“The Gem of Provincetown”

We want to thank our guests for so many great reviews over the past month. Here are just a few of the kind words you expressed about your stay with us!

“The Gem of Provincetown”

Our second stay at the Cape Colony Inn with our small dog. Fantastic staff, clean rooms, comfy bed, great amenities, breakfast, in room coffee, and quiet. Stayed in a second floor king room. So close to Provincetown that we walked everywhere. A five minute drive to the dunes, walk to the beach. We’ll return!!

– David G.

“Great experience”

We were very happy with our stay at Cape Colony. The staff was very nice and accommodating. Our room was clean and location is a short 5 min. walk to downtown. Breakfast was also very good. I would recommend this Inn and would definitely stay here again.

-Jim B.

“Clean, great location, nice staff, just perfect!”

Great spot if you are looking for something affordable. My friends and I were in for the weekend for a race and we booked the Queen Suites. They have parking, great fire pit and easy walk to the beach or the main drag of streets. Just perfect! Thank you Cape Colony for the great memories!

– Anna B.

“One of the BEST places in P-town”

Always accommodating to your needs, clean, friendly, great continental breakfast, comfortable rooms and beds. Great ac & heat, best feature is CLEAN. Ample setups in room for coffee, frig, wifi. Beds are very comfortable.

– Marty

“Cape Cod Traditional”

This was my wife’s and I travel up the East Coast to visit the original thirteen colonies.
Cape Cod was on the list because my wife’s ancestors lived on the Cape and descendents are still there. We chose Providencetown as our destination and were not disappointed. The town is quaint with a flavor of Key West. My wife chose the Cape Colony Inn after calling the motel directly. She found the staff friendly and informative. The motel is what you imagined a Cape Cod lodge to be. The stucture was wood which continued into the interior. The interior was painted in cool beach colors. The room had a separate sleeping area and bathing area which we found very convenient. The continenal breakfast was excellent! Fresh baked muffins from the town’s bakery were of gourmet quality. We can highly recommend the Cape Colony Inn.

Green Features: They’re dog friendly and have a nice grassy area for your pets. Our two dogs loved it there.
