The Longwood Inn was a nice place to stay with a few inconveniences of note: It was very difficult to use their wifi(kept getting kicked off) and had to use phone as hotspot on several occasions... Also, the window unit in the room didn't do much to keep the humidity down and so you either cranked it way down and... More

My first experience at a B & B. We would definitely stay again! Dark wood inside, with a good balance between original style and updates. Our room was smaller than what I expected, and had a slanted ceiling but was quite cozy. Everything appeared very clean and well taken care of. Even the shared kitchen cabinets and fridge were well... More

I have been staying at Longwood Inn as an alternative to a traditional hotel or B&B for the past few weeks. This is an excellent option for travelers who are self-sufficient and want a clean room in a lovely neighborhood outside of downtown Boston. Off-street parking is available. There is no food served, but you are welcome to store food... More

The Inn was beautiful and exceptionally clean. The staff was delightful. However the rooms are a bit small and we were on the third floor which we were not expecting, in a room with slanted ceilings. There was a nightstand on only one side of the bed which was a bit if a problem and the towels were very small... More

We were so excited to stay at this Inn just to be able to! The staff at check in(Emily) was so helpful with information on where to go for dinner, and how to get to the T if needed. We walked to dinner which wasn't too far, but glad we had the small map Emily gave us as it was... More

Pleasantly surprised to find a cosy and clean place for my first time visiting Boston on business. There is a kitchen to make coffee and a fridge to keep food if you prefer to prepare eat there. A short walk to local restaurants. I would definitely stay there again.

You know, even at highly rated destinations, there are always a few disgruntled reviews. Who knows why? So you may choose to ignore this review, but it may be at your peril to do so. I picked this Inn because it was inexpensive and in a very convenient location. From the outside, it looks a cheery New England Inn. In... More

crystalcove600, Owner at Longwood Inn, responded to this review

It is unfortunate this guest did not appreciate the beautiful interior architecture of this 1900s victorian mansion, with the original beautiful woodwork detail in the front foyer, dining room and staircase. The inn has been recently renovated and all bathrooms have subway tile, and granite, keeping with the original style of the inn. The wallpaper of the common area is... More

I went to Boston for a conference and after looking at the main chain hotels available, I chose the Longwood Inn because it was within walking distance of the conference, and located in a charming neighbourhood with lots of large trees. The room was cozy with slanted ceilings. Had a TV, desk, and washroom. The shared kitchen was very well... More
