    « Perfect for our needs »

    Friendly attentive staff, and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Good shower!! The free breakfast was also a pleasant surprise. They offered, make your own waffles, eggs, bacon, sausage, cereal, breads, pastries,yogurt and fruit. Plus coffee, tea and juice. Great way to start the day.

    « Inconsistant »

    A/C worked poorly/could not open windows bed horribly stiff tv had 30ish channels, 1/3 out of order The bed had a bottom sheet, a super slim 'down imitation layer and then another sheet. Did they just not give us any sort of regular comforter? Cool staff, but inconsistency of rooms will lead me to avoid here in the future.

    « Better than expected! »

    I was apprehensive to try this chain, we typically stick to Marriott or Hilton hotels but, it was close and we needed to be somewhere very early with small kids and breakfast was included so, how bad could it be? After reserving another member of our team (youth sporting event 4 families) mentioned that breakfast didn't start until 7AM and we needed to leave by then. I called prepared to cancel but, they accommodated us and opened breakfast 30 minutes early:) Pleased before check in! The actual stay: The lobby was average not the best smell but, the front desk woman was friendly...a little chatty but super nice. Rooms were clean and a good size, the bathroom definitely could have been cleaned better. I wanted to give the kids a bath but, opted for shower based on level of cleanliness. It wasn't dirty really but not super clean either. There was a decent sized fridge and the pillows seemed close to brand new. Main room wa above average for cleanliness. I found the room to be quiet for a hotel too and we were close to the elevator which it typically louder. We also ate at the adjacent restaurant, definitely over priced for what it was and not really a kid friendly menu but, they didn't bat an eye at a few cocktails 3 appetizers and 12 shirley temples so, it wasn't uncomfortable either. Breakfast, which they opened early for us is where they overachieved in my opinion. Huge variety, hot eggs, bacon and a waffle station HUGE plus, an entire gluten free table. gluten free muffin, bread (separate toaster) gf cereals. As someone with Celiac, I usually grab a banana and coffee at hotel breakfasts but, I went all in. I really appreciated the early opening and everyone was pleasant:) I will not be afraid to try Best Westerns any more.

    « Don't judge this hotel by the cover »

    Lots of good things going on at this hotel, especially the staff! The outside appearance and some areas inside are rather run down looking or drab. The rooms themselves are spacious and nice. Everything worked well in room and fitness center. Rooms cleaned and beds made everyday.

    « Just Okay »

    We normally don't stay in Best Western but since this was a plus and we were in the area we thought we'd try it - it's tired and needs remodeling. We were in a handicap room near the elevator that was going to be repaired the next day so in the morning we carried all our things down the stairs and the elevator was still working. They had told us the night before to not to use the elevator in the morning. The room needed updated badly - patches on the wall from holes, old looking carpeting - how this is a plus I'll not know. The breakfast in the morning was okay. Sorry to rate it so mediocre but it is what it is.

    « Great hotel including breakfast »

    I found this hotel online, & it was great. The location was easy on & off 495, yet there was a cute little retail are nearby with lots of restaurant choices. There was also a paved walking/ running path nearby through the woods. The hotel rooms were large, clean, & comfortable. Breakfast was included, & there was a large selection of foods from yogurt, cereal, toast, bagels, muffins, eggs, make-your-own waffles, ... . The front desk people were friendly & helpful, especially Evan. We signed up for their rewards program & will look for these hotels when traveling.

    « Great Hotel »

    The beds are so comfortable and the room is spacious. We had a king-sized bed room with two comfortable chairs to view TV from. It had a balcony with two chairs outside. We also had a desk with chair.. The hotel was quiet and the breakfast room was spacious. We really thought the staff was helpful and nice--both lobby clerks and maids. It had a refrigerator, but no microwave--in the room. The breakfast was better than most. We enjoyed our stay.

    « Great deal - good room »

    I used a coupon for a great rate on this hotel, and I am so glad we stayed there! We were there for 2 nights, and they upgraded us from what the coupon listed to make sure we were comfortable (2 parents, 1 child). The hotel was clean, the staff were great.

