This has been a great place to stay! Dylan made our stay very comfortable. We were here for Boston's Childrens Hospital. The beds were comfortable, rooms and other areas were always kept clean even when we were bringing in snow and slush from our boots. Breakfast was fantastic and there is always coffee and hot chocolate available. During snow storm,...

I had to come to town for a Friday meeting. Planned to take the train from Maine the night before. Dylan from the Inn called me Thursday AM to be sure I was still planning to come to town. New England got hit with a huge blizzard. The Inn went up a 100 points for that gesture alone! Once I...

Comfortable stay here, and at a reasonable price. Dylan at the front desk was very accommodating and helpful. The location was good and I liked the room. I would definitely stay here again on future visits.

This is a really neat place to stay one step away from public transportation. The breakfast part is cereal, muffins and doughnuts only. Juice, milk, and keurig coffee. It honestly is really closer to a hostel as opposed to a bed and breakfast. I would stay here again.

I wouldn't stay in Room 14 in middle of winter again because it's just too hot. Staff turned off our radiator and I cracked the window, but being on fourth floor, the heat just tide up. There were bits of black sand in tap water. Hm. The breakfast is fine, but it's odd that there is zero place to sit....

Interesting to see the interior of a vintage brownstone. We stayed on the 1st floor and heard the floors and stairs creak anytime anyone came in the front door and could hear the conversations in the lobby. Had trouble finding enough outlets that worked to plug phones and camera batteries in at night. The bed was wonderful but the furnishings...
