We stayed at this motel for one night on our way from New York to Boston via Salem. We booked this motel at hotels.com and were attracted by the price. Honestly, I wouldn't expect anything good judging by its rating and reviews. However, I was really surprised with what I got.
We arrived late, around 11pm. The manager was really pleasant and helpful, told us everything we needed to know and gave us the Wi-Fi password. He also offered us to get free coffee in the lobby on the checkout. The front desk works limited hours; self checkout applies before 7am. Parking is right in front of the door.
The location is very convenient. It is not far from Burlington mall and a lot of other amenities, but at night the place is really quite once you approach the rooms. We enjoyed our sleeping experience there. Beds are really comfortable, by the way.
We got the room #12 (double, non-smoking). I was really surprised that the standard room was equipped as the one some motels would call "premium" (iron/ironing board, microwave, minifridge, small bathtub, hair dryer, however the latter did not work). Wi-Fi signal was steady and strong, and it is protected by a password for motel guests. Rooms look exactly like in the official pictures. On the downside, it wouldn't hurt to renovate rooms: carpet, armchairs, bed covers looked old and dusty, furniture and TV are outdated, the AC is old and noisy (but efficient), some outlets are out of order. The room key is not a card, it is really a key, which was a bit quaint for me.
I found the quality / price ratio to be completely satisfying. If I get a chance to visit Boston again, I would stay here.
