The people are very nice and you can see hard working. The grounds are kept and the room was clean. A good value for the dollar! The decor is outdated, and looked like an independently owned facility. Our room was very easily accessible and comfortable.

My wife and I stayed one night and was treated nicely at the front desk. The room was clean and surprisingly bigger than expected. It was perfect for a short stay and we certainly would stay there in the future. Additionally, the grounds were well taken care of and the swimming pool was very good. All in all a very... More

First thing when I got there I thought the woman at the office was very friendly and informative. I get to the room and as soon as I opened the door I almost passed out from the musty, stinky oder. The ceilings are very high and the room is a good size BUTTTT it is nasty. The faucet was dripping... More

I stayed here for one night, the room was good sized, but very outdated and shabby,, there was mold on the shower curtain and hardly any hot water, would not want to stay more than one night,, the grounds seemed nice and the location is central,, too bad the motel is not more up to date

The staff here was pleasant and the price was right. The room was reasonably clean, but is in serious need of refurbishment. The age of the carpeting caused a musty smell. But it was ok. It was tolerable.

This is definitely the worse motel I have stayed at. I don't know where to begin...the sheets had burn holes in them, the door frames had big gaps around them where snow was able to come in, we had to leave the heat on 90 degrees the whole time we were there because it blew slightly warm air, the hot...

I am from Gloucester and have stayed a few times. It is run by an Indien woman who is greedy an shows a vindictive pleasure from taking the cash from the many homeless people who stay there. There is a chubby cheerful man working there who gives the place a nice vibe but the rooms are nicotine stained and smell... More

This place should be condemned. I stoped by to check it out for a two night stay. I demanded to see the room first. When the door opened the smell brought tears to my eyes. The carpet was so heavily stained you wondered what color it was . The smell was as bad as it gets. I have stayed in... More

The desk employees were very friendly and helpful. This is a budget motel and it could use some updating. The owners of this motel seem to be trying. Our room was very large and relatively clean. There was no odor in the room and it was quiet through the night. For a one night stay it was more than adequate.

The new owners seem to be trying to make it better, but it's a dump. For the price, you can use another service to find entire apts or rooms to rent (I did, after the first night). The rooms smell moldy. Everything looks like it was last updated 20-30 years ago. Rooms are fairly dark. The pool is OK and... More
