“Good value”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

This was our first time at the Chandler Inn and we stayed here because we were meeting up with our son, his wife and toddler and they had stayed here before.
It is in the Back Bay area, so a short way to walk to the Back Bay station, so we liked the location. We tend to walk a lot in Boston, so this was very convenient to many places.
It is definitely a modest hotel, but very welcoming. There is complimentary coffee/tea, etc in the small lobby and free wi-fi in the rooms.
We had difficulty with our tv and they came right away to get it working. The bed was very comfortable and we had a corner room which was nice.
Our only "complaint" was that the bathroom was very very small. It barely had room for the toilet/small sink and shower. There was a small shelf above the sink for a few items, but it needed more storage space. My husband barely had room to turn it was so small. All in all, we liked the hotel and compared to other larger hotels, it was a much better value.

Room Tip: Try a corner room.

Staying at The Chandler Inn was a pleasant experience. My friend and I were extremely pleased at it's location because there were a lot of great aces within walking distance. The rooms were spotlessly clean, a bit small, but then again we did not spend any significant amount of time in the room. I was bummed that the restaurant/bar attached to The Chandler Inn was under renovation. The only other thing I was slightly displeased with is there are no real food service within the hotel. They have a Keurig-type thing in the lobby where you could make complimentary coffee/tea/hot chocolate but if you want breakfast before going out for the day you have to get it elsewhere. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I would stay at The Chandler Inn again.

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary trip and it was great. Small mix up with the room but Mark quickly fixed it. Staff was great and room was really clean. Yes the rooms were a little small but we weren't planning on moving in, so for tourists it's great. Nice walking neighborhood

While the rooms were just a slight bit small, everything else was wonderful. The staff were helpful, the location great, and the price very affordable. I had a fantastic time and would certainly consider staying there again if I am ever in Boston in the South End. The internet connectivity was iffy during peak hours but nothing serious. Overall, this was a fantastic hotel to spend 6 days at as I did.

My co-worker and I went for business purposes and found this to be a great place to stay because of the location and affordable price. We stayed for two nights. The rooms were very small, but clean, and staff were pleasant and helpful. No real amenities other than a coffee/tea/hot chocolate area at the front desk but many places to eat close by.There was parking on the street (if you were lucky enough to find a spot) free until 10:00 am or a parking garage within walking distance. Chandler Inn validates tickets for a discount. Definitely worth looking into.

I went there for spring break with some friends and I had a pleasant stay. The room was clean, staff was friendly and it had a great location with a affordable price. The bathroom was a bit small, but had a large stand up shower.

Had a very pleasant one night stay at the Chandler Inn. The rooms are small but well organized, efficient and modern. I found the hotel clean and quiet. It's in good location within walking distance to many Boston attractions. I would recommend the Inn and will be certain to check them out the next time I need to stay in the city (I live in the North Shore area of MA and work in the city). Nice place!
