Loved the Benchmark!

5 on September 11, 2014

Lovely stay at the Benchmark Inn. We stayed in Room 7 on the top floor--small but so sweet and you can not beat the semi-private outdoor deck with panoramic views of Provincetown and the harbor. Daniel is just as helpful as can be and his homemade baked goods are delicious. (His grandmother's chocolate cake made a perfect midnight snack!) The Inn is well appointed, bright, clean, quiet--just a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of Commercial Street! We'll return!

Wonderfully gracious hosts !

The Benchmark Inn is a lovely place to stay while visiting Provincetown -- located on a small and quiet street; we especially enjoyed the a sweet and well-appointed garden, lounge chairs and tables and chairs. The hosts, Daniel and Dan, are more than gracious, and their breakfast offerings are delicious. The room in which we stayed was rather small, but clean and well-attended. Our only concern was the almost impossibly small closet. But overall -- we would return to The Benchmark as our very favorite P-Town B & B !!

Finest B&B in Provincetown

5 on August 28, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our three-night stay at the Benchmark Inn in Provincetown. Dan and Daniel went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Their attention to detail and concern about guest comfort reflect a level of inn keeping that discerning travelers will appreciate. The inn is spotlessly clean and thoughtfully appointed. We loved Dan and Daniel’s outstanding Swiss-style breakfast, which always included their homemade breads and jams among many other selections, and we especially enjoyed eating each morning in the beautifully landscaped garden. They never missed when recommending great restaurants and even made dinner reservations for us. The location is ideal; it’s a short, easy walk to restaurants, cabarets, bars, art galleries and shops without being in the middle of crowded Commercial Street. We’re enthusiastically recommending the Benchmark Inn to our friends and planning another visit ourselves. We can’t imagine staying anywhere else.

Had a wonderful holiday at the Benchmark Provincetown. Had the Penthouse Rooms which came with its own private terrace giving the best views and the best place to watch the Sunrise and Sunsets across P Town and the sea. Our friend had a lower room which was cool quiet and cosy. The rooms were neat, clean and very comfortable with luxurious beds and the best quiet cool Air Con , a relief after a hot day enjoying the sights of P Town. Had a great sleep. Breakfast was simple but delicious and satisfying. Home made Granola, bread, jams and delicious pastries fresh everyday along side fresh fruit, berries and a boiled egg if desired. The owners Dan and Dan were perfect hosts and couldn't do enough for us, booking our show tickets and taxi's and giving us all the info we needed to enjoy P Town at its best. We were met with our bags at the ferry with a welcoming smile and taken back to the ferry on our return home. The Benchmark is quite and private and you barely see other guests if you dont wish to and the atmosphere is always friendly and easy going. A perfect stay and we cant wait to return at some point in the not too distant future. 5 out of 5

Our two hosts could not have been more welcoming .... would certainly return for another stay.

Outstanding inn

4.0 on July 14, 2014

We stayed in the penthouse at the Benchmark and the accommodations were fantastic. There is a semi-private deck with a view of the ocean and the monument where we spent a great deal of time. The owners, Daniel and Dan, could not be more gracious and welcoming. The penthouse is actually made of up two rooms, one with a bed and gas fireplace and another with a couch and small sink area with a refrigerator and coffee maker. The extra space is a nice touch. The bed is comfy and everything is spotless. The breakfast is more basic than other inns I've stayed at but in every other area the Benchmark definitely ranks #1!

A Great Inn

Daniel and Dan are amazing hosts and the Inn is beautiful and in beautiful shape. They truly treat you like a friend who has come to stay. We always felt comfortable to come and go as we pleased. Homemade breakfast treats were amazing as well as the views and just the general welcome feeling they both give you. A 5 Star experience.
