I was so surprised how much I liked this hotel!! The most comfortable beds, EVER!! The breakfasts were very good, enough for me and my husband. The convenience to everything is exceptional. The only negative is parking. There are not enough spaces for all their guests. We needed to improvise two times. The staff is very,very nice, and I would... More

If you need to be downtown, need a concierge or room service, this isn't a good choice. If, however, you have other things you wish to spend your money on, like to park in Boston for free, take public transportation, have a comprehensive free breakfast, free Wi Fi, and have children at BC, BU, Northeastern, etc., then you definitely should...

My family of 4 stayed for 1 night during the third week of July. Room was pretty clean and a good size, but there was a bit of an odor and the stove was old/worn. We had a king suite and none of the doors shut properly, which made it a bit inconvenient with the kids. The bed was comfortable... More

I stayed here during the third week of July, when Boston is packed with parents and students for college visits or orientations. Hotels in city had no vacanices and prices rose. Room was clean. However, toilet was clogged once during a sven-night stay (fixed by management) and stopped again the night before checkout, before correcting itself eventually (I told management... More

I had a most enjoyable stay at this Best Western property. Although the hotel is a bit on the older side it is solidly built, the rooms are very clean and updated. The bed was most comfortable. The property is set back a bit from Commonwealth Ave and is very quiet. I was in Boston for business and spent some... More

Typically quiet is not what you would think when traveling to Boston, but I am happy you mentioned this perfect attribute that we can offer. Nestled in the northwest corner of the city we are definitely quiet and easily accessible to and from downtown. I hope you had an opportunity to enjoy our free breakfast. We hope to see you... More

We had a great stay here in June for a weekend. We had a king sized room and it was very nice. Clean, nice features and served the purpose for our weekend stay. We went to see a Red Sox game- the hotel was not far from the T, which was great! In a quiet nice little neighborhood too. The... More

My family visits Boston every summer to see Red Sox games. The Best Western University Hotel is an good place to stay because its reasonably priced, has a very good breakfast, comfortable beds/pillows, is located two blocks from the T and about 12 stops from the Kenmore station (for Fenway Park)

I enjoy using this hotel when I visit Boston because I can avoid driving in the city! It is clean and also located one block from the green line T. They offer a good breakfast every day. This is a win-win.

Visiting area for Orientation at Boston University. Staff was great. Room was great for family with a bedroom and a sofa bed. Daughter said sofa bed was uncomfortable though. Food was good. Only 2 blocks to the T, which was great, we used it everyday, and sometimes multiple times in a day. Only issue was reliability of internet. Will definitely... More

Our annual Lambretta Club USA Jamboree was hosted by this hotel. Great staff and amenities - parking was tight, but very reasonable for urban Boston. Great rooms, wifi a bit of a pain since you have to 'password in' every time as opposed to remembering you, but fast enough for our needs. Great location, right on the tram and Commonwealth... More
