Nice hotel, big rooms, very comfortable and clean. Very professional and kind front desk representatives. Nice breakfast with plenty of choices. No microwave in the room (but there is a mini refrigerator). Only in the lobby.

"Not a Great Location but a really nice room"

User 20/08/2019

The room was large and comfortable for two people and a cat. The hotel is in a sketchy area, near a few hospitals and noisy at night. My room was on the street side which probably made that aspect worse. And they did have security at night. It's also not near any subway. They offer a shuttle - but it's only every 1.25 hour. So if you miss it, you've got a wait or need to get a cab/Uber/Lyft. One elevator was out of service from before I arrived and was still out of service when I left. The "business center" was likewise out of service from before I arrived and was still out of service when I left. The "fitness center" is a treadmill and two cycles in a mirrored room. One almost walks into one of they cycles upon entry. So not so good. The breakfast was good - eggs, potatoes, cereal, oatmeal, fresh fruit, waffles, muffins - a good variety and fresh every day. The staff in the breakfast area were terrific about keeping the tables clean and the food well supplied. The maid service - because I had a cat in the room, I did not let them into the room during my stay. When I needed supplies, I asked the room maid who was MORE than accommodating about meeting my needs. I see the management responds to these reviews so I hope they let her know I appreciated her good, friendly service. And as I said the room was great. I normally wouldn't write such a review but I think Best Western should do better.

emanuelacanzano, New York City, New York 17/08/2019

Really nice place. Good location, not far from Boston but competitive price. Nice room, clean and confortabile. The only negative point was the breakfast not so good for all people. Just few muffins but not pastries at all, pan cakes machine ridiculous and with lots of problems. Except for breakfast was a nice stay. Wonderful place is the next restaurant the Tavern!!! Lovely food.

I expected an average room but was very surprised to find a big beautiful room (almost a suite), large bathroom and everything was new and very clean. They were very friendly and the security made me feel very safe. They did even the small things well included a full breakfast in the AM when I expected a "continental" one. I will be back.

obbarry, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates 16/08/2019

Hotel was only ok for value. Not in the best location but staff were very good. It was clean and had very hogh beds and which was odd..lol. We arrived early and needed laundry and parking spot. Dagenet (guessing the spelling of her name..sorry!) was great and had answers fot all or queries and was so much help to us. She was friendly and basically took alot of hassle out of our first trip tp Boston ! If you habe Uber you wont have any problems. Its located only 25min walk to Copley square which we did everyday and helped clear the heads although neighbourhood isnt great, but we had no problems.

"Penny-Pinching Hotel With Breakfast So Awful Animals Will Not Eat the Food"

WallyNewJersey, New Jersey 13/08/2019

From the dimly lit interiors to save electricity, to only one elevator allowed to operate, to truly awful tasteless food, to staff who cannot speak English (I am not a bigot but someone has to speak English just for ordinary services), everything reeks of extreme penny-pinching by the management of this property. How many more pennies would it cost to have just decent food, or better lighting than a few cold-light LEDs? Probably only a few pennies per booking. I was also overcharged compared to the booking made.

GM_Front_Desk, General Manager at Best Western Plus Boston Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for notifying us of your recent experience. We sincerely apologize that we were unable to meet your expectations, specifically regarding the issue with lighting and your disappointment in our breakfast options. Your comments will be shared with our management, as we wish for all of our guests to have a comfortable stay.

Sweet M, Ottawa, Canada 12/08/2019

I enjoyed staying in this hotel mostly because of the friendly staff. Especially "Daginet" was very helpful, kind and professional. Thank you, Daginet. The rooms were very clean and the beds were extremely comfortable after a long day of travelling and exploring. However, the area was the hotel is located in industrial and not friendly for walkers.

flower2921, New York City, New York 10/08/2019

Nice hotel located NOT in the best part of Boston. Front Desk Agent was polite and professional. We booked suite for 4 people. It wasn't big but we managed it. Room is clean with renovated furniture. They had only 2 elevator and one of them was Out of Service so we had to wait for a while to get to the room. I'm not sure if I will be back just because of the location.

GM_Front_Desk, General Manager at Best Western Plus Boston Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Sesegma, We appreciate all feedback from our guests, and we welcome your input. It is wonderful to know that you appreciated our friendly staff members and clean and renovated accommodations.

KristofferTravels, Halifax, Canada 07/08/2019

Hotel itself was nice. One elevator was broken during out stay. The issue with this hotel is the location. There is a methadone clinic nearby and the neighborhood is cluttered with folks actively using. Two nights there were active incidents requiring police presence on the street. It's located near two bus routes that will get you to the subway or to where you need to go. If Boston could clean up the neighborhood a bit, this hotel would be a 5.

"Dissapointing experience"

TravelNewEng, Enosburg Falls, Vermont 07/08/2019

The hotel was not clean; the front desk staff were unprofessional; & knew nothing about the $20.00 gift card that was being offered if you booked another stay at a Best Western by fall of 2019. I will never stay at this hotel again.

User 07/08/2019

We,family of 4, have chosen this hotel for a short trip to Boston.We have been very pleased with all the services: the staff was very nice, everything was very clean and if you plan to use the subway which is not far from the hotel, a good shuttle service is offered. Location is close to downtown in case you want to take an uber and it is not expensive. The neighborhood is a little bit shady, but not to worry, it was safe.We had an unexpected incident on the last day within the parking lot and the way Mr. Sal, the manager, handled the issue make us considering this not a problem.Kudos to the way he handled the situation by protecting his staff and dealing with the clients' interest in the same time.He exceeded our expectations.We would stay here again if we came back to Boston.

Jeff H, Camden, Delaware 31/07/2019

I expected very little since I booked this hotel the night before traveling to Boston for a Phish concert. I was really just looking for a cheap place to lay my head for the night. I would say that this hotel very much exceeded my expectations. The staff was super friendly and the room was perfectly clean. It was an absolutely huge room compared to what I had expected as well. Here are some of the "cons": 1. The neighborhood is a little shady, especially in the evening. Not horrible, but the hotel parking lots are not secured, and they make it very clear that it's not their problem if you were to have a break-in. 2. It was very loud outside the hotel. When I got there, I had just driven through the night and had wanted to catch a nap. Luckily, they seem to be cognizant of this because they provide ear plugs in the room for you. 3. There isn't much open late at night surrounding the hotel in walking distance. We got back from the concert around 11:30 or 12, and NOTHING was open for my buddy to grab a bite to eat. Not a huge deal, but beware. Again, I would 100% stay here again if I came back to Boston. It was a very short ride over to Fenway by Uber, and the amenities were top notch for the price.

GM_Front_Desk, General Manager at Best Western Plus Boston Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Jeff, Firstly, we are glad to hear from you and thank you for choosing us as your home away from home during your recent visit. It is a pleasure to learn that we surpassed your expectations from our cozy accommodations and top-notch service. It saddened us though for not meeting your expectation regarding our neighborhood and the unwanted noise. We are doing everything to work with the city officials to try and resolve this problem. We hope that the earplugs eased the distraction and you finally laid down and snoozed till morning. Finally, hearing that you have plans to revisit us is considered a compliment. We are looking forward to your next visit and create another memorable experience with you. Thanks and safe travels.

"Nice Hotel close to South Boston"

Missyf13, Quaker Hill, Connecticut, United States 29/07/2019

This hotel was nice and it was a quick ride via uber to the Seaport area of South Boston, the staff was so nice and accommodating assisted in information to take the "T" train or to take an uber to avoid driving. We got recommendations of restaurant that made it easier to pick a place to grab a bite. Sal the manager and his staff were great to work with.

"Nice hotel; shady neighborhood"

cycloner, New Hampshire 26/07/2019

This hotel is located in or close to Roxbury, one of the less safe neighborhoods. I was staying two nights with my 13-year-old daughter. We arrived after dark, and noticed multiple police vehicles at the hotel. They were interviewing a hotel guest about an assault that apparently took place just outside the hotel. This scared my daughter, who didn't want to stay at the hotel. They have a police officer stationed at the door during certain hours. Across the street is a church, where there were maybe 50 people gathered, who appeared to be homeless or otherwise in need. The next day we saw a homeless person sleeping in the doorway of the adjacent business. There is very limited parking on the hotel grounds, so you need to park in an adjacent lot across the street or in a gas station back lot about 1/2 block away. I would feel safe during the day, but after dark, I was nervous. The room was great; the service was nice; the price was good. You need to be comfortable with the seedy neighborhood, however, to take advantage of the rest.

1 night - arrived mid afternoon - easy quick check in. Front desk staff was friendly and easily accommodated our numerous questions. Room - spotless. 2 queen beds, an excellent sitting area with a convertible hide-a-bed. Room was completely comfortable with 3 girls. Bathroom had all necessary accoutrements. Morning breakfast was definitely plentiful and staff was smiling & happy ! Parking - no charge !!! Crazy ! Uber to Seaport = appx $10. Would definitely recommend this hotel due to staff & room. Note - area surrounding the hotel is a bit rough. We had no issues but just should be aware.

"Nice Rooms and Customer Service, But Bad Area"

4
613jackiep, Dallas, Texas 23/07/2019

This hotel is not so easy to get to. If you are not paying close attention, you will miss the turn in and have to loop around a bad area to get back. Parking at this hotel is practically non-existent, so you have to park in a lot one block over. I literally prayed our car would be okay parked over night and it was. The hotel is across the street from Boston Medical Center and Boston University Medical Center which means ambulances are coming and going non-stop with sirens blaring (they provide ear plugs in the rooms, but we couldn't hear much from our room on the back side). There were all types of people walking up and down the street in the front of the hotel, so keep that in mind, and I will keep it at that. There were also some ladies strolling up and down the street behind the hotel at night. The hotel itself is fine. Hotel staff worked hard to make our visit comfortable and enjoyable. Outstanding job. I'm guessing this hotel is convenient for families with loved ones in the hospitals across the street. We used our points for this booking; otherwise, we may not have stayed here on the last night of our vacation before flying home the next day. It was definitely an eye opening experience.

Staff friendly, helpful, shuttle bus driver was amazing to ensure he got us to our Hospital appointment on time. Breakfast was good, rooms clean and large. Convenient location. Noise level from outside was a bit loud but not as bad as other places we have stayed. Loved the ear plugs they provided although we did not use them. Would definitely recommend Best Western plus Boston. The price was right!!! Floors were nice and quiet.

Footsloggers, Ottawa, Canada 22/07/2019

Having read all the reviews for this hotel I'd like to put searchers mind at rest. Yes, the area is dodgy but the hotel facilities and central location more than make up for the neighbourhood. We walked to a local diner, the Liberty, for several meals and didn't feel threatened at all. It's by no means a safe area after dark but if common sense prevails you'll come to no harm. Just take a cab everywhere if you're nervous! The hotel itself has great staff, very accommodating, friendly and polite. On our last morning we were taken up the road to the Diner by the shuttle bus as it was scorching hot outdoors!! The rooms were well appointed, great linens, bedding spotless and lots of towels for the bathroom. We were a group of four adults sharing one room and there was plenty of space, on a long weekend of record breaking temperatures the air conditioning was amazing, quiet and extremely efficient. Pity there was only one of the two elevators working as it meant for quite a few long waits getting to and from floor 6, there seemed to be multiple excuses as to why it wasn't fixed in four days? Nevertheless, a good hotel and one I would recommend.

We truly appreciate your detailed review and we know that our future guests will as well. It's wonderful to hear that you were able to take advantage of our convenient location and that everyone in your party enjoyed our spacious, comfortable rooms.

"Terrible neighborhood, fine hotel"

kamandatory, West Yarmouth, Massachusetts 22/07/2019

We happened to arrive on the hottest day of the year, which may have something to do with why the lobby was so hot, the candy in the vending machine was visibly melting. The staff was pleasant, and the place was clean. The room had a window AC unit, which I had never seen in a hotel before... but it did the job. There was also a fan in the room, which I thought was a very cool bonus, as I need one to sleep most of the time. It smelled weird, but I assume they use some strong cleaning solutions since it's a pet friendly hotel, so left it at that. I was scared when I saw the earplugs on the nightstand... but I didn't use them, and I never heard a peep. The area that this hotel is in the middle of is known to locals as "Methadone Mile". Just stepping outside the hotel, once you pass by the armed guard, you will see people using drugs, withdrawing from drugs, nodding out from drugs, or asking you for money to buy drugs. It is truly scary and sad. Again, the hotel itself is fine, but do yourself a favor and get your Lyft or Uber right at the door!

User 18/07/2019

I was in town for a conference and stayed three nights. Though not the greatest neighborhood, as other reviewers mentioned, the hotel had security and I felt quite secure. There was a plenty sufficient hot breakfast in the morning, and the room was very clean. I heard several staffers speaking Spanish to guests, which I thought was a good selling point for travelers. The only thing I found frustrating was that the different front desk workers gave different answers about the shuttle services -- one saying they'd take us to Northeastern and come back for us, but another refusing to send the shuttle later in the day. All three shuttle drivers I spoke to over the course of my stay, however, said they absolutely would do that drop off and pick up. We ended up having to call an Uber a few times, though, since when we called the shuttle the front desk wouldn't always send it. It seems there is some confusion among the staff.

User 16/07/2019

The room was clean and comfortable, as usual. The staff on duty at the front desk and especially in the breakfast room were friendly and accommodating. One complaint: Our room was not facing the road but the heavy equipment rental place in the back, which is for some reason a source of loud banging noises throughout the night. The rooms in front are quieter, although traffic noise comes through. Luckily earplugs are provided! An oasis of respite in the south end of Boston.

"DON't DO IT"

User 15/07/2019

This hotel is in a very questionable neighborhood. Homeless people/drug users surround it. Was approached numerous times for money. Bars on all lower windows, security guard in front lobby. Only 8 parking spots on actual premises, the rest are across the street where you are warned to park at your own risk. There is no where to unload your luggage so you have to schlep your belongings. As far as I could tell, there were only 2 luggage carts and they were quite elusive to find. Staff went looking but came up empty handed too. Only 1 elevator working so wait time was excessive. If you are able bodied, I guess it would be tolerable but when traveling with a person in a wheelchair, this place is the pits. A/c in room not consistent. Told management daily but was assured it was working fine.. have a photo showing thermostat at 77 degrees during the night.

"Great BUT READ REVIEW"

User 11/07/2019

The hotel staff here are great and the rooms are extremely clean I had no issues with the hotel itself other than AC not working I didn't saw on other views that people had very similar experiences with that not working that was my only gripe. The breakfast on the other hand was the best breakfast I ever had at a hotel I look forward to it every single day and took full advantage of it staff down there kept it very clean it was organized had lots of varieties of food and I was very good quality and I was impressed with that. The room itself had great amenities everything was very clean and organized it was a very modern. However if you're not familiar with the area outside they call it and quotations methadone mile there's a lot of people out there that use drugs we saw needles and on the ground so people doing drugs many people approach you when you're outside of the hotel asking for money. Although I'm telling you this don't let this deter you from staying here at the hotel staff takes all precautions necessary and did an incredible job of combating that they had great and professional security staff that was watched outside of the hotel and car is parked in the Best Western Lots all staff was aware of the situation outside and was very helpful with directions or how to get around certain places of traffic to the city overall I thought this is a great experience with my only gripe being the AC not working in the hotel but for others not where the area just know that they do call it methadone Mile and there's a lot of drug addicts and needles around their hope this doesn't deter you just wanted to give you an honest review of the hotel I stayed it was a great experience overall!

"Beautiful hotel on the outskirts of town"

The reviews are true about this hotel being in a seedy part of town.However, We walked over to the restaurant across the street & nobody bothered us w/soever. Just don't plan on strolling around after dark. All the rooms are suites & very modern. Great bed, great shower & all super clean but not very large. A great deal in the midst of a town w/ alot of very overpriced rooms. Free parking & free b/fast, as well. We would certainly stay here again. Recommended. Be blessed & maybe drive down into town instead of catching the hotel shuttle to the train. Just a suggestion.

It was late night when we checked in for medical purposes at Dana Farber and we'd never been to Boston before. It's nothing special outside but inside is friendly, clean and very comfortable. Parking is free as is the delicious breakfast. Room was spacious and beds were so comfy. Staff helpful and friendly. Highly recommend

"Awful hotel, stay away"

User 08/07/2019

I wish I could give this hotel a worse review. Stayed at the hotel July 4th weekend to see Phish and thought it would be a great option since it was close to the venue and dog friendly. One word to describe this stay: a mistake. The hotel is infested with flies and there were dead bugs literally crushed onto the walls in the room we were staying. Our first floor room had windows that did not lock and there were about 3 junkies sleeping under our window each night we stayed there. When we returned from the concert Saturday night, there was no electricity in the hotel-is that a joke? We also watched a young kid who was getting off work get jumped as soon as he left his place of work. The area is so sketchy and none of what is advertised about the hotel is true. Lastly, and this is the kicker, the overnight staff accused my guest and I of bringing people back to the hotel and smoking in our room and "refused to answer the door when the manager was banging on the door." THAT NEVER HAPPENED. Instead, of checking their cameras they automatically charged me a fee that has still not been refunded, not to mention the manager acted like she was doing me a huge favor when this event was completely fabricated by her staff. Instead of accusing guests who are paying to be there of something that never happened the hotel should probably concentrate on being able to accept cash (WTF kind of hotel doesn't accept cash) and keeping heroin addicts from sleeping in their parking lot under guests windows. I will be calling my bank for a full refund.

GM_Front_Desk, General Manager at Best Western Plus Boston Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your recent stay. We hope that you enjoyed the Phish concert. However, we sincerely apologize that you experienced issues with pests and that your room did not meet your expectations. We also apologize that our staff did not provide you with the level of service that you deserve. Any cleaning fee that is incurred by a guest is always thoroughly investigated prior to the fee being charged. If you have any questions regarding the fee, we would be happy to discuss it with you directly. We also regret that the location of the hotel was not what you had hoped. We understand that the city has an issue with homeless people, and the hotel is doing everything to work with the city officials to try and resolve this problem. It would be an honor to be given another chance to change your perspective and provide you with the level of stay that you deserve.

"Poor Location"

This location felt unsafe. It was not suitable to walk a pet. There is signage in the handicap accessible parking spot to "park at your own risk." Previous reviews mention these concerns and I agree with them.

Thank you for taking the time to reach out and share your valuable feedback regarding your recent stay at our property. We're saddened to hear that we were not able to deliver the quality of stay you were hoping for. Please accept our apologies relating to the location of the hotel, and we fully understand your concerns. The city does have an issue with homeless people, but we are working hard with the city officials on resolving this problem. However, the safety of our guests remains our number one priority, and we have a security guard on site every night, as well as video cameras in the lobby and entranceway. We hope you'll consider staying with us on another occasion so we can deliver a much better experience.

This hotel is clean, well organized and goes up and beyond to answer questions from customers. The hotel is within walking distance to the Art Museum, Fenway Park, and the Cathedral of the Holy Cross. I would definitely stay at this hotel when planning another trip to Boston.

"Nice room but..."

Delicia W, Savannah, Georgia 02/07/2019

Room was nicely configured and the bathroom was spacious. Be aware that the hotel is near a major hospital so you will hear sirens through out the night. They do provide sound proof ear plugs. It is also a little ways as far as walking is concerned from the freedom trail but not too far from public transportation and Uber was a lifesaver. Lovely diner within walking distance for breakfast!

Hotel staff and hotel amenities were excellent, however the hotel is not in a great part of town. Police positioned outside at all times. Cargo containers on the move all night long which were extremely noisy.

"Great rooms, sketchy location "

802annei, Atlantis, Florida 01/07/2019

Absolutely lovely hotel, especially for the price. Seems to have been renovated recently, rooms are large (ours was a suite, which very comfortably accommodated our family of 4). Beds are super comfy. Drawbacks are the location- not someplace you would want to walk around at night. That's what Uber's for! Also directly under a flight path. They provide complimentary ear plugs, and I had no problem sleeping. This Best Western punches above its weight in terms of the experience, but it might not make a good base of operations for a family visit to Boston due to the location.

GM_Front_Desk, General Manager at Best Western Plus Boston Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Anne, Many thanks for your positive rating of Best Western Plus Boston! Our team is delighted that you enjoyed our spacious, comfortable, updated accommodations. It's regrettable that you felt uncomfortable in our surrounding area and we're working with the city to resolve that. That said, it's great to know our earplugs helped you sleep soundly, and that your stay was pleasant. We value your thoughtful praise and hope you'll return!

"Nice hotel... wrong location!"

644reneea, New Westminster 26/06/2019

My husband and I did enjoy our stay at this hotel however, we were told by our Uber driver NOT to go out at night in the neighborhood... One block away is the prison and the "zombie" zone meaning homeless and drug addicts... I often stay at hotels by myself when traveling for work and if I had to stay here alone, I would have been freaking out. With the zomibe zone also comes lots of noise at night.

"French door leading from living room to bedroom; great breakfast"

User 25/06/2019

My room was excellent - loved the decor and atmosphere and french door leading from the living room to the bedroom. This was a perfect stay for my weeklong work trip - simple, no fluff, with everything I wanted and needed...including a deluxe continental breakfast. The only downside is there are many ambulatory and police vehicles and a generally busy street outside the premises - ear plugs at night cancelled this noise and was not an issue for me.

oldwarthog1, Gloucester, United Kingdom 24/06/2019

Lovely hotel, friendly staff, nice breakfast, comfy beds in large well decorated rooms......unfortunately let down by poor double glazing, no prior warnings given until you enter your bedroom to find ear defenders......so this is a known problem to the Hotel. If you wish to stay awake and listen to all the sirens and noise pollution from the street all night then this is the ideal place for you to stay. A good hotel spoilt by something that could easily be rectified.

"It's Okay - however - Really bad area!!!"

Coroona, Adelaide, Australia 17/06/2019

Booked ahead on Agoda and got a great rate per night US$109 per night. We stayed two nights. On the last day we wanted to extend by one day. The rate had changed to US $585 per night. We refused to extend the extra night and booked into a major international hotel in the heart of the city at a materially lower rate than they quoted. It was a hassle but we were not going to be ripped off. The hotel is excellent, great rooms , clean, modern , really good breakfast with fantastic staff and security. It's in a terrible area, next to a drug rehabilitation hospital.its quite scary to venture outside the hotel to the shops / supermarket across the road. Summary 1. Providing you get a realistic/ commercial/ acceptable room rate the hotel is a really good 3 star hotel. 2. Staff fantastic 3. They run a shuttle bus to key points in the city. I would shop hard for a central hotel in a safe area before I booked here again.

Dear Coroona, Thank you for leaving us your review. It was our pleasure to provide you with clean accommodations, delicious breakfast, comfy rooms, and an amazing staff. We work diligently to make our guests feel welcomed, comfortable, and like they have a second home here. While our location may not have been ideal for you, we do make sure we have quality security officers to make our guests feel safe. Please accept our apologies for the room rates, a surge in room pricing may just mean that the rooms were in high demand for that day. Nonetheless, we are happy to have had you for those two days and hope to welcome you back in the future. Take care.

MCMelB39, Hanover, Minnesota 16/06/2019

Staff very friendly and accommodating. Room was a suite and fabulous for our family of 5. Yummy breakfast in the mornings and the two gentlemen who worked the breakfast were fabulous. The location was not great. Police officer always outside 24/7 and many people just roaming around outside. Was fine during the day, but we didn't go out after dinner. Elevators were under construction, so that was a bit of an inconvenience. Hospital right across the street, so some siren noise, but not terrible.

"Terrible Area - On the Methadone Mile"

Jdoro325, Rochester Hills, Michigan 12/06/2019

Terrible location and hotel issues with HVAC / elevator. Manage HVAC despite numerous calls did not work and it was 75 degrees in our room all night. While we were standing in the lobby waiting to go out, a couple of fireman were there looking at surveillance tapes because someone down the street started a building fire and ran by the hotel in the daylight hours. They told my wife and I do not walk away from the hotel, nor take the subway in that area always use Uber or Lyft.. The reason is there is a very large Methadone center in the hospital that is close by. Therefore all the Meth heads hang out on Massachusetts Avenue which is where the hotel is! At $350 a night there are many other hotels to stay at that you can walk from.

User 09/06/2019

If you stay here, request a room away from the street. The outside noise was hard to avoid at 4:00 am. We experienced a car 'concert' from a nearby parking lot that woke us up. Then within the hour witnessed an arrest directly below our winfow.

"Too noisy"

PlainSong, London 05/06/2019

The room was well appointed while the staff were generally very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included in the deal and was OK but not great. The location of the hotel lets it down. There is little of note nearby given it is on the edge of the Newmarket industrial area and close to the Boston Medical Centre. Fine if you need the medical centre but it does mean being disturbed by sirens and large trucks passing by at all times during the night. Being under the Logan Airport flight path doesn't help either. You know you are in trouble when you find the hotel leaves earplugs by the side of the bed - not that the earplugs were particularly effective. Given we could hear the conversations in the street outside while four floors up, it is time to renew the window glazing with something more effective.

GM_Front_Desk, General Manager at Best Western Plus Boston Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. It was our pleasure to provide you with friendly assistance and a complimentary breakfast. Please accept our sincere apology for noise that disturbed your rest, and we regret that the earplugs we provided weren't entirely successful at alleviating the situation.

"Horrible, Humiliating Experience"

1
User 02/06/2019

This hotel is located in a rather seedy location, and has armed security in the lobby (sometimes right in your face as soon as the second set of doors open). The hotel staff initially seemed quite pleasant, little did I know that the hotel staff and security watch your every move. Part of my work involves conducting recorded interviews. Given the amenities surrounding the hotel, I decided to conduct two interviews from my hotel room. Upon entering the hotel with my 2nd interview I proceeded to the elevator and as soon as I reached the elevators the security guard came running up from behind and immediately asked me to come with him.We only walked a few feet away from the elevator when he began questioning me as to what I was doing and who I was bringing to the hotel, stating that he and the hotel staff had seen me bring another guest earlier. This was highly unnerving, and caught me completely off guard. I had no idea that my stay was being continuously monitored. I explained my line of work and the basis for having my two guests. Subsequently, the security guard attempted to defend the basis for his inquiry. Regardless, the damage had already been done, and the episode was so humiliating that my guest felt too uncomfortable to sit for the interview. I can appreciate the need to maintain a safe environment, but In this situation the security guard really overstepped. I travel regularly for business and have made it a point to stay with Best Western whenever possible. Given this experience I may need to reconsider my choice and accommodations.

