Pleasantly Surprised!

3.8 on October 29, 2014

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

A great experience!

I stayed in the Green Room with a friend, and we both just absolutely loved staying here. The room and house was very nice, and all of the staff were also great. I was really impressed by the breakfast service, I appreciate when there is more available than just cereal. I plan on staying here every time I visit Boston.

Quaint Little Place

4.0 on October 05, 2014

Quaint little place. The Décor is great and the rooms are nice. The stairs are a little steep and can become difficult after walking around Boston seeing the sites. However the staff is very friendly and my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The B&B is an easy walk to the train and many great restaurants. We will definitely consider staying again when we return to Boston.

My Boston Dream

4.4 on October 01, 2014

The staff were very helpful and service oriented. I would definitely recommend this inn to anyone new to town looking for a friendly welcoming home away from home. Thank you to all who made our visit so special. FYI walking distance to a number of conveniences...groceries, coffee shops, restaurants & pubs.
