“Kids week is so much fun & a great deal!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2010

We have stayed at the Sturbridge Host Hotel a few times. The kids week is alot of fun! The rooms are always very clean as well as the entire hotel. During the day the chef comes out and makes cookies with the kids.They also have arts& crafts.My boys like the arcade games, too. The indoor pool is great especially if it rains. We enjoy using the paddle boats in the lake.
We have always had a positive experience with Gina at the front desk..she's great! Check-in/check-out is always quick and smooth. She definately gets things done and is always happy to help!
The restauraunts have great food and the breakfast is amazing...so much to choose from. We will headed back tomorrow for a few days for this weeks kids week!
If you have never been...check it out!

Thank you for your kind words. We are delighted that you had so much fun on Kid's Week. We had fun too! We hope you'll come back during the summer. The area has many attractions to visit and the hotel has many outside activities; paddleboats, horseshoes, beach volleyball, live bands on the beach every Friday and Saturday night and much more. We look forward to serving you again in the near future.

Found the hotel in AAA guide while driving from one bike ride towards another. Called spoke with Gina, front office supervisor, she had a room and place to eat. Gina gave us a fantastic rate for a suite. Our rooms over looked the lake with balcony access from both. She made sure the restaurant new we were coming to eat. She really went out of her way to ensure we had a great experience during our stay. I would not hesitate to return to the hotel. Gina is a real asset to this business.

This hotel needs a major overhaul. It has a nice setting overlooking a lake, but the rooms are run down. There is peeling wallpaper, water stains on the ceiling, and scuffs and knicks everywhere. The place smells musty and the carpets and linen feel damp. There is an indoor pool and the heavily chlorinated smell pervades the place. Not worth the money or the allergy-inducing stay.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your recent stay at the Sturbridge Host Hotel. We are currently in the process of completing "touch up" work in some of the rooms and hallways. We apologize for the "look" of some areas. I hope you will give us a chance to improve ourselves. Though some of the areas are receiving updates of paint and repair, some areas are quite nice. Request a lake view room the next visit and I think you would have a different outlook. Thank you again for your time and comments.

We stayed here last night hoping for a romantic getaway. I wouldn't choose this place again. The facility is tired, with chips and scuffs everywhere in our room. It the hall there was actually a ducktaped wire running along the baseboard, and then ducktaped across the carpet to the other side, and by the look of it.. it was permanent. Not professional, and this is supposed to be a 3 star hotel. The rugs, throughout are warn and need replacement as well.

The biggest dissapointment is we arrived at 7, went out to dinner and wanted a swim in the indoor pool when we returned. The pool closed at 9PM!!! and was alarmed. It doesn't reopen until 10AM!! What kind of hours are those for a 'resort'. It was very sad, and we didn't get to use it because of that.

We will not be back.

We apologize for the "look" of some areas. The pool however we could have opened for you. I wish you had let us know that night and we could have allowed you to swim. I'm sorry. And thank you for your feedback as it allows us to better focus on areas for improvement.

We turned away from the Sturbridge Heritage and Scottish Motel and were wondering where we could stay in the area. We ran into the Sturbridge Host Hotel and thought it would be a lot more expensive than it was. Although it is listed at $189 on TripAdvisor, we got a room with 2 double beds for our family of 4 for $99. Woman at front desk was friendly, the room is clean and roomy and the place has charm.
