“Almost perfect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

If you are looking for a comfortable room for one or two nights, this is it. We have stayed in the regular rooms and the semisuites. Both are clean and well maintained. This facility is on a par with Courtyard by Marriott and Holiday Inn Express. If you are expecting an old New England Inn, stay at the original Carriage House just down the road.

Room Tip: Choose the third floor for quiet.

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and it was a very nice and comfortable experience. We got married at the Wayside Inn two years ago and last year we stayed right at the inn to celebrate our first anniversary. That was very nice but the inn gets pretty noisy with all the functions they have downstairs so we decided that we would try the Carriage House this year instead and that was a great idea.

The hotel was recently renovated but it has a look and feel that match the Wayside Inn well while offering some of the more modern conveniences. The lobby is very nice with a fireplace and large screen TV. The kin sized bed in the room was very comfortable and the bathroom was huge. They even offered free wifi.

We had dinner and breakfast at the Wayside Inn and it is about a one minute drive away, right down Route 20 on the same side so it couldn't be easier.

This is a great option if you are looking for the old fashioned charm of the Wayside Inn with some more modern amenities.

This is a great place to get away for the weekend...especially with the beautiful autumn weather. The location is perfect...really close to the Old Grist Mill, the Wayside Inn, and other beautiful attractions. This hotel is super clean and updated. The personnel at the desk were tops in my book! The ONLY negative thing we experienced was the noise level. You could hear people in the hallways as if they were in your room and by being on the 2nd floor, the people above us sounded like they were running relays in their room. Other than that, everything was GREAT.

Room Tip: Choose a 3rd floor room. There are only 2 floors with rooms on it (2nd and 3rd) so choose a 3rd flo...

We were in Sudbury to visit family. The Wayside Carriage House has rooms that are very stylishly appointed and quite comfortable, including a sofa (so much more comfy to view tv than sitting on the bed!). A stay there gives you access to the sister property, Longfellows Wayside Inn. We did not take advantage since it was pouring the next morning and we had a long drive. We'd definitely stay there again.

My very first chose in Sudbury was longfellows wayside inn which is great for breakfast and just ok
For dinner.but longfellows wayside inn only has about 10 or 11 rooms to sleep in , so if you call and they are booked they will suggest their sister motel the wayside carriage house inn. It isn't what you would expect from the name but just a very ordinary motel which is in anywhere USA.
The rooms are very basic , but comfortable. The location is slightly depressing as it is directly across the street from a rest home for the elderly. It is located on a very noisey and busy street
( believe it to be Rte 20 or Boston Post Rd) . The front desk does a very good job to see that you are well taken care of.but knowing what I know now it wouldn't be my first or second chose in Sudbury.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for a room facing the back, the rooms facing the front are very noisey and you can he...

Pillows like a rock and sheets like sandpaper.
street noise annoyingly loud accompanied by whining AC units both indoor and out, thin walls and creaky floors.
good place to stay if you don't want to sleep

I think you should consider this "hotel" an annex of extra rooms to the Wayside Inn. They use it for weddings (in our case) and other events that happen at the Wayside Inn.
My wife called it the twilight zone because nothing is exactly as represented. The workers are very nice and want to help and often times, don't know how to help. My wife asked for a wine-bottle opener. The front desk clerk couldn't find it. Then I went down and asked. Again, she couldn't find it. I suggested that it might be in the closet where they keep the bar utensils. She opened it up and, voila, found the wine opener.
I should have prefaced that with the discovery that the website and in-room documentation says they have a bar, "inquire at the front desk for hours". We arrived on Thursday night and - I inquired. The front desk clerk said the bar was open on Friday and Saturday - which it was.
They have a spa on-site which excited my wife as we prepared for the trip. We found the door. We knocked. There was no answer. The front desk clerk told us the spa is really next door and they use the locked rooms for hair and make-up when brides are preparing for weddings at the chapel next to the Wayside Inn. The hotel is nice. It is kind of a small scale Residence Inn. The sound-proofing between the rooms isn't as good as a Residence Inn. Several in our party failed to get their room cleaned on at least one day out of 3 or 4. We received 6 extra towels delivered to our room
We didn't ask for them -
but another room did and only later received the towels.
This is an odd place that is convenient to the Wayside Inn. There is no restaurant and the breakfast is sparse (think minimal Hampton Inn).
If I returned, I would probably find a real hotel in a close small town and stay there. Nice people and nice attitude but they aren't really trying to provide top quality services.

Room Tip: 3rd/top floor avoids some noise from other rooms.
