Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChristineN1429 Friendly Welcoming Comfortable Hotel
We were welcomed to the hotel when we arrived via the airport shuttle. We weren't there long before we were out to explore Boston. This hotel is very convenient to the Andrew Station subway stop and the shuttle took us there (and picked us up) daily. It gives you an affordable option to stay in Boston without the high cost. There is also a shopping center right behind the property that was very convenient. Breakfast was self serve but consisted of eggs, hot and cold cereals, bagels, breads, waffles, yogurts, fruit, teas and juices. Water was always available in the lobby and fresh baked cookies showed up at 6pm each night! When we returned each night, whomever was working the desk always made sure to greet us and ask us about our day. We felt very welcome and comfortable here and will be back. Each bed (two doubles) had four pillows to select from, which were labeled as soft or firm. The beds were comfortable and we never heard any noise in the hall or adjoining rooms.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Griswald3491 Not the best location
1st impression was that the location was shady, right off the highway and in an industrial area. At check in, overheard a guest telling staff that her car was stolen from the parking lot. Staff was very accommodating throughout. Shuttle service provided to/from nearest T station (again, walking distance to hotel, but shady neighborhood). Walked it with the family, but only during daylight hours. Smartly waited in 24 hr. D&D for late night return shuttle. Convenient because parking in down town Boston is too pricey. Informed at check in that I'd get 300 bonus points as Platinum member, however I got 500 bonus points just 2 days earlier at a different HIE(?).
Overall, price was best in Boston...quick drive to Sam Adams, Harpoon, and JFK Library. Helpful, cheerful staff. No pool, but secret access to sister hotel's pool next door.
