“Good location, needs TLC”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

We stayed at the 1750 Beacon Inn for Parents weekend at BC. We have stayed in some historic B&B's in upstate NY and MI so wasn't expecting newness and luxury, but 1750 was disappointing. The entire place needs some TLC. Our room was carpeted, (didn't realize when booking as I needed a king bed with shower), which was a problem with allergies (this was a first). The carpet in the halls, stairs and room need upgrading. The wallpaper was peeling off the wall and hung piecemeal. The bathroom needed serious work both for function and aesthetics. We did not eat the offered continental breakfast, but it is grab and go as there is no place to sit. The place could be gem with an overhaul. On the plus side, the staff was nice and the location is in a safe neighborhood convenient to walking to BC. Unfortunately, I would not recommend unless there were some renovations.

We have stayed in some really nice B&B's in Crested Butte CO, Whitewater WI, and Door County, WI. We booked two rooms here. This place was run down and not very clean. Breakfast was cold cereal and package breads/pastries and no place to sit to eat. The place needs some serious attention, like paint, floor refinishing, and new carpet runners. The beds were not comfortable--worn out, threadbare linens, the floors were not clean--large dust balls behind the headboards of the bed, hair in the tub and dirty wash cloth hanging over the tub at check in, no ice, no cups or glasses in the bathroom or room, no irons in the room--very austere. The pictures on the Web are misleading. This place was like a cheap rooming house at a high price. There are some good things to say though: friendly staff, parking but was expensive and should be free given the poor quality of the B&B, in a great location and the T station is right nearby. However, we would not stay here again and would not recommend it to anyone.

Beacon I, Manager at Beacon Inn 1750, responded to this review, 2 October 2013
The Beacon Inn at 1750 is located in a historic brownstone over 100 years old. It retains much of the original charm and character including ornamental fireplaces and hardwood floors. The guest's comments about the work needed throughout the building are unfounded. The two rooms this guest were both renovated last spring with fresh paint and plaster and newly refinished floors. We use only high-thread-count sheets and high-quality pillow-top mattresses and most guests comment that the beds are very comfortable. As advertised, we serve a light continental breakfast consisting of bagels, English muffins, and an assortment of pastries in addition to cold and hot cereal and coffee and tea available throughout the day.

We sincerely apologize if there were any issues with the housekeeping of the room. The host on duty when this guest checked in only received one minor complaint about dust behind the headboard of the bed, but as soon as he was informed the area in question was promptly cleaned that same evening while the guest went out to dinner. The other issues were never mentioned and if there had been any additional problems brought to our attention we would have immediately addressed them in accordance with our policy for dealing with guest requests and complaints.

The pictures on our website were taken before some of the room renovations and the only substantial difference between the rooms advertised and the rooms available is that the older wallpaper in some rooms has been replaced with fresh plaster and paint. We stand by the quality of our rooms and amenities and our rates are extremely competitive for the area. We do not believe these comments represent the experience of the majority of our guests.

After moving our son into his "House of Horrors" in Allston, MA my husband & I went to Block Island for much needed R&R, no sooner had our ferry arrived when disaster struck in Boston & we needed to make a mad dash back to the city. On line looking for a place to stay near the Allston area I was thrilled to find The Beacon Inn. Truly just what we needed. Nothing fancy, but the staff was super friendly & helpful. The rooms were clean, the bed was comfy, the shower was great & the price was right. Looking for a 5 star experience, then never go to a small bed & breakfast. For us, this was perfect! Location, location, location! Loved everyone we dealt with there & by phone. Hope to stay there again!

This was our second time to stay with Beacon Inn. Our first was in the other facility, and this time the 1750 location. The staff was very friendly and helpful.It is close to the T for easy travel.Parking is very tight, so it is best to go without a car if possible. Continental breakfast is small but adequate.

Room Tip: The T is heard in the rooms to the front but not too obnoxious. feels like you are in a city :)

Really easy to go downtown the train station is in front of the hotel. The room are clean and spacious but the beds are not comfortable and the bathroom need a lots of renovation. Overall is a good price for Boston in a very nice neighborhood. Service is good and breakfast are Ok but a dining room would not be luxury because right now there is no place to eat except the stair outside. Anyhow we enjoyed our stay and would recommended to our friend

Great Location. Hosts were very nice, informative, and welcoming. Room was great, clean, and bed was a dream! Want very much to return with my girlfriend for more site seeing! Convenience of train right out in front, lets you get down to Boston quickly. Neighborhood was very clean, bars and restaurants in walking distance.

Beacon Inn 1750 has a very old Boston feel to it. Very vintage. A great little place to stay while visiting Boston. Very close to the train, bars+convenience stores are in walking distance.

I really liked how they kept breakfast snacks out all day long.
