Was insane sleep one night there, a lot noice, people in the hall smoking marijuana, I stayed in the first floor unid 110, the room in the second floor never stop making noice, a person nock my door at 1:00 am, and I told her what do you want? And she told me was a Mistake, I won’t never stay in that pig stey

Not clean enough rooms. Improper shower in bathroom

Bare bones hotel that will suffice if literally just needing to sleep for the night. Didn't feel totally unsafe, but was quite unimpressed with the lobby/hospitality. Also not too fond of the half-full coffee cup and Skittles we found in our room upon arrival (not ours). Red hairs were all throughout the bathroom - and my husband not I have red hair. Thankful for our white noise app so we didn't have to hear quite clearly that our local tenants were "enjoying" themselves. WiFi was actually pretty good though!

It was terrible in indeed.u ask something and they end up giving different stuff.and about the breakfast was horrible

We stayed here to catch a 6am flight out of Boston. The room was pretty clean and comfortable. But the neighborhood didn't seem safe. Also, not much light in the parking lot, which is a little sketchy at night in that neighborhood.

The room was really big, comfortable and very clean. The lobby and the grounds were just OK. It served my purposes; a good rate for being near Tufts University.

Room was alright clean but the staff were very rude defiantly wouldn't stay another night

The pictures make it look very nice, when I walked in the bathroom there was a used panty liner right on the trash can, the room smelled stuffy and it just seemed like the cleaning staff had only done a bare minimum to clean it.

TV doesn't work, ventilation fan sounds like locomotive. Besides the bathroom lights only 1 bedside lamp works so the room is so dim can't read anything. Wanted to store a piece of luggage so I can come back to pickup later for the airport but the staff said no place to store! There is no 1st floor room so I have to carry my 50lbs luggage up and down the metal stairs which is narrow and steep! Terrible experience and I will not stay or recommend anyone else to stay

Room had an odor rug was dirty and quiet old walls had spill Marks on them. Will not stay there again. At least bathroom was clean

This hotel did not meet my expectations. Both of the staff members that I dealt with were not helpful nor positive. The bedspread, floor, and hallways needed to be cleaned. I thought that the location would make up for the negative reviews I had read, but location was not enough.

the place was nothing but a big disgusting mess I want a refund

There was nothing really wrong with this hotel, but there wasn't anything particularly nice about it either. The rooms were standard, but the bathrooms were small. The beds were hard, and the walls were thin. The location isn't great, it is not near anything of interest, though it is about 15 minuets from Logan which was good. We were there for a house hunting trip and needed a reasonably priced homebase and it worked fine for that, but you would definitely need to rent a car. We had to get the room keys redone every evening, but the staff was nice enough about it. All and all this is an Econolodge, and you get what you pay for. It was functional, but that is about all.

Strip joint right down the block, women of the evening out on the street. Not cool.

Cheap, it's clean and it had plenty of parking. Very convenient.

Electronic key kept failing three times so maint. had to help each time. Other than that hassle was good

you get what you are paying for. I went with my friends for a weekend to assist to a concert. It is an acceptable hotel with just the basic. Room was clean.

Area was not stellar. Room had a smell and the toilet ended up not working properly. Friendly enough staff. Coffee and orange juice in am was a highlight. Easy bus access.

My non-smoking room smelled like a cigar parlor. I will not stay here again.
