Recent guest reviews

We have stayed here multiple times. Location is great and price is right. Unfortunately, I left a bracelet behind in the room that didn't turn up in lost and found. I didn't expect it to be turned in, but I wish housekeeping would realize things like this mean much more than their worth! It can't be sold for anything, but it was near and dear. My fault, however, I was hoping for an honest person to find it and that didn't happen :-(

We were very please with the location of the hotel. The hotel staff were very pleasant and courteous to us. They greeted you when you came back to the hotel. Our room was always kept very clean by the hotel maids. We were very pleased that there was so many different breakfast foods to choose from,

The hotel had a good location and was walkable to mass transit. It was also near a very nice outdoor mall/shopping area with restaurants and stores. Hotel itself was adequate but not a standout.

Not a very nice hotel, only had to stay there for one night for work and I advised our office not to book there anymore, too expensive for a hotel that is not very nice. Nicer hotels are not far off on price difference.

The staff was excellent. My only complaint is that they did not provide us with enough shampoo, conditioner for 4 people. We called for towels and wash clothes and they provided those immediately. The room was very good size for two adults and two children.

The room was a good size and clean. Water pressure was very low and couldn't get much hot water.

Staff was friendly, facility is good, long hair in the sink and this is a pet friendly hotel, had to listen to a dog barking most of the night.

This hotel is dated but it was clean and in working order. While it may not please everyone, it meet our expectations given that we were primarily looking at convenience, price and access to the T subway system. Our needs were primarily to stay in a place where we could sleep comfortably. This hotel was within a 1/4 mile of the T system-probably the best way to get around in Boston and the surrounding area. It also gave us access to the Assembly Outlet Mall which has many nice restaurants, a nice marina and a few shops of interest. There is a KMart, Bed,Bath and Beyond and some other stores within walking distance too. The hotel has a funky green policy so if you want your linens changed daily, be sure to place the room card on your pillows or your linens will only be changed every 3 days. We had one day when the maid seemed to clean the room and supply fresh towels but left without making up the beds. But when I spoke to the desk staff they were helpful and it was no biggie. So for a fuss free stay without the downtown Boston costs, this is fine. After a day in the city sight seeing, we were happy to relax in a place and at restaurants that were less hectic and congested. The Assembly Row area is under construction so there is some dust etc. A Marriott Courtyard is expected to be built in the next year.This area will probably be a much more hopping place in the future. If you are new to the Boston experience, don't drive---its insane. Shuttle service and breakfast-not great.

Leave car and get an hourly shuttle to Logan. 5am is good.

Very accommodating staff. Complimentary breakfast wasn't the best. Would stay there again.

Hotel was situated very close to Boston so we were able to visit colleges and spend the weekend in the City without much hassle

Room was a smoking room despite requesting non smoking. Toilet seat was broken. Not good value for money. Chose it for proximity to the airport .

The hotel is situated right behind the new mega mall and right off the main hightway. The room was clean and big enough for two queen beds but there was an poor oder that we had to get used to. But for the oder eveything else was ok.

I was in Bostob for business and stayed at the Hotel. I felt the hotel was pretty pricey given its location. It wasn't a super comfortable stay.

We reserved a room for one Saturday night at this hotel. We usually stay at the Element in Lexington but it was booked for that weekend. La Quinta needs a major renovation as all the amenities are outdated, room smelled like an ashtray (mind you, we asked for non-smoking), bathroom tub needed a good scrub, bathroom towels smelled and looked like they were used, the free hot breakfast was a joke, front desk staff was OK.

This was a very friendly and convenient place to stay.

Was in town for a couple of Concerts and Sox game. Hotel was ok but nothing special.

room is clean, quite the staffs are friendly. The breakfast is ok.

Cost was reasonable for the location and amenities provided. There was free shuttle available, but times were a little inconvenient. Overall was a good experience. Would recommend this hotel if you are familiar with the area and do not mind driving outside of Boston.

Impossible to find at night and with the one way streets it was awful,
