3 night stay

4.6 on February 28, 2016

Just stayed at The Guest House for 3 nights while I was in Brookline for a job interview. Everything was great. James and Alice were very nice and the room worked well. I needed an umbrella and Alice was going to let me borrow her's so I could have one going to my interview. Would be nice to have one from the Guest House to borrow. I would definitely stay there again. Great location.


Cozy, Convenient, and Economical

I only had to stay for one night to conduct some business within walking distance. It was perfect because I wasn't bringing a car and needed to walk to where I was going, everything worked out perfectly. The house was very quiet despite having quite a few other guests. I did pick a room with a shared bathroom, but it wasn't an issue at all even with showering in the morning. The host, James, was quite pleasant and chatted with me as he prepared breakfast. The house was very clean and reminded me of my grandmother's house, in a good way. Also, you can't beat the value for the area.


Great value and very comfortable

Cute & Convenient Bed & Breakfast in Coolidge Corner

3.6 on November 16, 2015

We were in town for TEDxBeaconStreet and stayed here in the Rose Room (8). The room met our expectations: It was cute, cozy, and reminded me of staying at Granny's house. (Yummy cookies and breakfast included!) The only drawbacks: We were right by the shared bathroom, kitchen, and dining room, so it got loud in the mornings when everyone came down for breakfast and got ready for the day. Regarding staff: Alice was wonderfully friendly and accommodating, but the other staff members we met weren't as nice, so service was hit-or-miss. The area itself was great: Just a couple of blocks from the T Green Line station (Coolidge Corner), very pedestrian friendly, lots of restaurants and a Trader Joe's nearby. It's a short 15-minute T ride to Boston center and a 25-minute bus ride to Harvard Square. If we returned to Boston and needed to stay in this area, we'd definitely consider the Coolidge Corner Guest House again, but try a different room next time.


My recent stay!!

3.8 on November 07, 2015

This was my second stay at the Coolidge Corner Guest House. Have enjoyed both visits bery much.. Great value in an otherwise very expensive hotel city of Boston, location unbeatable. Coolidge Corner and Brookline are fantastic areas. Staff very helpful and friendly. Breakfast perfect and plentiful. Met several interesting people at the communal dining table...very nice. Only two things stopped it from being a perfect stay. The constant high noise of the fridge was annoying and lack of toilerties in the rooms. To be fair when i did ask shampoo and conditioner was provided immediately but no body lotion. Minor details but to be noted. Would stay there again for sure. Do not hesitate to book it if in the area. Its clise to downtown Boston too with several easy transport options.


Home away from Home

We recently stayed at this bed & breakfast, it was a wonderful experience. One of the best things is the location. It might seem far from the city until you get a 7-day subway pass. The subway is just a 5 minute walk from the B&B which allows you to get downtown without any hassle and saves on expensive cabs. Another get benefit is the shopping and the great restaurants close to the B&B. We found some great restaurants close by that is in walking distance of the B&B and some great shops. No need to go downtown if you don't have to. The overall experience of the B&B was great. The rooms were good not great. They need some updating; however, it is an older style place bring you back to the 50's look. The service was great especially the morning breakfast. Fresh bagels for breakfast right from the bakery. Boston is expensive and this place exceeds the value. Really hard to beat the price, I would recommend this place to anyone. I found it was clean; however, I would have expected more. For those that do not like sharing a bathroom with other guests this is probably not for you, then you would have to book those rooms that have a private bathroom; however, it was easy and clean. Everyone respects your space and no one is hogging the bathroom. If you are every in Boston be sure to look this place up and stay.
