Reviewed March 4, 2013

I just want to tell everyone how wonderful the The Red Maple Inn is and Malida is just awesome. We recently stayed for one night this past February, 2013 and she went above and beyond for us and her breakfast is just awesome. I strongely suggest if you are looking for a nice little getaway this is the place to go. Malida makes you feel like family.

What a wonderful review, thank you! And thank you for singling out our Innkeeper, Melida, for special praise. When John and I are away we always know the Inn, and our guests, are in good hands!

most friendly innkeeper merlina is the best host and cook.Treated me like royalty! Beds are soft and comfortable beautifully decorated. Breakfast was served on high quality china and was outstanding.
It was a great quiet place for the solitude I was seeking.

Escape from NYC led us to the Red Maple Inn for the weekend. The hosts are accommodating - we got in pretty late and they left us our key with thorough instructions by the check in bar. Place is fine overall - nothing to rave about, but nothing terrible either. it's pretty average, I'd say. I'd give it three stars, except, I do agree - the breakfast was delicious. We didn't have dinner here, do we can't speak for that. Now for some pros and cons:

The breakfast is grand and delicious. The host are very welcoming and nice. We enjoyed their company.

As we stayed in the duck room, there were lots of duck decor. It is pretty.

The walls are paper thin. The weekend that I was there, there was a family vacation in process and at least three rooms were occupied the group. They were pretty loud and we heard everything. We slept in the Duck Room which is towards the street and we also heard all major trucks/trailors. They do have the individually wrapped ear plugs, but we didn't use them.

As advertised, they do have a 1000+ DVD collection, but most movies are from the 90's and before. As a 80's baby, I didn't recognize too much of them. The television in the room is also super small - smaller than most computer monitors. It has to be below 20" - it's the TV's that most mom's had in the kitchen, again, in the 90's. We had few laughs over the boasted DVD collection and the itty bitty TV that seemed just miniscule from our vantage point on the bed.

The room doesn't have slippers as i forgot to take slippers and ended up walking around in socks. That would've been appreciated. They do have bath robes though.

The area is perfect for an escape to do absolutely nothing. There are few good restaurants that we took advantage of, but there isn't much to do in the area. We asked the coffee shop lady and she pretty much said there is a town with a big mall with a yankee candle. The cool site was the abbey nearby with delicious jam. There is also a pretty big walmart about 15 minutes of it.

Room Tip: We stayed in the duck room and we heard the street pretty clearly. Maybe avoid that?

We spent a night while visiting our son at a near-by college. We were impressed by the sheer number of furnishings and artifacts that decorated every space in the inn. But don't let the decorations put you off. The room was comfortable and clean. The breakfast was delicious. No complaints at all.

I don't know how anyone could give this upscale resteraunt and upscale inn a bad review. Just ask and it is there. For example we tapped timidly late on the door for plates for pizza and were given Fine China! Hands Down THE BEST PLACE I EVER STAYED!

Far superior than the best of the best. Just ask and you get a second helping of a salad worth more than $20 itself. Food was so inexpensive for the quality On a scale of 0-5 an outstanding 9.

Room Tip: Any room you can get is great. I personally prefer the second floor.

It was a last minute trip to the Brimfield fair. Innkeepers were wonderful and accommodating. Our room, the Rose room, was beautiful. Very clean. Easy to find. Breakfast was excellent and staff was attentive. We would definitely come back.

my boyfriend and i really needed to get out of the city for a few days and so he booked us for the inn for a few days. he surprised me though because when we got there, i realized we were staying at the cottage! it is super cute, clean, comfy and just all around beautiful. we had an awesome stay and really enjoyed the staff. i hope to return to the inn one day because we had such an awesome stay.

Room Tip: stay at the cottage! it was worth it.
