommodations are perfect - the whole thing is very European as the owners are Swiss - for downtown p'town. The B&B is perfectly located in the middle of the Commercial Street downtown area, the rooms are spotless with roomy bathrooms and plenty of little knick knacks you might need during your stay. Breakfast is complimentary with freshly baked bread by the owners, fresh fruit, yogurt, Swiss cheeses (of course), and freshly ground coffee. All and all, our stay far exceeded our expectations and I would refer this little gem to anyone.
