2/10 Poor

Not star worthy
I booked a night here because my boyfriend and I didn’t want to travel back home too late from traveling. Bed was ROCK hard and disgusting. I’ve been having a stiff neck for the last 5 days because of the uncomfortableness. The hall ways and the room smelt like cigarettes and dust, there was no elevator so we had to carry our luggages up and down the stairs. The shower wouldn’t shut off fully so it was dripping all night. When we first got there it was sketchy looking with a bunch of people just sitting outside smoking cigarettes. Only plus of the AC and the front desk ladies were very kind. I wouldn’t recommend this to no one! You get what you pay for I guess.

Location good but rest ??
Went to stay cause we had a busy weekend an we never stay right downtown. The location worked for us as we was only there to change clothes an sleep . But the room itself could use some updates. The bed was so hard omg it was hard not comfortable at all. There was a nice fire pit outside in the back an a sitting area but no one told us about that we found it as we went to look at the pool only to find out it was broken no note on it though over heard other customers. Temperature was 98-100 pool would of been great at nite . The staff was not very helping at all .

Not spectacular but did the job
Needed a place to stay on short notice. The outside of the building isnt much but the lobby is beautiful. I was on the second floor. Hallway was hot and musty smelling, but it was 99° that day. My room was nice and cool and had no odor so thats really all that mattered. Carpets need to be cleaned or replaced. Beds were super comfy, staff was very friendly and didnt hear any noise while trying to sleep. Overall, it was a good stay and will go back if in the area again.

Love this little Inn!
This is a nice little hotel with a nice easy drive into boston and economical if reservations made on internet. The staff is always so friendly and helpful. I have stayed here a total of about 6 nights this year and they never fail to prove themselves

4/10 Fair

I called, was told pool was open, when we arrived pool was not and had not been open in some time. Refrigerator in room did not work, told front desk, no follow up. There was a large dark red stain on side of mattress. TV had to be re-programmed, input switched each time it was turned on. Could only power on/off by touching the TV itself, no through the remote. No effort on the part of staff to compensate for any aspect described above.

Comfortable and quiet.
The place was fine if a little pricey for what you get- although the whole area is expensive.
