Very accommodating!

The staff was very welcoming and accommodated us early on in the day when we were to change rooms the next day. Housekeeping made it an easy transition for us. I would only ask that ice be available during the evening hours. Thank you!

enjoyed our brief stay

We arrived as a late check in the evening before my scheduled surgery. The staff made us feel welcomed and did not make us feel as though we had been an inconvenience. Unfortunately we did not have any meals as we had to arrive at the hospital early the next morning. She did make me a nice cup of hot tea, once we arrived, which was very relaxing and made me feel at home.

Pleasantly Surprised!

I was pleasantly surprised at how cute, cozy and convenient the Coolidge Corner was. It was close to the "T" which made it so easy to see the sites in Boston!! The Trader Joe's around the corner was a sweet surprise too! ¿¿

Pleasant and cozy

4.0 on October 29, 2014

So nice to have a warm, comfy bed in a well-run place. Loved that tea and coffee and coffee cake and cookies were available all day, since I'm not an early riser. Was a very nice place to hang my hat and get some quiet time while in town visiting my sister and toddler nephew.

Flexible and Comfortable

3.6 on October 26, 2014

I was staying over the night before a medical school interview and was pleased to find it easy to arrange all my necessities despite my less-than-standard schedule, including paying the night before, leaving my keys in my room, locating and using an iron, and taking food for breakfast ahead of time (all because I had to leave at 7 am the next morning) to keep with me in my room. The room was also very comfortable, with more space than I expected, including a nice rug for me to do my morning yoga and meditation.

Comfortable B&B

3.6 on October 23, 2014

Quiet B&B; very comfortable bed; very clean throughout; appreciated use of computer and printer so I could print out my boarding pass; friendly staff; coffee, tea, and snacks available and reasonable breakfast. Phone did not work.

Great Place to Stay

4.4 on October 18, 2014

The rooms are comfortable, the people are friendly, the house is in a great location, the price is right. I highly recommend the Coolidge Corner Guest House to all travelers.
