    Close to Fenway

    Got there early and they had a room ready for me! Parking was $45, but they offered cheaper parking. Super nice staff! Perfect location for Fenway. Simple hotel, but perfect for my stay. Would recommend.

    I like the prewar architecture;; however, it needs updating. The heat did not work. I had to use two space heaters.

    Great location. Clean room. Only improvement that I would suggest is from TV standpoint is either have Bly-Ray/DVD player and/or movies and the shower head water jet was quite weak.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Very bad

    We have no problem with old hotels. This place is like a hostel or something. No charm. Very very basic rooms. Paint peeling. Uncomfortable bed. No phone in room. Location is awesome though.

    Great location. You get what you pay for.

    Location is great. The room was tiny with a few of a brick wall... I've had better rooms there, but this was pretty inexpensive.Parking cost went up which is unfortunate.
