awesome visit to the B&B - super friendly staff and extremely accommodating. Everything was ready when we arrived, wi-fi access was quick and easy for me to be able to get some work done, and all around the inn is very comfortable.

Friendly and comfortable, plus affordable -- a very nice combination! I use a sleep mask and earplugs whenever traveling, so I can't speak to the noise/light at night, but it was a very comfortable stay. The staff was helpful and the room was very clean. I was in one of the shared bathroom rooms, which at first seemed strange, but...

Tired on bare-bones, basic Airbnb's? Want something without the sharp edgers on a Motel or a comfort inn? Want to be close to a neighborhood without being located on the main strip, amidst the traffic? This Purple Guest House, two blocks from Coolidge Corners, is the police to stay. It's comfortable, clean, the on-site staff is friendly and responsive. It...

The BnB was a great and convenient place to stay. The breakfast in the morning was great (delicious bagels), and there are lots of food options near by. Wifi worked well, and the staff was helpful with directions and planning.

I have stayed many nights at the Coolidge Corner Guest House, when working at a local prestigious Business School. Clean, convenient, "uber" friendly, this B&B is a gem of a find. Much like a little piece of quaint, local,European hospitality right here in our own backyard. Can't beat the rates and the quality of service. Highly recommend!

If you are in a pinch and choose not to Airbnb, Coolidge Corner is the way to go- it has rooms with a bathroom down the hall, or ensuite bathrooms for a higher fee. The space is a huge Victorian that must have been spectacular in its past. The only downside is that someone is not on the premises all...

Excellent Service and Knowledgeable staff Will stay here again and recommend them highly. Conveniently located for academic or medical locations in the area. Also not far from public transportation. 15 minute Taxi service available to Logan airport.

I will never stay anywhere else. I was traveling alone from California and had been afraid that I would be homesick, but this cozy bnb kept me feeling like I was right at home. The amenities were lovely, and the decor was also stunning. The breakfast in the morning was a great way to start the day off. I can't...

Very nice small B&B. Great location in Coolidge Corner near MBTA. Too bad they have such a rigid no-cancellation policy, which makes flexible traveling difficult. Don't miss the birthplace of John F. Kennedy a few blocks away.

Friendly, consistent, quiet, well-appointed, convenient, and parking offered for a nominal daily fee of $5. It's not the Ritz but it fulfills its role well. Although it seemed to be running at high occupancy during my 4 night stay there, the bathroom on our floor was always clean and available. This was my one "major" concern going into this and...
