I live in FL and travel to Cambridge for work every month. I've stayed here 5 different times in past year. For the most part, they do a good job. The staff is courteous and responsive. The rooms are always clean. The beds are fairly comfortable, and there's little outside noise. I had to cut my last trip short after...

Nice little hotel. Good breakfast included. Right next to a shopping center. Very clean, worth the price. We were a group of 100 people travelling for a gymnastics meet in MIT. Nice neighborhood. Hotel bar closes too early and there is nothing to do around specially for kids who got bored. Shuttle to Alewife Station and to Harvard Square every...

Loved the location. Shuttle was available to Harvard Square and the train station. (We often walked to the station) Strip Mall behind the hotel was great to get a quick bite to eat. (Whole Foods, McDonalds and even a small cinema.) Very convenient to get everywhere you wanted in Boston by train.

We visited Boston during peak foliage so the hotel prices in Boston were too expensive and we needed a place to park our rental car. I was very pleased with our stay here. A 10 minute walk to the red line (it's at the very end of the line so you can't get confused going into Boston or coming back)...

From check-in to check-out, the staff was top-notch - helpful, friendly, and smiling! The free breakfast was excellent. The room was quiet (I was on the top 4th floor), and most of the other guests I saw appeared to be business travelers and retirees. I had the AARP rate, which was very good compared to other Cambridge/Boston hotels.

I regretted to stay here, despite the friendly staff. The price is very high, but the room smelled moldy. They offered continental breakfast, but was just some cheap stuff that could only fill up your stomach, don't expect any enjoying breakfast time. However, I have to admit it is a good location, nearby the Tudor Park. So, you can have...

This is the best deal for your money in the Boston area. You can walk from the hotel to the subway, and the hotel offers free shuttles into the city, too. Lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance of the hotel, and the rooms were clean and very comfortable. I stayed for a couple nights last weekend, and I'm...
