My mom and I spent four days at the Cape recently, and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Sands of Time has a lovely staff, and the location is the best! It's a short walk into town and to the ferry, so you never have to deal with parking. It's also right next to the Shining... More

My husband, daughter (6 months old) and I were in Falmouth for a few days and stumbled across the sands of time. From the moment I walked in and was greeted by Carol I knew we would love it there! Eveything was clean and well cared for. Everyone that works there is clearly happy to be there and it shows... More

I missed the last ferry and was able to get a last minute late room. When I left early in the morning for the first ferry I realized too late I'd left my anniversary earring in the room. The earring had been found and the manager had been holding it for me - until I was able to return 2... More

My family stayed at the Sands of Time every summer for many, many years - often for as long as a month in the summer, and we would still be going there regularly if we had not recently bought a place or our own in the area. It would definitely be my top choice for housing any overflow guests who... More

The Sands of Time is really two places, the Motor Inn and the Harbor House. Based on the reports of my traveling companions, I think I'd rather sleep in my car than in the Motel. On the other hand, my room in the Harbor House was delightful. My wife loved the pictures and really wants to go. I had a... More
