I can't say enough good things about my experience at the Longwood Inn. My girlfriend and I were in town for the Yankees/Red Sox game (go Sox!). This place was only a 3/4 mile walk to the stadium. It's in a nice neighborhood and you don't walk through any sketchy parts. It's close, but just far enough away that you're not in the game congestion. The on-site parking is free, easy, and sufficient. There is a nice little family park with baseball fields just behind the inn. The kitchen and fridge are communal, which is actually really nice. It feels very homey. This would especially be a great place for couples or families with young children. Our room had a queen bed with a futon we could have used if we had little ones. There is a Trader Joe's in walking distance, if you want to keep the food costs down while still eating healthy, and also lots of shops and restaurants close by. We kept saying that we "found our place in Boston." You can bet that we will be staying here for all future Fenway pilgrimages.
