If your looking for Buckingham palace you will be disappointed.There is a bed in a room with a door that locks behind you and so if you want more go somewhere else and pay for it. The place is basic and I like it that way. I like the simplicity and freedom of the place. I can smoke, relax, come... More

This was overall an okay place to stay. We were a little put off by staff behind the Plexiglas and having to slide our credit card under a little slot - making us think we weren't staying in a safe part of town. We also had to heave quite a bit to get our door open - very rough and... More

This was our second stay at this hotel, and we continue to be entirely satisfied here. The immediate area is unattractive, there is practically no dining at hand, and certainly no soothing views of your surroundings. That said, Malden was once a perfectly respectable working class town, the hometown of Ed Ames and the other Ames Brothers (really brothers), who... More

room was clean, requested extra pillow, iron and iron board, all was taken care of without any reminder. . . bust stop right in front of the hotel makes it easy to commute even if it rains or snows. . . recommended if you are looking for a budge hotel

I booked a non smoking king room and was asked twice if I wanted a smoking room. I don't know why since I'm not a smoker. In any case there's no elevator and I can't go up the stairs due to a knee injury. I had no choice but to take a smoky room with a queen bed on the... More

If you need to be in Malden, this is OK for a night. Otherwise, avoid it. The latch to the room door has been ripped off. The continental breakfast is sparse. A/C worked well. The HD TV was in the room as advertised but with no channels in HD. See front desk for ice. The free wifi is slow.

This hotel wasn't terrible, but there wasn't anything great about it either. Front desk service was often surly and also uninformed about the local area (I was looking for somewhere to purchase hair care products). I chose this hotel for the price and proximity to public transportation, and I got those, but the service was very much less then impressive... More

Walls paper thin. Lots of noise ( we were on first floor) Large amount of mold on ceiling near fire alarm fixture - otherwise clean. Check - in person was behind glass enclosure (not a secure feeling for us)

They helped me check in early and accomodated us without any hassle. The managers were always there to help and were friendly. We slept like babies. Good for the price. And really close to Boston as the orange line runs only two miles from here.
