I combed through what must have been dozens of hotels with a short drive to the airport for my last night in Boston -- all out of my price range or simply scary if within my price range. On a lark, I stretched beyond Revere and looked in Winthrop and found this gem. The room was basic, but clean and provided everything I could need (even including a safe and free wifi). The neighborhood is quiet and slightly off the beaten past so very relaxing, but was only a ten minute drive from my Rental Car Return lot. The food in the restaurant was hearty and wonderful (don't miss the fresh bread)! Hotel staff was friendly and helpful, answering all of my little questions.
Things you should be aware of before booking: I didn't see an elevator, and I believe the rooms are mostly upstairs, so be sure to ask about that if you are unable to negotiate stairs. Be sure to ask about what to do for checkout because they don't staff the desk until later in the morning. Parking is Valet because of the crowded neighborhood and popular restaurant.
Overall, this is a classy place for a reasonably priced hotel. I will definitely stay again since my experience was positive and it is so convenient to the airport and rental car returns.
