We were looking for a place to stay outside of Boston and all the motels in this area seemed to be full. We found this one, overpriced, but thought we had no choice. We positively hated it and moved to the all-new Motel 6 for the rest of our stay. It was cheaper, much newer and cleaner.

So we had the boss book our room. Was shocked when we checked in. The outside looked promising, private entrances for each room. Our room smelled so bad! Like someone had locked themselves in for a year smoking cigarets & not bathing. The mattress was yellowed and sagged. The walls were dirty as if many things had been thrown at... More

My family and I decided to take a trip to Salem Massachusetts from Nova Scotia and not realizing how crazy busy the area is around Halloween, we hadn't made a reservation at any motels. We chose a random one off of our GPS and unfortunately, this is where we ended up. This motel was WAY overpriced for what it was.... More

Stayed there as part of our Big 2013 Road Trip. Pulled in late during a storm after seeing the bright neon sign on US 1, & asked to see a room. Staff acted like I was trying to defraud them. Room was adequate (nice older tile in the bath). Not very clean under furniture/counters. Very high price ($89) for what... More

At 9pm 2 people checked in on my right, within 20 minutes, the heaboard was thumping off the wall. This went , off and on, for 2 hrs. At 1am, very intoxicated couple checked... More

We left Boston and checked into this motel exhausted - Despite paying $85 for a room (the second highest amount of money we paid for accommodation on our month trip around the states) - it was awful. We felt like we'd stepped back into the 70s - carpet was threadbare, couldn't find a powerpoint to plug our phones into, the... More

Hello, This is the best bargain I could find in the Boston area. Nice and clean, parking in front of the roo, which makes me more relaxed even when I don't have tools in the back of a pick up, or am riding a motorcycle. Friendly staff. I have a leg that needs a couple of extra pillows, and they... More

I am a 100% disabled military veteran of the US Navy. I have a document from the Veterans Administration, which allows me to be accompanied anywhere by my two trained pet rabbits, which are labeled as "emotional support animals". They have traveled extensively with me, are litter box trained, and have never been a problem....until this time. The check-in clerk,... More

I stayed here one night. I was looking for something cheap. On my way out of Boston northbound on Route 1, I found this motel. It appeared clean enough. Though I saw a bug on the carpet. Bathroom was clean yet dated. The only functional electrical outlet that I could find was in the bathroom, but this was after I... More
