If you are looking for an inexpensive place to stay near Concord Mass and all its history, the Bedford Inn may work for you. The owners/front desk people were very nice and helpful. The rooms are clean and basic - they do not appear to have been updated recently, but were clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom still has the original 50s tile on the walls, but the appliances are updated. The shower is a single stall, and the water pressure was awful, though. The are no amenities offered - although there was a coffee machine in the office in the morning. We left a charger in the room and had to return several hours later to retrieve it, and the staff were kind and had put it aside for us, which was really nice.

Who knew a motel could be so good? Bedford Motel has a nice decor and my room included a desk, easy chair and coffee table.The microwave and refrigerator are a great plus. Sheets and towels are better than those in 2.5 star hotels I've stayed at. People are the front desk are very friendly. Altogether a most enjoyable experience.

This place is clean, quiet, safe and convenient. The best thing about it is the price. True, you don’t get shoe buffers, mints on your pillow, or bell hop or a mini bar in the rooms, but since an independent traveler doesn’t need them, you won’t end up paying for these needless amenities either.

The staff is friendly. The facility has been getting updated over the past few years, but the retro charm still remains.

If you want a good, simple value, this is you place! If you need to waist money in a need to stroke your vanity and ego, go elsewhere.

If your expecting a 4 star hotel, this is not the place to go. It is quite dated...reminded me of the places I stayed as a kid when we did a cross-country trip in the 60's! It is very clean, and has been updated with cable TV, WiFi, refrigerator and a microwave. There was plenty of room, and the AC worked fine. The owners are friendly and pleasant, and though Bedford is a little ways off 95, it's not far from some of the outlying attractions (Lexington, Concord, etc). We were dropping my daughter off at Brandeis Univ in Waltham, and the price was very reasonable, and the motel was about 15 minutes to campus. This is the 3rd time I've stayed here, and it has always been just fine. Now the Wifi is readily accessible in the room, where on previous visits I had to go to the lobby to get on line.

This is a basic motel, but it meets your basic needs well. I'd definitely stay here again

My Boyfriend and I spent a week at the Bedford Motel while coming to the area to see my cousin graduate from Harvard. My Grandparents had booked in at a bigger hotel in Waltham, and we spoke so highly of the Bedford Motel that we had them come stay t our hotel on there last night! Its a cute little retro motel. Very clean, comfortable beds and a fridge and microwave in the room! We stayed on the back section of the hotel and had a lovely view of a wooded area out back and lots of birds an chipmunks outside the window. The people who run the hotel are very nice and very helpful! The location was really ideal about 15 min drive from Cambridge, 20 from Boston. There are a couple of supermarkets on the same road as the hotel, whole foods is a short walk up the street. there's a liquor store right out front and a fantastic ice cream place next door! Also a lovely bakery cafe up the street as well. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and I have told anyone i know who visits boston that this is the place to come!

Room Tip: Rooms along the back row have a nice woodland view!
