Location. We wanted to get out of the Boston area. Price was appropriate. Bed was extremely uncomfortable. Terrible night's sleep.
Hotel refused to refund me after having to switch hotels. Took third party booking company a week to win me the refund.
Quiet location yet close to town. Rooms were very large and clean. Big bathroom that had been updated. The breakfast was a little insufficient. Coffee, donuts, and juice were advertised but by the time we got there only 2 donuts remained. They were prepackaged and not fresh which is what I was expecting. The lobby is very small so it was difficult to get to the juice and donuts which were behind the entry door.
Lovation is nice because it was far enough, but close enough to freeway. Nicely sized room. 2 sinks were nice. The grounds & the room smelled of smoke despite it being a non-smoking room. When I opened the door, I was overcome by the smell of chemical cleaners. I had to open the window to air out & it was cold outside.
Clean room ! Easy check in. Friendly staff
We liked the Euro feel and look of the wooden carpetless floor and sparse furniture. We could see it was clean, whereas most hotel carpets hide all sorts if nasties. The room could have been so much nicer with simple upgrades of comforters and better sheets. The thin old sheets and ratty blanket with cigarette burns was vulgar. The clerk told us no more blankets we'te available. When I complained that our TV didn't work, the clerk said he could nothng about it. My girlfriend got on the phone and demanded another room and we were moved up to the smoking floor, where the bathroom light didn't work. A new existential challenge for me, trying to successfully negotiate the toilet paper tumbler and what have you in the dark. Small fixes could truly make this a great value. But the inconveniences and cheap blanket proved too much for the $113 cost. If it cost $58 a night? Sure.
very near to the highway not clean at all!!!
Since our last stay there have been lots of changes. Much cleaner and updated a bit. Ice machine only working on once floor. No reminder at check- in to pay for wi- fi.
It was very clean. It looked like a barracks with the cement walls in the corridors and rooms. The mattresses were a little uncomfortable and the sheets scratchy.
no carpets, hardwood floors were clean Beds and pillows were awful. Had a spring in my ribs all night and the pillows just deflate when you lay your head down on them. slept poorly
Easy to reach from the Highway. Rooms were basic, but clean. No shampoo included.
It was not as expensive as many other motels close to Boston It was hard to get to the hotel if you came from the north - none of the soda-maschines worked - no possibility for breakfast
I would never stay there again! The staff was very nice and heloful, but the property is gross. The elevators were dirty and disgusting, the room although remodeled, was done in a very cheap way. The room felt dirty, the bedding was gross, the bath towels were tiny and rough and there was very little places to put things (the bathroom definitely needs a shelf). Mtg bath tub looked like someone vomited down the front of it and the freezer of my mini fridge was all ice ; cleanliness did not appear to be a priority.
I liked that there was an indoor pool. It was affordable and in a good location pool was closed for cleaning 2 hours the morning before we left. Kids wanted to swim that morning but couldn't
Motel had not received booking from you when we arrived
Vinyl floors were fine, seemed cleaner then dirty old carpets. We found hair in the bed, pizza sauce on the telephone, the stifling smell of smoke in a nonsmoking room. The sheets were awful and all nubby. worst of all the power in part of the hotel was out all of the evening and half the night. It was clearly a problem with the hotel's electricity, not the weather. And at check out in the morning the staff informed us that there would be no refunds or discounts for our horrible night. We couldn't shower, use the a/c, charge our phones or even see to navigate the room. It was an absolute terrible experience and I wouldn't recommend staying in a motel 6 to any one.
The room was modern, very clean, and the bed and shower were good. The room was supposed to be non-smoking but wasn't. My eyes watered, and the smell was overpowering. There wasn't decaffeinated coffee as an option in the morning.
Arrived midnight with small kids. Told hotel/ Internet had overbooked!!! All places around sold out. Ended up sleeping in car at rest stop. Never again will we use this site!!! Nothing
The only good part was a location They clams it was renovated .... Non sense never put a dine in to it. No good
the staff was so nice & did everything they could to try and make us feel comfortable. kayak sucks! will never book through them again! they messed up our reservation and we were stuck without a place to stay for a good 5 hours waiting in the motel lobby on the phone with hotels.com trying to get them to fix their mistake.
Friendly treatment by the recepcionist. Excellent price for short stays.
Comfortable and clean, but recommended only for short stays, since there's nothing in the area. This motel is very basic. There's no breakfast and there are very few places around for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The city has no social life at all, so you have to take the car to go to Cambridge or Boston, which are far than expected (40-50 min). Personnel not very helpful.
The price was so low that I was expecting to be cheated, but the reviews were excellent, so I tried it. We were 2 and we both found this motel wonderful, it's really quiet, in a nice location, well-kept, the rooms are very clean and the staff is extremely nice. It was a great value for the money we spent, and we would surely stay here again. It's a little bit far from Boston, but with a car it is 10 minutes drive and there is a 7$ parking for the whole day!
Convenient budget motel near Boston, quick drive to Cambridge via Route 2. Includes pastry and coffee or tea. We got on our way quickly and easily.
Nothing Rooms were disgusting, they don't move furniture when vacuuming the floor.
Nice area. Right next to a great ice cream shop. The room had a weird smell. The closet had a piece of ceiling missing exposing it to the attic. Could not use wi-fi or cell phone in the room.
hotel was basic clean no noise nice clientele ice cream parlor right next door convenience 2 mins away bedspreads
the room was clean but the smell was ugly poor detergernts. enoungh for one night only.
Convenient location. Toilet backed up. Managment provided plunger.
I liked the facilities in my room I did not like the bathroom shower and the door which could not be locked
good location at a reasonable price; 20 minutes by car from alewife T station, cambridge, for convenient traveling into Boston outdated room accommodations
Nothing You are literally slipping on Highway 1 It is noisy ! It is hold and smelly ! Earplug are an absolute need to get two hours of sleep ! The very worst Motel I have ever slept in - and all of these conveniences for $96.50 !!!!!!
nothing. This place was so gross. I've had good success in the past, even with 2 star places, but this place was not two star - it was less than 1 star. The front office guy was creepy. The whole place looked like it was under construction. I booked a room with 2 queen beds. When I got there, I was given a room with two double beds. When I asked, I was told that I was mistaken, and the guy insisted that the beds in my room were queen sized. (They were not!). The place was completely run down and depressing. The blinds in the room didn't close all the way. There were no curtains of any kind to draw across the window. When I tried to reverse the blinds, there were dead insects attached to the back of the blinds. There was trash left over from the previous occupant. The list goes on. I was extremely disappointed with the experience, and angry with the booking service that rated this hotel incorrectly.
The atmosphere was clean, comfortable, and quiet. It's not Fancy, but if you are just passing through its perfect! It was close enough to go see the heart of Salem without having all the hustle and bustle and noise...and it's right off the main drag through town! Our room didn't have a microwave or fridge, but we didn't need one either. It may be a detrimental factor to others, though.
Clean, Friendly staff. There are cats in the lobby, beware in case you are allergic. It's dated, but very clean.
Great staff, clean, very large rooms. Not enough boats.
Room size, Clean Could not close window curtain if you wanted to use air conditioner. Extremely outdated. TV too small, No list of TV channels, no security lock on door. Bathroom water faucet difficult to use. Too expensive for what you get.
