Good spot for a short Boston visit

I stayed one night while visiting Boston for a baby shower. The room was small, and it could use a little renovation (a few coats of paint, re-caulking in the bathroom), but it met my needs for the visit: it was clean and safe, the bed was comfy, and the shower had great hot water! The free breakfast is basic but good. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would probably stay here for 1-2 nights max, and I wouldn't stay there for business because there's only wifi in public spaces (not in the rooms). But if I'm in town for fun and need a cheap but good hotel, I'll stay here again!

Ok for a few nights

The hotel was in a good location but needed updating. Very old fashioned and tired looking.

This hotel is in a great location, with friendly staff and a nice looking interior. We only wanted a clean, comfy place to sleep overnight, and that's what we got.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

While there are many great places to eat in Boston along the Freedom Trail, the best value is a little sandwich shop across the street from the Old North Church. It's called Caffe Lil Italy. There is a nice selection of food, reasonable prices, and a vey friendly server.

Sight seeing

If you are looking for a place to stay to go sight seeing then this is the hotel for you. The staff was pleasant. Even though the building is very old, its an ok place to stay if you don't want to spend a lot but still need a decent room for the night. Pretty close to the sights we wanted to see :)

Good Value, Good Location

This is an old hotel. It gives you an nostalgic feeling. Overall, the room is comfortable. It is clean for an old hotel. The location is perfect. I would recommend this hotel for a business trip. For leisure travel, the room is a little bit too small.

A day in Boston

I wanted a place close to shopping and that's what I got. The hotel is large and grand, but needs a makeover. The paint is chipping, there was mold and noisy vents. The bed was quite uncomfortable, but it was only for a night. For an overnight, I might try again due to the more reasonable price than the other Boston hotels in that area.

Good location. Very old overall. Run down rooms... Feel like you need to wear your shoes around the room/shower. Bed was clean.

A pleasant hotel in a good location.

Attended a trade show here and found location, staff, facilities and food all a very good value for the money. The staff was quite friendly and helpful.

Clean, Quiet, Basic

Boston Common Hotel was everything I wanted from a hotel for my trip, but I didn't want much. Mainly it had to be inexpensive, in a location close to the train, and reasonably clean and quiet. The staff are very nice, and the price was right; I really liked the location, not directly ON Copley Square but only a block away. There is NO in-room internet, but my room was close enough to the "common areas" (where there is wifi) that I could pick up internet from the room. The room was small, but clean and suited my needs. Very comfortable bed, spacious bathroom, decent desk and television. The breakfast in the mornings was basic but edible, bakery goods, cereal, and fruit.
