“Quite decent”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

I stared here about seven years ago when it was a Tage Inn and gave it a three back then. The property is a lot nice than it was at that time.

The rooms appear to have been redone quite recently and were comfortable and upscale. Workdesk is very nice and there are plenty of plugs for your electronics. Wireless internet worked decently. The bed was pretty comfortable, flat screen TV was nice with basic channels and a couple of movie channels, but selection was a bit limited.

Minor details make this a four rather than a five, even though the rates are pretty cheap. The green and tan carpeting in the room shows dust and dirt and the room was not as clean as it should have been. Not terrible by any means, but there was a lot of visible dust which showed that some areas had not been well-vacuumed. The coffee maker had only one disk of regular coffee (two of decaf) and only one condiment packet. Again, shows housekeeping not paying attention to details.

Included breakfast was quite decent, plenty of seating, not a lot of variety but the pancake making machine was pretty nifty and the pancakes were tasty. There was a high school marching band staying in the hotel and while the kids at breakfast were polite and not noisy, a number of them came into the breakfast room barefoot. I am sure this is a health code violation and should not have been allowed.

If I come back to Andover solo I would happily stay here again. If I were traveling with my spouse I think I would spend a bit more and stay somewhere a bit nicer. But if you are looking to save a little money the place is quite decent.

Stayed here one night before flying out of Boston. Took flight line shuttle the next morning to Logan. It was clean and comfortable and I didn't have to pay the inflated prices in Boston. Will use again.

The walls are paper thin, you could hear the toilet flush 2 floors up. That said... the room was neat, nice bed, and clean. The pool was tiny, over run with kids. The great thing about this place is the 2 resturants in the same parking lot (Chili's / Italian). I tried for almost an hour to get a wake up call. The phone rang and rang. Finally someone pick up and put me on hold for ever than I was disconned... RREALLY!
So for the money, go for it... bring ear plugs and clock radio!

Room Tip: Don't listen to the bed bug story... it was clean I never saw a bug or even a speck of dirt!

Upon entering our room, we were immediately overwhelmed with smell of urine. The front desk was nice enough to change our room, however the next room also smelled like urine, although not as overwhelming as the first. Because it was very late, we decided to buck it up and stay the night. I would not recommend this hotel.

I've stayed here many times and it is still the best value in the area. Easy access to Boston without Boston pricing

Terrible rooms. The bed smelled of pee because the previous guests had set the bed. Was guaranteed a refund and that never happened. I ended up going to the Marriott and paid for another room because they refused to take care of the issue this absolutely disgusts me because I am also a returns member and I will never stay at another lq because of how terrible I was treated this time.

Okay place to stay, nothing fancy about it. Love that it has a Chili's and an Italian resturant across the parking lot. Also a gas station with a Dunkin Donuts inside is just across the street. The rooms are average, nothing special but not bad either. They do have microwaves, fridges and coffee makers in the room. WiFi is free in the rooms as well. My biggest gripe was getting out of the hotel and turning onto a very busy road which is a dreaded left turn without a traffic light which sucks. Keep in mind that you will most likely need to make a left turn every time if you stay here because the interstate is to the left so leave early to make it to appointments.
