About

Welcome to the Beacon Inn, one established Inn, located in two brownstone townhomes on Beacon Street on the Boston/Brookline city line. These late 19th century brownstones have been fully restored into two of the town's most charming and inviting guesthouses, offering pleasant accommodations at surprisingly affordable rates. Extended stays at the inn and in our apartments are available. Please call us for more information. All buildings are situated in pleasant residential neighborhoods, within walking distance of the bustling commercial squares of Coolidge Corner, Washington Square, Boston University, Boston College, Fenway Park, and minutes away from Downtown Boston via public transportation or even a lovely stroll. The area also offers a wide variety of museums, theaters, restaurants and other points of interest.

Customer Friendly

Beacon Inn provided us a comfortable, budget friendly, safe place to stay and explore Boston. The front desk staff called to check in on us the day prior, waited for us when our travel plans were delayed and provided city specific information to ge tthe most from our stay. The rooms were delightful. The beds were comfortable and the house had so much character. It was much better than a stay at an expensive hotel. The location was safe and had many dining options within walking distance.

stayed in town for the sox game and this was a very convenient alternative to Fenway hotels. Room and breakfast were basic, as promised, and appreciated the wifi was free and strong. will definitely stay here again.

Window panes fit poorly together leading to a night of outside air hitting my neck. Reading wasn't much of a pleasure as energy saving dim light bulbs seemed to be the norm. shower seemed to be less than hot if any one of the other rooms were also taking a shower. And since when is a room the size of a closet cost $219 with all the other disadvantages described above?


Recent Stay (Oct-08)

The building was very traditional to the Boston area. Our room was facing the main street and every 10 minutes throughout the night you could hear the train go by. The breaker tripped when I was drying my hair. The "breakfast" was very small. They had bagels (no cream cheese-they were out), one day they had instant oatmeal, the next day they did not have any more. It is basically bagels, muffins, and coffee. We had to park in a back alley and squeeze the car into a "space" that was terribly small.


Acceptable

Nice rooms, average service. The word "breakfast" makes you expect more than you get here, still acceptable.


Great Stay

4.2 on July 22, 2008

The Beacon Inn is pleasantly located in a residential area, although feet away from the T-trains. Lots of local dining and shopping around, and downtown is easily accessible too. I liked the quiet and pleasant atmosphere, although my room had a brand new flat screen TV and they have wireless internet as well. Nice mix of modern amenities and old school charm.


Beacon Inn 1750

4.0 on June 17, 2008

We found the staff to be very helpful and pleasant. The room, which we were not aware of when booking , was an emergency exit room. The exit sign was at the foot of the bed and shown right into our faces. The bedspread was torn and dirty as were the pillow shams. Floor was bare and stickey. Commode, sink and tub were clean but parts of bathroom weren't. Locks on doors were loose and hard to lock. We feel we certainly could not recommend this B&B


Living at Beacon Hill like an Ancient Bostonian.

Mrs. Susan (and her dogs!) made me feel at home - She is kind and sweet and always helpful. The house is wonderful.
