I stayed here for one night a few weeks ago. I though this B&B (compared to two others where I stayed in Boston) was incredibly good value for money. It is a beautiful building in a great area of Boston. The room I had was just so nicely decorated, the bed was incrediby comfortable, the linen was excellent quality, and it was very very clean. It was also really quiet. I shared a kitchen with the next room, and was a great range of great quality food available for breakfast. The bathroom was very spacious, clean and modern. The owner was so helpful as I booked last minute. If this is in your price range then it is a really great place to stay and much much nicer than a hotel - I think you would be paying $3-400 to stay in a hotel that has as nice a feel/quality. Boston is an expensive place to stay, and it's probably worth spending a little more to stay in this B&B than others that are in the $140 price range. The extra $50 I payed to stay here was so worth it - I had the best night's sleep and it felt very luxurious. I would definitely stay here again.