    « Really more like a 2.5 for me »

    A few steps above a Motel 6 or Econo Lodge. If you pay about $80 a night (with a bidding site) you feel OK about this purchase. If you end up paying closer to $126 you will feel ripped off. Once you leave the lobby & dining area much of it seems worn out, faded. Odd rug odors seemed to permeate different floors. But first the basics: Comfortable bed, quiet AC, large rooms, EXCELLENT FRONT DESK SERVICE, nice continental breakfast with hot items. Small fitness center, computer are for business. I did not feel nervous about parking our car out front. The location isnt bad for getting in to Boston or Worcester, about 45 minutes. Did not check out the pool since it was Sept. Now the negatives: Stains on our bedding, places where things were removed from the walls had wholes and crumbles, the halls look like institutional dorms from 1950, hair left in our shower. Not the hotels fault, but I feel compelled to advise people: 1.Numerous times did we see guys walking around covered in tatoos with no shirts on, sometimes smoking outside the hotel. 2. Someone on our floor was smoking pot and the smell drifted under everyone's door. 3. Someone on our floor had a little party with middle eastern music and spicy food. I grew up near NYC so I'm well accustomed to this. I don't mind it if I'm throwing the shin-ding, but wouldnt do that at 1 am when others are trying to sleep in a hotel. So to wrap up, I guess this place is OK for a quick stay on a budget. But keep in mind that either the location, or price, seemed to attract a certain clientele the night we were there. Felt a bit shady. It's not really the hotels fault, so I bumped this up a notch to 3 stars. We probably will not stay there again. Also, they are undergoing renovations so I think improvements are on the way.

    « Over night stop while traveling »

    My husband and I stopped over night while traveling back from Maine. Gentleman that helped me at check in was very nice and informative. Room was the standard off the highway hotel pretty much no frills. They did offer free breakfast in morning did not have but dinning area very clean and looked like a decent assortment of stuff for a free breakfast.

    « Comfortable and well appointed hotel. »

    We stayed here for one night and I would be happy to return. It is comfortable, modern, well appointed and has helpful and friendly staff. The bed is very comfortable and like everyone, a hot shower is important. I would recommend this hotel.

    « should be rated much lower »

    The elevator didn't work, the room smelled like smoke, no HBO or premium channels, slow wifi, loud fan in bathroom, very outdated bathroom, noise from parking lot all night,and the bed was uncomfortable .However,the staff was friendly and the breakfast was good with plenty of room.

    « Halfway to maine point from philly »

    « very good all-around experience »

    recently stayed overnight at this hotel, as I had a family party in nearby Tyngsboro. It's in a perfect location, right off I-495, and a short drive to the Lowell train station. No real complaints with this hotel. I do have to give a shout-out to Jasmine (?) who checked me in. I called the hotel the night before to request an early check-in. I arrived at the time I mentioned, and the check-in went smoothly. Also, as I left the hotel to head to the party, Jasmine asked if everything was ok with the room. I can't recall ever being asked at any other hotel, if everything was ok with the room. I would definitely stay at this hotel again!

    « Convenient Stop near Rt 495 »

    On our way from NJ to Maine to vacation we now stop overnight at the Best Western in Chelmsford. We travel on a Friday and can just make it to Chelmsford before the traffic becomes impossible. We don't travel all the way up on a Saturday because then the traffic is guaranteed to be impossible). It is a lovely stop with restaurants, shopping and movies nearby. The room was clean and very comfortable and the free breakfast was ample and diverse. This was our second stop there and we plan to stop there next year.

    « Great Stay »

    I would recommend anybody to stay at this hotel. It was clean, even with a small remodel happening. Staff could not do enough to be helpful. The desk person remembered our name from a prior stay about a month ago. They were very helpful with information about amenities in the area as well as directions.

    « Awesome place to stay »

    I have been at several Best Western Hotels recently and this hotel exceeded my expectations. I decidedly to go there because of the outdoor pool. I went to this location while my fiancé was working and then he would stay after work. My main focus was for relaxation. The only thing I would like to mention is- I would like a Jacuzzi outside near the pool.

