Hotel/Motel were in high demand....but we wanted something close to the function we were attending in Deerfield, MA. I found the motel ~ searching online ~ it was also listed in our paperwork for the local show we were a part of. There is not much listed online ~ so I thought I would add a review.
Arriving into Erving, MA ~ we were pleased with the location. Rural area ~ not much around ~ but there are a few towns and it suited our needs just fine. A drive thru Turner Falls Ma ~ what a great hometown feel! French King Gorge ~ as you cross the bridge approaching the motel....what a great view.
We pulled into the parking lot ~ all 4 of us were pretty pleased with
what we were seeing....so far!! Very small ~ 19 unit motel. The manager lives onsite and occupies one of them. Yes, there is an inground pool ~ was open ~ we didn't use it though... just so you know for those traveling with swimmers!
Check in was a little interesting....someone left with the key to our
room ~ so he had to go to Home Depot to get a new key made for us
....The room was average ~ it's not the Hampton Inn so you can't have high expectations. Clean/neat ~ recently renovated by appearance. The beds....not the greatest ~ but we weren't going to be
here forever! I think that's the one upgrade I would suggest for the owners....get some new beds!
It was $85.00 ~ summer season ~ seemed a little high to me. I think $75.00 would be more acceptable.
Restaurant is onsite ~ we didn't eat there ~ but it appeared to have some business thru the weekend.
We did happen upon Copper Angel Restaurant ~ now THAT is a must stop!! Excellent excellent!! Not to be missed! It's about 20 mins beyond the hotel ~ on 2a ~ just passed the actual town of Erving...
So ~ the French King ~ if you are not expecting Hampton Inn ~ its an acceptable weekend stay....
Family friendly ~ nothing scary noted about the area....
