Recent guest reviews

Location is close to convention center, however it is an older property and does not appear to be recently renovated . It is clean, but limited power outlets, smaller bathrooms, etc.

It was in a good location. The bathrooms were really small

The room smelled as if it recently had been sprayed for bugs. I didn't see any bugs.

The property was kept well however it hasn’t been renovated since the 70’s. The room was sparse, beds were hard, pillows smelled old, toilet wasn’t bolted to the floor so every time you sat on it, it moved-ice machine on the second floor was broken and vending machine on first floor was almost out of product. There is no AC because of “northeast winters” but there’s no fan for movement of air-only heating. The electrical outlets need to be changed because plugs kept falling out of them.; there’s no food on the premises but the place was clean. So if all you’re looking for is a place to lay your head at night, this might be the place for you. Attitude of the staffers leave a lot to be desired when they are told about issues with rooms. I was told “we’ll move you in the morning-just call us because all we want to do is make YOU happy” as if I was the only person in the hotel. The sarcasm can’t be related in writing! But the room was clean.

Great location - close to schools (NEC and Northeastern U) and the T green line (Symphony station).

Although the room was cleanly, and the beds were very comfortable it was a cold night and the room never got above 55 degrees. Unless you were under the blankets it was freezing. I had the thermostat cranked all the way up and left it on and the heat didn’t budge.

Ok hotel with good beds, shower tub spacious room and wifi and cable tv. Needs more outlets though and walls thin so you hear neighboring rooms quite easily. No breakfast available either but many options around.

Good location. Close to Back Bay and NEU. The price is reasonable for this quality.

The location is great. The hotel is a little "tired" in appearance. You had to take your own luggage up several sets of stairs from the parking lot so be prepared.

Great location. Room was very basic. Did not even have a mini fridge.

Clean, convenient to Fenway and the Prudential shops and restaurants, affordable. Helpful and attentive staff.

Only stayed one night. Great staff, especially Marshall the bellman! Room could use a mictprowave and refrigerator.

This isn’t a luxury hotel, but the price is reasonable, the location is very good, and the room is fine as a place to spend the night after having a day of fun in the city.

Toilet was broken, told it was fixed, had to be fixed again, was finally fixed. Bathtub had issue with faucet being stuck and someone had to come and turn off shower. Had to ask for soap and hand towels. Beds were ok, towels were harsh. Staff was 50/50... a few were nice, a few, just rude.

Television was malfunctioning. Staff was far the friendliest.

Heating was not on in the hotel, had been turned off for the summer. Chilly May temp meant a chilly bedroom.

Hallways and elevator need a facelift. But the rooms were better

Our only issue was the room was to warm and we could not adjust the heat. It was borderline stifling during the night. For the price the room was fine. Location was perfect for where we needed to be in Boston.
