Nice enough for the money
This Inn was what I expected for the money. It was overall cute and pretty cozy, and you got a private room for a low price. I might check out some of the area hostels before going back, because you do sacrifice cleanliness and newness for having a private room. Hostels would be about the same price, but be cleaner and more up to date shared dorm style rooms.
The beds werent the nicest, and some of my pillowcases were dirty when I arrived. Additionally, the plugs were old and difficult to use to charge my phone. Overall, it was cozy and about as nice as I expected for the price. I also didn't mind the shared bathroom, which might be an issue for some people.
It's like staying at Grandma's, if she smoked
Price and location were good, relatively close to MBTA transportation. The sheets were clean, and there were no visible signs of bedbugs or other pests.
The rooms could have been cleaner, the hallways smelled like cigarette smoke, and the shared bathroom had a bit of mold on the ceiling of the shower.
Convenient to college, transit, and food!
Staff was courteous and helpful. Small fridge, microwave, sink, counter for eating, in room.
Shared bathroom, bring your own toiletries.
The price and parking were good.
Did not know it would have shared bath; no TP TO the whole time I was there, no towels, freezing cold. The room had a kitchenette but the plug to the fridge didn't reach the wall so it was useless. Also no mirror in the bedroom, so I had to do my makeup in the car. Very very noisy, did not sleep at all second night. Sounded like the entire building was partying.
What I wanted was 1) Bed, 2) Location - I got both
Good location - whether from South station, or any of the colleges.
The entrance was leaking. It was the height of the Boston infamous winter and water was pouring down the entrance. Anyway, I guess this was due to the weather again - the owner may not have planned this level of snow. So in that sense, my review may understate the place.
