The place is a little bit worn down, and smells a bit old, but rooms are very spacious. 10-12munutes walking distance from Back Bay station, and very close to a few different subway stations. The surrounding area is not very lively, but has a few neat places (go to Thornton's for breakfast!). Overall we had an okay stay at $107 per night.

This was a fantastic stay and we would definitely stay again! We started off our trip on the wrong foot, the airport having lost our luggage and a late evening arrival but as soon as we got into the hotel we were greeted by a lovely gentleman who took all of 2 minutes to put us at ease and put a smile on our faces.

This was a fantastic stay and we would definitely stay again! We started off our trip on the wrong foot, the airport having lost our luggage and a late evening arrival but as soon as we got into the hotel we were greeted by a lovely gentleman who took all of 2 minutes to put us at ease and put a smile on our faces. He was able to get us checked in promptly and even spent 5 minutes talking to us about our lost luggage and that he would do his best to keep us updated on anything if we were out of the room and the airport got in contact with the hotel. I will say this is definitely not a 5* hotel but I will say one thing, the room that my partner and I were given was bigger and more well planned than those fancy hotels. The room was clean and looked after each day and the bathroom area was adequate. One of the best parts is that it is a 3 minute walk to the prudential building and subway line which made travelling 10x easier. From start to finish we were always greeted with a smile and furthermore, we left with our luggage thanks to the help of the hotel! I wouldn’t hesitate to stay again or recommend. Read less

Stayed at this hotel January 2020. Other than the hostel or the hotel not too far away that had "shared down the hall" bathrooms, this was one of the most inexpensive hotels in downtown Boston. As mentioned in numerous previous reviews, it's an "older" hotel with perhaps a slightly dated decor, but my room was large, with new looking furniture… Read more
Stayed at this hotel January 2020. Other than the hostel or the hotel not too far away that had "shared down the hall" bathrooms, this was one of the most inexpensive hotels in downtown Boston. As mentioned in numerous previous reviews, it's an "older" hotel with perhaps a slightly dated decor, but my room was large, with new looking furniture and fixtures. The bed had nice bedding and was comfortable. The bathroom was small and a bit dated. But everything was very clean and functional. I'd call it a solid 2.5 star hotel that is a great value. Read less

Stayed at the Midtown while at a conference in a nearby fancy hotel. The Midtown is more like a 1970s motel than a hotel with easy parking. The hotel is clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The room was large with a couch and sitting area. Could have had more electrical outlets. Quite comfortable. I will be back.