    « Excellent »

    Very nice place to spend the night. It was very clean. The elevator was fast enough. Breakfast had a wide range to choose from-- which included a gluten-free bar. I thought that definitely was a "Plus" for many who need that.

    « Last Minute Decision »

    Worth it without any regrets. Coming back from a concert and still had a 30 minute drive. Was tired and decided to spend the night. Great decision and experience. The location was conveniently located right off the highway.

    The motel is conveniently located and the room includes a balcony. Very clean and comfortable. There is a restaurant within walking distance. Location is just off I-495 in Chelmsford. A member of the staff at this BW went out of her way to make my stay enjoyable.

    « Great last-minute pick! »

    Two days ago,my husband, son and I stopped in looking for vacancy about half-way home.We had a coupon from the discount book on the Pike. We were offered a better room at a nominal extra cost and we were very happy with it. Maria was very sweet, and even called to check on our satisfaction with the room. The lifeguard was very accommodating with our son, having only a few minutes to swim before closing. The next morning, the breakfast was wonderful. I appreciated the gluten-free options (on a separate table, no less!) I thanked the manager (Debbie?) for that, as some places do not have many choices for us celiacs. Overall, great stay for tired travelers!

    « Our stay at Chelmsford »

    Very friendly and helpful staff. The hotel was very clean, the room was very nice with comfortable pillows and beds and a great shower. We enjoyed the breakfast with lots of hot and cold options. The waffles were delicious! We definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

    « Good hitel »

    We stayed 6 nights in room 345. Room was large with a balcony. Staff were very friendly and helpful. If you are wanting to head downtown into Boston leave early as traffic into the city is horrendous. We ended up leaving the hotel just after 6am in order to get a good run into town. Breakfast has a selection of hot/cold foods - adequate for our needs. For the price we could not have asked for anything more

    « Best Western Plus, Chelmsford, MA »

    We had two different rooms over a short period of time and both rooms were excellent. The first had outstanding features, the second room had normal features but was still better than expected. The staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were good.

    « A classy three-night stay! »

    We stayed at BW Chemlsforf for three night with our grand son who was atending a Hockey Showcase at UMass. Our stay was pleasant in all aspects = room, breakfast, wifi, tv, ... and especially staf members. Price of room was very reasonable. BW is usually our hotel preference and, at Chemlsford were were not decived. If ever again in the area, we will stay there again. Special mention: a royal treament during our 3-day stay in Lowell, it was Folk Festival at Lowell weekend. Being a Cajun, bluegrass and fiddlers fans, we were just thrilled. Super weekend. Returning for sure. Denis & Monique Rockland ON Canada

    « Ok for a one night stay »

    Stayed here on our way home to Pennsylvania from Maine. It was fine for a one night stay. Breakfast was great-lots of options! Beds were comfy but there were ants in the bathroom and the wifi was spotty. Our room was not ready for us at 3:30 when check in is at 3:00. That was a bit frustrating. The pool was very nice and staff was friendly.

    « Needed a Room »

    Our daughter was delivering our first granddaughter and we needed a place to stay the night. This hotel was the only one with a room in a 25 mile radius (except for one very overpriced Comfort Inn). We we accommodated at 4 in the AM and the accommodations were very comfortable.

    « worth the money »

    It was worth the money we paid. i would stay there again. Located close to many restaurants and shopping places and right off the highway. Hotel staff was helpful and friendly. Pool was clean and maintained.

    « NO AC in the corridors and elevator »

    We stayed here on a day that reached into the mid to high 90s for temps. While that is unusual for this part of the country, it still routinely gets up into the 80s at this time of year. What a shock to realize that the extremely slow elevator and the corridors above the first floor (the hotel has 5 total) were not air conditioned. I could not imagine the poor housekeeping staff working in those conditions. The floor in our room appeared to have been vacuumed in a rush based on the pretzel crumbs between the wall and the bed and the buildup of detritus (grass pieces, crumbs, dust) in the harder to access areas. The bathroom floor looked like it had been mopped without being swept first based on the large quantity of long black hair stuck to it. I let the front desk know and they sent someone up to take care of it while we were out but I was surprised to encounter that at a BW PLUS. So not my best experience at a BW but it wouldn't keep me from giving them another shot. Maybe not at the height of summer though.

