We stayed here for four nights as part of our USA vacation. I wanted to see the historic sites and buildings situated in Concord and Lexington, as well as the famous Walden Pond. We were not disappointed and this hotel was a very convenient home base.
Our room was a good size and the bed comfortable. We were on the second floor that came with a small balcony. Here we could sit in a couple of chairs of an early morning or late afternoon enjoying the good weather and reading a book.
I do have a few small criticisms. I realise that this is a "budget" hotel chain and don't want to seem churlish. In most instances you get what you pay for. It's just that there is some room for improvement regarding breakfast. We stayed in another Best Western hotel in Boston where we had some very ordinary breakfasts. It was no different here. This hotel chain must get all their pastry stock from the one supplier because they were just as bland here as in Boston's Best Western. It wouldn't surprise me if they just put out the same food that was left over from the previous day because the pastries were going stale. Either that or they were poor quality. We stuck to toast and fresh fruit. Once again, the coffee was the same old boring brewed stuff we saw everywhere in the US. I really looked forward to finding somewhere later in the day that sold really good cappuccino and espresso. This whole area is supposed to be a tourist region after all.
One of the best things about this location is its proximity within a very short walking distance of several restaurants. The Italian Pappa razzi was good but a little over-priced. Book ahead or get in real early if you want a table, otherwise you could be in for a long wait. The pleasant surprise was the two adjacent Asian restaurants (Chinese and Japanese). We ate at the Chinese and thoroughly enjoyed it; it wasn't the ubiquitous bland rubbish they offer to Westerners which you may see in Food Courts. And it was very decently priced.
