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 :) :)
I wasn't too impressed to be honest.
Yes, it's relatively cheap. But not by any means the cheapest around.
And it was dirty. I didn't want to touch anything!
Maybe I'd been spoilt as, the previous few nights had been in someone's lovely home, for half the price of Rex's room.
But I needed another night at very short notice, and this was available and affordable.
If all you want is a bed, and convenience, and aren't too bothered about your surroundings, than this has all that. But it felt overpriced for what it was.
It was a great stay at Boston.Very comfortable and cosy place to live in.
The good: bed was comfortable, manager was nice, the shower was hot, close to the subway station, close to the ocean beach, quiet.
The bad: rundown, rundown, rundown, bathroom dirty, shared bathroom with 6 people, noisy, no place to hang up any clothes, no place to hang the towels to dry ( that you brought yourself), no waste basket to be found in room or bathroom, old linens, noooooo frills.
DON'T GO THERE FOR YOUR HONEYMOON!!!
The location was great, literally a 2 minute walk to the "T" (metro rail in Boston). The beach is also not far away, only 5 minutes. Some of the comments indicated that the neighborhood was not great. My impression of the area was that it was quite safe enough, especially in the day light or early evenings and the fact that house is only a quick walk to the "T". The only issue that gave us pause was the general lack of cleanliness of the apartment. We felt better when we met the manager who lives there. He was great, and made us feel very much at home. Personally we would be happy to come back again if the place was maintained at a higher level of cleanliness.
Rex has been an excellent and very accommodating host. I'm a student and needed temporary housing and Rex came through for me when others did not. The place is nice and clean, the beach it's near is really cool.
I'd definitely stay here again and would recommend it to friends.
Right across from Revere Beach T stop, easy access to T blue line, airport, beach and with decent food options and liquor store close by. A place to crash for a night or two. Bathroom could do better with a deep cleaning. A very simple and affordable option for Boston, specially during the summer days.
Value for money stay, great proximity to the metro station that leads to Logan Airport, good for fuss-free travellers. The host, Rex, was very accomodating when I had to cancel one of the rooms when there were some changes in the travel plans and agreed to give us a refund as well. No problems with checking in and out. However, we had some problems with the bathroom, and the neighbourhood is not exactly the safest at night! It's right by the beach, so great for beach lovers like us!
