Not only was our repeated request not fulfulled, but the room wasn't even cleaned while away all day. Only one employee seemed to be interested in fixing things. The rest just passed the buck... Also, the breakfast was marginal at best.

Overal an okay place to stay. I am averse as to weather I would recommend this hotel in particular to anyone in the future. The staff at check in wasn't very personable or welcoming. The room was a good size, however a bit dirty.

Our family enjoyed our stay here. The building and rooms are a bit dated, but clean, and the staff was super friendly and helpful. Easy access to the T. Whole Foods was within easy walking distance. Great value for the location.

Kind staff, fine location, simple place for a simple night's stay. Breakfast in the morning was what you would expect. This hotel really has no surprises, which, when you just need somewhere easy to stay for a short period, is all you could ask for!

Very good hotel, well located, clean and quiet. It may need to have an area for personal meetings or a lounge area to relax,chat with visitors, read newspapers. Stairs to second floor are a little steep

For the money youcan't beat i! Clean, convenient and safe location, knowledgeable and professional staff, free parking and free breakfast. No reason to staff elsewhere when i visit Boston in the future.

I was here on business and this was the closest hotel to location within our price range. The room was great included fridge and microwave. Breakfast options were OK, I am not much of a breakfast person, but others seemed to be enjoying the options. The wi-fi is horrible in the evening. I was not able to get any work... More

Since we're visiting multiple colleges in Boston area I was looking for a reasonable place to stay for multiple nights and this was perfect. Away from the city traffic yet close enough to get to everywhere.
