This is maybe the third or fourth time I've stayed at the Gifford House and I agree with most of the other reviewers. It's not chic by any means. In fact, it's clearly older. The furniture and furnishings are dated, BUT the location is perfect (I mean..really...perfect), and the management keep the place spotless clean (which makes a real difference)....

Very nice and centrally located in Provicentown. Everything is close by. Nice clean room, please note that some rooms don't have AC service, but a cool big fan is provided. Good service, besides the hotel, they have 2 bars to enjoy. Highly recommended.

There! I hope I got the owner(s)/management's attention with this title. I've stayed at the Gifford House many times over the years and although the place is clean and the staff is very friendly and accommodating I feel the owners of the Gifford House should pay more attention to the condition of the beds at the Inn. I've always rented...

This is our second year in a row staying at the Gifford House. We stay in the most basic room, and the value is unbelievable compared to the rest of P-town. Like the other reviews say, the decor in the rooms is dated, but who cares when the beds are comfy and the rooms are clean. Personally, I'm travelling to...

If you're not fussy about the room decor, The Gifford House, offers a good value for Provincetown, MA. This is one of the oldest hotels in town. I recently stayed in the Annex. The Annex is quieter than the main hotel. The main part of the hotel has a club and piano bar in it. It's not completely quiet in...

We stayed here during off-season rates so it wasn't that expensive - the on season rates are overboard for this hotel. I found other hotels that were less expensive - so I'd recommend finding one of them because it wasn't worth the extra money to stay here. There aren't many amenities and it's a basic hotel with basic rooms in...

The Gifford House Inn place is pretty basic (except breakfast which is a joke). Good place if you want a no frills mid price place to stay for a night and don't care about the service. I recently cancelled an off season reservation 1 week in advance and was charged $120 cancellation fee, so obviously I won't be staying here...

I spent 6 days the end of July into the begining of August at The Gifford House. I was immediately greeted by a friendly desk clerk. I was checked in quickly and told of all the hotel had to offer. My room was bright, very clean and perfectly comfortable. The location centrally located in the heart of everything. I chatted...
