We stayed at the Sands the other night and had a great experience. The rooms were spacious and clean. We had a balcony with a wonderful view of a cove, where you can see Martha's Vineyard in the distance. We were able to walk into town to have dinner and breakfast the next morning. Btw...the restaurants are pretty good in... More

I stayed at Sands of Time during an upgrade to their Wi-Fi / Internet system. As a visiting investigator at the Marine Biological Laboratory, I considered Wi-Fi connectivity at my room a necessity rather than a perk. When I arrived, it was nearly unusable: signal strength only poor to fair, Internet access spotty. My cellphone constantly rotated among the various... More

My two kids and I stayed at Sands of Time for 2 nights. We were in room 103, the motor lodge. We had a nice king size bed and a great view of the ocean. The owners were very accomodating to my Dad who was in Room 101 who needed an accessible room. Lovely little stay. Nice warm outdoor pool... More

Sands of time was very clean, and comfortable with a beautiful view of the ocean from the deck off our room. It was a very easy walk into town and to the beach. Management was incredibly friendly and helpful. It's perfect for a stop before or after the vineyard as it's steps away from the ferry. We will be back.

My husband and I stayed one night at the Sands of Time, in the Harbor House. We were surprised to be in such a lovely Victorian home! The pictures we had seen were of the motor inn. Our room was overlooking the Little Harbor and just steps away from Wood's Hole downtown and the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. We were... More

From our spacious balcony we have a beautiful view of the harbor. We can watch the ferries come and go to Martha's Vineyard. The Coast Guard station is right there. We walked a short distance to have beers and some of the most delicious food last night. Today was a brunch at the best bakery I have ever been in.... More

Drove to Woods Hole, and decided to spend the day on the islands. Booked a room, parked the car, and took the ferry to the islands. Spent the day, and came back on the last ferry. Great place. Nice to go to a clean, friendly motel, and get away from the high price chain hotels. Walking distance to everything in... More

We stayed only one night but Carol at the front desk was lovely. They were extremely friendly and went out of their way to make sure our stay was enjoyable. We stayed in the harbour house, yes it is old, but was roomy and comfortable. A lovely visit to a lovely little place.

Wonderful place with a view of the water and walking distance to Ferries. Friendly staff, almost like family. Rooms very clean . Just loved the atmosphere. We liked the downstairs location with a garden outside the patio.
