All modern rooms at this Motel 6 which include 32 TVs with input for gaming, wood-effect flooring, and Wi-Fi for $2.99 per 24 hours. We are 10 minutes from the University of Massachusetts, JFK Library, and New England Aquarium.
The good: Location Nice desk staff
The bad: Bed (hard as a rock) Shower (ours wasn't working properly) Bathroom overall (the sink was falling apart) Room overall (decor was of extremely poor quality) Noise
Rooms were dirty, bedding was very old looking and looked like it was never washed! It is more of a truck stop. I will not be staying in this motel ever again! Staff is cold and have no customer service skills
the renovated rooms are clean and modern
I wish there was a coffee machine in the rooms.
Good value and access to trains (though across an unmarked-for-pedestrian walkway)!
For business trip in economy style this motel is more than enough. I have no reasons to complain. Decent restaurant on premises and highway to Cap Cod and Boston are bid advantages. I will stay there next time definitely.
Paid Wi-Fi with login every day. Didn't they consider to charge also for water and air separately? Cheap pennypitching... And garbage recycling, it's time for it.
The price is good. Although we arrive very late we can find some personnel in front desk. It's very close to the big markets and 5 miles to Niagara.
Their breakfast is not good. No tea.
It had a good location - it was 2 minutes away from the subway.
It had no real sidewalk/walkway leading to the hotel. This makes it difficult for commuters (via subway) to reach the hotel on foot, especially when they have luggage.
Check out lady. She gave us a refund of the half room price without discussions, cause of the trouble see below.
The guy at check in was unfriendly. The room was dirty: long hairs in the bathtub, water standing in the sink and didn´t go away, the batheroom door was broken.
We had a clean and quiet back room. Close to the T subway - 30 minutes from the centre of Boston. You can see the motel as you arrive in Braintree Station. Well located for travellers on foot like us.
The blankets were old and needed replacement, certainly not up to the excellent standard of the sheets and quilt cover
Our room was the opposite of that what you may call a clean room. Let aside the hole that had been burnt into the blanket and the carpet by cigarettes (by the way: we booked a non-smoking room one week before our arrival). The blankets did not look that clean as they should be (we asked for new ones which once had been white and turn into yellow over the years) and last but not least we found the remains of vomit on one of our beds beds and on the door of the bathroom. The air in the room had the smell of a mixture of this distinguished ingredients (vomit plus cigarettes) that made it impossible to sleep. This place cannot be recommended, not at all.
Near the town
Frigidaire and microwave missing
The staff was really nice and allowed us to store our luggage with them at 8am so that we could go to the city and tour before checking in. I loved the fact that it was right next to the T line! Braintree is a bit far from downtown, but if you're on a budget...eh? Clean room, great cable, and nice staff.
Good for its price!
