I stayed at the Burbank Rose for two nights during the summer season. I found it a pleasant place to stay, and very reasonably priced for the summer.
The owner, Brian, negotiated a deal with me as a single traveler so that I could get a good rate.
There is a nice sitting room/tv room upstairs to relax in the evenings and watch movies. This is also the morning breakfast room. Breakfast cereals, fruit, tea, coffee, sodas, and yogurt are available for an evening snack or a morning meal.
If there is any caveat, it would be that the front of the house faces Memorial Boulevard, which has a lot of traffic in the summer. You should pick a room in the back of the house for that reason. I picked a room in the back, and it had a central air unit, which drowned out most of the traffic noise.
I would stay here again. It is right around the corner from the Thames Street shops and a stone's throw from the wharves and boat tours.
Very comfortable and clean.
