I stay at this hotel whenever visiting Cambridge. Location is great and service is good. Walking distance to a number of convenience shopping areas and movie theater. Hot breakfast and a Starbucks in the lobby is a nice touch.

This is an average Best Western for an above average price. The room was okay, the staff were friendly and helpful. The free shuttle service will only take you to the subway once every hour on the hour and you have to book your return trip at ten minutes past the hour. But the walk is only 10 minutes so...

Stayed here 3 nights. Room was fine, no issues. It would be nice if there was a pool, but there isn't. So we went to the movie theater. Movie theater is within walking distance if you don't want to drive. Breakfast was included - you could make waffles, there is cereal, fruit, pre-made eggs and bacon or sausage, juices. It...

Hotel was clean and efficient with friendly staff. Restaurant on premise was very limited and by no means "full service" but they did a great job on the complimentary breakfast which my family enjoyed each day before heading out,. Location is not in the city but was on outskirt of Boston; hotel shuttle to/from train was used when needed to...

I like the free breakfast and.... wait, that's it. This is one of the worst hotels I've ever encountered. Bed: I stayed here for a week and the bed was SO incredibly terrible that I (no joke) had to go to the doctor when I got home to deal with the back pain. Room: What's impressive is what they've done...

My son and I stayed here while visiting colleges. It was chosen for its proximity to the schools and for the price. The hotel rooms were adequate as was the complimentary breakfast. Some staff members were friendly and helpful while others seemed like they didn't want to be there. Some of the equipment in the gym was broken. The worst...

We stayed here for two nights while visiting my brother in Cambridge MA. I was with my two kids, my mom and my cousin who was off for the week from med school. The hotel is in a very busy part of the city as far as retail and supermarket shopping goes which isn't a bad thing. The hotel itself...

Above average hotel. Well kept up, within walking distance of a "T" subway stop. Hourly shuttles to Harvard Square as well. Adequate breakfast, if one doesn't mind scrambled eggs, pork sausage, and mediocre bagels. But the price is right, and the hotel staff seemed friendly.

The Tria is a hotel that offered a comfortable room with a nice breakfast. We have stayed here several times and like the rooms, the breakfast, the location close to the Alewife subway stop and even a shuttle to Harvard Square. The prices are fairly good for the Boston Cambridge area ($250 per night including taxes). The bathrooms could use...

“306, though it had it's own set of problems, was much quieter than our new room in 412. I would avoid this place altogether though.”
