We booked this hotel because we were planning a family trip to Old Sturbridge Village. The amenities for the kids looked like fun and since its summer we knew we'd use them.
After I booked the hotel I searched the reviews (yes I know you're supposed to do this beforehand) and got a little scared. The reviews looked horrible and I was contemplating canceling my reservation. Fortunately I decided to give it a try and hope for the best.
It turned out to be a nice place! The room itself was newly updated and in great shape (room 330). The hallways outside the rooms definitely looked a little rough around the edges in some spots but overall not too bad. Our bed was comfortable, the kids slept great, it was quiet, and we thoroughly enjoyed the lake beach. The property was beautiful with the lake and green grass/trees. Make sure you wear your flip flops outside though because there's a lot of geese and they make a mess on the lawn (if you know what I mean).
The hotel staff was great. We forgot our crib for our youngest and they brought one up right away and didn't even charge us the extra for it.
We checked out the indoor pool and its a beautiful area that is very open and well decorated however, they don't heat the pool (I'm guessing they don't heat it in the summer). We were glad we checked before getting our suits on going there! Instead we went to the beach on the lake which had nice warm water.
All in all I'd highly recommend it, especially for a family stay!
Hope this helps.
