Nice little B&B in a quiet neighborhood.

3.6 on September 28, 2017

This B&B is bigger than it looks from the outside. We did have to share a bathroom, but we never ran into any issues. They do have two available. The breakfast was simple but filling. And it was nice to be able to use the washer and dryer so we didn't have to pack dirty clothes.


Great value in an awesome location

We needed a place close to public transportation as well as being easily reached by car. Coolidge Corner provided both but additionally, came with a clean, comfortable room, nice breakfast, attentive staff.


When what you really want is the comforts of a shared space and a home...

Tired on bare-bones, basic Airbnb's? Want something without the sharp edgers on a Motel or a comfort inn? Want to be close to a neighborhood without being located on the main strip, amidst the traffic? This Purple Guest House, two blocks from Coolidge Corners, is the police to stay. It's comfortable, clean, the on-site staff is friendly and responsive. It is the definition of a value stay. Charming, cozy, comfortable. I grew up in an Victorian home in Philadelphia and now live in a high-rise condo in San Francisco. The moment I stepped onto the front porch of the Coolidge, the familiar creaking of wooden floors brought me home. Proper Edwardian decor, authentic second floor sitting room. And they serve Breugger's Bagels, which are the best in the city. Meanwhile, Coolidge Corner has Peet's Coffee, a UPS center, a BofA, and another block away, a whole foods. Really, if want you want is a feeling of home while you are on the road, stay here. Don't stay here if you love Motel six or similar value properties. This place does not have the standardized carpets, sinks, and such that define these chain properties. Do stay here if you want something else entirely, and you will be happy you did.


Charming B&B

I stayed in the Treetop room for two nights. It was very lovely, a peaceful atmosphere and very charming all around. The variety of foods for breakfast was very appealing and the service was very personable. Having a place to park my car was also very convenient and I had easy access to it. A great B&B in the heart of Boston!


Extraordinary design & friendly, helpful staff

3.2 on September 30, 2016

We had a very warm Welcome when we arrived at "The Coolidge Corner Guest House" in Boston. We stayed in the green room for a couple of nights. The room was just as it has been described on the internet - the shared bathroom as well. Since there is only one other room that you will have to share the bathroom with there was no waiting time. The design of the different rooms and the hallway is extraordinary which we really liked. The breakfast was basic (Cornflakes, yoghurt, bagels or english muffins, jam, eggs, fruits, cake, coffee/tea); served from their very friendly, caring staff.


Clean and great location

Nice

This was an ok place for my wife and I. Pros: Good location, comfortable bed, decent breakfast Cons: Shared bathroom is one per floor, not as much privacy as I'm used to (our room had double doors to the parlor where the Inn worker sat for a good portion of the evening) Parking: While I'm glad for the $2 parking fee their parking is very tight and somewhat difficult to use - and was full - there was significant rearranging when a late arrival who had paid for parking came). I would stay here again (great value) - the pros out weigh the cons. Just make sure you realize there is rather tight parking (can't change their location) and shared bath means one per floor and you'll do fine.
