I had stayed at this hotel many years ago and had a very pleasant stay. It has done a major makeover to the Lobby area but the rooms were a bit dated. I found it to be very clean and the beds were comfortable.. The staff were very pleasant and on the weekend they offered a Breakfast Buffet instead of... More

Stayed at hotel for close vicinity to Canobie Lake Park. Hotel seems to have been updated recently with a modern look and feel. Did not have time to use pools or eat breakfast. Front desk person was very friendly. Rooms were small but good enough for sleeping. Air conditioning kept turning of and on which was annoying, but then we... More

This hotel was very clean. The beds were surprisingly very comfortable! We all had a great night's sleep. It is right off the highway and about a 5 minute drive to Canoby Lake Park. There is a Margaritas restaurant on site. The hotel has a buffet breakfast for $10.95 per person. Kids under 12 eat free. There are eggs, bacon,... More

A very good place for family or business traveler. Right off interstate with full breakfast and a very good Mexican restaurant on premise. The price is right and a very friendly staff. Typical rooms with big screen TV. Clean.

First walked in and the lobby is very nice. The girl at the front desk was very friendly, and made me feel welcome. Room was decent, nothing too fancy. Surprised there was no refrigerator, but not really needed for this trip. Walls were a little thin as I could hear people talking and doors closing. Bedding was very comfortable. Very... More

Good location right off the highway. Stayed here a few times; the hotel is undergoing. Our room was large, quiet, and very comfortable. It appeared to have been recently updated. Outdoor and indoor pools reasonable size. This was the first time that there was enough seating around the outdoor pool. The Hot tub was a nice treat.

My sister and I recently stayed two nights at this hotel. We are both in our 60s. I prefer B&Bs; however, we could not book one in this area and opted to stay here. It met my three requirements: clean, quiet & comfortable. All the staff were friendly and professional. There was remodeling taking place during our stay, and it... More

On a recent trip to Portland, Maine, our late evening flight went to Boston instead, due to weather. With no rooms available in Boston, we finally located a room at this location and immediately booked the room directly with a female, who gave us the confirmation number, the address of the hotel, and took our credit card information to secure...

Hello Corey K, I am so shocked and embarrassed to hear of this behavior from a member of my staff! I am so sorry this has happened to you and your family and this is not a normal practice for our hotel. Sometimes a hotel can be overbooked, but typically a member of management will call the guests well before... More

The hotel is on par for the grade....nothing fancy. Rooms were clean, but overall a little dated. The location is very handy to the freeway, which helps if you are traveling through. Disappointed with the breakfast, not good. Not many complaints, except unreliable tv and leaky bathroom fixture. Overall, so-so experience and nothing to rave about.

Close to the interstate. Very clean and comfortable rooms. Excellent power shower. Modern flat screen TV. Easy to access wifi. My room was in the rear of the hotel and very quiet. Friendly staff. Comp coffee near the lobby. Deserving of the Trip Advisor certificate. Accompanying Margarita's Restaurant is very good if you are into the Tex-Mex cuisine. I had... More
