Low price, room clean, I liked my 2 nights at this motel. The room was quiet, but the air conditioning was a bit noisy. Although the scenery of the room's window was horrible, I recommend this hotel for people who want a decent room at low price near Boston.

We stayed 4 nights in this motel and have no major complaints, but "the Ritz" it ain't. Cleanliness of the room was just adequate, and it lacked some features we would have liked, such as a fan in the bathroom. On the positive side, the room was quiet. We chose this motel based primarily on price, and didn't expect too much.

This is a small, independent motel, and the service was fantastic. Everyone was very nice, and they had coffee and pastries for breakfast! The room was large and clean, and even had a fridge and microwave. This was the most affordable place to stay in the area, and I was not disappointed. I would definitely stay with them again.

I was in Boston during graduation week with family and friends and we needed three rooms for five days to travel in/around Boston. This was the most affordable place in the Boston area - even if it meant renting a car and driving 30 minutes from Bedford into the city and back. The hosts are a very helpful couple and made my family feel welcome with simple things like making sure we all had adjacent rooms etc.

The rooms and facilities are clean and well maintained. The motel is in a quiet and very safe neighborhood. Breakfast is basic: coffee + pastries. Bedford is a nice town but primarily residential, i.e. no super convenient access to stores, restaurants etc. Also, driving is your best option to get to the city. Public transport is super minimal and taxis from here to get anywhere are expensive. So plan ahead for all those minor inconveniences, especially if you are traveling with children.

Would definitely recommend this place if you want to avoid a big dent in your pocket due to super expensive hotels in Boston/Cambridge.

We booked this hotel trough travelocity because there were good quotes and the price was reasonable for the Boston area. However our experience was less good and my wife spoke to the manager who promised that the things will change. Lets mention the positive aspects first.

The motel is quiet no noise from the street.

On the second day the sheets were changed.

Now to our criticisms

The place is run down. The window goes to the back of the building is the garbage dump of the motel and the neighbouring restaurant.

The shower was dirty and had mould. The entire bathroom needs to be redone. The room is smelly however we were able to sleep with open windows and it was not too hot.

I have traveled in and around Boston a good bit in the last couple years and the Bedford Motel is at a price point that I could afford. Though I had limited expectations of the motel because of the price, my opinion quickly changed once I was checked in. Not only was the staff exceedingly friendly and helpful, but the room was perfectly comfortable and the area was quiet.

GIven a choice between small independently owned motels like this and the franchise options, I'll take the Bedford Motel and places like it every time. It is one more opportunity to "just say no" to corporate greed and the sterility of their offerings.
