We loved this town, and the experiences here. This hotel was an amazing find. The rooms were so pretty, and we got the suite which was really nice. They have a heated pool, volleyball nets, shuffleboard, bbq's, horseshoes and a fire pit for everyone use. The lady at the front desk advised us on using the public transit which saved us a fortune. The breakfast was really nice. We had a great time and the atmosphere of this place is awesome. We met all sorts of people. I am already planning to come back in the future.


"Beautiful, comfortable and friendly"

Reviewed August 31, 2014

Cape Colony Inn has been recently renovated and they did an excellent job. We stayed in the king suite and it was spacious and comfortable for 4 adults. It would be equally comfortable for a family. Decorated in soft colors and pretty furnishings, the beds were especially comfortable. They provide a continental breakfast with waffles, muffins, hard boiled eggs, bagels, yogurts, coffee and juices - all excellent. You can take your breakfast to sit by the heated pool. The room and the common areas were impeccably clean. There's also a fire pit and an area with barbecue grills if you want to be your own chef. We were very, very pleased and will definitely return.


"Good location & newly renovated bathrooms"

Reviewed August 2014

I had family & friends visiting this Summer & had them stay here, One great feature is that they will accept a 1 day stay which most places will not accept. The bathrooms are newly renovated from last season when my children stayed. They said the mattresses were comfortable. They said the bedding was nice & the place was clean. Breakfast is included & you can make waffles which my grandchildren loved to do. There was also cereal, bagels, & yogurt as well as coffee, milk & tea. There is a heated pool & shuffle board.


"Good place to Party in P-town for the price and location."

Reviewed August 25, 2014

Great place for the price and location. Easy bike ride or walk into town for dinner and the bars. Also, wicked easy drive to the beach since it's on the outskirts of the town. Much cleaner than many of the other places in town. Couple blocks to the town bay beach perfect for late night cock tails.


"No complaints, great stay!"

Reviewed August 20, 2014

I stayed for 2 nights in August & can't wait to go back next summer. Our room was clean & included a microwave, refrigerator, ironing board & iron, flat screen TV, Keurig coffee dispenser, & Free Wi-Fi. The bed was comfortable, providing a great night's sleep. 


"A great stay- and something new to me"

Reviewed August 15, 2014

It was supposed to be a day trip to Provincetown on the ferry for my brothers birthday, but when a last minute cancellation came up at the Cape Colony we turned our trip into an overnight. We've stayed before so we know what to expect- large, clean rooms, comfy beds, soft pillows, and a filling continental breakfast with waffles, eggs, muffins, juice and coffee. My brother was staying at another hotel in town that made me appreciate the Colony even more- same amenities, similar prices, but the other hotel had rooms as small as some NYC hotels I've visited! You don't spend much time in your room- but you don't want to feel cramped when you are.

It was my first time in P-town, and Cape Colony Inn was an excellent home-base. It's a convenient location, just a short walk into town and plenty of parking.

"A Problem Solved"

Choosing an accommodation in Provincetown can be difficult as the information on some hotel/guesthouse websites can be limited, particularly the photos, it's difficult to know what you're getting. Luckily, a member of our group had been there before and chose the recently refurbished Cape Colony Inn on Bradford St for us. We found the check in welcoming and efficient.

Shared a suite at the Cape Colony Inn recently with a colleague during a week-long work retreat. After a full day of work it was nice to be able to come back to a clean, comfortable room. The accommodations were great (really comfortable queen size bed, plenty of hot water) and the staff were incredibly friendly and attentive. I'd certainly stay there again.


"Fantastic Stay"

I stayed here in a Suite with my coworkers for our Staff Retreat in Ptown. The staff at the hotel is amazing. They are extremely helpful and friendly. The rooms a nice and clean. The suites are great since you get a smaller room inside as well with a queen bed in addition to the queen beds in the main room. They renovated this place in the last year and they've done a fantastic job. Bravo!


"Actually very nice"

We usually stay in one of the many B&B's in p-town but we decided to take a very short notice to one of our favorite vacation spots on the cape, p-town. Most B&B's were booked (we travel with pets) and also invited my mom and the cape colony inn had a room that could accommodate two separate bedrooms plus pet friendly for an amazing deal. The room was very nice and the beds were so comfy…. Would definitely stay again....can't beat the value here.


"I'm coming back!"

Reviewed June 20, 2013 

Sure, the owners did a great job renovating the hotel, but more importantly the staff really makes this place. I made a week-long reservation and needed to adjust the dates after the point in which this was permitted. Sheila accommodated me when she didn't have to and didn't make me feel dumb. Everybody who works at The Cape Colony Inn definitely understands customer service. Steve, the manager, and Melissa were great. If you're looking for a convenient, comfortable, immaculate, friendly place to stay, this is it. And make sure you try the Belgium waffles for breakfast. I would definitely stay at The Cape Colony Inn again. 


