Boston house and hotel is very expensive, so please don't expect condition like hotel with this price. But we provide all the basic living condition and have kitchen available. If you look for your honey moon stay, please keep this place away :) :)
This is a very convenient place to stay if you are looking to stay somewhere close to the airport with easy access to Boston. As other reviewers have said it is very basic, do not expect hotel standards, and probably best to stay for one to two nights. The bedroom was clean, if not very true to picture. The bathroom however was not as nice, the ceiling was very damp and did not seem very clean to me. It is very easy to find from the Revere Beach stop - literally a 30 second walk away and is very close to the beach itself which is lovely. Very easy to get to the airport and you can get into central Boston within half an hour easily. The bedroom door locked, even if it was a bit stiff and difficult and the wifi was good and the password was easy to locate. I never met Rex but he was was easy to get hold of and responded to any concerns I had promptly. He also allowed me to keep my room a little longer so I could store my luggage in there before my evening flight which I really appreciated.
The thing that concerned me most (and hopefully this was only an isolated incident) was that upon my arrival into the building I was aware of a very strong smell of gas. When I entered the kitchen I saw that someone had left the gas on on the stove and the whole place smelled strongly of it. As there was no evidence of anyone else being in at all, I had to switch the gas off and open all windows to ventilate the place and get the smell out which took well over an hour.
We did not meet Rex, only his friend in charge of the sublet. The place was fine, just the same as described, and close to the T station. Thanks!
Rex's place was just perfect. It's a great location close to the T and beach, the room is comfortable, and Rex and the apartment manager are very friendly and accommodating. I would happily stay there again.
It's a dilapidated room with a very bad 'customer service'. Rex was not to be found anywhere and getting the password for the WiFi was a nightmare. Only after I had requested another person living next room was I able to get the password. It is less than 100 steps away from Revere Beach station, and the beach itself is about 200 steps away but the room condition needs to improve massively.
