The front desk staff were super nice and friendly. The room rate was over priced, but a local convention drove the price up, and I was glad to be able to get the room. Early check in was not available while I was there, and changing in the unisex WC off the lobby was equivalent to taking a sauna bath.... More

Really helpful reception staff. The room was small but perfect for what I needed and well priced by Boston standards. The air con in the room was good and the location was quiet. Breakfast was simple but good enough as it's inclusive. If you want more for breakfast there are plenty of other options near by. The wifi was easy... More

It hurt my soul to eat breakfast with the entire service of one-use plastic but otherwise the hotel was fine. The maintenance guy went above and beyond to help me solve a problem and everything else was convenient.

I stayed in Milner for 6 nights in May while attending NAFSA. It is definitely not close to convention center, but my choice was to be in downtown and location-wise the place was just great: very close to Boston Commons, nearby orange and green subway lines, so it is super easy to get nearly anywhere. There is a food court... More

Nice old hotel with an outstanding location in the theater district. We were two blocks from the Boston common and a green line t stop and one from tufts and an orange line stop. Very small rooms, but clean and tidy with the necessary amenities. Nice continental breakfast and laundry facilities on property.

Had a lovely stay at this hotel for three nights. It was an affordable hotel in a great location to Boston Common and other central locations. Room was a decent size for the price and pretty quiet and well air conditioned. Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful Would definitely return again.

Nice and affordable hotel in walking distance to so much! Public Gardens and Boston Common just blocks away. We even hiked to Fenway one day and Boston Harbor the next. But what was really great about this hotel was the honesty of the cleaning staff who turned in my daughter's Pandora bracelet after we had checked out, driven 7 hours... More

This wasn't our first choice for a hotel in Boston, and my reasoning held up. The room was very tiny. We could barely get around the bed, and were in each other's way while trying to get ready. The window air conditioner was not cool! No matter what we did, it wouldn't cool the room adequately. Breakfast was poor. Cold... More

Very close to the Garden and Commons. The Milner is very affordable and within walking distance of so many things. The staff was great and very helpful. I would stay there every time I go to Boston. Go
