We were going to a concert in Tanglewood and wanted to stay closer to Boston so our morning drive would be shorter before work. I was nervous upon making this reservation because the reviews were mixed. Especially because most of the positive reviews are written by people who have only written one review, and that strikes me as illegitimate. I called (the answering service) to make a reservation and Kevin called me back. I made the reservation the day of. I tried to call back to cancel and I couldn't get ahold of anyone. So, we arrived at the hotel to check in during the allotted time (4-7pm) and no one was there! I called (the answering service) and so one returned my call! We couldn't check in. We waited around the town for about an hour and didn't hear back. I am not the very nervous type, but I did cancel my credit card this morning in fear that this operation is even sketchier than it seems.
Just a weird and unpleasant experience overall. I can't even imagine what the rooms would look like judging by what we could see just from looking in the windows. We ended up Hotwireing a 2star motel a few towns away and it was just fine!
