Repeat Stay

4.6 on July 13, 2016

This July marked my second Provincetown stay at The Benchmark Inn. Dan and Daniel are consummate inn keepers--pleasant, friendly, efficient, helpful, and unobtrusive. The location is perfect (No need for a car in Ptown!) and rooms include outdoor balconies for excellent bay views and the relaxation of salt air breezes. I stayed in the penthouse this trip--I highly recommend the privacy, upper deck views, and added sitting room with kitchen. Accommodations can make or break a vacation. The Benchmark Inn definitely contributes to a positive experience.


Wonderful B and B in Ptown

We really enjoyed our stay. We were close to everything in town yet the room was quiet and relaxing. Private bathroom was perfect, clean/modern and more then enough space. The room was small but worked well. 2 night tables and 2 reading lights, (one of my pet peeves is finding only one night table and one reading lamp for 2 people) I really liked the private entrance. Great idea. Dan and Daniel were excellent hosts and provided anything one could need in a B and B. Also, even the small parking space worked well. They have it all under control!


Wonderful experience!!

My husband and I stayed at the Benchmark Inn a few weeks ago. It was an absolutely perfect vacation in every way! Dan and Daniel were fabulous hosts and went above and beyond to make our stay with them extra special! The rooms were clean and roomy. The breakfasts were delicious! They were so kind and helped us make our way around with suggestions and all were great! We went Whale watching and shopping as well as relaxed on the beautiful beaches. It was a purely perfect getaway! We have already recommended the Inn to Friends and we plan on going back for another visit with them in the Fall!!


Already booked our room for next year!

Stayed at the exquisite Benchmark Inn during the PTown Film Festival, and rank it among the nicest of accommodations we have experienced. Lovely rooms, ideal location, top notch and delightful hosts...all topped off by a breakfast that caters to all and includes excellent espresso and homemade croissants.


Amazing place to stay!!

We just got home from a week at the Benchmark Inn. It was our first Bed and Breakfast and we will be going back every year! It was the best service and most beautiful quaint place ever! Dan and Daniel were amazing hosts. The breakfast was great, rooms clean and fresh. It was mere minutes to walk to everything! We highly recommend this Inn! You won't be disappointed!

The Benchmark: is five stars enough?

5 on April 30, 2016

We visited the Benchmark on an April weekend to celebrate an anniversary we share with two old friends. And our time there felt like we were sharing that celebration with new friends. The rooms, though not big, were beautiful and comfortable. Everything works, the beds are lovely, and there are nice touches like fireplaces, ceiling fans, wet bars, and (in at least one room) a skylight over the bed (with blinds, of course). The overall vibe is luxurious, but not pretentious: just elegant, un-fussy comfort. Benji was born to be a B&B host: friendly, welcoming, always available but never intrusive. He clearly enjoys meeting new people and helping guests connect with each other. We had some delightful, wide-ranging conversations around the breakfast table. The breakfast food was excellent--homemade breads and jams, cheeses, pastries, cereals, good fresh fruit, yogurt, an egg boiler, and a Jura coffee maker that produces quite possibly the best coffee I've ever tasted. If you want a perfect Provincetown getaway, the Benchmark is a great place to start. I'm not sure five stars does it justice.
