    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    Very clean and well maintained property. The room had what is needed for a comfortable stay: comfortable bed with crisp white linens and sparkling white towels, a large desk, sensible lighting features, microwave, fridge. Laundry is on site if needed. Breakfast has a variety of choices (no eggs though): pastry, breads, yogurt, fruit, oatmeal, cereal. If traveling by public transportation a bus stop is across the street. Bus will take you to a main subway line (red line that goes to downtown Boston). Highly recommend this property.

    The place appears as a super budget hotel but the service from everyone was excellent. Better than we got at supposedly much nice Sheraton hotel.
