You're cutting it close for a July 4 getaway. For 8 people you would probably need a large place, I would recommend Surfside Inn. It's on the water and also has a pool. It's within walking distance of downtown Ptown. Farther out are Provincetown Inn at the very end of Commercial St., also with a pool, and a beach next door. I think the rooms are ok but the public areas are kind of bleak. At the other end of town is Cape Inn (rte. 6A @ Snail Rd.). It's across from the water, but kind of far from the town center (1.5 miles), although there is regular bus service into town and cabs are cheap. Cape Inn is an old rehabilitated Holiday Inn. These places are on the bay side. The beaches are ok but nothing great. But it is easy to get to the ocean beaches, Herring Cove or Race Point. If you are coming by car, all these places have parking and you could drive downtown and park in the evening if you didn't feel like walking. The water at Cape Inn is very shallow. At low tide you can easily walk hundreds of feet from shore and still have the water around your ankles.

For seafood, try Edwige, Bubula's, or Lobster Pot. Many other restaurants have good seafood menus too. A good place near the Surfside is Fanizzi's.
