Best Western Plus Boston Hotel

Reviewed October 26, 2013

If you need to stay in the South End of Boston, the Best Western is probably your best choice. It is located on a busy highway, so it can be noisy. The free breakfast buffet is very good and the hot food is freshly prepared.

We chose the Roundhouse Suites as an affordable accommodation option with the benefit of free parking. Boston is an expensive city to stay in and accommodation with parking is extremely limited. We had the benefit of an upgrade to a suite (instead of the standard room we'd booked), and we found it clean, well equipped and spacious. The hotel staff were helpful and the breakfast offered a good range of items. The free parking was, of course, excellent and we also appreciated the free WiFi and small hotel gym.

The only downside is that this is in a slightly run down area, south of the city centre. The free hotel shuttle may help with that but we didn't find it easy/convenient to use and instead walked to public transport stops during the day and made do with the limited near by food places at night. In all, we would stay here again and recommend it as a good value option but you should be prepared to travel a little to get into Boston's centre. If you don't need parking, there may be options at a similar price closer in.

My husband and I booked this hotel for its relatively low rate, as our visit happened to be during the Red Sox playoffs. What a nice surprise! Staff were helpful and friendly! Everyone seemed to be in a good mood. Liquor Land is a few blocks away. After dinner at the nearby "The Gallows" with our daughter and son-in-law, we opened a bottle of wine in our comfortable sitting room and caught a little of the game on one of the large screen TVs in our suite. Staff kindly let our guests park in the lot for a few hours gratis. Fresh baked cookies at 5:30 were fun. Breakfast offered many choices. The shuttle made up for the not-so-great location and we definitely will consider a repeat stay here when we visit our kids again!

Dear suzyseashell,

I am so glad you chose to stay with us and that we exceeded your expectations. Our spacious suites have much to offer with the 42 inch flat screens and the living area.

We do hope you return with your kids as there is so much to do in Boston!

Room was ready as reserved. Desk very efficient. Clean room. Nice sitting area with frig, micro and bar sink. Enjoyed the ease of free parking in their lot even on the most crowded weekend in Boston (HOTC regatta).

A nice hotel in a good location. The hotel provides free parking for guests as well. The rooms are spacious and clean. The hotel gym, while small (more like a fitness room), got the job done. On the whole, a fine place. Sure, it's not a Four Seasons, but I had no complaints.

This hotel does go above and beyond to make your stay pleasant. Not in the greatest neighborhood, but you forget that once inside. Street sounds can be noisy, but the hotel is great overall. I like that every room is a suite and quite roomy, room to spread out. Refrigerator, microwave and "kitchen" area provides what you need and works well in the room. Nice that the sink area is outside of bathroom so anyone can use.

Dear TripAdvisor Member,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am glad you enjoyed our spacious suites. Being a female I agree with you about having the sink area outside of the bathroom so you can dry your hair while another takes a shower.

We hope to see you soon!
