This is an exterior corridor hotel in a residential neighborhood on Commonwealth Ave. and provides free parking. The location is wonderful: a half a block from the Green Line and walk-able to great areas such as Washington Square and Coolidge Corner, to name just a couple. I highly recommend this as an affordable lodging when visiting Boston.
Check-in was extremely efficient and friendly. The room was large and comfortable, with windows overlooking a nice city neighborhood view. The bathroom was small and a little drafty from the older window. The exterior corridor layout proved difficult as there was substantial snow and mud tracking onto the room and no good way to handle the mess (we resorted to using a towel.) The beds were extremely comfortable and the heating was satisfactory after we figured it out. The room also had a kitchenette: refrigerator, microwave, sink, and coffee maker. This would be wonderful for a longer stay (we were only there 2 nights.) A free breakfast is provided off the lobby, offering waffles, yogurt, cereal, baked goods, eggs, and sausage...perfect start to the day.
The only reason this did not get 4 bubbles is that the water in the shower did not get above lukewarm. We probably could have switched rooms, but it was not worth the hassle. I will check the water temp before we settle in next time. Yes, we do intend to return!
