Great people and location.

One of the best locations on the main drag and a 10 second walk to The tea Dance and bar!! Great front and back yard and incredibly nice people hosting. Very comfy, clean and just well kept overall! One of the best places for people watching on Commercial street. We were not too sure about the actual location when we booked the stay but were delighted when we realized where it was situated on the main drag, excuse the pun.

The start of a great once a year vacation

So glad we stumbled across this place. Close enough to where you want to be but not on top of you when you want a little privacy.

Ideal Location in P'town

This Inn is situated in the middle of everything - a great location. Our room was on the top floor. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was well appointed. The included breakfast was top notch, although there was no sufficient seating for everyone that wanted to participate. The owners were very nice at check-in. Disappointed that we had to pay $20 extra a day for parking as the room rate is expensive. I would definitely reccomend for everyone.

Awesome location. Stephen & Bob were excellent from the time I made reservations for myself and 21 guests to the time we left. They offered excellent recommendations for a lobster/clam bake sunset beach party to helping with parking. They always were available and returned calls and e-mails. The B&B is in a great location. You can walk to the heart of town or not. We would all go back with no problem.

A wonderful place run by the most accommodating owners, Stephen and Bob and their fabulous dog, Shelby! We have now stayed here 15 years in a row. Highly recommended!

Amazing Weekend Stay

We were able to get a 2 night stay during bear week which we thought we would be out of luck. They were amazing in accommodating our short trip.

A gem in Ptown!

I just had another wonderful stay at the Prince Albert and already made my reservations for next Summer! It has the perfect location on Commercial Street that is far enough from the noise and crowds at the town's center but still has the perfect view of the world going by (especially to view the comings and goings of the daily T-dance crowd directly across the street)! I really wonderful daily breakfast is served that has quite the variety of foods (fresh waffles are one of my favorites). The houses are charming and the proprietors are great guys will go to any lengths to make your stay a memorable one. The extra bonus is Shelby, the super friendly resident golden lab, who will greet you when you return to your room!

Cute B&B in Provincetown

4.8 on August 17, 2014

My wife, 10 month old and I stayed at this B&B in August. Stephen and Bob were very accommodating with our daughter, and we felt right at home. Loved it and will definitely go back! Clean, cozy and a great location.

Fantastic guest house

3.6 on August 11, 2014

We had an amazing stay in PTown and at the Prince Albert Guest House. Stephen and Bob go out of their way to ensure their guests are well looked after. The location is great and the rooms and accommodation are wonderful. We will definately stay again on our next visit to PTown.

Great Vacation

5 on August 11, 2014

Everything was perfect: the room, the location, the owners, even the guests were wonderful. Breakfast was included, and we actually had belgian waffles every morning (there are other things, of course). When we go back to Provincetown, this is where we will be staying!
