First I would like to say in general the hotel is a very good deal for the Boston area . We were able to book our room on New Years Eve for well under $100 ($63 on the hotel website) The hotel is situated about 4 miles from the Oak Grove Station on the Orange Line. A pretty easy and in-expensive way to access the city.
The hotel is right off of I-93 but it is in a slightly odd location. I would hardly call it inconvenient as mentioned in a couple of the reviews. You won’t see the actual hotel property as you come off the exit; however the access road is directly in front of you. Just look for the signs.
The hotel access road is situated directly next to a McDonalds. Just don't look at the vacant lot in between the hotel & McDonalds - it is where McDonald's garbage seems to go to die. Not much the hotel can do about it I suppose, but not the sort of thing that you want to see heading up for a night's stay.
With that said. The actual hotel grounds are quite clean and well lit. Safety is not an issue and parking is plentiful.
The reception area is clean and attractive. The rooms appear to be on the larger side. Ours had two queen beds a microwave, refrigerator, and was well apportioned. The linens were fresh and in good shape and the bed relatively comfortable (although on the firm side). Carpets in the room were starting to show some wear but were well within acceptable tolerances.
There is an ample breakfast area with a small selection of pastries, fruit, cereal, and a small waffle maker. Make sure to watch the clock in the morning - at 10AM the food can and will disappear. Being New Years day we were a little slow on the uptake and the hotel staff had started cleaning up just as we came down for breakfast. Check-out is 11AM so there is plenty of time for the slow-risers out there to get up and get going.
The only thing marring our stay was a nasty little fire alarm at 3AM. According to the front desk some folks in one of the smoking rooms on the second floor set it off accidentally. Not quite sure what they were smoking, but I can tell you with absolute certainty, the alarms work and work well. Not the sort of thing you want to wake up to after a night on the town.
We would certainly stay at this hotel again - even with the "special wake-up call". One of the better values in Boston.
