A very convenient spot for Boston. About 20 minutes to downtown and 30 minutes out to far suburbs. Right next to Boston College. Free breakfast every morning. A great value. I will definitely stay there on future trips to the Boston area.

I was visiting Boston for a convention held by Harvard University with a few other girls from Toronto. Our original plans for accommodation did not work out so we were left to find a hotel last minute. I am so happy that we found this hotel because it saved our trip to Boston which began on the wrong foot. The... More

The people working the front desk contributed a great deal to my overall positive experience at this hotel. Additionally, the hotel's close proximity to Boston College and Boston, along with its relatively inexpensive cost make this a very good value.

I came from Toronto to Boston on the weekend of October 18 for the HUWIB conference, my first time in Boston. This hotel is at a great location, affordable, the rooms were clean and spacious, and the customer service especially was outstanding. Can't say enough good things about the customer service especially as they were extremely accommodating for us, despite... More

Clean, spacious rooms. Friendly staff. Free breakfast and parking. Close to BC! For the price we paid, I honestly had no complaints. The T is nearby and Cleveland Circle is ten minutes away. Perfect for families visiting.

Good location (metro nearby), clean rooms and friendly staff. 20-30 minutes away from airport but close to the Agannis Concert hall. Downtown is only 15 minutes with the metro for around 4 dollars go and return.

Spent two nights here. Room was outdated but the beds were great, it was clean, and the staff was outstanding. Ambiance was charming, even though its a bit out of the way. Only one block from the Green line station. Since the room was old, things like the A/C and the bathroom were not the greatest. And for those who... More

I think everything was great, although the bathroom was a little small. I liked that it was roomy, and the bed was to die for. Slept so good there. Wish it was a little closer to Children's Hospital Boston.