"Fabulous Weekend in Ptown!"

Reviewed June 19, 2013 

I had a great time at the Cape Colony Inn this past weekend! I had been invited by Kiep Marketing to attend an event at the hotel and was really pleased with the accommodations and the friendly staff. Rooms are clean, nicely appointed, and the beds and linens were amazingly comfortable. The hotel is also conveniently located 1 block off of Commercial. It was a beautiful 5 minute walk to the heart of downtown. I am really looking forward to returning as they are continuing to make renovations to this property.


"Newly renovated and Very friendly staff!"

Cape Colony Inn has the nicest staff! Sheila at the front desk is very friendly and helpful! She recommended a delicious restaurant and gave us the most delicious chocolate lollipops that I have ever tasted! The hotel is close to the downtown, has a clean, heated pool, and nicely decorated rooms. Breakfast is tasty with hot waffles and everything is spotlessly clean! I would highly recommend to anyone traveling to Ptown.

"So nice!"

Reviewed June 18, 2013 

I read somewhere in the reviews about recent renovations though and then the average score shot up. Now I'm hesitant to leave a review here for another reason, I really want to keep this gem to myself! Our experience started when we first arrived and were greeted by a really friendly employee (Melissa). She helped us get settled and then also helped us out when we decided that we wanted to stay a second night. The room itself was nicely renovated and clean. The bed was brand new and so comfortable I think I could have sleep all day if we hadn't had to go out and see the city. The bathroom was nice and clean too….. The pool area is neat the pool is nice and warm (which was more than we could say about the weather when we were staying...) but we never got around to get in it. Breakfast also surpassed our expectations. I can really recommend everyone to stay here…

The check in process was super easy and the woman behind the front desk was helpful and funny. Our room was small, but met our needs perfectly. The beds were more comfortable than hotels where I have spent 4X the price.  We already re-booked and can't wait to come back!

They offer a continental breakfast each morning including coffee, muffins, bagels, mini cereal packages, yogurt cups, and Belgian waffles (if you have the patience to make them). Overall we were very happy with our stay and will likely stay again in the future.

"Perfect Stay!"

Reviewed June 2, 2013.

… Steve the general manager greeted us with open arms. He was very gracious, accommodating everything you expect or hope when arriving after a long stressful drive. The room was extremely spacious, clean. The bed was so comfortable! The renovations they have done are amazing! On top of that, all of the staff are extremely friendly. Any questions we had they did their best to answer…. Also parking is included (I believe 1 spot per room) which is such a bonus, if you have been to Provincetown and understand how hard it is to find parking. Also where it's situated in relation to downtown, was perfect for us. It's far enough from downtown that when you are done, you can walk back and it's quiet. But close enough that its not a ridiculous hike to get to the main area. Another bonus is that a continental breakfast is included. We will be returning for sure in the years to come. And have recommended the cape colony inn to all of our friends that visit Provincetown. Well done guys!

 It was very cozy and comfortable. The staff was so friendly, accommodating and helpful, it was amazing! … the room looks so "beachy" fresh and beautiful….the picture above the bed is just one of many different Cape scenes chosen in a contest the Inn's new owner(s) sponsored. Each room has a different scene. What a great idea, having local folks artwork displayed at the Inn. We've stayed in lots of places with fridges in rooms, but this is the first time we had one with a REAL freezer.

the bed was delightfully comfortable - soft as a cloud pillow top mattress. The Belgian waffles (yes, I have mentioned those twice - they were GOOD). The fridge in the room - nice convenience.

I was not sure what to expect as the hotel was just coming off a renovation but was VERY pleasantly surprised. The manager greeted us personally and was a friendly and helpful guide for our entire stay. He made sure we had everything we needed (like an iron and directions to dinner places.) The room was pleasantly decorated with crisp and clean colors. The local art was a nice touch as well and gave a more personalized feel to the entire place. I would definitely recommend this place for a stay in Ptown - the prices are great!

The inn is only a five-minute drive to downtown Provincetown, or you could take a bus, which stops right there. The room was newly painted in tasteful colors, with wainscoting that gave it a homey feel. The bed linens were top-of-the-line and the beds comfortable. The one night we stayed in we had plenty of room at the table for two couples to play card games and hang out. The free breakfast was more than ample--fresh fruit, brewed coffees, waffles, bagels, and muffins. Any time we needed service, we received almost immediate attention. The staff was welcoming and helpful. The inn is proximate to the city, the ocean, and a great state park, where we took our motorcycles. We would go back in a heartbeat.
