Best Western TLC Hotel

Reviewed 29 April 2012

The room was clean and a good size. The complimentary continental breakfast had a pretty good selection. The hotel itself including the lobby area was better than I expected for the price. The only thing I had a problem with were the sheets on the bed which seemed to be made of some kind of synthetic material which was not too comfortable.

Nice hotel for the money. Not too many things to do close by but if you have business in the area and are a penny pincher this is the place to go. Night shift staff was very accomodating and really went extra mile

The hotel is just OK: normal rooms, and a small swimming pool that can be nice for children. Breakfast is poor, and the gym is very small, with some out of order equipement. This hotel can be adequate if you are going to some of the nearby business centers, but is far from atractions. A taxi from Boston is about 50$. Not a good place to stay if you want to visit Boston and you don´t have a car.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms face the nearby highway, and are likely to be more noisy

We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed the cleanliness and facilities offered. The employees: Margot, Julie, HIlda, Tracy and Joe were all pleasent and positive, causing us to feel very welcome. This is a well arranged hotel with easy access to Boston and the surrounding area. The waffle machine was a treat and the breakfast had all the basics. We plan to return when we next come to Mass. from our home in Meteghan Centre, Nova Scotia. Jack and Danny

Better than some Best Western's but nothing special, saw a couple real potential hotels at the same intersection and will look into one of those if we are in the area again. Seemed clean enough, which is very important to us. But outdated, even old tv's. Stairs don't go down to first floor, they just take you outside. Easy area to take a jog in, but not much else that made it appealing to our family.

Very clean, helpful staff were responsive, adequate breakfast. Parking plentiful. Perfectly located for wide Boston and broad area college searching. Bathrooms definitely one person. Nice pool.

Room Tip: Must request non-smoking room.

The manager is unbelievably rube and unaccomodating. It is disturbing to see a person who works in hospitality argue with you about a problem with the room. Wow! I lost two nights of sleep because the beds are awful. I was considering sleeping on floor which may have provided me more rest. The heater works half the time, the wallpaper is peeling from the walls, the bathtub is stained with a black rim, the elevators are gross, the breakfast is sad... this place is a dump and Best Western should remove their name from this franchise. Bring your money elsewhere!

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else
