Nice location, but it is just a old hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful, but rooms just need an update. Plenty of parking and close to Boston. It really needs a make over to really get back to attracting a bigger clientele.

Let me start by saying I was shocked by the room we stayed in and would have left if I could have found any other hotel with a vacancy. It looked like something out of a 1970's home. The mattress had springs that dug into our backs and the pillows were old and lumpy. Both were in need of serious...

Live, LOUD music from bar beneath our rooms till midnight. Very shabby rooms. The night staff were a little sympathetic to my complaint and said they would ask band to lower the bass, which I don't believe happened! Is this a hotel or NIGHTCLUBS? Would not recommend this place to my worst enemy.

I booked 2 hotel rooms with Expedia that were king rooms. We checked in and my daughter went to her room and called me while I was finishing the paperwork and said the rooms were not king but rooms with 1 dbl bed and that they were gross. When I went up to my room the door was open with...

Stayed for 2 nights while visiting friends. Room was on the 2nd floor with a beautiful lake view. The room hadn't been remodeled yet and showed some signs of age. The door needed a bit of force to completely shut and latch. The furniture and tv were old and the carpet had some stains/wear. Bed was nice and comfortable and...

We had our 50th class reunion there last night and it was fantastic. The food and the service was second to none. It was without a doubt one of the best buffet meals I have ever had at a function. I also spoke to several people who had rooms there and they said they were fine. Do not believe the...
