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 …
... a big thing in The States. Basically, what you do is you go to a FroYo place and ask for a Frozen Yogurt with unlimited toppings. This means you can add all the toppings you want to your dessert, think of for example fudge, butterscotch, banana, chocolate sprinkles, cranberries, caramel sauce, blueberries, chocolate chip cookies, whipped cream etc etc. It goes without saying that I went all out, see picture for mouthwatering visual.
... beds. When I found what I wanted, I needed to refuel and I ate my first Mac&Cheese ever at a small place near the mall. It was then time to travel back to campus because obviously I couldn’t wait to try out my newest purchases.
Before the chillings in my new bed could start, I first made a quick stop at the supermarket across Boston College, which was just another great opportunity to judge the Americans and their eating habits. ...

It was nice to experience the event and we enjoyed the hot dogs in the stand but the experience hasn't yet changed my opinion of American base ball. We left before the game finished. Boston was a pleasant little surprise and is where I've had the best pretzel thus far. ...

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.
