“best stay ever!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

Recently spent 4 days at this marvelous bed and breakfast. Everyone on the staff and the other guest were soooo friendly and helpful. This is the best home away from home you could ever want. A few of us even had breakfast in the common area still in our PJ's how great is that!!! Super clean, very quiet and so close to mass transit, just a block away hard to believe it was so quiet. Would recommend to everyone.

Room Tip: The only tip I can give is to watch the weekend rate changes according to the local activities. We h...

I had the most wonderful experience at the Samuel Sewall Inn: I was in town for a job interview, so it was a bit of a stressful situation. The staff was incredibly friendly and went above and beyond to make me feel at home. It was also an added bonus that the inn was so close to public transit. The room itself was very comfortable: I LOVED the bed and the Frette robe! My room (room 3) had a fireplace that I unfortunately did not have time to use. The breakfast was also good, especially the cinnamon rolls! I would not hesitate to recommend the inn to my friends and family.

The stuff was great - Glen, Marion, all cleaning help - great people. Breakfast is very good. No temperature issues in Room 9 - very comfy. Great location - close to Trader Joes. Check out restaurant called Lineage - near Trader Joes - excellent!

I'm not normally a B&Ber. I tend to prefer the cold distance and heartless nature of a hotel. Nonetheless, the Samuel Sewall Inn offered the best value in Brookline, so we booked it for a weekend. Our room was large but the temperature was a bit of a problem. The room was extremely hot, leaving the option to open a window to the 20 degree Boston night! Their advice their guide to close the vents didn't help a whole lot. The result was a really hot room that was very cold next to the windows! The beds were just okay and the remote to our TV didn't work (we never called down about it, so I can't complain too much).

Enough nitpicking. They had a small selection of snacks downstairs and drinks (including homemade cookies). It's located next to the T near a nice shopping district. In what little interaction I had with the staff, they were friendly and it was nice and quiet. Just avoid upstairs rooms in the winter!

We stayed at the Sewall when having out-patient surgery that took several days.We booked for one night. In the middle of the night, the wound bled, ruining a pillow and staining the sheets. They were quite gracious about the trouble. We checked out and returned to the hospital.

When it got to afternoon, we realized we should stay another night. We called the 888 # and got the sister inn across the street (The Bertram Inn). I explained we had stayed the previous night and were hoping a room would be available for that night. They gave us an upgraded room at the price of the basic.

When we arrived that evening, they had puttowels on the pillows and provided spare sheets, if we needed. Among two inns and changing staffs, they remembered who we were and made an extra effort to accommodate our needs. Service doesn't get any better than that.

In addition, the beds were quite comfortable and the continental breakfast featured one hot item each day. They also have complimentary snacks - cookies, fresh and dried fruit, beverages - throughout the day and evening.

The inn is 4 blocks from Dana-Farber, Brigham and Womens, Beth Israel and other hospitals. It is also close to Fenway. Plus, it's walking distance to JP Licks - great ice cream and the walking back and forth reduces the guilt.

I'm not looking forward to follow-up surgery, but a return to the Sewall will make it bearable.
