Needed a place to stay overnight close to Wheelock College for my daughter's orientation. This inn fit the bill perfectly. Great neighborhood, short walking distance to the college as well as Coolidge Corner. Parking the car off-street was easy & stress-free. The room was plenty big enough for me & my daughter. Clean & quiet too. The common kitchen &... More

I enjoyed my stay here very much. My room was sparkling clean, attractive and comfortable. There are many interesting shops and restaurants within walking distance, and a great bagel place took care of breakfast. I found the staff friendly and helpful. Also enjoyable was sitting out back and taking in the antics of the squirrels and doing some bird watching.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and loved it. It is an easy walk to shopping and restaurants and an easy drive to other Boston attractions. The hotel is a charming old mansion with comfortable rooms and clean bathrooms (a real plus!) It has a very nice outside patio with new tables and chairs - great for morning coffee and... More

We met with friends in Boston for a longer weekend and spent 4 nights at the Longwood Inn. We were a bigger party and quite late for booking a hotel. Ronda, with whom I made the reservation, was very friendly and put a lot of effort into our reservation in order to make it as convenient as possible for us.... More

This gracious inn, once a private home, is a close walk to the heart of Brookline, and a relative bargain in the Boston area. The parking is easy and free, and right behind the inn is a lovely park to walk or jog in, with a playground, as well. The immaculate kitchen is available for cooking, and you'd be proud... More

My wife and I stayed here for our for days in the Boston-metro area, and it was fabulous. The staff was great, and all aspects of our stay were extremely enjoyable. While the room was small and had some odd angles ( our slant was in the bathroom rather than the bedroom), I would not let this deter me from... More

I go to Boston regularly and have stayed at the Longwood Inn several times. I always find the people there to be friendly. Perhaps that has something to do with working at this charming hotel located a short distance from Coolidge Corner in Brookline. More important to the weary traveler is the comfort of the beds, cleanliness of the rooms,... More

We spent 2 nights in May, 2010 in room #34 on the 3rd floor, which was extremely cramped and stuffy even with the A/C on. It was a little bigger than the size of a walk in closet, believe it or not! We had to bend over to get into the bed to avoid hitting our heads on the slanted... More

I am so pleased that I DIDN’T listen to the ‘nay-sayers.’ The Longwood Inn is a charming, cozy no frills inn that also happens to be the most economical deal in Boston. I admit that I was assigned one of the last few rooms that has yet to be remodeled. But the room and bathroom were VERY clean. Bed, pillows... More
