Nice motel that is very, very friendly and accommodating for ferry goers to Martha's Vineyard. Staff and owner are so helpful and accommodating. We rented the family room in the farther back part of the complex and it was very large. My only concern was the damp or mildew scent that was overwhelming. I'm guessing that it's because it's all...

The most important thing is to understand what this place is: It is a family-run motel from the 60's that retains it original "character", with a convenient location, and is one of the very few choice in Woods Hole for accommodation. (There are no "five star" luxury hotels in Woods Hole.) This place does a wonderful job at being what... More

An older motel but extremely clean. It was hidden from the main road so we did not hear the traffic. The staff went out of their way to welcome us and their service was extraordinary. We could walk to the village in three minutes.

This wonderful little family-run motel is the perfect place to overnight, especially if you have missed the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. Run by Sandy and Andy with charm and kindness, it has everything you need for comfort, including coffee machine and a good price. We felt very comfortable there, especially since they were kind enough to come down to the... More

We spent two nights in Woods Hole and chose this place because of its location. It is very convenient to the Shining Sea Bike Path, although one does have to cross a busy street then go down a steep incline to get to the path. The Sleepy Hollow is also a couple of blocks to the village restaurants and even... More

I had to go to the Vineyard for an early evening event and needed a place to stay for one night, and this was just perfect. Sue, the proprietor, was very helpful. She sold us the Ferry tickets for Martha's Vineyard and told us how to walk down to the ferry dock. The room was comfortable, the bathroom was modern... More

About a 15 minute level walk to the center of town and even closer to the ferry terminal. The air-conditioned room was perfectly adequate and had the usual amenities. We did not use the pool although it looked tempting. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Classic motel from the 60's. Great location for walking to ferry, Nobska beach, Woods Hole. Great customer service, mailed me my extra key set that I left behind. Will stay again. Proximity to everything you could want is paramount and you can walk to everything, that's a big deal in WH where parking is almost non-existent during the work day.

Masstraveler_8, Owner at Sleepy Hollow Motor Inn, responded to this review

We certainly appreciate this positive review and the many other reviews that note our cleanliness. We don’t often notice musty odors but there’s no question that the humidity of our ocean side location can pose challenges in July. We wash walls, ceilings, and carpets on a regular basis and air the rooms out everyday. What we don’t do is assault... More

Very close to the ferry and clean, tidy, well run place. As others have said it is an older style motel but it is so well kept and with such accommodating staff that it feels very welcoming. Only suggestion would be to get rid of the old carpets as in the humidity they feel damp and sticky. This was our... More

We stayed here the night before going over to Martha's Vineyard for the day and couldn't really ask for more. After buying the ferry tickets at reception, it was an easy 10 minute stroll straight on to the boat. The room itself was large and clean, there was a pool which looked pretty good but we didn't have the time... More
