“great location, right price”
Reviewed April 11, 2007

The Bed & Bagel is probably the most convenient B&B in town for travelers on a budget. I stayed there in April while in Boston to look at colleges and you are within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and the T downtown. This is not what I would call a conventional property - like the reviewer above stated, there are a number of longterm residents (mostly doctors/students from the city's hospitals) and the parking is unusual in that you do have to leave your car keys with the manager. But it is clean and comfortable.

I booked the Bed and Bagel B&B online for 5 nights, not realizing that simply filling in an online information/availability request amounted to a contract ~ according to the manager. When we got there, we didn't like the place. Some of the B&B rooms must have housed long-term residents. People left the doors to their rooms open and were lolling on their beds watching us as we walked by. The shared bathroom was clean, but opened immediately off the kitchen. Parking was typical Boston parking; we pulled into a driveway and a car parked behind us. The manager wanted us to leave our car keys in case the person in front of us needed to get out before morning. We didn't agree. It was raining and late so we stayed the first night, but decided to go to a hotel for the remaining nights. Another surprise: Unlike in a hotel, you don't have 24-hour advance cancellation -- it's 2 weeks! So we were stuck, although apparently the manager did fill the room for a couple of nights so we didn't have to pay for all 5 nights. We stayed at a hotel 20 miles south of Boston (the Clarion on the beach at Hull) and it was worth the drive. This is the first unpleasant experience I've ever had with a B&B.

  • Liked — Convenient location
  • Disliked — Lack of privacy; bathroom next to kitchen; crowded parking and crowded inside
  • Tips/Secrets — This place, like every place in Boston, gets booked early. We waited till the last minute and couldn't get anything better in the area, plus I had never seen this place in person. If you go to Boston or anyplace nearby, do book far in advance for the best choices.
