For me this is the best in New England. It is not the fanciest or the most modern, but it has everything I want and is pleasant, clean and comfortable and relaxing. You can get anywhere from here. For value nothing comes close. If you are looking for glitz and glamour and cutting edge this may not work, but if... More

We have not stayed in the Inn, just eaten in the Pub and in the Main Dining Room. We prefer the main dining room, which features a wonderful old fire place, which is well-used in the colder months. We go there often, and usually have two-for one coupons (good for Monday-Weds) from the local Yankee Shopper free newspaper. With or... More

Stayed at the historic inn. No refrigerators and no ice machines, Must grab your ice bucket and trudge down to the front desk where a staff member will disappear into the kitchen to fill it. Tiny room. Air conditioner built into the wall was filthy and extremely loud even at the lowest setting. It was a warm day and the... More

Excellent location, large rooms, very clean, super friendly and helpful. There is a bit of sound from the highway so if you need silence when you sleep, this isn't the place. However it's not much noise and we all slept very comfortably. Beds were big and comfortable and they had fun soaps and shampoos, not the industrial type. Reception staff... More

This is our second stay at the Publick House. This time we stayed in the "newer" Chamberlain House, which has suites, which I would recommend. We had 2 large rooms - one with a king-size bed, and 1 serving as a "living room". Both had a large screen TVs and a door separating the rooms for more privacy when watching... More

This was our second visit to the Publick House, each visit many years apart. We were housed this time in one of the modern motel units. You want to stay in the main house. We were on a road trip and wanted to stay in a place where we could also get a good dinner. My dinner was fine, an... More

Terrific hotel/venue for weddings...only! Everything you need is right here...without having to leave the premises. Not much to do outside of the hotel...unless you're interested in an expensive ($28/pp) visit to a simulation of a yesteryear village (Sturbridge Village). The pub & food here is terrific...service is very good...! Motorcourt Hotel buildings are tired and in need of renovation. Definitely... More

We were on a cross country trip and booked this hotel in advance, not knowing what a unique property we found. We were very lucky that we ended up with rooms in the actual Inn. The Inn is rich in history, and is very well maintained. We loved the downstairs Pub for both the service and the atmosphere. The rooms,... More

We love this hotel. We've been staying here on our way to Maine for about 10 years. The staff are all very friendly and extremely helpful. The hotel has always been clean, and comfortable. The coffee & pastries excellent and the women behind the counter are fun.

My husband and I recently stayed here while visiting family in the area. For a historic inn, it delivers as promised. Loved the sloping floors and narrow door ways - my inner history nerd was overwhelmed! The room was comfortable with antique-style furniture/ Our room was clean and the bed was AMAZING! We had two bathrooms in our suite and... More
