My stay at OasisPosted Nov 24, 2013
Pros: Cleanliness and the helpful assistance of the staff in providing information and travel directions for the neighborhood,which has many winding streets
I spoke at the NCTE conference in Boston. I made last minute arrangements at Oasis. The location was ideal for its proximity to the conference center. The neighborhood was reminiscent of the old Greenwich Village. I had a very serene evening and a restful sleep.

Lovely Boston hotel alternativePosted Nov 7, 2013
Pros: Location, cost, basic amenities, independently owned
Cons: Rooms could really use a remodel and breakfast was not impressive
Location: It's just off Mass Ave, an easy walk to the action on Boylston and Newbury, Fenway Park, Northeastern University, and it's basically next to Berklee.
The Oasis Guest House is a really great alternative to the standard mega hotel chain. I was on my own (single young woman) in Boston for a job interview and paying for the trip myself so I needed something affordable and safe, and in a convenient location. The Oasis fit the bill, for sure. It's neither luxurious nor modern, but my room (on the 3rd floor of their second building which is at 14 Edgerly St) was quiet, comfortable, and just spacious enough. The important amenities like free and fast wifi, a hairdryer, and a super basic breakfast, are included.

cold!Posted Nov 6, 2013
The room was very cold. it was close to freezing outside but there was no heating in the room. i had to request extra blankets and a room heater at midnight because i couldn't sleep from the cold. The night staff was rude to me on the phone when i complained about the cold. During breakfast in the morning i met other guest who also complained about the cold. i will never go back there!

Great B&BPosted Oct 23, 2013
Pros: It was located within easy walking distance to the subway, restaurants and sights. The owners were always available to answer any questions.
Location: Very close to the shopping district as well as restaurants. Also an easy walk to Boston Common.
We really enjoyed our stay at the B&B. It was a great place to stay while visiting the sights of Boston.

Great location close 2 all attractions & transportPosted Sep 20, 2013
Pros: Location is perfect, friendly staff were very helpful and knowledgeable.
Cons: Loved my stay here and happy to recommend. When I come back to Boston I will be staying here again.
Location: Walking distance to all major attractions inc cambridge, the freedom trail. boston common and gardens, cheers, newberry st, fenway park.
Staff were extremely helpful, I had left my medication at last hotel in NY they assisted me to contact the hotel to organise for it to be couriered to Boston. The brownstone building is very beautiful the room is adequate. air conditioning a little cool but did not worry us. Location is perfect as is the town.

Convenient for walking or catching the TPosted Sep 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
We walked everywhere & then when we got blisters we were able to conveniently catch the T. It was close to where we needed to be & the price was great for Boston.

Great little inn, but missing some basic amenitiesPosted Sep 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
My only complaints are that there weren't coffee makers in the bedrooms and that you couldn't control the temperature from your room. The place is cute, decently decorated and the staff was very nice. It is in a great location with less than a five minute walk to the Hynes T stop. There were plenty of restaurants and coffee shops within 2-3 minutes walking distance and very close to Newbury street. It was the cheapest hotel I found for the weekend I needed to stay there and I'm glad I didn't spend more on a luxury place with amenities that I wouldn't use. The staff was really helpful. They printed directions for me that I emailed to them, and when I lost my cell phone the night clerk let me use hers to call it. All in all, I would highly recommend.

Will be backPosted Aug 31, 2013 on Hotels.com
Booked a room for two nights to drop my kid off at college. Everyone was pleasant. Breakfast was a nice perk and the location was extremely convenient for us. Really close to the Northeastern campus and a 10 min walk to Copley Square. A couple of minutes from the T station as well.

Pleasant surprisePosted Aug 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
I did not think shared bathrooms would work for someone who is 68, but the Oasis was truly that and there were enough clean available bathrooms at all times to make this an efficient and not too costly alternative in a great neighborhood of Boston, near a Whole Foods and the MFA.
