Dated hotel

Posted Sep 8, 2014
This place needs to be renovated, it looks old and smells like it too. Our room had an overwhelming smell of mildew, which I'm guessing had something to do with the old carpet. From the popcorn ceiling to the antique carpet. . This place was dated.

Disappointment

Posted Aug 26, 2014
We have stayed at this Marriott many times. On this occasion, we were sent to our room and, after about 15 minutes, someone came to the door and opened it. The gentleman came in and saw us. He explained that he and and his wife had been in this room and wanted to change and that the front desk gave him a key to retrieve some things that his spouse had forgotten. We were stunned and then realized that they had used the bathroom, removed various toiletries and taken the plastic laundry bag before they had switched rooms. We complained and the manager blamed a subordinate for giving the previous occupant a key. She offered free internet but, in the process of authorizing it, blocked our use of the internet for about an hour. We don't have much choice but to stay at this hotel because of its proximity to my mother-in-law's home. But, if there was a good alternative, we would take it.

Hotel gem near Boston, Charles River and colleges

Posted Aug 24, 2014
I was not expecting such a wonderful hotel . Everything was perfect! Next door there is an amazing place you can walk to rent kayaks and other boats in a beautiful and unspoiled part of the Charles River. We actually saw herons and turtles! Who knew!

Will return

Posted Aug 24, 2014
This is our second time at this hotel, and we enjoyed this stay just as much as the first time. Just minutes from Boston and right near great boating place. Inside great accommodating staff. This time there was a leak in the a/c, and it was taken care of immediately. Highly recommend this place.

Access to Boston...

Posted Aug 21, 2014
Pros: Easy access to highway system - Boston and surrounding areas. Large parking area.
Cons: Price the rooms to include parking and wireless. It is tacky to nickel and dime customers for these and other services.
Location: At I90/I95 jcn in Newton, MA.
Arrived 10:00 pm. At check-in, reception was rather brusque. We were told that they were busy with a large wedding party. Our room was across from elevators, and we were disturbed several times by "crowd" noise in the hallway and by a noise that may have been a service elevator. Parking and wireless are at additional cost.

Price is not that good.

Posted Aug 20, 2014
Pros: good.
Cons: Breakfast should be covered in the rate.
Location: We come to visit Boston, drive to Riverside train stop and park there($6/day) is very convience. Beside, hotel has shuttle to the station also.
Price is not that good, not covering breakfast which is good and very costly. Bed is very confortable, room view good, stuff good, gym good. Position is very close to I90 & 95, which is too closed that we miss the correct ramp twice.

Nice hotel for relaxation

Posted Aug 19, 2014
Our family, of 4 people, reserved 2 double bed rooms in the beginning but we got a king bed as a miscommunication. The second day we got the room requested that was better. Initially the room stated full breakfast to be included however the concierge told us very rudely that it's only for two people.

Good hotel

Posted Aug 19, 2014
Ive been wrongfully charged for parking fees on the last day of my trip The receipt was thrown under the door early on the morning...kind of sneeky...However, the gentleman at thr front desk didnt argue and cleared the fees. Other than that, the bathroom was a little bit small imo but was very acceptable. I enjoyed my trip overall, room/hotel in general was clean. The restaurant on the hotel was very expensive. I overall had a pleasant experience.
