We stayed 2 nights in a lodge room up on the hill. Convenient for attending wedding on the lawn but definitely NOT a great hotel unless your expectations are in line with majority of reviews. The rooms are very outdated, worn and need overhaul desperately. The staff were GREAT and seem devoted to their jobs. They are eager to please...

This hotel has been a favorite stop for us for years as we travel from Maryland to Maine. We like the pub especially in the winter and fall next to the fire place. The bakery is great- have a sticky bun you will come back. Stay in the inn part, not the lodge. The inn is worn and quaint, but...

The experience at the Publick House Historic Inn reminded me that you get what you pay for. I booked a room for one night at a VERY good rate. When I arrived I realized that the room was not actually in the Inn but in one of the building separate from the Inn. I imagine the buildings were built in...

Stayed two nights in the lodge for a friend's wedding. Room was spacious - right near the pool. The walk up the hill can be a bit much for older guests - I'd recommend staying in the inn rather than the lodge, or you could always jump in your car and drive the 45 seconds up/down the hill to get...

The Queen Bee and I spent some time in Sturbridge for a weekend. After going to an outdoor concert while drinking micro-brews, we wisely decided to stay another night. We looked online and grabbed a room at the famous Publick House in Sturbridge center for $89. It was a great move and we even stayed in separate queen beds and...

We stayed here while attending Brimfield Antique show and the place was just fine. We had a nice size room with 2 queen beds that were very comfortable. The pillows on the beds were very firm just the way we like them so this was a plus for us. Our room had a view of the swimming pool with a...

The rooms are comfortable and decorated well, clean and you can find coupons! There is a nice shop next door and the bakery has wonderful treats to take to your room or out sightseeing. Old Sturbridge Village is not far and I believe you get a discount coupon for staying at the Public House. IT is a beautiful place to...

My wife and I travelled to Sturbridge MA for our joint birthdays and I was in a kind of historical mood. We travelled first to Westville Recreation area for a picnic lunch and reveled in the quiet and beauty of the lake formed by the Westville Dam. Than having driven around Sturbridge we checked into the Publick House Historic Inn....

My friend and I found this nice hotel via hotel coupon book. The setting was more for vacationers and people looking for historical settings, but even with our pickup truck and trailer, we were treated very well. The room was very nice and clean; no issues other than narrow driveways. Would go there again if in that area

Giving the motor lodge 2 star rating is generous. This "quaint" Inn is very old but the motor lodge section is very neglected. They are in process it seems with building another section to the original inn. That would certainly be a bonus but in the meantime guests are stuck in an old lodge. Not good. We would have left...
