My husband and I travel to Boston a couple times each year to go to Red Sox games, and we stay at the Samuel Sewall Inn, or its sister B&B across the street, the Bertram Inn. The rooms are lovely and well-appointed. The buildings themselves are beautiful with amazing details in the woodwork and the stained glass windows. The bathrooms can be a bit small, depending on which room you reserve, but they are always clean, The breakfast is good too, there are usually a couple hot dishes, assorted cereals, yogurt, and fruit. Addiitionally, there always snacks available, like granola bars, fruit, and cookies. During nice weather, there is outside seating available. I have found the employees to be helpful, giving some suggestions for restaurants, etc.
The inn is located in Brookline, just outside the Boston city line, and within walking distance to Fenway Park - about a 20 minute walk. You don't realize you've left Boston at all. Access to the T (Boston's train/subway system) is a block away - so convenient. The neighborhood is great, lots of restaurants, bars, bookstores, etc. close by, but not close enough to hear any noise. The street is quiet, and well-maintained homes surround this B&B. My husband and I have frequently walked around the neighborhood at night, it never feels unsafe, and the streets are well-lit.
My only negative is that you have to pay for parking. I don't understand why they do that - I am paying for a room, and you can't include the parking space? The last time we stayed, I believe it was $15 per night. I think they should waive this.