A methadone clinic, jail, homeless shelter x2 and a garbage transfer station within a couple of blocks sets the stage for this hotel. I was approached for money before I even exited the cab upon arrival. Hotel was fine but dated and came with ear plugs, not a good sign. Don't know why it is considered a Best Western Plus.

Raymond James O, Belleville, Illinois 27/05/2019

This has to be the most unusual Best Western Plus Motel I have ever stayed in! This Motel is actually round which gives it a very unique lay-out everywhere especially in the rooms. It is hard to explain but you will love it. What was really screwy was the big screen TV was in the separate bed room and not in the living area with the couch. The Staff was absolute outstanding. They are extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the city and where to eat great meals. The only down side is that it is located in a less than desirable neighborhood!

CRoberts1, Chicago, Illinois 27/05/2019

The staff at this hotel is simply outstanding. Friendly and always willing to help - hotel staffs don't get much better than this. Complimentary breakfast is far better than what most hotels offer. No, the neighborhood isn't good, but it's not as bad as you might think. The shuttles to the T stations are great. My only complaint is that that the rooms are old and need to be refurbished. My room was clearly a smoking allowed room in the past, and not enough was done to get rid of the odors, which seemed old. Other rooms might be better. I wish the owners would put as much care into the facilities as the staff does into their jobs.

"Crash landing for hospital visit goes well!"

coddog, Brewster, Massachusetts 23/05/2019

With a family member at Brigham and Women's Hospital just under 2 miles away, we were unable to find accommodations in a hurry nearby and landed at the Best Western Plus Boston. The price was excellent! The neighborhood was not so great, but once we entered the doors at the hotel it was like another world. Rooms were spacious and comfortable, the beds were really comfy, and the staff went out of their way to help us with everything we needed. The building itself is circular and quite interesting, I wish I had taken the time to find out its history! For dinner we took a 5 minute walk to the nearby dona havana Cuban restaurant and had an amazing experience with fun food and atmosphere, highly recommend that too! The hotel also offers the shuttle to the hospital and other local areas which we did not take advantage of. This is a great jumping-off place, don't pass it by!

"Amazing staff, awful and unsafe neighborhood"

Laura G, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 23/05/2019

Let me start by saying the hotel staff was amazing. Everyone was friendly, happy and went out of their way to make our stay amazing. Our first room the AC stopped working and they immediately sent the engineer and changed our room. Front desk answered every question. Breakfast staff made us feel welcome and valued every day. BUT - the neighborhood... I felt very unsafe just stepping two feet off the property. There was security at the hotel, and I felt safe in the hotel. But I didn't even attempt to walk anywhere and didn't even try to go out further than a walk from the front door to a cab with my child. So great staff, comfy bed, clean rooms, but just an unfortunate location.

Decent hotel at a decent price. But it definitely seems like the hotel rooms could use some enhancements/updates! Pros: - Free and reliable WiFi - Free Breakfast - Friendly Staff Cons - Bathtub had cracks and rusty drain - Loud HVAC system

"Dangerous location!!"

User 22/05/2019

We knew we made a poor choice when ALL and our uber drivers said “Do NOT go outside” when they dropped us off/picked us up from the hotel. They call this area “Methadone Mile” because there is a vagrant drug problem. A man started yelling and banging on our window at 7AM. It lasted for almost 15 minutes. We were on the ground floor, and could just hear frightening things from outside. We had absolutely NO problems with the staff and the rooms were clean and perfectly fine. I just don't think for $300 per night you should feel unsafe.

We appreciate you staying with us and taking the time to leave us a review. It's great to know that our attention to cleanliness and service impressed you. However, we apologize for any concerns about the area. We are aware of the issue and working with city officials to address it. Should you be in the city again, we'd be grateful for the chance to offer you the safe, secure experience you seek.

The hotel is in a relatively central location to downtown Boston. The hotel front desk staff was very accommodating in presenting a sheet of paper with recommended restaurants, historic sight seeing places and how to get around Boston. A personal recommendation is to go to Bar Lyon (within 5 -10 minute walk) Great food and atmosphere!! I would like to say that the front desk staff (especially Clare) but all staff were very professional, helpful and very accommodating when checking into the hotel and assisted me with any questions. Highly recommend this hotel as the price was reasonable and clean.

I stayed here because of they are a brand name, near down town and easy to find. Except for the hourly sirens from ambulances or fire trucks racing by throughout the night, it was a nice clean place to stay.

Stayed the night at the Best Western because it was the cheapest I could find. The room was clean, large, and the shower worked great. My room did face the street and I could hear the police or fire sirens as they passed by the hotel. I plan to stay there again when I return to Boston for business.

We have stayed in Boston several times over the last four years and usually stay in Quincy. This time we tried the “round” Best Western. It's in walking distance of Berklee and had parking for our cargo van we brought to move our graduate. The staff is super helpful with directions, tips and ideas. They even loaned out umbrellas! Breakfast offered a variety and was one of the best we have had. The neighborhood is on the edge of sketchy but there was always a security guard in the lobby. Outside was a bit noisy with the hospital nearby but ear plugs are offered in the rooms. We were very happy with our long weekend at Best Western and would definitely stay there again. And they have warm cookies every afternoon!

This hotel is located on "meth mile". There were drugs & police activity all night. Do NOT bring children!My children are still having nightmares from the stay here. Not just visually disturbing but loud and obnoxious at all hours of the night. The police run the people away..they come right back all night long!

The hotel itself is clean, the rooms are nice and the staff are extremely nice. The hotel is located in an industrial area near a homeless shelter. The hotel has a security guard there 24 hours. We did not have any issues, however there is a large presence of homeless people, it is really sad.

"Terrible neighbourhood"

shishi515, Unionville, Canada 20/04/2019

Worse neighbourhood to stay for a family vacation. Just because we had a dog, we stayed here but I would rather pay triple the money and stay somewhere else safe. There was a guy hiding behind the parking and shooting drugs and throwing a needle under the truck. My young kids witnessed it from the room window. There was a security guard on duty 24/7 outside and told him but I don't think he did anything. Do not waste your time and money here.

The Hotel was clean other than a few problems we had with the room. Good complementary Breakfast. When we arrived, the bathroom smelled of cigarette smoke. Obviously, a previous guest violated the Non-smoking policy. When we complained to the desk clerk, she immediately assigned us to another room and gave us the business card of the Hotel Manager and insisted that we report it to him. The neighborhood is near a homeless shelter, but is very secure. Security guard on premises, cameras view the parking lot and the area was very secure. Two good restaurants nearby and recommended by the desk clerk. We have been and will continue to be repeat guests due to proximity to Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Price varies significantly week to week depending on the event in Boston. Red Sox opening Day, price went up. Day of Boston Marathon, price went up significantly.

User 08/04/2019

Hotel room was clean and updated. Staff was friendly, even the vendors we seen. The breakfast was very tasty and was a wide variety. Would have liked to see flavored creamers or flavored coffee tho. Small parking lot, but it was free. Also liked the armed security guard who was out within 90 seconds of a car alarm going off (we had a veiw of the parking lot) it is downtown right by the hospital so we expected some noise however there was construction that started at 4am! Not the hotels fault but would have liked a warning. They did provide ear plugs in the room though, so assuming they had people complain before. Would definitely recommend to people.

First impression goes a long way! That's what both my wife & I experienced through Best Western! The welcoming staff & amenities BW Plus has to offer was impressive. Great breakfast selections & shuttle services to Back Bay & Andrew-Red Line is a bonus for visitors. Rooms are clean & beds are very comfortable. What else can you ask for? It is discomforting to see high security around the premises but it does warrant attention because of the neighborhood. That would be the only drawback but I felt secured during my stay there. I would not hesitate to stay here again in the future.

Yes, we are thrilled with the service here at the Boston Best Western. Everyone has been so friendly and helpful. This is my first time to Boston and we are traveling for college visits in the area. Okemia Credle has really been looking out for us (my daughter and myself) and she goes the extra mile in helping us get to where we need to go. She has set up shuttles, arranged for tours in the area, and made an arrangement for us to get to Northeastern tomorrow morning. Our shuttle driver was also very friendly. Everyone seems to enjoy working here and in turn that helps us to enjoy our stay in Boston. Thank you for such a positive experience. Also, everything is real clean and very nice. We were given earplugs to help with road noise, but I don't think that I will need them.

Y6317NXmelissa, Wayne, New Jersey 10/03/2019

The hotel inside was clean and modern and the room was spacious and comfortable. For the money, this hotel is a value for the Boston area. But, before you book your stay, you should be aware that the hotel is located near a homeless shelter and methadone clinic. There are many homeless, and people under the influence of substances in the area of the hotel. I did not encounter any bad situations, but some people may find this uncomfortable. Also, the area is very noisy at night time. I usually sleep with a window open because I like the cool, fresh air at night. Having the window open amplified the sirens (the hotel is short distance from a hospital), dump trucks, and helicopter sounds heard throughout the night. My second night was better, as I used the provided earplugs, and slept a distance from the window. Overall, I would visit this hotel again, because the staff was extremely friendly, I felt safe in the hotel, and the room was spacious and clean.

This hotel provided friendly staff, excellent service. Rooms and other areas were clean. Quick Uber rides to many Boston locations. Only reason for 4-out-of-5 rating is that the price was a little higher than I typically like to pay, but may have been in line with other Boston hotels. (We stayed here to be with family who had already booked, so I did not research other hotels in the area.) Breakfast was good, staff in the dining area could not have been more helpful or friendly. Room amenities were as expected. A very pleasant stay!

Use to be a great place to stay during business trips into Boston, it is no longer a place I would feel safe at or go back to. The stench of weed is all over the hotel and one can not escape it even in the rooms. The amount of police that were in the lobby and around the hotel during the night was rather disquieting, the hotel security did nothing but stand in a corner. The door to the room was on a tilt so bad you could see into the hall way through the door frame.

The hotel reception area was well lit and well maintained. The rooms seem recently renovated. The breakfast area was clean and well stocked. The breakfast staff was the highlight of my stay. Hotel parking is located in two unmanned open surface lots with varying lighting not immediately attached to the hotel property. I highlight this because the hotel is located in a bit of a dodgy area. Concerning enough that I dropped family off first before parking. To be honest guests likley choose this hotel for its value and certainly not location.

The hotel and the rooms were very large and spacious. The breakfast was free and decent for grab and go stuff. The hotel staff was friendly, nice and helpful. The parking is free but not secure and you are in a pretty sketchy area. There is nowhere to pull up and unload/load your luggage (or small children that we had). It was wet and snowy and no clear path was shoveled. The price was unbeatable. For the one night we had to stay it was fine. If you are planning a vacation stay out of south Boston so you feel safe walking around the city.

Pauromvil, Santiago, Chile 19/02/2019

Not one of my favorite best western hotels but at a very reasonable price. Comfortable and large rooms with a small living area. Good selection for breakfast. There's a target few steps away if you want to get something to eat at the hotel, rooms have microwave and a small living area as I mentioned before. Loud was not really a big problem for me or my family Not a great location, its actually far from the main sightseeing area but they have a really good shuttle system to go downtown and get back

Dear Paula, Thank you for taking the time to reach out after your recent stay with us.

Good value within 10 minutes by car of major areas like longwood and the aquarium. The immediate area is low income and not walkable to sites. The hotel was clean, had updated rooms, free parking, and a free breakfast.

Here at Best Western Plus Boston, we work hard to offer guests an unbeatable value, and we are so proud that our clean and modern accommodations and complimentary amenities made your time worthwhile!

"Drugs and noise"

CT-FamilyTrip, Guilford, Connecticut 18/02/2019

Interior of hotel was fine, rooms acceptable...but you are taking your own life into your hands if you choose to stay here. Arrived on a Friday evening around 7pm...stepped out of the car to drug paraphernalia (used needles) all over the parking lot. Walked around the corner to find a man crouched behind another car “shooting up.” We were locked into two nights for a youth sports team outing, took our chances and survived...but will never even come close to this Best Westen ever again

Once again, thank you for sharing your feedback, and we wish you all the best in your future travels.

I was pleased with my room comfort. Very clean, newly renovated. Comfortable beds! Fridge but no microwave in our room. However, lobby had a microwave for people to use. No blow dryer in room. Still clean quality hotel. When you factor in the value you can't beat it! We had a 350 truck very happy to get a parking lot and not a garage and it was very close. You have a couple gas stations, pizza and Mc Donalds a minute walk from Hotel lobby. I was always greeted coming and going and the staff was always smiling. Breakfast had many choices like eggs, a meat, oatmeal, 6 cereals, pastries, potatoes with toppings, yogurt, oranges, bananas and a bowl of melons, bread, bagels and more. Something for everyone. Very cool rounded building. If you are picky and high standards yet frugal...you'll be pleased. I was very pleased with my coice and I'll be back!

This hotel was easy to get to and is in a cool building in a convenient location in Boston. The staff was friendly. It is a pet friendly hotel, and I was with my pet, but I thought it was weird that they would put pet owners on the first floor of a very busy city on a busy intersection. The noise of people checking in, walking by, cars driving by all night is not pet-friendly. Plus the carpets were covered in stains that I can only assume are from previous pet visits. The carpet did not seem properly cleaned, so I'm not surprised there were so many stains. I was worried my pet would go to the bathroom over an existing stain just because there were so many and it was hard to tell what was clean and what was not. Luckily we went outside and he is a good house-trained dog.

We were delighted to welcome you and your best friend in during your trip to Boston! It's great that our friendly team members made you feel at home, as nothing makes us happier. In regards to room placement, we typically place pet owners on the first floor for convenience to the outside. Also, we thank you for bringing the carpet to our attention; housekeeping will take care of it immediately. We hope that on your next trip to our city, you'll allow us to host you again!

This hotel is great. The bed was so comfortable, you felt totally in a cloud. The service was great as well. We were Allowed to leave our car there after we checked out the next day to take their free shuttle to and from the T-line, So we were able to enjoy downtown Boston without the headaches of parking the car. I highly Recommend this hotel and the price is fantastic.

TheOneWhoLovesTravel, Vernon Rockville, Connecticut 07/02/2019

Stayed there for one night for a conference. I really liked their service - you feel like you are in 5-star hotel: they great you with a smile, and always happy to help. The location is convenient to a nearby hospital and highway. If you have a car, I do suggest to just park it there and take Uber as there are only so many parking spots at the hotel. Although limited, Parking is free, which is great. The rooms are fresh, modern, with very comfy bed. Bathroom amenities are really cool. There is some outside noise that could be heard in the room, so they provide ear plugs. I did not use them and still slept well (perhaps I was very tired). Security is good (they have someone on site watching). I used to live in Boston, and even without security, the area is fine. If you plan to go to Boston, this place should be on your list.

DWOtruth, Hartford, Connecticut 31/01/2019

Nice room, free parking, great breakfast. A lot of hotel room for the money. My only complaint this time was that my brother was not able to make it and when I called in advance to modify the reservation the local manager refused to reduce the price. Once I went to central reservations they cancelled my original and rebooked at the lower price. Just an unnecessary inability to locally accommodate a customer.

This hotel was newly renovated. The lobby and rooms as well. Each room is considered a suite with a pull out couch. Coffee maker was provided in the room and the lobby as well. Although the hotel is a mile or so from downtown, it was great taking ubers to see more of the city. The good news, the prices were very reasonable - so we stayed several days instead of just one.

This hotel is really nice! The room was even better!! Not only that, but the staff are very accommodating.

I will definitely stay here again!

A good night sleep near Boston Medical Center. The security of the area is not great but inside the hotel is more than fine. The mattress is better, and the room darkening curtains are an improvement over the nearby Hampton Inn. On site parking.

My husband and I had to leave our home do to construction going on. We have a dog and had to find a place last minute. Everyone was amazing from being very helpful during the reservation process to checking in. There was a very nice security guard making sure we were safe because we checked in very late at night. It was very clean! There was free parking (you can't find that in Boston). Even though the area is known for homeless because it is conveniently located by the hospital it is very safe. I would stay here again! The room was very nice with a lounge area and free Wi-Fi.

Overall it was a nice stay. The parking is a little hard to understand when you first get there because we didn't see any signs of where to park. There was a map inside once we went to check in. The staff was very friendly. The lobby got a little noisy during the night, but other than that great. I do wish the rooms had microwaves in them.

One reason we choose this hotel was for the free parking, but we arrived around 9:30 pm and barely felt safe walking from the parking lot, which is on the other side of a small adjacent road, to the front door. Once inside it was great - good service, nice rooms (beds are really high which might matter to some people), breakfast was great.

We really like this hotel. The staff is helpful and friendly. There are free breakfast and free shuttle to bus stations. The room is big and can fit for a group of 5. The room is also very clean and the price is very affordable. The hotel is located near downtown and it takes only 10-15 minutes to walk to many restaurants. However, there are some panhandlers or homeless around the location. I see this problem in all the big cities which we have travelled. This should be solved by the local counties or cities. I will recommend my friends to stay in this hotel if they visit Boston.

Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The bed was extremely comfortable. Remember you're in a city, loud noises of the environment is a given. They do provided noise canceling earplugs for those who need them. Breakfast was really yummy. Options from making your own waffles to cereal. There are two workers tending the area making sure it is clean and full. Free parking with free shuttles to local t-stations, places of interest, and local hospitals. Perfect for if you are visiting someone at the hospital and don't want to pay for the high garage/valet parking fees.

What a delightful surprise to walk in the door and find what looked like a brand new, upscale designer hotel! The reception people were friendly and efficient, the shuttle "captain" recommended an Amazing restaurant for seafood that was crazy great and not even terribly expensive and he was there waiting for us just as we wrapped up eating to return is to the hotel! The beds were so comfortable, it's the first time I actually feel asleep before 11:00pm in ages! The mini suite was really well accommodated with desk and couch and I loved the fluffy towels and citrus scented soaps and shampoos! 10 stars!!!

Nicohom, Utrecht, The Netherlands 18/12/2018

I booked for two nights of the hotel. Due to the sickness, I can only use the second day. It is a non-refundable reservation. When I arrived, the staff first told me agoda cancelled my booking so I can only call them to solve it. I called the customer service at Agoda and they told me they never has done that. I went back to ask my room back they still insisted needing time to speak to agoda. I am waiting here now still don't know what the result will be.

The room was very nice, had a little sitting area with a wonderful size refrigerator. You have to go to the lobby to use the microwave, not a big deal though because every night they make cookies, you can have your dessert while warming up dinner! Everything was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. Breakfast I thought was very good. There was hot food, eggs, sausage, potatoes, oatmeal, waffles and your cold items too. If you left there hungry, that was your own fault. Something for everyone. Area the hotel is in is a little shady area but we had no issues. Close to the Hynes Convention Center, that is where we were for a conference. The reception folks are wonderful. Worth the stay.

The hotel is very simply decorated. The room was reasonable,but nothing more. Very limited range of breakfast dishes. The reception service was not always welcoming. Fully equipped fitness room, clean and equipped with towels and bottled water.

The location of the hotel is not good but it's 20min walking to the city centre :) The room on the 7th floor was kinda beautiful ! Now, the breakfast was very good and the place very clean ! The staff was great ! A young lady at the breakfast called me by my name every morning and all the other staff was great and friendly too! At reception, Deginet went always above and beyond to make my stay good! Housekeeping team was great when taking care of my room :)

Our cab driver said that it was methadone mile. sure enough there were many people across the street with lots of trash that they looks very homeless. I think someone slept next to my car because there was a blanket and my mirror was pushed in. other than the neighborhood the hotel is very nice itself I enjoyed the breakfast that I was comfortable the score was nice and overall the room is clean.

The neighborhood is not great but the hotel is really nice. Also, the design of the building is really cool, apparently in the 19th century it was an oil refilling station/tank....... There was some noise from the street below but it wasnt too bad.

One of the nicest rooms I have seen in a Best Western... but the area was a little sketchy to say the least... But comparing prices to other Boston hotels this one came in at about half.... My buddies went for a stroll and said they wouldn't probably walk those streets at night but I personally never felt like it was unsafe... I would recommend for buddies out to see a game or other events maybe not so much for young families.. I would definitely stay there again

"No plus here"

Seamari305, Miami, Florida 11/11/2018

There is nothing Plus about this hotel. The neighborhood is dangerous. Imagine armed guard in reception area. Outside full of prostitutes. homeless and drug users/dealers. The rooms are OK but not real “ suites”/ sleep area separated by glass door with sofabed. No privacy. AND the rest of the facility needs a major redo in all common areas. Front desk staff average to poor. When we checked in the rate was lower than what we booked but they would not extend to us. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE, do not recomment, especially traveling with kids.

This Best Western Plus is better than I expected. While it's not much to look at from the outside, it is conveniently located, easy to find, and has the usual clean rooms and common areas I expect at Best Western. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The free shuttle was an great benefit as we traveled back and forth to BWHospital for many days. The security guard at night is very helpful and attentive. You may read some comments about people in the surrounding area, and it is an active area, but if you stay on hotel property you will never see the people in the neighborhood, and they are not the least bit interested in hotel guests. It's a busy but not particularly threatening area.

A very modest and cozy hotel in Boston close to train stations and major attractions. They have shuttle service from hotel to around 3 miless including Backbay South Station and Andrew Station in red line. These stations feed most of the important places. So have a nice cozy breakfast and go move around Boston. Grayling tours start at 8 Park Plaza mall which this hotel has a drop off facility too. 8 Park Plaza mall has PF Chang , Mexican grill outside and Iron Wok Chinese buffet and Pizza , Dublin donut , Backbay sandwich counter. You can start or end your day here with food. Best western plus has a nice front desk, room was great on top floor with great space and 2 double comfortable beds. We enjoyed like anything. Tea coffee till late evening on lobby with cookies in evening. It really surpass our expectations.

They offer shuttle to and from metro stations. For terrific Italian food at low low prices, visit nearby Aldo's Italian. The room staff is great in cleaning the room. The desk staff is pleasant and professional. I have to give a shoutout to William Cavedon at the front desk who was so helpful every time I have a question. It's a short ride to Alexandria old town also.

I check in late and went straight to sleep. When I woke up I found someone's dirty underwear in the shower. Only God knows how many other surfaces weren't cleaned. I'm completely disgusted with my experience here. The manager said he sent someone up right away to remove them right away as if he offered me some sort of free service. Then they offered me a 20% refund which was just disrespectful. Bottom line, just spend a few extra dollars when in Boston and stay at Yotel.

Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. I would like better pillows, the pillows had no support Breakfast was so so, waffles were very good but I didn't care for the eggs. I appreciate the tea/coffee being available 24 hrs/day, just add real milk to the counter for those of us who don't like half & half in their drinks All in all the hotel was comfortable with a bit of Boston history in its past

"A Good Value for Your Money"

Hemingwayhero, Cathedral City, California 25/10/2018

We stayed at the Best Western Roundhouse in Boston for a week last July The hotel is not in the greatest, most convenient area, but for the price it was fine. Our suite was wonderful and the in-room microwave and refrigerator at no extra charge really came in handy. We also we pleasantly surprised that we could use the business center to check our e-mail for free. They offer a shuttle service on a schedule. The hotel is a 15 minute walk from 2 different subway stops, but the location is not the greatest.  Architectural this hotel is, as the name implies, is actually round and has a really cool brick exterior. It felt like South Boston somehow. The breakfast was fully stocked every morning and enough choices to start your day, though there were not nearly enough places to sit. The room itself was plenty big for 5 of us, and promptly cleaned every morning. I know overall there are nicer hotels in Boston, but they are usually a pretty penny. The Roundhouse turned out to be a nice stay for us —and an entertaining one. Never had we witnessed a high crime area of a city up close but from the safe purview of our hotel room. They offer a shuttle service on a schedule. The hotel is a 15 minute walk from 2 different subway stops, but the location is not the greatest.  Our Uber driver told us that this area is a 9 out of 10 on the danger scale; There is a big police presence partly because their station is a block away, but they do nothing to stop the problems in this area. Someone mentioned there is also a methadone clinic nearby which is why these type of people hang around. There is a hospital nearby so there are sirens all day and night for which they supply earplugs on your nightstand. We stayed there for a week and had a wonderful time. It is in a South Boston area where a medical center, a neighborhood and a warehouse district meet. However, the shuttle will take you nearly everywhere you need/want to go and the subway is only a 10-15 minute walk away. We did see panhandlers near our hotel, but that is a problem that all large city downtown areas have. I went out everyday and bought a newspaper and on couple of occasions walked back to the hotel in the evening and was never confronted by one of these individuals. I walked by some drugged out zombies and homeless people, but nothing was ever said. We found the hotel itself to be a great bargain, with excellent rooms. Ours had a nice sitting area away from the beds, fridge and microwave -and a wide view window looking out onto the chaos below and beyond. The sunrises were spectacular each morning. The staff was very helpful and friendly, especially the the breakfast lady. The breakfast itself, billed as a continental, was very plentiful and had a wide selection of things. Anyone who complains about breakfast here does not know what a true continental breakfast usually consists of, or what it looks like. If you are planning to stay in South Boston, start a conversation with the drivers, you will get some useful information, and their opinion of the Red Sox chances! If you plan on spend much time at (or near) the hotel, I wouldn't recommend this one. However, if you would like a hotel at good value for your money and easily accessible to everything in the city, I not only recommend this hotel, I plan on staying there again myself some day.

