We were pleased with the location and access to the city. The room is very basic, bedroom and bathroom rather small. Pull out couch is very uncomfortable. Kitchen area was clean and adequately stocked. Free parking and Complimentary wifi was a bouns.

They say that first impressions die hard. As we came to the Hampton Inn for a relatively long stay (10 days), I eagerly jumped out of bed the very first morning to walk out on the street. Just 200 feet away, there were 4 homeless people panhandling on the street at a traffic intersection..... and this was at 8 AM!... More

I was greeted by the evening desk attendant who has the name of Merry and she was. She pulled me out of my tired travel funk in two seconds flat. She helped me get some dinner before the kitchen closed, made sure I had all I needed for the next morning, and came back the following night and again exceeded... More

I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights in early December 2015. As a home-away-from-home, this hotel excels in the one thing that makes the biggest difference - everything about it is inviting. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are super-clean and really nicely equipped, the breakfast/dining area is cozy and comfortable - it bears repeating - the... More

This hotel does a very good job for their customers. It is convenient to many restaurants and for me, the office I need to go to when in the Boston area. The food in the morning is generally pretty good, the food in the evenings not so much. The front desk staff has always been very helpful.

We stay here frequently when we visit family in Boston. Rooms are comfortable, staff is friendly and breakfast is adequate. We always get a good nights rest. We are never around to enjoy free dinners that are offered. Thank you Homewood Suites.

Great stay, right beside a fun restaurant/bar with good food. CVS next door. Good parking garage. Only negative was that it was pretty far from downtown and there was often a lot of traffic. Friendly staff, clean and nice sized rooms.
