We had a large group of family that needed to be in town for a funeral. There was a special for booking several rooms, so very affordable. Staff was friendly and accommodating of different arrival times and the need for a slightly delayed check out due to the funeral time.

Great place to spend a weekend with mixed aged children and grandson. We got there early and asked to leave our car in the lot. We were told our room was ready if we’d like to check in! The front desk was friendly and accommodating (DD forgot a tooth brush). The housekeeping

Overall this hotel and H&K Restaurant ( kind of expensive) are decent but are mainly for families with YOUNG kids - anyone older will be bored. Pool is filled with young kids. Waterfire Tavern Restaurant would be nicer if it was "adult" only but kids are allowed and it ruined

Fergi9922007, Thank you for this review. We do normally have adults only time at the Tavern after 7 pm. during school Vacations though it becomes a little harder and we allow our guest to bring their children since that is 90% of our guest in these time periods. We do cater to a wide variety of guest and do our best to satisfy all when we can. Thanks Joe

Dragonfly2006, I am sorry to read that you did not enjoy your stay with us. If you would like to call me to discuss your stay I would welcome that call and be happy to discuss your points with you. I am concerned on how you project the Lifeguard attending to the child though. All of our Lifeguards are fully trained and the guest safety is paramount to anything else they are doing. Not being up there at the time I can not speak to what should have happened but I have been told the guest in question were satisfied with the outcome. The lifeguard stated to me that it was the quickest way to get the little girl out of trouble. Thank you for your review Joe

Robrt, We do have a parking lot that is free to our guest. If it does fill up there is additional paid parking very close to the hotel. We hope to see you soon.

There is a small patio off the pool area. All of the pool is indoors. So if you don’t want to be right by the pool, you should be good.

in the next town over in Kingston MA there is a tennis club right off the highway that you may be able to rent indoor courts at.

"Best view is the front of the hotel facing East."
"Rooms in the front offer an opportunity for a water view..."
"Request room overlooking the front of the hotel, near the elevators."
"I did the family suite with jacuzzi tub and loved it!"
"End of the hallway is quieter. Close to the elevator could be noisy."
US$116 - US$270 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