DanelleKK, Thornton, Colorado 25/10/2018

Clean room, well decorated, building has great character. Location is fine, just a short Uber ride to everything downtown, but there were some sketchy people just outside, on the street. Having an armed guard in the lobby made it feel a little safer. Breakfast was also good. The only reason I regret staying here is the noise that went on throughout the night. There is a heavy equipment yard operating throughout the night just across the street. The hotel provides earplugs which are useless. The level of noise was very excessive. I would caution anyone considering staying here, except maybe hearing impaired guests. The blinds do not close and the light from outside is bright.

Terrible terrible location. Locals refer to it as meth mile accurately as I watched from my hotel window at 1am (because of the noise) drug addicts shoot themselves up leaning against my rental car. The next morning I had to walk around syringes on the sidewalk and kick one away so I could get in my rental car. Inside of hotel is fine.

I don't know WHO is giving this good reviews but read my review! this hotel is in the WORST AREA of Boston!!! the staff is friendly and the rooms are clean, but not worth your safety! I rented a car and parked in the lot across the hotel but did not feel safe even walking the half block during the day. There are people doing drugs at all hours of the day...I never felt safe. I would not recommend this hotel....pay a little more money and stay somewhere safe!

The hotel is an older one that has been remodeled in the last five years. It is a completely round brick building that is really cool on the outside. You get free cookies and coffee every afternoon and breakfast is included. You can make waffles, get cereal, muffins, yogurt, bacon, etc... and sit in a nice dining room with a friendly attendant. There is a free shuttle to and from two train stations and local hospitals. It's on a schedule, so get to the lobby early to get a spot (we had four with us and always got a spot). The room was large with two queen beds, a couch, desk and refrigerator. Our view was not pretty due to the location. It's very sketchy outside, but if you only go out to get in the shuttle with the driver, it's fine. Take the Back Bay shuttle and you can ride the train all over Boston. Very easy. Would it have been nice to avoid the shuttle completely and been near all the sites yes, but those hotels were going for $100 more a night or more, so the 10-15 min shuttle was worth saving us $300+. Overall we enjoyed the hotel.

"It's a shame on the surround area"

User 10/10/2018

Security Guard should make $100K a year, no doubt! I was there on Sunday night, came in at midnight. Awful surroundings. I read the reviews though and couldn't wait to get in my room to get away from the public around the area. I get to my room, and it was very cold. Well, the window was wide open and there is no screen. I closed it, but it wouldn't lock. I was on the 3rd floor but it was reachable from the ground. I tried to sleep and couldn't with the screaming/fighting right outside my window. I believe the security guard fought off anywhere from 3 to 5 bystanders that we're obviously trying to cause trouble. I stayed up from the moment I got there, until breakfast time at 6am. Finally got a bit of sleep from 7 to 10, and then cancelled my stay for the next night and got out of there. I can't believe people were staying there with lil kids. The hotel was kind enough not to charge me for the 2nd night even though I cancelled late.

HappyTails2002, Orange, California 09/10/2018

As much as I like this hotel, but had I known the area better, I would have chosen another place to stay... a few blocks up and spent the extra money. The area is really tough. You will hear sirens almost regularly - hence, the ear plugs at the side of the bed. If you stay, I suggest not walking anywhere, but take an Uber/Lyft even for a few blocks and get dropped off. Then you can walk until your hearts content. I never felt threatened or uncomfortable once in the hotel, but outside, yes. My stay was for one night both a flight arrival and departure with travel outside of Boston in-between. Boston is an expensive city, hotel-wise for sure, so this BWPlus is a great value.

Illinifan69, Central Illinois 04/10/2018

We stayed here for several nights. The hotel is clean and I felt housekeeping was very good in our room. The suite was spacious for the 2 of us. The bed was comfortable. You can hear quite a bit of street noise (and we were in the top floor). They do provide earplugs in the room. The bathroom could use some cosmetic repairs but the water was hot and pressure was good. Breakfast selection was what I've come to expect for this level of hotel; overall mediocre and baked goods were dry. The room was crowded on Sunday morning but not crowded during the week. The evening cookies were pretty good and a nice treat. We had a rental car for one night and we were able to park for free in their lot about 1/2 block away. The negative of this hotel is its location. This is not the best part of Boston for walking. If you use ride services then you will probably be fine. We walk a lot and walked many times from the Orange T station on Massachusetts Ave as well as the Red T Andrew station (each almost 1 mile away). While I never felt unsafe I had the benefit of traveling with my husband and we stayed very aware of our surroundings. Massachusetts Avenue is also very well lit which I appreciated. The hotel does offer a shuttle to a couple other T stations (1 Orange and 1 Red) which is another option to get where you want, but it requires meeting the shuttle scheduled trips. If this hotel were in a different location I would definitely stay here again.

Hotel is nice and clean. The staff is great, and the rooms are amazing. Breakfast was good too (good choice of hot and cold items). The hotel offers a shuttle to/from popular metro stations.

RichardHughes205, North Wales, United Kingdom 02/10/2018

Booked this hotel for a one night stay, whilst visiting Cape Cod. Did so in a hurry and failed to read the reviews! Unlike some people, we paid a lot for our night $200 and as soon as we arrived it was obvious that this was not a nice area. Down and outs everywhere and people openly injecting behind to hotel and opposite. The hotel left ear plugs in the room - clearly it wasn't for the road noise! We were woken several times in the night as arguments took place between groups below us. I have never been so relieved to see my car - still in one piece next morning. When I went to get it I felt I had walked into a zombie movie! Large groups staggering down the road! Just made me feel unsafe, and as an ex cop there's not many places that have done that to me, The hotel itself was fine - clean and well presented. Staff were helpful and we booked into the room really early which was ideal. The shuttle bus took us directly into the city and picked us up later in the evening, drivers were great and flexible.

We found the room to be comfortable, but would not recommend for light sleepers (although ear plugs are provided). The breakfast was great and the courteous and helpful staff get 5 stars.

Steve P, Monroe Twp, NJ 29/09/2018

The area is rife with drug addicts. They line up along the building at night. The sneak into the lobby to take drinks and terrorize guests that are there. The hotel is also in a place where heavy trucks rumble by all night. A really bad location.

FrontDesk_GM, General Manager at Best Western Plus Boston Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Steve, Guest safety is a major priority for us, hence our nightly security guard and 24/7 lobby cameras, and it's unfortunate you didn't feel entirely comfortable with us. We encourage our guests to seek a member of our team if they ever feel unsafe, so we can properly address their concerns. Thank you for conveying your thoughts, and we wish you the best in your travels ahead.

"Decent hotel in a poor location"

Robin S, Ormstown, Canada 26/09/2018

The hotel, rooms, and staff were all acceptable. First the positives. The hotel provides frequent free shuttle service to and from the subway system. The rooms were clean and well appointed. The staff were friendly and helpful. On the negative side, there were two issues that would not allow me to recommend this hotel. First, there were a large number of homeless people/addicts in the immediate vicinity of the hotel. We were never threatened by these people but we were advised not to walk the streets after dark. The second problem was the outside noise. The hotel is located adjacent to some medical facilities and sirens could often be heard throughout the night. The hotel provided earplugs to dampen the sound but they were inadequate. If you are looking for a quiet nights sleep in a safe neighbourhood look elsewhere.

Our room was large and had what we'd asked for, 2 queen beds, and a comfortable couch too. We were delighted with the accommodations. It is located reasonably close to the airport too. Very nice. The neighborhood was not comfortable, though. The people around the motel appear to be making deals and acting very strange.

Dear Petteri, Thank you so much for choosing Best Western Plus Boston Hotel and sharing your kind remarks about your accommodations.

Never would I stay here again. Now I know why the price was reasonable. Their were people on the hotel doorstep and all around the building shooting up Heroin right in front of us. They were also lined up across the street day and night. We did not feel safe at all. Every time we left the building people were begging for money and smokes. This activity went on around the clock from the time we checked in until we checked out he next morning.

ShellyRD, Emporia, Kansas 12/09/2018

Our large suite was absolutely lovely! And this was probably our best night's sleep during our 12 day holiday. The bed was super comfortable. All of this for an amazing price in “downtown” Boston. The reason why is location location. As we looked out our window, we could see drugs - dealing and partaking. Walking from the parking lot in the rain, we found ourselves face-fo-face with the group. However, no one messed with us or our car. The police were present quite a bit too. All that said, we would stay here again at that rate.

The hotel was placed in one of the worst areas imaginable. The staff is doing an incredible job. The people handling the food are great, especially Ludenka (Probably spelled her name wrong). The staff was top notch. We were lost getting back to the shuttle stop and they came and picked us up where we were. I cannot say enough good things about the staff and I'm sorry they are in that location. Bryan

"Very Poor Customer Service"

AnneB9778, Los Angeles, California 07/09/2018

I booked this hotel at the end of August. I had previously read the reviews about the sketchy neighborhood, but was not too concerned (it is still sketchy). Once we got to the property my family did become concerned with the area we would be staying in so I followed the directions in the confirmation email to cancel the reservation online. There was a $215 cancellation fee for canceling the day of the reservation, which we were fine with and fully understood. The cancellation confirmation email said I would be charged $215.10, but my card was charged $248. I did not received any email or explanation as to why the charge was that much. I gave it a week to see if they would refund the extra $30 - maybe it was an error since we cancelled the same day? Nothing was refunded, so I emailed them at the address it gives if I have any questions. That was a week after the reservation was canceled. I did not receive any email back, so two days later I called and was told my reservation "was never cancelled" and the receptionist does not know why. If the reservation was never cancelled, wouldn't they have charged the FULL amount of $1000+ to my card? It did not make much sense to me. The receptionist told me there was not a manager in and to call back the next day. I called back the next day at 2pm, where I was told he was busy and to leave a message, so I left a message with a call back number. Two days later and still no response, so I called again today and was told none of the managers are in and won't be in until 1pm, that I can call back and send them another email. After multiple attempts over a week to contact them to figure out why I was overcharged I have not been helped at all, only told that the managers are never there, but that I have to speak with one of them to get a refund? This was very poor customer service that needs to be addressed.

Steve H, Torrance, California 06/09/2018

Upon locating the place, we were scared seeing all the druggies on the block, and even wondered if our vehicle would still be okay in the detached parking lot. (Thankfully, they have a security guard to watch the cars.) Once inside, the hotel was fine, as was the service. But, neither of us would stay there again.

"DRUG USEAGE AND HOMELESS"

User 05/09/2018

Lots of homeless and drug users in area, unsafe to go out side. Found needles and human waste by our car!!!! One of the window panes didn't go to our window, it was smaller and didn't fit. Gaps which you could look through allowed bugs to come in, plus noise from street and the homeless/drug users.

The staff of the hotel was terrific!

Unfortunately, the area is not the greatest. I hope that gets better for the sake off the Hotel. The area does not reflect how nice the hotel is.

"Nice stay but odd neighbourhood"

Scott M, Toronto, Canada 28/08/2018

The hotel was fine. It was fairly modern but it's located in a troubled neighbourhood. Parking is adjacent to the hotel. We left our motorcycles there for 2 days without issue (but likely because there was nothing to break into and steal). It is security patrolled at night for added security. A 20-min walk or quick taxi to standard restaurants (Applebee's, etc.) and other shopping. The hostess in the breakfast lounge was very accommodating. She runs a tight ship, keeps the place clean and efficient! Staff were helpful and courteous. The room had a few issues. The TV in the sitting room didn't work at all, the toilet handle was broken (so I fixed it), and then there is the noise. As previously stated, it's in a bit of a dodgy neighbourhood that is more industrial than commercial. Lot's of large dump trumps / waste trucks filling up at the gas station next door. A lot of banging, sirens, etc.. We slept fine (for the most as I get up early) but if you like to sleep in, perhaps consider another location.

"Good Hotel, good Breakfast, Not good parking and outside area"

User 27/08/2018

Hotel staff were great and very supportive of our requests. We stayed two days for a Family reunion and booked three rooms. The inside of the hotel and rooms were clean and very comfortable. The downside and negative for this hotel is the Parking locations and availability. There are quite a number of homeless and few people on drugs and other people loitering around the back side of the hotel and across the street from the hotel. The hotel does have Security camera's and Security guard at the front entrance and we felt safe. We're from NY so weren't bothered by the people but people not used to seeing homeless people or people on drugs might be uncomfortable parking their car at this location. The hotel does have adequate general parking but most of the parking it is not directly on the same premises. The Hotel had only two Handicap parking spaces near the front of the hotel and the other parking spots were in the Back of the hotel, across the street and at a shared Sunoco Gas Station parkinglot. We had no issues with the parking our car other than seeing Homeless and people on drugs, they didn't bother anyone. We did notice that at night around 9PM each night the police did clear everyone out of the areas, but they returned bright and early in the AM. The Daily Breakfast was very good and the staff there was very helpful each day. They offered make your own Waffles, scrambled eggs, sausage, Oatmeal, cold cereal, fresh fruit, as well as Juices, Coffee and Tea. The was kept very clean and replenished with the various options. We saw all type of Business and family types of people going in and out of the hotel each day. We would stay at this location again!

I am a Best Western Rewards member. My experience in the hotel was EXCELLENT. I was quite pleased with my hotel room. The reason my review is a little lower is because the neighborhood is not great. Some may have a problem with that, but I think the hotel makes up for it by providing convenient shuttle service to red line (Andrew) and orange line (Back Bay) stations. You can also request special drop offs to selected locations. The drivers, especially Carlos and Pablo, are the best friendly faces for the hotel. So, if you don't have a car, you can get around the Boston metropolitan area without a hassle. Also, the food grill across the street is actually pretty good if you need a quick bite and don't want to go out.

4 adults had daytime water activity as well as evening celebration plans and needed a place to make the transition and sleep before travelling to home the next morning. We didn't need the higher priced hotel in the best location. We found this affordable place and were very pleased. Yes, I did read the reviews about the unsavory neighborhood, but was sure that we were smart enough to be completely safe. We even walked at twilight to a Washington Street restaurant, Stellas. We did uber back to the hotel of course. I would recommend this place to friends and family.

"OK inside, bad outside"

travelbag12345, New York 14/08/2018

The hotel is in a kind of desolate industrial/hospital area, so there's not much in terms of restaurants and places to go within walking distance. There are a lot of homeless drug addicts who congregate in the area behind the hotel where the parking is, some openly shooting up in the middle of the day. There are needles scattered around the sidewalk, so don't wear open toes shoes. The room itself was comfortable inside, but it was on the ground floor with the window on the main driveway of the hotel, so not very pleasant. Unless you're visiting someone in a nearby hospital, I would not recommend staying here.

Stay away. Right in the middle of a drug zone. Walking dead. Smoking crack in the parking lot and all around the hotel. Drug deals at night. Spaced out people staggering in front of hotel, as we were dropped off at night. Walking from the parking lot to hotel is like uncomfortable at best. located in an industrial park next to a methadone clinic. You can't walk to any restaurants. Don't stay here. AC in room was not working properly. Breakfast mediocre. Toaster didn't work and the staff new it. No security at front entrance.Book any where else but here.

I stay at Best Western hotels when I travel as I find they are good value. This Best Western Plus was as nice of a BW hotel that I have stayed at. Great clean room. Comfortable bed and spotless bath. Lobby and breakfast area very nice and inviting. But once you walk out the door to the street it is a different world of drug addics and a large population of homeless surrounding the hotel all day and night. The car park is totally open without visible security. If this hotel was in a better area I would give it 5 Stars.

This hotel is clean and a historic building. It is up to date. I booked this hotel because it had FREE parking. They offer a shuttle service on a schedule.

The hotel itself is very nice. The rooms were bright and seemed recently renovated. Very comfortable bed! Good lighting. Hotel location is kind of sketchy but was somewhat central so super easy to Uber almost everywhere (downtown and Fenway) in about 10 minutes for about $10. I walked to the grocery store in about five minutes. There's a liquor mart in the grocery store. Target just past that. Gas station right beside the hotel with light snacks and drinks.

dawn732, Hertford, United Kingdom 06/08/2018

We stayed for 2 nights. Given the wrong room at first, another guest let himself into the room we were given whilst my daughter was undressing. We then had to gather all our luggage and move to another room, no apology. On returning home and checking my bank statement, we had then been charged $150. When I eventually got through to Best Western not the hotel direct as they never responded to my e mails. The reason given was that someone had smoked in the room? No evidence given just that there was a smell of smoke. The company wound not intervene as it was at the discretion of the hotel manager.

"Seedy area. Do not recommwnd"

User 05/08/2018

Our carpet next to our bed had a suspicious orange stain and the hotel provides earplugs and Sleepytime tea for the loud sirens that keep you up all night, but failed to place the Sleepytime tea in our hotel room. Our view is of trash and the homeless people crowding the area. For $220+ a night STAY AWAY! This area does not feel safe or cozy at all. They do provide security, but only one person right next to the front entrance. I assume this primarily is to keep the drugged up people from entering the building. The parking area is well lit so you can clearly read the signs stating they're not responsible for any theft. Though the room is decent once you make it in, I do not recommend this hotel, especially for the hefty price when you can find a much safer and cleaner hotel for the same price, if not less.

"Worst location in Boston"

Melanie D, San Francisco, California 29/07/2018

We were visiting our daughter in July, high tourist season. Hotel rates were very high throughout the city. We decided to stay at a Best Western because the price was under $300 per night—one of the few hotels we found in this price range. We understood that it wasn't going to be a luxury hotel. The room was a typical room in this category—no frills, but very clean. However, we do not know Boston and came to discover that the hotel is in the worst part of town—known as Methadone Mile due to all of the drug dealers/users and meth clinics in the area. Drug-related activity was happening right outside the door of the hotel, and groups of users/sellers were gathered across the street—we could see and hear the activity throughout the night. We found Boston to be an incredibly expensive hotel city when we went. But we wouldn't stay here again due to the location.

"Nice updated hotel, parking and neighborhood not so great"

ginaj1900, Rockford, Illinois 24/07/2018

Hotel clean and updated. Decor modern. Suite was nice and bed reasonably comfortable. Neighborhood industrial and a little sketchy. Unsecured parking down the street or behind the property without direct access to hotel or grounds. Many warning signs in lobby and in parking areas about locking cars and keeping windows up and hotel not responsible for damages.

Accommodations, staff, and Best Western facility was very nice. The surrounding area was extremely frightening and uncomfortable. It is a very tough area with fighting and drugs close by. I woke at 6:30 am to screaming, yelling and physical fighting. I was scared during daylight hours to be outside. Again, you can't move the building but the location would prevent me from staying here again.

"Exceeded Expectations"

EazyEDob, Walnut Creek, California 23/07/2018

Having booked the room late afternoon of that day and arriving at the hotel at 10pm, I thought I was going to get the worst room. To my surprise I ended up in a wonderful room on the 7th floor (top floor). The room actually was 2 rooms and a bathroom. The rooms had been renovated since my last stay here about a year ago. Everything was modern and clean and with all the amenities one could ask for. The check in was quick, the hotel stay went great, the rooms was quiet and to boot there was free parking, and all this for less than $90. Wonderful!! The only downfall was the neighborhood which was not so great, but there were a lot of police present and it was safe.

david o, Rochester, New York 17/07/2018

This hotel usually offers clean and updated rooms at a good price. It is very convenient to Fenway Park and has a shuttle. Area around hotel is main drawback, with next-door drug rehab clinic. It simply is unsettling to see so many drug-dependent folks in close proximity as you come and go from the hotel. The hotel also appears to offer little to no security or monitoring of parking around hotel.

The service and accommodations are fantastic; however, the neighborhood isn't what we anticipated. It's nice to catch a quick taxi/Uber/Lyft ride to downtown, the Wharf, etc. If you have a vehicle, the parking is free which is nice, but you may not want to leave valuables in it.

when i booked the hotel i was assured by the call center in arizona that it was in a good part of town and "very nice" once i got there there was police activity all over the place with 25-30 homeless people and many hookers around it. the whole area around the hotel had fences and barbed/razor wire around everything. i felt very unsafe and i tried to get my money back from the hotel but the did not refund me. i felt very unsafe and my rental car would have been at risk of being broke into. I will never stay or use best western again. i will do everything i can to spread how bad the customer service is with this company. Best western officially made my trip horrible and regrettable.

"Good room in a not great part of town"

MVBarra, Ridgewood, New York 10/07/2018

The hotel room itself was very nice. Extremely comfortable beds, a mini fridge, and plenty of space. I was in town for a Red Sox game, and while I would not want to walk from there to Fenway and back, an Uber ride was only about $11. Parking at the hotel is a bit scattered and not the best. The area of town is not great, and there are a lot of homeless around, but I didn't spend much time outside there so it didn't really effect me. All in all, I'd stay here for a night or two again if I was on a budget, but I'd try and look elsewhere first.

Great hotel in Boston Nice hotel in Boston. There is a transfer. There is a shopping center nearby. 10 minutes by car to the city center. Not far from Logan airport. Free Breakfast and very tasty.

"Stay away!"

User 08/07/2018

Location is horrible (not the hotels fault I know, but still horrible) with us watching people shoot up drugs right across the street as we looked out the window. We also witnessed at least one drug deal out there as well, and when arriving back to the hotel after a concert we attended, we came back to a bunch of homeless people sleeping on the ground next door to the hotel. Again, I understand that the homeless must sleep somewhere but it really took away from the overall feeling of a safe location with all that we saw while there. There were at least 30+ people hanging around high as kites throughout our stay, with WAY more late night...probably closer to 100. Not an exaggeration either. Very sketchy! I was very worried about my car being broken into as well considering how many people were out there loitering (thankfully it wasn't, and we had a handicapped parking pass so we were able to stay next to hotel/on site rather than off site like most of the other guests). The other issue was one of our bath towels had a huge dark stain on it which was gross and the towel was folded in a way that it wasn't noticeable until you go to use it, and the desk seemed to have dried syrup or something from a previous guests breakfast maybe? Also the “full” breakfast options are pretty limited and I wasn't impressed with the breakfast at all. Over all, even though the hotel was decent as far as set up and the room itself, we wouldn't stay here again!

EnidBetty, Largo, Florida 06/07/2018

The hotel was ideal. The service was excellent. The cleanliness was A+. The breakfast offered a wonderful selection. However, the location of this hotel negates all of it's good . You cannot walk outside the hotel. It cost us a fortune on Ubers to get to and from this location. People who wanted to smoke couldn't stand outside for fear they would be bothered by the riffraff congregating across the street.

I think this hotel may be seriously damaging the best western brand. I stayed here due to brand reputation and expecting the same quality and safe location as every other BW Unfortunately this was very much a feeling of being a star in your zombie film. While I appreciate the world is not all bows and ribbons i didn't expect to charged $140 for the pleasure. Considering the Sheraton in the centre of town was offering room for $150 I have attached a picture of the after party at 1 point there were 50 people gathered at this spot “getting wrecked” as one person told me.

This was a very clean hotel with pleasant, accomodating staff. However, the neighborhood is not good. My car was vandalized the last night we were there. The manager was sweet and offered a discount.

________________________________________ You must be informed the surrounding area is totally UNSAFE. Roxbury is one of the MOST unfortunate areas in almost all of Boston. I am very disturbed that the photo's and the comments are favorable for this place as getting from your car to the two parking lots that are away from the building is the most frightful experience I've ever had. There are 6 parking spots close to the building and always taken. I feared for my life every night getting into the hotel and this was also during the day. There is a methadone clinic near-by as well as 2 hospitals and the streets were littered with drug addicts, dealers, prostitutes and the like. I witnessed a woman who was having serious withdrawal symptoms in the parking lot one car away from mine. The police had come to help her but it was a horrifying scene to say the least. The place also said the rate would be one price and then added an extra $300 plus dollars at the end and this was done in a sneaky, unjust way where the woman behind the counter kept saying 'you signed the paper upon arrival' and I did, but at the end when the itemized list came out they had added ALL these extra 'fees' and would not negotiate a refund of any kind. I did NOT appreciate their being sneaky and unwilling to adjust the price, really bad scam to say the least. I cannot support people who do this to other hard-working people who are there on business or visiting people at the hospitals.

"Nice room, scary neighborhood"

waldentenn, Signal Mountain, Tennessee 20/06/2018

This is really a tale of two rating criteria: room quality and setting. The rooms here are very nice; I had a suite with all the amenities, clean and functional. Breakfast is good, the fitness center is small but useful and the service is way above average. Sounds like a great place, right? Not if you look outside. The immediate area seems to be the place of choice for vagrants in Boston--they are everywhere lurking around (not in the hotel, which has no visible sign of security). Parking is in the back of a gas station lot, which caused low level anxiety the entire time I was at the hotel. In short, this place is located on the fringe of a dicey neighborhood leavened by heavy industrial establishments. It is something of a food desert, except for a nearby McDonalds. So, if you have a high tolerance for urban dystopia you will enjoy your time at this hotel. Otherwise, steer clear. It's a shame because this would warrant a four or even five star rating in a different environment.

"Double booked room and terrible service"

saraharto, Washington DC, District of Columbia 10/06/2018

I would have put a zero out of five, but that was not possible. I was put in a frightening and potentially dangerous situation, and have only met with rudeness and dismissal from the staff of both this hotel and corporate Best Western since then. A man walked into my room a few hours after I had checked in, because the front desk had double booked us into this room. Despite owning to their mistake (a trainee was left alone to check me in), they did offered no recourse and only apologized or offered a new room after I went to the desk and demanded an explanation. I asked for the manager to call me and he/she never did (this happened a week ago on Sunday, June 3). I checked out immediately and have not heard from the hotel or from corporate Best Western despite lodging a complaint and, again, asking multiple times that the manager call.

barry t, Birmingham, Alabama 27/05/2018

Even though the room was nice and the staff very professional, your like a prisoner in a cell since you could never roam the streets because of the homeless and drug people around the building. Plus when the hotel provides free earplugs to their guest, it cannot be an enjoyable stay. That is what you get when you do not read trip advisor before a friend books a room. First let me say that the rooms were large and VERY clean plus the staff was very concern about internal security. But with loads of people in the parking lot waiting for the methadone clinic to provide them with drugs, the location of the hotel is not a safe environment. Add the hotel is just down from a large hospital that has ambulances arriving with sirens all hours of the day, you can see where the free ear plugs are provided. This hotel is just not in a quiet or safe location. The reason for our trip was to take in a few games at Fenway Park. We were told that they provided a shuttle to the games. However, this proved false and only took you to a location so you could take another form of transportation to Fenway. And with the view outside the hotel, the hotel shuttle leaving me in an unknown location seemed like an appalling situation. Look, the hotel was clean and well kept but you want to at least feel somewhat safe when you pay the large fee they demand for a room. This was not how we felt at this hotel. Do yourself a favor- spend the extra money and stay somewhere that is safe and you do not need ear plugs.

