“My First Choice!”
Reviewed 26 March 2012

Just enjoyed yet another fine stay at this lovely inn. The rooms are always clean and quite comfortable. Sadly, Ronda was not there to greet us as we have grown so accustomed to. Always made me feel at home during my stays. Nonetheless - it is a great place and I have recommended it to several friends.

We were forturnate to find this wonderful and beautiful Inn. Just three blocks from Coolidge Corner & the "C" line on the T. John and Barbara were fantastic host and the cleanliness of the Inn was so nice. Our room was great and very quite and comfortable. They have a modern kitchen at your disposal. We have stay at other locations in Brookline at B&B's and hotels, but nothing compares with The Longwood Inn. They also have FREE on site parking for their guest and a washing machine and dyer. We have found a home away from home In Brookline. We are looking forward to our next visit back at the Inn. James and Sheila Sowder

Beautiful large room, very clean, newly finished bath, but... because we booked at the last minute we got a room right off the lobby on the first floor and facing the street. It was a bit noisy and the street lights were annoying. A room in the back or off the lobby would have been better. We had issues with the mattress, it should be replaced. (rm 11). An in room hairdryer and coffee maker would have been welcome. Having parking behind building was a plus. Good location. All in all would give them a try again, hopefully they will do a mattress upgrade.

Room Tip: Pick a room in the back away from the street

If a guest is not happy with a room at the Longwood Inn we do our best to accomodate them. I do not know what day or days this guest stayed so I cannot say what options were available at the time.

Whether or not a street is too noisy or bright depends partly on what a person is used to. Longwood Ave. is not a major road going in and out of Boston but there is a fair amount of traffic going back and forth to the Longwood Medical Center at the other end of the street, mostly during rush hours. At night it tends to quiet down a lot. The windows have blinds which should block out most of the light from the street, but no blind is completely light proof. We would have been more than willing to switch the guest to a room facing away from the street if they had mentioned it to us and one were available.

The mattresses are top of the line pillow top mattresses, less than a year old. Many people find them very comfortable. For others they feel too soft, which is something we did not realize until after they were purchased. Not all of the rooms have the pillow top mattresses and, again, we would have given them a room with regular mattresses if available.

We do not keep hairdryers in the rooms because they have a tendency to disappear. We do have them available on request.

Because of local fire codes, we are not allowed to have coffee makers, irons or hotplates in any of the rooms as they are considered to be a fire hazard. We do have a fully equipped kitchen for the use of all guests here. It has a coffee maker in it and we keep a supply coffee for guests. (We also have a laundry room with a built in ironing board and iron).

I appreciate the comment about the room and bath. Over the last 7 - 8 years the owner has been doing some major renovations to upgrade the inn to make it a more pleasant experience for people. It is good to see that all this effort has not been wasted.

I hope this person will consider staying at the Longwood Inn in the future.

I stayed here on a recent trip to Boston. We wanted to be near Fenway and Longwood was perfect. It was about a 25 minute walk but on a great summer day that wasn't a problem. The neighborhood was gorgeus and the staff couldn't have been friendlier. We had one of the rooms off the back so we didn't have to go into the main house if we didn't want to and we were able to park directly outside of our room.

I was very disappointed to here that Ronda is not working her old hours at the Inn. I recently made a new reservation to stay at the Inn this coming Spring largely due to the fact that Ronda was so kind and accommodating to us in the past. The Inn is a very comfortable location, but the true heart of the Inn are the friendly people who greet you on arrival (Ronda).
