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

Couples trip, we stayed at the "Harbor House" which had views overlooking the bay. The room we stayed in was a large, old, rustic sort of master bedroom with a full walk-in closet and full bathroom. The staff were very friendly to us and gladly answered any questions we had. An example of "going above and beyond" was when they... More

Great Little Place To Stay! After A Long Day, And Some Bad Stays Elsewhere.. We Were WelcomeD With Open Arms! Clean Rooms, Great View, Very Friendly Management & Staff. Close To The Ferry To Martha's Vineyard. Very Charming. We Loved It And Would Definitely Stay Here Again!

The rooms in the motel are front to back so everyone has an ocean view. Within walking distance to the restaurants and the ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. Nice decks to view the ocean. We have been here several times and never disappointed!

The best hotel for me in the Falmouth/Woods Hole area of Cape Cod is Sands of Time Motor Inn & Harbor House. First on my list of reasons is location. It sits right around the corner from the delightful village of Woods Hole. If you turn right at the driveway a five-minute walk brings you to "Pie in the Sky"... More

If the only thing available is the motel part of this place, then stay away (unless they have updated, which I doubt.) The old house up on the hill is charming and I loved it- and can't wait to return! The upper rooms are nicer - better view - especially the top floor room (a bit smaller, but better views).... More
