“I Loved the Breakwater!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

I recently got back from a weekend getaway and stayed for 3 nights. The Owner Susie was most friendly and helpful to all my needs. The room was dated, but clean and the large mini fridge big enough for a week of food and drinks. The bathroom was clean and the water pressure was fantastic. It is a no frills motel that has the most stunning view of the ocean. I will be back next year! plus it has great parking, the shuttle stops every 25 minutes into town, and you can bring your dog. Tell them Kevin with the bad foot sent you!

Checked in...carpeted floor was wet, not wet from kids feet at the beach wet, but dumped a mop bucket wet. The room smelled of urine and mold. The a/c did not work at all. There was bloody finger prints on the wall. Very dated. Wi-Fi only available at the front office with the written rule "no downloading." Positives to be fair----clean linens, great location, a view. I constantly travel for business- this is the second worst place I have ever stayed in probably over 350 hotels.

Just stayed at the Breakwater in P Town for the weekend and calling it a dump is putting it mildly. I travel extensively and have stayed at no less than 500 hotels/motels over my lifetime and this one was easily the worst. The entire facility is outdated and old. I guarantee the décor, furnishings, bedspreads, carpet, etc, are the original ones from when this place was constructed. Housekeeping knocked off by noon so our room wasn't even cleaned. Sadly enough, it was as pricey as other, much nicer places. I strongly advise NOT booking a room here.

Room Tip: Book somewhere else

Terribly overpriced for what you get. Lumpy bed, dirty carpet (your feet get black walking inside), locker room smell, weak A/C, ran out of hot water in the shower. At least the bus comes by, as the hotel is on the outskirts of town and not within walking distance.

I have stayed at this motel with my Newf mix atleast 6 times. The staff is friendly the rooms are clean (dated) and cleaned daily, the location in my opinion can not be beat with the dog friendly beach in front of the hotel and the center of Ptown only a 30 minute walk away. Also this is the least expensive animal friendly place I have found in Ptown.

Staying off season , mid september, you can't beat the price of $65 a night. Room # 1 at the back, had parking lot view. Wi-fi was good. Small room but clean, no frills. Kind of far from center of town, but quick bike ride. Quiet room. "Beach" across street was a joke. Motel next door has restaurant, lounge, movie night and $6.95 continental b'kfast, if you want skip going into town.

In some locations a motel like this would be an average value. In Provincetown it is an excellent value. In addition this motel has a very strong assett. Susie, one of the owners who works the front desk, is the friendliest and most helpful motel staff person I have met. She made us feel welcome. She was a good resource for the area. She significantly improved the quality of our experience. The room was fine for our family of 4. I don't recall any problems. The internet and air conditioning worked fine. The room smelled OK. The beach across the road was fun for beachcombing. We walked into town both days. One day we took a taxi home. They let us leave our car in the parking lot after we checked out for one final visit into Provincetown. I will definitely stay here again.
