I recently booked a stay at Brookside House because it is conveniently located close to the south shore beaches (Nantasket, to be specific). It is an outstanding value! First of all, immediately after I booked the room the management reached out to me to ask me if I had any questions, and to inform me of the shared bathroom arrangement. The "shared bathroom" is actually somewhat of an overstatement, and definitely not a reason not to stay at Brookside House. Each pair of adjoining rooms are connected by a small hallway, and the bathroom is a separate door off of that hallway. So therefore the rooms are not connected by a bathroom, but rather by a hallway. It was absolutely never an issue during my stay. I was going to be checking in late, so I reached out and the management (I emailed with both Lori and Kevin) could not have been nicer or more responsive. They clearly care about customer service, and do their best to make every visitor feel welcomed. The room itself was exceptionally clean, well decorated, and fully equipped. While I did not spend much time in my room (opting for the beach instead) it was certainly comfortable. I would highly recommend Brookside House to any travelers who are heading towards the south shore beaches OR Boston, and are looking for an excellent value!
