4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

The bed was really comfortable. Much nicer inside than it looks from the outside and than expected. Breakfast was ok but not much choice and lacking in fresh ingredients. The bar downstairs was good value and the band playing on the Saturday was great. Couldn't hear it at all from the room on the 1st floor so no need to... More

I have stayed here on several occasions while travelling for work. The staff is friendly. The rooms and the hotel is in desperate need of upgrading. The whole hotel has a retirement-home smell. The food at the bar is decent. The location is not the best for getting in to Boston. Better get an Uber.

I have stayed at the hotel 3-4 times over the past year. It was described as just completing renovations but on one stay there was damage to the wall. One room lacked a telephone and alarm clock. I did report this at 3 AM the first night of my last stay. I was told it at least a phone would... More

Boston is an expensive city so this is not a fancy hotel because it's cheaper and on the suburbs. With that said, the hotel has a great lake view, clean bed and bathroom, which is what you normally look for when you are paying less than the average. Good internet speed.

The hotel at first view seemed to be an office building with a temporary sign tacked out over the door. Staff unfriendly, we had two rooms one on the first floor seemed like it had been recently redone, but bathrom had grimy grouting, black mold, ceiling over tub peeling off like the one upstairs had leaked down, and bugs. One... More

Family run motel by a daughter Catherine aka Cat who could care less. Very rude, abrasive and condescending. Location would be ideal for a decent hotel who cares about appearance, customer and quality. Look for smiles on the workers faces...there are none. Look for smiles on the faces of those who stay here... there are none. That tells all.

Broken bed springs to cigarette smoke billowing up from the lobby door. The room is the worst in the area for hotels. Its the bottom of a pretty big barrel! You can do a lot better if you just look a little harder. I stayed here for 2 weeks on assignment for work...I think my work hates me because this... More

The location is convenient, breakfast was good and the staff helpful but the facility was undergoing renovations while we were there. The Tavern was closed as was the pool and we couldn't get to the fitness center. Our room was a good size and the beds were firm but the glaze on tub was peeling off and the smoke detector... More
