Everything thing was great except room size

The location, continental breakfast, and friendly staff were outstanding. The room was a bit small, including the double bed. In fact, there was no room to get of bed on one side! The bathroom, also small and outdated, was at least functional; it was about the size of a cruise ship bathroom.

Alternative to high Boston prices

When planning my annual Boston trip this year, I found that Boston hotel rates had skyrocketed, with far fewer budget alternatives in or near the Back Bay. The Milner Hotel met my needs this year. Excellent location 1 block from the Theater District, 2 blocks from Boston Common, 3 blocks to the T etc. My room was small and faced an interior light well--not the street--but it was adequate, clean, and quiet.

small places

My stay had no significant problems. The location is very good, and price is very reasonable for proximity to downtown locations. The room was very small, really only fit for one. The breakfast service was very cramped, not enough seating, poor traffic flow especially with a bottle neck where people were trying to get in, and others some with food trying to get out to find tables somewhere else, and others standing around in the way wondering how to respond to lack of tables.

Cramped and dated.

Got a deal on the room and it was a good $100 a night cheaper than other hotels in the area. Room 510 was very small and cramped. The air conditioner blew air directly on the bed so we had to keep turning it up and down. The bathroom tiles were chipped and the grout in the shower was eating away. I gave it three stars because there was a free continental breakfast, a computer with a printer to use and the staff was friendly. If you can get it cheap like I did and you don't need much than it's an ok to place to stay. Otherwise don't waste you're money.

goode location, limited amenities

Travelling from England I was looking for a reasonably priced hotel in central Boston and chose the Milner. For its locationm, close to theatres and public transport, it proved ideal. There is no restaurant and braekfast has to be self-prepared but I found that acceptable. My single room was very cramped but bed was comfortable. No facilities (apart from bed) to relax or read or write. Staff at reception pleasant and helpful. On final day it was useful to leave luggage at hotel before transit to airport. I would use the Milner again.

Just OK

I was in Boston for PAX East and this was one of the only hotels with rooms available. Every hotel in Boston is expensive, so I can't complain too much about the price, but for over $200 per night, this was asking a bit much. This is an older, more run down hotel, and it shows. The windows from my room faced the brick walls of an alleyway, and that's about it. The room was small and the bed was just OK. Nothing extraordinary about it. The TV and bathroom fan didn't work. There was no microwave or mini fridge in the room itself. You had to go downstairs for that. On a positive note, their breakfast offering was quite good, and the location is close to several train stops. You're also within walking distance from several destinations, including the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.

Nice hotel at a nice location

I had a lovely time at the Milner Hotel. It doesn't have the same grandeur you see from the big chains, with their immense lobbies and gold trim. Instead, it's a cute little building, but the staff was very helpful, our rooms were cleaned well and we got all the amenities we expected, plus Wifi and a small breakfast spread that we didn't expect.

Boston downtown getaway

This was my first trip to Boston so I was unsure what hotel I should get. Everything near downtown was so expensive. Then I found The Milner. I won't sugar coat it, the room is tiny but that only adds to the charm of this stay. It was comfy, cozy and in walking distance of all the attractions I wanted to see. Easily can walk to Quincy Market and the waterfront. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to stay in boston but is on a tight budget. I'd stay again in a heartbeat!
