This was our second stay at the Samuel Sewell Inn. In fact, we even had the same room as on our first visit. The room was beautifully decorated. Bed was comfortable, and the fireplace, though we did not use it, was all set to be started. Nightly turned down service and chocolate was very nice! The location is close to... More

We stayed here for 4 nights. The location is perfect for easy access to the 'T' and a quick trip into the city. The surrounding neighborhood has a good variety of restaurants within walking distance. The Inn has a lot of charm. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. The daily breakfast was delicious, and the complimentary snacks and coffee... More

We stayed in Samuel Sewall Inn for three nights and it was certainly a great experience. The rooms are very nicely put together in a way that evokes pleasant childhood memories. The staff is also quite helpful. But the star of the show is certainly the breakfast - the selection is varies every day and it is carefully curated. By... More

Been to Beantown many times before and stayed in nice big traditional hotels. This time we had a large group of family in town for a graduation. We decided to try the Inn so we could stay together and have a homey feeling. Samuel Sewall delivered. No frills (meaning no hotel amenities such as pool, gym, room service, bar, etc.)... More

Stayed here for 5 nights and would not stay anywhere else if we go back to Boston! Staff were friendly and couldn't do enough to help giving us lots of helpful tourist advice.

This is a really darn comfortable inn. The furniture is quirky-quaint - but the place is quiet, the staff are friendly, the room is as clean and as organized as a five star hotel. If I want to be churlish my room didn't have a desk. Other rooms do and if this matters to you ask when you book. But... More

This B&B made a recent stay in Boston extremely good. The room (after changing to a larger one) was just large enough to spend a little time in doing work; the bathroom simple. A wonderful plus was a real breakfast that changed daily that had great variety. In addition the staff of the Inn was consistently helpful. There were some... More

“While we had the same room for two different stays, we did see some of the other rooms which were also very nice. We had a basic queen size room which was perfect for my husband and myself.”

“Room 4, a corner room on the ground floor, is very nice and has a window air-conditioning unit and a floor fan that were perfect for keeping the room cool. There is a working fireplace for winter that I'm sure would create a very cozy atmosphere. This standard room worked well as a single; it might be a bit small for a double as there is no closet and I used convenient hooks on the wall with hangers for my clothes. I saw the other three rooms on the ground floor and they are all quite a bit bigger.”
