“An Affordable Oasis and Hidden Gem at the Far Tip of the Cape”
Reviewed July 22, 2009

I love the Inn at the Moors.

I've just returned from 5 glorious summer days/nights there, in the peace, quiet and priceless atmosphere of "the moors" - a vast stretch of marshland and sand dunes that reaches to the very end tip of Cape Cod. Yes, it's an old fashioned Cape Cod motel.

Though we go to "P-town" every summer, we usually go upscale, paying as much as $400/night for a guestroom in a very nice B&B downtown. FORGET IT! We saved $200/night! (well, didn't actually save, we spent on lobster (pan roasted lobster, lobster salad, lobster bisque and lobster benedict.....oh, and lots of gin & tonics!)

Pay Under $200 at the Moors for an upper deck room with your own balcony, and breezes blowing through your room day and night as you look out over the sunset, Great Blue Herons, and calm solitude that used to be Cape Cod.....and it's 5 min by car, or 20 min walking, from the crush of humanity, fudge shops, and drag queens that is Commercial St, Ptown in the Summer.

Right, no luxury sheets, no upscale shampoo - but very clean, wonderfully friendly and welcoming staff, a small but HEATED! swimming pool with few or no other bathers (there are only about 20 rooms total) You can also easily access your car in your own space just outside of your room, also a rarity in crowded Ptown.

Keep cool drinks in your little room fridge and shut off the Blackberry. Oh, the National Seashore beach is just down the road, or hike the breakwater out to Long Point around the corner. ...and listen for the distant Fog Horn across the Moors. Just awesome.

As one who has spent time on the Cape every summer since childhood, I believe the Inn at the Moors will be where I stay on every visit to follow. No more $400 night rooms in snooty B&Bs. A wonderful experience, nice people and GREAT VALUE for Provincetown.

We choose this hotel (which is really a motel, but its stuff doesn't say that) because of its location facing the watery marshes and beaches on the quiet tip of the Cape, and because we are gay and it is run by women. But don't go unless you have a car and/or bikes . Or if you like a bit of a welcome and an interest in your needs. Such as help checking in for your return flight: what a palaver, you would think you had asked them to do your tax return. No sense of a management policy: don't think they get many bookings from Europeans. Don't go without a cellphone and a laptop. In fact...don't go at all if you are not American, because they are not really set up for you: no proper information pack, so if you don't eg already know the phone system, you can't work it out. They told us there were buses to get around, just wait and you could flag it down: wrong! (the bus season had not started, so we would have stood there for 5 days). When we asked for the (only) hairdryer they told us to be sure to bring it back. We could see from how they were with the American guests that they could be laid back -friendly, it just wasn't extended to us, felt like we were excluded rather than welcome (though one of them did warm up towards the end of our stay). Decor etc Ok but...not as nice as the pictures, view great, nice pool: cannot really walk to beaches, long slog, and no really handy bus service even when it does run. Next time we will stay in the town.

Provincetown: INN AT THE MOORS : a great experience

My wife and I spent 3 nights in September at the Inn. The view from the room was spectacular, especially at sunset. Our room was very clean and we loved having a kingsized bed. We also enjoyed the chairs out on the deck to really breathe in the sea air and watch the herons and other water birds.
The breakfast was available all morning 7:30 to 11 and consisted of good coffee, fruit, yogurt, hard boiled egg and a nice tasting pastry. We liked the fact that the food was portable since we spent most of our days on the many nearby beaches.
Without a doubt we will return to the Inn at the Moors. We had a great experience there.

Per recommendation from my sister I booked a week at this Inn this August. What a wonderful place! The people are friendly, the area, gorgeous. I'll return next year for sure. I felt rested, ready to return to the real world after a week. What's also great is that it's a short trip from Boston so it's easy to get to at all times of the year.

A definite thumb's up.

I have been coming to the Inn at The Moors for two years now. My partner and I absolutely cherish this place for its totally stunning view of the Provincetown Bay and the sand dunes. There is no other place in town that has such an amazing view and is so affordable--it is a nice, tucked away little secret that I am happy to tell people about. The sunsets there are unforgettable. We definitely recommend kicking back on the deck. The Inn at The Moors is quiet and peaceful... We enjoy the privacy that the rooms offer while also getting a chance to socialize occasionally with guests if we like in the lobby and sometimes on our deck. The rooms themselves also have an awesome view. We watched the most stunning thunderstorm from the room... just incredible. There is never a shortage of things to look at and be inspired by.

We like the rooms a lot... even before the Inn was renovated this year, we really found them to be clean, the maid service to be good and fast, and we had the right amount of privacy. The mattresses this year are great and very, very comfortable and the air conditioning make for a very comfortable stay. The breakfast is certainly satisfying... coffee cake, yogurt, juice, coffee, fruit, and more... I have come to love their coffee cake... the perfect treat before heading off on an outdoor adventure on the Cape. Herring Cove Beach is just a five minute walk, and town center is a ten or fifteen minute walk... there is plenty of parking... the pool is great fun... now that the Inn has been renovated... the rooms are definitely brighter and sunnier to be in... they definitely feel uplifting as the paint just seems to reflect the sunlight pouring in just the right way. And they feel clean and fresh... the price is a good deal considering you get a private bath, gorgeous view, breakfast, parking, and a quiet place to stay. I definitely recommend staying here... have stayed at many places in ptown, including some of the nicer, expensive ones... and Inn at The Moors is definitely my favorite and comparable to the best--with better prices and a better view.

After viewing the nice looking photos online, I was disappointed when I arrived to find room with nasty carpet, a room that was not clean, and a bathroom that you needed flip flops to walk in.

I would recommend staying elsewhere, even if you have to pay a bit more. Because it felt like something could crawl on me at any moment, I could hardly sleep in the beds.

Let's start with some positives for the Inn:

1) The heated pool was a plus for P-town in the summer, especially if you have children;
2) The location was beautiful with stunning views of the moors, dunes, and Long Point lighthouse. You can also walk out to Long Point from the Inn when the tide is down which is truly beautiful. Be prepared for this walk though; it's over a mile and can be hot and tricky (mostly walking on rocks).

Sadly, we were disappointed with the Inn as a place to stay for more than a night. It has recently been renovated which must have improved it considerably but the cleaning standards seriously diminish this effect. Our room was dusty and moldy, and the bathroom smelled like stale urine and mold, with visible signs of rust and dirt, not to mention several dead flies all over the room. There was an old carpet on the floor which was filthy and smelly, making it hard for us to allow our young son to play on the floor as he does at home.

The breakfast was also disappointing. We were looking forward to fresh fruit and pastries (as the Inn's website promises) but we were instead met with bananas and store-bought pound cakes every day, which might be ok for some but given the price ($159 per night), we expected a little more effort. We ended up getting breakfast in town most days which was an added expense.

Overall, we liked the area, with the Inn being close to a public beach on the grounds of the Provincetown Inn and walking distance to both Herring Cove Beach and Long Point Lighthouse and its surrounding beaches; however, we hope that the Inn's keepers consider ways to make their guests feel more "at home" without having to worry about mold and a dirty bathroom.
