For the price, this hotel can't be beat. The location is cute, quiet, and close to bus stops that will take you downtown. The rooms were ok- beds were comfy, lots of storage space. You get full access to the YMCA during your stay, which was awesome. The room wasn't vacuumed very well and the outlets were all very old/pretty loose. The elevators were also very slow and pretty much taken-over by hotel staff in the morning.
I liked the location in the Naval Yard, and to get downtown Boston it is only about a mile walk across a pedestrian-friendly bridge, and an Uber from downtown is only about $7. Compared to the cost of other downtown hotels, being around $400 per night, the Constitution Inn was the best I could find for not wanting to pay that much and for a close proximity. I would not recommend this hotel if staying longer than a few days, or if you are looking for something with ambiance. Best if traveling alone, too. Based on the rooms (cement brick walls, etc...) it looks like the facility used to be some sort of public housing. The area around it is charming. Again, for the price and being so close to downtown, I think it was a decent stay.
They were clean enough. It was a place to sleep. We'd gotten a deal on kayak but I saw you could stay there for cheaper on Groupon. Needs to be updated. No attention to detail. Showerhead was broken off wall and they didn't care to fix it. They'd painted the room but painted around furniture and you could see lines. Had "do not disturb" on door but cleaning ladies came in anyway.
Close to attractions and the Charlestown Navy Yard; inexpensive for a city hotel Room was dormitory-like. Not bad, but very basic.
Nice room. Nothing fancy, but plenty of mirrors and outlets, and not freezing cold when you walk in. Was not expecting a kitchen, but that was an unexpected perk. I like they provided conditioner along with other soaps. Comfortable beds with nice pillows. Staff generally accommodating. Couldn't figure out how to make it colder at night. Loud vacuuming in the hall at 9 am even though I wasn't going to wake up until 10 (check out is at 11). If they're going to have a kitchen, they should include a few basics like plates and cutlery and maybe a pot and pan. Fridge was a little loud. Unhelpful directions to Tedeschi.
The venue was clean and the room I had fairly large and well presented. The bathroom was clean and reasonably sized. The street outside was quiet. Wifi connectivity was good, and free. There is a cafe across the street that is reasonably priced for breakfast I would describe the front desk service as functional rather then friendly. Little choice of food in the hotel apart from vending machine.
It was located right where we wanted to be and there is a YMCA in the same building. So access to a nice exercise facility and walking distance to the Constitution ship yard and the docks on the water front in Charelstown, MA. The bathroom was very dirty. Hairs from previous guests were everywhere. The comforters on the beds were stained. We were only given two bath towels and when we called for more we had to go down to the front desk to get them.
Room was very warm. Thermostat adjustments did not work to alleviate
It is not a four starts hotel, but it has all its facilities and more to offer. Friendly, very well situated. It was a pleasant surprise. It has all the sport facilities you might need. You can walk or run by the water. It is close to downtown Boston. The Freedom Trail starts a block from there. I recommend the Constitution Inn.
NOTHING IF I COULD GIVE THIS PLACE A NEGATIVE 10 I WOULD. IT WAS SO HOT IN THE ROOM. NO AC, THERE WAS NO DECOR, IT SMELLED AWFUL, I WAS AFRAID TO SLEEP UNDER THE COVERS EVEN IF IT WOULD HAVE BEEN COOL ENOUGH. WE HAD 6 FANS IN THE ROOM WITH 2 WINDOWS OPEN AND IT WAS SWELTERING. THE SHOWER WAS DIRTY, AND THE STAFF WAS RUDE. THERE WAS ALSO NO MENTION ON THEIR HOTELS.COM SITE THAT THE SECOND FLOOR IS A HOMELESS SHELTER/RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT FACILITY HOWEVER IT IS. THE ELEVATOR WAS BROKEN MOST OF THE NIGHT AND MY DISABLED SON ALMOST HAD TO BE CARRIED DOWN 5 FLIGHTS OF STAIRS. THE PARKING GARAGE WAS LIKE 4 BLOCKS AWAY AND THEY REFUSED TO GIVE A REFUND FOR 2 REASONS 1)THEY ARE A "NON PROFIT" 2) BECAUSE I BOOKED ON A TRAVEL SITE BUT OFFERED ME 20% OFF MY NEXT STAY WHICH WILL BE NEVER!!! I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE AND WAS DEF NOT WORTH 185 A NIGHT.
This is not an overly fancy room, but was roomy and had a clean and decent kitchenette. The location was superb in the old naval yard, with quiet cobblestone, tree-lined street for walking just minutes from the harbor, a fantastic restaurant, a small market with YMCA fitness center and pool attached. I would definitely stay here again.
It was inexpensive. The whole place smells like a locker room.
