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

4.6 on June 18, 2014

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.

Penthouse at Benchmark Inn

The keeping of this inn is excellent. Accommodation were very comfortable in the Penthouse suite. Views from inside the room gives you one of the most exclusive P-Town experience. You can sit outside on the private balcony and enjoy a meal, drinks coffee. If you want to hit the beach the Inn has some umbrella and beach chairs. It is a beautiful and well kept place just a stroll of the action on Commercial. The atmosphere is peaceful and relax. Our host was really helpful and kept everything running around the place.

Excellent Stay

My partner and I have a fabulous time at Benchmark Inn. It is an up-to-date bed and breakfast, extremely clean and well kept. The staff is great and it is right in downtown P-town. We will definitely go back, possibly every year. Also, BEST coffee I've ever had! We stayed in one of the smallest rooms, but it was perfect for us. Big bathroom and again, can't emphasize enough how clean and modern yet still cozy this place is. Recommend it 100%.

A great new find!

Benchmark provided us a cozy, well-appointed space for a short getaway. The fireplace was a wonderful touch for mid-April. The bathroom was luxurious. The external staircase access to the room was a bonus, and we enjoyed sipping tea on the little balcony. We would definitely return!

The weekend was much too short

Our room was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable and the fireplace at the foot of the bed took the chill off a cold evening. We had breakfast both mornings and Don saw to it that we had everything we needed. Breakfast was delicious btw. We were a (very) short walk from Commercial Street. We shopped and dined at some really great places. I was sorry we had to leave on Sunday but plan to return to the Benchmark as soon as possible.


3.0 on February 21, 2014

I was surprised about the breakfast only being a cold continental breakfast, but the rooms were nice. Not sure if I'd stay here again, but it was close to the Mews Restaurant which was fantastic and Don who was running the place in the off-season was friendly and helpful.

Off-Season Oasis

4.4 on January 12, 2014

Beautiful, relaxing rooms. We came off-season (January) and found the B&B to be quite charming. Don was very welcoming and quick to offer helpful suggestions while most of the town was shut-down. The breakfasts were simple (toast, cereal, ham, etc). Parking was a bit of a chore due to the small area; it was free but tight. However I would definitely come again; the place was just what I needed/wanted to relax.

Holly Follies Weekend

4.2 on December 10, 2013

Great off-season well-maintained B&B. Very clean, warm and cozy with a gas fireplace. Balcony (with private entrance) on south side 2nd floor overlooks town and harbor. Staff was friendly, personable, and informative. Breakfast was light and nutritious...good coffee! The Benchmark is located a block off Commercial Street near the east end of the shopping/restaurant district. It's quiet, with little ambient noise from the street or other rooms. I recommend this B&B for couples, or singles.
