Even though the staff was great, the property really needs some updating. I realize it is advertised as "quaint", but just be aware that it is outdated & could use a good interior cleaning & refurbishment. Surprised Trip Advisor gave it a "3". Good view & location, though, right on the water.

It was amazing to wake up and look out the window and see the sunrise over the sea. Head down the charming streets to get your morning coffee at the local deli and sit by the sea and enjoy you breakfast. It's an extremely friendly atmosphere and I would go back any time.

Very small room in Provincetown. Room was clean, but when we made the reservation we were doing it thinking that this was a typical hotel room. The room did not have a private bathroom, it was shared with the other 4 rooms on the same floor. Also, parking was about a 1/4 of a mile from the hotel. It was... More

This is a quaint Cape Cod hotel. It was located well for our conference at the Provincetown Inn. Easy walking distance. Unfortunately we were next to someone who watched TV at odd times and we heard everything day and night.

We stayed at the Masthead on our first time visit to Provincetown. 41A was recently renovated and a beautiful little cottage, just right for 2 couples. Both bedrooms had new queen beds, and were very comfortable. The bedrooms are not very large though, and have small closets. The storage drawers under the bed could be utilized for storage space to... More
