What a beautiful place, and what a lovely experience....if you need a generic, corporate kind of efficiency and anonymity for your stay in Brookline, choose the Mariott. If you appreciate a more stately pace, and the pleasures of a beautifully appointed, lovingly restored old mansion -- including a fully equipped kitchen where you can assert your own independence vis a...

The Longwood Inn is in a quiet and beautiful area with lots of other stately homes. My friend and I stayed in a room with two queen beds up the upper floor - on the plus side, the room was HUGE (we had four suitcases between us, all open on the floor and could still walk around easily), but unfortunately...

I stayed at the Longwood Inn over Columbus Day Weekend. I was treated well by the staff and was "worked in" to a heavily booked inn by John, the manager. They were very willing to accomodate my stay, even if it meant moving me into a different room halfway through my 4 day stay. I would recommend this inn to... More

Love the charm of this inn. Set in the twenties, the decor is well maintained. The rooms were clean, freshly painted, TV with cable and most of all quiet. The staff was nice. There is a shared kitchen. That would be my only complaint, that they didn't offer any breakfast, not even fruit or cereal bars. But other than that,... More

We stayed for 8 nights when I was attending a conference and my wife came along to be a tourist. The price was very good when compared to all the other options in the Longwood Medical area. It was a charming old house with new bath and kitchen fixtures. The location was excellent: short walk to my conference location and... More

We arrived on a very wet and windy day to start our visit to Boston. Nobody in reception, rang the bell, waited again...5 minutes later a woman arrived, flustered saying she had been in her apartment, not heard the bell......No welcome, just a list of things that we couldn't do...did however finish off with giving us a phone number should...

The house was old and interesting. Everything was antique and nice. Good room and free wifi and carpark. Great restaurants and shops in Brookline. Booked this on Tripadvisor reviews and am glad I did that!

My boyfriend and I were celebrating our 5 year anniversary by going to see a Placebo concert in Boston and needed lodging. After being horrified at a lot of the reviews of other hotels in our price range in the area (bed bugs, ew!), we found this one on Priceline. It was perfect: In our budget, a 25 minute walk... More

Stayed here just one night for a Red sox game, had a great stay! Staff was very accommodating and friendly. and our room was very spacious and modern! Walking distance to the T, and walking distance to Fenway! We will stay again.

I discovered this inn on a past trip visiting my son in college, it's about 4-5 blocks away from his school. Looked charming, so I checked it out further & decided to stay when moving him back in for the semester. My husband & I were originally to stay, but my son had a change of move-in plans & we...
