Disgusting

Would not recommend Fri, Aug 17, 2012
The room had not been vacuumed and reeked of a recently-sprayed air freshener. When I tried to open the window for fresh air, I caught the screen just before it fell out of the window. There was garbage under the bed, dishes in the kitchen area had been put away dirty and the batteries had been removed from the TV remote. Unjfortunately, I knew there were no vacancies in the area under $300 otherwise I would have checked out and demanded a refund. To add insult to injury, what I paid for this room was exorbitant.

Filthy and a price gouger to boot

Would not recommend Wed, Aug 1, 2012
Unfortunately, the local hotels were booked out so the Homestead was my only choice. By comparison, I have had the pleasure of staying at the Westin which is about 200 yards away with a room rate of ~$219. At the Homestead, I paid the room rate of $235. What did I experience? The stench of cheap disinfectant upon entering the building. The only elevator was broken. Water dripping from the hallway ceiling. The desk attendent was not at the desk upon my arrival or departure. Dirty, worn out carpets in the common areas. A room that smelled of old smoke, stale beer, body odor, urine, and disinfectant. An air conditioner, that, while it did barely work, made a terrible racket. Carpeting in the room that was so old, worn out, and dirty, that I kept my shoes on at all times. Given the filth of the room, while I did not get any bedbug bites, I hardly slept due to concerns about what animals might come emerge when the lights were out. I went to bed at 11 PM. Due to the noise of the air conditioner and wondering about cockroaches and rats, I awoke at 1:30. My limo pickup was not until 8 AM. However, to escape this place, I called a cab and checked out around 5 AM since paying to ride in a cab was preferable to waiting in the building. In addition to the filthy, dilapidated state of the Homestead, the Homestead price gouges. The room card indicated a maximum rate of $200/night. I was charged $235. Please stay away from the Homestead. It would be preferable to stay at a Comfort Inn 20 miles away than this place.

Worst Hotel Experience Ever!

Would not recommend Mon, Feb 27, 2012
I will never go back to this hotel. There are NO amenities, the dishware was filthy, the room was dirty, not even any shampoo. They only make up the room every 7 days so a little tiny bar of soap has to last a week. The "free" wi-fi was worthless. I paid for an upgrade to "fast" wi-fi and it was still too slow to use. Desk clerks were useless in addressing any problems.

Weekend Getaway

Would recommend Mon, Dec 12, 2011
We were hesitant to stay at the hotel because of the price and the previous reviews but we took a risk. It couldn't of been a better deal! The hotel was right off the highway, it was a Queen size bed with a small kitchenette, and the bathroom was extremely clean. I did find it odd that we had to go to the front desk for extra supplies, but that would not make us not go there again. I liked how when we got back to the hotel around 11pm, we had to use our key to get into the hotel. Security was a nice additive even though it wasn't in a bad area. I would recommend this place to a friend and would probably stay there again, especially knowing there is a usable kitchen!

Good value for a 3-day stay

Would recommend Mon, Nov 28, 2011
For what we paid, having two queen beds and a kitchenette met our needs completely for a family of four. The staff told us that there is no house-cleaning for stays under 7 days. If we need fresh towels, they are available, but we have to exchange them at the front desk. But that worked out fine for us. A great value overall!

decent last minute hotel

Would not recommend Mon, Oct 3, 2011
Hotel was in a nice secluded type of environment. Stayed there for two nights and don't recall the room ever being attended to by the hotel staff (cleaning). I'm not too picky,but a decent place overall for something last minute.

Nightlife hint

Downtown Boston Clubs/Bars all over.

Nice to have the kitchen..

Would not recommend Mon, Sep 26, 2011
One staff member was very helpful with guiding me to the hotel over the phone, right to the front door. I was coming from Boston and was totally stressed. She was calm and helpful. Some things I wish I had known right away were: if staying under 7 days you must get towels at the desk, you pay extra if you want housekeeping, you need to ask for dish soap. I had to have the tub unclogged, the bathroom could have been cleaner, and I wouldn't walk on the carpet without socks. There was a small strip mall close to the hotel, but it was not pointed out, and I would have utilized it a few times.

Dining

Nice to have a place within walking distance if just to get out for a walk and talk to folks.
