    Over sold rooms. No hotel rooms left in Boston on 6/6!

    Nothing. Never was able to experience hotel because rooms were oversold. There were no rooms left in Boston.

    In my email I searched for confirmation that I was completely reimbursed for this room which was never available. And I could not find the confirmation that this room was reimbursed hundred percent back to me. I will never book a hotel through Kayak or their 3rd parties again! Very disappointed!

    Great location at a great rate. Very close to the T station.

    Reception was awful. No greeting or pleasantries, we were not even told where to find the elevator.

    Overall a Good experience

    The front desk staff was extremely friendly and welcoming

    The shower was funky, the last day the water was a little bit cold. Also, when you opened the water it would come out through all the pipes, bottom pipe, shower head and fhe hand held shower head it was odd not necessarily an issue besides the cold water

    Location close to our meeting in Copley Square

    Very dated. Old windows that don't filter street noise even on 6th floor. Worst of all is their ridiculous cancellation policy of 72 hours prior to arrival. They wouldn't waive this even though I had just reserved online 50 min before. This place is an overpriced dump!

    Not bad, not great

    The building was old but well maintained and clean.

    The room we had on the top floor had a broken air conditioning unit, so it was an uncomfortable nights sleep

    Great location for going to Fenway park

    Very close walk. Could even see the park from the window

    Pretty basic and bare bones. Nothing special. But booked for location Reservation was under wrong name and address and it took forever to check it

    This hotel is very well located in Kenmore, where there is a little bit of everything around, a T stop, buses and walking distance to Newbury street and the shopping area. Specially, it is very close to Fenway Park for those who are interested. It was comfortable and we had everything we needed, including free wifi in the room. Our stay was perfect.

    I believe the prices are a little high for what you get in a 3 star hotel. But, in Boston, the hotel prices are high in general. In this hotel you are basically paying for location.

    Comfortable, clean, affordable

    Located within steps of Fenway Park and the Kenmore Square T station, with decent restaurants within two blocks, the location is wonderfully convenient. While room rates vary from week to week, they are usually well within my reach and very low by Boston standards

    Somehow the hotel didn't have my booking, but I had a copy of the on-line reservation and payment. They were able to accommodate me but there were some uncomfortable minutes. The room wasn't ready until 3:15, which is unusual for them.
