Needed a place to stay when construction delays of a new home left us with no place to go. Located in suburban Boston, this hotel is very close to shopping, dining areas (1-2 miles) and provides easy access to major highway to downtown. The staff are friendly and accommodating. This hotel is pet friendly with only a nominal fee per... More

I stayed here four years ago, and rooms have improved nicely. Friendly check-in with Jessica, but the process was slow due to non-cooperating computers. Assigned room did not take into consideration the requests included in my reservation, IHG reward status was not considered either. Jessica fixed that. Room was upgraded with modern design, nice kitchenette, flat screen TV and DVD... More

My family stayed here to avoid outrageous prices in downtown Boston. We had a queen bed and a sofa bed, both of which were serviceably comfortable. The kitchen was wonderful for saving money on food and everything was very clean. The best part of this hotel is the location; it's about 5-10 minutes between two T stations, making travel to...

Comfy bed, kitchenette, clean and QUIET. For only sleeping there it was just fine! No breakfast there, but a coin laundry/snack machine/exercise room. Pleasant desk clerks. All in all. It is a good bang for your hard earned buck! If ever in the Boston area, I would stay there. It's about a half hour "T" ride from the airport.

The hotel is clearly an older establishment that had been renovated. The room (a suite) was bigger and much better appointed for a long-term stay than I would have expected for the price. For example, it had a large work space and well-stocked kitchen that one could actually cook in (the ability too borrow a blender and toaster was nice).... More

Great hotel, clean, great service, great location for visiting Boston and historic areas such as Adams family houses and easy access to Plymouth Rock. Also easy access to MBTA for visiting Boston without dealing with traffic. Facility also provides a laundry and workout room, most of all price was very reasonable

This Candlewood Suites hotel in Braintree is a good option for visiting the Boston area on a budget. The rooms feature kitchenettes like other "suites" hotel brands, but the facility does offer features like a free breakfast, or a courtesy van service. That said, the prices are very good for the area, the kitchenettes have the essentials that you'll need... More

Friendly front counter staff and it was very clean. No continental breakfast but they do have a convenience shop to get food if you want to pay a pretty penny. I am not much of a breakfast person so it wasn't a deal breaker. Had to walk approx 1/2 mile to bus stop to ride to subway station (no shuttle).... More
