Sluggo65 did an excellent job capturing this place. Have a look at his Oct 2013 review. It was my first time to Ptown - so I don't have my own comparisons to this or other Ptown properties - but I'd call it cheap and cheerful. Terrific central location. Two buildings with 3 stories, no elevator. Springs would occasionally 'boing' in...

I spent one night at this hotel en route from Nantucket to Boston. The person on the desk was very helpful and advised me of some fun things to do in Ptown on a Monday. The room itself was old fashioned but in a nice way that worked. It was clean and the bed was firm and comfy. There was...

Great economical get away in a perfect location. This hotel is one of the local lobby bars with piano sing alongs. I stayed on the in room 1 which is directly above the lobby so if you plan on sleeping before midnight...not the best room. Honestly it added a great twist to a very fun week. Rooms are very basic...

I've stayed here several times before BUT this will be my last time. The room is in a major need of a renovation, when I saw the room I was very disappointed in how disrepair it was in. The receptionist wasn't very accommodating, look else wear.

We had the best girls weekend in P Town and are so glad that we chose the Gifford House to stay. Dave and David were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and met it's purpose of a place to lie your head at the end of a night of partying. There is a bonus free continental breakfast that...

We came to the gifford house for one night and it was a great stay. The rooms are simple but for a beach town thats all you need. It is very gay orientated for obvious reasons (its in P-town) so if your not ok with gay don't stay here. I would stay again. It is literally right up the street...

I have a love/hate relationship with the Gifford House. I can never decide if i'm charmed or digusted by it's "hasn't changed in 30 years" atmosphere. I mean, literally nothing had changed there since i started going to Ptown regularly in the late 80s. I bet nothing has moved an inch in the place in all that time, certainly nothing's...

It's one of the larger, if not largest, Guest Houses in the area. Location is perfect being only one block from the popular Commercial Drive with restaurants & shopping. Like most of Ptown, clientele was mostly all gay when we were there. Only 4-5 blocks to the the popular Boatslip for Tea Dance and Pool time during the day. There...
