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 :)

Decent stay, but there are a few issues

The hotel seemed a bit old, as though it was once a really great place to stay but is currently a bit over the hill. For the price, I would say it's worth it. The room was small, but comfortable. The television was small, but we didn't visit Boston to watch TV anyway. There were daily continental breakfast that you would expect - cereal, bagels, etc. But I did have a few issues with the hotel. First, my room had a bed that sunk in in the middle and creaked as though it might give out at any time. Second, there was no wifi in the room - wifi only works in a first floor computer room. My biggest complaint was the bathroom - the drain in the tub had rust all around it and it took about ten minutes for the tub to fully drain after taking a shower. It also wasn't a well ventilated room. After showering, we'd leave the bathroom door open and go out and we'd come back to the room being humid. Overall, it was a decent stay with a few hiccups. The hotel is in a great location, just a block away from the Orange T line and three or four blocks away from Copley Square and the Green line. The location was great and I think that, combined with a comfy but not especially opulent room makes it worth the stay. Especially when compared to other pricey hotels in the same area.

Dining tip: In Hotel

Wouldn't recommend ordering food in the area. Everything was overpriced and the delivery fees were very high. Go out instead and save yourself some cash.

Perfect Location

It's basic. Staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are small and plain, but clean. The central location is the hotel's best feature. It's a decent hotel for the price.

90's Motel??

That's what it felt like. It was an Old and dingy. Location isn't everything. There are other hotels in the neighbourhood that are just as affordable and better value for money.

Convenient and comfortable

Needs a restaurant. Dining away requires either a brisk walk or a cab. For the price, Continental Breakfast was Continental. Staff was friendlhy, not always knowledgeable about the transport system (T). {This was not entirely their fault as some request for directions took me beyond the areas with which they were most familiar}
