We loved our three days at the Samuel Sewall. The lovely Victorian house is beautifully decorated with a friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful and we really appreciated that snacks (fruit, granola bars, cookies,drinks) were made available to us 24 hours a day. The location is ideal. It's not only close to all the shopping and...

The Samuel Sewall Inn looks more like a B&B than a hotel but it features nice rooms and a great breakfast. We were in room 10 and that's one of the smallest rooms. Beware of the stairs because it's right beside your room and you will hear people using it at night and in the morning. The only problem that...

We stayed at The Samuel Sewall Inn while dropping our daughter off at Boston University for a summer program. Absolutely love the bed and breakfast the the helpful staff. The bed and breakfast is an adorable house with very fine hardwood trimming, hardwood floors and adorably decorated rooms and dining room. Samuel Sewall is very close to Coolidge Corner, which...

I was looking forward to our stay here but our ground-floor room fell a little short of expectation, with a settee not fit for human posteriors (I could feel the springs through the upholstery). The cramped breakfast room does not invite relaxing and makes a poky, cluttered first impression. (Sometimes breakfast is served across the street in the inn's more...

Website pictures make rooms and exterior appear nicer than they are but a great location near the T, Fenway, and restaurants. Our room #3 and the common area are a bit worn around the edges. Bathroom was tiny. Very small seating area for breakfast. Breakfast OK with one hot dish, pastry choices and fruit. Nothing special but certainly adequate. Nice...

I've stayed here a couple of times while in the area for business and highly recommend it. The room I've stayed in is comfortable and had more than enough space - the bed, the shower, towels, bathroom amenities are all really comfortable. The breakfasts are a real treat - there's one hot dish (blueberry ricotta pancakes, individual bread puddings, eggs...

My husband & I recently stayed at the Samuel Sewell Inn for several nights when I needed to go to Boston for medical consultations, and will likely be back each year. The staff was wonderfully accommodating (thank you Julia, Irma, Dan, & Renee), breakfasts were homemade & satisfying, and the room was comfortable. Julia's recommendation of her favorite restaurant, Lineage,...

I was in Boston for my first solo trip on business, but stayed an extra 2 days for fun... This was my first experience at a B&B and would stay at the Samuel Sewell Inn again in a heart beat..

I've stayed at both the Samuel Sewall and Betram Inns on numerous occasions while visiting Boston. Not once have I been disappointed! I LOVE the quaint antique decor and delicious hot breakfasts that are served every morning. In the winter there's even a fireplace to keep you toasty and warm. The staff are amazing, so friendly, and now know me...

“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.”
