Verified Reviews of Best Western University Hotel Boston Brighton

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Rat Infested! Worst Hotel Ever!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Let me begin by saying I have never written a negative review. This place is so bad I would like to save other Groups especially School Groups like mine from having a negative experience. First, it took my party of 27 high school students and four adults an hour to even check in, were arrived late in the evening. They didn't have our reservation on file and made an excuse about blocked out rooms don't show on their system?? After we finally got checked in, one room my students were in had rat feces in both beds when the sheets were pulled back! There was no housekeeping nor other rooms for my students to stay in so I had to make them double up with another room at midnight. My room was also dirty. There was a hair in the bed and I asked for clean sheets. The staff passed them to us and expected us to remake our own beds saying that there is no housekeeping at night. Later in the evening a group of students went to the vending machine and saw 8 rats in the parking lot. I saw one rat run across the parking lot myself. After complaining to management in the morning, the hotel called Pest Control. I was not satisfied with the discount the Manager gave me on my room, so I am taking further action against this hotel! Besides this, the hotel is in a neighborhood that is very difficult for buses to get around in. I would never stay here for a group trip again and would never stay here on my own either.

23-Oct-2015 Verified Review, stayed from Tue Oct 20 to Wed Oct 21 2015 at a $159.00 group rate.
Response from Management on 27-Oct-2015:
The group had a reservation of 12 rooms in our system, however, there was no rooming list ever forwarded to the hotel by the school. We had the rooms available and ready when the group arrived, but needed time to input all of the guest names. There was no confusion as to who they were and what they were doing at the hotel. The only confusion was that the guest names were not on the reservations. In regards to the pest control, our hotel has pest control monitor our grounds and rooms twice a month, at a very expensive rate. We are in the city of Boston and we can not be held accountable for what a guest sees in the outside areas of the hotel. while we make every effort to ensure these sightings our limited, unfortunately they do occur. In regards to the guest room being dirty, I feel that it is unfair and irresponsible for the guest to draw a direct correlation to what they saw outside of the hotel and automatically assume that a few dark spots on a sheet are automatically rodent feces. As I mentioned the hotel has an active pest control company that monitors activity twice a month. We have never had any issues in our guest rooms. Lastly, we made it very clear to the group that bus parking is very difficult at our hotel. In any event they decided that they would "make it work", again something that we told them about but they disregarded. Overall, the hotel compensated that group for two rooms which they had direct complaints about. The remainder of the rooms had no issues and no complaints.
