    From now on, whenever I stay at Boston, I will do my best to stay at the Beacon Inn. Great Location with Boston University, and great restaurants within walking distance. The room itself was spacious and had all the amenities I needed. I particularly enjoyed the free water and coffee offered at any time. As an college student, this helps.... More

    Had a wonderful stay! Close to a lot of cool locations like Fenway and the Paradise Rock Club. People at the front desk were great, room was nice and homey, and parking was reasonable. I'll definitely be staying here again!

    I have stayed here once before and both times were great. Great location in Brookline, walking distance to Fenway. Parking is cheap for Boston. Cozy rooms. Only thing it is lacking is a soda/ice machine. There is a whole foods around the corner and the hotel has complimentary juice, milk, and cereal.

    Had a fantastic stay at the Beacon Inn. We were looking for a reasonable place to stay in Boston and we made a great choice. The rooms were extremely spacious and very clean and had free wi-fi and HBO. I found the front desk staff to be very helpful and knowlegelable about the area, especially Joel. The inn also had...

    This inn was on the list of housing recommended by Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for patients getting treatment there. It was within walking distance to DFCI, and so it seemed ideal. I booked two rooms for two nights, aware of the 14-day advance cancellation fee, of one night's stay, but not concerned because my appointment and procedure dates were set. Turned... More

    For some reason I wanted to save on cash when I had a BU reunion. Well the first night I stayed I woke up the next morning itching! Unaware that I was bitten by bedbugs, I asked the staff to put new sheets because I though I was having some skin reactions to the sheets. On the second day I... More

    This review, which has been posted 4 months after the supposed dates of stay is categorically untrue. The management staff does not believe this guest ever stayed at our property. We have regular inspections conducted by professionals and do not have any such incidence. More

    I recently stayed multiple nights at the Beacon Inn, at their 1087 Beacon Street location (there are 2 Beacon Inns....same company, so be careful to know which one). The price was great given what hotel prices were in the area and the location handy. However, the rooming situation was not wonderful. I was on the third floor (not told that... More

    we had never stayed in Brookline before. I discovered the Beacon Inn by doing an Internet search for cheap hotels in the area. The location of the beacon in is perfect. It is about 30 minutes to Boston, 30 minutes to Cambridge. It's very centrally located and it is directly across the street from a T station. The breakfast part... More

    This was the perfect Boston experience for us! The character building was cozy, charming, safe, and it's location was very convenient to get downtown. Minutes from downtown on the T, with the stop right outside the door. Coffee shops and Whole Foods across the street. The staff was very helpful, and friendly. This will be our new Boston home away... More
