This was the 20th anniversary of our first kiss

5 on March 19, 2015

Despite the weather (pouring rain) we had a wonderful, relaxing time. We enjoyed it very much and would like to return next year. We always visit P-town in the summer, but found this a different experience in the very best way. Thank you!

Lovely Winter Getaway

I stayed with my partner in the lower level room with a king bed. The room was so cozy and the fireplace was perfect for our winter get away. We were celebrating out 1 year anniversary and the host made us feel right at home, even provided a bottle of champagne to celebrate. The Inn is at a fantastic location - make it easy to get to restaurants by foot even though it was cold out. I hope to return again in the summer time when Ptown has more going on!

Terrific value and great location

We live up the street from the benchmark in and needed a place to stay as our home is under renovation. This was a very nice, clean place to stay. The breakfast was great and the host was terrific.

feels like home

Very friendly staff (Benji is fantastic). Originally booked at gabriels but due to frozen pipes were forced to find last minute acccomadations. Benchmark got us in and then upgraded us to the penthouse suite which was amazing. Saved our weekend get away. Next time we will be returning to benchmark. Thank you.

We arrived just after the big storms were over. Beautiful three story house, big sunny common room, a fireplace in our room!!!, wonderful breakfast and I did not go to the Wired Puppy once- didn't need to- the Inn coffee was lovely. I love Ptown and have stayed in many places and tried several seasons. Benchmark Inn is one to return to. Benji was welcoming and a font of information from discount winter clothes to what vine was growing behind the Inn.

wonderful getaway

Winter minitrip

4.6 on January 15, 2015

We went for a one night getaway to Provincetown in January 2015 and we needed a pet friendly inn, Benchmark Inn was our answer. The inn has a boutique inn feel with tasteful nautical decor and very pleasant feel. Our dog was greater with treats and a towel and we were greeted with Swiss chocolates. I would definitely stay there again.

Great Getaway

Benjamin is a super host who is professional and down to earth. The rooms are immaculate and very modern. I would definitely stay here again!

Our visit to the Benchmark, although only for one night, was absolutely perfect. We knew by our greeting from Benji that we had selected the perfect Inn. He made us feel right at home! The Inn was immaculate, beautifully designed, and the room was beautiful and had everything we needed. Located right on the corner of Commercial Street with only a 5 minute walk into the center of town. We are planning a return visit in February and bringing along friends. Thanks Benji for everything!
