I stayed here on a business trip on which my husband joined for some fun time as well. Overall, I found the Inn to be an excellent choice. It's in an excellent location, very close to the T and easy to access with a number of excellent restaurants close by. The staff were very helpful and it was no problem to leave my bags when I checked in very early and left quite late. Breakfast was good and plentiful and people came and left so the dining room was never crowded. Throughout the day, there were snacks in the kitchen and I loved snagging a fresh-baked cookie on my way out the door. Yum!
I stayed in two rooms as the one I wanted did not open up until later in my stay. I first had Room one, which used to be the porch. The bathroom was down the hall and shared with another room. We rarely wanted it at the same time and a robe was provided. This was no problem at all. The bed was comfortable and I enjoyed watching a movie from their large collection one night. The only problem is the amount of light and noise that enter the room as the sun rises. The shutters by no means block it. The earplugs took care of the noise, but the face mask was no match for the sunlight.
We then moved to Room Ten, which was quieter, but even brighter as the curtains do not pull shut. Also, due to the positioning of the TV, if you want to watch it, it's hard. They had made sure we were aware it was only a double bed, but I only thought of the width, not the length. It is shorter than a queen bed. If you are taller than 5'9", I would not recommend it; my husband was uncomfortable.
Overall, I fund the Inn to be a good value in a good location. Catching the T to go downtown was very easy and a staff member was always available to help with any questions. The place was very clean and had good and varied food. I would stay here again without hesitation. The things I mentioned are just to make folks aware, not to scare them off.
