The Harbor Hotel Provincetown

Cape Cod, New England

The hotel

Harbor Hotel Provincetown offers guests a touch of luxury by the beach. Fresh, vibrant decor reflects the free spirit of Provincetown with all rooms very spacious indeed and packed to the hilt with home-from-home comforts. Amenities include a seasonal outdoor swimming pool. There’s also the Whaler Lounge offering everything from creative salads and hearty sandwiches to lobster sliders with a fresh twist. Poolside is the Cabana, another great place to relax, this time lingering over mouth-watering barbequed dishes accompanied, by an ice-cold beer perhaps or a glass of wine. A complimentary coffee gets your day off to a great start, after which, grab yourself a picnic lunch and a courtesy bike and explore one of the many spectacular hiking trails close by. After a busy day, head to the patio lounge complete with fire pit to contemplate whether to head downtown or simply stay put and enjoy the vibe.

We spent one night at this hotel. Arrived around 1 (check in is 4) Our room wasn’t ready but we changed into bathing suits and sat by the pool. They had fun music playing and there is a bar with food. (Burgers/dogs/chicken) They also have some seating areas and Firepit’s in this area which was cool at night. The rooms are basic.

We spent one night at this hotel. Arrived around 1 (check in is 4) Our room wasn’t ready but we changed into bathing suits and sat by the pool. They had fun music playing and there is a bar with food. (Burgers/dogs/chicken) They also have some seating areas and Firepit’s in this area which was cool at night. The rooms are basic. The floors are not carpeted, I’m assuming because you’re most likely coming in from the beach/pool. Bed was comfortable. Room seemed clean. The shower filed with water as you showered. And when it drained the tub was left with a lot of hair. It looked like someone before us had washed a dog and the hair cane up from the drain. Also, after showering, I was getting dressed in the room and the door swung open. Another guest was given the same room and entered with a key. Luckily I had a towel on. Overall. Basic hotel with your basic needs. It’s not close to much so we did Uber to dinner and there’s no food on site for breakfast etc so we left as soon as we woke up. We would probably stay here again for the pool aspect-and beach is literally across the street-at low tide you can walk really far out. Read less

Great customer service, very helpful and friendly. The room very nice and basic. for the amount charged per night $379 dollars bay view room 2nd fl (229) no amenities at all, No complimentary bottle of water, one one chair. Very quiet area. Espectacular facilities but at 10pm they shutdown the lobby and Wood fire, the vending machones only takes $1 dollar bill, the food at the pool bar TERRIBLE & expensive. I will believe because of covid the service was like that but regardless Customer Service should be great any day any time. Read less

When we arrived at the hotel around 3PM they let us know that our room was not ready. We came back at 4PM, the check in time and did not get out rooms until 8PM. The floors are made of a textured concrete and were extremely dirty. My friend took a shower and 30 min later his feet were BLACK from walking on the floor. Also, this is a glorified… Read more
When we arrived at the hotel around 3PM they let us know that our room was not ready. We came back at 4PM, the check in time and did not get out rooms until 8PM. The floors are made of a textured concrete and were extremely dirty. My friend took a shower and 30 min later his feet were BLACK from walking on the floor. Also, this is a glorified MOTEL. There is a road in between the beach and "motel". They do a great job of taking pics to make the place seem nicer.  The bed was comfortable. I emailed ahead of my visit and asked for a room on the 2nd floor with adjoining rooms. They said they would do it and in the end we had rooms on the 1st floor and you could hear dogs nails clicking against the floor since they allow pets. Overall, nasty! Read less
