    Very good

    Hotel was right next to Fenway Park!. Our room had a view of the back of the park which was really cool. Bars and restaurants galore within walking distance. Commuter rail and t stops close as well. There was a comedy club at the restaurant too. Free wi-fi, too.

    You pay for the location. Hotel is old and outdated, no elevator for handicap access, rooms smelled of mildew

    I was barely able to close my eyes and go to sleep. The hotel is desperately in need of renovation. It was not a pleasant experience at all and I would not go back. The hotel clerk told us NOT to eat the complimentary breakfast. I will conduct a more thorough search for future trips so this does not happen to me again.

To bad because or location to Fenway. Would never stay there again because of the cleaniness.

    Very good

    The staff are very helpful. I like the free wi-fi and I was able to connect anytime. It is strategically situated close to the eateries (I like Basho), the subway train (Kenmore station) and other amenities such as the pharmacy, etc.

    There is uncontrolled heat in the corridor, it might be a non- functioning aircon or something.

    Location

    Our initial room had a problem in the bathroom, we had to insist a bit to be given a working one. At checkin we were told we could split the bill and receipts on two credit cards, at checkout the clerk said it could not do it claiming he had no way to do it with reservations done with Booked.net. This was slightly annoying being on a business trip and needing proper receipts.

    The hotel was located in a great part of the city, had an amazing music theme throughout and the connecting restaurant had awesome food! The over all vibe of the hotel was fun. I'll be back!

    The location was perfect for what I was there for.

    Very dirty and outdated. Halls, especially the carpet was filthy. The place was not very well maintained. NO air available...stuffy room.

    Good

    Fun retro vibe of the hotel. Nice pool for summer.

    My husband and daughter stayed there on a weekend as it is close to BU. I stayed there before in the summer. The place was extremely noisy. No breakfast is available any longer in the lobby. Even if it was basic initially, it was nice to pick up some granola, yogurt and fruit and a cup of coffee. The gym is minuscule. My husband was not allowed to come back and park for one hour because it was after 1pm and he would have had to pay for a full day. Not very courteous and generous when I stayed there for 2 nights ! I will definitely check on other hotels and likely will not be booking again any time soon.

    Fabulous

    We were in Boston because my son had an audition at Berklee College. The location was great we were within walking distance of the college and the price was right compared to alot of others. The staff was very nice and very helpful with anything we needed.Even called a cab for us Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable The place could maybe use a little updating but all in all If I were to go back to Boston I would stay there again

    I would have to say the only thing I did not like about the Motel was the back entrance door was never closed the whole time we were there You should have to use your door key to get in but the door was never shut completely. You could just pull it open Which meant anyone off the street could just go on in .Our room was at the top of those stairs just to the right I found that to be alittle unnerving,
