Room was clean and had a microwave and refrigerator which was nice. Hot breakfast was more than we expected. Only complaint was we stayed on the first floor and I could hear the people walking around on the second floor all night long. I would ask for second floor next time. I also didn't realize we had to pay for... More

Enjoyed the comfortability of the room. Prices was good too. Will definitely be coming to stay again on my next trip. Right near the T and restaurants not far from this location. Bed was real comfort and the overall appearance of the room was good. It definitely surpass my expectations.

This hotel was one of the more affordable that we found in Boston. It is around a 2 block? walk to a train stop, a few blocks walk from a good restaurant and shopping area. The room is pretty standard, maybe a little bit shabby as in it could use a few touch ups. I'd suggest getting to breakfast early,... More

Staff was very nice and friendly. Unfortunately our room was dirty. When we checked to our room we noticed the bathroom had not been cleaned from the previous guests. Carpert was also very dirty. Place needs a major clean up.

The hotel was not visibly dirty but we notice how much dirt came through the tub. It was gross. Also, we noticed that when we went to our first room that we opened someone else's hotel room and poor man was asleep as we got in late!!!

This hotel was okay but the staff at the front desk were great. The hotel is pretty old and in need of refurbishment but the location worked best for us since my daughter lives nearby.

This Best Western is in a convenient location to the Brookline area of Boston. Older hotel but the hotel consists of several detached 2 story units with parking wrapped around the units for close access to your car for several units. Outside patio off the breakfast area is nice. Hotel reminds me of being in a "motel" circa the 1950's... More

First I must say that while this hotel is 4 miles from Tufts University, it takes over 25 minutes to get there because of the traffic and city layout. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
