Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beth57 Charged for parking???
Motel is great, staff and service was wonderful... BUT - I thought it was AWFUL that I was charged for parking after booking a stay there for 4 nights!! SERIOUSLY? I spent over $800 and you still have to charge me for parking? I was told the motel didn't own the parking garage, but I would think what money is made by the motel would more than cover the cost of parking. On top of that, I only parked in the garage 2 nights, but my bill put under my door on the morning we were checking out - I was charged for 3 nights of parking. Of course the front desk corrected that, but do other guests get over charged?

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kirusia super clean rooms and delicious breakfast,that's all.
I have to say,the room was super clean that i walked bare feet. It smelled sooo good in the room and towels were soft and fresh. Front desk staff wasn't what i expected. I wasn't expecting a red carpet but a smile would do. The breakfast downstairs at Martha's was delicious. Didn't have a chance to see the swimming pool. If you have issues about anything,talk to hotel manager Bridget,she is very nice! For the price that we paid,it's not worth it. Add a little extra and find a hotel downtown of Boston.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Heva Only if you are prepared for the noise
Hotel is very nice and great staff too. Highway noise is huge, but not louder than the very noisy air conditioning. If you can sleep through that, you'll be fine. Very convenient for the Boston suburbs, getting into town and visiting the outskirts. And with reasonable parking as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by momeg21 Love this place!
This property far exceeded my expectations. Easy parking, gorgeous room, and wonderful amenities all for a great price. Would definitely stay again as opposed to in the city!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LGBC Convenient and reasonable
Overall, our stay was enjoyable. The hotel is conveniently located above the Mass Pike in Newton so it was close to where we were going. The staff was very nice although we requested adjoining rooms in advance but we we not given that option upon arrival. Two things I would like to mention, there are no towel racks in the bathroom so there is no place to hang a towel to dry and limited counterspace. Also, we found goldfish on the floor just under the bedspread which was then obvious the cleaning crew did not vacuum.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Fenway1912 Great AND bad location, loud AC
You get what you pay for. I think this hotel provides great value for the money compared to other Boston area hotels. However, $ does not lie. I stayed at this hotel numerous times and it was always fine but I always stayed in winter.
The location is great, just on top of the I-90. Boston is literally a $3.50 bus ride away on the express bus or a 15 min ride on the I-90. With the location HOWEVER, comes the con. I stayed at the 11th floor and I could hear the cars, trucks and trains. Not a huge deal but if you're a really light sleeper, you'd hate it.
The AC however is really loud and in summer basically comes on and off very often. Without the AC it's really warm and muggy so, no choice. Perhaps, I should have worn my noise cancelling headphones just like sleeping in an airplane.
Other than that - it's great... parking is convenient and of great value. The little restaurant/café is decent too.
Would I stay here again? Maybe not in summer unless I learn to sleep with the noise.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Graduation201300000000 Worked well for Boston College graduation
All hotels in Boston raise prices during May graduations. This hotel was fine to get to Boston College graduation. Staff was helpful with bags. Downside- nothing around there so no where to eat or even get a coffee. Noisy since it is directly over the freeway. Did let us check in early due to being a Priority Club member.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BCPARENTS13 Great location comfort and value
This hotel is perfectly located for visiting Boston College and
was a great place to stay for graduation events. We could avoid traffic by taking the back roads to the college. The staff was very helpful and did all they could to make our stay comfortable. Yes, you can hear the traffic from the highway, but the air conditioner fan drowned most of the noise out. The hotel also offers a great BC rate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheMacNeils Great Stay! WIll recommened and return!
My wife and I booked two nights here for an impromptu mini vacation for our wedding anniversary. We were located close to the city center without paying high prices. Our parking was $9/night - VERY reasonable. The hotel was easy to find right off the turnpike - and contrary to others, the noise of the highway passing below us did not bother us at all. Staff was helpful when directing us to locations, and the bus route (the #504 took us right downtown - walking distance to the Aquarium, Fanueil Hall, and many other sights - same bus took us right back to the hotel - trip is about 15-20 minutes! $4.50/person) This hotel was clean, comfortable and had a great location! What more could we have needed? Oh, wifi..that was included too! And if you choose to stay here...try the Pizza place across the street, Max and Leo's - best pizza we've ever tried! We were sad they weren't open early enough to grab one to take home! Thanks again from two very happy Canadians! :)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by constantraveler very average
I stay a lot at CPs all over the US. Usually I am very happy. This was not great. No recognition of my Priority Club membership, even tho' it was right there on the reservation. Did not feel welcomed at all, rather a burden on reception. Room did not have the usual sleep amenities I find everywhere else [and love]. AC was noisy, but when turned off the traffic was noisier.

