This hotel is kind of out of the way to get to from the downtown Boston attractions, but was still easy enough to get back and forth to between Uber and using the subway. Can't say much about the continental breakfast, as we didn't eat any meals at the hotel. Very clean rooms! The shuttle driver was awesome! He helped get us to the closest subway station and showed us how to purchase our tickets. Invaluable information that was so appreciated! Would recommend if you are on a budget or can't find anything closer to downtown.

This unique hotel experience [it's round!] was complimented w/the BEST free breakfast [both days!] I've ever had--whether on business or pleasure! The complimentary breakfast was actually staffed w/people who were VERY attentive [they were more friendly and more concerned than the average wait-staff!], and constantly stocked food BEFORE it ran out. The food variety was excellent and the fruit was fresh. Good hotel and GREAT breakfasts!

Everything in the hotel was clean and nice. The neighborhood is okay, but not fantastic. The breakfast was very nice with a large variety of basics (eggs, sausage, waffles, fruit, cereal, etc.). The staff was very helpful.

Listen to the other reviews. I didn't and I really regretted it. Not only is it in an unsafe neighborhood (which the other reviews all made pretty clear) but what they don't say is that there is bad element INSIDE the hotel also --like, look out your peep hole to see hookers in the hall and people screaming and laughing all hours of the night. Not to mention the sketchy parking situation of which the hotel washes their hands of any responsibility. Thankfully I only paid $123 for the night.

Good Hotel, but in a very poor neighborhood. Two complaints. 1) With the current Coronavirus pandemic, we asked the front desk clerk what the hotel does to clean and disinfect the rooms. She said she did not know. I recommend that you have a handout at the front desk or a posted sign with what you do to clean and disinfect the rooms , lobby, public areas, etc. 2) When we got to our room, we spent time wiping down and cleaning surfaces as a precaution, then when we opened the mini-refrigerator, we found a have eaten McDonald's Meal still in the paper bag, (McDonald's is right across the street from the Hotel.) Obviously, the housekeeping crew missed that which makes me wonder, how well the rooms are cleaned? When we reported the issue to the front desk, we were immediately given a different room with an apology from the clerk.

I don't really know where to begin this review, except to stay that about 99% of what others have written before me is very accurate -- and I wish I'd read their reviews more thoroughly to understand what I was getting into. I love Best Westerns and am very loyal to them -- I stay at BWs whenever I can. I have never had a bad experience at a BW and this hotel itself is definitely one of the better BWs at which I've stayed -- I'd even go so far as to give it 4.5 stars. It is, however, in a horrible, unpleasant neighborhood -- which drags down its rating detrimentally. PROS? - free parking (though I was worried about my car all night and excited to still see it there / in one piece in the morning) - super clean and spacious rooms (great layout!) - lots of natural as well as man-made light throughout the suites - free bottled water in the room - super friendly and very helpful staff - breakfast was incredible; it had everything you could possibly ask for and caters to all tastes; wide variety of food, very clean and welcoming; very friendly staff also CONS? - not many food options in the area - a very seedy / dodgy area; I didn't feel 100% comfortable as a solo female traveller even walking around in the daylight; I was harassed at one point by a drug addict on the street who was clearly off his head; I rushed straight back to the hotel room and didn't leave for the rest of the day (there may be other areas nearby that are more decent, but I didn’t venture out) - there was a smell of marijuana in the evening permeating into my room and loud sirens through most of the night — thankfully, I’m a good sleeper so that didn't bother me as much as the annoying neighbors in the room next to me, opening and closing their doors loudly at all hours of the night - the beds in the rooms are extraordinarily high -- even at almost 6-feet tall I had to stand on my tippy-toes to get into it - always great to have a gym, but this one was incredibly small for such a large hotel, there were no clean towels, and the treadmill emergency stop button was glued on (danger!) OVERALL: Basically, this is an excellent hotel in a really bad area. The hotel itself was great but I did not feel at all comfortable outside it. I chose this particular BW because of its proximity and convenience to a meeting I had the following morning (that worked out well), but I won't stay at this location again -- I'll opt for the other BW at which I usually stay, even though it's further out from Boston proper. It's a shame, as this really is a great hotel with great people.

My husband and I are always pleased with Best Westerns. This particular Best Western has been the nicest hotel we have stayed at. Very fair price and the room was spacious and clean. The staff was polite and professional. Housekeeping was the most thorough we've seen. As we left the front desk employee, Deginet, was very sweet and helpful. We hope to back again in a few years! Keep up the amazing work

The hotel itself is absolutely lovely! Loved the room and the free breakfast was amazing. The only downside was that our TV didn't really work well, it was very static-y and we couldn't get it to hook up to our laptop with HDMI (the input was there but wasn't working), and all of the remote control inputs were delayed. Aside from that though, the hotel is lovely. However, the area outside of the hotel is frightening. All of my Lyft and Uber drivers warned my friends and I to never walk outside at night, and there was always loud noise from outside. The hotel did supply earplugs to make it easier to sleep, but still. It was disconcerting. The free parking was nice but the lot wasn't very secured and while it did not happen to me, I have heard of other people's cars being tampered with there. All in all though I did have a very nice stay!
