We enjoyed our stay at the Coolidge Corner guest house . Nice comfy bed, nice quiet room, ensuite bath. The room temperature was very nice for a July stay , very cool. the housekeeping does a wonderful job. Just a heads up no housekeeping on the weekends, at least with our stay. Our stay was very, very nice. We will stay there again when we’re back in Brookline. A nice perk was the free washer/dryer after housekeeping went home. The sad note we had no breakfast because of the COVID Virus. Which we knew of before arriving. We did have the kitchen at our beck and call. We use the microwave to warm up leftovers. Really nice place.

I am committed to owner-operated, family-owned small businesses. The Coolidge Corner Guest House is where I stay when I need to continue the conversation with my Primary Care Physician. The entire experience is lovely: self check-in, gorgeous home, everything for a restful sleep and a refreshing morning shower. Off-street parking can be reserved, but I love the walk to Longwood Medical Area. Imagine if guests of every health facility had such wonderful hosts in the community.

Very clean and in a great location (and just a couple blocks from the T). It was quiet and amenities as advertised. I would definitely stay here again. I also appreciated their tips for restaurants and site-seeing. Room rate includes daily maid service, which was a nice surprise.

I have been staying at the Coolidge Guest House for the last year! I feel safe staying there alone and during COVID! Sean is just a text message away to answer questions, make a last minute reservation, etc.The rooms are adorable, clean, reasonable, and comfortable. I highly recommend it!

We have stayed in this guest house a few times during our daughter's years in college in Boston and it is always wonderful! Very clean, very quiet. Great location. They have parking available and only charge a small fee to park your rental car. No food amenities this time due to Covid, but when they do have it they have wonderful baked goods and coffee available in the mornings. Highly recommend this charming, convenient place to stay in Boston!
