We chose this hotel for an overnight stay while visiting the mountain coaster at Jiminy Peak (which is 16 miles away). I had read some of the reviews and was a little concerned as to what it would be like. I have to say we were pleased with what we found.
The front desk staff were friendly and check in was quick. They even let us check in a half hour before check in time which was a nice surprise. Our room (2nd floor of the main building) was certainly of a nice Motel 6/Redroof style, so if you're expecting the Ritz you will be sadly disappointed. The room was clean, well prepared, and had a modern AC unit. The room also came with a microwave and small fridge. The furniture, albeit a little dated, was in good condition (see exception below).
There were two pools, one indoor and one outdoor. We didn't get a chance to use them, but they appeared nice.
Now for a few minor things: My son's bed squeeked everytime he moved, the tub faucet had a slow drip, and the sink faucet's cold water control worked to the reverse of a typical faucet. While I was able to pick up a wireless signal in our room, I think it was only because we were so close to the main lobby (the hotel's handbook states wireless available only in the lobby). There is only a dialup dataport in the room (people still use dialup?). Also, the hotel's lounge is only open on Friday and Saturday nights (perhaps summer hours?). Since it was Wednesday we were out of luck. All of that being said, none of these things negatively impacted our stay and we would gladly return.
The hotel is right off the main road so there are plenty of chain restaurants (Friendlys, Bennigans, etc) close by as well as a Price Chopper supermarket if you needed. Be careful when coming back at night though. There aren't any lights on the main sign so we almost drove right past the enterance.
