Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Leslie was a great host! We really enjoyed our stay at her home. The bedroom is great with lot of space and we had a full access to her house. We also got a free parking lot which is nice because parking are expensive in the area. The neighborhood is quiet and the T station is only 10min by walk. She provided us lot of good advice concerning Boston and its area. Thank you very much again :)

  • Leslie was a welcoming host who made my three day stay very pleasant. She answered questions I had including what was available in the neighborhood as well as public transportation to
    Boston. There turned out to be a major snowstorm but the parking place in the back was plowed as was the driveway. The house is two minutes from Rt. 9, a major road to Boston which is only 15-20 minutes away. And, importantly, the bedroom is large and comfortable.

  • My time at this b&b was perfect for my needs. I had access to the T to get to my destinations with no more than a 15 min. walk. The host had everything I needed available and provided me with some coffee and a light breakfast the next morning. If ever I have the need to be in the area again, I will definitely stay at Subway to Boston! It was ideal.
