The place was a dump super 8 should be ashamed to have there name on that building. Wyndham should also be ashamed. The room had broken window and needed a severe update. People were hanging around inside and outside that were pretty shaky. Front desk personnel weren’t very polite about information on the transportation to city of Boston.

I don't think they cleaned bathroom from the previous guest. The walls had numerous spots that had not been totally repaired. The pillows were tiny.

Try to find something else

This hotel is very run down and needs serious renovation. The paint is peeling everywhere. The carpet doesn’t even meet the wall in some areas and so they caulked in those spots. It is pretty far from downtown. They do have a bus stop right in front of them. You can ride the bus for about 20 minutes to get to the subway system and then another 20 minutes from there. You will pay about 20 dollars for Uber or Lyft each way. It is worth it to pay more to stay downtown. The only place to eat that is close enough to walk to is Dominoes. I will say the bed is comfortable and that was about the only positive for this place.

Thank you for your feedback. We sincerely appreciate your comments. We are about 7 miles from downtown Boston. Domino's is next door but there are many other places just a short 5 minute walk to Watertown Square. We are an older property so we cannot compare to the downtown hotels but our prices reflect this. Once again we thank you for your feedback.

Pros: Complimentary Breakfast buffet was better than expected. Beds were comfortable. Corner room was spacious. Price was good.
Cons: No fan in the bathroom - got very steamy. Overall decor was very dated.
Location: Conveniently located to colleges in Boston
In town for 2 days (one night) for some college visits. Was looking for an affordable place which was conveniently located. Super 8 was less than 5 miles west of BU, Northeastern and the Colleges of the Fenway. It's nothing fancy - fine for a short stay - but was comfortable & clean!

Horrible, RUN AWAY

If this is travelocity's idea of even a hotel they are horribly wrong. Terrible front desk people (women on her cell phone while the hotel phone rang and people were waiting for service, then acted like she was inconvenienced) door to the room had at least a half inch wiggle room to be opened. Curtains were screwed into a piece of wood nailed into the wall. Shampoo that was left for us was half empty, bathroom door didn't even come close to shutting. Only good thing was the easy access to the airport. One star or mention of a star is way too nice for this place.