    « Best Western »

    Fine for our trip, but nothing exceptional about the hotel. Our hot water was turned off for a day and a half. The hot and cold were also switched in the bathroom. The breakfast was a large display, although few healthy options. The location was nice and provided easy access to the highway. Overall, not great, but fine for a place to sleep.

    « Older Hotel--but outstanding stay »

    Don't be misled by the 5-story brick building you spot when entering the parking lot of this Best Western. It is always clean, well kept up, and has staff that is anxious to server their customers! We've stayed here many times, and each time are pleased. If a problem is encountered, it is remedied quickly.

    « Employees excellent »

    Every employee I came in contact with was beyond helpful and sincerely nice!! I received a call prior to our teams arrival asking if we needed breakfast at a certain time as our team was playing early both Saturday and Sunday. They switched the normal opening of breakfast from 7am to 6am to accommodate our team and their families. So very helpful and appreciated!!

    « Nice »

    We spent the night at this hotel while we were passing through. It was nice. Basic and clean. The staff was exceptionally friendly and gracious. The lobby is being redecorated so there was not much there, and there was a strong odor of paint and new carpet, but the odor did not affect the guest room. I imagine this will only last until the project is done, no big deal. The bathroom in our room needed some upgrades. It was clean, but definitely older. The sink faucet dripped, and it was difficult to control temperature. Some of the wallpaper was peeling. But, again, it was very clean. The TV is through DirectTV, and it was a somewhat stormy night, so the reception was terrible, and about 6 channels were out entirely. When we woke in the morning all of the channels came in and were very clear. The bed was very comfortable. We had dinner and drinks at Moonbeams, across the parking lot. Really very very convenient, tasty food, and a nice bar. This is a decent, clean, friendly hotel.

    2
    « Just Okay »

    This Best Western hotel seems old and dated. Even though they say they have updated the rooms the mismatched light switches and rusty screws in the bathtub make me believe otherwise. The fan comes on in the bathroom even if you only want light since there is only one ugly brown switch. it is loud and prevented me from listening to the morning news as i got ready. The one elevator is terrible slow. The lobby was being painted and roped off with it seemingly no one working on it the entire 5 days I stayed.

    « nice place »

    We would hit this place again, it was well located and everything was perfect, the breakfast place was just complete and good quality, fresh and the people staff are very kind and willing to help you with any of your needs

    « Great Location with Friendly Staff »

    We stayed for a conference in Lowell. Great location with an easy commute to UMass Lowell. Staff was super friendly and offered directions and ideas for our free time. The ease of the commute to the Train Station for a relaxing trip into to Boston is Great! If we find ourselves again here we will most certainly be laying our heads to rest here again.

    « A pleasant and comfortable stay »

    We stayed only one night here during a weekend road trip that included a visit to historic Lowell. This hotel is just a short drive from Lowell. We very much enjoyed our stay. The front desk staff was extremely personable and the young man who checked us in also gave us a phone call to make sure everything was okay. I really appreciate that kind of service! We had a basic double room with two beds. Although the decor seems a little tired, the room was extremely clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. A small refrigerator and a Keurig coffeemaker were in the room. The television channels are not plentiful , but the TV reception was good. There is an outdoor pool that closed early, at 7pm, so we did not get to use it. Although we were given access to the free wifi, the service did not work when I signed on. It was not a big deal for us, but it could be for others. I would have mentioned it to the staff if it had been an issue for me. Breakfast is included in a lovely breakfast room, and the offerings are basic, but adequate, and include several gluten-free choices. There is free parking for hotel guests. The lobby area is currently under renovation, and I hope there are plans to renovate the rooms as well. I would love to give this hotel five stars across the board; I absolutely give it five stars for service, comfort, cleanliness, and value.

