The room was clean. Very budget. Stained furniture. Proximity to Lexington very good. Whole Foods nearby. Concerned about flimsy door to room and cheap deadbolt. Owners polite.
With some TLC, this motel would be a great!

About 2 days before I was to leave for a training in Burlington I discovered that my company did not book me a hotel, it was my fault as I wrongfully assumed that they would. So onto the internet I went and came across this motel.

At first I was a bit skeptical because I didn't want to stay in a motel, but they were the only one that could take a reservation on such short notice. So I booked a reservation for a week. July 6th-10th 2015

I arrived Monday afternoon and was greeted kindly by the front desk. Upon entering my room (double full beds) and looking around I noticed that everything was very tidy and clean, plus they had A/C and Dish Network.

During my stay it was very nice and quiet in the surrounding area. My only cons would be that the WiFi was spotty in my room and I wished that the shower would have had a bit more pressure to it. But all in all I would come again if I was in the area.

Ridiculously expensive for what you get, but very cheap for the Boston area. It was our first visit at this OLD motel. The first night, we got a room that was dirty (carpet, walls, etc.) and if I could have booked another hotel at a decent price, I would have moved. At least, the bed were comfortable with clean sheets. We didn’t sleep much all night because of yelling and loud TV in the room next to us.
We got another room for the last 2 nights. The room had been revamped a little and was cleaner (walls, bathroom and shower), but still, not inviting to spend time into. Don’t feel this hotel deserves its 2 star rating.As for the free WiFi, it is close to non existent.
The staff was helpful and the motel is situated in a nice suburb which was a paradox to see such a cheap/old motel in such a nice area. Getting to Boston is 25 minutes by car to Alewife Station then another 20 minutes via subway to the downtown area.
Basically, you pay too much for what you get and lodging in Boston is ridiculously too expensive.
In closing, visiting Boston with family: CHECKED. Therefore, will not need to go back to pay over-inflated prices for low class motels…

Very clean room and facilities and comfortable beds. Room a little old fashioned but newly painted. Family run hotel. The staff at reception was welcoming and very helpful. Good value for money. We would stay here again. C G

Decent accommodation at a good price
Room was not entirely clean but the bed was, which was key to us
Close to the hotel is a great supermarket where one can eat too, making this a very convenient location to see Boston for two days without paying the horrendous hotel and parking fees within Boston.
Takes about 25 min to get into Boston with a car.
Can recommend to anyone who watches their budget.

Stayed here a few years ago, but this time was disappointing. It's an old motel. Peeling paint and wall paper. No amenities to speak of. There was a refrigerator but no coffee or microwave. Beds are ok but older. Sheets had a couple small stains. A/C worked well. Bathroom is ok but again old. No tub, just a shower, which is small but works. Customer service isn't great. Office has limited hours and the people aren't the most friendly, but not horrible. Boston is about 1 hour away via bus/subway. Compared to Boston prices it's reasonable, but still don't feel like you get what you pay for.

We check in to an entryway with tattered carpeting and plexiglass so you can slip your money under the opening and they'll pass your key.....guess that's for insecure after-hour check-ins..? We go to our room and while I'm throwing back the sheets to tell him the sheets are stained, he's yelling from the bathroom.
that he just killed a roach. Needless to say, we didn't stay. While I'm on my phone trying to find another hotel, he discovers the picturesque view of retired appliances of all kinds out the back window......I'm so sorry, but what a dump!!!
