We found Sands of Time in a Lonely Planets Guide Book, rather than scouring Tripadvisor, mainly as we hadn't planned on visiting Woods Hole at all! Anyway, it turned out to be a good choice. The staff were friendly and the rooms spacious, bright and clean. Our ground floor room had sliding glass doors opening onto a view over the... More

The rooms are clean, but as others have noted, they are also quite dated. The walls are also very thin, and although I am not a light sleeper, I was woken up by my neighbor's snoring and another's loud music playing. You'll also hear a steady flow of traffic right outside your door going to and from the ferry. The... More

We we're excited to visit what we thought would be a quaint motel near the water. We booked two rooms. Upon entering each room, we were greeted by the sickening smell of old cigarette smoke and musty carpets. The telephone in one room was completely dead. Very limited parking and rude overnight manager. Could not wait to get out of... More

Hotel went out of their way to help - when the local taxi company didn't turn up one of the hotel employees actually very kindly drove me to the wedding... More

Stayed here while at a conference in nearby WHOI. The motel is a convenient and pleasant 10 min walk from Water St with restaurants etc and only another couple of minutes to the conference venue. 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

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
