I booked a 2 queen-bed room via Hotwire at about 1/2 the price offered at the hotel's own website. My check-in was quick and efficient. Given Christmas Eve, rooms were plentiful, and I got room 204. In this motel layout, my room was away from the main street. My room was clean upon entry. The bathroom is a bit tight... More

I selected the hotel based primarily on location and price and was very pleased with the choice. The facilities and amenities were all fine, it was the staff that made the difference. Everyone from check-in to check-out was helpful and pleasant. I would stay at this hotel again in a minute. The location is outside the normal touristy areas of... More

BEST WESTERN University Hotel-Boston/Brighton, on Commonwealth Ave. surprised me. I am a loyal Marrriott Rewards member (Platinum) and am very fussy about cleanliness and comfort. I've never stayed at a Best Western hotel. This Best Western is a nicely landscaped and quiet oasis in a busy part of the city. Every part (room, parking area, breakfast room, lobby) could not...

We recently stayed at the Best Western University Hotel-Boston/Brighton, MA. Except for my initial surprise that our guest room opened directly outside, near to a main street, our stay was safe and sound and lovely. The room was clean, there was a comfortable chair, a desk and flat-screen TV. The bed was very comfortable and there was plenty of space... More

Older, but well kept/clean hotel. Only real criticism would be that the pull out couch was an older model and not comfortable for my adult son. Breakfast selections (hot/cold) good. Good value for the price. Within Boston with free and ample parking a definite plus.

This hotel is pretty well run, I enjoyed my stay and may come back again. The manager named Michael is somewhat rude, but the high quality non-managerial staff easily makes up for it. The breakfast was also surprisingly good considering the amount of money paid, and while I'm on that part of things, in general it is a pretty good... More

Great location for a BC game. T Blue Line is 1 block away. There are restaurants, clubs, a pharmacy and grocery stores within a couple blocks. The staff are nice and very helpful. The hotel is clean, private and quiet.

This hotel is very clean and modern, with helpful staff. It has nice landscaping, although part of the lot and rooms are on a very steep slope. We stayed here mainly because of the location. There are not many other hotels close by. It is close to family, so that we can walk to their location and not worry about... More
