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.
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
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
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.
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
Near the town Frigidaire and microwave missing
the renovated rooms are clean and modern I wish there was a coffee machine in the rooms.
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!
Good value and access to trains (though across an unmarked-for-pedestrian walkway)!
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.
Absolutely nothing. 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.
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.
Close to Boston The hotel was dirty, I don't think a vacuum cleaner passed by that place in months.
Very basic. The room looked like someone had plundered it the night before. Outlets were loose in the wall, doors were missing from nearly all the drawers, It also smelled of stale cigarettes in a supposed non smoking room.
Very quiet The room smelled like smoke.
Related to the price, it's clean and have a good service The WI-FI signal is very poor in the rooms. To use Internet, you have to go outside near the reception.
Several decent restaurants were in the area. The room and particularly the bath need complete rejuvanation.
I liked the staff and the convenient location to places on the south shore of Boston The carpet needed to be shampooed
Leaving Being here! I know the saying goes "you get what you pay for". It is still very much true. The price and location were the only things that passed at this Motel. Several police cars and a K-9 unit met us at the entrance. Followed by a major leak from the room above, to get moved into another room which looks to have stains on the curtains of undeterminable variety.
I like that it was close to everything I was looking for. Nothing, great for the price.
This updated and rebranded Howard Johnson offers a traveler a great value with a 10-minute walk to the Red Line of MBTA. Good resources for restaurants, coffee shops, and bakeries in walking distance. The facility is newly redone, and looks great. Simple, clean appearance from the street that carries through to the interior. This is a simple place, with no lounging lobby or other common area than a breakfast room. This is a place for travellers who will be out visiting and sight-seeing for the majority of their time here. Rooms can vary. The room they initially put us in seemed only partially updated with an old Jacuzzi tub, paint peeling on the ceiling and walls, and mould in the tiles around the tub. The paint job in the room was obviously inferior. That room was also next to the "Janitorial" room, which serves as the office and break room for cleaning staff that starts work at 6am — very noisy very early. Front desk staff easily and quickly moved us without fuss when we asked for another room. This one was completely redone and a lovely glassed in large shower. The only other thing to note is that since this is a refurb, the sound-deadening is less than in a newer facility and the sound-sealing, such as the door with no seals around it, allows for noise to come in the room more than contemporary construction. Ultimately, we might use this place again, because it is a great value.
Everything! Room was clean (great shower!), staff was helpful, breakfast was good, price was affordable, and it was near where we were going. Favorite place I've stayed in a while, even compared to places twice the price.
