The Samuel Sewall Inn
Ranked #9 of 11 Brookline B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 3, 2014

This is a really darn comfortable inn. The furniture is quirky-quaint - but the place is quiet, the staff are friendly, the room is as clean and as organized as a five star hotel.

If I want to be churlish my room didn't have a desk. Other rooms do and if this matters to you ask when you book. But value is fabulous and there really isn't anything that I would change.

This B&B made a recent stay in Boston extremely good. The room (after changing to a larger one) was just large enough to spend a little time in doing work; the bathroom simple. A wonderful plus was a real breakfast that changed daily that had great variety. In addition the staff of the Inn was consistently helpful. There were some too little heat, then too much heat issues but these were easily resolved. In walking distance of the T. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a larger suite.

I went to college in Boston and this was my first trip back to Boston since graduation. I found this place on living social. It was so convenient to the T and was an easy walk to go to Fenway (GO SOX!). The innkeepers were very nice and the breakfasts were great everyday!

The room was a traditional Victorian room (lots of florals!). It was comfortable and had tons of charm!

I would definitely recommend this B&B!

We love this inn! We stayed here recently when my daughter and I were in the area for a family wedding and college visit. The inn itself is beautiful and the beds are so very comfortable! The location is a two-minute walk from the train system that will get you easily to any part of Boston and nearby cities. The breakfasts are amazing : fresh fruit, delicious yogurt, scrambled eggs with lox and cream cheese, white chocolate/raspberry pancakes - enough said! The staff was exceedingly helpful and warm. I can't wait to find a reason to visit again - soon!

We have stayed at the Samuel Sewall Inn when we visited Boston. A place close enough, yet away, with comfort and relaxation attitude. A very rich breakfast sets you up for the day, and in addition you get free hot beverages and snacks all day through. Rooms a bit small and lack of lobby does reduce the overall rating, plus charging for parking per day is outrageous.
Overall a good experience.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Within an easy walk from Fenway in a super safe neighborhood. Also have the T within a 2 minute walk. A wonderful old building with great rooms. Lots of character. So nice to finally find a B and B with a king size bed. We had room 14 and it was awesome.

Room Tip: I don't think they would have a "bad" room , from what I saw.

We had a NCL cruise leaving from Boston so came a few days early to see the sites. We selected this location because the Boston MFA and the Gardner Museum were within walking distance. The innkeepers are probably the strongest reason for recommending this accommodation as they did everything possible to assist including rescuing a suitcase we had inadvertently taken with to the Boston Cruise Terminal. Their sister B & B is across the street and would also be worth of investigating...Bertram Inn. The breakfast was quite good with the eating area quite cozy...across the street it appeared to be larger. The 2 museums mentioned are just over 1/2 hour walk and strongly recommend you contact the inn in advance to book passes to either museum to save the $25 per person entry fee.
