The fire is a great idea and the room is clean. The security lock for the room was broken. The floors had weird sags and the bed was sinking towards the headboard leaving your head lower than your feet. The room had a thrown together vibe like any fixture would do. It kind of reminded me of a an old camper trailer with a bad floor. Vent in the bathroom didn't work. The shower had a horrible design that made you reach through the either hot or cold water to reach the handle and guaranteed that water would be exiting the enclosure. The toilet flushed so hard it visibly shook. I fixed one of the window shades. We had paid for two nights but I didn't care. I drove home after the first night.

It is a nice property. I’m not really sure why they would have a fireplace and then you get there and you can’t use it. The reason would be COVID. In Mass the state lifted outdoor mask requirement. I really feel that we are all adults and know what we need to to. We are vaccinated as well. There wasn’t anybody at the hotel so you have to call the sister hotel Red Lion to check in. You also must go there to have breakfast. The rooms don’t have that much amenities and the fridge wasn’t wiped out. We picked this place because of the fire pit. We were going to Marriot but stayed here instead. Kinda bummed…

Cute property in a great location. Small rooms with not much for amenities. Did the job as a room for the night but not much more.
