“NO FRILLS”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

Clean, no frills, breakfast was coffee in a 4 oz. cup, juice, little debbies pecan rolls and sugar buns, corn flakes and fruit loops. You bring your tray to a little cubbie, put the stuff on it and bring it back to your room. No pool. Bathroom is awful.

This place is the epitome of an average budget motel. It is clean, tidy and no frills. The breakfast is an average coffee and mass-manufactured baked things, which you have to load up and take to your room.

We got a king sized room and it was clean and tidy, but the decor was pretty old. The reception is pretty weird- windowed off like a 24hr gas station. Do they need protection from their customers? Odd. But the guy was friendly and helpful. Air con was good in the room. The location right next to a major road meant some noise at night, but with door and windows closed it wasn't a problem.

Bathroom size was very good compared to many other budget motels.

We would recommend this as an overnight cheap place to stay. No real complaints at all. No pool or anything, so maybe don't bring kids :-)

Very dated, rooms smell musty and bad (the open windows when we arrived should have been a clue). We saw the great reviews and decided to give it a try, but be a warned, the great reviews must have been by employees/friends of the owners. We are really not picky travelers but this place is really below par. The price is low but I guess you get what you pay for.

We normally stay in bed and breakfasts whenever we travel. We were looking for a cheaper alternative in the Sturbridge area. We wouldn’t arrive until after 10:30 PM at night and would leave early in the morning. We checked trip advisor and were intrigued by the Scottish Inn’s reviews and price ($60 a night with AAA discount). We booked it and arrived on a very snowy night. The front clerk was very friendly and check in was quick. We had requested a non-smoking king room. We were pleasantly surprised by how clean the room was. The room was not huge, but it was fully functional. It included a refrigerator, microwave, dining table and 2 chairs. The furniture was solid and attractive (no wiggly drawers made of corkboard). The walls were a lovely light yellow. The bathroom was good sized. It was a chilly night, but the room warmed up quickly when we turned on the heat. The bed was firm and comfy. This is not a luxury establishment, but it is a great place for a night or two. We would definitely stay here again.

Final note: It snowed during our overnight stay. We saw the owners cleaning off all of the snow covered cars in the morning. You won't get that kind of service at a chain hotel!

Room Tip: We had a king size non-smoking room.

This motel was average. Our room was decently clean except for a stain on the mattress which was gross.

For an very low price you get a clean, comfortable place to stay. Simple and straightforward.

Having driven all day, and leaving early the next morning, we simply needed a place to rest for the night, and we were not disappointed. We arrived after dark and left before daylight, but the building exterior appeared to be well maintained. The room was in good shape, and the bed was comfortable. Our bathroom had not been updated (unlike another reviewer) but was clean and provided a good shower.

The restaurant next door apparently is quite good, but closed at 7:00 p.m. (before we arrived.) There are several other choices nearby, and the clerk was very helpful with a recommendation.

The location was convenient to the Mass turnpike. This is a budget motel, so expect thin towels and no frills. But you can't beat the value.

My family and I stayed one night. Room was clean and tidy. Bathroom was in working order and clean. The Hosts were great and friendly. It even had a small fridge, which I find lacking in most hotel rooms.

Huge plus - A small restaurant with EARLY hours and great food/service is on the same lot. This saved us time searching for a place to eat.

Only negative thing, the Continental breakfast is very small. I suggest going to the restaurant.

Definitely recommend this hotel.
