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...

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...

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...

We stayed 2 nights in a a first floor room with two doubles and a lovely view of the water. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. We asked for a refrigerator and it was set up for us on arrival. We were pleasantly surprised by the flat screen TV and the Wi-Fi worked well for us. We...

We visited Woods Hole and the Falmouth area. There are a lot of expensive B & Bs and hotels, but when I researched where to stay that this place had great location and reasonably priced. We have been here four days in room121 and other rooms have a great view of the harbor. It's only 2 blocks to the Main...

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...

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...
