I had to run to Boston from Hopkinton, and The Samuel Sewall Inn was the perfect place to stay. It's a snap to take the trolley to and from Boston. The inn is filled with warmth and fun. The all day treats made me want to hang around the inn all day. The breakfasts are fun and delicious...apple cinnamon cheddar...

I stayed here for Friday and Saturday nights while visiting a friend and her family in Brookline. I can't speak to the convenience of the inn to Boston, because I didn't do any site seeing there. But the inn itself is very cozy. I had one of the rooms on the top floor. The bed was comfortable, and the decoration...

This is a great place to stay when visiting the Boston area. It's well run, beautifully appointed, quiet, accommodating and comfortable. Reasonable prices too. Wonderful attention to guests ensures that I will always recommend and come back to stay.

The Inn is well located for getting the underground into Boston. There are good restaurants within walking distance so a car is not needed. You can get all the way to the INN from the airport on the underground, but there is one change needed. The room was well presented, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was taken in the entrance hall...

Found this place online and read all the great reviews on Trip Advisor, so decided to give it a try. When all the halfway respectable hotels were going for $400-$500 a night, The Samuel Sewall was half that with just as much (and in some cases twice as much) character. Absolutely charming, the rooms are beautiful and very comfortable; ours...

Because Boston hotels were so expensive when we wanted to take our 1st anniversary trip, we decided to try a bed & breakfast. My husband and I were both unsure what to expect, but if all b&b's are this great we will travel this way more often! Location: The b&b is located in Brookline, a great suburb of Boston where...

As I stepped into the Sewall Inn away from the familiar din of cars, sirens, and construction Boston offers as daily soundtrack, I felt as Lucy must have felt as she crossed the threshold of the wardrobe into that wonderous, otherworldly land of Narnia. The first room you enter is a combination dining/sitting room fresh out of an Austen novel....

We stayed at the Sewall Inn for one night while in Boston while visiting and seeing a show at the Wang Theater (Michael Buble!!)before heading to the North Shore.

We had two rooms for three nights from 7/30 to 8/2/2007. This was the third B&B in which we stayed while traveling throughout New England, and it was by far the best in this price range. Despite the busy location, our room was totally quiet and peaceful. The beds were heavenly, good mattresses and pillows, with step stools to aid...

Spent last Sunday Night at the Samuel Sewall Inn after seeing a show at the Paradise Rock Club which is adjacent to Boston University. The Inn is an old fashioned New England B+B. The room and public areas were spotlessly clean. With a "T" train stop at the next block, I thought it would we noisier but all was peaceful...

“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.”
