The rooms are a good size, but not luxurious. Free wi-fi, a good continental breakfast, and parking. The inn is in two buildings, and we stayed at the contemporary one, not the main Victorian building. Our room was surprisingly quiet, even though it was next to the parking lot. The TV is the size of a postage stamp, but we...

This is a really comfortable Inn, super helpful staff. We stayed here one night with our primary goal to see Harvard. Staff offered bus information and tips for the campus, don't think about driving! Breakfast was excellent. Staff also guided us to the simplest way to get to Boston Logan airport, much appreciated, it only took us 20 minutes to...

If you expect this place will be in Cambridge you will be disappointed - more like Somerville and 20 mins by car from anything central. Set on a bleak section of Mass Ave the inn covers two properties. The original may be more charming but the annex is a cheaply divided former home with peculiar contemporary art in the hallways...

I had to visit Harvard Law school in summer for a conference. I find that standard hotels are beyond my capacity. So I stayed here. You cannot book well in advance from the inn website - I tried a third party website. There is no lift -so if you have heavy luggage or mobility issue (knee pain etc) stay in...

Look no further if you need to stay in the Cambridge/Boston area; not only is it reasonably priced (by Boston standards), but it is lovely, too. We had a contemporary room and it was clean, well-decorated and quiet. The bed was very comfortable too. The only thing that wasn’t great was the rising sun coming through the blinds; a curtain...

Very disappointed with this room. It was a traditional room on the ground floor which was extremely dark and dingy. Over hung with drapes, and a 4 poster bad that covered the ceiling ligh. The shutters on the upper window would not open due to the drapes and as the room was ground level the lower shutters had to be...

The front office people were great. The room was comfotable. The only drawback is the room has a window air conditioner that struggled a bit to cool the room. It was July and hot and humid, overall, no real complaints. The breakfast is nothing more than standard chain hotel buffet. The real beauty is the cost and location. Very reasonable...

First of all the room was clean and the breakfast was okay for B&B standard. But the room was dark, ancient and not very comfortable. The wifi in our room was unfortunately very bad. Other guest we met at breakfast told us the same. The walk to the red line takes about 10 minutes which is ok. On the way...

I stayed here for a few nights for business. The location is perfect for my purpose of travel. It is near from Davis square and Porter square. If you have business near Cambridge area, this could be useful. The room is rather small and has not much space except for the bed. The bathroom is somewhat unnecessarily large and has...

The people were wonderful, our room was comfortable and breakfast was yummy. I can't wait to go back! This is a great place for enjoying Boston and it's environs. It is convenient to public transportation too.
