  • Couple

    They check in proccess was quick, the room was clean.

    The location of the rooms was not very clear. There was road construction right outside the room which I was not aware of, it just meant I woke up a little earlier than expected to the sound of a jackhammer.

  • Couple

    The price is great for Boston!

    They said on the website you could leave your car for longer than your stay but hotel employees said no!

  • Older travelers

    Relatively reasonable price compared to other nearby accommodations. Breakfast was a nice feature.

    Could use some refurbishing. Room carpet was past service life.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The location was perfect to visit our daughter. It was very quiet. We never heard any other guests or doors slamming. I liked opening my door and being outside.

    I didn't like the slope of the walk to the lobby. It was raining and I was very worried about slipping.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    Internet and cell phone connection was dropped frequently and continuously for the first two days. A repairman came but the problem continued. We were then moved to a room near the front and closer to the main access frame. Connection improved but we still had connection problems. Also, when taking a shower, the water pressure and the water temperature changed often.

  • Older travelers

    Staff are excellent, breakfast sufficient. Cannot beat the price.

    Getting run-down.

    Clean and comfortable beds, got a king room, since we came early and queen was not ready! nice staff, easy parking in front of the room.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    It was clean and tidied up for an old structure. Breakfast was very good. Staff were very helpful. The location was perfect for our needs.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Very convenient to the T. Didn't need a car to get around. The breakfast served our needs. The site said they only had queen beds in their rooms, but ours was a king. Nice surprise.

    Bathrooms are small, but it's an older hotel.
