This is the best location in Brookline for a hotel. The dining and housekeeping staff are pleasant. Checkin staff make staying here a chore. Not pleasant and bordering on surly. This hotel has the ability to get a lot of repeat business.

Hi again from SLRE. My very first TA review in July seemed to resonate with well over a thousand viewers after I panned the HIE in Cambridge MA. When the HIE manager suggested I look elsewhere for future Boston-area lodging, I rebooked at the HI in Brookline, assuming it HAD to be better. So it’s mid-August now, we’re heading back... More

This place is a little dreary. The room was fine - except the first one we got was on a floor with a large extended family from another country, who had basically moved in! Kids running around the hallways at 10:30PM, room doors left open with people literally changing clothes in full view! Some kind of weird odor in the... More

Interesting hotel a bit like an inside out motel, all rooms open onto a central area that is part of the building and contains a swimming pool, the room windows are also on to this area. Room was clean and tidy plenty of soap shampoo etc. but a big old style. didn't set at hotel but area is quite residential,... More

This former motel, converted into a hotel is in a great location, but is in desperate need of a complete renovation. As an IHG Platinum Rewards Club member, I am often upgraded but, when an upgrade is unavailable, I at least expect a pleasant room. On this occasion I was allocated room 207 in the "executive tower," directly above the... More

This hotel was chosen because it was supposed to be close to Boston College. In fact the website states it is close to Boston College, however Boston College turned out to be over an hour's walk away or two trips on the trolley. The other, more serious problem, was the itch. We stayed for 6 nights in two separate beds,... More

This lived up to its reputation as a Holiday Inn--clean, very friendly staff, various amenities. It's right across the street from the "T" (Boston's trolley/subway) and within walking distance to small tasty restaurants. It's also quite close to Fenway if you're a baseball fan! On the other hand, it's a bit removed from Boston's downtown and typical tourist fanfare. Our... More

Older but decently maintained. Cleanliness was fair. Loud for first night but due to revelers next door. Quieted considerably the next night. Great access to the T, several restaurants and shops. Quaint little part of Boston. Visible recycling which makes me :) Staff at desk was friendly and helpful but accountant was totoally inaccessible and unresponsive to calls prior to... More

I had a nice sized room, well appointed, comfortable bed, nice sheets, the room was very expensive but it looked out on the back of the hotel and I was able to open the sliding glass door and turn off the AC which was great! It was one of the quietest places I've stayed at in a city, which I... More
