I chose this Inn because it was located just a few blocks from my 82 year old Mother's condo (too small for me to stay with her) and the price was right. $116/night which is about half of all the other places I looked. The room I had was on the third floor (no elevator) which was fine, the Manager... More

we spent two nights here in a remodeled victorian home. The place is nice actually & a great location for all means of transportation, plus a neat town of Brookline. However, do not book room 24, as you have to cross the outside hallway to access your bathroom in which you also have to unlock, it is spooky in the... More

We stayed at Longwood recently and had a great time. The inn was easy to access from many of the subway stops. We stayed up on the third floor, so we climbed stairs, but we were prepared for that. It was clean, the room was small, but nice. The bathroom had a tub/shower combo. Beds were clean and comfortable, window... More

Nothing special in terms of fittings, furniture and finishes, but an excellent price in an excellent location with free parking. Had the separate apartment (#10) with an outside entrance, porch, full kitchen/living room and private bedroom. Slept three for three nights. Worked well. Within walking distance of all conveniences. Biggest negative -- whoever had the room before us left a... More

Loved staying at the Longwood Inn. We stayed in the apartment which had everything we needed for a 1 week stay. Great having own front door and with patio table and chairs , with views over the playing fields. Laundry facilities and the ability to cook at home was really welcome. Very near tram stops to Boston , but with... More

We were originally booked in to stay two nights but ended up sneaking out after very bad night there. We we after reasonably priced accommodation in Boston (which by the way is horrendously expensive) where we could park our car and I found this place on TripAdvisor. The reviews where generally pretty positive, so I went ahead and booked and... More

Convenient, free parking, super clean and comfortable. However, the wireless was spotty throughout my visit. Before you reserve at this place, check to make sure they permanently solved the wireless problem.

Wow! What a great stay at the Loingwood Inn! We can't wait to return one day. The location is perfect for the train, restaurants, shopping and just walking in a beautiful neighborhood. The Inn is so comfortable, but very well furnished and maintained. We enjoyed the 'common' areas around the house, especially the outside deck. Such a great view of... More

I love the location in Brookline, in the Coolidge Corner neighborhood. Lots to do at night. Several quality restaurants. The Coolidge Corner Clubhouse is a nurturing waterhole. Coolidge Corner also boasts a gem of a independent cinema film house. The Longwood Inn is informal, yet well furnished. I have stayed there many times and will return.

Was there with my girlfriend for the weekend for shopping and a baseball game! The place was perfect for our kind of weekend except that our GPS didn't show us the place first, just an story for a trip. The inn was very nice with the newly renovate kitchen, perfect for the breakfast! 5 min away from the trolley and... More
