September 1 is just a month away which means scores of college students will be coming back to Boston, many of whom will be making the big step of moving into their first apartments as they move off-campus for the first time. It’s a big day in Boston, with moving vans lining the streets of popular student neighborhoods such as Allston and Brighton, and many parents will be in town to help their kids make the move.

If you’re one of the proud parents helping your kids set up their new digs, you’ll probably want a place to sleep for the night after a long day of moving. Our two Boston bed and breakfast locations are conveniently located near several local area colleges and a short drive, walk, or T ride away from many popular student neighborhoods throughout Boston and Brookline. Book your room today!

Most of the graduation dates for the big Boston schools have come and gone but MIT doesn’t hold their commencement until Friday, June 7. If you’re still looking to book a room, then the Beacon Inn can help! We still have a few rooms available during MIT’s graduation weekend so give us a call at 617-566-0088 or 888-575-0088 for rates.

Our two Boston bed and breakfast hotels are located just a hop, skip, and a jump across the river from MIT’s campus in Cambridge. Make us your home away from home when you’re in town for commencement.

We’re almost halfway through April which means that May graduation dates are just around the corner! Our Boston bed and breakfast locations are located close to several area schools, including Boston College, Boston University, Simmons College, Emmanuel College, and more. Our historic brownstones offer a quiet refuge from the hustle and bustle of graduation season, yet our proximity to local attractions and public transportation make us a convenient hub for your Boston visit.

This is always a very popular time of year for Boston hotels so we recommend booking your rooms early! Some of the busier graduation weekends are currently closed to online bookings but we do still have rooms available! You can call us directly at 617-566-0088 or 888-575-0088 for up-to-date availability and rates. Let the Beacon Inn be your home away from home this graduation season.
