“A Real Downer”
Reviewed 4 September 2006

We stayed for two nights while attending a nearby wedding. Wow, was this place a downer. The living and dining room furnishings were quite unimpressive and lighting dingy. The inn had a variety of sleeping rooms so we can only speak for ours. It was large with decent closet space, but the bed was hard and lumpy. While the bathroom was fairly clean, it was a tiny space, with cheesy wallpaper, rust and messy caulk around the fixtures. The breakfast merely included single serving cereal boxes and store-bought bread and english muffins to put in a toaster that barely functioned. After two nights, the bill was $325! Instead of the "gracious manor" as advertised on their web site, we felt like we'd just stayed in my grandmother's broken down old house. With such a convenient location, this inn has much potential as a lovely B&B, but it needs substantial upgrades before we will return.

Reviewed 21 October 2005

A friend and I stayed at the Old Corner Inn during the month of October. This Inn has alot of potential, however we found it to be run down. The furniture in the lobby is worn and there was wall paper stuck to the fireplace, apparently the owner ran out of wall paper, or they didn't feel like finishing it. The rooms were clean but they were all lacking. With some TLC this place could be very nice. Some fresh paint, wall paper, bed linens would make a huge difference. The bathrooms were really bad, the wall paper was coming loose in one of them and instead of repairing it they put a row of tacks to hold it in place. The main doors were never locked, anyone could just walk in and roam around, the bedroom doors had locks, but it felt a little strange to think that anyone could just enter all hours of the day and night. Again, it was very clean, I just feel that with the amount of money they charge to stay there that they could at least do some minor repairs. We stayed 2 nights and our bill was over $300.00, definetly not worth the money. We will definetly return to Massachusetts, but will not stay at this Inn.
