From the minute I drove up in the parking lot and was greeted by Sam...to the minute I pulled out 4 days later waving goodbye to Jonathan and Will, everything exceeded my expectations! Gwen and Cayley at front desk went out of their way to leave me ice to continue the therapy on knee replacement, along with directions on where... More

I was directed to this inn by a stranger as I needed to stay for a night near the harbour. This inn is at an excellent location. The staff are warm and friendly. I got a corner room with a big bathroom. The room was done up thoughtfully with paintings of the inn on the walls. I loved my stay.... More

Location, location, location is about all we can say concerning our recent stay at the Woods Hole Inn. Admittedly, there were six of us attempting to be comfortable in two rooms while sharing a rather small and sub-standard bathroom with one door that we had to use a waste basket to keep closed, but I must report that, other than...

Dear Mike - I am so sorry you were not totally comfortable in our "vintage restored" B&B in the center of Woods Hole. Room 8/9 where you stayed is a renovated suite with two rooms and the bathroom set between them. One room has a queen bed and the second room has two queen beds. Both rooms look out over... More

The room was great; the service attentive. The parking lot attendant was particularly helpful. Parking in WH is near impossible; the Inn offers a small lot attended by knowledgeable staff person. It's as if your talented grandma cooked breakfast. Each morning, different breakfast items --very nice.

The Woods Hole Inn was the best experience I have had on the Cape ever! The location is great; you can walk to anything you need and the view is so relaxing. We stayed in the Nobska room which had more room than a mini suite in most hotels...the bathroom was amazing. The staff are wonderful; we arrived two hours... More

A really lovely room in a great location -- we only stayed one night during our B&B driving vacation, but this was the best place we stayed. Although it was a little chilly to sit on our private balcony, we appreciated the in-room TV, the comfortable bed and the lovely breakfast. It was right across the street from a bicycle... More

I just kept taking photos of the decor, so gorgeous. Looked like an Architectural Digest spread! The common areas were really lovely and comfortable. The lovely Beth was a gracious and warm host. The stairwell wallpaper was made from sign in slips of yesteryear. Have a read and try to figure out if someone was with their wife or girlfriend...lots... More

We are on a 3 week road trip of the east coast. So we only were scheduled for one night at this wonderful place. But as soon as we arrived we knew we had to stay more. It is in a perfect location and They save a place for you to park and even take your luggage in when you... More

The Inn at Woods Hole is a lovely place to stay right in the middle of Woods Hole, close to restaurants and stores. There are few rooms and it feels like a house, with common spaces downstairs for reading and having your morning breakfast, as well as a deck on the second floor where you can sit and rest during...

I really liked this place! The room we had was described as the one for those who missed the ferry- so my expectations were low. We were very pleasantly surprised. The room was quirky but very clean. Breakfast was outstanding, and the entire staff was wonderful. CM
