We ( a senior couple from Vienna/Austria) have spent an extended weekend in this oldfashioned house which is however kept in good shape with perfectly and tastefully renovated rooms. Helpfull: a common kitchen with ample fridge space. Very friendly staff. Conveniently located near Brookline center and T-access to downtown Bosaton.

We were in Boston for a Medical school reunion. The Inn, a charming mansion, was within walking distance of Harvard Medical School. The staff was very helpful, our room was large and comfortable, and the access to a refrigerator and free parking were a real plus. We would return to the Inn if we were to visit anywhere in the...

I stayed one night (see later…) at the Longwood Inn, because this was the only Inn in central Brookline that had a vacancy. Unfortunately, I know now why… First, when I wrote an email to them, they didn't answer for a few days (6 other inns in Brookline responded within hours). I made a transatlantic call to the inn, and... More

1. When booked, reservation for one night was repeated back to him, which he confirmed. 2. When he checked in, the manager again confirmed it was for one night, which he agreed to. 3. The next day when he wanted to stay for longer and was informed we did not have a room, he began swearing at the manager, and... More

We needed a place to stay last minute, for my son's kidney transplant. Everywhere we looked they were booked. The longwood was very helpful and accommidating. They helped us however they could. The maid service was very nice. Everyday they came in and cleaned our room. It was a very clean and comfortable place to stay!

This is a large mansion from 100 years ago that has been changed into a B&B without the breakfast. the location is a few blocks from Coolidge Corner where there are all kinds of restaurants and other retail establishments. It's also convenient to public transportation. We stayed in a room that was small,but had a most comfortable bed. The room... More

I love this place. What a find. My 18-year-old son and I stayed at the Longwood Inn when he came to check out Boston University. It's a gracious, spotless, beautiful house without all the fussiness and over-the-top chintz of a B&B. No one hovers over you. There's no stuffed French toast with butter rosettes. There's a terrific common kitchen,--so you... More

If you are tired of the boring hotel chains, then the Longwood Inn is the place to stay. The Inn offers a unique lodging experience, with the charm and quaintness of a victorian home, with the service and amenities of a full-service hotel. Especially impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms and kitchen area. Small size made it very easy... More

We enjoyed our stay: quiet, convenient location, cozy and clean rooms. The manager, Rhonda, was particularly helpful with checkout, directions, flight check-in, etc. Would stay there again.

The Longwood Inn is an old house renovated to house guests. It is very nice and quaint. The staff worked hard to make my stay pleasant. I couldn't have been more pleased with the Inn or the location! I'm not sure why it doesn't have a higher star level. I would give it at least 3.5 stars.
