Very quiet, comfortable bed, great shower and the parking was tight but it worked. The drive to the medical area was also great, for a person who doesn't like city driving. The staff was very helpful, always there to help you.

This hotel was in a great location of Brookline, close to downtown Boston by train. Staff was all friendly and a nice breakfast was served. The only issue was parking. They have a driveway with about 4 spots, which if you park there you leave your keys in a bowl for the staff to shuffle cars. Initially, we did not...

Staff quite helpful. Pleasant atmosphere and adequate breakfast. Kitchen renovations should have started after 10am instead of 7:30am and a voucher for coffee/snacks would have been appreciated since this was not available throughout the day as offerred on check in.

We stayed for four nights in this charming B&B. Our room on the third floor was comfortable and quiet. The sleeping comfort was great. At breakfast we got the best bagels which we got on our four weeks trip. There was a comfortable sitting room on the second floor where you could relax by some coffee or tea plus cookies,...

I agree with many other reviewers that it was odd that we never met the owners. Our room was small with a full size bed and very small private bath. Pluses are the location was perfect for us. Negatives are the bed not being very firm and the sheets/covers dingy. Thin toilet paper is always a pet peeve of mine...

The impression I got when booking was that the owners would be running the B&B, instead there was a series of (lovely) students who would come in every day to check the guests and prepare breakfast. When I first arrived, there was no-one there and I had no idea what to do. Afterwards I discovered that an envelope had been...

Dear Susan, We are so glad you enjoyed meeting our lovely staff! To address your concerns, we (the owners) do live on site and the property is never unattended. We find that the self-check-in system is efficient for many travelers, as it helps them ensure access to their room no matter when they arrive. We encourage all potential guests to...

Located in a nice neighborhood close to transportation, shops, restaurants, groceries and walking distance to Back Bay attractions such as Fenway Park. The rooms were clean and beds were very comfortable. The staff was friendly, helpful and accommodating. We got the wrong dates for our rooms and didn't notice until a week before our arrival. Jessica was wonderful in getting...

room #12 has 2 twin beds, very comfortable. Room is quite cozy, but we were in boston to row, and spent very little time in the room, so it was totally adequate. The personnel were very attentive and friendly, and accommodated an early check in without question. Shared bathroom was clean and spacious, and perhaps because of the odd hours...
