“Forget about any free parking for the ferry”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

Place is about as basic as it comes - no frills. The gal at the counter was helpful but definitely made it known up front that they charge the same amount as does the TVA. The TVA provides shuttle service - sleep hollow provides encouragement to walk a half a mile. :-)

We are a little baffled by this review. Most likely there was some confusion about this traveler's plans when he or she spoke to our desk clerk. We routinely offer guests free parking during day trips to Martha’s Vineyard. If this guest was improperly charged we’d be happy to refund the fee.

We are not in the parking business but when we have space available we also allow guests leaving for the Vineyard to park overnight for a $15 a day, the least expensive rate in the village. Some guests appreciate this because the Steamship Authority customarily uses remote lots and shuttle buses to deliver travelers to their terminal. We are about ½ mile from the terminal; it’s not a difficult walk but we make frequent trips to transport guests back and forth. We just can’t guarantee that this service is always available. We also sell ferry tickets and are happy to offer Vineyard tourism advice.

The other reviews this summer from Senior and Top Contributors offer a much more accurate description of our accommodations.

Woods Hole is such a wonderful small village to stay in with Sleepy Hollow within easy walking distance of the ferry to Martha's Vineyard and multiple restaurants to choose from. The bathroom has been updated; the room was very clean and comfortable. I think an excellent deal for staying right on the cape.

Room Tip: I chose a first floor room at the back of the Inn for quiet and ease of access.

This is a general note of appreciation to the guests who have posted reviews this past summer. We particularly value the comments from Senior and Top Contributors. We don’t agree with all of the comments (we prefer “devastatingly attractive” to “cute”) but overall the reviews offer an honest impression of our accommodations. We were built around 1960 and are located in the Woods Hole Historic District so we are and hope to continue to be a classic motor inn. We try to offer our guests the three things that we find most important in our own travels: affordability, hospitality, and cleanliness.

While Sleepy Hollow is not a 5-star inn in the sense that you can expect lots of luxury, I rate it five-stars for what it is: a motor inn.

We stayed here one night on our way to the Martha's Vineyard Ferry. The ferry is just minutes from the inn, so it's incredibly convenient. We checked in fairly late at night, and the innkeeper was very friendly and helpful at registration.

The inn has been updated, but it is clearly an older building and layout. Rooms are small, as are shower stalls (always a problem for my 6-foot plus husband) but very comfortable and incredibly clean.

Overall, I was prepared to be disappointed (as I only ended up staying there because my first choice B&B was booked) but I pleasantly surprised. We got a good night's sleep in a convenient location, which was exactly what I wanted. This cute little motor inn really raises the bar for places in this category. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again on future trips to Martha's Vineyard.

We planned a one-day bicycle trip over to Martha's Vineyard - and wanted to get an early start. The Sleepy Hollow Motor Inn was perfect! It's nothing fancy - our room was small with a cute bath tub - very clean - and we didn't hear any road noise. The staff is incredibly friendly and accomodating - and the owner gave us some great hints for biking around MV. The ferry and Woods Hole village is easy walking distance. We were able to leave our car at the inn for the day - and picked it up on our way out of town. We'd definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: If you're close to the road - it will be very quiet - except when traffic starts coming in to ca...

Great pool. Cute rooms. Clean. Nice towels. Nice people at front desk. Friendly housekeepers. Another time when we stayed, the room had the cutest bathtub ever. I wonder if I've used 200 words yet like I'm supposed to. Nope, I guess not. Ok. Not fancy, but really nice.

Great choice for anyone who is wanting to visit Wood's Hole or Martha's Vineyard via the ferry. We stayed here 2 nights and were very comfortable. The room was clean and the owners and staff were very friendly. We stayed in a queen bed room near the back part of the motel. We could hear a little road noise but it wasn't a problem. The room was small and the shower stall was a tight fit. Overall, this is a good choice in Wood's Hole if you are going to spend your time exploring the area.

We stayed here for three nights. Owners are wunderful and will help you with every question or problem you have. The motel is a little outdated, but everything is very clean and they have a nice pool. You can walk to woods hole or to the ferry to martha's vineyard, and as parking space is little in town this is a plus too.
