“Great Find! Clean, Convenient & on the beach for a reasonable price”
Reviewed 9 July 2013

My family and I needed a Saturday night stay after a week on the Cape. We choose East Harbour and were delighted by our accommodations. We were given a cottage to stay in that had two bedrooms with a connecting bathroom plus a living room and small kitchen. The cottage was very, very clean and did not have any weird smell of mold that is usually associated with these types of cottages. One reason I believe is due to the fact that the cottage was upgraded to newer modern windows. Also there is AC in the cottage and I'm sure a lot of turnover. The kitchen had newer cabinetry and was equipped well enough for my wife and I to make a nice dinner. The beds were comfortable.

In addition to the nice cottage, the grounds were also very nice. There is a close line outside the cottage to hang your towels and wet clothes as well as a hose for you to wash off your feet. There is also a large common area deck that is well equipped with gazebos, tables, chairs, gas BBQ and an open outdoor shower. The view is beautiful. You look out onto the sand dunes and have a glimpse of water. Plus, you have a great view of P-Town and the Pilgrim Tower. We sat on the deck for our dinner, plus our morning coffee. See the photos I've posted.

As far as cons are concerned based upon my tastes, I would have liked to have had a covered outdoor shower next to the cottage I was staying in. They already have the water hooked up with the house, so a small investment upgrade would go a long way. The second con is that check out was very early. 10:00 AM. We wish we had more time in the morning to relax. Instead we had to hurry and pack to be out at that time.

Impeccably clean, warmly welcoming, with gorgeous views and its own little boardwalk with several gazebos and grills for picnicking or just having a glass of wine at sunset, with manicured lawns and lush flowers, just a five to ten-minute bike ride from Provincetown, and at SUCH price -- this is undoubtedly the best place to stay in the PTown area.

We spent one night this last weekend in this fantastic motel close to Ptown. It is a very clean place, nice bed, modern bathroom, fridge, microwave, ac... It also has a private Access to the beach and nice chairs to sunbath. In my opinion it is a worthy place to stay. Clean clean place.

Squeaky clean, inviting, friendly and accommodating. This is a fantastic place to rest, relax and enjoy the cape.The only suggestion I could make would be a bike rental to get into Provincetown since parking is such a hassle....otherwise a great place to stay.

My best friend and I started staying at East Harbour over 5 years ago for our "girls weekend". We started with a one night stay in the motel and now spend 2-3 nights in one of the cottages. We absolutely love our weekend getaway. The grounds are beautiful and quiet. We truly relax and unwind and when we want some fun we go to P-town just a short ride away! Sonya & Bunny are wonderful to deal with and are very friendly. We both highly recommend East Harbour.

We stayed there with two adults and two teens and they hung a Canadian flag anticipating our arrival. I have been going there for 18 years with my family, my parents and my sister, and have never had a problem. After 15 years we brought up our cousins and their families and they have been back every year since. The rooms are well kept and clean and the cottages are very quaint. The owner Sonia is very reliable and will fix anything as soon as she hears that something has gone wrong. There are laundry machines so you can do laundry if needed and there is a shed to store bikes just across the street. The motels are always kept in pristine condition and are very comfortable. Motels and cottages both have decks that look out onto the very beautiful skyline of Provincetown. It is a vacation you will cherish for a lifetime.

Room Tip: book early all the rooms are great

I selected this motel for a one night stay (by reading info on TripAdvisor) on the Cape when we couldn't book the B&B we had stayed at last year in Ptown. I wanted something near the water. This place is charming, clean and the staff was great - very friendly and helpful. We got a great recommendation for dinner Friday night (Montano's) when we decided we didn't want to go back to Ptown. Montano's was right down Rt. 6. Fabulous jumbo lump crab stuffed flounder!
It was very quiet, since it was mid-October. We enjoyed walking the beach (when it wasn't raining!)
I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: we were in a motel room. I don't know what the cottages or efficiencise were like, but the motel...
