Good location, okay hotel

Posted Apr 17, 2014
Pros: Great location, good price
Cons: The layout is weird and made bringing bags to our room a little difficult. It's not a huge deal but does make a difference if you have a big bag.
Location: 1 block from the T, mall nearby with food and shops, clean neighborhood and nice to walk around in.
I wouldn't say this is the best hotel I've been to, but it's also not the worst. For the price and location, I was pleased with the Midtown Hotel. However, the layout is pretty weird (you have to walk up a flight of stairs to reach the elevator?). The staff was friendly overall, and the guy who helped with our bags was wonderful and helped us get a shuttle to the airport. The location makes this hotel worth it, but if you're looking for a classy hotel with lot of amenities this place isn't for you.

Good location, overpriced for what you get

I just visited Boston for 4 nights with friends and I never write reviews on hotels. I understand Boston is pricier than other cities and that the location of this hotel is wonderful, but this hotel was still a rip off. Pros: location, large room, gave enough towels and toiletries, staff is somewhat nice (not via phone at night), in-room safe. Cons: staff not overly helpful, uncomfortable beds and pillows, smelly due to old carpets and paint, dated, thin walls so could hear neighbours through walls and adjoining door playing video games all night!!!, NO FREE WiFi!!!, got ripped off by taxi that concierge arranged to take us back to airport!!! For a city that has WiFi almost everywhere and for the cost of this hotel, it is ridiculous to charge patrons for WiFi too, especially when the hotel is obviously not using its profits for maintenance of the building. Furthermore, we were made by the concierge to stay in the hotel lobby rather than stand outside so that we didn't pick up a taxi to the airport on our own, but rather wait for the taxi that he called that ended up charging us $60 since it didn't have a meter, when it should have only cost us $35-40 as traffic was good. Resulted in a final bad way to end the otherwise nice trip. Great city, but don't stay here if you can avoid it.

Oven-temp room countered anything worthwhile.

Posted Mar 27, 2014
Pros: Great location. Staff was friendly and helpful.
Cons: Room temperature control. Also, learned upon departure that there was a side door to the hotel that could be easily accessed from a busy road.
Hotel is in a great location, price is unbelievably cheap for downtown Boston and room size was pretty good. We could have gotten over the fact that the room was a bit worn and soaps were skimpy if it weren't for the fact that the room temperature was WAY TOO HIGH!!! Couldn't sleep first night so called front desk he morning to have engineer come fix temp. Came back to a cooler room only to discover that their solution was to open the one window in the room. Eventually, that one window wasn't cutting it. We called front desk again and they sent a fan. Fortunately, the fan and the open window worked. No sense in changing rooms as all rooms were overcooked and unfixable.

Midtown MOTEL

Posted Mar 27, 2014
This is really a Motel. While the accommodations were clean, everything is old and dated. I would never recommend to take a significant other here. No very classy.
