The service was exceptional here by every member of the team. However, Juniata, at the front desk gets the "ROCK STAR AWARD" She went way above and beyond to assist me on some reservation request changes.

Convenient, fair value for Boston.
Room was so hot (January) had to turn on AC
Beds were toooo hard. Very uncomfortable night.

Very good restaurant attached though. Terrific service. Good food packed up to go so I could eat in my room. Tasty.

We decided to go to Natick Mass as a family and spend some time at the mall area. We chose Best Western as they had a pool. My kids really looked forward to swimming. As it turns out we never got to use the pool. Our plan was to arrive on Sat do the mall and sunday hang around the pool before checking out. Well...... the Pool on Sundays does not open until AFTER check out! If I had know this previous I would have chosen a different hotel.
I'm not sure I want to go back to this hotel. Having stayed in many Best Western hotels around the country I was most disappointed with this stay.

We were in Framingham where my son lives for the birth of our grand daughter and wanted to be close without braking the bank. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this hotel/motel. Very clean, great customer service and location. it is attached to the British Brewing Co. restaurant and very close to shopping. I read some reviews that were less than flattering and I would totally disagree with them. The only issue if any was the fitness room was out of comission. I was pretty busy but it wouldn't have hurt to relieve some stress a couple of the days. The breakfast was sufficient and well stocked at all times.

At Best Western, you are always sure to get a good quality and good location. Price performance is always very good if you compare with the local Hotel.

The international reservation service is easily accessible.

We found ourselves at this hotel late last night when we needed to stop due to snow storm. Trusted the positive reviews here and they were accurate in our opinion. Staff was welcoming, rate was fair, room was clean and warm, bed was comfortable. Surprised by the nice continental bfast - make your own pancakes, breakfast sandwiches, yogurt, hot chocolate, etc., certainly better than average. Rating 4 stars because hotel is obviously old and room is worn but not at all creepy or unpleasant. Kudos to the staff who keep things so clean and pleasant.
