Oasis Guest House was exactly what my partner and I needed for a comfortable 1-night stay in Boston. It's located in a cute neighborhood conveniently located near Fenway and the Green Line. We were upgraded for no extra charge, and our room (w/private bathroom) was great! The entryway/common area is nicely decorated, and all the staff were helpful and friendly. Take advantage of the complementary continental breakfast if you can! We would stay here again.
Very clean, well maintained B&B property located in a residential area close to mass transit, Amtrak and Logan Airport. Friendly, knowledgeable staff on site 24 hours. Rooms offered have either shared bath or private with wifi. Breakfast included served 7am to 10am. Luggage storage available while you tour the "walkable city". Will definitely be back!
Perfect spot for me! Super clean, very nice staff, & great breakfast to start the day! The nightly tea was a nice touch to end a busy day! It's an easy walk to Fenway (.5), restaurants, shopping, & easy access to subway. Quiet neighborhood & close enough to Boylston, Newbury, Prudential Center/ or take the subway to major landmarks if you're not a walker. I look forward to my next stay!
I stayed at the Oasis Guest House for a couple of nights in early July. I had booked a 1 person shared bathroom room but was upgraded to an ensuite room. I loved staying at the Oasis Guest House. There's something very comforting about seeing the same faces at the front desk every day. Being able to have a friendly chat with them about the neighborhood as you come home or head out. Staying in a place that blends into the neighborhood rather than seeking to dominate it. Boston is a very walkable city with great public transportation options and the Oasis Guest House is well situated to let you head out and explore the city. The property is centrally air conditioned and kept at a comfortable temperature. There was also a small fan in the room which I didn't need but was nice to have on hand. There was also a spare blanket in the dresser which I didn't need but was nice to have on hand. The room was not large but was perfectly comfortable and a very relaxing place to return to after a day of walking around the city. The bathroom was very clean. The shower space was a bit tight but worked well. I will definitely be returning to the Oasis Guest House on my next trip to Boston.…
(+) Simple but confortable rooms, staff was supper friendly and amicable, breakfast was ok. Location is just perfect for anyone running Boston marathon (walking distance from bus for departure and finishing line). Recommend without hesitation to anyone who wants to attend the marathon and does not want to pay the excessive prices of the hotels. (-) Bathroom could use a refurbishment, shows some signs of age.
Absolutely stay here if you visit Boston! I paid for a 1-person room with shared bathroom but upon arrival I got a free upgrade to a bigger room with private bathroom. I can’t speak for the shared bathroom but my room and bathroom were very clean and stocked with plenty of fresh towels. The room had a desk, chair, hairdryer, and 2 bedside tables… Nothing fancy but it was perfect for being a place to relax a bit after a long day of sightseeing. They provide shampoo and bar soap but if you don’t like it just go to Lush and ask for free samples. The AC is centrally controlled (so you can’t adjust in your own room) but there is a small fan in the room if you get too hot and I found they actually adjusted the temperature very well. The only downside is my deadbolt to my room didn’t work but it’s okay because I stacked a bunch of stuff behind the door when I was sleeping. The breakfast wasn’t fancy but there was lots of variety and you could eat as much as you wanted. The best part of this experience was the STAFF, they were so welcoming and friendly and always ready to provide suggestions. This was my first time travelling solo and by the time I reached Boston I felt extremely homesick but the staff here made me feel really comfortable and just interacting with them motivated me to explore the city and continue my trip instead of going home. Almost everyone I’ve met in Boston is super rude (as a Canadian, trust me when I say people are rude) but all the staff of this hotel were always so kind and really reminded me of customer service back home. The hotel is super convenient, it’s near the green line train station and lots of shopping/food options. It’s not really accessible because there are stairs even going to the front door but honestly if you are coming to Boston in the first place it is not a really accessible city in general especially on the transit. Anyways this is my first trip advisor review because I wanted to express how much I liked this hotel and I will definitely recommend it to my friends/family because it’s a very reasonable price for this extremely expensive city and the quality of my stay was superb! Thank you for having me!! :)…
An absolute dump but reasonably clean. Only a bit of mold and a few dead bugs. Looks like it was inexpensively renovated in approximately 1940. Paid $292 for what looks like a bad motel 6 at best. In terms of bang for buck this is about the worst I have ever experienced in many many years of extensive traveling. Totally perplexed about the high reviews.
Stayed here in early May in their single room with 2 baths across the hall for guest use. Everything very clean and never had to wait for the bathroom. Great breakfast with lots of variety. Safe neighborhood and close to a Charlie station. Easily walked to Fenway on a beautiful Sunday. This is a great place if you don't want to break the bank especially for the single room. Highly recommend.
Stayed for three nights. Small room but clean and had everything we needed. Buffet breakfast included sweet treats, eggs, muffins and cereals plus orange juice, teas and coffee. Rooms and communal area a little dated but this added to the charm. Friendly hosts. Ideal location for exploring Boston. Would love to stay there again.
I received a message from the property accusing me of posting a low grade review on booking.com, when in fact I did not yet post any review. And that is beside the point--please see the attached photo of the original message. The tone of the message is caustic, hostile, accusatory, and completely unjustified. This is highly ironic as I actually recommended the property to friends after my trip. What this reveals about this place is the extreme rudeness beneath the veneer of hospitality.
