        The check-in procedure was easy. The beds were soft. The room was clean. The desk clerk, Fritz, was most accomodating and directed us to an excellent restaurant.

      • Single
        7.8

        The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. Continental breakfast was excellent, lots of coffee.

        No, the hotel was better than my expectations.

        Very close to the metro station that connects to boston center directly. Spaceous and clean room.

      • Single

        Convinience close to everything in Brookline & best of all free parking

      • Couple
        6.6

        They check in proccess was quick, the room was clean.

        The location of the rooms was not very clear. There was road construction right outside the room which I was not aware of, it just meant I woke up a little earlier than expected to the sound of a jackhammer.

      • Couple
        8.2

        The price is great for Boston!

        They said on the website you could leave your car for longer than your stay but hotel employees said no!

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        Relatively reasonable price compared to other nearby accommodations. Breakfast was a nice feature.

        Could use some refurbishing. Room carpet was past service life.

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        The location was perfect to visit our daughter. It was very quiet. We never heard any other guests or doors slamming. I liked opening my door and being outside.

        I didn't like the slope of the walk to the lobby. It was raining and I was very worried about slipping.

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        Internet and cell phone connection was dropped frequently and continuously for the first two days. A repairman came but the problem continued. We were then moved to a room near the front and closer to the main access frame. Connection improved but we still had connection problems. Also, when taking a shower, the water pressure and the water temperature changed often.

      • Older travelers

        Staff are excellent, breakfast sufficient. Cannot beat the price.

        Getting run-down.

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        Clean and comfortable beds, got a king room, since we came early and queen was not ready! nice staff, easy parking in front of the room.

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        It was clean and tidied up for an old structure. Breakfast was very good. Staff were very helpful. The location was perfect for our needs.

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        Very convenient to the T. Didn't need a car to get around. The breakfast served our needs. The site said they only had queen beds in their rooms, but ours was a king. Nice surprise.

        Bathrooms are small, but it's an older hotel.
