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...

Want to attend Redsox games with ease? Take the train to anywhere in Boston within just a few steps of this clean brownstone Bed & Breakfast? Pay a reasonable room rate? Then this is the place... I reserved a parking spot ahead of time for $25 per day. Make sure to ask when booking your room. Well worth it! We... More

I traveled to Boston for job interview. Beacon Inn offers fantastic location-very close to Harvard Medical School and all the hospitals: Children’s, Brigham and Women's, Dana Faber. The neighborhood is great, safe, and close by coffee shops, restaurants, and grocery shops. The personnel in the hotel are fantastic, very pleasant, kind and helpful. The rooms are clean and cozy.

I was very pleased with the safety of the neighborhood and its proximity to both the T and many surrounding stores in Brookline. The staff was courteous and very easy to work with. I am very content about Beacon Inn and felt very comfortable with the room they provided. They were upfront about the parking fee and provided a very... More

Very nice location for downtown and longwood area. Room was nice and tidy. Biggest advantage of 1087 over a big hotel chain is the excellent staff that is willing to help you with whatever you ask them. I wouldnt hesitate to book here for my next trip to Boston! Also walking distance to washington square where you can find restaurant... More

Needed a last minute room due to teaching schedule- usually stay at beech tree inn but they were full- over the phone, they quoted me the Room rate- I asked if they had parking - and he didn't mention the parking fee until after I had checked in and paid my bill (without the parking fee on it). Only later... More

I love this place! It's such a good alternative to a hotel and much more affordable. 1087 is a great location for me and I'm glad we stayed there! I wanted to make sure my new husband was comfortable there. I needed a room on the first floor and that's what I got!

I enjoyed my stay here. I will definitely stay here again. Exceptional staff. Great value. If you do not need 24 hour service and an elevator, this is a great place to stay. Checkout Coolidge corner for a great retro theatre and good restaurants. Near all the medical and brain centers of America's smartest city, Boston

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
