I had to cancel at the last moment and their customer service representative was so kind to me; he understood my situation and allowed me to cancel free of charge. I intend to stay here in the near future.

Mice scurrying around all night, stains on carpet/bedding, door was extremely difficult to close, bathroom was moldy and gross. All told a charming little spot in the middle of nowhere. Check it out if you hate yourself.

Stayed here for 1 night 2 adults and 2 small children since we could not find any other "affordable" place with short notice around Boston. And still it was expensive. We could not afford to find a new hotel once we saw the place but if we could have we would have done that immediately. Changed the room we were...

I've stayed there and it is NOT good. Please DO NOT waste you HARD EARNED money in this dump. Let me tell you of my experience: There a LOTS of mice running around this motel. Mice can be found in your luggage, food, and they eat everything you bring into your room. There are numerous traps all around the room...

No hello or a small smile when we got our key! "And you don't have any housekeeper, if you need towels or something you can get it here at the desk!" WHAT!!! Isn't it a hotel! When we went to our room we found out that all the kitchen elements were gone! No pan, no kettle, no cutlery, no glass!...

Stayed for 3 nights and for the price was very good. Clean bathroom, nice white sheets and spacious room. Yes, OK, the room and hotel were tired but there is a refurb in process and for the price, in and around Boston, you can't argue. No breakfast but IHOP next door and MacDonalds and also an excellent restaurant, the Stockyard,...

Stopped in before a very early flight out of Boston, best price around but the room was a bit dingy. The staff were helpful, efficient, and friendly. The room appeared clean except for dust bunnies on the floor behind the nightstand which was pushed out a bit.

We came for the Boston Marathon and found the location quite a walking distance from the route, but it was not an issue whatsoever because we called Uber and a ride in less than 5 minutes. The room was average, but clean and had everything we needed. Customer service at the hotel was excellent. We enjoyed our stay. We'll be...

We only needed one night so this was a pretty decent spot. The room itself was great if not a little cramped. It was an odd corner room with one queen bed but wasn't too much of a inconvenience. What was an inconvenience was the fact that there wasn't an elevator and no breakfast of any sort (they did have...
