the Longwood Inn is a fantastic place to stay. Imagine! Free parking and just blocks from mass transit. There is a shared kitchen with high-end appliances and room furnishings were updated. Otherwise, this is a lovely old mansion.

I had a very nice stay here while attending a conference in Brookline (Boston). The Longwood Inn is a Victorian House that has been renovated but still has kept its charm. My room was small but very nicely laid out and comfortable, with new bedding, new LCD screen tv with cable, new bathroom, AC, and free wireless. My bathroom was... More

We really enjoyed the updated fully stocked kitchen to make dinner with Trader Joes down the block. The park in the back was an added bonus. Our rooms were clean with flat-screen TV and private bath. You can also eat in the dining room and watch TV in the living room. We felt right at home.

Mine is a mixed message review. GREAT Inn in general - gorgeous public rooms - dark wood, fantastic wallpaper, wonderful 'study' with leather couches and light for reading the paper with a cup of coffee. Room: Our room (#12?) - right beside the office - had 2 double beds and a private bath. Clean, comfortable, faced the park/ballfield out back.... More

I have stayed here 4 times over the past 10 years and each time was a charm. Close to the green line, many stores and places to eat. A park and tennis courts behind and the area is very quiet. They may not be available in the evening which means more privacy in the public spaces there but there is... More

Really nice building with plenty of parking. It's in a nice part of the city that i'd never been to before, also close to allston, a neighborhood with lots of bars, shops, etc... The main attraction to me was that it was within walking distance of a Green Line T stop and only one stop from fenway park! Dont expect... More

We were looking for a place just ouside downtown Boston with easy public transport connections around the city and the Longwood Inn was perfect for that . It provided easy access (8-10 min walk to Green line (C or D)). Also, it is an area with great restaurants, grocery stores (Trader Joe's) and a lot of coffee shops. It is... More

I called Longwood Inn over 10 times since the night of February 23rd, 2008. Nobody answered until morning of February 24th, and the female worker who answered the phone was very disrespectful- speaking with a haughty attitude and disrupting my reservation request. She told me that I shouldn't get this confused with the Best Western Inn at Longwood. I simply... More

We stayed at the Longwood for two nights, and were reasonably happy there, given the money spent. We got the basement room at the rear, which was fine - it still had decent enough windows overlooking the park behind, although it was at street level so for privacy reasons we kept the blinds drawn for the most part. And despite... More
