seems like the drinks were watered down? Been going to Ptown for over 10 years. Always buy a weekly pass to the Boatslip. Fun place to go every day from 4-7pm with friends. Was there last week ( July 29 to Aug 6, 2016 ). Every time we ordered vodka-cranberry drinks ( AKA Cape Cods ), we paid extra for...

After a 5 year hiatus, we returned to Ptown for a short vacation. Our favorite place to stay is the Boatslip. It is downtown Ptown. No driving required. The motel has been recently renovated, complete with newly installed air conditioners. The resort is clean and delightful. They added some hot food items to their complimentary breakfast. The staff are still...

People go to the boatslip to see their favorite bartenders during their vacation. The bartender lottery of moving them around every day will ruin the institution of tea dance bc the biggest part of tea, the drinks, is predicated on all of the guests knowing exactly where their favorite bartender is stationed each and every day. Fix it or people...

The location is great. The water views are wonderful. The price is not bad, parking is always available. Most of the staff are terrific. The rooms have been updated but the beds are akin to sleeping on concrete. Extremely firm.. a bit too firm. Not a family friendly hotel, but a great place for couples to get away to. Love...

A really nice place. I was lucky enough to get a room with a view of the water. Additionally, it is right in the middle of all the action on Commercial Street. Some of the beaches (Race Point) are far and you will need a car to get there.
