“A Place I wish I could Keep Secret”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

Spent a week at the Benchmark inn during Fourth of July week and was so sad to leave. The beautiful colonial house, restored to perfection by the innkeepers, was a quiet island from the hustle and bustle of Commercial street. Dan and Daniel raise inn keeping to the level of art: they are attentive but never intrusive, and they attend to every detail with a sense of perfection. I am missing their homemade breads and preserves every morning since my return.

I would like to keep this place a secret so that I will always be able to get a room, but I can't do that in good conscience. It is too wonderful.

Travelling a lot in the States I've never been in any place of this quality. The house is beautiful, 1 minute away from Commercial Street yet very quiet at night. Dan and Daniel go above and beyond to give you the best stay. From delicious homemade breakfast to the little terrace at your disposal for a nice book read after a long day, from reserving tables in the best local restaurants to give you si chairs and umbrellas for the beach. I wish I could visit them more often!

This property was awesome. Dan and Daniel are very nice. They are the perfect Bed and Breakfast owners--very accomodating and yet not too intrusive. One other place i stayed at P-town, the owners made you feel very uncomfortable, as if you are encroaching on their home. Dan and Daniel did not and were very cordial and businesslike at the same time.

The positives:
They pick you up and give you a ride back to the airport.
The rooms are super clean and spacious--i was in room 3.
The location is amazing. Its close to everything, yet quiet, if you want to relax and read.
Cute little courtyard.
The crew who cleans does a very good job.
You can tell its very efficiently run.
Internet access.
High quality Bose system and the TV was great.
Safe in the room for my passport.


I hate to say this is a negative because its not: the breakfast was good, although it could use a bit more options. Not as great as some other B&B places I've stayed. What was there was very good, but it was rather simple.

Great B&B on the west end of Ptown. The rooms and the amenities surpass the usual B&B's Very luxurious and comfortable. Great location close but not too close to the hustle and bustle. Great hosts who are helpful and friendly and Handsome!

My partner and I stayed for five nights at the Benchmark Inn over the 4th of July and had a terrific time. Daniel, one of the Innkeepers, is a real gem. He told us about the "must see" places to visit as well as "the ones" to skip. He was funny and charming and his recommendations for restaurants were equally as helpful. The rooms were well equipped and very clean. The breakfasts/homemade pastries were yummy and their European coffee was an added treat.

I highly recommend the Benchmark Inn and plan to visit again in the fall. Linda

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights this past June. We had a wonderful experience. Dan and Daniel were friendly and accommodating without being intrusive (which can sometimes happen at a small B&B). The breakfast was superb! We booked Room 7 because we read about the view and we weren't disappointed. From what we could tell Room 7 and the Penthouse were the only two will the full deck and panoramic views (which was important to us). If we go back (and I want to) we would probably get the pent house or a larger room. We were traveling with a lot of luggage so it was difficult to maneuver in the small space. That being said, if you're looking for a romantic space and a great view, Room 7 is lovely. You really can't go wrong at Benchmark!

My partner and I spent our first time away in too many months and enjoyed every moment. The B&B was perfect - comfy, immaculately clean, an easy walk to great restaurants and Commercial Street. The hosts Dan and Daniel were so lovely and friendly and hospitable. The breakfast was delish and Daniel's homemade whole grain bread and homemade jam were perfect for our fussy palates. We were very sad to leave and hope to return. Thank you D's for a great long weekend in PTown.

Room Tip: we were in room 2 which was upstairs and had a little porch -- was a nice spot for morning coffee an...
