FAQ

Should we rent a car to get to Provincetown?

Provincetown is very pedestrian friendly and cars are really not necessary to get around. We also offer our guests the complimentary use of bikes each day. Cabs are available throughout the year and Pedi cabs are available in season. There are many other options for getting to P-town, including Cape Air (year around) and the ferry (in season).


Will you pick us up at the airport/pier?

We are pleased to provide complimentary transfers to/from the Provincetown Municipal Airport or the MacMillan Pier for guests of the inn. We ask you to either request a transfer during the reservation process or at least 48 hours before your arrival to ensure that we are able to confirm your transfer in advance.


Do you have parking?

Parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis, however there is generally sufficient compact parking for each room to park one car.  We do retain keys of cars on the premises in order to afford other guests access to their vehicles.  Should you need to use your vehicle with some frequency, we recommend that you choose to park in a nearby municipal lot where you can have free access to your vehicle.


Do you have any rooms with two beds?

All of our rooms feature one king-size or queen-size bed and are designed for a party of two, except Room 8, which is a king-size bed that can be converted to two twin beds. Please inform us when you reserve Room 8 that you wish to have it converted into two twins.


Do all of your rooms offer air-conditioning?

All of our rooms feature air conditioning with a thermostat in each room. It is important to the functioning of the system that guests not run the air conditioning while the windows are open.

During certain holiday weekends and themed weeks, our minimum stay is three- or seven-nights.

Our normal check-in hours are 2-6 p.m., but we make every effort to accommodate early arrivals. If needed, we will store your bags and let you get started with your day. Rooms are invariably available at 2 p.m. and sometimes earlier. Check-out time is 11 a.m. If your have a later departure, we will be happy to store your bags so you may and stay and enjoy the inn’s many amenities until your departure.


What is your cancellation policy?

Cancellations are permitted up to 21 days before arrival. All cancellations must be made in writing via email to 8 Dyer. A fee equal to 10% of the total reservation will be charged for all cancellations and no-shows. If you cancel less than 21 days before arrival, you will forfeit your deposit. If you cancel within 3 days of your scheduled arrival, you will be charged the full balance of the reservation. Your reservation is not cancelled until you receive a cancellation email from our office. Travel insurance is often worth the small cost and is available during the reservation process or by visiting insuremytrip.com.


Can we depart earlier than expected if something comes up?

You are welcome to leave early; however, early departures are considered cancellations of nights reserved and are non-refundable. We highly recommend travel insurance to protect against last-minute emergencies. You may purchase trip insurance at competitive rates when making your reservation or use the site Insure My Trip insuremytrip.com to get quotes from many insurance providers. Either way, you will have coverage for delays or cancellations due to weather, peril, job loss, and medical crisis. The policies have added benefits for medical care while away, including medical evacuation.
