Updated rooms. King suite was great. Open and modern living area. Thank you for giving more living/working space and smaller bathroom. Staff here was terrific. The manager was able to get me checked in very early and she recommended a new restaurant 12 minutes walking distance away! Construction going on near the hotel so be wary of missing the only...

Stayed 2 nights and couldn't have asked for more. The price was decent, parking was free, breakfast was perfect for my 3 teens and the hotel is a 5 minute walk to the metro that gives you easy access to downtown Boston without having to worry about parking. Rooms were spacious, clean and modern. Staff was very friendly and helpful.... More

Boston hotels are EXPENSIVE. So when we found this at a more moderate price, we knew not to expect luxury. Overall we had a good stay. The beds were reasonably comfortable, the staff was very friendly, and they had freshly baked chocolate chip cookies at the desk waiting for us every night. The rooms were small, though, especially the bathrooms,... More

I stayed here as a single,biz traveller in May 2016. Good location but limited size car park means sometimes using one across road which is a real pain. Rooms in good order, reasonable breakfast. Good value overall.

This hotel is situated next to a construction site. If you are lucky enough to get a room away from it, you can definitely sleep a little longer in the morning.
