If you need to be in the medical district of Boston, you can't beat the location and this place should definitely work for you. It's kind of a funky place as you wind around a bit to get to reception. Lots of options for eating, it's actually attached to a food court (Longwood Grille is great) and there's a Starbucks across the street, one another block away and other restaurants/fast food places within a short distance. As other reviews have indicated, the AC was noisy, I found housekeeping service to be a bit spotty (in replacing things, the place was certainly clean enough) and my room seemed really dark, even with all of the lights on.
Although I never saw a sign indicating it, the airport shuttle driver and other locals called it a "Best Western," which may help others who could get it confused with the other Longwood Inn on Longwood Avenue. Also, I swear the website said the healthclub you can pay to use was a block away but I was told when I got there that it's a 7 minute walk. And it's $10/day.
So this is a good basic place if you're in the area for medical appointments.
