Reviewed December 3, 2013

Me and my boyfriend had such a great time at the Woods Hole Inn. It was in a great location! The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was very nice and comfortable. We would definitely recommend the Wood's Hole Inn to anyone who wants a relaxing or romantic vacation :) Very pleased!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a king size bed; they are all great!

The Woods Hole Inn was a lovely place to stay. We found the Inn through a LivingSocial coupon. For a reasonable rate we received a two night stay, extended parking, a cheese board and a bottle of prosecco upon arrival, and bike rentals for 2. Given the deal, I was worried this place would be a dump.

I shouldn't have worried. The Inn was recently renovated and the rooms were very charming. The Inn had nice common spaces, and the staff was friendly and accommodating.

The location was also terrific. It was a few minute walk to the island ferry or the wonderful Shining Sea bike trail. And it was a 10 minute drive to Falmouth, which has great restaurants and shops.

My only complaint was that the parking lot is too small, requiring blocking in other guests and leaving your keys at the front desk. And the breakfast was often carb heavy.

Otherwise, it was a wonderful little place.

We live in Woods Hole, but needed a place to stay while having work done on our home. We stayed in the Penzance room, which was lovely. It has a deck overlooking the town and steamship (which is not that great to look at, but sunset was really nice). I looked at a few other rooms, and they all looked comfortable. The inn is decorated beautifully, and was very comfortable to stay. The staff was excellent, I think this represents the owner, and I was impressed. Breakfast was superb, better than any other B&B I have stayed. Off season rates were reasonable. I highly recommend the inn when staying in Woods Hole.

I stayed in the Penzance room. It was a very spacious room. My boyfriend and I were able to do yoga in there. I loved the bathroom, especially the rain fall showerhead and bath tub. The balcony desk was also amazing, with a view of the water. Overall, the room was amazing and really made the trip romantic. The staff was super friendly and easy to talk to. I hope to go again, it was that amazing. :)

Having moved to the area in the past 2 years this was our first visit to the Cape Cod area. We know enough to avoid this area in the summer due to crowds, but wanted to go somewhere to celebrate our anniversary. Wood's Hole is centrally located to the center town area, which is very small. This time of year there are only 3 restaurants open for lunch and dinner and all we easily walkable from the inn. The inn is very quiet with little noise heard from other guests and the place was full despite the time of year. The continental breakfast is above average for a B&B and the staff was very helpful and accommodating. The only complaint was that our room (which was nice sized) need to be cleaned better, especially in the area of dusting. We will definitely come back again as this area is beautiful and especially nice and quiet this time of year.

Room Tip: Get one of the suites if you can afford it which is easier in the off season.

I have to start out by saying thank you for a wonderful weekend. The room was clean and very inviting. The cheese and cracker platter was yummy as well as the champagne. The directions given to us for our late arrival were just perfect. Breakfast each morning was so delicious I think I over eat a bit. All staff members were very real and hospitable. For a weekend alone with your spouse I would definitely recommend this place. Perfect place to unwind and reconnect.

We stayed for two nights in theNobska room. The room was very comfortable; the bed was great and the sheets were the softest I've ever slept on. Breakfasts were quite good-- I really enjoyed the yogurt, fruit, and granola. Everyone was helpful and very pleasant. We would definitely go back.
