"The hotel was set back enough that we didn't hear the highway noise. It was clean and well-run, and the staff was accommodating and pleasant. The only negative was the awful lighting in the room; every light was a bright halogen light with no dimmer. Take advantage of the wonderful restaurants on Moody Street.2021-05-09"

"The room was comfortable, though the AC was a bit noisy. We received a warm welcome, and the staff had a gift for our puppy. They even helped us unload our car without being asked. Delicious breakfast buffet. We enjoyed our stay and would return to this hotel.2018-05-17"
"Perfect location and lovely accommodations. Stay at this hotel.2016-09-07"
"Nice hotel. Right off the highway, with lots of restaurants nearby. Close to the MBTA station for traveling into Boston. No complimentary breakfast, and food prices were high. There was free parking in a covered garage.2016-05-19"
"This is a top-notch hotel with top-notch customer service. The room was gorgeous, and the employees were all accommodating, friendly, and helpful. No complimentary breakfast. Great experience; stay here.2019-09-01"
"The hotel needed updating. The room had a lot of damage that apparently was done by cats, like torn curtains and clawed furniture. There was loud noise from the room next door well after midnight.2021-11-15"
"Hotel room was clean. Nice breakfast and snack hour. Well worth the stay.2015-01-27"
"Not worth the price. I found toenails on the floor, and had to chase after a housekeeper when I found that the bed had no bedsheet. No spare towels available. The front desk service was poor, and the employees overall didn't seem to care about customer service. Don't stay at this hotel.2022-10-11"
"Great location. The hotel was clean and updated. Easy check-in and checkout and awesome complimentary breakfast. Free, convenient parking. Great sports bar and restaurant called Miller's just across the street.2018-11-27"
"Not much to do within walking distance. The hotel was a little pricey, but the room was awesome and the staff was friendly. I recommend staying here.2018-05-29"
"We arrived at the hotel an hour after check-in, but our room wasn't ready. After waiting another 15 minutes, the clerk said it still wasn't ready and gave us a different room type. I wasn't impressed with the room; it was smaller than I wanted and right by the highway. On a positive note, the bartender was nice. Don't stay here.2020-02-16"
"Nice hotel, but it was difficult to find. It was new, simple, and elegant. Located next to the Alewife Greenway Trail.2017-09-07"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
