4/10 Fair

Needs renovation
Hotel entrance smelled unpleasant (musty smell), room was better but still a little musty. Furnishings were nice and room a good size, but some bathroom accessories rusty, fixture crooked, flacking paint, wall mirror a nice add-on but loose. Still, would have been satisfied if the hotel didn't smell so musty.

Needs updated and cleaned well
We stayed for three nights and were disappointed. It is an old hotel, so you are met with the "old" smell as soon as you open the lobby door. The tub had hair in it and the dust ruffle on the bed had what appeared to be a drink spilled all down it. The carpet was mismatched throughout the hotel and our room badly needed repainting. Area felt safe, ample parking, close to historical sites and their cute downtown area.

Roof leaked in bad storm, they rectified asap.
We stayed during really bad weather on the 4th floor. On the 2nd night of our stay, the ceiling was leaking water from the roof. They sent maintenance, and we were then moved to another room on the 4th floor, same side. No issues.

Great location, not so much spa (seasonal)
Great historic hotel in Plymouth. Extremely close to the Plimoth Grist Mill and the surrounding walking trails. On-site restaurants, plus several great options within a few blocks. Also not far from the Mayflower II and surrounding attractions. The building is well maintained for being so old and the brick floor in the lobby adds a lot of character. The quantity and placement of outlets in rooms is not what you would expect in a newer hotel, so you may need to charge your gadgets on the other side of the room or when you plan on not using them. One of the USB charging ports did not work, but other than that the outlets worked fine. The pool and spa had a closed for the season vibe. The spa had posted open hours but was not in fact open. Also, the hot tub had the knob removed to engage the jets and the slide was roped off. The sauna had not been in use so it would have taken quite a bit to warm up. If you plan to attend for the "spa" amenities, then keep in mind that these may be seasonal and check with the hotel before you book.

6/10 Good

Friendly staff but dark dingy room. Uncomfortable bedding, view of an alleyway with trash. No lifeguard for big part of the pool and the slide was closed for my kids in the morning. Mediocre stay but expected more and was a bit disappointing.

Snoring guest
I could hear the person snoring in the next room. Slept badly because of it. Better sound proofing is needed.

No quality
If it wasn't for the exceptional customer service from all the staff, I would have left the hotel. The hotel is very dated. The furniture (mattress, couch, chairs) in the suite was so uncomfortable neither myself or my boyfriend could relax and unwind after a long day out. There is absolutely NO water pressured so taking a shower was more of a task rather than a comfort. Our room was not cleaned, although the request was put in. I was told that microwaves are a fire hazard so they are not available in the rooms, only one shared by the entire hotel down in the lobby. Poor management. I expected a lot more for my money. Will not return.
