Bottom of the barrel.

Pros: Free Internet
Cons: Poor breakfast, worst bed i've ever used.
The hallway smelled bad, for starters. The room smelled, but with a couple of store-bought air fresheners we tolerated it. The beds were the worst I've ever slept on, and for three nights I got poor sleep. This is called an efficiency; I'd like to know why. A coffee maker, a cheap little refrigerator, and a small microwave do not constitute a kitchen. The top of the fridge had something spilled on it, not cleaned. The bath was OK, but there were hair trimmings from a prior occupant on top of the faucet handles. The continental breakfast was a waste, so we went out every day. The TV carried a sparse few channels. The safety door lock on the inside of the door was shattered. When I looked online for a hotel there were two that were rated worse than this one. The sign out front and the voice at the front desk indicated this place is part of the Econolodge chain. The cleaning staff was friendly. We registered for three people, but were only provided two sets of towels initially.

Value-priced, no frills hotel, with great breakfast included.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
This value-priced hotel had a warm and friendly staff, clean and spacious room, and an excellent breakfast in a colorful, newly remodeled breakfast room. The location was great. While it is on a main road in Watertown, the hotel is set way back from the road so no road noise was heard. The several events we came to Watertown to attend were all within a few miles of the hotel. The hotel room itself was modestly but tastefully decorated. The beds were comfortable. The shower was warm. My husband and I had a good night's sleep! We would definitely stay there again.

Home away from Home

I was particularly amazed at the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff who all seemed to enjoy their jobs. This was particularly important, since we stayed a full week. The Efficiencies are located in the back, away from the street and did not have background noise, although we could hear television and alarm clock from next door. The continental breakfast was simple - just two cereals, doughnuts, bagels & toast, fruit and juice along with coffee and hot water. My only disappointment was the water pressure - very low. We did have a room at the end of the hotel and weren't sure if this was a water conserving measure or if it was merely our room. Showers were fine, but it took a very long time to fill the tub for a bath. The rooms were larger than the Econolodge, and were comfortable and clean. I will be staying there again.

Stay away

We stayed for 1 night, Christmas day, we were one of 4 cars in the parking lot, but had a room with an uneven floor, broken toilet paper holder, broken shower curtain holder, broken heater (though the desk clerk did come and get it to work). Paper thin pillows and a lumpy bed with sheets that would not stay on also add to the poor quality and upkeep of this place. There was also a can of furniture cleaner sitting on the TV, guess they hoped we could clean things up for them.... the desk clerk noticed it, but didnt take it with him. Even for the ~$* rate, I would rather have slept in my own car

Get what you pay for

For the price this hotel worked, hallways still smelled strongly of smoke, but room was a fine. To say the least the walls are thin and you hear things you'd prefer not to. Continental breakfast was better than expected.

Not very clean

I was in Watertown to visit Daughter returning from deployment. The Econo Lodge was not very clean or comfortable. The sheets did not look laundered from the last guests, the hall smelled like cigarettes and bleach. The heat was difficult to control (no temperature setting). My Daughter stayed the last night, forgot her cosmetic bag, which had her birthstone ring inside, called to ask them for the bag. When she retrieved the bag the ring was missing and half of her cosmetics. I will never stay there again, or recommend it to my friends or family.

Best Price in town

The room was perfect for the price. My son was happy with the wireless internet. Jumped on easily with his laptop. Room was pretty clean except for one bug in the bathroom. The $*/night sure beats the $*+ everywhere else. The night night before we stayed at the Days Inn right down the road. Not worth the extra $.
