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.

Let me start by saying I was shocked by the room we stayed in and would have left if I could have found any other hotel with a vacancy. It looked like something out of a 1970's home. The mattress had springs that dug into our backs and the pillows were old and lumpy. Both were in need of serious... More

Live, LOUD music from bar beneath our rooms till midnight. Very shabby rooms. The night staff were a little sympathetic to my complaint and said they would ask band to lower the bass, which I don't believe happened! Is this a hotel or NIGHTCLUBS? Would not recommend this place to my worst enemy.

I am sorry that you were unhappy with your room and the live music. I have spoken with the lounge staff about keeping the music lower in the future. More

Stayed for 2 nights while visiting friends. Room was on the 2nd floor with a beautiful lake view. The room hadn't been remodeled yet and showed some signs of age. The door needed a bit of force to completely shut and latch. The furniture and tv were old and the carpet had some stains/wear. Bed was nice and comfortable and... More
