My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and we were pretty disappointed. The pool looked more like a mosquito breeding place- it was full of bugs. Then the exercise room contained 4 machines- 2 treadmills, a bike, and a step machine. When my husband started jogging on the treadmill, I told him he'd better stop before the whole hotel collapses- that's how old and junky the machines were.
The exterior of the hotel looks beautiful, but you shouldn't be fooled by that or the appearance of the lobby. The room was pretty crowded because it was a suite. The paint was peeling in several places on the ceiling. The wallpaper needed some touch-ups, especially in the bathroom.
There are a few good things about the hotel though. It was a very close drive to downtown Boston (that is if you don't get lost along the way). I paid a decent price- $119 a night. Most hotels near Boston were a lot more. It was recently acquired by Hyatt, so if you stay there for a night and join Hyatt Gold Passport (it's free), you get a free night stay at any Amerisuites. Even though it's Hyatt, the service is not like Hyatt service. When I couldn't figure out how to use the free wi-fi with my laptop, the guy at the front desk was going to come up to our room to set it up for me. The number that they gave me for wi-fi service was disconnected.
I would recommend the hotel only for its location. Otherwise, I'd say: STAY AWAY!