There are DOZENS of homeless and drug addicts right out front and across the street! There is no parking within the hotel property; you have to park on the side of the hotel across the street “AT YOUR OWN RISK” (there was a sign). No place to drive up to check in and unload your luggage; no bell hops, so you have to go inside and get your own cart and load and unload your luggage. Not good at all. There are many other hotels at comparable prices away from this environment with better surroundings and service.

Although the suite was great, the staff wonderful, and the breakfast plentiful.... the surrounding area was the flaw. If you need to be near the hospital, than its excellent. BUT, the constant ambulance sirens and police cars all night was difficult to sleep. Surrounding areas seemed to be struggling with the economy so walking around was not an option. They have a great shuttle to take you to the nearby train but we chose to do the $12 uber on the return from the wharf area to get door to door service, that was a wise choice !

Let's start by the bad. The noise at night was terrible. There was construction in front of our room all night long. We had trouble sleeping for the two nights we stayed there.

NorJerseyDad, North Jersey 17/05/2018

This hotel is not downtown so if that is what you're looking for, move along. That being said, I did walk to the hotel from the Haynes convention center one night - good exercise. The rooms were clean. My room was ground floor and had lovely prison bars on the windows. That was reassuring. The outside noise at night was pretty bad. I think some truck unloads or loads something around 3AM - maybe a dumpster? I also had some issues when I discovered mid-stay that the polite but inept clerk double-billed me. The manager was very sincere and apologetic, corrected the issue, and found a way to placate me.

"Noisy hotel - no sleep"

Nuschi_on_tour, Zurich, Switzerland 16/05/2018

Stayed 2 nights in top floor. Pro: + Friendly staff (especially at breakfast) + Big, clean and quite modern rooms + Breakfast is good + Shuttle Service to subway station every 45 minutes + Free parking lot Con: - Noisy Noisy Noisy The hotel is close a medical center / hopsital and you have aroud the cloud extreme noise from the ambulance / helicopters (siren, horn, etc.). The insulation / windows are very bad/thin. Beside of that there is big junction with a lot of traffic and trucks in front of the hotel. Additionally the service room or whatever this is create a permanent loud humming noise (I told reception but there was nothing that can be done). That means overall a hotel were you are not able to sleep (and yes we had ear plugs) is useless and does not fullfill the main function. - Next subway station is 20 minute walk - The area in general is a bit dodgy and some people might feel not safe - The price (240$/night) is much too high under this circumstances. So it should be 1 point but as there are some pro's I give 2 points which I think is more than generous. Would I come again? Of course not and I highly recommend not to chose this hotel. I am really disappointed from Best Western as I made good experiences in the past. You should really terminate your franchise contract here to protect your brand.

The hotel is conveniently located near 2 train stations. There is a shuttle to take you to the stations but the time can be a little better. However, they are very accommodating. the rooms are all suites- clean. The breakfast is very satisfactory- with a nice variety. Also, accommodating. The staff at the front desk has a lot of patience and will go out of their way to help out and give information. Thee are no additional charges that some hotels are now charging- ridiculous! I recommend it.

This hotel itself is classy from the receptionist through the beautiful appointed rooms. The room was clean and quiet and the beds were very comfortable. We had a mini fridge,a couch in the room and it was spacious. Outside the hotel entrance is a little dark and shady at nights and there were some people were just hanging around on the corner. They serve a hot coffee around the clock in the lobby and had a free breakfast that we weren't able to take advantage of. We ate at The New Yorker Pizza and Grill across the street and It was delicious! Stays open fairly late too. Besides being a little pricey, that was my only drawback, but, we would stay at this hotel again. Most comparable hotels I looked at in the area were in the same price range. Receptionist was sweet, professional and helpful in booking a cab for our early am flight. The hotels van service runs to airport only and starts at 7:00 am. We weren't able to use it.

"Decent Place to Stay / Friendly Staff / Questionable Neighborhoid"

JxB1000, Austin, Texas 16/04/2018

Hotel itself is fine and staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall, we found it to be a good value and conveniently located. Breakfast buffet was sufficient - they had a nice variety and changed up the hot items so there was something a bit different each day. As others have mentioned, surrounding area is a somewhat sketchy. I was thankful for the free parking but a bit concerned about our car. However we had no problems on that score. The building is old/historic and the window let in sound and are drafty. There is a lot of traffic noise, which didn't bother me. And the heavy drapes helped with the draft. Room was furnished nicely. A previous occupant spilled something pink on the carpet, leaving a big stain. Other than that, decor and cleanliness were fine. Here's the part I find sub-par and annoying. We booked a one-bedroom suite. I even called hotel directly to confirm two separate rooms, not a studio. Came with mini fridge but no microwave. There is one is lobby, so that wasn't too bad. However there is no TV in the living room. Really?? We expected downtime due to weather and thought to use our living room as a place to hang out - with guests - maybe watch some of the marathon. Also, while bedroom is a separate room with a door; the door and part of the wall are glass (like French doors). No curtain, just a giant wall of windows looking into the bedroom at the bed. So zero privacy and if one person wants to sleep in one room while another has lights on in other, no protection from the light. The configuration was disappointing. The building being old and neighborhood are not easily fixed. It is what it is. But adding curtains to give privacy to the bedroom and having a TV in the living room are something management should address.

Clean property, very nice staff and the shuttle was great! Shuttle drivers were polite, kind, and an absolute pleasure. Parking was available, but not ideal in that area as it was either out back or off site. Breakfast was good too, great service and variety of food in buffet. On the outskirts of city center, but the shuttle made a huge difference. Thank you!!

Close to a bus stop and a McDonald's and McDonalds. I've read reviews complaining about the loud traffic outside, but I can't say it bothered me and I thought it was neat that there were earplugs on the night stand for guest use, just in case. I've also read other reviews complaint about the hotel being in a sketchy area, but I never had a problem or felt unsafe. I used the bus to get around mostly, but used a Lyft to get to and from the train station, although, if memory serves me, they do have a shuttle that can take you to the Amtrak station. The staff was friendly, helpful, and very informative at check in and were able to help me with directions and questions. I'm not sure when I'll be in Boston next, but I'd stay here again.

Deginet provided the best customer service I've received in my 33 years. Her as well as every other staff member I came into contact with we're extremely warm and welcoming. My wife and I felt right at home. Our whole experience was wonderful. I can't say enough about this place. I doubt we'll ever have as great of an experience as we had here for such a reasonable price.

Michael F, Philadelphia, United States 12/04/2018

I stayed one night on a personal trip. Staff was friendly and courteous. My room was nice with separate living/bedroom space which was different to most rooms in this price range. Bed was comfy and bathroom was spacious and clean. It was nice to have a refrigerator in the room as well. Wi Fi signal was very good. While the hotel was very good, I wasn't sure about the surrounding area! I am not from the Boston area so I cannot be a good judge for this. Hotel does provide shuttle service to the popular areas of Boston which was nice.

Stayed here while attending a convention at the BCEC. It was an easy drive between the two. Parking here is awkward. Walking through a gas station parking lot to your car with all of your suitcases is weird, but free parking is hard to come by in the city. Room was ok. It was clean, but carpet stains and a missing outlet cover showed signs of wear. Breakfast was good, standard fare.

azdodgerfan, Chandler, Arizona 26/03/2018

This hotel is located in an area frequented by drug users and other sketchy characters! It is at the edge of an industrial area and across the street, especially at night, there are a lot of sketchy characters and I am sure, lots of drugs. For the hotel itself, it is not that far from most tourist spots in Boston. It is five stories tall and all rooms are supplied with ear plugs because it can be quite noisy. The rooms are nice and well kept for the most part. We had one with two queen beds and a sofa bed. The tub/shower and toilet are in a separate room. They serve breakfast every morning and it is pretty good. Eggs, sausage, breads, fruit and waffles as well as juices and hot drinks. It is well stocked and the folks taking care of it are very nice. The staff is also very nice and responsive. They have a complimentary shuttle to two different transit stations including the East Bay station, which is where Amtrak comes into town. We took a train from NYC and were picked up at the station. Very convenient. Not a bad property if you are into going for walks after dark.

Absolutely horrific. Could not figure out parking on arrival, homeless people everywhere either selling or doing drugs, my husband was approached by a dealer to sell him rock, all night loud talking by the dumpster outside our 6th Floor window where there were again drugs being exchanged and consumed, vomit outside by front door from where they feed the homeless in the morning. Just overall a horrible experience....

User 01/03/2018

Let's start with outside the hotel, there are what appears to be addicts in my opinion all around the hotel. There is a dumpster across the street which seems to be the hot spot for all these said individuals. When you enter the hotel the staff is friendly and nice, check in was a breeze. When we get to the room, the bathroom tub looked like it hasn't been washed since last used, there was hair in the sink. The carpets looked dirty. The covers smelled. I had to keep saying to myself one night and then we leave. I am from New York and a lot of the hotels have shelters in the hotels in certain areas of the city. I asked the front desk if this hotel had a shelter in it. She responded no, but I have a gut feeling that was a lie. Some of the individuals I saw at the dumpsters were coming back and forth to the hotel. The last straw for me was when the toilet clogged and over flowed. I called the front desk, they send someone with a plunger to fix toilet. I asked when can it be cleaned, they said not til 9am in morning. I have my children with me, are you telling me bathroom is out of commission til 9am. I packed all our stuff and left. Never again.

Hs1223, Boston, Massachusetts 20/02/2018

My husband and I were checked in by a less than friendly representative. When we arrived in our room, we began to settle in only to find the restroom had not been cleaned. There was urine, hair and feces on the toilet seat and some kind of off color stains brownish on the wallpaper. I immediately made my concerns known to the front desk and was moved to another room by another very helpful employee, while the first representative who checked us in made snide comments under her breath. Both floors reeked of marijuana. We even had the smell coming in our AC vents during both nights. I didn't get a good night sleep either night I stayed here. Bring your own cleaning products, air freshener and maybe security. It was not a pleasant or safe walk from the parking area. Never staying here again!

Although a bit noisy from outside traffic, the hotel was a great choice for us. We were there for almost a week while going back and forth to a Boston hospital. Access to the hospital was via free shuttle and there is free parking. At any one time, we had anywhere from 2 to 3 people in our room at any one night. The staff was always friendly, outgoing, helpful. and concerned about our medical issue.

"Location Goid and Bad"

Mary S, Liverpool, New York 19/01/2018

A friend and I spent the night after visiting a patient at Boston Children's Hospital. The location was convenient to the hospital, but not located in a good section of the city. The free parking was a plus, but homeless people approached our car at the corner. We watched drug deals going down across the street. The hotel itself was pretty good. The beds were comfortable, the breakfast buffet was delicious, and the exercise room was nice. However, we could feel the cold air coming through the closed window.

FrontDesk_GM, General Manager at Best Western Plus Boston Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Mary, Your recent feedback about your stay with us is appreciated. We're glad our proximity to Boston Children's Hospital was convenient and we send our best wishes to the patient you visited there. However, we're truly sorry to hear about the issues you experienced in our surrounding area. We hope the security measures we have in place made you feel more comfortable. Our maintenance team will also check your windows out for any drafts. With that said, we're happy you otherwise enjoyed our comfortable accommodations and helpful amenities. Your input is valued and we hope to make your next visit even better.

"Reeks of smell"

User 16/01/2018

I encourage you to consider your safety and the amount of sleep you will need. I spent one sleepless night in this hotel. The room reeked of smoke and there was so much noise that it was impossible to sleep. The hotel manager was beyond rude and has horrible customer service. My alarm clock was broken and when reported, I was given an additional broken alarm clock. I asked for a courtesy wake up call since my alarm clock didn't work and still didn't receive that.

FrontDesk_GM, General Manager at Best Western Plus Boston Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Autumm, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay. It is always our goal to provide our guests with clean, well-appointed accommodations to accompany a great night's sleep and we are saddened that this was not what you received. Our housekeeping has been notified to investigate the smell that you witnessed in your room and to check that alarm clocks are working properly. We further apologize for the level of service you encountered. This is uncharacteristic of our team and we will review your feedback with them so that it does not happen again. We do have security during the night hours ad video cameras on the premise for the safety of our guests and are sorry if you still felt uneasy about the surrounding area. Again, we appreciate your feedback and hope that you will give us the opportunity to deliver the experience that you deserve.

MMG73, CT 12/01/2018

Best Western has overall made nice upgrades to their hotel, but this hotel had a funky smell as soon as you walk in, and my daughter & I immediately had an allergic reaction to the air quality in the room and had to use our inhaler. With that being said the lady at the front desk was extremely kind and allowed us to cancel our reservation for the night with no fees and we went somewhere else. Also for me who is not familiar with Boston this location wasnt the safest feeling.

FrontDesk_GM, General Manager at Best Western Plus Boston Hotel, responded to this review
We are glad to hear that our team was attentive to your needs. It is disheartening to hear that you were not happy with the air quality in your room and our location. We will use your constructive feedback to improve upon our accommodations. We wish you happy and safe travels.

User 12/01/2018

There was a group of people, possibly homeless, hanging around the entrance. The receptionist was very tactful and handled the situation very professionally. I actually asked if we should be concerned about our safety as I had no idea what the the circumstances were prior to our arrival. We had our vehicle broken into on a previous trip to NJ., so we were concerned about parking. My sister was having surgery at a local hospital. It was important to be close to her and have stayed at your hotel chain in the past. Very happy with our stay.

FrontDesk_GM, General Manager at Best Western Plus Boston Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for taking a moment to share your review! We are happy to know that you had a very pleasant experience and we wish you and your sister the very best. It is unfortunate that you felt some discomfort upon arrival and we are glad that we could demonstrate our prompt, professional expertise in handling the situation. Should your travels bring you back to the area, we would love to host you again!

ted h, Augusta, Maine 10/01/2018

Staff is great, room was clean and comfortable, breakfast is good with the service staff very attentive to the customer needs. Two drawbacks; first is the area has a large number of sad and homeless characters that are around the hotel and second is the lack of a secured parking area. We would return but both are a definite concern. Enrique, the shuttle driver, went above and beyond to pick up my wife and her close friend during the blizzard last week at Brigham & Women's in his own four wheel drive vehicle - now that is great customer service!!!!

FrontDesk_GM, General Manager at Best Western Plus Boston Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Ted, Thank you for taking the time out of your day to share your review. It was a real pleasure to have you with us and make the personal connections that define a great stay. Your comments pertaining to Enrique's dedication is a perfect example of the service mentality of our staff. We appreciate your concerns as well and will consider them as we strive to make positive changes every day. Unfortunately, there are no easy answers, but we can work our hardest to make sure that our guests feel safe and secure and our community is strengthened. We look forward to serving you again on your return to Boston.

littlemike55, San Francisco 10/01/2018

Pros: Great staff. Went above and beyond to help. From early check in to lending a snow scraper tool for my rental car. Homemade cookies everyday at 5:30pm with coffee and tea in the lobby all day. Breakfast had a good variety, although the hot foods could be better. Security guard allowed me to make a quick sandwich a few minutes prior to the 6am opening for my early flight. Cons: Quite a few undesirables hanging around the outside of the building and making a lot of noise throughout the night, even when the temperature was below freezing.

FrontDesk_GM, General Manager at Best Western Plus Boston Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your stay and for your valuable feedback. We are particularly thrilled to know that our friendly and helpful service had such an impact on your experience. We know that the little things can make a big difference. It is, however, unfortunate to hear that you did not feel completely comfortable in our neighborhood.

Should you return to the area, choose the Best Western Plus Boston Hotel for another visit.

"Good value"

fscholar, Irvine, California 08/01/2018

We stayed three nights here. The room was nicer and bigger than we expected and was almost a suite. Breakfast was quite nice and the dining room was large. Wifi was strong. We liked coffee (and other drinks, at times cookies) available for 24 hours at the lobby. A microwave in the lobby was also useful. The only negative is the location. We did not see anything dangerous during our stay, perhaps because we were in the middle of extreme cold. It took us about 10-15 minutes to walk from Andrew Stn (red line) and 10 minutes to a silver line stop at Washington St & Mass Ave. The shuttle service to Back Bay and Andrew Stn was quite useful, although its frequency was somewhat erratic. Overall, I think the hotel offers a very good value and would definitely go back.

FrontDesk_GM, General Manager at Best Western Plus Boston Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for sharing how much you enjoyed your stay in one of our spacious rooms. We're so glad our tasty breakfast options provided you with an excellent start to the day and that our complimentary beverages and snacks in the lobby added to your comfort. It's also nice to know that you had strong access to the WiFi throughout your visit. However, we're sorry you felt the shuttle could have been more consistent and will keep this in mind moving forward. We'd be proud to host you again the next time you're in the city.

Excellent decor. All amenities were in great shape. Staff was professional and friendly. Parking was not so great but it is complimentary and considering hotel being so close to downtown it is still a big plus. Breakfast was another high-point of our experience. Put together, it was high-star treatment at a reasonable price. Highly recommended.

Not the greatest area of Boston, but accessible to all major roads. Hotel itself is clean and extremely well run. All staff very pleasant and professional. All amenities were as promised with no problems or glitches. Saved a bunch of money to spend on everything else we wanted to do. For our purposes this was a perfect place to stay.

Had to stay over night to catch next day's flight. Hotel was easily reached from the Airport by SL1 (free) and then by SL4 and a final short walk. Back to the airport by free shuttle to Red Line station, then again by SL1 from South Station. Friendly service and good breakfast. No complaints whatsoever.

Choose this last minute (several hours before checking in as a matter of fact). I was glad I did. It was convenient to the places we went. Sadly the area is not so nice. A bunch of addicts and bums all around. I didn't feel unsafe but can see people not choosing this place due to that. It really is a great place to stay.

"Most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept in!"

Any J, Okinawa, Japan 25/12/2017

Hearing protection is provided because of the outside noise which is counteracted by the most comfortable bed I'd ever slept on. Just wish I didn't wake up numerous times during the night. Staff was very accommodating: I checked in past midnight and was allowed to check out at 1300. Made it to the complimentary breakfast and enjoyed the waffles, coffee and croissant, however the fruit salad was fermented/spoiled. Overall great experience though. ??

If you want a good night sleep DO NOT STAY HERE!!!! BIG LOUD trucks driving by beeping the horn ALL night long. Was staying there due to an early hospital visit for my daughter.

As this was our first time visiting Boston, we didn't know what to expect. But we were pleased our hotel was considerably close to our train station. It was a pleasure to get into the warmth of our hotel seeing it was so cold outside. The front desk clerk, Maureen, who greeted us once inside, was extremely pleasant. She handed us the welcome package with the greatest smile. We felt right at home immediately.

"Worst night sleep!!!!!"

User 20/12/2017

Although the room was clean, it was impossible to sleep due to the BIG trucks driving by all night and blowing their horns. My daughter had an early appointment at the hospital and thought staying in a hotel close to the hospital would be best since traffic is sometime a 2 hour commute in. I was very wrong!!! I have been up all night. This is the worst experience I've even had and it's going to make for a very long day at the hospital. The person at the desk ask what my room preference was when I checked in, I did mention we where there over night because my daughter had an early appointment at the hospital and we needed a good night sleep. VERY EXHAUSTED MOM HERE! I have pictures of all the trucks lined up outside the window.

The hotel is clean, the staff is helpful and friendly and the breakfast is terrific. It's in a fairly industrial and sketchy area, but we were never bothered by the many street people in the area. The shuttle drivers are awesome, going over and above what was necessary. Would certainly stay again if ever in Boston.

This hotel was very comfortable, the service was exceptional. The quality of our rooms was amazing. The only draw back is if you wish to get to the activities in the downtown area you cant walk. You would need to drive or get a cab. Otherwise the price for the experience was awesome. Would book it again.

It was my first time in Boston. The staff was very helpful and very friendly. They were answering all my questions when I needed it. It's a noisy place because of the proximity of the hospital and a big road but they provide ear plugs. I have no problem sleeping through the noise so that did not bother me. I did not take advantage of the shuttles to the nearest subway stations because the schedule did not fit mine but I had no trouble reaching a subway station by bus or by foot. I wouldn't mind going back but I would understand some people not liking the place because of the proximity of the hospital.

BrittyBearBoston2, Boston, Massachusetts 06/12/2017

I stayed here with 3 of my girlfriends this past weekend. We did notice the homeless folks around, but the hotel definitely does the best they can and offer great amenities to make one have to limit how often they go outside or need to drive places. We were lucky to get a spot in their specific lot (I think their is only a handful of spots in that lot) but then they have overfill lots as well. You can't really complain about free parking in Boston anywho. The do have a very nice security guard around and their staff is top notch from the front desk to housekeeping to the shuttle driver to the breakfast attendant. The rooms are clean and spacious. The hotel is meticulous. Breakfast was very good with plenty of options. We decided to uber in and out of downtown rather than use the shuttle and T, but one morning we were coming up from breakfast about to call an uber from the lobby and the shuttle driver intercepted us. He asked where we were going and offered to take us as his next run wasn't for 45 minutes. We graciously accepted and got to enjoy the nice and spacious shuttle into downtown. Not to mention Enrique's company, he was so personable, engaging, and kind. He's a keeper! Now that's hospitality! Yes, the location is less than desired, but for the price you pay and the service you receive, I think this hotel is doing something right!

The rooms are in good shape but it was very noisy. There is a gas station next door and also a big avenue, so there is noise all the time. From truck baking up, and cars driving by. The hotel provided ear plugs for the noise.

The hotel and rooms are very nice but the location is not. Had to walk over homeless people lying on the sidewalk between the lobby and hotel parking lot 100 feet away. Across the street is a large homeless hang out. They do leave ear plugs on your nightstand to help with the sirens/noises at night. The hotel and rooms are clean, just in a poor neighborhood.

Tomas G, Sunnyvale 26/11/2017

The rooms are better than expected. Very contemporary, clean and updated. Internet is very fast. The only complaint we have are some homeless people that are around the area. It was just a safety concern. That did not really bother us much since we have a shuttle to go downtown. However during our pick up time they were late for 45 mins. We called 30min before pickup and 10 min after pickup just to make sure they and us will be there. If we have known they will be that late, we could have taken Uber. 45 min in the cold with wind chill and with a pregnant wife was not fun.

Benny207, Los Angeles, California 20/11/2017

Every room in this hotel is noisy -- the front side has a lot of street and helicopter noise, the back side overlooks a 24-hr gas station and a construction equipment lot where they begin at 6am. This, added to the previously mentioned presence of methadone patients from the clinic across the street make this hotel a "No Go" for us. Try the Hampton Inn & Suites one block away -- it looks much better. It's an easy walk from this area to a lot of good restaurants.

"too many junkies"

Kevin K, buffalo, United States 19/11/2017

nice hotel but the property is infested with junkies and homeless people which made me feel very unsafe. The hotel needs to do more to keep these people off of their property to ensure guest confidence and safety. I understand the hotel is in an industrial location and not all things can be perfect, but the drug addicts shooting heroin all around the property was very disconcerting.

Dear Kevin, Thank you for coming to us with your concerns. We place a priority on the safety of our guests and are truly sorry to hear that you didn't feel secure here, despite the presence of a night security guard.

User 18/11/2017

The hotel and its service were great. There were many complimentary perks and services. The area around the hotel is not the best, but there is not much the hotel can do about that, other than they do provide complimentary shuttle service to the subways.

Ray B, Glasgow, United Kingdom 13/11/2017

Stayed here fire 2 nights in October. Had read lots of reviews on here talking about the surrounding areas and they were all very accurate about the location on an area an uber driver told us is called 'Methadone Mile'. Inside the hotel is lovely and there's great breakfast options. The rooms were very spacious and came with two double beds. Thankfully the hotel offers a shuttle straight into BackBay and let's you explore the city.

Dear Ray, While our location wasn't to your liking, we are so pleased to hear you found our interior to be lovely, with spacious rooms and a wide variety of items served at breakfast. It's also great to know that our reliable shuttle service was a useful resource for exploring our diverse city. Thank you for choosing the Best Western Plus Boston Hotel and we look forward to serving you again soon!

491ndeys, New York City, New York 13/11/2017

The hotel location is the only disadvantage I have experience, industrial area plus homeless shelter in the neighborhood, I was really scared when I was coming back from my car and saw a bunch of homeless people scouting around the entrance to the hotel. Other than location everything else was great.

I had a great stay at the Best Western Plus Boston Hotel and would definitely stay again if in the area. Was minutes away from the Seaport Expo Center where I was attending the Ski & Snowboard Expo. Easy to find easy to get to. Friendly welcome from the front desk staff. Cookies in the lobby! Room was fabulous. I was fortunate to be on the top floor. Bed was extremely comfortable. There was a note about potential noise in the area but I did not experience any noise issues (maybe being on top floor???). I visited the Dorchester Brewing Company about a mile down the road and highly recommend it if you are into craft beers. Shuttle driver offered assistance but it was easy to get to and park. Got a better nights sleep than at home. I did not think this place included a free breakfast or at best expected continental but there was a full free breakfast with tons of options in the morning. I thought the OJ was particularly fresh and delicious. Front Desk checked on my satisfaction at check out. So yes I saw homeless people in the area. I did not see any of them doing anything other than trying to stay warm on a bitterly chilly night. It would take a rather privileged life to focus on how their situation was an inconvenience to ME while I was enjoying such a warm and wonderful suite.

