Affordable, Comfortable, and Great Location

This was my first trip to Ptown and going thru the hundreds of places to stay, I felt that I found the best bang for my buck. I'm used to traveling to Key West once or twice a year so I know not to stay too close to everything...yet not too far away. BLGH was right off the main strip with easy access to everything Ptown had to offer in dining, bars, nightlife and if you were up early enough, a great place to visit the dunes. (I was not up early enough, but i know they're there...LOL) The management and staff were easy to talk to and very accomodating at answering any questions you may have. A prompt tour of everything available at the guesthouse was given including times for when things were available. Although in terms of amenities there wasn't much, the gardens , hot tub, and lookout points were beautiful. I highly recommend this place especially for first timers to Ptown. I will definitey be back. Oh but one quick note, the map that google gives you to find the place is way off point. I took the Fast Ferry provided by Boston Harbour Cruises and docked at the wharf in cental Ptown. From the wharf, simply reach Commercial Avenue, make a left (west) and head about 6 blocks. The sign is kinda hidden, but look for Winthrop...Make a right and BLGH will be just ahead a bit on the left.

You MUST check out "Auditions" at the Crown and Anchor held on Tuesday Nights. I was guided in that direction while having dinner. So much fun!

Review for the Beaconlight

The staff was incredibly rude and cold. They did not greet us kindly, did not show us around the property. They were all impatient, especially when I accidentally left my hat on the roof and they acted like it was a huge inconvenience for them to go get it from the "back". Also, there was an especially creepy kid who apparently "lived" there and was lurking around the place a few times that we saw. Would not stay there ever again.

Birthday Winter Overnight

The check-in person was nice and friendly. The kitchen / eating area for breakfast was warm and friendly. The common areas were also warm and friendly. There is an outside hot tub. Our room was beautiful. The mattress was older and we both had backaches the next day. The grapefruit pump soap and hair products were fantastic smelling ! There is a tv and a small frig. Breakfast was breads, cereals, yogurt, some fruit. If they had cream cheese or peanut butter for the breads it would have been perfect. Coffee / Tea / Hot Chocolate were wonderful. Less than a block from Commercial Street in a great location.

A great inn close to all the shops and restaurants

The location is picture-perfect with a beautiful roof top deck with panoramic views of the harbor and the town. The rooms are not huge, but decently sized and very clean and well-decorated. The staff offered a continental breakfast with delicious handmade scones and fruit and cereal. The inn is a half block from the main drag, Commercial Street. The wi-fi is a bit weak in signal though.

The place was nice but the staff left a bit to be desired. I felt a bit like an intrusion on his time and he really didnt speak to us much. But the location and breakfast and room were nice.
