I had the good fortune of staying at the Longwood Inn for ten nights last October while my husband was in the hospital unexpectedly. What a blessing the experience was during a trying time. We have 2 cottages we rent during the summer on Lake Champlain so we tend to be fairly critical of places we stay and I was very pleased with staying here. Was surprised to see a review that complained of it being run down for that is not my observation at all. The rooms are quite charming and if you do share a bath, it is with only one other room. Private baths are also available. The kitchen is modern, clean and homey. The inn is located between the Longwood "D" line T stop and Harvard Street where there are great restaurants in every price range. Just a short walk to either. Eat out for lunch and you'll have plenty to bring back and put in their kitchen fridge for dinner. A short walk to Trader Joe's provides an excellent source for prepared foods and fresh ingredients to cook yourself. The kitchen is fully equipped with plenty of storage in cabinets, large fridge, pots, dishes, etc. all provided for guests' use. The staff from the manager to housekeeping are extremely friendly and make you feel like you're visiting friends. The manager, John goes out of his way to help you with any info you might need. The kitchen is a great place to meet people from far and near and I made a new probably lifelong friend there from Germany. The area is extremely safe for walking even in the late evening and it is an easy walk to the Longwood Medical Complex. It is a beautiful old well-maintained Victorian in a residential neighborhood with beautiful homes. The FREE parking in the rear of the inn is a great bonus. You can just park and use the T or walk wherever you need to go. I do not recommend driving in Boston if you are not really familiar with it. It can be really scary. You can easily acess this inn by taking I95 to Beacon St. or Rt.9 to Harvard St. to Longwood Ave. and get to the inn w/o navigating inner Boston traffic. If arriving by air, bus or train, you can easily get there by mass transit. Since we now travel to Boston for medical reasons monthly we are able to access the Hospitality Homes, a non-profit program for people there for medical reasons. But if I ever couldn't get a room in one of their homes, I would definitely stay here, a great home away from home.
