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

We attended my nephew's wedding there and we stayed there as well. The Wedding Venue and the property were top notch. The food was outstanding and the staff were awesome! The hotel was ok. We stayed in the Motor Lodge part and let's just say it was like taking a step back in time to the 1970's. The rooms need... More

Found this historic hotel by chance (the hotel guides in the local ad books). The Inn proper is overflowing with history and charm. We were able to get a two room which were connected by an private staircase; a pleasant surprise as the kids could sleep in one room and the parents in the other but still be accessible. The...

Ordered the spinach salad with candied walnuts, goat cheese and cranberries. The dressing was made with maple syrup. It was delicious. The other salad was the house salad called the Publick House salad. Both were fresh. Next, was the turkey dinner with real mashed potatoes and squash. I did not want the sausage stuffing that usually accompanies this dish. The... More

We had planned to go to Hershey but were exhausted so called ahead to Publick House via Hotels.com. Good rate but the date was messed up. Called the site and the hotel changed the date quickly. Off to bed with no muss, no fuss. We love the restaurant, with a discount, breakfast is a deal! We, however, opted for the... More

I've stayed here before, but this time I was here for 3 nights. Wonderful, comfortable beds and linens (though I'm not a fan of the pillow; no problem, I travel with one.) Rooms are roomy, the weather was nice enough to use the balcony, and I love the property. I prefer staying in the Lodge.
