The staff was very helpful and the property is located in central Boston, close to everything. If you can catch a good rate, I would recommend the stay.

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.

Place was a dive

Room carpeting old and stained in several areas, furniture was old , scratched, broken, bathroom was a disaster,....they had maintenance using power tools on a broken door and woke up half the 6th floor at 11:30 in the evening. They should credit me for 1 of the 3 days we stayed

Good place for overnight!

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.
