We have stayed here about four times when we have had an early morning ferry to catch the next day. It is clean, dependable, generally quiet and most of all convenient. When we arrive it's after an 11 hour car trip, we check in, walk to town for our first lobster dinner of the trip, go back to the room,... More

We appreciate your comments and your repeat business. We wish your ratings were higher, others have been, but this is an honest review. We are an older motel but we work very hard to provide first rate service and cleanliness. Please let us know if you notice any specific problems when you stay with us. More

I stayed here for a good friends wedding this past September and have no real complaints. This is a quintessential no frills motor lodge. You know what to expect the second you look at pictures of the place. The rooms are small and basic but comfortable enough. The Sleepy Hollow is just a few minutes walk or extremely short drive...

We stayed here for a wedding. I had never been to New England before...and I absolutely loved it! This hotel is perfect for this little area. Charming and cozy...just like Woods Hole. I love to walk around...and you could literally walk to pretty much everything there! The room was a perfect size for my boyfriend and I. The shower stall... More

Place is about as basic as it comes - no frills. The gal at the counter was helpful but definitely made it known up front that they charge the same amount as does the TVA. The TVA provides shuttle service - sleep hollow provides encouragement to walk a half a mile. :-)

We are a little baffled by this review. Most likely there was some confusion about this traveler's plans when he or she spoke to our desk clerk. We routinely offer guests free parking during day trips to Martha’s Vineyard. If this guest was improperly charged we’d be happy to refund the fee. We are not in the parking business but... More

Woods Hole is such a wonderful small village to stay in with Sleepy Hollow within easy walking distance of the ferry to Martha's Vineyard and multiple restaurants to choose from. The bathroom has been updated; the room was very clean and comfortable. I think an excellent deal for staying right on the cape.

This is a general note of appreciation to the guests who have posted reviews this past summer. We particularly value the comments from Senior and Top Contributors. We don’t agree with all of the comments (we prefer “devastatingly attractive” to “cute”) but overall the reviews offer an honest impression of our accommodations. We were built around 1960 and are located... More

While Sleepy Hollow is not a 5-star inn in the sense that you can expect lots of luxury, I rate it five-stars for what it is: a motor inn. We stayed here one night on our way to the Martha's Vineyard Ferry. The ferry is just minutes from the inn, so it's incredibly convenient. We checked in fairly late at... More

We planned a one-day bicycle trip over to Martha's Vineyard - and wanted to get an early start. The Sleepy Hollow Motor Inn was perfect! It's nothing fancy - our room was small with a cute bath tub - very clean - and we didn't hear any road noise. The staff is incredibly friendly and accomodating - and the owner... More

Great pool. Cute rooms. Clean. Nice towels. Nice people at front desk. Friendly housekeepers. Another time when we stayed, the room had the cutest bathtub ever. I wonder if I've used 200 words yet like I'm supposed to. Nope, I guess not. Ok. Not fancy, but really nice.

Great choice for anyone who is wanting to visit Wood's Hole or Martha's Vineyard via the ferry. We stayed here 2 nights and were very comfortable. The room was clean and the owners and staff were very friendly. We stayed in a queen bed room near the back part of the motel. We could hear a little road noise but... More

We stayed here for three nights. Owners are wunderful and will help you with every question or problem you have. The motel is a little outdated, but everything is very clean and they have a nice pool. You can walk to woods hole or to the ferry to martha's vineyard, and as parking space is little in town this is... More

The Sleepy Hollow is a classic motor inn providing affordable accommodations in historic Woods Hole Village. Innkeeper/owner Sandee Parmelee spent years working at first class B&Bs before acquiring the Sleepy Hollow. Her experience is reflected in the effort that goes into providing clean, well-maintained rooms. The ferry to Martha's Vineyard, beaches, aquarium, museums, restaurants, and other attractions are within easy walking distance. We're also a great starting point for trips to other Cape Cod destinations. ... more   less