"Decent hotel room in a terrible area"

deborahlG5801FN, Boston, United States 12/11/2017

This place is just not worth it. It's cheaper than other places in the city, but it is surrounded by pan handlers. At night, there is so much noise from the homeless population outside as well as police sirens. The first night I was there, there was police activity for 3-4 hours in the middle of the night! Also some of the staff are extremely friendly but there were 2 that were absolutely horrible. I have never been met with such terrible customer service in my life, especially because I'm generally shy and non-confrontational. The breakfast staff was great, and the rooms are clean, but the whole experience was terrible.

a drug zone and industrial park. very noisy and dangerous location. interior is great and staff is exceptionally good. unfortunately, their service does not outweigh the noise and danger of the site. not worth a stay at any cost, ESPECIALLY if this entails a family and/or children.

Every member of the staff of this Hotel were amazing, from the front desk, shuttle drivers and the Breakfast Manager, Yudelkq, the Breakfast Manger greeted us every morning and engaged in conversation.

Shlee230, Hacienda Heights, California 04/11/2017

The room is very specious, two big beds, sitting area, sink is outside of bathroom, kind of nice, safe is located way up in the closet, difficult to reach. Breakfast is moderate, the hot food looks like supplied by outside contractors, and just heated in the microwave oven. People working in this hotel are all very nice from front desk to breakfast helpers. Outside the hotel, not too many choices to eat. MacDonald is only across the street, the other one is a pizza place, we only stepped inside to take a look, not too exciting. The neighborhood doesn't look too good, we didn't feel safe to walk around, we took Lyft to and from Museum of Fine Art which is wonderful!

wetnorthwest, mayberry, Washington 02/11/2017

Stayed a couple nights while in Boston. The hotel itself is very nice. Room was great, breakfast was great, customer service was great. The only drawback is you're near a very busy hospital. A VERY busy hospital. The hotel tries it's best and provides earplugs, but wow around 5 am each morning, a ton of noise. That said that was about the only thing bad about the place. Would I stay there again? Yes, I would. Noise and all.

"Great hotel all round (pun intended!) and lovely staff!"

CouchSurfer4, East Anglia, United Kingdom 02/11/2017

This is a great hotel. Although the location is not very central for Boston sightseeing and perhaps the area is a little on the rough side, the standard of accommodation and the warm, welcoming staff more than made up for it! We stayed 4 nights. Every part of the hotel was very clean and well-kept. Our room for 3 people had a private bathroom and was very spacious. It was also well-equipped and had a mini-fridge. Upon arrival, the staff were very helpful and friendly and did their best to accommodate us, even though the staff member serving us was clearly new and a bit unfamiliar with processes. I was particularly impressed with the manner and attention of the young lady looking after things at breakfast and also the very nice lady who dealt with us upon check out. We had an issue with our bill being charged to the wrong card and she sorted this out very efficiently. The hotel provides the great service of a shuttle bus to two main stations. It runs quite regularly throughout the day/evening. We used it every day and most trips our driver was a very friendly and helpful young guy from Puerto Rico. Along the way he gave some great insight into the city! The breakfast was varied and vast, setting us up perfectly each morning. We loved the waffle maker. In conclusion, this is a great hotel and I would definitely stay here again.

kshambaugh2017, Berkeley Springs, West Virginia 31/10/2017

This is a great hotel! Very clean. Nice staff. We stayed on the 6th floor and had a nice view of the surrounding area. Despite all of the negative reviews, it really is not as bad as people make it out to be. Yes, there were homeless people gathered around across the street around the Mobil gas station, but in a big city, you see this everywhere you go. Yes, you could hear lots of traffic, and you could hear sirens, but you're in a big city!! That's to be expected. I would stay here again.

The hotel itself was nice and the staff were very kind and helpful. However, the hotel is in a terrible area near methadone clinics and has many homeless and addicts wondering about. I felt unsafe to go outside unless I was calling an Uber.

I stayed at the Best Western Plus Boston Hotel from 11th to 14th October 2017. The service was pretty good. People at Front Desk were very friendly, specially Maureen. If it weren't for her, I couldn't have solved a problem with the carrier of a purchase I had made over the Internet. She was really very smart and helpful. Very clean rooms, comfortable beds, free parking. A little noisy but it didn't prevent me from sleeping. Conveniently located. The neighborhood is surrounded by drug addicts and homeless people but they won't disturb you. I would stay there again.

The Best Western was a wonderful Hotel it was Modern, easy to get to and the staff were extraordinary. Parking was another story. The only place to park was behind the hotel which was next to a gas station. We were kind of concerned about leaving the car overnight and leaving for the airport at 4 in the morning. There is security on staff who walked us to get the car. That was a big Plus it made me feel safer. Inside of the room was spectacular , brand new, and modern. Our room was on the 4th floor. It really didn't have much of a view and was close to the street. It had a lot of Street noise. The room did offer earplugs.

Staff are very helpful and caring. The room was very clean and nicely furnished. The bed was really comfortable. The neighborhood over the years has had waxing and waning troubles but staff are consciousness and always worked to ensure my safety. Free parking is very rare in Boston and is a huge plus for families on a budget. The Continental breakfast is excellent with very attentive staff. They also offer the travel ban which is really convenient. I will continue to stay at this great hotel for business and personal travel. The room rates are very competitive.

We enjoyed our stay the staff was so great!!! Very friendly and helpful. The reason for the low mark is the location. We didn't know that the area was a drug spot for crack beads and homeless that's not the fault of the hotel but we didn't feel safe when walking out the front door .

Christine Y, Shoreline, Washington 16/10/2017

This hotel is near BU Medical Center, in South Boston. It is off a main street and since it is near a medical center, it is very noisy, often with sirens. We found it hard to sleep at times. But, there were other nice things about this hotel: the rooms were spacious and clean, free bottled water each day, free cookies and flavored water/drinks, newspaper and breakfast buffet. It is 7 1/2 blocks to nearest T station

DWOtruth, Hartford, Connecticut 10/10/2017

The hotel is amazingly great for being so close to the action in Boston with free parking and free breakfast. And the one qualifier is the neighborhood which is part of the "Methadone Mile". The good news is that while there are a substantial number of down and outers wandering in the area of the hotel they seem to be people who are trying to make their lives better and not once did they say anything to me and when I drove to parking they cleared the intersection and waved me on. I walked from Fenway Park in the dark down Mass Ave and passed single women and couples most of the way so I felt safe. The room was spacious, well equipped and first class. This is a bargain and if you can get past the neighbors appearance it's a deal.

We had a nice stay at this hotel for my 25th birthday weekend. The hotel itself is beautiful and our room was clean and modern. The front desk staff were friendly and very accommodating. My only negative comment would be that the location of this hotel is kind of rough. Other than that, it is close to Faneuil Hall and other great bars and places to eat in the area. Definitely recommend if you're looking to go away to the city for a night or two, just be cautious of the shady characters in the parking lot and lock your doors.

Just stayed here from 10/3-10/6/2017 and loved it. First trip to Boston and we drove, so getting here was easy and right off the ramp. Included free parking. Yes, it's located in somewhat of a shady area. You be alert like any city, someone will ask you for some spare change or a cigarette, politely say no. Never felt like I would be mugged or anything like that. The staff was as friendly as can be and very helpful. They went above and beyond, so kudos to the entire staff. The rooms are large and very clean, no musty smells, clean carpets, bathrooms, corridors and even outside, always cleaning. The free continental breakfast has something for everyone and they keep it stocked and fresh. I don't like staying right in the hub of everything, but this place was central to everything we wanted to do and we used Uber to get everywhere, generally $13-$14 each trip, but was prompt every time. Security is always around the entrance, so I always felt safe. Will absolutely stay here again on my next trip.

Highest review to the hotel, room, and staff. Hotel Cleanliness is top rated. True professional staff--very helpful. Good Rates. The location/area is convenient for the hospital/medical center (you can see it from the front door) BUT the location/neighborhoods are not a good place to be walking around especially in the evening. Lot's of drug use (hardcore) and lot of people gathered (loitering).

Patrick S, Granbury, Texas 05/10/2017

I have traveled the world and have stayed in Iraq and India with armed guards at the door. That is what I feel this place needs, in other words, visible security. The parking lot for the hotel was filled with 10-15 “homeless” type people. You have to sign a waiver saying that the hotel is not responsible for theft. After signing it was apparent why they make you sign it. There was no visible security, no secured access (code for example). The Hampton inn a block away had visible security on bike and a parking garage. I was a BEst Western fan but I now have serious concern about their commitment to customer safety.

The hotel was great... Rooms were spacious and well lit. Comfortable beds and linens. Quiet and dark. The public areas were clean, complimentary juice and coffee 24/7, warm cookies at 5, free parking and shuttle. Breakfast buffet was open for 4 hours, had lots of variety and was kept well stocked.. Staff was friendly and helpful. Bad part was the neighborhood. Meth clinic opened across the street and the sidewalks are full of homeless and helpless people. We never felt unsafe, but caution is needed. And so is public transportation. You won't be walking any where from this hotel.

The hotel is very nice. The staff are all very nice and helpful. The rooms were clean are fairly well kept. The shuttles are regular and well maintained. My only negative for the hotel is the area. There are many homeless all around the area. This obviously is not the hotel's fault or responsibility. There are also many addicts and panahndlers who have no problem stopping vehicles for money. We have used the hotel in the past with no problems, but the area has gotten worse over the years.

231bobbim, Bangor, United States 19/09/2017

This hotel is located in the hub of 2 methadone clinics and a homeless shelter. Addicts gather in the back parking lot at night and shoot up, smoke crack, urinate between cars. The sidewalk towards the entrance of the hotel was occupied by a number of homeless and addicts. The hotel checked us in to a room that was already occupied, although we were compensated, the "new" staff member was rude throughout our stay. The location was not safe.

"Nice hotel"

L S, Jakarta, Indonesia 16/09/2017

My first impression about the hotel is the location may not be suitable for having a good night sleep, since next to it are warehouses and a gas station. Surprisingly, the hotel offers nice service. The staff are friendly and attentive. The staff at the restaurant in particular provide speedy, neat, and friendly services. The breakfast offers some choices including healthy choices. The room is large with a separate bedroom and a living room. The amenities are complete. The bed is comfortable, and I had a nice sleep.

Ms Rosario , who was was in charge of the breakfast was the best. Truly professional. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. Front desk clerks were all very courteous and helpful. I'm sure you know that the neihborhood is a little sketchy.

"This place is nuts"

bcbcb2017, Boston, Massachusetts 12/09/2017

I'm surprised a hotel can operate based only on value with what I'm witnessing right now... The parking lots and side streets that surround the hotel are filled with drug users and sellers. Not hidden, not discreet, just in plain sight. I've been around the block, but the reality that is going on here is extremely unsafe and risky. The clean rooms and little free breakfast aren't worth your safety and peace of mind. If you have kids, DO NOT stay here. Prayers to the unfortunate.

While we understand there is a homeless problem, the parking lot needs to be better patrolled. Felt unsafe and car was tampered with. Had small child with us, so it was particularly scary. Rest of stay was OK

"Not a safe area."

Becca V, Bridgewater, Canada 06/09/2017

The hotel inside was nice, and we had a cheap rate. Unfortunately we drove and you park around the corner. It is not a safe area and after booking found warnings online. A lot of people hanging out outside around the hotel. Could hear yelling and sirens in the night.

"Beautiful Hotel - Scarey Neighbourhood"

Rontastic, Brighton 06/09/2017

Stupidly didn't read the reviews before arrival, hotel is immaculate, great little suites, very modern, very clean, fabulous continental breakfast, but as mentioned by previous reviewers very scary neighbourhood, as we arrived the amount of homeless/vagrants/prostitutes hanging around on every corner of the block was the biggest concentration I've seen outside of a shelter, we were not approached and our car was not touched but once we arrived we did not venture out, Dominos would not deliver to the hotel. I laughed at the ears plugs laid out in the room thinking they were a nice touch, unfortunately they are a necessity, the street people shouting and fighting outside in the evening followed by the trucks rumbling and beeping when backing up from about 6am made them very necessary. Not sure if the area will change, super lovely hotel just not a great area, in any other locations I would not hesitate to recommend.

"Not a good area"

zlcjf, Baltimore, Maryland 04/09/2017

It is a nice property, conveniently located. However it is not a good area you want to be. Shelter and homeless people nearby. Hotel is right off a busy street. No temporary parking while checking- you have to pull into a hidden street. The hotel inside is ok as most bw hotel I would give it a 4 star if not for the location.

We would definitely stay at this hotel again in the future. Everything was great..clean, comfy beds (and pull-out couch!), complimentary breakfast was the best ever!! Staff are very friendly and helpful. The "locals" that frequent the hospital on the corner are hanging around a bit, but we never had a single issue with any of them. Found it a tad bit pricey, but was worth it. Great location to everything we wanted to see...Fenway Park, Boston Harbour, BackBay area.

"Not in a good location"

kxz255, Atlanta, Georgia 30/08/2017

I have visited Boston more than 5 times and stayed all over Boston from downtown to Cambridge, airport to newbury street. This hotel is located in a totally different location than my previous visit. The neighborhood is not somewhere I would like to recommend. A lot of homeless wandering around and sleep right behind the hotel. And it is near Boston university medical center, you will hear siren quite often. Hotel provides ear plug for guest. I only see those on airplane. So if you looking for a quite and nice neighborhood. This hotel is not for you. Other than the location, the hotel is ok to stay.

"Terrible location "

2
P3552UNmichaelm, Mobile, Alabama 26/08/2017

The hotel itself is fine but the location is awful. The problem is the situation after dark. I did not feel safe at all outside of the hotel after dark. Apparently there is a homeless shelter nearby and they are all around the hotel. The outside noise is very bad during the night. Parking is in a dark lot behind the hotel. I did not feel safe at all walking from the lot to the hotel entrance. I also saw huge rats behind the hotel. I will never stay there again.

"Terrible area with uncaring staff"

1
tiffanyj805, Birmingham, Alabama 24/08/2017

Do not go here. The area is very bad and night staff do not keep a handle on the type of people hanging around the outside, it was obvious there were people under the influence of more than just beer, half to not clothed women, and homeless making beds in the lot. When I called the hotel, Charry, told me they are there every night and don't bother anyone or their property. She told me security can escort me in or I can park a few blocks away and walk over. I wanted to transfer my reservation and was told that wasn't an option. I tried to cancel and was charged anyway for not meeting the cancelation policy. Charry was not rude but was very unhelpful and uncaring, she made me feel as though my reservations were unwarranted and over reacted. No one followed up with my concerns from the site either. **The Double Tree on Mount Vernon was much cheaper and their night staff was AWESOME!! he was super helpful, kind, polite, and really cared about the customers. I arrived at 1am to the hotel. He checked me in quickly, provided me fresh bottled water and warm cookies. **

avicky, Jacksonville, Florida 23/08/2017

At first I had misgivings when I arrived but I was greated by one of the Desk clerks. I wish I took the time to get her name. She reassured me as she walked me into the hotel. My room was large, premium and comfortable. I loved my snuggly bed. Snickers loved looking out the window watching the people and traffic. They offered a shuttle to the red line. Breakfast on the 1st floor offered a lot of choices. The waffle station included strawberries whipped cream and chocolate. You won't regret staying here. As for the homeless, not happy to find them there but they never bothered me. Beautiful historic facility.

234randyj, Boston, Massachusetts 23/08/2017

Showing up for a very early morning check-in I witnessed The Walking Dead in their poorly placed poorly lit back lot parking lot, was approached by one man offering to sell me drugs, saw another man being held up by yet another man while he shot heroine into his arm. Had my shower interrupted by the front desk clerk pounding on my door telling me that I had already checked out when my check out time wasn't until 6 PM. After my shortened shower I had to go educate the front desk clerk on how to read the notes at the bottom of A reservation. Was promptly overcharged for my room and the manager refuses to return my calls. Not to mention the smell of urine that engulfs your nostrils as you exit the building.

"Not worth it"

Vanessa M, Montreal, Canada 23/08/2017

Hotel rooms themselves are fine. The breakfast is decent as well but it is located in sketchy area. Uber driver called it "Methadone Mile". Drug addicts use the parking lot to shoot up. Sirens can be heard non stop. Not worth the price I paid.

mariatD6067KU, boston, United States 22/08/2017

Don't bring children here unless you plan on educating them on drugs and prostitution. The parking is in several lots around the hotel and you have to walk by active people injecting needles into their arms and smoking marijuana and crack

"This is not your standard hotel"

4
User 17/08/2017

After reading the reviews about the hotel's location, I had some misgivings. I called the hotel direct and told them about my concerns. They said that "yes, there are homeless people in the neighborhood but the hotel is safe. Yes, your car will be safe. We hire a nighttime security guard to watch the parking lots and area." I weighed the pros (price, value, amenities, location, FREE parking - extremely unusual for Boston, free shuttle to the trains) and cons (location, reports of noise, homeless people) and decided it was worth it. We were extremely pleased with the hotel. First, the room was spacious, modern, well appointed and very clean. I slept like a baby every night. So did my husband. The supposed street noise, sirens, etc. that others reported... Never heard it. I will say that our room was on the south side of the building so the only noise that I heard from was from the heavy equipment rental company loading up construction equipment. But that was at 7-7:30 in the morning so it wasn't a big deal. We also had the a/c fan running the whole time so that may have covered some of the noise. Second, the staff was friendly and accommodating. We requested a late checkout on our last day and they said, "No problem!" The shuttle driver was great. Third, The breakfast buffet was a cut above your average hotel hot buffet. Eggs (hard boiled/scrambled/omelets- with salsa and cheese toppings, potatoes, bacon/sausage, breads, muffins, waffles (with strawberries and whipped cream!), yogurts with fruit/granola toppings, oatmeal, fresh cut fruit! (pineapple, melons). This was definitely not a crappy continental breakfast, this is a real buffet. Fourth - Yes, there are homeless people and drug addicts on the corner at the Mass Ave connector intersection. There were also people walking to/from their cars on their way to work at the hotel that is 1 block from the hotel. Not everyone you see on the street is homeless or a drug addict. You can't always tell by looking. The ones that did seem to be homeless left us alone. Completely. I felt safe going to/from our hotel and car. Fifth - The history of this particular building is very interesting. They call it the Round House but after reading the explanation/history of the building in the hotel information binder we learned that this building was built in 1852? It was a storage facility for gas used to fuel the city of Boston's gas lights. Boston was apparently one of the first cities in America to have gas night lights. In short, don't let the few negative reviews scare you off. The hotel was a great value, the location was convenient. At the end of our 5 night stay we agreed that the neighborhood kind of added to the experience. If I ever find myself in the Boston area again, I will stay here for sure.

"Great hotel in a BAD location"

User 16/08/2017

This hotel has pros and cons... Pros: Staff was very nice, polite and helpful. The room was updated and clean. Cons: BAD neighborhood. Parking is at your own risk, as there are people shooting up next to guest vehicles. Drug paraphernalia lined the edge of the parking lots. We felt very unsafe parking there and walking from the hotel to our car.

"Horrible Hotel Don't Stay"

rebeccan41, Essex, United States 16/08/2017

If you want hotel life this is not the place. Do not stay here. They should pay you to stay at this hotel. The staff is rude and definitely speaks to different races differently. The location is not safe for any children or adult going outside after dark. The rooms are loud and the service is not that great. I remind you DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL. IT IS NOT SAFE FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.

"on the edge"

4
User 16/08/2017

This hotel sits on the edge of some of Boston's not so friendly and very friendly environment. We could tell the neighborhood is just starting to change for the better at the hotels location so be careful if you care to go for a long walk. The hotel itself is very comfortable, clean, well kept up, nice spacious rooms, as well as an excellent free breakfast every morning with terrific service. Checking in is easy and swift as is checking out. There is a shuttle that will take you to various locations, with hot coffee and sometimes hot cookies and juices in the lobby. it would be nice if the rooms were a little more sound proof from the noise from the outside, but all in all I would stay here again.

"Unsafe- would NOT recommend"

k12345678g, Burlington, Vermont 15/08/2017

I arrived at the hotel with my 16 year old niece. Upon arriving to the parking lot, 4 people were in the "private" parking area shooting up. We ran from our car into the hotel. The inside of the hotel was clean, and seemed fine. However, once we went to go back to the car, we found two young women walking up and down the parking lot selling themselves. A car with an older man came over to pick up one of the women. As a young woman, I felt incredibly unsafe. When I spoke with the manager, he said that there was a security guard that was on staff from 11-8. Unfortunately, if this was what was happening at 2pm, I was not willing to stick around to see once it got dark. It was a horrible hassle trying to cancel the room, and I ended up in tears trying to get a refund, as I had booked through expedia. The hotel was unwilling to help me with this situation. This hotel should be responsible for advertising the neighborhood for which it exists, and if they are unwilling to do that, at least they should be monitoring their property 24/7. So disappointed....

User 08/08/2017

This hotel is on 'Methadone Mile'. Not saying it's terrible but it completely caught my friend and I off guard. We were warned by the cab driver from the airport ride in not to venture behind the hotel. Wow. We were pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness of the actual hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. No complaints about the room, comfortable beds and decent showers. It's actually not far from a little shopping center, walking distance to the target. But I wouldn't advise walking. I would say it was great but I was unprepared for the neighborhood. So just a heads up.

"Great Staff, Nice Rooms and Few Rude Guests"

afbrian2002, Tampa, Florida 06/08/2017

First and foremost, I don't know what the corporate policy is of developing it's employees, but you have a jewel of an employee in Yudelka. She appears to be an extremely motivated hard working employee. While her area of responsibility may seem less important to some, it can be difficult to manage with the flow of guests acting like hordes of locusts. She constantly assessed her area either directing employees or performing the work herself to replenish the items to keep customers happy. She was very nice when I asked questions and she moved around with a sense of importance and purpose without appearing to be rushing about or flustered. Yudelka should be groomed for other responsibilities as it is no doubt that she has untapped potential that education and mentoring could expose to a forward looking organization looking to further benefit from her. Sal is also a great manager. Upon our arrival we noticed the smell of marijuana on our floor. Sal quickly moved us to another floor. Unfortunately, the next night the smell of marijuana was evident yet again. His staff worked to Identify the culprits, but I am unsure they were able to find them. It isn't the staffs fault for rude guests, but the efforts they made to take care of us let us know they cared. I am sure the penalty for this infraction when guests do this isn't enough to prevent it. The ladies at the front desk were very friendly and accommodating when asked for another comforter or towels. Tirsit was super nice and helpful when asked questions about the area. The rooms were nice and clean enough but there was dirt and dust in the corners of the bathroom. The pull out bed was very comfortable. Overall this was a great stay and the employees the stars of the stay. One note about parking, there is at least one parking area I am aware of. It is uncovered parking around the corner from the hotel. I parked my motorcycle there and had no issues.

Window fell off during the night, completely came loose and fell next to the pull out when a member of my team was sleeping. Odor in the room, clogged sink, place surrounded by addicts, homeless man sleeping 15 ft from main entrance, dead rats next to the registration parking spot, sketchy edge of downtown next to a work yard that's active during the night. Need I go on? Staff was courteous and efficient and did what they could.

Stayed here for a last minute weekend trip, the hotel itself was very clean but unfortunately the location is not so good, very noisy streets, a hospital nearby and many homeless and or junkies hanging out across the street. It wasn't that bad yet I did not feel comfortable enough to walk around outside although the staff was very accommodating I have no complaints for the hotel itself.

The area around is not the best, but the hotel is good and well located. Free parking available and a good breakfast, with friendly staff. There is free shuttle service into areas of the city and service to the airport. Re-modeling is in progress, but all the guest room s are freshly done. There is a fitness area, and a pet friendly hotel. The suites have a mini-fridge. Unfortunately, not towel racks in the bathroom-an oversight.

IrishMelanie, Halifax, Canada 29/07/2017

We just stayed at this hotel for 3 nights while sightseeing in Boston. The room was lovely, large, and very clean. The staff were so helpful. The front desk was very friendly. The nice young lady who looked after the breakfast never stopped moving. As soon as I was done eating, she removed the dishes before I could throw them out myself. She definitely worked really hard, all the while smiling and helping the people find whatever they needed. Same goes to the gentlemen who ran the shuttle back and forth to the trains. They were great at giving advice on how to get where we wanted to go, and were always on time. We were definitely worried about the neighbourhood based on the reviews we read here, but because the shuttle service was so efficient, we never once felt uncomfortable in the area. We did see several homeless people, but mostly from a distance, and again, it was never an issue. This was a great hotel.

"Good Hotel, Terrible Area"

Rebecca C, Los Angeles 25/07/2017

The hotel, itself, is good. The rooms are clean and spacious. The service is good. The breakfast is great. However the hotel is in a TERRIBLE area of the city. There are derelicts in the surrounding area that openly engage in drug exchanges and excessive drinking. This means that there are people who urinate and defecate in the area around the hotel. There are no security cameras in the parking lot. This makes parking at night very uncomfortable. It also makes getting from the car to the hotel feel very, very sketchy.

"BEWARE OF THIS HOTEL!!!!!!!"

