This was a lovely inn with very friendly staff. The price was good for the area. We had the interior room with no windows, which was small but still very nice. We would have liked to have more places to stow our stuff, such as shelves in the bathroom. There was a mini fridge accessible to all guests with wine and beer for purchase (honor system) and I assume small food items could have been stored there. There was a hot tub on the roof with a beautiful view, however it was just warm and while it gradually heated, after 45 min it had not broken 100 degrees F. There are a LOT of stairs here, so be sure to ask what floor your room would be on if that is a problem.
They were very willing to accommodate food intolerances, however when the breakfast staff changed between our first and second morning, the second person was not informed and had to be asked for items. There was no type of dairy free spread available for toast or boiled eggs...when I asked for mayo I was given a bottle that had expired months ago. I asked for cereal and was given some that was stale and did not pour out. Once the GF pastries were located, the remaining ones were sent on with me which I appreciated. Basically, they tried to accommodate my difficult dietary requirements, but the communication fell through on the 2nd day and some details were overlooked. Unless an inn or B&B has a commercial kitchen license, they cannot do more than warm food, so at all such establishments in the area you can expect a continental breakfast like pastries and oatmeal.
The location is very quiet and residential, however very near many fine restaurants and shops. You can take the subway from the airport then walk to the inn, however it is quite a hike with all of your luggage. Not terrible, but more than a block or two. We walked all over Boston proper from this location.
Overall it is a very nice place with helpful staff, but I can't quite give it a perfect score with a few little disappointments.
The proprietor did offer a special service of assisting friends who wanted to send us flowers by ordering them and designing them to go with our room. They would provide that kind of special touch that made you feel very at home there.
