I just got to this hotel. The Lady In the lobby was very impolite. First, she couldn't find my reservation. Second, I told her to look upon my father's name to the second room. Later one, she said I should have told her so! When she manage to finish she forgot to give the keys to the first room. Just... More

Beds were comfortable. The continental breakfast was well stocked with lots of fresh fruit and fresh coffee constantly being made, no complaints here. It's a ways... More

Very clean, polite & helpful staff. Went to Boston for sight seeing and this hotel was close by the T and very quiet for sleeping at night. Didn't do breakfast but was able to get coffee at any time, which was nice. The exterior of the hotel was taken care of very, very well. Would definitely go back there if... More

My family and I stayed at Best Western in late July. It is a great budget option in a city like Boston - it provides a clean and safe place to rest and a pretty decent breakfast. The location is really good, very close to public transportation. The neighborhood itself does not have much to see (well, as far as... More

The colleges are at the other end only 3.2 miles away but would have liked it just a bit closer to the college area for the parents. I gave the appearance and everything an A, but for location they could have gotten an A+

We stayed for 4 nights in August and were very happy with the service and room. We booked a room with a King sized bed, it was a very comfortable Serta. The room was clean and relatively spacious (for 2 adults) and we had quiet, peaceful nights. The shower had good water pressure and he bathroom was very clean. We... More

As Sabbath observers, we were limited as to where we could stay in order to be close to our children. This was an excellent hotel. Nothing fancy but extremely helpful staff who understood the limitations of a Sabbath observer on Friday nights and Saturdays.

Located in Brighton, MA on Commonwealth Ave, this hotel has the convenience of an urban location with the amenities and quiet of a suburban hotel. Breakfast selections are very good with efficient staff maintaining the food and the eating locations.

Stayed here this week for 3 days on a driving roadtrip with my 13 year old son. I was the nervous mother who didn't want to drive in Boston but wanted a hotel that was convenient to the T and in a good neighbourhood.
