We were searching for a room on a Sat eve when most places were sold out. After many unsuccessful calls & dealing with very unhelpful front desk help at the other hotels, happily it all turned around when we contacted this property.

It's walking distance to the stadium and a reasonable property. Nothing fancy but exactly as advertised. The one drawback is there isn't a laundry room. There is a dunkin donut and a friendliest restaurant right next door so food is easily available. Property clean and we'll maintained.

Andover doesn't have many options, so if you can't get a room at the Andover Inn, you need to be realistic and go for the much less charming, but clean, reasonably priced and conveniently located to the highway option. Despite being directly off I-495, the rooms were quiet, good sized, clean and comfortable. Didn't eat the complimentary breakfast, but it... More

This hotel had a funny smell in the hallway and in the room. The room is very outdated, did not feel comfortable at all. While sitting at the desk, little flies would be flying about. There were dead little flies in the bathtub and on the window sill, the following morning I had put in a request to have the... More

Ripped mattress with no cover, printer broken down so unable to print boarding pass (no offer to print using the front desk), no bar, unruly party of children running wild at 3 am, tasteless breakfast. Avoid if at all possible and stay at the Andover Inn, Radisson or Courtyard by Marriott nearby.
