Room was very warm. Thermostat adjustments did not work to alleviate
I liked the location in the Naval Yard, and to get downtown Boston it is only about a mile walk across a pedestrian-friendly bridge, and an Uber from downtown is only about $7. Compared to the cost of other downtown hotels, being around $400 per night, the Constitution Inn was the best I could find for not wanting to pay that much and for a close proximity. I would not recommend this hotel if staying longer than a few days, or if you are looking for something with ambiance. Best if traveling alone, too. Based on the rooms (cement brick walls, etc...) it looks like the facility used to be some sort of public housing. The area around it is charming. Again, for the price and being so close to downtown, I think it was a decent stay.
It was located right where we wanted to be and there is a YMCA in the same building. So access to a nice exercise facility and walking distance to the Constitution ship yard and the docks on the water front in Charelstown, MA.
The bathroom was very dirty. Hairs from previous guests were everywhere. The comforters on the beds were stained. We were only given two bath towels and when we called for more we had to go down to the front desk to get them.
It is not a four starts hotel, but it has all its facilities and more to offer. Friendly, very well situated. It was a pleasant surprise. It has all the sport facilities you might need. You can walk or run by the water. It is close to downtown Boston. The Freedom Trail starts a block from there. I recommend the Constitution Inn.
This is not an overly fancy room, but was roomy and had a clean and decent kitchenette. The location was superb in the old naval yard, with quiet cobblestone, tree-lined street for walking just minutes from the harbor, a fantastic restaurant, a small market with YMCA fitness center and pool attached. I would definitely stay here again.
The venue was clean and the room I had fairly large and well presented. The bathroom was clean and reasonably sized. The street outside was quiet. Wifi connectivity was good, and free. There is a cafe across the street that is reasonably priced for breakfast
I would describe the front desk service as functional rather then friendly. Little choice of food in the hotel apart from vending machine.
IF I COULD GIVE THIS PLACE A NEGATIVE 10 I WOULD. IT WAS SO HOT IN THE ROOM. NO AC, THERE WAS NO DECOR, IT SMELLED AWFUL, I WAS AFRAID TO SLEEP UNDER THE COVERS EVEN IF IT WOULD HAVE BEEN COOL ENOUGH. WE HAD 6 FANS IN THE ROOM WITH 2 WINDOWS OPEN AND IT WAS SWELTERING. THE SHOWER WAS DIRTY, AND THE STAFF WAS RUDE. THERE WAS ALSO NO MENTION ON THEIR HOTELS.COM SITE THAT THE SECOND FLOOR IS A HOMELESS SHELTER/RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT FACILITY HOWEVER IT IS. THE ELEVATOR WAS BROKEN MOST OF THE NIGHT AND MY DISABLED SON ALMOST HAD TO BE CARRIED DOWN 5 FLIGHTS OF STAIRS. THE PARKING GARAGE WAS LIKE 4 BLOCKS AWAY AND THEY REFUSED TO GIVE A REFUND FOR 2 REASONS 1)THEY ARE A "NON PROFIT" 2) BECAUSE I BOOKED ON A TRAVEL SITE BUT OFFERED ME 20% OFF MY NEXT STAY WHICH WILL BE NEVER!!! I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE AND WAS DEF NOT WORTH 185 A NIGHT.
It was inexpensive.
The whole place smells like a locker room.
convenience and price. clean and met the basics
was surprised that it is a YMCA facility. parking was a walk away.
The location was perfect for where I was working when I was down there. I loved the unique room set up with the sky light, if it was nicer out they have patios that have a nice view as long as you look past the decrepit building next to it. They are attached to a YMCA which was great!
The shower was extremely small and I'm claustrophobic so that was an issue for me.
Comfortable and conveinent
I brought exercise clothes and went for a jog in the neighborhood. To my pleasant surprise, there were several people running up and down the piers and that made for a lovely run. There is a marina nearby that is scheduled to open in May 2015, and some lovely small homes/townhomes in the vicinity. The price was extraordinarily reasonable ($89 + tax prepaid on Kayak), compared to most hotels that were $250 and up per night. The staff was helpful (calling a taxi and recommending a breakfast place nearby).
The temperature controls in the room seemed ineffective (the room was a bit warmer than I liked), the decor was inexpensive and outdated, and the neighborhood is in transition (construction activity taking place on one side, and an abandoned building on the other).
The bathroom walls were rotting away. We realized that when we turned the fan off in the bathroom and came back after a day out to a wretched smell. Realized they left the fan on at all times to hide the odor of the bathroom.
Walking distance to TD Garden. Room was large and clean. Was able to find street parking though it is nice to have the option of their garage parking.
Staff member at check in complained about how we did not book direct thru them but instead used Kayak (though they kept calling it Expedia...) and said "I'm surprised your reservation even showed up. Now I have to call Expedia and fix it." Not the most welcoming check in.
Walking distance to the attractions of Charlestown. Staff was good.
It's literally a YMCA. Has an outdated look/feel to it. Could smell chlorine from pool. Not worth the $200 we paid to stay.
It is 5 steps from the MGH lab we were in town for.
Walls are thin, you can hear people talking in normal voices. We felt the need to whisper. Thank goodness we had good neighbors
located near the Constitution... very quiet a bit confused on arrival.. YMCA is on the lower corner. I saw YMCA before I saw the name Constitution Inn That would be a great addition for some visitors. Staff was very helpful. Fastest Check -in ever. Nice buffet breakfast in walking distance from corner of the Inn (No Breakfast at the INN)
NO NO NO PARKING!!!! Plan to walk several blocks with your luggage. We were lucky enough to find a parallel spot on along the side of the Inn and after 6 PM we could park, but from 8 am til 6 PM the area is 2 hour parking only and police patrolled The parking is difficult to find without a map from the staff.