1
User 18/07/2017

Please BEWARE of this hotel!!!! My husband and I recently stayed here for 2 nights, I can't complain about the hotel itself as our room was nice. It's when you leave!!! We booked through booking.com and used our debit card to secure the room. On check out we asked if we could settle using our Fair Fx card (pre paid dollar card) the girl took our payment and gave us our receipt which I was happy with as it was the correct amount of €448 and stated that amount and my card details. A couple of days later I checked my statement and to my surprise what had been taken was €1643.17!! That's not all, they had also taken €448 from my husbands debit card AND also €448 from our credit card we used for them to hold when we checked in! As soon as I realised this I called the hotel and spoke to the girl that took the payment, she promised to arrange a refund but told me it would take 2 weeks!!!! This was devastating as this was money we had loaded on our card for our holiday and we were over €1600 short on spending money. I called the hotel a further 3 times and still got nowhere. Our holiday was ruined by this hotel and we had to cancel activities we had planned for our holiday! When we returned home there was still no refund. I sent an email to head office and received the refund on our Fair FX card I didn't even received and email apologising or to advise me this had been done!! I also received a refund on our debit card for £4 less!! I did NOT want to pay for this hotel using our credit card but they took it without our consent and we have also been charged £22 for a non sterling transaction fee! All in this hotel took over £2,000 spread across our 3 cards and I have have never even received an apology or an explanation OR our money back for the transactioN fees!!! SHOCKING SERVICE!!!!

"Great hotel, not the best location"

User 18/07/2017

The hotel itself is lovely. We stayed in a King suite and the room was great. The only downside to this hotel is the proximity to the hospital (lots of siren noises) and being very close to a rehab center (lots of patients hanging around outside into the night). You are only two blocks from some great restaurants though so if you don't plan to spend too much time in the hotel this would be a great deal.

"Nice hotel but bad location"

User 12/07/2017

The hotel was nice, clean and service was attentive. But the location was horrible. I did not feel safe walking around at night and even during the day was questionable. The shuttle service was good but overall I found the hotel location limited my enjoyment and experience in Boston.

cheezencrackers, Glen Ellyn, Illinois 12/07/2017

Beware: Boston @BestWestern Plus has many homeless on property. We couldn't even get from our car to the front door after being accosted by a disturbed man waving a large stick at us and cursing loudly as we exited our car. Two more men came toward us menacingly, and we quickly returned to the car. We tried calling the front desk, but they don't respond, it gets answered by a generic customer service rep in another state who says she'll try and call the GM and then call us back. . . So we wait in the car. As we sat in the car we saw and photographed personal belongs of homeless in various areas of the Best Western property where it appears they live. As we waited for CS to try and resolve our issue (the rep instructed us to stay in the car and/or leave the property for our safety) we observed and photographed another individual bathing himself in the Best Western parking lot (Attached photo shows him as he's taking his shorts off. We could not take other photos as other homeless approached the car yelling at us.). After he finished, another individual approached him and a drug deal ensued. The rep called us back and said the GM was gone and the front desk person could not help us. The phone rep again instructed us to leave the property for our safety but could not cancel our reservation and/or transfer the rez to another Best Western (the latter is what we had initially requested). She said canceling would be up to the GM of the hotel, who would not take our call that day or any subsequent attempts nor did they call us back as we've asked them to do. After leaving, we found other accommodations and spent quite a bit of of our vacation time trying to contact the GM to get a cancellation. The GM and Best Western has charged us a night stay — even after many attempts contacting corporate customer service, they say it's up to the GM. Meaning the parent company will not stand by you the customer/guest, even after their rep tells you to leave a dangerous situation on their property. I'm leaving this review because everyone should know how dangerous a place this is (there is a very large homeless shelter within a few feet of the hotel and many just live and/or hang out on the streets and on the Best Western property) and how short-sighted and unhelpful the GM and the corporation are. Be safe. Be smart. Do not stay here.

Price too high for industrial homeless drug user neighborhood, noisey street racing middle of the night. We only needed the room to sleep and were gone during the day. Our sleep was I interrupted and walking to and from parking past the homeless using drugs should not be done alone.

Edward G, Toronto, Canada 11/07/2017

Stayed at Best Western for 2 nights on the weekend. Location is ok. We didn't drive our car and used Uber which worked out perfect for us. The hotel is around 10-12 minutes drive to downtown. The room was spacious and clean, the breakfast wasn't so great:( Good choice for a few days in Boston.

This hotel has no protected parking in a bad part of town. Bums hang out around hotel. My son unfortunately witnessed two drug users shooting a needle in their arm. The floor we were going to be on had a strong odor of marijuana. The general manager was not accommodating. My kids were scared and was not offered a refund. Horrible, horrible experience.

lssdl68, Athens, Ohio 05/07/2017

This hotel is a great value for the money. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and the breakfast was fantastic. It is near a hospital so you do hear ambulances, but the hotel provided ear plugs you could use if you wanted to. We really weren't bothered by it though. The only downside is that the location was a bit far from the historic district. However, the hotel offered a shuttle which was very convenient. We would definitely stay here again.

Teri-Lynn K, Saint John, Canada 03/07/2017

When you first approach the hotel, it can be very intimidating due to the ppl hanging around in the area (there is a homeless shelter and meth clinic nearby) but we were never bothered by anyone and I acutally felt pretty safe. The lobby was not air conditioned but the rooms very cool. The beds were super comfy and the room very spacious (we had 4 girls in our party). There was mention of noise levels, the hotel provides complimentary ear plugs but I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary and I was near the window. Breakfast was fantastic

jen18pr, New jersey 02/07/2017

The hotel itself was very clean, modern, and fair price. However, outside of the hotel is a large number of drug addicts that are within footsteps of the hotel. It made it very dangerous to walk to the car and walk our dogs. They are there at all times of the day and night. You can also see many used syringes on the floor of the parking lot. Would not return because of that.

AAA SHOWED hotel in downtown. It is near downtown but what I observed in a high crime area. Saw 2 drug deal from 4th floor window in one evening. Near drug rehab building. Best Western provides ear plugs due to noise outside. I believe I heard gunshots near by. The maid did not replace coffee and toiletries. With either AAA or BW loyalty card rate discounted to $179. First night and $169 the 2nd night. They did provide shuttle service to subway. I do not recommend this hotel.

The only drawback to his hotel is it's location if you're sightseeing or doing business in Back Bay or Financial District. I didn't try their breakfast nor gym. Every part of the hotel I saw was very clean and tidy. Great staff!!! Free shuttle service to trains and hospitals great benefit.

The hotel is great. The exterior conditions are awful. Parking is a problem. Better/more access shuttle access to T and access airport would improve the accommodations. We had to walk thru a confusing maze to get toT. Staff should provide better walking directions. Ie exit, go left towards light. Cross and follow street to T.

"Great Hotel - comfy beds!"

PhilipT, Hollywod, Fl. 28/06/2017

What's interesting about this hotel is the history of the building! The beds are VERY COMFORTABLE and the breakfast was GREAT! Neighborhood isn't the best, but we didn't plan on hanging outside the hotel much. However, the location is convenient to downtown or the North End. We would stay here again!

"Friendly, convenient, neighborhood Hotel -Best Western Plus Boston"

4
User 22/06/2017

For those wanting a reasonably priced hotel that is friendly and convenient in a neighborhood setting, this is a good choice. A free shuttle provided by Best Western to/from Copley Square's South Station makes this hotel convenient to all of Boston. free parking is also provided around the building or across the street in a lot. Because the building is round, rooms are bigger than we expected and have an interesting layout having a separate BEDROOM from the living room. Being in a neighborhood, however, we'd suggest a higher floor room as street noise may be noticeable on occasion. Parking when arriving should be done just as you pull off the street near the front door. All in all, a good choice a few blocks from freeways with friendly timely service.

"Nice Inside"

5
Patti S, Omaha, United States 22/06/2017

This was a comfortable hotel. It doesn't look like much from the inside, but the inside is very nice. The room was spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was good. The location isn't the best unless you are going to Boston University Medical Center. There is nothing else around. The hotel does have a free shuttle service that will take you directly to the medical center or the nearest subway stop. The shuttle drivers were very nice.

Donna3205, San Clemente, California 21/06/2017

Look at a picture before you try to find the place. We could not find it at night. The sign was not lit. And it is a round building which said Roundhouse. Since we were looking for Best Western, we did not think that was it. (The words Best Western were on a part of the building that could not be seen with the curve of the building.) We called and asked for directions and they were not helpful. Bad part of town. We ended up staying elsewhere.

We saw this uniquely designed round hotel on our first trip to Boston, getting our daughter squared away with graduate housing at BU.

This best Western hotel has free parking,hot breakfast fitness center and is an easy walk or free shuttle to BU medical campus!

User 15/06/2017

The hotel itself was very good although the windows do NOT keep any road noise out, and we were on the 6th. Floor! The room was really quite nice. The staff were very courteous to us, and those working in the dining room were great. Far and away the biggest problem was the neighborhood. Not only did we witness a hooker walking back and forth, but NUMEROUS drug deals in the parking lot right across the street from the hotel. It made us nervous to even walk to our car in the nearby parking lot. Best Western NEEDS to put some sort of outside security in place not only for guests, but for staff. Unfortunately we would not return to this hotel.

863rosemariee, Long Island, United States 13/06/2017

My stay was a last minute. The neighborhood is not the best, the hotel is beautiful, and the staff are some of the best I've ever met at any hotel. The breakfast is served hot and fresh with a variety to chose from. We arrived late, so the in house driver took us to dinner and picked us up so we wouldn't have to drive after a long day at the airport. Price was perfect considering how expensive Boston is.

V39UHmelissal, West Milford, United States 05/06/2017

We had our room changed three times because the carpet was very stained and the TV was not working. In the last room, the air conditioner was not working and neither was the safe in the room. The area around the hotel was not the nicest and it was also a little loud. The hotel provides ear plugs to guests in the rooms.

Located within good distance from all of Boston's major landmarks and was a very short Uber trip. Room was clean and staff at check-in and check-out were fantastic. They allowed us to store our bags and car on-site while we finished sight seeing. Outside is a bit noisy and quite a few people wandering about, but there is a hospital nearby so I expected this.

"Strange visit - good room in sketchy neighborhood"

2
joe64331, Darmstadt, Germany 30/05/2017

I stayed at the Best Western Plus Boston for two nights on a business trip. This is a pretty strange and difficult review to write. On one hand: the hotel staff worked hard, provided clean and comfortable rooms, a good breakfast. The king-size bed was comfortable, the WiFi worked without problems, free drinking water and a coffee-maker were provided. The hotel honored my request for a high floor, everyone was very friendly. On the other hand: the hotel is located in an industrial area and it is almost comically noisy. From waste-management trucks starting at 3-4am, a construction business next door opening for business at 5-6am, to the all-night sirens of emergency vehicles rushing to the Boston Medical Center across the street - the noise-level was simply breath-taking and did not give my industrial-strength earplugs the slightest chance. Also, similar to another review, the first thing I saw when I parked my rental car at the hotel and opened the door was a used syringe in the gutter and I was solicited for cash or drugs 3-4 times on a 2-minute walk to the restaurant across the street. There is what appears to be a half-way house across the street and several homeless people were sleeping on the hotel grounds. The parking areas looked very sketchy - I consider myself very lucky that my car was not broken into. The hotel staff clearly is trying their best, the star rating tries to acknowledge their hard work, would have been worth 4 stars. But the location trumps everything, I cannot recommend this hotel.

"Great staff, amazing pizza close by"

RocklandKris, Rockland, Maine 25/05/2017

My stay was ridiculously over priced due to graduation weekend, however, I was very happy with my stay and would stay again. The location is quite far out of the city and almost in Roxbury. An average cost of an Uber to the Fenway area was approx $9.00 which I think is quite reasonable. There is a gas station next door, a McDonald's across the street and an AMAZING pizza/sandwich place (New Market Pizza) that delivers very close by. The breakfast was fantastic, especially the breakfast staff! The fitness room only has 4 pieces of equipment but when I got there at 5:45 AM there was availability. I believe there is a shuttle to the closest T stop, that we did not utilize. There is construction next door but it don't keep us awake, could have been the champagne though but they do provide ear plugs for the sensitive.

"Horrible night's sleep"

S2284JCleslied, Sandwich, United States 09/05/2017

This hotel had incredibly big, thick and hard pillows that were impossible to sleep on. We had to resort to sleeping on the little throw pillows. Was unable to take a bath because the stopper wasn't working. The blackout curtains were not sufficient and let light into the room. The traffic and the street sweeper kept us up in the middle of the night. Also, we waited for a long time for the eggs and sausage to come back out with a refill but they did not bring them out so we ended up having a continental breakfast and not a "full breakfast" that we were supposed to get. (We came down for breakfast during mid-breakfast and not at the end of breakfast so we did expect all food to be available.)

"Choose Carefully"

Bill H, Mebane, North Carolina, United States 07/05/2017

For a long weekend touristy visit to Boston, I was not interested in paying center-city hotel prices. My credit card was running hotel specials and the Best Western Plus was the most reasonably priced choice in Boston. Even throwing in the cost of an Uber ride to the historic district, we saved a lot of money. Before you decide to follow my lead, though, a couple of things to consider: First, this is the only hotel I've ever stayed at which provides earplugs to help you sleep through the noise. They say they're in an "industrial area" and to some extent they are, but most of the noise while we were there was due to car alarms and what sounded like drag racing a block or two away. We're sound sleepers and it really didn't affect us, but if you're a light sleeper, be careful. Second, there's no restaurant in the hotel or within walking distance. There is, however, a pizza/sandwich shop across the street which delivers, open 'til midnight, and serves a really good pizza and nice salads. It took care of our dinner issue after a late flight arrival. Complimentary breakfast was passable at best. The room was reasonably spacious, clean, well furnished and the bed was quite comfortable. Some drawbacks, certainly, but I've paid more to stay at worse hotels.

"A horrible experience "

1
User 06/05/2017

I stayed at the Best Western for work and had originally booked 3 nights. On arrival I asked to extend my stay to 4 nights and was told this was fine. On my fourth night I was in bed wearing ear plugs (which the hotel provides because it's in a very noisy area) and I woke up to find a big, male security guard in my room. It was pretty scary but he was apologetic and said I was meant to have checked out. I called reception and spoke to the woman there called Sharifa. She was incredibly rude and made me feel like a criminal, saying I should have checked out and that I was not authorised to stay. When I explained that I had booked an extra night she accused me of lying and told me I needed to call my travel company to extend my stay as she couldn't do it. I'm pretty tough but the experience of being woken up with a man in my room and then being accused of lying left me close to tears. Eventually I got a call back to say I could book an extra night if I came downstairs, which I did. I received a sheepish apology at the end of the transaction and that was it. Aside from this, the hotel is located in a run down, noisy area and there are lots of homeless people wandering around outside so it feels pretty unsafe. I never once had a 'hello' from anyone on reception when I came back every day, which is a first for an American hotel (or any hotel) for me. The staff seem miserable and rude, which I guess means there are bigger management issues going on. I would never stay here again and would particularly warn single women or people with families against staying.

"Be aware.."

philipgI8869KL, Boston, United States 02/05/2017

Be aware that there are no restaurant or bar facilities within a comfortable walk from the hotel. Although the listing states what facilities the hotel has. I expected to be able to find somewhere to eat and drink nearby. This wasn't the case and the area seemed very dangerous to be walking in at night (the first thing we saw on arrival was a used syringe on the ground just outside the hotel). The place is also VERY noisy. I had read other reports saying this but hoped it was an exaggeration - it wasn't. They really do provide earplugs!

The hotel is in a bad area. My truck & two other vehicles were broken into on Friday, April 28th. My truck had the back window smashed at 4:30 in the afternoon and some important items stolen; I 'd only been in the hotel about 1/2 hour. I found out that the hotel staff park right up against the building and in the handicapped spots and check on their cars frequently because they are aware of these problems. The hotel lies between a meth clinic and two halfway houses (so I was told by several people). It's in an industrial type area and very noisy too. They offer ear plugs. Cars pulled up outside blasting music at all hours of the night. The hotel is clean and the staff are friendly and seem caring but I would NEVER stay here again. Myself and one of the other victims checked out early because of this. The hotel didn't even offer a discount because of this awful experience and personally, that was the very least they could have done. Be warned. Don't stay here.

We were greeted with a smile and checked in promptly. Very nice looking hotel. In the process of remodeling. The room is very clean and comfortable. Very impressed. The pool was clean but a little cold. Elevator a bit slow but not a big deal.

I was already having a bad day the day I was checking into the best western. I got to the hotel a bit early and had some where to be within a hour. One of the front desk agent was being very rude and unhelpful. She had told me "there was no rooms available and I had to wait a hour". 10 mins went by than another front desk agent had began to help me, I believe her name was Suely. Suely had ran to a couple rooms to check if they're clean so I can be checked in.She had also help with me with a uber app, also got a free 20$ ride because of her too. She was super friendly and amazing ! I got to my destination on time :)

The hotel is in a very remote and even dicey neighborhood. The front desk staff is friendly and somewhat knowledgeable. Since parking in Boston is next to impossible the hotel does offer a shuttle service to the train/subway station but it doesn't run very often. The rooms are spacious and clean but with the traffic and sirens there is a lot of noise from outside. I suggest a room on the 7th floor and not facing the street below. The window in our room was held together with duct tape!! Yikes! The breakfast was typical for this chain but it was plentiful and the staff in the breakfast room was wonderful. One plus is a fabulous Cuban restaurant around the corner...Doña Habana. Great service and food. It's an ok hotel if you're looking for an inexpensive and average place to stay.

Stayed here for a convention March 31- April 5 and was very pleased with the choice. The room was clean and larger than we expected. The bed was comfortable and we had no problem sleeping. The breakfast was delicious. The fitness room, although small, was clean and well stocked. The hot chocolate in the lobby was a great bedtime snack. Enrique, the shuttle driver was friendly and very helpful. One of the breakfast workers (?Suzeca) is an extremely hard worker, she was everywhere at once making certain the fruit was filled, the waffle mix was pouring and the dirty dishes were removed from the tables quickly. Thank you to everyone!

I stayed at Best Western Plus Boston (The RoundHouse) Hotel with my wife from April 5 - April 10 and it was a pleasant experience. I can say it was one of my wisest decision with respect to my visit to Boston. Everything was just okay. The hotel was neat and well organized. The rooms are spacious enough with coffee maker handy. The staff were very friendly, especially those at the front desk. The complimentary breakfast made lots of sense. It was a complete buffet. The location of the hotel was excellent. I was able to connect with my friends and family easily. The car shuttle was very useful. Every morning, the car takes me to the venue of my meeting at Harvard Medical School with a promise to bring me back. Even in one occasion when I had to take a cab back to the hotel because the driver failed to turn up early enough to pick me up, the hotel refunded me the cost of the cab. I found this most amazing. There is free wifi everywhere. I will stay in this hotel again any time I visit Boston and I recommend it to anyone who needs a comfortable home away from home.

While this location is not ideal (hospital, sheriff's office/jail, a methadone clinic, and a corp yard all within a block) and the neighborhood itself isn't one I'd walk around in, especially after dark, the inside of the hotel is clean, updated, and comfortable. However, if you're a light sleeper, you may want to pass on this location even though they provide earplugs in the rooms, as there is a lot of street noise from all of the above listed businesses in the neighborhood. The hotel also provides a shuttle service to the red and orange T-lines on a regular schedule beginning early in the morning until 9:30pm. It's close enough to downtown Boston that Uber rides are also not outrageous (although Boston is almost always in "surge pricing" for Uber). Overall, it's quite nice INSIDE, and how much time do you really spend in the hotel room other than to sleep and shower??

jayneo939, Taunton, Massachusetts 18/04/2017

booked this hotel for marathon weekend back in September. as this year was also Easter weekend we ended up having trouble with my husband getting time off work and finding childcare. we tried to switch our 2 night stay from sat-sun to sun-mon but the man we spoke with was extremely rude and not helpful. he told us to call hotels.com and they continued to reassure us the hotel was the only way to change the reservation. we finally gave up after hours in the phone. in order not to lose out on our money I spent Saturday night in the hotel by myself and missed Easter with my family. when you pay 800$for a 2 night hotel stay I think you should be able to expect better service than this.

This hotel, although located at the edge of what can feel a little sketchy, was a great place for us to stay for the couple days we were in Boston visiting colleges. The staff was amazingly helpful and had lots of great restaurants and advice to share. We felt safe, and slept well. One morning it was a little noisy with traffic, but we really could not beat the price

This hotel is beautiful on the inside and well taken care of. The surrounding area around the hotel is in a bad section of town. If you can get past that hotel is comfortable, clean, the staff is super nice, and the breakfast was very good! The hospital sits near a hospital, so you hear the sirens. But it didn't seem to wake my family up during the night.

clawstech, Detroit, Michigan 11/04/2017

First off the room, bathroom, lobby and hotel overall was a clean comfortable place to stay. The value was good for Boston, compared to other hotels. The area the hotel is located in is industrial, complete with a bus/construction equipment yard next to the hotel. They start to work at 6AM. This makes it hard to sleep much after that. The breakfast bar could be improved as some of the hot items offered were tepid at best. As far as other choices it was great. The shuttle to the TStation was a plus, especially when it was raining.

The hotel was great, very nice place, very good staff and very helpful when asking questions about surrounding area. was in town to visit my grandson in boston childrens hospital and didn't find out until my second day there that I could of got a better rate if I told them I was visiting the hospital, when I asked the front desk I was told that I had to mention it when I made the reservation, I told her I didn't know until about 30 minutes ago and she said she was sorry there was nothing she could do. Overall the place was great. The area was bad at night but you really cant control that due the homeless shelter and methadone clinic on same street.

The room was excellent the neighborhood is very industrial. I guess in time this will be a renewed area of the city. Hotel is currently remodeling but does not interfere with guests. I was however very disappointed as I watched the maintenance man blow all of the sidewalk and gutter trash into and across the street instead of picking it up.

We had a large room with its own sitting area , with a sofa desk and mini frig. Bedrooms bed is nice and upgraded bath. Breakfast is in the basement. You do see homeless people on the way to hotel but not next to it. Its the city . Hotel has a lot of lights, we had no problem .

"Best? Let Alone"Worst"!"

Viajeir0, Paraná, Brasil 15/11/2016

I would simply say: "don't come!", but I think it's unfair. Why? This hotel is, in itself, a nice place (mainly their rooms, they are spacious and clean, though old). Bathrooms renovated. They serve a breakfast that's only ok (nothing special, I think, like others have said here). And... That's it! Location? Terrible! When you look in the map, it's not so, but it's a ugly side of the town (Boston have so many beatiful places!), relatively far from subway station (and dificult acess, as well). Lobby and corridors are depressively decorated, renovation in urgent need (so that the elevators had a strange rule: add 1 to the numbers in it in order to know your floor, except floor...!). Knowing that, you would say: "Well, if this hotel is so, probably the service will compensate...". No! They try their best to ignore you, even when we don't want it. But I left the worst to the final: Me and my wife had reserved a taxi in advance at the reception desk, knowing that they don't have a decent shuttle service (it's expensive, and with an schedule that didn't fit our early flight). After about half an hour, taxi came and instantly boarded other guests, with the complacency of the reception. When I questioned about, they "gently" asked for the shuttle driver to take us to the airport. This dishonest man (clearly concerted with others) delivered us to a bus point (which took another 20 minutes to go)! Of course we had to pay our 50 dollar bill to the driver (for his "kindness") plus the bus tariff, only to arrive at the airport like mad people just in time to our flight. Thanks for nothing, "Best" Western!

We made an online reservation here so we weren't completely sure about the location. It's near a hospital and a few methadone clinics so there are LOTS of homeless and addicts roaming around. BUT that just means you need to be careful. Besides that, the staff was wonderful and so accommodating. There were 4 of us and the first room they put us in had a King and one sofa bed and was way too cramped. We made a passing comment about it to the front desk and they immediately said we should not have been put in that kind of room and moved us to another room with 2 beds and a pullout sofa which was PERFECT! Good b-fast every morning, though would prefer more healthy offerings. Conveniently located - we were moving our son into college and could walk to his campus (Mass. Ave & Boylston area), plus just a few blocks away from shopping strip with Home Depot, Target and restaurants. Big plus that they are pet friendly b/c we brought our small dog, which they fawned over and kept happy with treats!

John Z, North Smithfield, United States 01/11/2016

This hotel has recently undergone remodeling and looks and feels absolutely comfortable to reside in. The rooms are suites with a very tasteful décor. Amenities are very adequate. The only drawback is that the TV is stationed so that it is in the bedroom. It would be better suited to facing the living room side of the suite or so that it could be reflected somehow on both sides. Great experience overall.

"Would be great if elsewhere!"

injustifiiable, Stamford, Connecticut 30/10/2016

Stayed here with 3 friends a few weeks ago. The room was pretty decently sized and roomy enough for four people - I think the couch folded out into a bed and the king size beds were roomy enough for two people each. The service around the place was pretty decent...from the front desk to the breakfast area. Everyone seemed pretty pleasant. Free parking is a BIG plus and something you rarely get at hotels in the city. The location is a bit of a mixed bag...while it's close to I-93 and all that, it's in a so-called "up and coming" "industrial district", a bit of a "no man's land" between the South End and Andrew Square. Do yourself a favor and look up "Methadone Mile" on YouTube...as that stretch of Mass. Ave is home to a hospital, several homeless shelters, and a couple methadone clinics. There WILL be opiate junkies roaming around the joint...they're not aggressive though. They'll usually go along their merry way if you reject their advances. If you're not used to such a neighborhood, this place probably isn't for you. The hotel does offer shuttles to both Back Bay (on the MBTA Orange Line) and Andrew (on the Red Line) stations, so it's certainly better to utilize those than to walk around there after dark. If I could take this place and plop it on say Tremont or Washington Streets in the South End, it'd be perfect. That said, it'd probably also be $100+ plus more a night than it was so...*shrugs*.

