    Location - very close to Fenway. The Chinese food is good in the restaurant.

    The breakfast was not good.

    Location to Fenway Park

    Old, dirty, smelly, broken down, out of date hotel that needs to be torn down !

  • Couple

    The only thing that was acceptable about this hotel is the location.

    Upon entrance to our room the first thing I notice is a stain running down the wall that looked like rust or some type of liquid that was gross. The back of the entertainment center was coming off and the top of the dresser was cracked in half, there were also large chunks of wood knocked out of the front of the dresser. The refrigerator did not work. The air conditioning didn't work. And there were red light bulbs in the bathroom that made you feel u were staying in the call girl special room. Heard a rustling in the air vent on two separate occasions didn't think much about it until I heard a squeak. Don't use this review for complaints...but your asking what I didn't like so I told you. I took pictures of all this.

    Right across from ball field

    Needs to be updated, smell in room

  • Couple

    I was great location for what I needed.

    There was a lot of water damage in the room. The bed was uncomfortable. The facilities are outdated.

  • Family with children

    Although stressed the Guy on reception tried to help us with checking in and any queries we had.

    Although the room was clean [OK] the whole corridoor areas and reception was very shabby and depressing. Bearing in mind how much we paid and compared to cheaper hotels during our holiday Best Western, Hampton Inn and Comfort Inn I would say that the Howard Johnson was very poor value for money. Soemone needs to get there and spruce the place up!!

  • Single
    4.6

    Nothing, the noise level was horrendous and the hotel itself was sleezy and scuzzy.

    I did not like being above a dumpster with people coming and going. I did like being near a stairwell where everytime people came to and fro the door slammed against the wall. I did like the constant noise of kids partying outside. I did not like the unadjustable temperture and the cigarette burns in the rug or the smell of chemicals to cover up the malodorus smell. I did like the fact I did not sleep and left at 5:00am in the morning just to get away from the place.

    The Chinese restaurant inside.

    My stay at the hotel was not best. The staff was not friendly on the telephone and rooms was disgusting... The beds was not serviceable and the mattress was old.

  • Older travelers
    4.6

    This is an old, run-down hotel and the only thing it has going for it is the location - next to Fenway Park. There is no elevator and NO amenities that you might expect when paying this kind of rate. We cancelled the stay we had booked for the week after our cruise. We did not appreciate the lady behing the desk talking on a private phone conversation while trying to check us out.

  • Single
    5.0

    The front desk personel were very nice and warm welcoming.

    The accommadations were out dated and the restaurant was horrible. The prices for the rooms were not worth what I was charged. I personally think that if it weren't for the location it should be a lot less.

  • Couple
    7.0

    It is very close to Fenway Park which was the reason for our stay.

    There was a strong odor in hallway like they tried to cover up other smells. Door hard to close so it was very loud to close. wooden doors in bathroom and to the adjoining room were in bad shape and cracked at bottom. They just looked bad and made the room feel dirty. For the next question if I would recommend HJ to others I would say yes if Fenway Park was their destination

  • Older travelers
    4.6

    The location is the only redeeming factor. The room was beat up. The bathroom door should have been replaced. There was a temporary water feed to the toilet. The tv did not receive the video feed from tbs only the audio so we couldn't watch the baseball playoffs.

    Listed above The Commonwealth Hotel, 3 blocks away, was $233/night and was beautiful.

    Convenience

    I was in room 112 for one night. I got bit about 20 times from bed bugs on my face, arms, hand, neck and leg. very uncomfortable. I didn't realize how many places I got bit in. Some bites developed into itchy swollen lumps days after. Some bites developed instantly the next morning. I am very disappointed and upset. Would not recommend or go back there again.

  • Family with children
    3.2

    Not to much : Room has Refrigetor, coffee maker and microwave.

    We did not like anything, It is located very far from transportation, is dirty, poor conditions in rooms, walls, doors, bathrroms are riped, and the windows, the courtains are simple disagreeable. Its is VERY EXPENSIVE FOR THAT POOR HOTEL

  • Family with children
    10.0

    We were visiting BU and this hotel was very close by. It was also adjacent to the Green Monster, which was very cool! It was comfy and cozy, and economical for being in Boston.

    The window in our room was in need of caulking and other repairs, but it was not very noticeable behind the draperies.
