Honestly, this place is scary. It even had the flickering flourescent lights in the lobby. It's cheap, though, so what do you expect? They take pets, which is why we stayed - we were in an emergency, and had to stop, They were the only place open. The beds were pretty horrible - and there was some dried substance down... More

i had a reservation at this hotel for 6 nights. i stayed one night and checked out early the following morning. They charged my credit card for two nights even though I checked out and let them know I would not be back. They had plenty of notice of the cancelation of my reservation for the following night. When the... More

OMG!!!! horrible place... Dirty carpets, terrible smell. stained mattress. disgusting breakfast. Never never again. Someone living in a room with the door opened... Fesus all over toilet, Everything in Watertown was booked, so had no choice but to stay here, or sleep in the car, which would probably have been better.

I explained i am an employee of Choice and made the reservation on-line over 3 weeks ago. Again the guy said i did not have a reservation and that they do not honor employee discounts on weekends.

Straight to the point. The staff was friendly, continental breakfast was good. Our room smelled of pure Lysol and Bleach, but was still dirty. We found a dirty towel under the sink, there were bugs everywhere. I woke up one morning with a bug crawling between the comforter and sheets. The same type of bug was found in the towels... More

I did not listen to the reviews and decided to stay here anyway for the cheap price and absolutely regret it. The service is the worst. The hotel manager/owner is very deceiving.

We added one additional night to our stay and they held up close to seven hundred dollars with fees and charges. I added one night and the owner assumed that we were... More
