    Free Internet is not Free; A day parking was only for 12 hours and they asked mne to pay 40$ for the next 6 hours. Staff acknowledge costs of things, no effort to solve problems.

    Very good

    This is an older hotel with a small room and bath. The unit was clean and staff very friendly. This is a 3 star hotel at best, but a great location for a game at Fenway or a visit to Boston University. Mta stop is half a block away and is a one transfer to get to Logan Airport on the mta. I would not pay a luxury hotel price for this hotel.

    It was right across the street from Fenway Park.

    Not alot of parking and it costs $28 to park in the tiny garage.

    The close proximity to Fenway Stadium and good night life.

    The fridge froze all my food items after 1 day! Plus it was difficult to warm the room up quickly when it got cold.

    The concierge Josh was so helpful in booking our Duck tour & giving directions on locations we wanted to visit during our stay in Boston. Complimentary breakfast was a very welcome budget saver. Room was spotlessly clean every time we got back. Will be staying again for sure!!!!

    The room safe didn't work & mainenance was not able to fix it.

    It was a great hotel to stay at if you come for a game at Fenway, also close to the T. Our room was very clean and we really enjoyed our stay. We could look out our window and see the stadium. The rooms are very sound proof, you can not hear anyone next to you, also you can not hear the noise from the busy streets outside.

    Very good

    The hotel is old but clean. The bed was comfortable, and the room had all the basic amenities you would want. The staff were friendly and helpful. It's right near the t stop, so it's convenient to downtown Boston.

    This is probably not the fault of the hotel, unless they could build thicker walls. Just as I was falling asleep, some noisy guests in a nearby room (above? Next door? I couldn't tell) came in. I could hear them talking and banging their stuff around. Eventually they quieted down.

    The Staff was helpful and friendly,To our surprise we reserved the room with 2 queen size beds, and we received a suite with 2 bedrooms and a bath it was great as we had 4 women traveling together. The morning breakfast, was great with fresh pastry, a wide selection of fruit,cereal,etc.kept full by a staff working and keeping the area full and clean. The location is 1 block from Fenway Park, and a short walk to shoping and several universities. I would recommend this Hotel over and over again.We had a wonderful experience!

    Wonderful hotel with very helpful staff. Great location.

    Older hotel that was very warm in places and the elevator is slow. Both things that occur in an older building. The hotel staff more than make up for these drawbacks.

    Perfect place near Kenmore "T" station. Easy access to Boston city centre both by foot and train. At least in our room there was a microwave owen and a fridge. We didn't need those but I think they would be useful. The personnel was very kind.

    Fabulous

    Best location for Fenway Park and House of Blues. Good place for walking along Commonwealth and Newbury Streets. Prudential Center is not too far away. Bean Town Trolley picks up right at hotel. Great price compared to other Boston Hotels. Old, but with a little charm if you don't mind older furniture and tv. Microwave and fridge are handy. Continental breakfast was sufficient. Restaurants and services are close by. Housekeeping staff and desk staff were very nice.

    Hot water was a definite problem. Even running for 15 minutes as desk clerk suggested did not produce anything but tepid water in third floor room at night. Morning was okay for hot water. Our room was a little cool but better than our son's room which was very hot. Both families were booked on the third floor. Our room was on the end and was roomy. Their room was small and right across from loud construction being done to replace heating/cooling unit. Several rooms on the third floor were being renovated. When son's family was moved to a room on sixth floor, their room was much better.

    Superb

    This hotel is a good value for money. It includes breakfast at no charge, which is something that I always appreciate.

    I was told that some bedrooms can be a bit noisy, although my room was quite ok in this regards.