    « Gracious and Comfortable »

    As we learned from 2 other hotels, not only was the green book discount not usuable, but the hotels were full. There was no room in the Inn. As panic began to set in, my wife began to call hotels on the way. Evan Leduc was on the front desk when she called THE BEST WESTERN PLUS CHELMSFORD INN in Mass. Evan told us they wern't taking the green book rate but gave us a great AAA rate. When we arrive 30 minutes later he recognized my wife's voice from the phone and welcomed us. We had a well appointed king size bed and several chairs. The lighting in the room was great. Most have lower wattage bulbs. The lamps all had 2 outlets in the base so phone charging was easy. The desk was away from the AC so that you could sit at the desk and not freeze. The shower was excellent and maintained the same temperature. The bed was VERY COMFORTABLE. Some people have complained about a bare bones free continental breakfast. You are wrong. I have rated many breakfasts. This one was great. I watched the 13 year old boy make 6 pancakes for his family. Therewas a larger than usual selection of cereals. The blueberry muffins were fresh. There were eggs and bacon, hot packet of cereal. There were fruit, bagals, danish,. There were several different kinds of coffee. The room was divided up in stations all around so there were never long lines. YES, I ENJOYED MY STAY. If I can arrange it we will stay here again next week on our way home from Maine.. Thank you for a great stay

    « Surprisingly Great Stay »

    We stayed here while attending a UMASS Lowell graduation. When we booked it was for distance to the graduation with low expectations. When we got our room it was standard. Comfortable queen size bed, cute little "lounge" area and a nice sized bathroom. Everything was clean and the balcony overlooked the back of the hotel... which we were shocked! They have a huge fenced in pool and large "backyard" area. Nicely kept grounds. The offer free breakfast which included a make you own waffle station with all the fixins, a build your own breakfast sandwich station, an oatmeal station and cereal options. Coffee and juices as well as pastries were also available. The front desk was helpful and overall we had a great stay!

    « Avoid it. There are many hotels in the area. »

    My bill was wrong. It was a simple fix. It wasn't even a matter of the charges. After 3 requests and no response, I realized they simply do NOT care. The coffee maker didn't work and they had no solution for that.

    « No cleanliness in the room »

    « Lovely and safe »

    We had stayed many times in the area of this hotel, but had stayed at the dirty Radisson because the Best Western did not look appealing from the outside. We took a chance and were given a room on the fourth floor of the newer section and were very, very pleased with the comfort, cleanliness, odor of the room and floor, and the friendliness of the staff. Will definately stay again.

    « Plus Hotel !! »

    This hotel is deserving of the PLUS. The staff is so friendly that I feel like I've known them for years. When walking through the lobby to breakfast, they used my name to ask how my room was last night - amazing. My room was huge with a livingroom area with a full sofa and a chair and was very clean. Though the pool in the backyard wasn't open yet, it crystal clear and the grass in the backyard looks like a golf course. I would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

    The breakfast buffet was the best! You could get anything you wanted - bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, hard boiled eggs, all kinds of fruit and fruit toppings, all kinds of breads and pastries, waffles, cereal, yogurt. Also places to hang out in upholstered chairs in the hallway. Very helpful staff. Would definitely go back here!

    This hotel was nice, a little older but clean and nice. The staff was very courteous and friendly. The hotel is a nice long ways away from the happenings in Boston(DOWNTOWN). My commute daily was 30-45 minutes depending on traffic but it was very quiet. The room was quite big with a sit out balcony. The furniture in the room was older. The hotel also comes with a microwave and fridge. Not bad though. Very close to Walmart and shopping areas.

    The room was clean and the bed comfortable, but, the first night no shampoo in the bathroom (it had two conditioners). It was alright though, I always carry my own as a back up. The complimentary breakfast had those horrible eggs wrapped around velvetta. One night would have been fine, but, we were to stay in the area for six nights. Every time we used a cup they would take away the next day, without replacing it. Finally had to go the front desk and ask for more. Chelmsford was established in 1655, lots of history. But, the hotel didn't even have a city map (first hotel I've been to that didn't.). No menu of TV programs (I guess they got the cheapest cable contract they could). Six nights and every night had a different rate, $108 to $135 plus taxes. $108 on the weekend and the higher rates during the week (I guess they wanted to make up for lower occupancy during the week). Don't get a room that adjoins another, you can hear every word and sound in the next room through the loose fitting door.

