“Average hotel with convenient location”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Conveniently located off I 93, one exit north of I 495, the hotel is convenient to both Boston and its northern suburbs. It is apparently regular used by groups as evidenced by a large number of Chinese teenagers and a girls' softball team. A Chili's and a Chateau Italian Restaurant are adjacent.

Having stayed at too many midrange hotels to count, I would rate it average. Rooms are clean, relatively large, have small refrigerators, a recliner, and a desk with built-in power outlets ( a definite plus). The noise level was low, and the breakfast was fine. The hotel looked a bit tired and the indoor pool was closed without explanation.

Room Tip: pick a room on the back of the hotel

Nice big rooms. Great breakfast. Pool wasn't working that one night but we didn't care. Room was bin smoking but smelled of smoke. That was the only problem. A tad expensive but comparable for the area. Good clean. No druggies, smells or anything bad like one other review suggested.

I've stayed at a number of LaQuintas, and even joined the rewards program. Up and down the eastern seaboard, and even in the middle of Arkansas, I've been happy with them. That's why this surprised me. I stay at LQ because it's clean and modern. At least it was clean.

We walked in to find the hotel hot and muggy, feeling almost exactly like the outside. Elevator was the same. Room was the same. The A/C unit was very old, and sounded like a jet engine. Had to wake up once in the middle of the night to switch it off... and later again to switch it on... and had to take a sleeping pill to get to sleep, despite my exhaustion, because of the noise.

We walked in and the person at the front desk told us that the pool was closed that day. When we came back later, it was to see people coming out of the pool, wrapped in towels, heading back to their room. When we asked the new person at the desk about it, he was more interested in cracking jokes. When we asked him about vending machines, more jokes. I decided to just wander the halls to find them instead. Finally found them. They were very old, and looked like the food had been sitting there for a long while. I'm going to go out on a limb and just assume that the beds were clean. So disappointed.

If you're looking to stay near Boston, pay the extra money and stay at the Somerville location. It's much, much better. I'll be staying at that one, exclusively, from now on.

Stayed here for a lacrosse tournament. Dirty. Smelly. Noisy. Really sketchy clientele. If you like bikers and druggie, you will feel right at home. If not, you would be better off sleeping in your car. Or maybe getting yourself arrested and spending the night in jail. The accommodations would be better, and the crowd would be nicer.

We may never stay in a La Quinta again. It was THAT bad.

My husband, daughter and I stayed here during a last minute family visit and were pleased with the hotel, staff and value. We upgraded to a suite so our daughter could get a good night's rest if we stayed up. The suite price was less than nearby hotels' standard rooms! The breakfast was ample, pool clean, and maid service prompt. The Chili's next door, while convenient, has horrible service (obviously not a reflection of the hotel). The only minor comment I have is the coffee at breakfast was very weak, but with so many Dunkin' Donuts and Starbucks nearby, that would not prevent me from returning. Thanks, La Quinta. Great value and a comfortable stay!

Room Tip: We were the first room off the lobby and there was some noise from other guests. However, we live i...
