Beds were comfortable.
The entire facility including the rooms smelled of strong bleach or other chemical cleaners. It was an overpowering smell that we didn't dissipate until after leaving the window open for a good 12 hours. And although the rooms appeared to be very clean, there were obvious longer term maintenance issues, such as peeling paint and sloppy repairs in the shower.
Noisy, gum on the floor, door didn't lock automatically, generally careworn.
For graduation weekend, this was a pretty reasonable price. Good location, internet was fairly speedy, and in terms of value, I got reasonable quality for the price paid.
This is advertised as "near public transit" but it is nowhere near a T-line....I had to drive and park for a train station. There is no elevator (!) so you have to lug bags up the stairs. Not kept in the best of condition, but again, in terms of value, it was OK for the price paid.
The proximity to locations around Boston. Close walk to the bus line.
The room and bed were extremely small and uncomfortable. The building and room smelled heavily of cleaning chemicals.
