On the whole this was a standard boat accommodation,this was cheaper than a hotel however it was a little more basic than expected even for a cabin which was extremely small (we had 2 suitcases). Showering was noisy due to buzzing extractor fan and there was no hot water. I booked online weeks in advance but their payment system failed which meant I had to get more cash out to pay on the evening we arrived. We were told to at ship for 8pm to check in but there was no ship to be found.

We had an excellent experience abord the Liberty Clipper. When we get back to Boston, we will definitely be staying there again.

Beats being homeless, and that's about it.The staff was clearly fed with their jobs and unfriendly. The directions to the ship were unclear, which led to having to wander around the dock at 11pm. Plus asking about luggage storage is clearly inconvenient for them. For the price the conditions were not all too luxurious at all.plus one has to wander around the town until the ship returns in the evening as yooo get kicked out every morning at 10am.

The room is on a ship! As expected, everything is small and not fancy--but it is an amazing alternative to other options as far as the uniqueness. This is what we wanted! We did not want normal or big chain hotel experience. We loved the chummy feel of bunking with the crew on board. Coffee on deck in the morning was amazing. Only drawback was having to leave and not being able to board again until after 20:00--but no curfew was nice. Would stay again if ever in the area.

Great place to stay in Boston. Don't make the same mistake as us and arrive with HUGE suitcases (stupid of us), or you'll find them difficult to haul up and down steep ladders (yes, it really is a boat) and you'll battle to move around in your cabin. Super staff, Location amazing.

The idea of sleeping on a ship is fun and the cost is decent, but I would not recommend this place unless you are looking for the bare bones, just a bed to sleep type place. Everything is a bit cramped, and I was a little concerned that I could just walk on and off the ship with no one around to make sure I was staying there. The breakfast was good, staff friendly, and location great. Just keep in mind you are sleeping on an old ship, don't expect much.

I figured other people just had the wrong expectations when leaving negative reviews. I was wrong. The location is great, the staff is not up to scratch. Unclean, blocked drains, no loo paper, staff got drunk and slept through breakfast service. Not great. On the other hand, you couldn't ask for a better location from which to explore Boston.
