Stayed here for one night during a family get together. Boston is an insanely expensive city to stay in...especially in the summer. This hotel was expensive in my opinion....but very much more affordable than anything else I saw in the area. It was clean, comfortable, quiet, and accommodating. We asked for a roll-away bed as we were 5 people in... More

We were in the area for my daughters surgery. The stay was great, the staff was great and very helpful.The room was very clean and worked well for us. The Hotel is surrounded in a corporate park and there was really nowhere close to eat? You had to really drive into town to find any restaurants, and that was not... More

Have been here before and it was good - and as the reviews say, this is about as close as you can get to Boston and not pay downtown prices. And I was prepared for the fact that the entrance street is about as convoluted as any you'll ever see - use your GPS or Google Earth and be prepared... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights while visiting Boston MA. The front desk staff was extremely helpful with suggestions for restaurants in the area and directions to the T. Breakfast in the morning was excellent with a large selection of both hot and cold choices. It's really a great place to stay near Boston but without paying Boston... More

I arrived late @ night and left before breakfast opened. The staff was extremely helpful and made several breakfast recommendations. The bed was perfect the room was clean and huge... for the Boston area on a Saturday night stay, it was a deal $144.00 plus taxes. (AAA discount included) I will stay again.

Handy location just off I95. Good breakfast but no restaurant. Fortunately 2 hotels located next door so we enjoyed dinner there. Your basic hotel at a reasonable rate and a really good breakfast which is not typical of breakfast included hotels. Good pub across the street

When I walk into a room and literally cannot bringing my luggage through the door because a chair and ottoman are blocking it, I know there is a problem. They are trying to fit too many things into one room -- king size bed, 2 night stands, large fridge and microwave, 2 lamps, desk, dresser AND the chair and ottoman.... More

My husband and I had only one night here. We found the hotel a great value. Friendly, courteous desk clerks and the room was perfect. Breakfast for a chain hotel was comprehensive and all at a reasonable price.
