Had to come in to Westminster for a funeral. Reviewed virtual tour and thought the Boston Inn looked like a nice place to stay. Let me tell you in what ways it was NOT the place to stay-
-Room was not the one showed on the virtual tour. Where was that room?
-Room smelled terrible, had a musty basement smell. Carpets stained. Had to immediately go buy Lysol and Frebreeze from local store. Walls were dirty, bathroom door had a hole punched in it. Everything was outdated furniture, dirty carpet (afraid to walk around without shoes) and bathroom.
-My husband complained about the smell and was told to let them know about it by 11am the next day.
-Some of the electrical sockets did not work.
-Hot water handle in sink was broken.
-Fridge did not keep items cold.
-The first day my family was getting showered and ready for the viewing when the maid came. Explained we were getting ready. Later my husband went to ask for a trash bag and was told my the lady at the front desk "I can only give you one, next time let the maid in."
-No iron or ironing board in room. Was told by the maid only 'certain rooms' carry those, Had to go to the front desk and was given a small ironing board. (Good thing I brought my iron from home).
-There was different sections of this motel. I do not know where the rooms were that was shown on the website, maybe in a different section. Maybe because my family was from out of state that it would not matter where we would stay.
-This was a very sad and stressful time for our family. This stay made it worse. We ended up checking out 2 days early.
-This motel made you feel disgusting and dirty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11
Take my advice and spend the extra money and stay at an alternative motel. I will never stay or recommend anyone ever stay.
-If I had more time I would have taken pictures to show with this review but was just glad to leave.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built in the 1960's as lee's motel the hotel was the only hotel in the area. Starting out as only 20 rooms we have grown over the years to a 118 room property with a large outdoor swimming pool. The hotel was bought in 1992 and the name was changed to the Boston Inn. Many changes have been made through out the years to keep up with the modern times but the property still keeps its older "traditional" mom and pop Inn feel. We recently added LCD HD T.V's to all our rooms as well as a Dell desktop computer and free wireless internet through out the property.Very convenient to McDaniel College, Carroll County Farm Museum, Carroll County Ag Center, and Union Mills Homestead. We are about 30 minutes from Owings Mills, Reisterstown, and Frederick, and about 45 minutes from Baltimore, and Gettysburg. ... more less
