Look and Feel - It's a Courtyard - nothing too fancy - not like a hipster hotel in the City - the decor is pretty modern but a few years dated, overall the place is kept nice and clean.
Fitness Area - open 24hrs; decent equipment
Pool / Hot Tub Area - open until 11, Hot tub is nice and warm - probably about 102 degrees; pool too small for swimming laps, but does have a handicapped accessible lift
Rooms - Clean, mini-fridge shower has hot water. The toilet in my room didn't flush well at first, but I contacted maintenance and they fixed it up in short order.
Bistro / Eats - not bad, Starbucks coffee, they have beer and other alcoholic beverages, sandwiches and nice little meals - nothing fancy, but solid.
Parking - decent, not a ton of it - but better than a lot of Boston.
Staff - friendly and accommodating.
Overall - it's nice that it is near the 95 and 90 freeways, so you can get places quickly. You are about 20 mins from Boston proper and there are places to eat and shop in the area. If you are a family looking for a decent place to stay at a reasonable rate outside of the city, this isn't a bad choice - and if you are a business traveler and have to go to Forefront Center for Meetings & Conferences, this place is just down the block. It's clean, decent food onsite, hot water in the shower and hot tub (a surprising rarity now-a-days - I have stayed at places for twice the price with cold showers). It's not going to blow your mind with uniqueness, but they deliver solidly.
