Never again!

The place is a dump, the room is clean and room is comfortable but the location is bad. The breakfast is terrible. Although the price is good, I am never going there again. I don't recommend it.

Ok for the price

Just a one night stay. Basic room except it did have a small fridge and a microwave. Game room was gone. TV was good size and the continental breakfast was good.

A great stay

I was happy that I was able to sleep in such a safe, sybaritic, clean room for the night I spent in Springfield, MA. Everything I used in the room was working very well. The TV had very good quality, and the breakfast was good.

It could have been worse.

I booked it because they had the best rate in the area and we were only staying one night. The Good: The beds were extremely comfortable. The staff was responsive when I was concerned about the noise coming from the party room. They were helpful when asked about directions. The free breakfast was decent. The view of the pond was very pretty. The Bad: The bedspreads were stained and the carpet/room as a whole didn't appear very clean. The bathroom wallpaper was peeling although the fixtures seemed new. Would I stay there again? Probably not.

ok but could be better

i made my reservations about 3 weeks ahead of time. i even called them twice to confirm my room. and as far as i knew everything was all set to go. well when i got their that was not the case! thay told me that thay did'nt have the room thay charged me for. and thay were not gonna return any of my money. and if i did'nt like it go get another room some were else. my wife got so upset it allmost messed up or whole trip. so i told them to give me a min and let me contact cheeptickets. then the manager said he would give me 25 bucks off! but they were charging me 125 a night but the room thay put me in was like about 89 bucks a night. by now i was tired and did'nt wanna deal with it anymore. so i took it and got the room. the next day i called cheeptickets and thay gave me another 75 bucks. i still got riped off but i got some of my money back. the room was ok the bed was good and the view was real nice! the bathroom was ok to but the tolit got backed up i had to get a plunger. the hot tub was great after i got the hair out (grose) and went to store and got my own bathroom cleaner and clean'd it. but the staff was about as rude as it gets! thay think thay can talk to people anyway thay feel! and that was the so called manager! i belave thay gave my room away and thay just stuck me in a cheaper room and still wanted to charge me top doller! so be carefull of what room you get thay dont have all the thing thay say thay do. like a sofa bed. in the hot tub room oh and the free wifi did'nt work eatheir! i would stay again if staff cleans up their act and their hot tubs!

Better than expected

The room was nicely laid out. The beds were quite comfortable. We had a delightful view of a lake with frequent views of water fowl swimming and feeding. The breakfast room also had a view of the lake and the geese even came up on the hotel lawn while we ate.

Very reasonable but certainly not fancy

This is more of an old-fashioned motel. It's a busy location and the buildings were quite old, but everything was very clean and the staff was very professional and friendly. The room was small and rather dark, but the tv, the plumbing, and the heat/AC worked just fine(unlike more expensive hotels in the area). There was a brand-new small refrigerator and a microwave in the room. In the morning, I was impressed to find windows in the breakfast room overlooking a cute little lake.