"Sheer disappointment"

2
ShAmir41, New York City, New York 27/10/2016

With much regret I have to say that our stay in the BW plus Boston was a disappointment for several reasons, only the most crucial can be presented here. In short, we like staying in BW hotels because almost always we get what we expect to and what we pay for, but this hotel does not stand up to the standards of BW. One thing cannot be changed, which is its location. Maybe this location is good for people attending conferences in one of the close by medical centers, especially if their stay in the hotel is paid by the conference organizers, but the hotel location is very unappealing to the tourist. It is not only what is revealed to the tourist eyes when looking around, which is a commercial (especially storage) and semi industrialized environment. The hotel surroundings are very noisy. If you like to wake up at 4am every morning to the noise of trucks, the hotel is for you. Otherwise go somewhere else. The management is aware of this problem and it provides pairs of earplugs even before you request them. The hotel is being renovated. Our room has been renovated already. The room is shiny and clean and looks very nice. The problem is that the renovation has left the room without a place to hang wet towels to dry and without curtains on the inner door. But a graver problem is the room layout. I have not seen its layout before the renovation, but currently a normal sized room is divided into three parts to make it a suite: an en suite bedroom and a “living” room. The bedroom is already crammed with a king size bed, two night tables and a TV set. There is no room for additional furniture. In the living room there are a sofa, a desk and chair and a small fridge. Therefore you are forced to watch TV lying in bed. If you like watching TV seating you cannot do it. If you are a couple and you stay in Boston 4-5 days but you travel for a month and you have 3 suitcases, you have to crawl on the floor to open two of them. Another problem that makes me very sad is that the hotel is run mostly by young staff that is inexperienced and not sufficiently trained. This certainly does not refer to all members of the staff, but many of them should get more training before they are sent to answer problems the guests face and questions they may have. To mention only a sample: our room was not serviced properly for two days before we were forced to leave the maid a message, we did not have internet in the room for a whole day. Not only that the problem was not solved but we were told when complaining “You should have”. I really do not want to cause harm to any of them because they are kind and friendly and they are trying to do their best, sometimes too arduously as when they grab our breakfast dishes when we still seat even without asking if we are done. Guidance and more training will solve such cases. In addition, for every problem we had to get down to the reception because nobody picked up the phone down there when we dialed from the room as instructed by the welcome book. On top of all that the hotel is hugely overpriced. True, it is Boston and the breakfast buffet is very good and the bed is comfortable, except that you have to be really tall to get on it, and the shower is good and the towels are BW standard, but I will not come back again to this hotel and I cannot recommend it.

mkt3333, Winooski, Vermont 24/10/2016

For 4 years I have stayed here because my daughter has lived in the south end the the location is great....but now the hotel has undergone renovations to "upgrade the rooms" and they were great before the renovations and now the price per night is over the top. This last trip I paid over $300 per night for basically an average hotel with no amenities and terrible breakfast of triangle egg slices filled with american cheese and terrible, weak coffee. Too bad. When the price was lower, I could overlook the constant sirens, sketchy neighborhood, and skip-able breakfast. I would walk to the local gas station for coffee each morning. FOR THIS PRICE, NOT WORTH IT.

The room was very spacious and clean. Breakfast was very good with a lot of choices. The beverage bar and cookie treats in the lobby were very welcome. The staff was extremely helpful and answered all our questions. The shuttle drivers were very courteous and prompt, but it would have been nice to have this service run to the airport. The only downfall is the location of the hotel. It is in an industrial/medical zone so you hear sirens and large trucks rumbling by at all hours. We didn't spend too much time in the room, but it was hard to sleep through the noise.

"bad area"

gene k, Saint John, Indiana 23/10/2016

the hotel itself is very good. It has been remodeled recently and the rooms are very nice. They include a nice breakfast. They include a shuttle service that's free. They have to because the area is terrible. They (front desk) told one of the people in our party it's safe to walk around the Hotel. Ya right that's why they have a security guard on duty 24-7. When we went to park our car in the back of the Hotel there were two drug addicts trying to break into one of the cars. Its a changing area and if you can wait five years it should be ok. Again the Hotel itself is nice.

The only issue was the beds are too high for me. I am only 5' 3" and had a very hard time getting on the bed. A step stool would be helpful! Once on the bed the mattress was fine. A better arrangement to park my car, in the front of the building, while registering would be appreciated. The shuttle to hospital didn't start until 7:30am and we had to be at hospital before 6:00am.

"Beautiful Rooms, Scary Area, Very Noisy"

lakegirl60, Indiana 20/10/2016

This hotel was in the process of being completely refinished. It was lovely on the inside. The rooms were large, nicely decorated, clean, and very comfortable. The breakfast was good. The staff was very nice, but a little lacking in terms of information. The surrounding area was industrial, very run down, lots of homeless people hanging out, and a mecca of medical facilities. The ambulances and police sirens were very loud all night long. There were ear plugs provided at the bedside, but they can only do so much to block the sound. Public transportation to all the Boston points of interest was close by, however, we did not use it because we had a car.

"Noisy"

1
Nick C, Solihull, United Kingdom 19/10/2016

When you walk into your room and on the bedside table is a set of ear plugs and a notice acknowledging that there will be noises from machinery and ambulances throughout the day, you know you are not going to get a good night's sleep. So it turned out for me. I was woken at 3:30am by the deliveries at the waste tip next door. Not only did I only get 5 hours sleep but the wifi did not work in my room. Finally, this is a very dodgy part of town and taxis are reluctant to pick you up from here. Avoid, there are far better places to stay in Boston for the same money or less.

Very nice accommodations. The staff was very friendly and eager to please their guests, very helpful in providing travel and sightseeing information. The rooms are very comfortable and they have an excellent complimentary breakfast. Thanks especially to Addie and William!

"Great property, helpful staff, but noisy"

3
ManhattanSmith, Manhattan Beach, California 19/10/2016

Renovated rooms, free breakfast, free internet, free parking, helpful staff, and much lower priced than most Boston hotels. Sounds great. The problem is that noise from nearby streets, nearby hospital ambulances, and nearby industrial operations make it hard to sleep. Overall, I would probably pay more to get a better night's sleep.

"Wonderful shuttle service"

state1224, Tokyo, Japan 17/10/2016

This is a bit far from the St. Andrew tube station, but the hotel shuttle brings you. Actually the shuttle bus driver is very kind to bring you to anywhere you want in the downtown. The room is quite big and comfortable. Breakfast was also good. The floor staffs were cheerful and friendly.

"Better than some would suggest"

4
User 17/10/2016

Gave this 4 stars for what it is. The staff were very friendly, the breakfast was fine for a budget hotel (though price may not be that budget as Boston hotels are expensive) and they offer a shuttle to the T (subway stations). We have a renovated room which was nice (though the light fixtures were still dated). As other have said the area is not so great, but we budgeted this in and it cost $6-10 to get right in to the heart of Boston via Uber, which came in 2-5min upon request. The noise facing the road was a bit bad, provision of ear plugs shouldn't be necessary and instead they should have double pane windows.

"The worst check in staff ever"

mrszarella, New York City, New York 16/10/2016

I arrived around 3:45pm. As I came in I was greeted by a very rude front desk agent. I told her I had reservations and she told me she did not see it on her computer and then her colleague went looking and found it I was very upset because she didn't make and effort to look for it. After I came down I asked her for her name she quickly removed her name tag and gave me a name o Alena. I continue to get some information about the shuttle then she quickly dismissed me. I never met a rude front desk agent ever in my life especially one who lies about her name. I then proceeded by asking the shuttle driver the front desk agents name and he told me Natasha. I was very upset and confused on why she would lie. But other then that experience the hotel room perfect the breakfast staff awesome the food wasn't that great but manageable. I will return I just hope that the front desk agent won't be there.

JPete273, Redding, California 15/10/2016

Loved the people. Great Breakfast(More than most hotels). Pretty good room.Great shuttle to subway station or some local hospitals. TV was located in a bedroom instead of living area. YET...... It is in an industrial area. Garbage trucks making noise outside starting about 4am... Sirens for multiple hospitals and police all night long. Hotel did provide earplugs but that's not enough. It's unfortunate because otherwise I'd want to stay hear again. Also, the hotel directory in the room listing available services needs to be updated.

"beware"

User 15/10/2016

the hotel itself is fine. our room was a suite and was quite nice. breakfast is the normal fare. staff were nice. it was nice that there was a shuttle to the metro. on the downside--the area was shady and felt unsafe to walk alone. the noise was atrocious (they do give you earplugs). the wifi worked sporadically (we are talking about 30 seconds at a time). it was difficult to get to Boston in spite of the shuttle as the shuttle does not run frequently

"You get what you pay for...."

3
PeGe_sthlm, Stockholm, Sweden 12/10/2016

This is a hotel which is basically OK but nothing more. Located in a rather shady area, industrial sites dominate the view from the window, it is a bit off from the centre. It is also quiet noisy in the morning, and when the wind is in the wrong direction you have Logan take-off flavouring the background. Communications are not good, fortunately the hotel offers a shuttle which runs back and forth to the nearest T-stations. But, it is reasonably priced, so if you don't mind it is basically OK!

"Clean, "cheap" (relatively speaking), but..."

3
Anthony C, Mays Landing, United States 10/10/2016

It's a nice place, and staff are good, especially the shuttle driver we had. It will seem expensive until you check out other places in the city. The neighborhood is noisy. Kids doing wheelies in front late at night, & congregation of homeless (I counted 20) across the street hanging out around midnight before heading to their shelter up the street. Didn't bother me, not dangerous, but some people are easily scared. Inedible oatmeal & eggs at otherwise "ok" breakfast. Clean rooms. SLOWWWW elevator. Terrible wifi.

"Free Parking"

3
Steve K, Edmonton, Canada 10/10/2016

The main reason for booking this hotel was free parking - a big asset in Boston. The suite itself is quite nice. Would appreciate a few amenities such as glass drinking glasses and wine glasses. Area of the hotel not great but within walking distance of Back Bay plus hotel does provide a shuttle service.

"Great Value with Amazing Staff"

RATaylor, Toronto, Canada 08/10/2016

The staff did a wonderful job accommodating our parking needs as we arrived with our large Motorhome. The entire staff made us feel special at all times especially Front desk, security and shuttle staff. Amazing free breakfast selection! Would definitely stay here again!

"Disappointing"

1
1NadineGHL1, Manawatu-Wanganui Region, New Zealand 08/10/2016

Only good thing to say about this place is the shuttle driver Pablo (helpful and friendly). Front desk staff were the rudest we encountered on our three week visit to the USA. Managed to 'check-out' at the end of our stay without staff saying one word to me (not even hello or good morning), more interested in complaining about the computer and talking to her colleague about non-work related matters. The actual room needed the floor to be mopped, otherwise it was clean. No wifi in the room (only got coverage standing in the hallway). Can hear traffic/sirens in room (they did provide two packets of ear plugs, but there were four of us). Would not recommend the location either (witnessed drug deal taking place from the shuttle!). A terrible experience, would not recommend to anyone.

"Not a plus, more of a minus"

1
David B, Boston, United States 06/10/2016

Everywhere the place is in disrepair. The place is between two hospitals so there are sirens all night. The hotel actually ran out of regular coffee! The elevator numbers do not correspond with the actual floors numbers. The tub had severe corrosion, just looked dirty. Pubic hairs on the toilet when I arrived. The property is in a terrible part of town so be ready and willing to face down a community of transients. REALLY BAD HOTEL

"Poor location"

2
Sara C, London, United Kingdom 05/10/2016

Didn't feel this place was value for money. Breakfast was disappointing. Not near transport links. Shuttle only every 90 mins-terrible!! Staff were nice though. Rooms a good size and beds comfortable.

"Generally happy"

3
User 03/10/2016

The hotel very close to a very busy main street and once you left the lobby you were immediately aware of how close the traffic was. However, the room was relatively free of loud road noise. The area where the hotel is situated is not that convenient to the city and required a taxi ride to get to suitable restaurants. However, location is what yo pay extra for. Also, the area appeared to have a number of homeless people close by. This was explained as the fact the hotel is close to free medical facilities. The female members of our party were somewhat intimidated by this but we had no trouble overall. Rooms were comfortable and clean

LeeLToronto, Toronto 30/09/2016

Sept 12-13 this year, my daughter and I booked 2 nights a month in advance. Arrive at the hotel about 5:30 PM to be notifed they had no room, 'there was a computer problem and we are overbooked'. Sent me to a Ramada nearby, which also had no room as the Best Western had not confirmed the rooms when they inquired to availability earlier in the day. As it turned out there were NO ROOMS IN BOSTON that night, or the next. The Ramada manager finally got us a room in a Waltham Best Western - she was amazing, spent 40 minutes trying to find me a room and checking reviews here so I wouldn't end up in a bug infested hotel... Best Western did not care. It was a nightmare. Had to leave Boston the next day as couldn't find a room anywhere. .

"Quality Hotel and very good value for your dollar"

Harper B, Regina, Canada 28/09/2016

Best Western Plus met our high expectations once again however I was disappointed with the loud noise caused by a crowd gathering next door. This would I assume seem like a weekend occurence as the hotel provided ear plugs to cut down on the noise. Breakfast buffet was great with a lot of selection to choose from. Very good location to access Boton's attraction. The hotel provided a shuttle service to Boston area transit stops which made our accessability to the Boston area attractions very convenient. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful.

douge420, Los Angeles, California 25/09/2016

This hotel is on the very fringe of the city (when I called , they led me to believe otherwise) Far from public transportation and no amenities in the area. The numbers in the elevator are actually different then the floor!! CRAZY! No staff told us and we wandered around with our luggage. The internet does not work in the rooms. Period. I used the room phone to call the front desk, SOMETHING STICKY WAS ALL OVER IT! I really do not want to know what ended up on my hands and face. No bedding in the room for the pullout. Really, really disappointing. The hotel took off the tax for the stay. REALLY? the van driver was helpful.

Emma F, Cardiff, United Kingdom 22/09/2016

Visited and the shuttle service is great, gets you from a to be easily. The breakfast is also great my particular favourite being the waffles. Refreshments and snacks in the hotel lobby also a bonus added extra. Only thing is the sofa bed when you pull it out not the best nights sleep. Staff were friendly and welcoming, especially the breakfast staff.

"Boston Medical Center"

boisekari, Boise, Idaho 20/09/2016

The hotel is within walking distance to Boston Medical Center, altho they also provide a shuttle service. The area around this hotel is scary with druggies, homeless, beggars,and mentally ill. We would not want to walk around here at night. The rooms need to be updated in decor, but our beds were very nice. Also, the room was a suite and spacious with a bed and bath separated from living area. We stayed here only due to convenient location.

"Good but expensive"

4
Janet W, Pullman 19/09/2016

Convenient to Fenway Park and freeways. Used shuttle to baseball game but had to hoof it home after the game at 11 P.M. Price is steep ($498 for two nites) but reasonable concerning the location. Quite a few unsavory characters hanging around the hotel entrance.

Kim S, los angelas, United States 18/09/2016

Markus S, Nanaimo, Canada 14/09/2016

Situated in a bright industrial area. Street is noisy outside with ambulances and other traffic. Bright lights from industrial area makes it hard to sleep with no blinds on window. Staff were really nice and there is a shuttle to take you on a few different routes around town.

Went to Boston for a concert at Fenway and wanted a hotel close by. Chose the Best Western because it was around 2 miles away with a shuttle and FREE parking. After booking the hotel I read some of the reviews. Honestly if you always read reviews and some so negative, you would never travel. One of the biggest complaints in the reviews was that it was very noisy there. Well,you stay in a big city what do you expect!! It wasn't bad at all. The hotel is under renovation but that did not get in the way of how friendly the staff was and how nice the room was. I would definitely stay there again

This hotel had good reviews so we decided to try it out on our way through Massachusetts. It is clean but it is old. Very small rooms, we could hardly get our suitcases past the tv and bed. It is right next to the highway so you hear cars and trucks constantly traveling by. We were going to stay here two nights and do a few day trips, but decided to only stay one night and move on. Old and outdated. Staff is nice but rooms are small and outdated.

User 09/09/2016

The hotel is great for the money. The employees are extremely polite and nice. With the hospital and fire department near its a little noisy but that did not bother me. My daughter describes the area as the methadone mile. Next door are a lot of homeless people who are drunk and definitely messed up. They would look at you and say things as you walked by. I would not recommend walking outside around the hotel.

Shannon D, Richmond, United States 08/09/2016

Staff was friendly and breakfast was good. Only issue is the hotel is near the hospital so it can be loud. It wasnt too loud at night- but during the day there were constant sirens. The hotel cannot control the outside noise though. Everything about the hotel was 100%

User 07/09/2016

Refurbished rooms are beautiful - staff is friendly, helpful and efficient: BUT the location is terrible - located near hospitals and homeless shelters - lots of sirens day and night.

Upon arrival we found hair in the bed sheets and in the bath tub. Difficult to sleep in the morning with a noisy neibourghood. The wifi did not work in our room. We asked twice the front desk for assistance, never seen anyone to fix it. We had to stand in the hallway to use the WIFI. Sunday morning at breakfast the potatoes were rotten. Before we left on Sunday, upstairs Staff were chatting and ignored us blatantly after we say hello waiting for the elevator. I do not recommend this hotel.

Great place to stay a few blocks away from the center of the city. The surroundings were a bit dangerous-looking but the hotel was beautiful and safe. The room was very clean and spacious ( we had a suite). I would definetly stay here in the future again with my boyfriend but probably not by myself considering the area it is in. There is a shuttle that takes you to various spots which made us feel safe. Overall a great place to stay when visiting Boston.

We had a king suite which was clean and nicely decorated but very small. We were warned of renovations before booking and they proved to be a non issue but what we didn't know about was that the hotel was situated in an industrial area near a hospital and fire station. The hotel provided ear plugs for sleeping and they were needed. Location was convenient however for accessing Fenway and downtown. Free breakfast was fair but Victoria's diner up the street was great. Staff was friendly a d helpful.

shannon b, Grants Pass, Oregon 30/08/2016

We booked this room because it has a shuttle. That being said the last shuttle is 915 pm. We were there at 918 called the front staff hung up on my husband two times. When we finally got to speak with them did not give instructions on where we are to meet the van . As my esp is on thr fritz we where on the wrong side i guess called 3 more times. Finally 30 min later i was told to get a cab. The staff did not even want to give us the number for a cab. As i was calling the cab THE VERY NICE HILTON DRIVER OFFERED TO GIVE US A LIFT AT NO CHARGE . YES WE GAVE HIM A 20 DOLLARS TIP. I am not happy. I would have given a 1 rating for this but the room is nice.just an fyi i never give bad reviews but this really made me upset!

Christina R, Hamden, Connecticut 30/08/2016

My friends and I stayed here for a few days during the 4th of July weekend. We got to the desk and they were very friendly, but gave us the key card to the wrong room. Honest mistake-no biggie. The rooms were pretty spacious and had enough room for the 4 of us. I liked that there was a refrigerator and microwave. The breakfast every morning wasn't fabulous, but it wasn't horrible. It's free so what more could you ask for? Make sure you make yourself some waffles! The free wifi doesn't really work-which is maybe why it's free. The shuttle is great, but really needs to run later. My friend and I got stuck at the T with dead cell phones(our fault), so we were unable to even call them to come get us. Plus it was the night of the fireworks, so you think they would try to run later than 9:30. Thankfully we were able to catch a cab dropping someone off. One of the nights we were there, we came back probably after 1AM and none of us had a key card- that was pretty stupid of us, all of thinking one of us had it. The staff on duty gave us another card for no charge, which was super nice. If you're not really used to "urban" locations, don't stay here, it's not for you. LOL. Not too many places to eat nearby, but if you search you'll find one. There is parking, so if you have your car-take it to find a place to eat.

"Spacious suite for group of 3"

User 29/08/2016

Stayed 4 days in July/August 2016 in a group of 3. Surprised with the size of the room that accommodated 3 guys quite comfortably, with decent size beds (including sofa), bathroom and sinks to provide a bit of breathing space. Service wasn't the best aspect as we had some issues with lost luggage that were complicated by front desk, and required an additional detour to the airport and several lost hours. This was after very clear and detailed discussion around the handling of said items and still resulted in a debacle. The location is kind of dodgy however we relied on uber to pick up from the front door and security was always around to move on the inebriated individuals who crowd the area.

Pleasant helpful staff and a well kept facility make this a good choice when attending an event at Fenway Park. It is also well located for other visitor events and the shuttle will helpfully get you to major transportation hubs.

FaithAnn Y, Richfield Springs, New York 28/07/2016

Roundhouse Suites includes in their price a large and delicious breakfast buffet in a separate dining room. Great way to start the day. Parking is included, as well, which is very difficult to find in Boston. We were happy to not have to pay a separate garage fee. If you want to leave your car in the lot and if you're not up for the < 1 mile walk to the nearest subway station, the BW provides a shuttle (included) to two different stops AND will accommodate additional stops (for a tip) if they can fit it into their schedule. Very friendly drivers! We walked sometimes and used the shuttle others. There is a McD's across the street and a Cumberland Farms (large convenience store) just a few buildings away and a gas station next door for evening food/snacks. We would have loved to have been closer to city center, but it just wasn't affordable. THIS BW option was clean and polite (they offer fresh coffee, water and fruit all day in the lobby) and a great option for families needing to watch their budget. Enjoy Boston!

Keith G, Fort Mill, United States 27/07/2016

Location is not good and all rooms need to be renovated. The industrial traffic is very loud in the mornings. The breakfast was just fruit, juice, and coffee. The staff is not that friendly and there was confusion with our online reservation at check in.

amathteacher, Irving, Texas 21/07/2016

This Best Western has been and is undergoing renovations. Our room and its bathroom were spacious. Breakfast was the usual type of Best Western spread with sausage, ready-made omelets, waffle-maker, fruit, etc. Desk staff were helpful and pleasant. Bed was comfortable although it sits VERY high so getting in could be a problem for some people.

Medstrike, Haddonfield, NJ 14/07/2016

When we arrived in a group of four on a business trip, the front desk at first could find a reservation for only one room, the for two, even though our group leader had a confirmation email for four rooms. Fortunately they had two other rooms and could accommodate all four of us. The hotel advertises free Wifi, but it did not exist in my room. I lost two hours of valuable time the first day and more the morning of the second day when I could not connect. I called the Best Western toll free tech support number twice and both times was told one or more routers were out and they would take care of it within 10 minutes. They never did and I was out of luck. As notes in some other reviews the location is not great and I don't know that I'd want to walk around there at night. The room was OK, a bit faded, like the rest of the hotel. Fitness center was very small, with four pieces of equipment. Fortunately it was empty when I was there. Breakfast was good with a lot of choices: hot and cold cereal, toast, muffins, bagels and pastry, yogurt, fruit, eggs, waffles, three kinds of juice and coffee and tea. All things considered I would not stay here again.

User 10/07/2016

We are regular users of Best Western and this will be the last time that we use Best Western due to the lack of internet. The hotel is well located, the rooms are excellent and the breakfast room is well presented and has great options. When a hotel say's they have high speed internet and we can't access the internet at all from our room l get upset. We left after two days and moved to another hotel. In this day and age you need internet and this is the third Best Western in the past 6 weeks where we have had this problem, as a Diamond select member l will vote with my feet, no more Best Western and as we are on the road 6 months of the year, every year l choose to move my business.

Cornelius B, Downtown Boston, United States 05/07/2016

Terrible experience appalling simply put stay away at any expense. They call this building The Roundhouse for a reason. Noise level was too laud at all times. No security if any; however, the police frequent this area. Violence everywhere, drug dealers and junkies everywhere. Fighting non stop and you can see and hear everything. Pest everywhere. Old furniture and carpeting, refrigerator didn't work, ice machine cover was falling/hanging off, brunch was limited buffet food looked dirty and old especially the fruit, the juice at the juice bar in the lobby looked containmenated. The staff and management never smile meaning they clearly aren't happy. They gave me an ear; however, they never listened to my concerns.

slctravelersSLCUtah, SLC Utah 30/06/2016

The hotel itself is really quite nice. The room was much larger than I would have expected given the size of Boston. The breakfast was a decent BWP breakfast with eggs and bacon. The staff were great. As others commented, the neighborhood is a bit rough; however, I did walk the neighborhood towards the hospital with my teenage daughter and we were never bothered by the apparent street people. The little pizza place across the street is pretty good as well. The shuttle has a schedule, and they stick to it fairly well. The location is ~10 minute drive to Logan airport. I'd stay again.

"Terrible Service"

User 30/06/2016

No air conditioning in our room. No other rooms available and no fan for the room. Switched room after 1 night and had no internet access. The complimentary shuttle to the Transit stop (one of the reasons we stayed here) left us stranded for over an hour and a half our first night ... then over 45 minutes or third night. Morning staff never relayed our problems to staff to remedy the situations, so they offered us a small credit which we never received. Manager approved the credit the day we checked out, but he no longer works there. The girl who actually issues the credit is never there or available to talk to about it. Had to go to Best Western corporate to try and get this resolved.

User 28/06/2016

Overall the stay was okay. Okay service, okay rooms, decent breakfast. The hotel is VERY noisy from street noise. So much so that they include earplugs in the room. Location is a bit sketchy but the shuttle gets you to the T in order to get around town.

manny802, Springfield, Vermont 26/06/2016

My partner and I called from the road trying to book in Cambridge however there was no rooms left. They stated the BW Roundhouse in Boston had a king room available. We took it. It is a quite suite. It is pretty clean. The staff is very friendly. Nice continental breakfast and price was great! We did have loud neighbors but settled down. The one large problem is they have very little parking and their drive is hidden we drove by it twice

The complimentary breakfast and the people staffing it is wonderful. Extremely professional, friendly and helpful. I do hope guests tip these staff members as they aim to please and appreciation should be shown to them.

