Old but Decent
It's difficult to find an affordable hotel in Boston. This one is adequate. The rooms are small. One admonition...make sure that you don't get the room closest to the antiquated and LOUD elevator.
Comfortable hotel with good location
We stayed at this hotel in May 2003 and found it clean & comfortable.
The building is old and the design/size of the rooms are influenced by this. There is a bit more character than some of these modern concrete hotels. Although the bar is principally for gay clientelle this did not appear to affect the actual hotel itself. Location was excellent for going into Boston centre or down to the Back Bay area which was very interesting. We'd certainly give this hotel consideration on a return visit to Boston.
Clean, cosy and comfortable
Stayed at the Chandler Inn in November. Rooms are small, but very clean and stylish. Staff were helpful and directed us to a yummy local resturant. Good value for money and quiet location that is still handy to everything. I would stay there again. Much more character than the chain hotels. I'm glad I ddin't take the negative reviews too seriously.
Be careful booking on line
small rooms, sheets and towels were once upon a time white! it smells... no parking secured for the guests. with a gay bar. worst experience......
Central, clean and quiet
I spent four nights at Chandler Inn recently and my feelings about the hotel are generally favorable. Contrary to what is said on the internet and in at least one tour book, the hotel does not serve a continental breakfast. Coffee and tea are available in the lobby throughout the day.The location is excellent; the staff has little to say and it is an overstatement to say that they are "friendly and helpful". I would recommend this hotel to the traveler who wants a quiet room at low/moderate cost.
Chandler - A nice place to stay but not a luxury hotel.
I stayed at the Chandler a few years ago. It was a nice, clean room, though a little small. The staff were professional. A little old-fashioned, like they make you leave your key at the front desk when you leave and the elevator's pretty old. I'd stay there again. I paid a great price for what I got .
Good basic hotel
You must understand what this hotel is! It is not a resort hotel, but it a good, clean, centrally located, friendly accommodations...at a fair price. Caters to a gay clientele, and the open minded. Attached is a nice friendly sports / neighborhood bar Fritz that welcomes everyone (Best bartender is Andrew - great sense of humor) Brunch every Saturday and Sunday--
Unfriendly, not very helpful staff. Rooms very small, not much heat, even in very cold weather.
Great Hotel-Very Friendly
Hotel is great for the price. They tailor to your needs. Very private. Very homey. Close to train, theatres, the trolley, and shopping.
I would recommend for a relaxing vacation.
very bad hotel for that price

... it had the appearance of a convenience store. But inside as you stepped closer to what looked like a vending machine, a door slid open and there was a very hip shoe store. Very cool indeed! A friend that I made in San Fran introduced me to Mike in Boston. And he was able to show me around Boston, which was very kind of him. I wish I had spent a few more days in Boston, but there's always next ...
... Because there were twice as many schools at this fair, it being further along in the hiring season, AND this is one of the last largest job fairs, AND more teaching positions are available (most schools at this point know most, if not all, the positions they need to fill), schools were more eager and willing to interview people.
We interviewed with schools in the following countries:

The flight was about seven hours long and the journey was alright apart from the dodgy looking Asian bloke next to me who kept making startling snorting noises at random intervals. Somewhere along the way I began to realise that I had a problem with my vision. I had recently been given a new prescription of contact lenses by the optician in Berwick and this was the first day I had tried them. At first I ...

While Luke and I lugged the laundry back to the hotel the girls went browsing up and down Newbury street, which is the main shopping strip in Boston. Come lunchtime we found a little Indian restaurant and indulged ...

We continued on the trail on our own, stopping at Henry's bakery for a Boston Cream Pie and coffee and tea. Henry's is a extremely popular place with line ups out and down the street. We were lucky and didn't ...
