The staff is great: polite, helpful and friendly. The free breakfast is huge and varied. The rooms are clean. (I got a free upgrade without even asking for one. The location is convenient. Easy walk to public transportation (and downtown), near Cleveland Circle. The price is right. What's not to like?

We had such a wonderful time. We were visiting my daughter who lives close by. The night clerk, Aleany, made our stay great. Thank you so much. The person we met while getting my morning coffee was so great too.

Dirty, toilet clogged, leaks, moth and we were treated so bad by a rejected and unloved blond woman! The manager asked me what to do as apologize! I said: You need to fire her in order to keep this hotel acceptable. Expensive for its bad quality. Please search another place...

Cost was higher than we normally pay, but we picked hotel for access to the green line and the free parking. Staff was very helpful with both hotel issues and adding local advise to Boston travel plans. Unfortunately we were there when Boston temperature was just above zero Fahrenheit. There was no heat in the bathroom and the bathroom window... More

Small and freezing!! No heat in there at all and it was below freezing outside. In room heat unit kept blowing on and off all night. Take out... More

Beautiful hotel inside, great beds, spacious rooms. The hotel is great inside but kind of not to good looking in the outside. Nothing to go walking around to go eat. Staff just ok, not really the best .

The BW in Brookline gives you a good night's sleep for a reasonable price and is easy access to Dana Farber...Plus very close to Washington Square Tavern, where you can enjoy a "neighborhood" atmosphere serving delicious food and generous martinis!!

The people at Best Western were beyond nice and made sure we had a place to stay. Andrew, Jordayne and Michael were helpful, polite and were always available to... More
