Cozy hotel in a good location

Posted Mar 14, 2017
The hotel was in a nice spot near Chinatown so there was always good food around within walking distance. Everything was good although I had to move the bed to get to an outlet and the hot water was never actually hot in the shower.

Good value for the price.

Posted Feb 9, 2017
Pros: Location. Price.
Cons: Hot water supply, although this may have been an anomaly.
Location: Within three or so blocks of Boston Common and subways.
The appearance of this hotel is underwhelming but, while basic, it is comfortable, well located, and welcoming. The free breakfast is a bonus. The bed was comfortable and the temperature of the room easy to adjust. It was very clean. The one quibble I had was that, for some reason, the hot water cut off before I had finished my shower. I would certainly stay here again and the price was very reasonable for Boston.

Excellent Location

Posted Jan 31, 2017
Pros: Location was key - walking distance subway, as well as to my morning meetings in Financial district. Low cost also great.
Cons: Bed quality wan't great, but I did sleep just fine.
Location: Theatre area, Newbury shopping, Boston Common, Downtown Crossing all walking distance.
Needed a simple hotel stay for one night while on business. Since I typically am only going to be in a hotel room to sleep and do a bit of work, I don't need much in terms of luxury nor cost. Room was small but adequate, and late at night did some work down in the lobby before meetings the next morning. Location excellent - theatre area, 5 min walk from subway, financial district, Downtown Crossing area, etc.

Good hotel

Posted Jan 9, 2017
very close to Boston downtown. Clean and they have nice breakfast. the only "bad" thing was that our shower ( room 304) wasn't too hot, the what're would get warm but not hot. Overall I would go back to that hotel m!

Hi Jess, We agree that we have a location that can't be beat, and is there a better smell to wake up to then the smell of waffles from breakfast? Thank you for coming to Found Boston Common. We look forward to seeing you again. Cheers Edward

Good value

Posted Dec 25, 2016
Room had all the basics. The continental breakfast was above average. The tub drain did not work very well. Overall, a good value.

Thank you David for the feedback. I'll look in to the tub drain that you mentioned and work to make sure it doesn't happen again! We're glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again soon.

Need to raise the friendliness of the front desk. Seemed more like a convenience store cashier than the person that is the first to greet you.

Decent hotel close to all the attractions

Posted Dec 24, 2016
Not amazing but it's probably the best price-quality compromise in the area. Small room but comfortable. Right in Boston Common and close to many of the attractions. I would stay there again.

We had a non-smoking room and the whole night cigarette smoke was blowing in through the air conditioner and it was very unpleasant and bothered us the majority of the night. The room itself was clean and comfortable but there was a black hair in the shower which was kinda of scary seeing in a hotel room's bathroom that you would expect to be cleaned thoroughly. Other than that It was a fine stay and a convenient location.

Thank you Martha for the review. I can understand how frustrating that would be to have smoke coming in from the outside. I'll definitely be looking for ways that we can avoid that for the future. Further, I'll work with my housekeeping team to make sure your shower issue doesn't repeat. Thank you again!
