We stayed only one night in The Beech Tree Inn while visiting relatives. As some others have noted, it is sort of a hybrid, with less personal attention than many B&Bs provide. However, when we did need to speak with staff members, they were pleasant and helpful. The beverages and baked goods that are available at all times were welcome, and welcoming. Also, the Inn provides toothbrushes and toothpaste for those who may have forgotten theirs, in addition to the usual soap and shampoo.
Overnight parking on Brookline streets is apparently illegal, so the Inn has spaces available for $7 per night. The Inn is well located, a short walk from mass transit and restaurants and shops at Coolidge Corners. It is also a short walk from a bike/walking path along a river.
This Inn may be less personal than many B&Bs, but it will never be confused with a hotel. There are many charming touches, such as a small booklet in the room containing recipes for some of the baked goods they make for guests.
We were in Room 7A. It was well decorated and comfortable, although the bathroom was quite small.
If we need a place to stay in the area in the future, we would not hesitate to return.
