This is a clean and very basic place to stay. There are no bottles of shampoo, hand lotion, hair dryers, clothes dryers or free breakfasts. We found it adequate as we typically arrive after ten and leave before nine in the morning. VERY conveniently across the street from the "T" station - in 10-15 minutes you can be in Quincy... More

This is a fine motel if you want to see Boston and not pay too much for a downtown place to stay. There is an excellent connection by train to downtown Boston. The trip takes about 30 minutes (one way). Trains depart very frequently. Tickets are relatively cheap. The room itself is dated, but everything you need for a good... More

When I entered the room, It was very clean and smelled nice. The large bed was quite comfortable and the bathrooms was clean. The staff was outstanding and helpful. There are however a few flaws. First, there are no dressers for your clothes, just two small shelves, so If you're there for two nights or more, you're living out of... More

Near interstate fast way in to Quincy, clean but old in renovation. Excellent staff very good parking with lots of space even for a truck. No free WIFI expensive. Small bathroom but clean good towels, sink in the room if you are 2 its great. Comfortable bed and pillows. Just for business or road trip.

Really basic but convenient. There were no hotel type luxuries but it wasn't hotel priced. It was pretty inexpensive. I'd stay there for a short stay. It's near a rotary (roundabout) and you have to drive on that to get around. I don't mind them but I know some folks do.

Ok look, you can't have too high an expectation when you stay in a motel. It's not going to be the ritz. However, I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Excellent location, literally a stone's throw from the train station, 5 minutes walk into the town and pretty quiet considering its on an intersection. Staff are polite and friendly, rooms... More

The room was very basic but clean with but no coffee/tea making facilities. The ensuite was extremely small, towels were thin. WiFi was a disaster, extremely slow and needed the IT support for connection to smart phones. Staff were helpful, Coffee available in the mornings in the Lobby. Motel 6 is in an excellent location for the MBTA red train... More

I would avoid this hotel, unless your finances absolutely require it. When I checked in at 3PM with a confirmed reservation they had booked me into a handicap access room. I was told that was the only room available (at 3PM really?). When I went into the room, the smell of smoking was quite strong, despite a prominent no smoking... More

This motel was horrid. We have stayed in Motel 6's in the past. This motel was not a good example of the chain and needs to be put under new management in my opinion. First, thing I noticed was the odor of urine from the bathroom. Smelled like a badly maintained nursing home. Wanted to go elsewhere, but we were... More
