Honestly for the price, which is low considering it is near Boston, I was pleasantly suprised. The TV needed work as reception was spotty. It reminded me of the old rappit ear antennae days haha. But overall I would recommend it was clean and staff was pleasant and friendly

Good continental breakfast. Clean basic accommodations. Competent staff. No frills. If you’re looking for just a place to sleep and have continental breakfast, this is the place for you. If you’re looking for something more, it isn’t. Had a McDonald’s and an IHOP next door.
