We came for the Boston Marathon and found the location quite a walking distance from the route, but it was not an issue whatsoever because we called Uber and a ride in less than 5 minutes. The room was average, but clean and had everything we needed. Customer service at the hotel was excellent. We enjoyed our stay. We'll be... More

We only needed one night so this was a pretty decent spot. The room itself was great if not a little cramped. It was an odd corner room with one queen bed but wasn't too much of a inconvenience. What was an inconvenience was the fact that there wasn't an elevator and no breakfast of any sort (they did have... More

Arrived in rainstorm. Rain pouring into entrance. Man with wet vac sucking it up slower than it was coming in. Desk clerk (dark-skinned Middel Easterner) just nasty. Attitude of a skunk.

We stayed there for college visit there in July 08, & January 09. Hotel is OK. No continental breakfast is available. The bathroom is small & the fan does not work, so it would stink so you have to wait to use after it had been used. The location is good for BU and other places. AC worked and heat... More

This place was the same price as the super 8 which we also stayed at for one uncomfortable night (located about 5 minutes away), but was a heck of a lot better in terms of appearance, cleanliness and facilities. We caught the 64 bus from just near the hotel to central square station, and then the subway on to boston,... More

We booked two nights here based on price and location (my son was touring Harvard) and what a horrible mistake that was! Our room was filthy dirty, loud, stinky and miserable. We had to wear shoes the entire time because the carpet was so dirty. One of the mattresses had some unidentifiable substance all over the side of it, the... More

I asked the woman at reservations who booked this room for me about getting from the airport. She told me to take the silver line, then the red line then bus 64. Unfortunately, the bus did not go there and I got dropped out in the middle of no where late at night. Being a young woman, I felt vulnerable... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times in the last year since my daughter moved to Boston. I have always found it clean and well managed. The rooms I've occupied were immaculate, and the furnishings and carpet in both the rooms and public areas appeared to be new. There were never any problems getting them to accept the internet...

This place is Clean, and friendly service. I was pretty satisfied. The sheets where bright white, carpets were clean enough to walk barefoot. And most importantly, the bathroom was clean! I hate a dirty hotel bathroom.
