The Samuel Sewall Inn looks more like a B&B than a hotel but it features nice rooms and a great breakfast.
We were in room 10 and that's one of the smallest rooms. Beware of the stairs because it's right beside your room and you will hear people using it at night and in the morning.
The only problem that we had really was the WIFI. It wasn't working properly. It was either very slow or simply didn't work. I asked the person on duty to fix it and they obviously called the service provider to fix it but I think Room 10 doesn't get the signal very well. They can't do much about it really but if I knew that before, I would not have booked that room.
I also read that the breakfast was so-so but honnestly we found it was great. Homemade pastries and good selection of cereals. The only problem is the size of the room where the breakfast is served. Only 3 tables and your need to go outside on the patio if they have been taken already. Or you can go to your room...
This hotel is 3 minutes away from the Green line. (Walking distance) It takes 15 min to reach downtown.
