This is a really darn comfortable inn. The furniture is quirky-quaint - but the place is quiet, the staff are friendly, the room is as clean and as organized as a five star hotel. If I want to be churlish my room didn't have a desk. Other rooms do and if this matters to you ask when you book. But... More

This B&B made a recent stay in Boston extremely good. The room (after changing to a larger one) was just large enough to spend a little time in doing work; the bathroom simple. A wonderful plus was a real breakfast that changed daily that had great variety. In addition the staff of the Inn was consistently helpful. There were some... More

I went to college in Boston and this was my first trip back to Boston since graduation. I found this place on living social. It was so convenient to the T and was an easy walk to go to Fenway (GO SOX!). The innkeepers were very nice and the breakfasts were great everyday! The room was a traditional Victorian room... More

We love this inn! We stayed here recently when my daughter and I were in the area for a family wedding and college visit. The inn itself is beautiful and the beds are so very comfortable! The location is a two-minute walk from the train system that will get you easily to any part of Boston and nearby cities. The... More

We have stayed at the Samuel Sewall Inn when we visited Boston. A place close enough, yet away, with comfort and relaxation attitude. A very rich breakfast sets you up for the day, and in addition you get free hot beverages and snacks all day through. Rooms a bit small and lack of lobby does reduce the overall rating, plus... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Within an easy walk from Fenway in a super safe neighborhood. Also have the T within a 2 minute walk. A wonderful old building with great rooms. Lots of character. So nice to finally find a B and B with a king size bed. We had room 14 and it was awesome.

We had a NCL cruise leaving from Boston so came a few days early to see the sites. We selected this location because the Boston MFA and the Gardner Museum were within walking distance. The innkeepers are probably the strongest reason for recommending this accommodation as they did everything possible to assist including rescuing a suitcase we had inadvertently taken... More

Stayed here for one night when we dropped my daughter off for school. Very convenient, just a few minutes from Boston U campus. The room was cozy and the bed was very comfortable. It's an old building so there's not much soundproofing, but a place like this doesn't really attract the party crowd so noise was not an issue at... More

This Inn is excellent! The location was absolutely perfect for us - safe neighbourhood, transit very close by, walking distance to stores, restaurants, Fenway park, everything we needed! The amenities were stunning. The inn is charming and cozy. The innkeepers were the best! They could not do enough for us to make sure our experience was top notch. Breakfast was... More

The Samuel Sewall Inn is a nice alternative to staying in a hotel. My room had great character. A nice place to come back too after a day out. Staff were friendly and helpful. Having a car parking spot was very helpful for the day I had a hire car. 24 hour snacks and coffee was to have. My room... More
