My wife and I attended a wedding in June in Brookline and had the pleasure of staying at the Longwood Inn. Our room was very comfortable, better than many hotels. Our bed was comfortable and our bath was awesome. The staff was very helpful answering questions, especially about the trains and the numerous restaurants and shops around the area. The... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Longwood on and off for ten years. We have always found the service quite good and the facilities more than adequate for our needs. The experience we had on our most recent stay, however, makes me want to give one employee, Head of Housekeeping's/Lost and Found's Noah Gopin, TEN stars instead of... More

My wife and I stayed in this Inn for three nights while in Boston for a wedding. The rooms are clean and adequate. The rooms are small but the worst part was the mattress was horrible. Also the towels were small and of poor quality. The staff was not very friendly. We had a great time in Boston but the... More

I stayed in the Longwood Inn for 4 nights while attending a course in Harvard's School of Public Health. Its about a 20 minute pleasant walk to the campus. This is a lovely property with plenty of character. The lobby and sitting room have a gentleman's club atmosphere with wood paneling, comfy leather chairs and huge fire places. The bedroom... More

We chose the Longwood Inn because it was more reasonably priced than other nearby inns and hotels. It has much to recommend it, especially the free parking (essential in Brookline if you have a car). Our spacious room was on the second floor, facing the street, and although we kept the windows open, it wasn't noisy. The bathroom was nicely... More

This hotel has outstanding customer service. The sales manager named Bill and his associates Ms. Chevelle and Mr. Antonio were awesome. As our child has attended school in Boston, we have continously stayed at this hotel during each visit and everytime they make us feel like it is our last visit with them. They go above and beyond to accomodate... More

When I need to stay in the Coolidge Corner area my first choice is The Samuel Seward Inn. Unfortunately there were no rooms available. The Courtyard was also booked and I do not like the Holiday Inn. I had some trepidation about staying at the Longwood Inn based on some of the reviews, but its eemed to be the best... More

I sorry that nuds78 had an unsettling experience while checking in at the Longwood Inn. When guests stay here I want them to feel comfortable and at home. I feel that he was let down in this respect which is disappointing to me, regardless of whether he planned to stay repeatedly or just one night. I would like to respond... More

There are two places to stay on Longwood Avenue. They are both near Children's Hospital. This one, Longwood Inn, is much cheaper but down the road in Brookline. The other place is the Inn at Longwood Medical and it is in Boston right next door to Children's. Both are located on the same street, Longwood Ave. The Longwood Inn is... More

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
