"Across the street from a homeless shelter that shut down; we were told not to venture out after dark. Our room had bedbugs. We were given another room, but I was worried they were already in my clothes and other belongings. Find another hotel.2021-05-05"
"The hotel was no-nonsense and perfectly adequate. My room had a great view.2019-05-20"
"Clean hotel with good service. Far from the city center, though, so bring your car.2016-10-19"
"The hotel was near a hospital and homeless shelter, and I heard loud noise all night. I didn't get a good night's sleep. Bring ear plugs.2016-10-14"
"The hotel was set back from the street. The room was clean, and the bed was quite comfortable. The staff was pleasant and helpful with area information.2019-06-02"
"Clean, quiet room. Check-in and checkout were efficient. The restaurant workers were always pleasant, but the food was mediocre and overpriced. We appreciated the large, covered drop-off and pickup area in front. I recommend this hotel, though it is a bit pricey.2018-09-07"

"My hotel room was in the basement level, so it was a bit dark and disorienting to see people's calves and shoes walking past. However, the decor was lovely, and I loved having the galley kitchen and separate living area. Had to notify the front desk if I wanted housekeeping. The complimentary breakfast was a nice touch. The key code for the door was changed every day.2016-06-30"
"This is a young person's hotel, and I needed a teenager with me to handle the technology. I never did figure out how to turn on a light in the room at night. The bathroom light worked fine, but the shower water went from hot to cold in the morning. Great place to stay if you just need a place to crash.2022-02-22"
"The mattress was awful; I could feel the springs. The hotel was being renovated, and despite quiet hours, I heard hammering that started at 6 AM and went on all day. I don't recommend this hotel.2020-02-17"
"Clean but small room with a refrigerator, microwave, and Keurig coffee maker. Comfortable bed and pillows. The wireless Internet service wasn't reliable. The toilet ran constantly and was loud. So was the bathroom fan, and it came on automatically with the light. Worst of all was the poor soundproofing; I could hear the people in the room next door, and woke to the smell of marijuana. The entire hotel staff was absolutely fantastic. Great workout room, and the TV had many channels to choose from. Good complimentary breakfast with hot and cold selections, and I enjoyed the fresh cookies every evening. The shuttle service was a big plus, and parking was free.2016-03-24"
"My hotel room smelled musty, and the bathroom needed upgrading. Good continental breakfast.2015-09-10"

"I had a pleasant hotel stay and was treated with the utmost respect. Top-notch accommodations and staff.2018-11-04"
"Great location. A cool hotel with a retro vibe. The room was clean and had a music theme that included a record player. There was a collection of records in the lobby that could be borrowed. My teen daughter loved it, but it's not for everyone. Limited continental breakfast. Valet parking included in and out privileges.2017-03-31"

"Not worth the price. Our hotel room wasn't cleaned properly. The check-in clerks weren't helpful with directions. We couldn't get service at the restaurant, so we walked out of the breakfast room. Don't stay here.2016-10-07"
"Great location and reasonable rates. The hotel staff was friendly.2015-11-30"
"The room was clean. The toilet in our room overflowed at 6 AM; excellent maintenance man jumped through hoops to resolve the situation, and the hotel clerk offered us a small discount. All the employees were pleasant. There was only 1 bartender on duty; after waiting 20 minutes for our drinks, we gave up and went to a bar down the street.2016-12-23"
"The hotel was clean and comfortable, but the front desk clerk shamed me for being unvaccinated by making me wear a vivid scarlet red armband to notify others of my status. I was very disappointed.2022-02-10"
"Nice hotel room with a good bed, but the light in the bedroom was falling apart. The light fixture in the bathroom was rusty, and the tile grout was in need of repair. The bacon and sausage at breakfast were awful; I had a piece of fruit and left.2020-02-01"

"Good location, but the room left a lot to be desired. There was no dresser or closet. The hotel staff was helpful in every way. Think twice about staying here for more than one night.2018-10-11"
"This was my 2nd stay at this hotel. Good location and friendly service. Spacious room and comfortable bed. Had to ask for more towels. The lobby bar had great pizza and a nice atmosphere for unwinding before bed. Didn't have automatic checkout. I'd happily stay again.2015-09-15"
"Great location, and the Metro stopped just up the street. Hotel was quiet, with a nice view of the city. Good room service food. Staff was helpful and always willing to assist with directions or whatever was required to make our stay enjoyable. Try the South Street Diner while in Boston.2015-02-12"
"The beds were tiny, and the shower didn't drain. Don't stay at this hotel.2021-10-31"
"Good location. The hotel room was fine. Not much of a view, though, and the window was so filthy that we kept the curtains closed. The $58 parking fee was outrageous.2021-08-27"
"Lots of restaurants, stores, and sightseeing in the area. The bathroom was old, and the plumbing was patched. The corking around the toilet bowl leaked. The hotel staff was welcoming and wonderful; they went above and beyond to meet my needs. 2020-12-17"

"About a 10-minute walk from MGH, so it's convenient if you have a medical appointment. Self-parking cost $15 as opposed to $58 for valet parking. The check-in clerk was strictly business. My stay was OK.2020-09-12"

"Perfect location; walk to many fabulous restaurants. Comfortable hotel with great amenities. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Great pool and exercise room. I'll definitely stay again.2015-12-11"
"Close to the JFK Presidential Library and Museum. The motel was basic, and the price was right. The room was clean and just big enough for 1 queen beds, a dresser, and a chair. The mattress was uncomfortable, and the water pressure in the shower was almost non-existent. The breakfast buffet was just adequate, though the freshly-made oatmeal was excellent. I was glad I only stayed one night.2019-10-18"
"I had a lovely, quiet hotel stay.2018-04-05"

At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
