Love everything about the Brass Key. Great homemade cookies are offered during the day and wonderful breakfast pasteries are available to start the day. The decor is charming, warm and inviting. It's a great place to come back to after spending time in Provincetown and just unwind.

Room Tip: If you choose a room by the pool you may hear pool talk late at night. If you room is near the bar...

This was our first time to Provincetown, and The Brass Key was highlighted on a local gay friendly travel show, so we tried it out, and could not be happier. The atmosphere is very relaxing, from the grounds to the sceneary. The property is very well kept and maintained, as are the rooms. Being one of a handful of places that has a pool, we found ourselves always wondering back to the property for an afternoon "dip" which was very relaxing. The staff pre-booked reservations for us at local resturants, and went over and above expectations to make our stay as relaxing on us as they could. The property is very well placed, and is an easy walk to anywhere in town. Already booked for next year!

Room Tip: All rooms in Provincetown are small, from what I've heard and seen...the idea is just get your f...

Our stay at The Brass Key was very nice. We booked because of recommendations from a resident of Provincetown. The inn was clean and everyone was nice. Brett was very helpful. We were the only straight couple there. I thought it might be weird but it was fine. The nightlife at the bar was vibrant. The location is close enough but far enough for a quiet sleep.

I stay at Brass Key every year for at least one week in the summer. Their staff goes beyong expectations. Their breakfast is an excellent reason to get up every beautiful morning at this resort which makes you feel as though you were in a private resort. Security on the property is reassuring. The infinity pool is heavenly. Spotless accomodations. My partner and I don't stay anywhere else in PTown!

My partner stays here every summer for one week - He went on and on about it and he was right on - The pool is kept well as are all the grounds- the continental breakfast is quite tasty and a step up from a traditional continental ! try the Bread pudding !
House keeping is quick and very thorough- from the front desk to the grounds keepers everyone does a great job !
Thank you Brass Key for a wonderful week !

This is my 6th trip to Ptown but first staying at the Brass Key. I took a group of 9 people. Everyone had such a remarkable experience staying here that we all reserved rooms for next year. This place is by far the nicest place in which I've stayed in Ptown. The rooms are nice, the staff remarkably accommodating, and the overall vibe really fantastic. The grounds are so much nicer here than at other inns in Ptown. The central area with the pool separates this so much from the other places. The pool and hot tub are wonderfully accommodating for all-day pool fun which we loved not having to always be in the hustle & bustle of the Boatslip craze. The pics of the common area don't really do it justice. It's right in the center of town which is very convenient. I really can't stress enough how much I recommend this place. The staff really takes care of you and creates a peaceful and friendly environment for the entire stay. The beds were very comfortable and the AC worked great. And the daily wine and cheese hour was awesome. I would not bother looking at other places (I know that we won't).

Room Tip: My neighbor in 133 had a bit of an issue with the noise from the bar being right next to it. 134 wa...

My Partner and I stayed at the Brass Key while attending the film festival in P-Town and had a great time. The Key does have small rooms but tastefully decorated similar to ones we've stayed in abroad. Great location with parking. However we did find the prices a bit steep. We never understand why these places don't reduce the prices a bit because there were still vacancies when we arrived; even $50 cheaper probably would have sold out. Anyway, if you go to P-Town before July the weather can be dicey so we had some good days and some bad but no matter the weather we felt at home at the Key. The staff was very friendly which is important to us and attentive. They did go a little heavy on the music 24/7----not really in the mood for club music at 8am for breakfast; something subtle would be nice though. Despite that, the courtyard was very nice, with pool and jacuzzi and a surprisingly decent wine and cheese hour! All in all a great stay and we will return. P-Town is one of the most welcoming places that we've been to in the world and we travel a lot.

Room Tip: Pick a room away from the bar area if you don't like noise