Staff are extremely pleasant and the rooms are comfortable and well maintained. Location was good for us; located near where we needed to be. Easy to access car, which is always a problem in the city.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dynasil Always a great experience
My visits to the Boston area are always much more enjoyable because I stay at the Crowne Plaza in Newton where the friendly staff makes a huge effort to make me feel at home.

Could not find my reservation even with my priority gold membership.
Too much noise from traffic.
Did not recognize me as a priority member and status.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chris2222 Great service and wonderful experience
Great location for us to visit Boston College. Great service and restaurant recommendations from front desk at check-in. We were on 10th floor, you can hear the highway but if you turn on the Heat or A/C with fan, this blocks traffic noise. Good workout facility which I used each morning. Great value for our purposes.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by marnie55 Comfortable bed, service was great
We stayed as a recommendation as part of a wedding function.
The staff was very good and answered all requests.
Prior to staying, we reviewed customer comments. We stayed an additional night prior and slept without any issues. The pool was cold the first night, but when identified, the management corrected the issue.
I would have liked an in room safe.
We ate lunch and dinner within walking distance, which was nice.
We will book again if we need to stay in the Boston area.

Flew into Boston for a conference in the suburbs and wanted to stay in a convenient location to both city and conference. This Crowne Plaza met all my criteria; convenient, easy access for commute, restaurants and downtown. In addition, it was elegant and peaceful. Stayed on top floor and watched sunset, which was an incredible bonus. Service was excellent; friendly and helpful. Now I'm looking for an excuse to return!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by C134 Great time
This is the hotel for you. I spent three wonderful nights here with my family and it was convienently located very close to Boston without being in the city directly. Easy access to and from the Mass. Turnpike. There are several restaurants that are located within walking distance if the prices at Martha's Bistro gets too steep. Overall, I had a great time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by leelee1015 Close to Boston College
I stayed at this hotel so I could be close to my sister, who attends Boston College. This hotel is right off the highway and about 5-7 minutes from Boston College. They have a full service bar and lounge! Across the street they have a pizzeria (which is excellent) and pub (which is great) and an Uno's (which was good). The staff was friendly, the rooms were spacious and clean! Parking is only $9/day and it's easy in and out. Will stay here when I go back to Boston!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Boston617 Great for insomniacs
A beautiful hotel with nice front desk staff. It's a shame I didn't find the earplugs until I was checking out. Built over the Mass Pike, the heavy traffic starts shortly after 6 am so I was woken up by that.
Once the traffic died down I started dozing off (I didn't have to get out of bed until 11) but the maid was banging on the door at 8:30 am to come in and clean!!! Check out is at 12. If I am only there overnight why are they so anxious to get in and clean? I'm not rushing to check out for their convenience.
Is a shame such a beautiful clean hotel is built with a highway under it.
I won't ever go back there because of the early morning noise and the staff banging on door so early.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rescigrj Enjoy This Hotel
This hotel has a great location (as I visit Boston College frequently). Very friendly staff, very comfortable rooms, free internet. The only negative I have is the noise created by the heating unit. They have ear plugs in the room which I thought were for the traffic down below (which doesn't bother me), but they may be needed when the heating fan turns on. Otherwise, great hotel.
