My family and I stayed here for six nights during the Boston Marathon. While the location was far away from the city, it helped keep the costs reasonable, and the Franklin Commuter Line (part of the MBTA) was just a short 7 minute leisurely walk from the hotel--though there is NO sidewalk--you walk on the busy road. Also, the Legacy Place shopping area next to the hotel was great for restaurants and Whole Foods.
Now to the hotel. The staff was mostly helpful and kind. Especially Kathy! She's in charge of the breakfasts there, and it seemed we saw her every time we came to and from the hotel. She even made us a plate of chocolate chip cookies at 8:30 one night! She's an incredible hard worker, and very friendly. She even invited our girls to celebrate her daughter's birthday there at the hotel one night. Very sweet!
We stayed in a suite that had two bedrooms so we could share with my in-laws. Our suite happened to be the handicap suite, which if I was handicapped, I would've been pissed. The kitchen had items so high up in the cupboard, that at over 6 feet tall, I had a hard time reaching and getting things down. But that's beside the point.
We were in 106, right on the corner of two hallways. Almost every night, we would start to smell cigarette smoke in the room. This is a non-smoking hotel, by the way. There was never anyone outside the side door smoking in the parking lot, so I knew it was coming from the room above us, probably someone locked in the bathroom with their fan on. I called the front desk the first two nights, and the night man was kind enough to spray our room with a deodorizer the first night. However, he must not have been able to get the person upstairs, because the smoking continued. We had to close our bathroom door and leave the fan on. How's that for peaceful sleep? Not the way I wanted to start my vacation, especially as a health conscious marathoner getting ready to run the biggest race of my life. I gave up on the third night. And believe it or not, this is not the first time I've had this issue at a Residence Inn.
Kathy had told us that there were several families staying in the hotel due to their homes being flooded from the large amount of melting snow from the winter. The insurance companies were housing them there while repairs were being done to their homes. While I'd hate to be in that situation, it still doesn't give them the right to break the rules and smoke in a non-smoking hotel. Period. Go outside and ruin your own health--not mine.
In addition to that, the beds were not comfortable. My wife and I were longing for our mattress at home.
Most of the hotel was clean, but there were some serious dirt smudges on our bathroom door when we arrived, and some dark brown goo low on the wall. The tile grout in the bathroom needed a serious cleaning too.
But hey-- free wi-fi!
The pool was fun for the girls, but my wife and I were longing for a hot tub.
Breakfast was OK--nothing amazing, but certainly not horrible. Being complimentary, it's what I expected it to be. Typical hot foods like waffles, eggs, sausages. The potato wedges were really good with salsa. I'd like to see a variety of fresh fruits, not just bunches of green bananas.
Another huge strike against the hotel was our reservation. I reserved this place in July of 2014. I originally reserved two suites next to each other, so that my large extended family could all be together. I got a call about a month out from our stay, saying they were unable to accommodate our reservation. What?! Why bother having a reservation if you can't guarantee it? It ended up that we got one suite and one regular room, which weren't even right next to each other. And to top it off, they were going to try and charge me the suite rate for the single room until I brought up this little reservation fiasco. I could have made a huge ordeal about it, but I didn't have the energy--again, trying to focus on the marathon and having fun with the family.
So while the staff was nice, and Kathy was amazing, it just wasn't enough to leave me with anything nice to say. I certainly would look for another hotel if I were stuck in the area.

Although the Residence Inn chain is designed for people staying for a while, I love staying at them even if its overnight because you get the kitchen, living room and bedroom for the same price of just a room. they also always have a full coffee maker (ok a lot coffee is important to me) and a free bag of popcorn. You also get a great free breakfast - hot and cold, tons of choices. This hotel was ideal for me as its right on a commuter rail line (and in full disclosure, I'm from long island and have commuted on the LIRR for 25 years, so from logan airport I took the silver line bus to south street, then the train from south street to dedham, then the next morning took the train into Boston). The staff was very friendly and even had Cheese and Crackers that evening. Room was clean, the only knock I have is that the fan for the heat was really loud, really nothing you can do about it as I didn't see a lower setting for it.

Although I found the location and staff to be great at this Residence Inn, it needs a serious renovation. I found the rooms to be quite worn and the last room I stayed in smelt like the housekeeper had smoked in it. The tubs in the bathrooms are quite stained and in need of some serious bleach. I think the next time I'm in the area I'll be stayed elsewhere.
