I've stayed there dozens of times. Knew the owners. The restaurant next door, The Dome, was built by Buckminster Fuller.
The rooms are highly variable because the hotel buildings are different ages and of differing types. You pays yer nickel and takes yer chances. Ask the inn keeper about the specific room. The view of the harbor includes the famous F. L. Wright Airplane House on Juniper Point, the coupolaed ancient Crane Residence, a swatch of MV and a Coast Guard base, and beautiful boats at moorings there in Woods Hole's Little Harbor. The hotel is walking distance to everything in Woods Hole. All the beaches are Townie restricted, but feet need no "beach stickers". Also long walking distance is Nobska Lighthouse, on one of the most photogenic points in the world, overlooking Martha's Vineyard. The deep grass on the hillside under the lighthouse is a great place to cuddle and smooch after dark. Can't be seen from the road.

We stayed in the "first floor" apartment, which is actually a basement with windows. Although the living room does look out onto the swimming pool, since you are looking from below-ground level this is not such a plus. The owners were very nice; but we had been told when we booked the apartment that it was "wonderful and in high demand" and great for families. Unfortunately, it was very damp and depressing. We called it the hobbit hole! The town of Woods Hole is wonderful, but we'd recommend getting an upstairs room in the old part of the inn, with a view of the water.

We stayed in the old inn portion of this hotel and the room was quite nice. The window stuck a little and the doors didn't quite line up properly, but nothing you wouldn't expect in an old place. It was generally clean and we had a great view of the water. The staff was very nice--they all seemed to be semi-retired locals--and they were eager to make suggestions on things to do and see. It's a nice walk down the hill to the Nantucket/Martha's Vineyard ferry and to the shops and restaurants. The oceanographic institute is a little further (maybe 12 minutes) but this is a very walkable area. The continental breakfast was a coffee pot and a couple of boxes of Dunkin' Donuts Munchkins by the front desk, so you might want to head into town for something more. It looked like the motor inn part wasn't quite as nice, but those rooms do have small balconies.
