Fabulous 8.6 From 37 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Good location, definitely a motel.
We enjoyed our stay at the Sands of Time. It is definitely a motel. We had one of the updated rooms. It was very musty when we 1st walked in but we were able to air it out pretty good by the afternoon. Showering was a little dicey as the water would fluctuate between hot and cold without moving the knobs. However, the staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean and the grounds were meticulously maintained. The pool was nice and it was a great location (.2 mi to town with a sidewalk so you could walk to a great coffee shop, bike path, lunch spots, etc). Overall, I'd recommend it for adults looking for a good location to bounce off from but this is definitely a motel.

Exceptional 10.0
It was a very brief eight hour stay. I am a resident of Martha's Vineyard returning from a business trip knowing I would miss the last ferry that evening so I booked at the Motor Inn knowing it was within walking distance of the ferry which I took early the following morning. It meant all of my expectations.

Well maintained throwback motel
Staff is really nice, the place is well maintained. Yes this place is a motel. Yes this place is “old”. But I’d call it a well preserved 70’s throwback, not some old motel. Good stay, I recommend
