Love the Masthead and stay there each time I visit. It is like my home away from home. A little bit of a walk to town center but worth it !

the property was close to perfect! The parking situTION IS HORRIBLE. Ther are not enough spaces and when the street is ful one must park all the way down by the provincetown inn if that is even possible. This is that main complaint The unit was beautiful privat and super clean with all the extras you could want.

The hotel is in a lovely location. I enjoyed being at the quiet end of Commercial Street and the porch with all of the deck chairs overlooking fantastic access to the water. Although I could not park at the hotel, I was very grateful to have the pass to park not too far down the street and there was always space. However, I would truly hesitate to recommend the place to other visitors to P-Town. I arrived at 4 and checked in. But, when I sent a small question, right after 5, I got an automated response that no-one would be in the office until 9 the next morning. I find it very surprising that people only have an hour. If I had arrived after 5 and had a hard time getting in my room, this would have been difficult. Fortunately, that didn't happen. Also, on Sunday morning at 8:30 I was awoken by someone working on my window, putting cardboard in where there was a crack. This window is right next to the head of the bed and was worked on far too early in the morning, especially on a Sunday. However, the biggest issue, the one that would make me hesitate making a recommendation or staying there again was the lack of follow-through when I had a terrible issue. The first night I was there I slept, possibly 2 hours. The light in my room was horrific. There were blackout curtains on the two small windows, but not the large bay window, next to my head. I had to send 4 messages before I got any response. And the response offered zero help.
