Parking lot behind the hotel, Great location to start a trip to Boston
We found our door open and unlocked two times during our two night stay!!! The staff was non-existent...... The TV was the only nice feature in this unit.
Front staff were friendly and very accommodating.
Dead rats were in the room, which I found on the second night during my 4 day stay. The microwave did not work, there was dust all over in the rooms. I used a towel to sleep on the bed because I was disgusted with the unclean appearance of the rooms. Not worth the money at all!!!
Manager was very helpful
Still seemed rather expensive for location and age of the building.
We got offered an apartment for all of us instead several hotel rooms for the same price. Cleanliness and room nice. We had a very good stay and no problems
Vicinity to highway. Staff very courteous. Available parking
I needed a room with a private bathroom & for a higher price was easily able to secure one for the night I needed. The location was good since I had appointments and a procedure at a nearby hospital the following day. (10 min cab, 30 min bus). The Inn is also fairly close to Harvard Sq if you don't mind taking a bus. I was able to meet up with friends in Cambridge and later by the Inn. The room $165 with tax was spacious with a shabby chic interior. I felt like I was staying at a friend's. Many apartments in the area (Boston, Cambridge, etc) are rundown so after 6 years living in the city it was nothing new. The room was about the size of a livingrm or studio apt, with 2 beds, several windows, a small kitchen area with table & 2 chairs, and the full bath. If they would just fix it up a bit (new pillows? Winterized bathroom? New ceiling? Soap? Cleaning lady?) than it would be well worth the money & could possibly charge $200+ a night.
Although I'm used to staying in drab, dirty spaces, it's a little disconcerting when you pay $165 a night. You think at that rate the Inn could afford to renovate or at least clean up a bit.. The ceiling was falling apart, there was a hole in the ceiling with a pipe coming out of it, I found a live bug (centipede or something) wiggling across the other pillow when I first layed down and upon further inspection found seeds or ? On the mattress, under the sheet. Also, one of the towels was already used or possibly stained, a couple pillows looked old & gross, the sinks were not thoroughly cleaned, they provide no soap in the bathrm, and there's no heat in the bathrm & it was about 28 degrees that night so I couldn't shower. Initially the room was very warm, but after leaving the door open (upon the request of staff via a note tacked to the bathrm door) a few hrs, I was freezing in my bed and waking up every 45 min or so, uncomfortable & cold.
Bed, location was good enough, handy to the train
Shared bathroom wasnt as clear as it could have been, an very busy always waitin for shower no matter what time I woke up.
Having a separate living room with microwave
First room I was shown smelled of smoke. Room had no curtains, just broken plastic slatted blinds. Noisy. Heating not on during cold night. Microwave smelled of sour milk. Although mostly clean, every fixture/furnishing was shabby-looking. Appallingly overpriced.
the location was good, nice neighborhood. Needed an affordable place to stay at while in Boston. Every room is different, make sure you get a nice one. They'll be happy to show you Staff would help when calling (mostly not at the front desk, but no problem)
old furniture and interior
The place was within walking distance to the T station and offered free parking in back.
Tiny room, shared bath, very dirty, mouse traps visible, old place, reminded me of a night at a YMCA. For the $130 price, I really did expect better.
Victorian style bed room, hardwood floor, fireplace stonework
bathroom! toilet not attached firmly to the ground (wobbles), extremely strong smell of sent candles in the building, noise levels in the evening and around midnight too high
good localization & connections to downtown and Harvard
tidiness, mouse, smell, look, horrible shared restroom - seems like good place for horror movie. Definitely overpriced
A little hotel but very good and with a family ambiance.
The WiFi was very bad in our room.
Proximity to rail line and restaurants
Scary, filthy, smelly, unsafe. paper thin walls and doors. The room reeked of bo and general uncleanliness. There was a long black hair on the bed sheet- I have blonde hair. The sheets seemed laundered but smelled probably due to the mattress. The counters looked like they haven't been wiped down in years as was evident by the pile of crumbs. The after 11pm arriving couple who had a room on a different floor, arrived screaming at each other. Their argument carried on for hours throughout the whole building. We were waiting for gunfire. The shared bathroom looked like had never been cleaned- thick black mold everywhere. The toilet wasn't bolted to the floor, in fact a wad of cardboard under one side and still wobbled. Doors everywhere including inside our room which we couldn't open but nervous someone else could. For the same price nearby, we got a clean room, towels & washclothes, shampoo & soap, private bath, free breakfast, free consistent internet, free parking. Would it really take much to clean up the place???
The place is realy very old!!! The price is good and all hotel i had look before are very more expencive.
It was a scary and cold place. We could not sleep and decided to leave it at 4:30 Am and when we were in our car we felt like home. If you have no place to sleep, I would suggest sleeping in your car and spend the money going to a spa the next day.
Never they clean the room and they dont change towels everyday
The room we were given was of a very good size and even had some kitchen facilities with it. The house it self is a lovely old house in a nice neighbourhood
Everything was old and not well maintained which is a shame as it would not take a lot to make this a lovely place. We had shared bathroom facilities but was too scared to lock the door because of the state of the lock!
It was old , musty, no air conditioning .Gave us two towels, no "small cloths". It was very noisy. I should have known it would be like that due to the ultra budget. Boston needs to have accommodations for the middle class. It is so full of history and there needs to be a way to make it more affordable to visit.
Everything Hight price
The room was clean and large .Good breakfast and coffee .
The desk staff was so-so.He seemed like he had too many irons in the fire and couldn't spend time to answer questions. Also we booked for 3 days and was told we had to leave because the water would shut off for hours which left us in quandary and no help was offered to find other rooms.
The nostalgia of an old Victorian hotel. A bit creepy, felt like I was in a horror movie, but it fit the season
The price. 200$ for one night 6pm to 11 am next morning