    « NICE »

    What a nice hotel this is... When we arrived after a long day of traveling, the young man at the front desk was so friendly and helpful. He had wonderful suggestions to eat as we were hungry yet tired and didn't want to drive any further. He even called us once we got to our room to make sure we were all set. The breakfast in the morning was terrific with so many choices. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

    « Needs updating »

    The room was clean, but the bathroom was in desparate need of updating. Shower water was impossible to regulate. Lighting was poor. Our room was very close to highway, and the windows were not sound insulating.

    Friendly staff. Clean room. Awesome bed. Nice room. Now, I don't have time to write a review that reaches 200 characters to satisfy TripAdvisor, so I will just type away with a bunch of mumble jumble and repeat that this hotel was very comfortable, that Evan is very good at customer service, that my special friend thought the bed was "out of this world," the elevator felt safe, the shower was hot, and the television worked perfectly.

    « Amazing Staff »

    While staying at this hotel, we had an unexpected snow storm and I was not prepared with gloves or boots. Dreading to go out that morning, I was pleasantly surprised to see that not only were the sidewalks cleared to the pavement, the maintenance staff had cleared my car !!!!

    « Home Away From Home »

    I travel to Chelmsford on a regular basis and have stayed at a number of hotels in the area and always come back to the Best Western. The staff at the front desk is always friendly and attentative. The rooms are clean and I all the new changes in the rooms are terrific. They recently changed their breakfast room to a much larger room which is much more comfortable. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

    « Blown away! »

    I had no expectations coming here, but was beyond happy with the place. Front desk clerk kept apologizing when I asked her to change our room because it was dirty. I kept reassuring her that it wasn't her fault. The room we switched to was clean and comfortable with a coffee maker, micro, and fridge. Not noisy at all. Breakfast was amazing. Debbie pointed out the g/f table, and the offerings were plentiful and delicious. Price is right.

    « Very nice place for a short stay. »

    I stayed for a week from 11-jul-15 till 16-jul-15. Had to opt for this place at the last moment as i could not get a reservation at the Marriott. There was no big expectations for this place, but i was not disappointed at all. Nice clean and spacious rooms. The breakfast spread at the restaurant was very good and wholesome. The staff at the reception was very polite. Overall a very good place if looking out for a economic hotel and a short stay for business.

    « GREAT LOCATION »

    What a great location this hotel is !!! We were visiting family near Boston but didn't want to pay the high rates they charge in the city so we decided to give this place a try. It is really easy to get on and off the highway. The rooms were clean and very big..... lots of space. The breakfast in the morning was in the huge room and had eggs, bacon and waffle that were delicious. The front desk staff was very friendly and told us about the train that is only 2 miles away and goes into the city. Will definitely stay here again.

    great location just off of the interstate, close to restaurants, etc. All of the staff that we spoke to were friendly. Room was clean, bed was comfortable and pillows were great. There was a hot and cold breakfast served which was great. Overall, we would stay at this Inn again if we were traveling this way.

    « Best-Best Western »

    This is the best - Best Western we've stayed at !!! We are seniors and do a lot of traveling and have stayed with many different hotel brands and like most of them. This Best Western was exceptional. The staff at the front desk was very friendly. The room is very spacious and clean. They told me I was in one of their newly renovated rooms and it was great ! They were also doing the hallway wallpaper on another floor. The breakfast room was huge with lots of choices. There is a restaurant right beside the property that had excellent food. We would highly recommend this place.

    « First time we have ever been disappointed by a Best Western »

    The place is not bad looking but there was what looked like dried blood running down the molding and door in the bathroom behind the door and some sort of red thing about 2" long on the floor behind the bathroom door. Yuck!! The bed was hard. Normally 3 star AAA rooms have better beds than this. It looked clean but the stains were just yucky. When we checked out there was a woman standing at the counter who was in what looked like a uniform for someone working in housekeeping. When I started to tell the nice woman at the at the front desk about the blood stains the woman in the uniform turned her back on me and stood there. Stay off the 5th floor. We thought we were near a busy highway but when we called down to the front desk we were told it was the furnaces on the roof. They offered to move us down but we were in pjs and tired. The breakfast "pastries"were stale. The waffle maker was all set up but would not work. They said they had had an electrician working for some time now to get the electrical problem fixed so it would work but they could net get it to run on the circuit it was on. It was a large room with countertops in 3 separate places. Maybe they should have tried it across the room on another plug. The young man who made our reservations checked us in was great. Disappointing location I have photos but do not know how to move them from my phone to this listing.

