Bedford Motel
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in Bedford
Reviewed 12 May 2012

Stayed here again, this time for 5 nights as I started a new job in the Newton, MA area and I needed someplace to stay before the move-in date of my apartment. Happy to report that the prices are still very low, and that the motel, while old, appears to be well-maintained. It's clean and quiet (no bedbugs, in my room at least), and has great water pressure in the shower. The owner, who works the desk, is nice and very accommodating.

Unlike the last time I stayed here 2.5 years ago, though, the wi-fi barely worked for me, and my cell phone had a hard time inside the room. I suspect that this might be concrete walls blocking the signals, but it was annoying to put up with. Also, while this motel might be great for leisure travel, I don't recommend commuting from it - I-95 traffic crawls along at a standstill pace for several miles south each morning. Of course, the nature of I-95 in the morning is hardly the fault of the hotel itself, but it is something to consider if staying here on business.

All in all, though, the motel provided me with a clean, comfortable, safe place to rest each night, which is just not something you'll find at any other place for this price in the Boston area.

Room Tip: If you plan on using your phone or the wi-fi, I suggest testing them out in your room as soon as you...

I booked a room here because Hotels.com made me believe it was near Boston. However, Boston is 40-minute drive from Bedford. Anyway, the staff was nice and very helpful. The room was clean (I inspected the bed and the bathroom as soon as I stepped into my room). I wasn't expecting to have a fridge and microwave in my room, but they were also clean. Only con about this motel is that it's not really close to Boston.

Great prices, but you may find insect bites on your body when you get home.

It's a motel (and an old one at that), but it had everything that was necessary. One note: "late check-in" here means that you'd better be there before 11:00 PM, because no one is at the office between 11:00 PM and 7:30 AM.

This is an old style one-story motel that is very well maintained and superbly clean. It has amenities you would not expect, like an in-room refrigerator and microwave oven. The management is very friendly and responsive. I stayed for six nights and would definitely stay here again if I came to the area.

This is a great place to stay. Very clean and the staff was nice. The beds were comfortable, the shower had water pressure, the entire area is quaint. As a bonus, there is an ice cream shop right next door. I will be staying here for all of my Boston trips.
I would like to point out that there is a Bedford HOTEL in the same area. That place seems to have gotten some negative reviews, but this is the motel, and should not be confused with the other.

The owner's are very kind & helpful. It is about 20 miles away from Airport but the cost is alot lower. They will also arrange for a car service that cost less than a cab for you to get to airport. clean & quite rooms.
