Motel 6 Boston South - Braintree
Ranked #6 of 7 Hotels in Braintree
Reviewed October 13, 2010

The pluses - very convenient to the T (right next door), clean newly refurbished room, coffee available at office, large flat screen TV, phone, toilet paper, ice, and soap supplied. Bickford's Restaurant next door, and short drive to other fast food (Dunkin Donuts, Tennessee BBQ, Burger King,) grocery store, Chili's Restaurant, and shopping.
The minuses - no carpeting, linoleum floor is slippery if shoes or feet are wet, no continental breakfast but ask for discount card to Bickford's (you'll need it - breakfast is kind of pricey), no lids for coffee, no shampoo or lotion, no hairdryer, no tissues, shallow shelves but no drawers, extra charge for Wi-Fi access.

I totally disagree with the person who said it is an unsafe area. This is NOT a high-crime neighborhood. Your biggest danger here is crossing the major interection to get to the nearby shopping. Be very careful, as it is not a very pedestrian-friendly intersection. But as far as crime, I don't think you have much to worry about. Of course anyone can stay there, so if there were scary looking people they were probably guests. The room was clean and decent. The staff was neither very friendly or unfriendly. It's just a place to get a decent nights sleep for a reasonable price and with great T access to Boston.

Close to train station for visit to Boston. When arrived, old style motel, unlike others in chain. Rather a lot of men hanging around car park, staff put us at the top at the back as better for us. Felt unsafe

Police car in car park, stayed there all night.

Rather vunerable, everyone we spoke too would not stay here. Moved to rock well 5 miles further south. No sleep kept eye on the door. Notice in room not to open door to anyone.

Accour hotels are modernising the rooms but not good for families. Good restaurant nearby.

I like this motel for it's price. I have been returning to this motel for over 15 years. Yes it needs some upkeep, but this is a great area and for the price you can't go wrong. The front was helpful at times but does need a little more training on the ammenities that sourround the hotel. I enjoy my sta every time.

I think this motel deserves a place in Guiness Bool Of Records as the worst place to stay. The manager and the morning lady staff are the unfriendliest I have ever encountered. The front clerk doing the evening shift is a nice guy and very helpful. But the manager and the lady who manages the front desk in the morning are the worst. Nothing works in the motel. TV, AC...............nothing. There is police presence always in the motel and an armed private security guard even during the day. Saw the police come and ask for the guest list from the motel clerk which he promptly handed over. Will never stay in this hotel and would advise people to stay away from this place.

The hotel is what you expect from a Motel 6. There is not much service to mention but all in all it's okay. The rooms are spacious and okay clean. There is enough parking available and the T station (Braintree - red line) is right across the street. Within a 10 minute walk or a 2 minute drive there is a K-Mart, a Walmart and several restaurants including a Dunkin Donuts and a Chili's. I found this is probably the cheapest hotel in the Boston area but don't set your expectations too high.

It was located 5min's walk from the subway (i.e. T). Besides this attribute, it was really basic for the price you are paying. There is no breakfast, no free WiFi ($4/day), and the staff is unhelpful.

The front desk staff agreed on every requests and acted on none! Highly unhelpful too.
