      Good price/quality. Bath room was fine and clean and well lighted.

      Too strong smell of air freshener in room.The room was quite poorly lighted.

      Great location for visiting BU campus and proximity to the T line. Really appreciate the full breakfast and free internet. Near Whole Foods Grocery store for stocking up on supplies for the fridge or microwave use.

      The heating unit was noisy and difficult to control the temperature comfortably.

      The room was spacious and comfortable. The staff at reception were all very helpful. It was my first visit to Boston and they gave me information about getting around the city and made me feel welcome. I liked the facility for getting tea or coffee at any time.

      The service was beyond amazing. When I fist showed up to check in there was an issue with my credit card and the man at the desk (Kieth) did everything he could imagine to help me.

      The internet connection was a little lack (I could not connect wirelessly from my room) but it was hardly an issue.

    • Single

      The room was nice and clean. The hotel did not have any special facilities, but was good enough for a solo traveller doing business in the city. Fairly good breakfast.

      I had to leave the main room of the hotel (where are the reception and the breakfast) to reach my room. This is nice in a summer/spring weather but could be a problem in the winter or during rainy days.

      Very friendly staff especially at the front desk. Very good location. Good facilities, easy parking.

      Extremely dirty carpet. My young daughter was crawling in the room for 5 minutes and her clothes because black from the dirt. Change carpet!!! Slow Internet connection.

    • Single

      The staff were so helpful throughout my stay. They recomended great tourist attractions and really helped me out on my departure getting me from the hotel to the bus terminal.

    • Group of friends

      Extremely easy access to public transportation to anywhere in the city. Breakfast was diversified menu. Staff was very accommodating. Hotel needs some revamping. Carpets are extremely dirty, yet everything else is clean. They are in the process of replacing with flooring in dining area but need to change/remove carpeting in the rooms. Hopefully that will be there next step. I would stay again.

      Carpeting in the rooms. Very dirty.

    • Couple
      9.2

      Very good selection for breakfast and location relatively near the metro. There's a 7-11, laundromat and gas station nearby so it is quite convenient for people driving into Boston and parking their car at the hotel.

      Breakfast area is a little bit crowded and it'll be good to have some outdoor seats along the corridor or provide lunchboxes for guests so that they can bring the food back to the room. This should ease the crowds in the morning.

      During 2002-2006 we stayed at this hotel many times while our daughter was attending Boston University. It was comfortable, close to our events, and easy access to the "T" and the rest of Boston. We recently returned to Boston for a visit after being away for about 5 years. We decided to try the Terrace Inn again, and I immediately felt "at home"! The improvements you have made were noticed and appreciated, but the hospitality and not-so-big-city feeling were still definitely there. Thank you for providing us a comfortable and accessible place to stay while visiting Boston. We will return!!
