Rooms in the motel section are very dated but pleasant (peach colored toilet anyone?). Beds are comfortable, the room is large (had 2 queens) with... More

This trip was a 2 week 25th wedding anniversary (Bucket List) journey thru vermont into Cape Cod. Woods Hole was the start of our memoriable journey. First, I have to compliment Arnie, I made so many phone calls pre arrival, I think I made him nuts. Upon arrival @ 5:00 pm we received such a warm welcome, a bottle of... More

Four of us took two rooms in the main house of this motel and after we oohed and aahed at our own harbour view, we went into our friends room and gasped at theirs. Just beautiful! Very large rooms, one with a little kitchenette and a very pretty dining area by the double windows where we ate breakfast every morning.... More

I booked #135, an ocean view room in Harbor House, a grand old home which can be seen from the ocean. Graciously proportioned room with a huge comfortable bed, flat screen TV of course, and staff ready to assist with anything. It's a super short saunter into the heart of Woods Hole yet just far away enough to avoid any... More

This is a lovely motel, with fantastic views over Little Harbor, Woods Hole; and a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. I have stayed here several times now with various family members, and most recently my fiancé; so it is a motel full of wonderful memories for me! I have always had rooms in the motor inn, and love the balconies overlooking the... More

It is very near to all the great shops and restaurants along with historical buildings that Woods Hole has to offer and its a great place as well. Sitting high atop a hill with sweeping views of Woods hole harbor and the Coast... More

We stayed at the Harbor House, room 141. Another reviewer said it reminded them of staying at their grandmother's house, and it definitely had the feel of a well-cared for charming old home. Our room had a great view overlooking the Harbor from a old multi-paned wood trimmed bay window. The gardens were lovely, even in late August when the... More
