“Very Nice Staff”
Reviewed 4 June 2012

I stayed in this hotel for the weekend in June 2012. The location itself is a bit off the beaten path, and about a 30 minute T ride to downtown Boston. However, the value and quality of the hotel more than make up for the trip if you have the time for the traveling. I arrived early and was able to check in at 10:30 am, which was wonderful. The room was a good size, clean and updated. The bed was comfortable. Free wi-fi also. The hotel provides a shuttle to the T stop until 11pm. The shuttle driver left early one evening, and the hotel paid for a cab to bring us back from the T. They also did the same on Sunday, after we had already checked out, which I thought was above and beyond. Additionally, there was a complimentary hot breakfast that included waffles and eggs, homefries and sausage. The breakfast was very impressive. All in all, for the price (which also considers free parking, about a $35 per night savings from other Boston area hotels), if you can afford a little extra time in your day on the T, this is a great hotel.

Room Tip: Although the parking lot and halls smelled a little funny from the factory next door, the rooms were...

The location is right by 93 which is the direct route into Boston. Also, five minutes away as the south shore plaza (really nice mall). This hotel offers free breakfast which although had a good variety, it tasted just average. Sure it's free but I've had better free breakfasts at other hotels, including another Hampton inn I stayed at in NJ. I think they were doing construction next door because the concrete smell was unbearable outside and was also very noisy. Not a big deal, since it didn't really affect my sleep/stay at all. The rooms were perfect. Good size and very home-y feeling. I'd stay here again.

The Hampton Inn was, as expected, clean and convenient. It was as close as I could get to where I was working that week, and only a 2-3 minute drive to some good restaurants. Unfortunately, there's some sort of industrial facility next door on the north side of the hotel. There was a repetetive loud noise that ran 24 hours a day during the week, but not on Sunday night when I was there. It sounded like a loud, but short burst of noise similar to a wood chipper and was only every few minutes. It was a little annoying, but it didn't keep me from sleeping.

The rest of the stay was good and I really enjoyed the continental breakfasts!

Room Tip: Get a room on the south side, it will be much quieter.

We stayed for a couple of nights in April 2012 before flying out of Logan and enjoyed the stay.

I've been to a number of Hampton Inns before and never been unhappy with the stay. I must admit though that I had a few reservations about this place after reading a number of comments on Tripadvisor about this place and the industrial unit next door and the smell that eminates from it.

Yes, you can smell a plasticy smell from the building next door when you are out in the car park on the side of the industrial unit. When you are parked the other side of the hotel though, you can't. The industrial unit was there before the hotel.... When you are in the hotel you can't smell a thing.

Our room was overlooking the unit - if possible, try to get a room on the other side of the hotel and you'll be fine. My wife complained a little on the noise at night from the industrial unit, but no complaints from me; I thought it was the AC unit and it didn't bother me.

I used the pool / hot tub and the business centre, but didn't use the guest laundry or gym. What I did use though was first rate. The hot tub was very large, but the jets were not strong enough in my opinion to shoot water across such a sized pool. It was more like a hot bath.

Within the pool room, each bathroom had a shower unit in it as well which was a nice touch.

The room was a good size, the two beds incredibly comfortable and the TV large. There was also a fridge and microwave. The room also had a separate chair with foot rest as well as a desk which made the room a little less formal.

The toiletries in the bathroom were good. It is SO NICE to see mouthwash as well as part and parcel of the set up. Well done!

A hairdryer and coffee / tea facilities also good, and an ice machine and drink vending on each floor was useful. The room also had free wifi internet. The TV alslo had a console joystick (although not used, so I don't know if it is a free service or an additional charge).

The breakfast, as per all Hampton Inns was plentiful. Fruit, cereals, bagels / bread, waffles, cooked foods (omlettes, sausages, spicy breakfast potatoes) as well as yoghurt and others. Good quality, plenty of it and the breakfast lasts for many hours which is great!

The staff I spoke with were all really helpful, and to be commended.

I can't remember reading on other comments about this place about the free shuttle which will take you on a 4 mile radius run. I used it a couple of times and the service was invaluable. 4 miles takes you to the MBTA station, the mall (which is quite large) and plenty of other places. Using the T to Downtown Crossing takes about 20 minutes and it takes a 5 minute shuttle to Quincy Adams station.

The hotel has coffee and tea all day in the lobby and in the evening there is also cookies on the counter for you to request. In the morning, if you are in a hurry there is a breakfast pack already done as well if needed. A great little touch in my opinion.

Logan Airport is only a 25 minute drive (I left the hotel at 16:30, so was expecting a journey time of much more!)

The hotel location is on an industrial estate, so nothing is within walking distance in reality (the mall is about 1 mile, but you have to cross a couple of major roads and intersections...) which detracts from the place.There is a holiday Inn Express pretty much opposite and a Candlewood Suites next door.

All in all, for the price paid, there is no complaints. You know what you are getting, the hotel was in great condition, the staff very friendly and the facilities consistent with other hotels in the chain. I Would stay there again.

Room Tip: Get a room on the side away from the industrial unit next door

I was impressed by the customer service at my arrival. The staff has obviously been well trained. It's hard to tell the age of the property because it's been so well maintained. The appointments are not brand new but show no signs of wear or abuse. My room was impeccably clean, comfortable and quiet. Bed and shower top notch. The wifi is not the strongest but that's why I have 3G on my Ipad. There is a large mall about 5 minutes drive away with a great Legal Seafood. Access to Boston is convenient. All in all I'd say this is a great value and I would certainly stay here again.

We stayed here for 8 nights while visiting relatives and sight-seeing. It was fabulous. The room was absolutely the best and the bed was comfy. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast every morning. It was always nice and clean. My only complaint was that there was too much chlorine in the pool but I would stay there again.

The location is nothing to brag about, but convenient to shopping mall and restaurants and easy access to I93. It's one of the few affordable hotels in the area. Only problem is it's located right beside some kind of small factory, so the outside air has a plastic like smell at times. Fortunately, there is no odor inside the hotel. I've stayed here several times and the front desk staff is extremely friendly in a way that makes me feel welcome, but not in a "have a nice day" corporate mandate way. Room was clean and comfortable as expected. Bed is really comfortable. Breakfast is same as all of the Hamptons, but while ample, I wish they would freshen it up a bit. Didn't use the pool but it looked nice.
