        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.

      • Couple

        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
        7.0

        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.
