My wife and I stayed three nights and were very pleased. I know we will stay again. None of the local B&Bs accommodate children which for us was great as we left the kids at the grandparents house and took a short walk to our perfectly clean and comfortable room. The king room on the first floor is large and well kept. As other reviews have mentioned, there is a private bath for this room, but you do have to cross the entry hall to access it. This was no problem during our visit, but I would recommend to Steven that providing robes would be a nice touch and help anyone with a concern. Do not let the bathroom put you off of staying here, it was not a problem, plus the bathroom is a good size, very clean, and was perfect for us. The location is ideal for seeing any sights in Boston, the walk to Davis Sq is easy and the 77 bus drops you close as well. When you stay walk up to Davis Sq after dinner and get ice cream at JP Licks, you can usually find some street entertainment there as well. Safe, quiet, clean, and wonderful ... Oh and parking on the street was easy!
