... Connor went about his business of finding all things cool and making fiends with everyone whilst I just tried unsuccessfully to not bang my head on the deck beams. Damn these yankees were short. We then tried to visit the destroyer in the dockyard but is was closed for repairs.

Rode the infamous swans and enjoyed watching the ducks and very gutsy squirrels do their thing. I enjoyed taking in the architecture of many of the buildings in the downtown area, stumbling upon many of the buildings used for location shots in 'Boston Legal'. Anyone that knows me knows that I am a massive 'Boston Legal' fan. Hence, it's ...
... me a dumb ass for not memorising the wiring map of the camper, and then introducing me to a new invention just marketed in America called lubricant…he said using it might be an idea we could try. I asked him what position he held in the Company and he replied he was the company *******. I felt that my reflection that he was over qualified for the job was game set and match.
All squeaks and leaks attended to and we were off to a place called Sioux City, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Oasis Guest House Bed and Breakfast Boston
The Oasis is in a good position, the staff are friendly and the place itself is clean and pleasant. However our room was tiny. Not enough room to swing a tiny kitten. Boston was 5 nights of a 3-week trip so we were carrying a fair bit of luggage, mostly clothes, and there was just nowhere to put them. No wardrobe, just a small rail under the TV with 6 hangers on it. They turned up another half dozen hangers when we asked but we still had to leave a lot of our stuff packed, and then had nowhere to put our cases. So, ok for a businessman traveling light but not great if part of a major trip. Oh and the room was also noisy. No double-glazing so you could hear people talking as they walked by outside, and the walls were paper-thin so we know what the people in the next room had done each day and were planning to do the next! Just pray your neighbours don't put their TV on.
Good location, friendly staff, reasonable price
I stayed at the Oasis Guesthouse for a night in September 2005 and was very pleased with it. The staff was friendly at all times and the room was clean and equipped with a comfortable bed, phone & tv, bureau and mirror. The bathroom (shared!) was very clean too. Breakfast was okay (bagels, different kinds of toast, fruit, coffee, tea...). Be prepared to carry your baggage up to your room though, there is no elevator. The location was good, only a 5 minute walk to the next T station that'll get you everywhere in Boston. If you're looking for a cheap place to sleep while you're in Boston, Oasis is definitely a great place to stay.
We stayed at the Oasis guest house for seven nights and found it to be a clean and friendly place to stay. I agree that, yes, the rooms are on the small side but to be honest there is so much to do in Boston that we were out all day and only returned late in the evening in order to go to sleep. The staff are extremely friendly and we found them to be very helpful with advice on where to eat out and what to go and see. We had a double room with shared bathroom and to be honest we didn't have to wait to use the bathroom once, which was great as this was something that we had been apprehensive about. Breakfast was good, consisting mainly of cereal, toast, bagels, croissants and danishes. There was plenty for everyone and there was a good atmosphere in the shared living space where breakfast was served. I would have no reservations in recommending the Oasis Guest House to anyone planning on visiting Boston and I will definately be staying here on my next visit.
The Oasis Guest House is probably one of the cheaper places you will find to stay in in Boston. What I think is great about the Oasis is that the prices are low, but they still manage to serve your needs.
We stayed for two nights in mid-November. It has a good location: right by Berklee School of Music, the symphony, Northeastern University, the Massachusetts Historical Society ... and about a thirty minute, pleasant walk down Boylston street to all the tourist sites of old Boston.
Cheap and friendly
The location is a hike down to the Faneuil Hall Area of Boston. But a great location for picking up the T and going to the SAM ADAMS BREWERY TOUR! There are some cute little bars within 10 minutes of walking, and you can take the T to most of the tourist attractions. The individuals who work the front desk are VERY helpful in getting you directions to just about anywhere! The price was great, but you get a small room and a shared bathroom for a 100 bucks plus tax!
Cheap, Cozy, Helpful
I recently stayed at the Oasis Guest House and loved it. The staff was very friendly and warm, the rooms are smaller but very clean with tasteful decor. The price is quite reasonable. You get keys for access to come and go as you please, they serve a breakfast of fresh fruit, a sellection of breads/pastries, hot cereal, coffe, tea and juice. The staff is able to give you direction, information, and are really very nice ( not typically Bostonian). You have easy access to the T( subway system) and can walk to shopping, event, and Tourist attractions. I know exactly where I'll be staying on my return trips.
We stayed here during Easter 2003 for 10 nights and I have to day we couldn't have asked for better accomodation and such a supurb location. Yes the rooms are small, but at the end of the day you only want to sleep there, but they are clean and I have to say that I have never slept in a bed so comfortable. Breakfast is nothing unique, bagles, toast, muffins etc but more than plentyful. In the kitchen you have use of a fridge and micowave so is great to warm up snacks etc. The staff are great very friendly. The only bit of advice I can give is don't book the room that opens up to the kitchen/breakfast area as it is so unfair that when you open your door you are on show to everyone, thats my only negative point. Safety wise, no problem never felt intimidated once. Overall a great little gem...cheers!
Last October (2003), I stayed at the Oasis Guest House for 3 days. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely stay there again, In fact, it would be my first choice.
Nice, Clean Place, but Very Small
I stayed for 3 days - very clean and management is very nice. But room very small, no closet and the bath down the hall. Continental breakfast. No hot food. Nice Back Bay area - close to shopping and transportation, and schools and convention center. Okay for one or two people, but not good for families or disabled. No elevator and had to drag bags to second floor.
