Our sheets were dirty, so that was not acceptable. I did as for new sheets and got four top sheets.

The room is dirty: dirty floor, dirty bathroom vanity with male hair shavings all over, smell of urine both in the room and bathroom, dried pieces of food in the fridge, hangers have layers of dirt and dust on them, head board had a thick layer of dirt and dust. I had to clean the room myself.

Stayed 2 nights in Oct. 2019


Pros: close to the area we wanted to be in. Starbucks, IHOP right next door. Cons: cracked window in room, black marks on wall and a shower floor that felt a it like a trampoline when standing on it. You get what you pay for! Back to Boston Park Plaza next time!