They cannot find your booking most of the time and you will need to spend a lot of time finding your booking. It took me 2 days to reverse the charge they mistakenly charged me which I redeemed through reward program. I'm still waiting for my refund and not to mention I might loose out on my exchange rate as I am not using USD credit cards. You will not believe you will still need to deal with the aftermath 27 days after staying there.

travisG45, Ohio 20/06/2016

I booked my room via Amex travel, and prepaid for the entire thing months in advance. But after driving 6 hours, I was told, upon arrival at 9pm in a part of town that I know nothing about, with two young exhausted kids in tow, that my prepaid room was given away due to a shortage in rooms caused by overbooking and a water leak. Their answer was to transfer me to a nearby hotel and then come get me the next day to come back to their hotel, which wasnt feasible for me because I was at family events from 7am the next day until well after 10pm. I needed the hotel room a paid for in advance for 2 straight days. Stuff happens. I get it. But my complaints about how this was handled. They had my phone number. They very easily could have called me and let me know that this was happening. Yet they did not. They gave me no warning, prior to or during my 6 hour drive, that my room was given away. I had no way to find a room on my own that would better suit my needs rather than relying on the replacement room that they came up with (and I'm not sure how they feel that a suite is equitably replaced with a 1 king bed for 2 adults and 2 kids). Secondarily, the front desk person was incredibly rude, claiming that my prepaid reservation was not prepaid (???) and that they were doing me a favor by sending me to another hotel at no charge. She repeated this over and over, including to my bewildered Amex travel consultant who was just as confused as I was, insisting that, yes, this was a prepaid reservation. apparently, they were doing me a favor by not making me pay twice for the same night? The front desk clerk had a huge attitude and was not willing to give an inch. At the end of the day, Amex made it right and fully refunded my PREPAYMENT. But I will never stay here, and likely never at another Best Western (2 chances, 2 hotels, 2 awful experiences).

monajrawles, Harrisonburg, Virginia 20/06/2016

close to Boston Medical Center so expect high volume of sirens, plus extra sirens from police and fire/rescue vehicles. also close to large bus parking lot so will hear lots of safety back-up beeping. still, there is a good staff, security at front door, free parking!, free shuttle to rapid transit and train stations, good breakfast included with price, and if you wear yourself out walking downtown historic Boston after walking the mile to and from a rapid transit station like we did- the noise just won't matter! the air conditioning didn't work (if there really is any, that is) and the room really got muggy, plus the maintenance staff was never able to fix the bedroom tv remote which was very inconvenient, but all in all- the good far outweighed the bad

LizAtHomeLa, Louisiana 10/06/2016

Had two rooms here. A/C didn't work in either room, asked for new rooms. Were assured it would be resolved by the time we returned from dinner at 11 pm. When we returned it had been resolved by them opening the windows. One window slammed down on my husbands finger leaving a blood blister. The metal cover from the A/C fell on my daughter's foot. They said they had no new room to give us. Gave us a refund. The rest of our party arrived the next day, they were also given rooms with no a/c and broken toilet (not the same room #'s as ours). Upholstered chairs are stained and there was no place to put a suitcase on and no closet to hang clothes. We weren't the only ones at the desk at 11 pm with issues.

This was our third year to stay at the Best Western Roundhouse, Boston, Massachusetts. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel for many reasons. We were there for my husband to be treated and monitored for Amyloid in his lungs at the Medical Facilities specializing in treatment for his condition. It is always a stressful trip because of all the test and medical procedures he experiences. The hotel is an older hotel but is extremely well maintained and offers so many amenities for a very fair price. We were treated by every employee with total respect. Our gratitude for their assistance and attitude, we always saw nothing but friendly faces everyday. The breakfast offered was amazing and it was always a great way to start our day. In the evening when we arrived back at the hotel at the end of the day, you could smell the fresh baked cookies in the lobby and of course they were offered, along with coffee, tea and other delicious beverages. They provided free parking and a shuttle to take you almost anywhere you needed to go to connect to the trains. We were so grateful for all this being available as part of the amenities. Huge thanks for making this hotel a great place to relax. See you next year.

The entire experience with the stay at this hotel was horrendous. From unhelpful, impolite staff, to extremely poor internet, poor quality breakfast with paper plates and unkempt dishes. This is an extremely overpriced hotel for the jaw-droppingly poor service they provide. I'd recommend a torn tent compared to this place.

We stayed in the Roundhouse for 3 nights in beginning of May. We liked the room layout and that we had an in room safe. Beds were very comfy. Breakfast had a good variety even though we don't understand why plates and cups all has to be plastic. All the staff we spoke to were extremely helpful and service minded. BUT the area is rough and unpleasant. Don't even think of going out on foot after dark. SO if you drive to and from hotel directly and stay inside, it is a good, average price hotel.

I see a lot of comments about rough neighborhood but you can't change it. There is round the clock security and during my multiple stays, I have never felt scared. Everything from room comfort to breakfast are awesome. There is no doubt that with these renovations this hotel will be a much sought-after property.

User 06/05/2016

We stayed in the roundhouse for two nights in April. It was easily located, but I was a bit put off by the location on a shady industrial area. They have no unloading area, or attached parking, so you block the one lane driveway where the shuttle parks to get checked in and told where to park. This was an abandoned detached lot across the street. The one with the un-manned guard shack that smells like urine that had no working cameras I could see. We did park there without incident but did not leave anything of value in the vehicle. Check in was smooth, keys worked, but nothing was explained. You had to ask about breakfast particulars, no pool, the manual in the room says see front desk for key to access workout room, they looked at me like I was crazy and escorted me in. It was in the basement, and hot. Clean towels and water were provided. The room was a cool layout, with an in room safe. Only complaint was the AC didn't go lower than 68 and it blew right into the bed. So you were freezing until it popped off, then you were hot until it came back on, which happened constantly all night. We did not experience any noise from other rooms. The shuttle service was fab, he even took us past the T the one day. The evening before we left, I requested express checkout, the desk clerk said no problem. Yet upon waking and after breakfast the next day, still no bill under the door. Had to check out at the desk. FYI best western keys need not be returned to check out. Overall, it was still pricier than what we got out of the experience.

While this hotel is not new and doesn't have the latest decor, they do an excellent job where it matters. The room was spotless, spacious, and well-stocked with everything you will need. The bed was comfortable and the linens were soft and fresh. The room was surprisingly quiet, especially given the location on Mass. avenue, within walking distance to all the things we needed to get to. More than anything, though, I can't say enough good things about the staff--they bend over backward to make you feel like the most important guests in the world. A special shout-out to Elisha at the front desk and Lewis in the shuttle. Well done!

I go to many hotels due to my work and hobbies the staff here were some of the best I have ever seen. The location and building was average, I lost my parking spot since it's a first come first serve due to a huge event at the con center. The staff was always ready to fix any problem I ran into. Lost spot, allowed me to park in the front. Room mishap due to hotels.com gave me equal value rooming. late to breakfast, took out something for me to eat. They were on top of everything. If there is a single person that really deserves praise would be Rebecca. She was there and courteous the whole time.

rubbert, Massachusetts 28/04/2016

As a Diamond Rewards member I have stayed at many many many Best Western Hotels across the country. This one is the worst in every category and I will never stay here again. If I experience another stay such as this in another Best Western Hotel I will take my business elsewhere. I made a reservation the day before as my wife had an appointment at Boston Medical for her heart condition and we wanted a nice place to relax the night before to avoid traffic as we live over an hour away from Boston. I reserved a King Suite at this Best Western PLUS Hotel. Upon check in I was informed they did not have a King Suite available so than why was I allowed to make a reservation? I was given a room with 2 double beds instead. This room was a complete disgusting rat hole at a total cost of $215.00 for the night. - One of the beds was broken -the furniture appeared to have been tossed around as it was all banged up -one of the lamps was broken - with a hole in the base -the toilet was broken - it was like sitting on a rocking chair -the bath tub did not hold water -the room was dark and grungy -the carpet was disgusting -the room smelled -I did not receive my welcome package either -there was a hypodermic needle in the parking lot!!!! I called the front desk to request better accommodations and was informed that they had nothing available and left me to fume! They did not send anyone to check on our situation and I had to call 3 more times before I was finally told they were "fixing up a spare room for us and someone would bring us the keys" Keys were brought to us and we moved to room 105 which had a walk-in shower and no tub which was something we were anticipating to use. AND the shower head was broken AND the bathroom sink sprayed water all over the vanity top when using. To further top this off the following morning while in the breakfast room a security person dressed like a black panther came in interrogating everyone there inquiring who was staying in room 301. It was very unprofessional and guests were made to feel like they were in some sort of prison camp. The Hotel is a round building which is fitting as I would compare it to a big toilet. The staff is obviously not trained to identify poor accommodations. The fact that this room was rented out is a sign that they are incompetent as any idiot could see the obvious problems and than not be able to address things in a better way. Our stay was a complete disaster. I am so dissatisfied with this entire experience and given the reason why we were there and why I chose Best Western I am even more unhappy. I do expect a response to this complaint or I will take my business to another Hotel.

Linda M, St. Catharines, Canada 25/04/2016

The location is in a busy industrial / medical area. The hotel provides ear plugs, however we found we didn't need/use them as we ran the fan (on the thermostat) all night creating white noise. Although the neighborhood may be considered "rough", it's not violent. We walked back from the downtown area late at night with no issues. Sadly, if you walk, you do encounter a fair share of homeless individuals (probably due in part to the proximity to the hospital. The hotel is clean and very well run. The staff is beyond friendly and helpful ... they made the stay great! The breakfast was plentiful, fresh, and there was enough assortment that everyone found something they liked. I thought it great that the hotel didn't nickel and dime or gouge us: complimentary coffee, juice, cookies and fruit in the lobby, in addition to coffee and water in the room, and the included breakfast. For the money, we'd definitely stay there again.

"A game of two halves"

User 24/04/2016

First half: this hotel is very good at what it does, that is provide good value accommodation. Our room was spotlessly clean, the staff were, without fail, excellent and the breakfast was great value. Second half: this is all about the location. It is situated in an industrial area and next to a hospital which means it is noisy. Also, and I think this is pretty important, there are a lot of pretty unsavoury characters hanging around at all times, begging for money from cars at the big crossroads. I will say that we were never hassled but it did feel uncomfortable to the extent that we preferred to get a cab back at night rather than walk. The hotel is about 20 minutes' walk from the main tourist areas but a shuttle bus is available at fairly regular intervals. Would I stay again? Yes, with the proviso that the price was right and I got a cab back right to the front door!

tutijara, Affoltern Am Albis, Switzerland 16/04/2016

We were a family of 4 in a car trip through new England so we needed a hotel with parking and easy access to highways. After reading some of the reviews we were afraid that the area would not be safe, but were positively surprised by the location. It's close to downtown Boston and to the highways; it's not a pretty Street but it's OK. There is some noise at night but with the ear plugs it's fine. However, the best about this hotel is the staff. Rebecca Ortega checked us in and out and I can't praise her enough for how kind, understanding and accommodating she was with us. I would totally go back to this hotel.

""See if anyone is in the room""

Cristina T, Boston, United States 16/04/2016

I stayed at the Best Western Plus and arrived at 1:30am after a late flight. My room had been given to another guest and all of the rooms were booked. The woman at the front desk proceeded to give me a key to a room and told me to go to the room and "check if anyone was inside. For some reason I did this and I am so glad the room was empty, but unfortunately the carpets had just been cleaned so it was not available. She they told me to look at another room. I asked if the security guard could do it because I didn't feel safe. She said - "that's not his job." They had to move me to another hotel in the middle of the night and I didn't get to sleep until 3am and had a meeting the next morning. The whole ordeal was completely bizarre.

"Staff is extremely nice."

Yajaira L, United States 15/04/2016

The rooms can use some updating but overall it was clean and comfortable. They have complimentary breakfast every morning with a very good variety. They also bake cookies in the lobby for their guests and have fresh fruit and coffee. The staff is very friendly and nice. I would consider staying here again just because of the staff.

"Good Value Security Issues"

kcrules, albany 14/04/2016

The hotel is a good value, clean rooms, good breakfast, free parking in Boston and a shuttle around the area. The security issue, since when does a hotel collect a photo copy of your drivers license, this is a security issue that can lead to identity theft, where does this info go after you check out, in a shredder, or in the trash where anyone has access. I belong to the Best Western rewards club and I am using a major credit card, I should only have to show the front desk my ID not a photo copy taken, this practice needs to stop right away. I stay in hotels 30-45 nights a year and never has this happened.

Devon D, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Roundhouse Suites, responded to this review
Dear Valued Guest , We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the amenities that the hotel provided! I do see that you have some concerns of the security measures we took to provide a safe, and secure visit to our city. The only reason we would make a copy of an ID would be if a cash payment was made at Check Out /Check . However there must be some confusion which we will address immediately with the Front Office Team. We apologize if this made you uncomfortable in any way as that is the last thing we wanted to do, we would like to express our greatest thanks for choosing our property for your destination in Boston. Please give us a call at 617-989-1000 and we can confirm with you that we will shred that copy for you to ease your mind. . Thank You and Have a wonderful Day, Best Western Plus Boston Formerly Known as Roundhouse Hotel Management Staff

ute4252, Braunschweig, Germany 14/04/2016

the Hotel and the room was OK, but in the neighbourhood is a medical Center, that must be the reason for so many drugs addicted people arround the Hotel ... I was really frightend, I don´t know something from Germany, I was unpleasant surprised. That´s why I can´t recommend this place... but the People in the Hotel where very nice and helpful ...

Dawn M, Macedon, United States 13/04/2016

The location is in a bad part of the city. The internet did not work. There was major construction in the hotel so the water was shut off from 10am-3pm on Monday and Tuesday. The carpets were professionally cleaned however the scent was so strong, I had a migraine and had to move rooms. The staff was friendly. The lobby was very nice and served cookies/coffee/water/fruit. The Breakfast was also very nice. Once of the best. I would not stay again due to the location and safety.

"Good hotel, Neighborhood in transition"

netnurse, Baltimore, Maryland 12/04/2016

During our stay, the hotel was in the process of renovations. That said, the room was comfortable and warm. The hot water was heaven and there was plenty of it! As I said, the renovations were obvious. Cosmetic things were a miss in our room, but none of it impacted our stay. Other reviews mentioned the sirens and neighborhood. For us, this was all a part of being in a urban hotel setting near a very busy ER. They provide earplugs in the room and there is signage regarding the remodeling and street noise. We were not there during the day, so I don't know about the construction noise. Overall, the room was neat, clean, warm with plenty of hot water. We didn't personally care for the breakfast, so we went to the McDonalds across the street. We didn't know there was a parking lot next to the property, so we parked in back in the gas station. Very close access to I 93 and 90. While there were people about outside, no one was lingering around the hotel itself, nor where they in the lobby. If you use normal precautions for urban city travel, you should be just fine. I went to McDonalds to grab coffee and we walked 15 min. to the T and felt safe. Once the renovations are done, we would stay there again.

"Wonderful service"

Jennifer K, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States 31/03/2016

The service was exceptional. We were greeted each time we came back to the hotel and little things like bottled water in the rooms and cookies and fresh fruit in the lobby were a nice touch. The women who ran the breakfast were so friendly and the breakfast was delicious and there were many different choices so no one will go hungry. Our room was very clean and had a small refrigerator and microwave. One thing to be aware of is that there is a door to the bedroom that is glass and has a sheer curtain over it so while it is a door it is partially see-through. They are renovating the hotel's 5th and 6th floors. We were on the 4th floor but did not hear much noise. They did tell us at check-in that they put us on the opposite side of where they were renovating so maybe that helped. The area around the hotel is industrial and they did have a security guard. There is a nice pizza/burger restaurant across the street as well as a McDonald's and a gas station. I did use the exercise room which had a treadmill, bike and elliptical.

"Good hotel, terrible neighborhood"

Skeptik2010, New York City, New York 30/03/2016

The hotel is actually really nice, and I agree with others that the rooms are spacious, and well-kept. The only problem is the neighborhood. Our first day, my son and I took the bus into town (wasn't aware of the shuttle), so we walked to the bus stop about 5 minutes from the hotel. Drug addicts were all over the place. At night, I would not be comfortable outside (though we might venture out tonight); I have not seen any restaurant other than MacDonald's and a seedy looking pizzeria across the street. Quite noisy outside because it's a major thoroughfare. So you have to take good with the bad. Our room was immaculately kept, and it was large. Breakfast wasn't bad at all, much better than I expected with hardboiled eggs being a nice touch. Coffee was good too. But location really put a damper on the experience, and I will not return here nor be able to recommend.

rustygupta, charlotte 28/03/2016

During the family first trip to Boston , we stayed at Best for the first time. What an experience! Could we get better - Maybe.... the location - but no way can anybody beat the welcome that we got here. From the smiling front desk staff to the obliging room service and not to forget the early morning breakfast spread. Even the drivers of 24 hour shuttle to nearby metro were perfect in their attitude. The security person let us borrow his extra personal Charlie card- now who would do that. And this is from a person who travels a lot. If that were not enough their manager Mr. Vic Khokha personally met with and thanked us. He runs a good ship.

Janet C, Miami, Florida 20/03/2016

I was pleasantly surprised by the comfort in the room, small though practical. Good to have a sofa to sit and relax after long working day. The WiFi worked perfectly so I managed to have work done in the room too. The breakfast lounge is ample and the variety of food decent. Loved the vanity at the bathroom, large and very well lighted. Indeed, the hotel provides earplugs, however, when I stayed, they were absolutely unnecessary. It was very quiet at night. Will definitely consider this hotel next time business would bring me to Boston.

molsonalex, montreal 10/03/2016

I stayed at this hotel on Feb 19 and 20. I booked this hotel because it had free parking, free wifi and wasn't expensive but I never thought the rooms would be that big! It's a suite, well a small suite but we were really comfortable for 2. Could have been 4 easily. There were a tv in the "living room" and one in the room. Probably about 42" if my memory serves me well. It was clean. We had free bottles of water in the fridge, soap, earplugs (yep you read that right). They had earplugs because it's really near the highway and close to an hospital but anyway that didn't prevent me from sleeping. The A/C and heater can be quite noisy too but I didn't really care. It's at about 10 minutes by car to Trillium and Row 34. Now the staff. Wow! I've never had a better service in my life elsewhere. They are all really great. The service at the morning breakfast buffet is awesome. On the first day there were even more staff than clients. Service at the checkin is also awesome. Honestly I don't know what I would have changed as for the service. Like I said previously one of the reason I chose this resort was because of the free parking. I could see my car from my room which was great. At other hotels in Boston it's about $50 per night which is insane! Sure the room showed a bit of wear and tear but nothing really urgent. My 5 star review is based on the price vs size of room + quality of service + all the goodies includes. I would sure go back any time and will recommend it to all my beer geek friends wanting to go to Boston.

I chose this hotel because it is conveniently located near the Brigham and Womens Hospital which I have to go to every 3 months. The hotel itself is very nice. The location is convenient also for shopping and nearby restaurants. The sidewalks leading to the building are in horrible shape and in the dark pose a risk of falling. Extremely noisy and not a place to get any sleep, they do provide earplugs if that tells you anything

My visit to Boston was enhanced by my stay at the Best Western Roundhouse. I was worried when we arrived. The hotel is in a rough looking area. Everything changed when we got inside to be welcomed by a bright clean and soothing atmosphere. Most of this feeling was due to the warmth and professionalism of Elisha Cherry, the young woman who checked us in, saw to our needs and gave us great tips about getting the most out of Boston, as well as Jose the very handy and attentive engineer. I would be more than likely to recommend to friends

"Nice hotel in Boston"

KarenandTag, Salem, NH 18/02/2016

My husband and I stayed at the BWP Roundhouse just overnight so we could take in a couple of the attractions in Boston. I was impressed with the cleanliness of the hotel and the room. It's an all-suite hotel so we had a small living room with couch, chair, desk, fridge, micro and sink. There were French doors into the bedroom which was spacious with an extra chair. Bathroom was very clean. PROS: Clean, comfortable bed. Complimentary shuttle to T stop and area hospitals. My kudos to the shuttle driver, Enrique, who drove us directly to the restaurant we chose because it was so bitterly cold out and insisted he pick us up there as well. The complimentary breakfast was typical but varied and plentiful and the staff in the breakfast room worked hard to keep everything stocked and clean. They had some earplugs available with a note saying they know it can get a little noisy because they are near the hospitals but I didn't need them and I'm a very light sleeper. The parking is free. CONS: They are in an area that is not near a Tstop but as I said, the shuttle worked very well for our needs. The only other negative was the parking. It's behind the hotel, far from the sight of the front desk and in a somewhat seedy looking area. There is no easy way to get from the parking lot to the front door of the hotel. Our car came through unscathed!

Eduard0AA, Porto Alegre 11/02/2016

I've been there during 5 nights. They have an awesome crew in front desk. They are always gentle, friendly and willing to help. In the other hand, the hotel is quite old, the air conditioning (when it works), is really noisy - like an old truck! In addition, the amount of dust it releases in the air is incredible. The breakfast is interesting but, excepting the variation between bacon and turkey hamb, it was exactly the same all the week long. Also, as it is located in an industrial area, there is a lot of noise (in addition to the air conditioning), so as, the hotel itself gives you a complimentary ear plug to cancel the noise.

"Exceptional especially for a long stay due to medical visit in Boston"

Bill F, asheville, United States 22/01/2016

Highly recommend for those needing an extended stay for a family member requiring medical treatment in Boston. At half the price of most other "suite" hotels it is a great value, and convenient to Brigham Hospital. Quality staff. Walk across the street to a small take out diner for great meals at a fraction of the price you'd pay in nearly all hotel restaurants. Your first impression might not be the best, an actual round building from the 1950s, but when saving a hundred dollars a night compared to other nearby hotels. . .well you balance looks versus savings. The fees that can eat you up in most urban hotels: parking, internet, and such are free at this hotel. They have very visible 24/7 security in the front lobby to keep an eye on your car (having once been vandalized in the parking garage of a far more upscale hotel I appreciated the security) There shuttle service is good, except for late at night, and a special compliment to one of their drivers Pablo who went out of his way to be helpful to us. Only drawback, there is a major EMT facility a block away so sirens are part of life. . .if you are use to urban noise it isn't a bother, but some might find it troubling (the hotel does provide earplugs!) In closing it "ain't fancy" but that is off set by a high quality staff, convenience to Brigham Hospital, and that really great diner across the street..

Upon check-in the women at reception were extremely warm and welcoming! Very genuinely interested in making my sister and I feel welcome. The room was perfect and we appreciate the water and coffee for us. Our beds were extremely comfortable. Once again, the staff at reception during check-out in the morning (they were two different women from the day before) were so nice and appreciative. I work at a 5 star resort and I can certainly say we experienced a high standard of service here, and we look forward to staying in the future. Thank you all so much!!!

So the previous reviews about the hotel being in a dodgy area were concerning- we didn't really know what to expect as we were gonna spend new years in the city. however when we reached the hotel it was actually better than we expected. the parking was convenient, the check in was relatively straight forward (well, the lady could have been friendlier). After unpacking everything, we discovered that the sofa bed was missing its mattress. my partner went down to the reception- and this was where customer service was at its lowest standard. receptionist acting frustrated and rolling their eyes wasn't exactly what we wanted to experience after an 8hour drive to boston. the bell boy helped us to move to another room after we requested for it- seeing that they couldn't even sort out a missing mattress. again, a smile wouldn't hurt. on the 3rd day, when we arrived back at the hotel late, we were told to evacuate our room due to electrical issue. and after settling in the room, we found out that there was no hot water at all. in the corridor we heard that everyone was having the same issue- fire dept forgetting to turn it back on after fixing whatever the issue was earlier in the day. the lady walked off without telling us how long it's gonna take etc or what to expect. again, zero customer service. check out day- 2 people at the reception insisted that we hadn't paid for our room (which we did at check-in). of course we were right, we knew that our card's being charged. really, if all this was done with some courtesy or smiles or just less attitude... i would've been more than okay with our stay.

Stopped at this hotel during our hardest time, with frequent visits to the hospital. Amenities and breakfast are very good. But the best part was the great people working there. Helpful, sincerely caring. Want to especially mention the shuttle drivers : Enrique Robles and Pablo ( Ramos?). Attentive, personable and just nice people. Thank you for your support!

If you travel to Boston and do not want to overpay for your hotel, I highly recommend to book a room in this roundhouse. It's located next to the center (nice area) of Boston, so it will not take you much time to get to the city's downtown or the Freedom Trail. The service overall was very "high-quality" for the price range.

Dear Anton V Thank you so much for the great feedback about your stay with us at the Best Western. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. On behalf of the Best Western it was our pleasure to have you as a guest. We hope you come back soon. Sincerely Devon D Hotel Ambassador

Warm cookies in the lobby on arrival, the BEST breakfast I've ever seen laid out at a hotel. Room is satisfactory for stay. Shower pressure was great!! Free wifi was nice feature. The only odd thing was the heat was off in the room. It is January and we just assumed heat would be on but got quite chilly in the night. Heat worked fine in the morning when we realized we needed to turn it on. There were no extra blankets in the room.

First of all, this hotel is not downtown and therefor less expensive. Our suite had a nice expanse, divided in two rooms. A microwave oven and a coffee machine allow longer stays. Not far from the hotel is a hospital with some ambulances starting and running in. However, the hotel offers you ear plugs. The breakfast presents a nice selection, though the excess of plastic might be shocking to Europeans. Only two real downsides: no ventilation in our windowless bathroom and a weak WIFI. All in all a clean, considerable hotel with kind staff for those who visit Boston by car.

Devon D, Guest Relations Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Roundhouse Suites, responded to this review
Dear Michl49N Thank you so very much for taking the time to share your experience during your time at our hotel.

We hope you will consider staying with us again when your travels bring you to Boston again. Thank you so much once again for your honest feedback Sincerely

Our stay at the Best Western Plus Roundhouse was incredible: the staff went out of their way to be helpful; the room was big with a living room and a bedroom, as well as two televisions with up to 70 channels; the complimentary shuttle to the subway stops was convenient; the breakfast was excellent and there was usually fruit available in the lobby - they even baked cookies for us! The wifi only really worked in the lobby and in the computer room, but we didn't use it that much anyway. Overall, highly recommended!
