Great location near Boston. Nice historic neighborhood (the JFK birthplace is less than a mile away). Public transportation is within easy walking distance; overnight parking is available (crucial in Boston if you have a car)! Good continental breakfast. The only negatives: the furnishings are dated; and the place feels very crowded when it's fully booked.

Friendly and comfortable, plus affordable -- a very nice combination! I use a sleep mask and earplugs whenever traveling, so I can't speak to the noise/light at night, but it was a very comfortable stay. The staff was helpful and the room was very clean. I was in one of the shared bathroom rooms, which at first seemed strange, but...

Cute, quiet, and quaint B&B in Brookline. Close to shopping, dining, and public transportation. A short 20-25 minute walk to Fenway, and a short green line trip into the heart of Boston. Staff is super friendly, and the house is in a great location. Check-in and out was quick and easy. Floors are a bit creaky but it adds to...

The B&B is lovely and quaint. My room was very nice and well furnished. I liked the hardwood floors and comfy bed. The bath was very small, but clean and the shower had great water pressure. The staff kindly allowed me to drop my bags off early and allowed me to check in a little early, which I greatly appreciated....

awesome visit to the B&B - super friendly staff and extremely accommodating. Everything was ready when we arrived, wi-fi access was quick and easy for me to be able to get some work done, and all around the inn is very comfortable.

Tired on bare-bones, basic Airbnb's? Want something without the sharp edgers on a Motel or a comfort inn? Want to be close to a neighborhood without being located on the main strip, amidst the traffic? This Purple Guest House, two blocks from Coolidge Corners, is the police to stay. It's comfortable, clean, the on-site staff is friendly and responsive. It...

The BnB was a great and convenient place to stay. The breakfast in the morning was great (delicious bagels), and there are lots of food options near by. Wifi worked well, and the staff was helpful with directions and planning.

I have stayed many nights at the Coolidge Corner Guest House, when working at a local prestigious Business School. Clean, convenient, "uber" friendly, this B&B is a gem of a find. Much like a little piece of quaint, local,European hospitality right here in our own backyard. Can't beat the rates and the quality of service. Highly recommend!

If you are in a pinch and choose not to Airbnb, Coolidge Corner is the way to go- it has rooms with a bathroom down the hall, or ensuite bathrooms for a higher fee. The space is a huge Victorian that must have been spectacular in its past. The only downside is that someone is not on the premises all...
