The only drawback to the hotel is that it is described as being "minutes" from the freedom trail. It's actually several miles to the south of Boston and you can't walk there from the hotel. To this end, the hotel, which is very affordable - offers several amenities - such as free shuttle service to the airport and to the subway. Also, the hotel charges you a resort fee of a few dollars a day. The rooms are clean and pleasant (free WiFi), and there are restaurants and a pub nearby. For those on a tight budget, it's not a bad place to be - and it is much nicer than a youth hostel. The staff, especially, are quite pleasant. But if you want to be downtown and have a leisurely walk or cheap taxi back to your hotel, this isn't the place for you.
