Great location! Nice and quiet room. However, housekeeping and parking was terrible. The breakfast was mediocre. Overall, I got what I paid for. The host provided great service. Next time I will stay at different hotel.

The hotel was located within walking distance to Boston University (where I was visiting), in a nice neighborhood, with a conveniently located T station. The hotel staff was extremely nice (particularly Kelsey at the front desk, who was very friendly and engaging), and the room was very spacious and welcoming. Parking was located right outside the hotel. Overall, I highly... More

We were in Boston for a single night during a long family road trip vacation. Beacon Inn was a welcome stay on our trip, with staff going out of their way to make sure everything was acceptable. The rooms were a little rustic, but spacious, and clean. We did stay on the third floor but knew in advance there was... More

We were greeted by a man wearing a dingy white stained tee shirt. That should have been our first clue. The pictures displayed on the website must be from years ago. Our room was freezing. Central air and no way to control the temp other than putting pillows in front of the register that was held together with duct tape.... More

My wife and I stayed for the night over the past weekend. We were able to park right behind the hotel for a good price for the night. It's a nice, quiet area with the train right across the street. The room was nice and big, king bed, tv had movie channels, and it seemed clean. The bedding was comfy... More

Beautiful brownstone in a quiet neighborhood within a stone's throw to the Green Line - C and 15 minutes from everything Boston has to offer. The desk attendant was very helpful, and even stored our luggage for the entire day after our check out. 10/10 would stay again.

Unorganized. Filthy. It took 1.5 hour for someone to pick up the phone and tell me what to do because my rooom was locked and there was no key. Then finally I got in to find a leaky roof issue and ice called room, bed was wet and not made up. Another half hour of calls unanswered... at 10pm!!!! What... More

My wife and I had a lovely stay at the Beacon Inn for our 1 year anniversary. We plan to stay here again next year! Walking distance to Fenway park! Staff was very helpful with parking and everything! Lovely stay, great room! Parking is 25$/night, and if you don't need your car in down town the T train stops right... More

I think if I stay again in Boston I would definitely choose the Beacon Inn. It is convenient to the Green Line trolleys (which literally stop out front) ---take the C Line -- it is not far from Back Bay train station for those who want to use cabs, and it is within walking distance of a Whole Foods store...
