Chandler Inn
Ranked #74 of 85 Hotels in Boston
Reviewed January 31, 2014

The Chandler Inn is one of those places that's got it just about right. It is a reasonably priced, very clean property with no frills. That bathroom is amazing, with a stand up shower. My room had two single beds with mattresses that were too firm for my taste. This is a small property that is priced at a value for the area.

When booking keep in mind:
The rooms are on the small side and you will probably hear a little more noise than you'd expect at other properties. If you're looking for a good deal, with few frills (other than the shower) this is the place for you. The rooms here are not for people who plan to camp out in their hotel room. They are for people who need a place to crash at the end of a long day at work or seeing the sights in Boston.

Room Tip: Ask for a single if you can. The doubles are built for the shorter people of a by-gone era.

Although the room itself was good enough, one of the main reasons to pick this hotel was the free WiFi advertised. But the signal in our room was so weak that it was impossible to connect and no solution or compensation was given at the frontdesk.

Otherwise, the hotel was fine, good heater, great location and good price, but we felt somewhat cheated because of the internet thing.

Room Tip: No Wifi signal in room 607

Booked through Kayak and got a really good price, room is larger than expected, clean and nicely decorated. Hotel is in a really nice area in easy walking distance of back bay station. Staff are supremely helpful, room is clean and comfortable, shower is excellent. WiFi is a little slow but perfectly serviceable. In fact would be perfect if only the people on the room next door would stf up

I visited Boston in Jan 2014 and decided to spend 3 nights in Chandler.

1st night:
- Very loud bar/club on first floor and I could not sleep until 2:45AM because people are yelling and laughing
- Heater was not working. It was when the winter storm hit.

2nd night:
- No hot water for shower and bathroom from 8AM to 11:30PM (again, winter storm hits)
- Heater still broken so asked front desk for room change, second room has heater but was way too hot and I couldn't breath. Changed to 3rd room, still no heater
Note: the heater in this hotel is central heater and you CANNOT change the temperature. The second room was way too hot that I was still sweating with clothes off and sleeping without a blanket.
- Bar still loud until AM

3rd night:
- Again, no hot water in bathroom since I woke up and until I came back at night, still no estimated time for the fix at 10PM
- Rude front desk asked me to take cold water shower and his attitude was very rude and indifferent about the situation. I called later to ask when it will be fixed, still very very rude like he does not care about his job anymore

I spent two nights at the Chandler Inn and it was great. The staff is very accommodating. Rooms are a bit tights, but so is everything else in the heart of Boston. We pretty much walked to everything or took a cab, so it's definitely in a great location. Would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here for a few days around the holidays with my husband and our small dog (< 20 lbs). The staff were very friendly. The rooms are truly small with little space for furniture other than the bed, and it was a tight squeeze for the three of us! Great location and very convenient for everything we were looking for, though.

We were originally slated to stay on the 2nd floor. Since the inn is directly above a bar, it ended up being too noisy, and the staff kindly relocated us to a higher floor. After moving we also learned there is smoking permitted on the 2nd floor, so just FYI when you're booking!

Room Tip: 2nd floor is noisy at night; also smoking permitted on 2nd floor

We stay at the Chandler Inn every year when we come to Boston to visit family for the holidays. It's the best deal in town. Clean, comfortable rooms and an easy walk to downtown shops and restaurants. Also, Fritz Bar is right downstairs which is very convenient. Fritz also serves a wonderful breakfast on weekends. Highly recommend Chandler Inn!
