I stayed there for a weekend. The motel is on excellent location located across the Yankee candle. Most of the restaurants and colonial sits are not far from the motel. I traveled from New York in the summer. I will soon be visiting again!

The worst experience I ever had was here! I was not the only one who had this complaint. Rooms were filthy and dingy. I would not bathe my dog in their bathroom, let lone my precious grandkids. Had to leave the next day as I was grossed out. Refrigerator, microwave were dirty and with hair also next to the sink...

My husband and i stayed there and were totally disgusted by this place. The linen was dirty, the towels had spots on them, the tub didn't drain, there's mold on the shower curtains and a train goes by every 10-20mins...ALL NIGHT LONG even into the wee hours of the morning. We didn't eat breakfast so i can't comment on that...

Although the people who run this place talk to you politely, it is becoming more run down each time we go there. Won't stay there any more. Train tracks in the back are the least of the worries. Mold on first floor rooms, looks like it flooded at some point. Wifi is mostly not obtainable, no matter where you are...

Great location , bed was very comfortable staff was extremely friendly room was decent nothing fancy but it worked for what we needed. The pool area could definitely use a good cleaning up and it wouldn't hurt if they put some money into having the pool redone . I did not eat the breakfast so can't say what that area...

None of the advertised amenities were what they were said to be: 1) breakfast was non-existent 2) pool was filthy 3) In room Wi-Fi was spotty at best 4) phone was broken and had to be repaired The room was extremely sub-par. The carpet was so dirty that we might as well have been walking outside in the mud. We...

Booked online,didn't expect a 5 star hotel but this was a nightmare. Walked into the office to check in and heard a voice from the back that someone would be right with me. A couple minutes later a girl walked out and checked me in. As soon as I opened the door to the room there was this terrible stench...

Was not expecting a palace but ...... What a joke . This place should be demolished and rebuilt from scratch. The first thing I should say is there is a train track 10 metres from the back wall of the rooms which can be used as a make shift alarm clock because at 4am the worlds longest freight train goes...
