We stayed here while attending Brimfield Antique show and the place was just fine. We had a nice size room with 2 queen beds that were very comfortable. The pillows on the beds were very firm just the way we like them so this was a plus for us. Our room had a view of the swimming pool with a... More

The rooms are comfortable and decorated well, clean and you can find coupons! There is a nice shop next door and the bakery has wonderful treats to take to your room or out sightseeing. Old Sturbridge Village is not far and I believe you get a discount coupon for staying at the Public House. IT is a beautiful place to... More

My wife and I travelled to Sturbridge MA for our joint birthdays and I was in a kind of historical mood. We travelled first to Westville Recreation area for a picnic lunch and reveled in the quiet and beauty of the lake formed by the Westville Dam. Than having driven around Sturbridge we checked into the Publick House Historic Inn.... More

My friend and I found this nice hotel via hotel coupon book. The setting was more for vacationers and people looking for historical settings, but even with our pickup truck and trailer, we were treated very well. The room was very nice and clean; no issues other than narrow driveways. Would go there again if in that area

Giving the motor lodge 2 star rating is generous. This "quaint" Inn is very old but the motor lodge section is very neglected. They are in process it seems with building another section to the original inn. That would certainly be a bonus but in the meantime guests are stuck in an old lodge. Not good. We would have left...

I want to be clear that this review is for the motor lodge and not the Inn itself. A friend was married at the Inn and it was well done, and other friends got a room at the Inn and it was fine. The staff at the registration desk were helpful and pleasant and each room came with coffee and... More

To stay in the old part really quaint and the staff are lovely. They have their own bakery so breakfast is an experience for the taste buds. Wedding' and functons catered for but noise cent to a minimum

I read the reviews for the motor lodge section but from the outside the buildings had lots of grassy area a pool and seem quiet. I know that many complained about the older furniture but I don't mind vintage as long as there is a good bed. There was not a good bed. The room smelled moldy/musty which I had... More

My wife and I had stayed here in the past during our antiquing days when we used to go to the Brimfield Markets. We haven't been in at least 14 years. I had business in nearby Auburn, MA and decided to stay here for old times sake. The hotel is a one of a kind inn and had been welcoming... More

We stayed here for a wedding about a month ago. The reception area and dining hall were very nice. Outdoor seating. The food was standard wedding food. They have a bar downstairs for those that want to stay out late. A coffee shop if you'd like a cup. It's located near shops, food and Sturbridge Village. We stayed in the... More
