rodrigt501's "review" of the late, thankfully gone 'Battle Green Inn' is an absolute joke, and completely false. It was composed by Renee Reynolds who worked for 'The Battle Green Inn' which was actually a flophouse full of sketchy characters and displaced families.
"Ms" Reynolds is quite a character herself. Imagine a wardrobe consisting of late 1987 K-Mart sales pant suits, cheaply dyed hair in a beehive hairdo. She looks like a character from a David Lynch film, or a refugee from a Carol Burnett skit, or Mrs Roper from 'Three's Company' gone to seed.
There is no way anyone would find this homely old miscreant to be welcoming, except for Renee herself who authored this imbecilic attempt to refute all of the numerous negative reviews already out there.
We are to believe somebody just decided "in the interest of "fairness" to visit a motel three miles away and then post a glowing review complete with the desk clerk's name, her phone number, her e-mail address as well as an overly detailed description of all the rooms, the room rates, the kind of beds they use, ect, ect...
Nice try Renee! But the fleabag rattrap has closed!
Finish your lunch, the Vodka is getting warm!
Unique Quality: Horrible. It was not a in but an antiquated Motel (not hotel) that was home to many inhabitants who seemed like Psychiatric patients. Trash was piled up all over the place. The odd residents would be drinking in the common areas as well as chain smoking all night long. Entire families were crammed into small rooms. There would be frequent power failures as well as leaks during rains. Bugs were common.
Directions: Nice area, but the "inn" was a bizarre inclusion.
I live within 3 miles of the Battle Green Inn and, given some adverse Internet reviews, I decided to check it out in person; out-of-town friends of mine are coming to visit and the Inn’s remarkable location right in the center of historic Lexington Mass would be ideal for them. Upon my visit I concluded this was a great place to stay!
The Front Desk Manager, Ms Renee Reynolds (email@example.com, 781-862-6100) responded most graciously to my unexpected visit and gave me a tour of three unoccupied rooms – the Suites were unavailable. Their “Superior Heritage Rooms” (US$99, queen bed) have quaint New England décor with a nice view of Lexington Center and the “Deluxe King” (US$79) rooms are larger. These rooms include a premium TempurPedic mattress, small refrigerator and microwave oven – remodeled in 2003. No, the place is not a palace with multi-million dollar renovations, nor should that be expected given their modest rates.
For anyone wanting a place to stay in the center of historic Lexington, this location is “the only show in town”, there is no other within walking distance. Other motels/hotels are by Rt. 95/128, 3 miles away in Lexington and about 5 miles in Waltham. Business travelers would do well to examine how these other places jack-up their prices during mid-week. With indoor parking, from the Battle Green Inn there are great restaurants and historic sites within a couple of blocks.
PS- For the record, I have absolutely no affiliation or relationship of any kind with the Battle Green Inn - I write this simply in the interest of fairness.
Unique Quality: Location, location, location!
