We were surprised by the overall cost of staying in Boston. Hotels begging at $200 and B & Bs costing $200 to $300 were the norm. We had a choice to go far out of town or pay the price in town. We found the Nolan House. The cost was very low, so we didn't expect much. We knew we'd... More

After reading previous reviews, my response to the naysayers is you belong in an impersonal hotel! We stayed here while attending an event near the convention center as a previous reviewer had done. Why would anyone pay more than $300 a night to stay in a sterile impersonal environment such as a hotel when you could stay at this B... More

If you like the creature comforts and standards associated with regular chain hotels, I don't think the Nolan B&B is for you. It's a very quaint and classic style B&B, similar to what you might find in a small English town. A Victorian house, that's adorned with handmade crafts, trinkets, bone china, antique furniture, with creaky floorboards and traditional central... More

My wife and I spend 10 days at the Nolan House and found the visit very welcoming. John was very gracious and informative. We has very nice breakfasts and received good advise on how to get around. The neighborhood is very welcoming as well. There are people in the community that are open to helping out and I even got... More

My husband and I stayed in Nolan house for 4 nights. John was really friendly and accommodating and we enjoyed his great breakfasts. The location was great, close to bus station that will get you to the subway station in few minutes. The room was clean and comfortable. Enjoyed saying in a victorian house! I definitely recommend staying here.

My husband and I stayed here for the second year in a row for the Boston Marathon. We had another wonderful experience! For other reviews that say John provides poor breakfast, are you kidding? Yes, he always provides simple items like cereals, yogurts, etc, but he also provides different toasts with exotic jellies/jams, differently prepared eggs, pancakes (which are absolutely... More

This is a great place to stay in Boston. I was on a business trip and did not book a room until close to the convention time. The hotels were either booked for over $300 a night for the location near the convention center. My office administrator found this B&B online and we decided to give it a try. I... More

I love going to Bed and Breakfasts and this one is the worst I have ever been to. Every B&B I have been to, has had a charming host and a wonderful breakfast. Nolan House provided neither. John was not very welcoming. It was like I was at a hotel. I expect more than that from a B&B (up until... More

If you are expecting individual room temp control, a parking garage & a full menu then you need to go to a hotel! This is a charming B & B with comfortable rooms which are beautifully decorated. It is in a quiet area close to great dining. John knew we were driving and gave us his parking place when we... More

We booked a room at the Nolan house to attend a convention. While a little difficult to find, once found the house was charming and just as presented on the website. The neighborhood was quiet and had several good option to eat. However, the owner of this property John Nolan is one of the most rude and condescending people I... More
