I stayed in October,2012 when I was in Boston for a conference. Compared to a hotel, the cost is reasonable , considering the excellent location, nice rooms and the parking space that I reserved at additional cost (worth it).
I was able to walk to everything during my stay in Boston. The room was very nice and comfortable. The proprietor was friendly. This is a great place to stay for the independent traveler. You are basically on your own with some nice, basic breakfast stuff available just off the room.
This is a B+B I will return to on future Boston travels. I will probably alternate with Encore B+B (also nice) for sake of variety.
