While the rooms are small, the location, the location, the location and the cost more than compensate making this an excellent choice for a couple or single traveler. The staff are warm and eager to help and the rooms and common areas are clean and well managed. The hotel has a small but comfortable lobby and a impressive computer room... More

It is my second stay at this hotel, and the only reason I came back is location. It's a 2-station MTBA ride from the airport (direct, exiting in front of the hotel), and you're located in the immediate vicinity to all historic Boston places, several metro lines, many restaurants, etc... This time I received a room with view on the... More

My niece and I decided at the spur of the moment that we needed to visit this amazing city. We were able to get a good room at a good price. We stayed in an atrium view room which was fine as we would not be in the room a lot. The room was very spacious as was the bathroom.... More

Not a place I'd recommend for children. No in room coffee maker, breakfast or Valet parking. But everything in the city is an easy walk away including public parking at a discounted rate with validation. Very clean and great for its location

For some reason, no one seems to mention this hotel. Yet we found this place ideal for a long weekend. Staff was gracious, our room was very good, and short walks brought us to Faneuil Hall, the Aquarium, and other places visitors typically want to see in Boston. Granted, it's not near Fenway Park, but a short walk brought us... More

Great location.. When we checked in they gave us 2 free drinks for the lounge.... We woke up every morning and had Starbucks downstairs (so convenient for the coffee lovers. Stayed two nights and then loved the location and did a day trip to p- town instead of staying there.

Whilst this isn't a terrible place to stay it needs some improvements to move up a level. Beds and rooms are good. A VCR and DVD player with Amp is very strange in addition to the physical keys they offer. What reduced it to Average is the water pressure. Its a good looking bathroom but the shower took forever and... More

Considering the price we paid for two nights in this hotel I expected more than what we got in terms of service and the hotel itself. When we arrived, 15minutes before check-in time of 15:00, the room wasn’t ready, which is totally fine but there wasn’t even a polite apology which is the least you can do even if you... More

I took my mom a trip to New York and Boston for her 70th Birthday. We spent 4 nights in Boston at the Haborside Inn. It was a great location and a wonderful place to stay. The rooms were spacious, clean and quiet. The staff was very friendly and helpful. This is a great place to stay for exploring all... More

i booked two rooms to attend a concert on the Waterfront. The rooms were clean and the staff was great. We walked to the north end for dinner, then back to the hotel before we headed to the concert. We had breakfast next door at The Granary and wandered around the farmers market on the Greenway. We did awake to... More