    Clean, comfortable, fair price and pleasant staff. Breakfast was very good with lots of choices. Check-in and check-out was very easy. Would stay again if and when I am in the area again! :) Access from the thruway was easy and accessible.

    « Elevator out At Christmas »

    Room was comfortable. King bed was great for 5 nights. 2 chairs, for extra sitting area. room got a bit stuffy, but not too bad for sleeping. Problem - toilet was SO loud when flushing, I asked my hubby to please keep the door closed until it finished filling,especially in the middle of the night. Reminded us of a toilet in the school gym. Elevator was out for 4 weeks, mid Dec to mid Jan. They wanted to give us a room on the 3rd floor. Since I made my reservation way back on Oct 9th, I refused, stating that all the first floor rooms could not be filled with people who booked before me. We were not even offered help to bring our luggage up the stairs, so I refused 3rd floor and got a first floor. So much better. Awesome location to get right on 495. Perfect for us to get to Tewksbury and Maynard. Breakfast was good. Yogurt, egg with cheese, bacon or sausage, small already made waffles, dried cereal, oranges, variety of bagels, danish and muffins. We stayed in the room till noon on Christmas day, so we never got the room cleaned. Had to go get new towels at the front desk, they delivered they to our room. We will stay again, it was a great stay.

    « When on holiday for a holiday »

    We stayed at this hotel for Thanksgiving. The accommodations were first rate but it was the staff that was memorable. Early in the morning; late at night they truly seemed pleased to see you and eager to help. They made the trip even more celebratory.

    « Certainly okay. »

    Check-in was efficient and friendly, and the staff was uniformly pleasant during our 3 day stay. Room was clean - but we had to ask, at about 4:00 in the afternoon, for it to be cleaned for the day. A communication mistake, we were told. Oddly enough, the hair dryer would only blow cold air. I've never had that issue before, and I've been intimate with blow dryers for more years than I'd like to count. Breakfast: not imaginative, and for the most part not tasty. Cold cereal was fine. Coffee was good. Sweet rolls tasted packaged, and I did not taste the egg patties...they looked unappetizing. As I said, staff was always helpful.

    I stayed at the Best Western Plus in Chelmsford,MA and we had roaches in our room. It was nasty. My son killed a huge one in the bathroom the first night we were here, we thought it was an isolated incident, but not even 2 days later I had a drink on the night stand at night and found 2 baby ones in my drink within 10 min of me pouring it. My family and I are very disappointed and grossed out.

    « Pass this one up! »

    This is one you can avoid. The longest check in process I have ever had. And not only that but unfriendly to boot! The room was unclean...trash in the corner, hairs on the bathroom floor. And also in bad need of some repairs ...the cabinet door was hanging on by one broken hinge, wall paper was peeling. This place is in bad need of updating and some good care.

    « Can you say Horrible? »

    This hotel was a nightmare. I'm giving it a 2 star simply because the room was clean and the bed fairly comfortable. Everything else was horrible. The hotel is dark and stark and looks like something from the 50's. The elevator was tiny and had no AC , which was also true of the hallways. This was problematic due to the hot summer temps. The room AC unit was very old and clanky and cycled every 5-10 minutes, which woke me up frequently during the night. The toilet seat was very close to the floor and the seat was loose. There was a tiny cheap fridge in the room and food fell out whenever the door was opened. One of our bath towels was filthy when we checked in, and when I attempted to get a replacement, was given a tiny towel since they said they were out of fresh towels. The wifi continually kicked us off our devices and we eventually had to stop using them. After we checked in, we learned that the hotel is a Section 8 hotel, which accepts low income housing in certain situations. A workman not affiliated with the hotel told us that" this property is always crazy." Breakfast was terrible, and there were old black bananas offered. AAA rates this hotel 3* ----- how is that possible? We couldn't wait to check out!

