small room but wonderful location

Our room was very small, but perfectly clean. The front desk is not always covered (on two occasions I had to call a second time to get a human being to answer the phone), but when we were there the staff was very friendly. Breakfast is what you'd expect for free. The location is terrific: the hotel is next to Boston's Back Bay train station (Amtrak, commuter rail, subway, as well as Avis and Zip rental cars) and 3-minute walk from Copley Square and and the center of the Back Bay area.

Unclean in Boston!

The site needs to white glove some of these places before including them in recommendations. Great location and friendly people, just don't touch anything!

Great location, suits needs

The staff was very friendly and helpful. My room was warm and cozy. Overall my floor was quiet and helped me prepare for my interviews. The continental breakfast was also very nice. It doesn't have many amenities, but it was an excellent price especially given its perfect location!

Great location, ordinary hotel

The hotel is in the heart of Boston making it very easy to get anywhere in the city via public transport. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are fairly plain. All in all a decent and bargain place to stay in Boston.

Just Okay

Anywhere else, this room would have been worth a third of what I paid. It is nothing special but moderately clean. The TV was the kind with a full tube (not flat screen) without HD. The bathroom is VERY small and there is very little "vanity" storage with just a small shelf above the pedestal sink. The other reviews were right - the bathtub could use some cleaning or updating. I could also clearly hear the conversation taking place in the room next to me through the big, open vent in the shower. Though it wasn't a guarantee, I was able to connect to the Wi-Fi in my room - which was a plus. The location was GREAT. I was in town for a conference 4 blocks away and this room saved me a significant amount of money. I was able to walk all through the Back Bay area and even went for a run around Fenway Park and the Boston Common quite easily. It is also right around the corner from the Back Bay "T" station so very easy to get to from the airport.

Fair

This hotel is desperately in need of a rehab. Everything was very old seeming - the bathroom in particular. I would say everything seemed clean and the continental b'fast was fine but for the money I will not be staying here again
