Braintree is about 15 miles south of Logan airport on the "South Shore." The pros re location: Braintree MBTA subway station connects to stations into and all over metro Boston, Short (but congested) drive from downtown Boston, easy access to interstates/Rte. 128, ready access to Cape Cod, adjacent Blue Hills Reservation (6,000-acre state park for bbq, hiking, swimming, horse riding skiing in season etc.), short distance to South Shore Plaza (largest mall in New England), and, if flying in, catch Logan Express-Braintree and use Uber/Lyft/taxi to Suites and/or rent an Enterprise or other car in Braintree to avoid rip-off for toll responder and airport fees.That said, there are other hotels on Wood Rd. that offer competitive rates. Cons: it's about trade-offs versus other hotels. The rates are dear, as they are generally in Boston and vicinity, but at the lower but not low price end. For a 7-day stay we were told at check-in that there is no daily housekeeping, that one can change towels out by bringing and exchanging in the lobby. We found the temperature control system (wall-mounted) to result in obnoxious and loud blasts, even at low fan setting, with frequent adjustments needed during the night. There was a continuous systemic machine humming/ vibration felt and heard in second floor suite, easily ignored during the day but disconcerting during the night. We had few good night sleeps. Not a problem with the bed though. We lived through it. The pros: well supplied with fridge microwave, cooktop, cooking equipment, utensils, glass and plates, initial starter supplies of coffee & tea. With a little external shopping for breakfast , lunch and snacks, drinks, fruit, etc. one can "save" $s. There is an onsite "honors" cafe to purchase food and drink. Coffee is free. A small workout area adjoins it. Also, free washer/dryers (laundry powder available for purchase.) In my younger days with kids this would be a good choice economically. However, there is no lounge and no community room so be prepared to head out with the kids. But, as a senior couple, we'll go with an adjacent hotel (we have been pleased in the past with Hampton Inn next door.)

It was my stay at in Boston, Very clean, calm place to stay, Staff were quite good. Rooms was quite good with basic kitchen utensils. My only concerns is its bit far from Bus stop and during rainy or winter season, one has walk quite a distance to reach hotel from Bus stop. If you have Car its best place to stay. Overall had pleasant stay at Boston.

Room Tip: Very quiet place if one is looking for holiday.

The rooms are clean and comfortable. The mattress was great! I want one like it at home. The rooms have DVD players and they offer movies in the lobby. Ideal for folks who hate cable. The exercise room was great too. The smells in the hallway can be a bit gross at times. The lobby could use a re design as it's hard to squeeze past people checking in an so forth.

Comfortable beds & pillows, clean room and kitchen utensils and friendly staff. My only suggestion is though I am not handicapped, to put in handicapped bars in the bathtub (I am not as young as I used to be)

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are the most quiet.

Unbelievably, there was a full kitchen in our room! Layout is similar to a NYC studio - everything all in one room plus a bathroom. Nothing luxurious, but pretty new, everything worked. We were satisfied. The walls are quite thin, so noise could be a problem, but on our particular Saturday night everyone settled down and we had a good night. The heat blows like mad even on low fan, which took some getting used to. No breakfast included.
