“Not impressed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2005

I picked this motel after reading the reviews on this website and I must say that I disagree. Check in was fine. When we entered the corridor to our room we were met with a very dated motel. The inside of the room was in rough shape. There were burn marks and holes in just about everything. The smoke smell in the room was overwhelming. The bed was terrible, it should have been replaced 5 years ago.

The worst part was the bathroom, there was hair all over it and I don't even want to speculate what was all over the door.

We will not stay again. I suggest looking around.

Was looking for a place to stay on the way to Boston and stayed here after reading a review on this form. Like the previous review said, it was simple but good enough for the price. No frills but the kind of place you don't mind staying in when you're on the road. About 60 bucks for the night for the double room.

Motel 6. No frills. Nothing fancy. But it's clean, it's comfortable, the television is fine. The worst thing I can say is the weekend night desk clerk apparently doesn't know how to pronounce my (very common) first name. I wish that was the worst thing I could say about some other places I've been. This hotel is fine.
