Why Come By Helicopter When You Can Arrive By Chariot At This Provincetown Hotel?

How do you like to reach your hotel? By car? Public transport? Chartered helicopter? Or by chariot?
Yup, when we stayed at the Cape Colony Inn in Provincetown MA, we found chariots mentioned in their detailed transportation guide.
Of course, they’re not real chariots – they’re pedicabs. But any hotel with a sense of humor is a hotel for us.
In fact, although the Cape Colony Inn is more of a motel than a posh hotel, we couldn’t fault it. Large, spotless rooms, tasteful – nay, even boutiquey – decor, Keurig coffee machines, and comfortable Simmons beds. They have a pool… and shuffleboard... and, more importantly, great customer service (they actually upgraded us to a two-bedroom suite because we had a terrible cold and feared passing it on to our travel companion).
The Inn is a block back from the beach, and about a mile outside Provincetown proper. Talking of which, it's gay-friendly, though that's kind of a given in P-town. For our dates, out of season, it was significantly cheaper than other options nearby (around $100); right now, it’s pretty sold out, but if you can find the right dates, summer rates start at $179.
