Beacon Inn 1750

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel was comfortable and clean. Great location, had parking for $25 and a certain charm but nothing fancy. We could hear the train going by all night long! So it was a bit noisy. Breakfast was included and it was the bare minimum for a continental.

Since it was a last minute i really enjoy it, the staff was friendly and all the room was ok and all.

Arrived late. Parking was a challenge. Quality of room poor.

the parking is horrible...granted we had alot of snow. Could have been a whole lot cleaner.

Vintage lodging. Clean room, but the old cast iron radiator was set way too high the first night. Difficult to sleep when the temperature is so high. Second night was much better, more comfortable sleeping. Location was great for what we needed, we could walk to dining locations with ease. Would not hesitate to stay again.

If you want to experience what a family managed bed and breakfast is all about, you will not be disappointed in the Beacon Street Inn, a bit of history to go with it, 14 rooms that are named after some of our foundering fathers and historical references. The staff are nothing short of providing "Outstanding Service" during your stay. Plenty of outstanding restaurants, pubs, holistic services in walking distance...however, if you are expecting hot tubs, swimming pools, Jacuzzi, the Beacon Street Inn is not for you... A whole lot of charm and you have to treat it like your own home... Truly a magical place for me during my stay....cannot wait until I can return with my wife.. To truly enjoy the feel as a part of Boston, this is a must stay !!

Checked in late evening. Friendly staff. Large comfortable well-lit 1st floor room (Sam Adams room). Clean crisp sheets, hardwood floors shining, large bath with hot hot water + decent pressure. Stayed New Years' weekend and place was mostly quiet. Rooms well insulated to sound. Especially liked how room and hotel didn't smell of any old stale cigarette smoke. Location is fantastic. Price is amazing. I booked late in the game before i read all the bad reviews and was nervous. After my stay i have no idea why the bad reviews. I spoke to another guest who also didn't understand the bad reviews.

The hotel is in a very old house in Brookline. It was entirely adequate for a cheap place to sleep, near Boston, on the subway line. I felt safe and had a safe parking space for my car. Decor is old. Kids who checked me in very nice and accommodating.

Went to Boston to go to Fenway with some friends. The hotel was cheap and had a very homey feel to it. It was about 2-3 miles from Fenway and other attractions. The area was quiet so it was easy to get and stay asleep.

This hotel is not for everyone - if you are a light sleeper, like to sleep in or go to bed early or don't like chintz - this is not the place for you.[...]Housekeeping - do not do the job. So check to make sure you have towels, washcloths, etc. They really need to train the staff on this - the rooms did not look like anyone came into them to tidy up or replenish supplies (we ran out of toilet paper).Rooms - we stayed in the Paul Revere (3) room - radiator noise, street noise, etc. Radiator leaked, I reported, no one paid attention. The second room was on the first floor (Sam Adams). You can hear every conversation, every door opening and closing, etc. Large room, small bathroom shower. We solved the problem of listening to everyone's personal details by keeping the tv on all night. They would do well to provide "white noise" machines.GOOD VALUE - GOOD LOCATION - CHARMINGJust a little pet peeve - they wanted me to do more paper work for the second move - I refused as it made no sense for me. Most likely someone's rule - but if they thought about it (doesn't look like thought is used here) they would see that it is illogical.

This hotel is adorable! The staff is so friendly! No matter what room you stay in it has this rustic old town house feel, it's so cute! The price was fantastic and I just can't get over how cute it was! Each room has it's own actual history because the building it self was built in like the 1800's or so. It's romantic, adorable, and I would definitely stay here again.

Went to the BRS game... very convenient to Fenway... nice to have two double beds.... one for play.. one for sleep!!

Beautiful place!!

I was moving my daughter into college, and this hotel was perfect. It was convenient; the staff was very friendly and helpful; the room was large and clean, and the toiletries were a step above what you usually get. If noise bothers you, this might not be the hotel for you as it's on a very busy street, but it was just what I needed. I would definitely stay here again.

Very basic accommodations. The place needs a good cleaning. The bathroom smelled and their was the previous guest's hair in the shower. There is no elevator which means a steep climb up the stairs to floors two, three or four. The busy staff were accommodating in carrying luggage to the forth floor. The continental breakfast is out of the box or can.

The Beacon Inn was clean and friendly. We had room 4 which had a king size bed which was kind of hard. The staff was very friendly and it was very quiet. The breakfast was very small. It was a reasonable and friendly B&B.

It was a good value.

Besides being mentioned as a Bed and Breakfast hotel there was none served.

Although our room was all the way upstairs in a 3 or 4 floor walk-up, we didn't mind at all! The room was spacious. Some of the furniture and linens were a bit outdated -- particularly the comforters and pillows...but towels were fresh and clean. The only odd part: our door had an Emergency Exit handle. It was definitely a bit strange trying to open the door with a key without being tempted to just push the handle in...but we were able to work it out! And the location is great -- right next to a T stop, which will conveniently get you into the heart of Boston in no time.

We arrived early and we couldn't check in- there was no bathroom for us to use. When we arrived back (45 mintues after check in) and checked in we were VERY surprised to be charged an additonal $40 for the two people that they already knew were going to be in the room. I have never before booked a room with all the people mentioned and had to pay additionally after using a website. I felt very misled- The staff was not extremely excited to have us using their establishment. They were courteous enough- The room looked clean, but it is not really as described on the website. I would not say that they are fully restored...in fact more the opposite. The wallpaper was very old looking. And the bed spreads made the bed look like they had just been slept on. I did not feel they captured romance either...they were very plain with nothing that made them stand out.
