The original plan for today was to catch the ferry over to Salem... shame the ferry doesn't start back up until May 22nd (really?! This has been our luck the entire holiday so we shouldn't have been surprised.)

Blake and I wanted to go check out the Cambridge area which is where Harvard University Campus is located so we headed in that …

We woke to a sunny morning in Boston and decided to make our brekky in the room as we had kitchen facilities. Ham and cheese croissants were on the menu. After breakfast we walked down the road to the USS Constitution ship and museum which is the final stop on the freedom trail.

First we had a look through the museum. The museum was very …

Red Sox and dry feet

... I guess the US is too big to follow your team around.

4. Ruth loved the ice cream and the foam finger and took a huge interest in how much all of them earned- published in the brochure. She also thought they could have had nicer photos for the score board when they were pitching/ hitting.

Left Fenway pronto, collected car and drove to Cape Cod. House lovely. Wandered down to the beach at nightfall to watch fireworks over the bay. Lovely and warm.
...

Go Red Sox!

... though since large colonies of seals congregate on the sandbars. The seals themselves are not the problem though, the problem is the Great White Sharks that come in to hunt the seals. I spoke to the beach patrol chap and he said that a Great white had been spotted in the area this week!

The boys were quite happy digging and building sandcastles though while we took in the scenery. It seems you are never too old for sandcastles! We ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Constitution Inn Boston

    Pleasant stay

    from

    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.

    Primarily for Military staff

    from

    It feels like an upscale YMCA with some of the three star Hotel features and yet the infrastructure of a Youth Hostel.

    Brilliant!

    from

    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

    from

    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 was entremely impressed by this Hotel!

    from

    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.

    Would have been more impressed in my student days..

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    What booking?

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.
