“January stay in Midtown Hotel, Boston”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

This is a an 'authentic retro' hotel, ie. it hasn't changed since its original build in the 70's. It's admittedly not the most attractive hotel, but it has its own charm.
It was central (5 min walk from the Prudential Centre, 10 mins from Copley Square), the staff were attentive, it was clean, the heating worked and it was great value for Boston. I would stay there again with no problem.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back, away from the road

This was an average stay. The price and the location of the hotel is what makes this hotel worth staying at. The service at the hotel was very poor. When we asked for advice on where to go out or if they could help locate a restaurant, there was no service what so ever.
If you intend on staying near downtown for a small price this hotel is an excellent choice.

Room Tip: There is not Wifi in the rooms. If you intend on parking they will charge you a 22 dollar fee.

The location is ok, the manager/desk man is arrogant and do not makes things easy to the guest. DON'T GO THERE, YOU WILL REGRET.
The place smells and the bathrooms are dirty. It's the worst nonetheless you can ever spend. Better off sleep inside your car.

The location is really good, next to the Prudential Center and two T stops. Staff was extremely nice and efficient. Even tough the hotel is dated, the room was comfortable and clean, toiletries and shower were also good. The only disapointment was the internet which is paid. It`s a basic hotel, but it was worth the trip.

This place would've been state of the art 20 years ago. Now it's all a bit worn and tired really.
The real let down was the beds. Super uncomfortable. Really makes the stay harder.
Great location though.
