“What we expected from early american lodging”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2011

My wife and I used to frequent B&B'S before kids and haven't done this kind of thing in years (though we do travel quite a bit as a family). We recently had a free weekend (with babysitting available!) and went to the Boston area. The inn itself is what you expect...early american and common areas decorated that way. Very clean and neat, staff very helpful and pleasant. Very historic feeling. We bought a Groupon and stayed in the Prescott wing (I believe built in 1970's) which was also somewhat less historic in feel, again clean and neat. We were looking for a common room with a big fireplace and they have that but its a walk though from the entrance so it loses some of the feel we were looking for. Multiple places to eat, all good and not off the charts with regards to cost. Had the breakfast brunch Sunday morning (Groupon said included breakfast but in actuality we received a $10 credit each towards the cost of the brunch-not sure if this is typical or just a Sunday phenomena)---buffet was good. We agreed 4 out of 5 overall.

Other tips---We started Saturday in Cambridge at a place called Mr. Bartley's just off campus from Harvard. Found out about it from Diners, Drive-inns, and Dives. Cool atmosphere, good burger and steeped in tradition. Worth the trip though be careful where you park.....got a parking ticket for 34 minutes in a 30 minute parking spot. Then to Concord-easy 15 minute drive-quaint town, nice for walking. Great for shopping or just window browsing. Sunday was more town walking after a late breakfast, then to the Colonial Museum-had a special holiday exhibit with trees decorates for the holidays using 30 different kids books as themes. Even got my picture taken with Little Nutbrown Hare and the Pig of Pancake fame. The museum exhibits themselves are good for people who enjoy American Revolutionary History (including the lamp placed in the North Church by Paul Revere before starting his ride!). Overall I would recommend this as a good place to stay for a couple (no kids). Also-there is much more Revolutionary stuff to see (i.e. minute man national park, walden pond) which we did many years ago--lots of walking so plan accordingly.

Room Tip: Only can speak about Prescott wing-clean but not as historically feeling as the main inn

I was treated to a three day two night birthday getaway by my now fiancee, Patty. Being an American History buff, Veteran and a lover of great Authors. I was very excited to travel to Concord Massachussetts for the first time. This is the "cradle of the American Revolution". Our stay ay the Colonial Inn was average. The room was spacious and comfortable although there was some attention that needed to be taken to the paint on the window mullions, jambs and sills. The Inn was historic and had charm. There were a few Wedding Receptions being held on the same weekend. Parking was not easy to find. The receptions went well into the early morning and we were awakened by the ruckus of patrons leaving. The meals and breakfasts were well prepared and tasty. Overall an average stay at an above average location. I would reccommend this Inn to anyone whom would like to be close to the Historic attractions. Just be prepared. Our stay was not that quiet as the Inn is on th town Green or rather the town rotary.

Room Tip: In the rear of the building. Away from the rotary and the front entry.

My wife and I wanted to spend our anniversary in another old colonial inn like we did last year, but this time in Concord, so this place looked like a great option and I booked and paid for a deluxe suite for 4 nights. When we arrived however, we were given a regular room....which ended up being over the noisy bar where live entertainment plays late at night. I asked about the suite we booked and was told that was given to someone else for the next 2 nights and the entire inn was full and there wasn't anything they could do about it. The very nice woman at the front desk was obviously troubled by the mistake and gave us a $25 voucher for dinner to help appologize for the mistake and said that management would probably do more for us the next day. We are in the restaurant that night and found the menu rather limited and the $25 voucher didn't even cover either of our main entres let alone even half the meal.
The next morning other staff members at the front desk were unaware of the mixup and we had to explain the whole thing again but management didn't leave instructions for them so we had to check back again later....and again nothing was done so we spent another night in the noisy but otherwise very nice regular room. On the third day we finally spoke to a manager who helped us move over to the very nice suite in the Rebecca Guest House across the street and up a little. It's basically a 4 suite victorian house with hardwood floors, each with a kitchenette, living room, king size bedroom and a very tiny bathroom (at least that's how our suite was situated). This arrangement was what I originally booked and paid for for all four nights but we only got the last two nights here. No other compensation was offered so my wife asked them to do something and we were begrudgingly given 2 more $25 vouchers...which we used on a formal tea sitting the next morning (reservations needed) and they both didn't actually even cover all of that! $$$!
Upon checkout, the original front desk woman that we met when checking in was there again and was once again very appologetic and so nice that really, if not for her, I'd have dropped my 3 star rating to 2 for the entire experience.
Now about the rooms....
The normal room we had the first 2 nights was pretty nice, clean and semi spacious for an old colonial era inn. If it hadn't been over a loud bar / restaurant, it actually wouldn't have been a bad room to stay in at all. The TV was tiny and old but the WiFi worked great. The rooms are old and outdated but that is part of the charm of old inns like this.
The Rebecca Guests House suite we spent the last 2 nights in was very spacious and comfortable. Too bad the fireplaces in there aren't functional though! The hardwood floors are nice but not when you have small children running around on them in a suite above you. I would recommend requesting an upper floor suite if you choose to stay there.
We never really had any issues finding parking in the free lot behind the hotel and the location of the hotel is excellent to be able to walk to most of the downtown area shops and even to the train station where you can hop a ride into Boston for like $12 roundtrip.
The history of this area is awesome and we had a blast exploring it.

Room Tip: Unless you are into late night partying, you don't want room 20 which is over the bar where live...

I love this old place - such historic character and a beautiful setting. I like to sit on the front porch and watch the leaves fall or walk to the old north bridge. The food and beverages in the restaurants and pubs are excellent – I love the fine ales – clam chowder is great. Jazz night on Wednesdays is a favorite – if you don’t like the way things are in our country, have a chat with Moshe the Russian immigrant piano player – you’ll have a deeper appreciation for our great but imperfect country. The rooms are very comfortable and have a colonial (versus the plastic and veneer chains) feel. The staff is friendly and very helpful!

We stayed in the original part of the inn and had a spacious clean room which was right out of the 18th C. We had a great view of the historic Concord commons, wide plank floors, beamed ceilings and full large bathroom. We would definitely stay here again to tour colonial sites near Lexington and Concord, and we highly recommend the older rooms. This hotel contrasts favorably with not so well maintained cluttered old inns such as the one we stayed at recently in Ogunquit Maine (Rockmere Lodge). Staff here was very knowledgeable and professional. If you are also eating at the hotel make sure you plan for reservations in the more formal Merchants Row dining room. It's more elegant and less noisy with fewer young children running about. The other dining areas get quite frenetic.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the old wing not The newer Prescott wing.
