The Constitution Inn is fabulous - attached the YMCA whereby guests get to attend classes and uuse the Pool for free. I got a shuttle ride (in the dark) to a nearby building on the historic site and others on the bus were kind enough to tell me how to shortcut it to the Inn. Then I hadn't eaten so found, in the dark, the Tavern on the Wharf which …
... The foodhall had everything you could think of - even a toffee apple stall.
One thing Bostonians let themselves down is customer service. We got so use to New Yorkers going OTT with customers service but here it is the complete opposite. They couldn't care if they served you or not. Tax is another annoyance. You get money ready for your coffee or lunch to find it doesn't include tax. Then of course in both NY ...
... my department for homeland security inspector quizzed me on my knowledge of Timebanks but name dropping Winston got a good reaction. I've dragged myself out of my hotel, it's roughly 1am GMT but only 7pm local time, so I've found a bar which is showing a Red Sox ball game and sells beer from Bedford! Tomorrow I'm going to check out hudson Bay Area using the ...
... We’ve got a shuttle booked to take us to the hotel we’re staying at for the next 2 nights so we’ll probably pop in, dump our stuff and go straight out and start exploring! We gotta get to Miami at some stage too so we’ll probably get a bus or train down there in a couple of days and check it out. I’ll let you know how it goes :) That was such a ******n long post. Should I make my posts more about the highlights or do you guys want the detail?lemme ...
... of the British Parliament. It was interesting to hear of this early American history years before Australian settlement.
In the afternoon we settled into our room at the Fairmont Copley Square where we have a two night stay. We put on our walking shoes and retraced some of the path of the morning bus tour back through the inner city to the harbour. This was made easy as Boston has a lined path through it's city called the Freedom ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Constitution Inn Boston
We stayed here for three nights in October 2005. The rooms were very big and comfortable with two double beds, coffee machine, TV and fridge. The only downside was the location - it is very quiet, especially at night and as we were two females we felt quite uncomfortable coming back late at night. Overall though, a very pleasant stay.
It feels like an upscale YMCA with some of the three star Hotel features and yet the infrastructure of a Youth Hostel.
Stayed here twice now - excellent value for money! Close by everything and everyone was really friendly to us!
Rooms are very clean and spacious and in a very nice setting!!! This is actually owned by YMCA but dont let that put you off - its been one of the best hotels i have stayed at in a long while for this price!
Good value, good location
We got a deal: $199 for 2 nights. But even the regular price of $250 is a pretty good deal in Boston. The room was clean and big, not fancy but perfectly adequate. Right on the Freedom Trail. Very near the USS Constitution. Free shuttle to Boston's North Station (MTA). Several good restaurants within walking distance. Parking was a problem: 3 blocks away, but it is downtown, so ... The Constitution Inn caters to military, I believe, and while it's not a place for snobs, we would definitely stay there again.
I spent 5 nights at the Constitution Inn, located in the historic Charlestown Navy Yard (also where the USS Constitution is docked) and just minutes to downtown Boston/Fanueil Hall. The rates are phenomenal compared to the rates at many downtown area hotels. The rooms are clean and comfortable with all the amenities.
There's no disguising the fact that the Constitution is a glorified youth hostel, with a definite dormitory feel to it. 15 years ago as a student I'd have been happy to bunk down here. Still, we knew what to expect having read the reviews.
No Frills - Great Location
We spent 2 nights at the Constitution. definitely a no frills type place, but clean with a helpful front desk and a hard to beat location.
They offer a convenient shuttle bus and we also took the ferry into Boston. The hotel is located at Bunkers Hill, directly across the river from our favorite restaurants in the North End. We even walked back to the hotel one night from the North End. If you don't mind single beds in small rooms, you can't beat the price! Rember this was a YMCA on a Navy base. Don't expect to much, but Boston offers way to much to spend much time in your room.
Reception services are not very good especially when they cannot find your booking, there seems to be a reluctance amongst the staff to help visitors out. The Constitution Inn is very, very basic and definately lacking in any sort of style, painted concrete block walls and single bunk beds, with waterproof covers!! We were informed that the Constitution Inn has no connection with the YMCA anymore, they are a hotel!! If this is the case they definately need to look more at the type of clientele they are trying to attract. Definately not suitable for female visitors because of its position, no facilities nearby. When we visited it seemed to be full of teenagers running around. shouting and making a noise.
Lost my parents
Reservations for my elderly parents were set up by staff incorrectly.
Front desk then lost my parents after transferring them to another room. When contacted long distance, the front desk staff was rude, hung up on caller, & when contacted again insisted that my parents had checked out. Once caller located parents by trying them on their cell phone, caller called front desk to inform staff where my parents were.
Front desk again hung up on caller.
Oh, by the way - plastic sheets on all mattresses. You figure it out.
Don't worry -- there are no room inspections
I recently spent three nights in the Constitution Inn and found it to be excellent value. There is free use of extensive fitness facilities in the building, there is use of the Massachusetts General Hospital canteen facilities next door and also use of their free bus shuttle to the nearest rail/underground station. The YMCA is in the heart of the former naval dockyard with restaurants, a 24h shop the US Constitution and a regular ferry shuttle service to the city. Bunkers Hill is a stone throw away and the staff of the YMCA are extremely friendly and helpful. I can
recommend a stay there.