    « A great place to stay »

    On our way back South for the winter and stayed in Chelmsford, MA again. We usually stay at the Best Western and thought about trying a different hotel in the area but why change something that is good...it was the right decision. Everytime we stay here the staff is fantastic and the rooms are clean and comfortable. We love the restaurant beside the hotel, Moonstones, and enjoy not having to drive anywhere to get a great meal after a long day of traveling. The manager told us about a lot of changes coming soon ... we look forward to seeing them when we come back for the holidays.

    We stayed at this Best Western Plus in Chelmsford, MA for 6 nights for family gathering and 50th school reunion. We found it to be extremely clean and the staff was most helpful in answering questions concerning restaurants, etc. It is close enough to drive into Boston for sightseeing as well as Lowell. Would stay again.

I look forward to my stay & hope I get to meet laura in person during my stay.

    « Nice hotel »

    The hotel staff was nice and the room was clean and comfortable. Hotel was a much cheaper option than the Best Western in Concord while only being about 30 minutes away from Concord and Walden Pond. The only thing I was dissatisfied with was the unreliable wi-fi.

    « Will visit again!! »

    The facade of this hotel does not do the inside justice. The room was wonderful, exceptionally clean and roomy. The next time we visit we will request a balcony room. It would have been lovely to sit out in the sun. The halls are spacious, lobby is lovely and the staff were very helpful. My only negative comment would be the size of the breakfast room. There was enough room when we went to breakfast because we were extremely early but it is tiny and if it had been full it would have been uncomfortable. A great continental breakfast!

    « It was a nice stay, but my wife was miffed. »

    We were on a road trip and picked up one of those coupon books from the highway rest areas. We struck out at the first coupon we picked and tried this hotel. We asked if the rate was still available and were told that it was not, but that for $10 we could "upgrade" to a room with 2 full beds. We were tired and accepted the room, but my wife became miffed as going from queen beds to full is by no means an upgrade. She complained to the day clerk the next day to no avail. That being said, the room was nice enough but the full bed did cramp our sleep somewhat. I guess it's been a while since we slept on a full size bed. Breakfast was very good with a good assortment of hot and cold foods. The only other snag we had was that we had left home without my BW rewards card and at check in, I asked if he could look that up. He said he would and add our stay to our account, but that never happened. I'm having to appeal with the rewards site.

    « Cigarette smoke-filled room in a "nonsmoking" hotel! »

    My room smelled like cigarette smoke, especially in the bathroom. A very unpleasant experience to deal with after committing to this hotel for a two-day in-room business planning session. I called for help and the front desk person sounded annoyed like this happens all the time. Also, the breakfast was TERRIBLE. Bacon was like jerky, eggs were dry.

    « Awful Customer Service »

    I booked this hotel through hotels.com and for some reason, google filled in the dates incorrectly. I called the hotel directly and changed the date, no problem. I called back two days later to confirm the new date, and I was all set. Until I arrived there at 11pm and was "greeted" with awful service. Tina, at the front desk, told me there was a problem with the reservation because even though the front desk confirmed my date change, they couldn't really change the date through their system, I had to call hotels.com directly. As a result, my reservation was cancelled. I asked her why she didn't call me if there was a problem and she said, "That's not my job!" I said, "Taking care of my reservation is exactly your job, if you knew there was a problem, you should have called me. Why didn't you just call?" Then she told me, "I already gave you an answer" and walked away. The hotel was sold out, so at 11pm, me and my pregnant wife were forced to fend for ourselves, because Tina was unable to tell me where another hotel was. -She should have called me directly -She should have held a room and solved the booking issue later -She could have had another option for us to stay in realizing she messed up our reservation. To make it worse, it took the hotel over a week (and 3 phone calls) to credit my account.

    The hotel was exactly as expected and the room and facilities were very clean. The restaurant next door, Moonstones was excellent and easy to walk to in a brightly lit parking lot. I find it important while traveling to have dining options very close to my stay so i do not have to travel strange roads at night.
