I saw a lot of potential when I first walked through the doors of this hotel. Me and my boyfriend Paul we're headed to Maine and this was just a stop to rest. I remember us both passing out in their lobby. The front desk was excellent in getting us a room quickly at 11 in the morning. We had... More

I booked this place through Orbitz and they said they offered free breakfast. Not so! It was false advertising....they only offer 20% off. I specifically look for free breakfast since I am traveling with a hungry teen. Also--and this is even worse--they had a band playing in their lounge and it was so loud I could hear it in my...

Check in staff were delightful when we arrived. Very welcoming and told us of the 20% off voucher available to us for breakfast as our room rate did not include breakfast. We were given a room on the second floor which had obviously been refurbished. The only downside of the room was the bed. The mattress felt old and uncomfortable.... More

For the "Boston area", you can't beat the price. Apparently an old motor court, it's undergoing "renovation" to dress the old lady up. The room was clean and comfortable, but there was a used coffee filter in the coffee machine. There was trash in the hall (and the floors in the hall are uneven!), dirt on the floor (yes I... More

Excellent experience, as usual. We stay there pretty much every time we visit the area, which is about twice a year. The location is so convenient for our needs. Property recently renovated and looks great. The employees couldn't be nicer and extremely helpful. Our latest visit put us there during one of the many snow storms that have recently plagued...

I always try to stay at this Hotel when I am in Massachusetts, which is about four times in a year. The rooms have been recently renovated, and the setting by the lake is beautiful. The free morning breakfast is liberal and satisfying.

I had a chance to stay here recently on business. I was a little reluctant to choose this property as a while ago when I went here service was poor, confused, and wires and things were hanging everywhere. This time a much different story a testimony as to how things can change and to give them a chance. Many items... More

Nice location, but it is just a old hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful, but rooms just need an update. Plenty of parking and close to Boston. It really needs a make over to really get back to attracting a bigger clientele.
