Stayed here numerous times over the last 4 years. It is a very well run hotel compared to others I've stayed in. The beds are very comfortable, the food is plentiful and good. Everyone is pleasant and helpful and it is close to the T.

We stayed 3 nights while touring the city. 1km walk to subway or free shuttle. Great sized room, excellent staff and good breakfast. Liquor and grocery next to the hotel. We walked to hazard square which is a must. We'd stay again, Highly recommended!

I would have liked this hotel for the shuttle to T stations alone, but the staff made my stay extra wonderful. Everyone was beyond courteous - they were genuinely warm, caring, helpful and efficient. For a senior traveling alone, this was quite a bonus. The shuttle will take you either right up the road to the Alewife station on the...

Our first stay at the Hotel Tria. This Hotel was recommended by friends who stayed there several times in the past. Happy to say they chose well for us. This hotel is economically priced (a.k.a. within our budget range) but offers some great emmenities. The room we stayed in was spacious offering two double beds, 32" television, mini-fridge, large table,...

Modern, clean and very good staff. A very nice place to stay if your are visiting Boston. T Stop is a seven minute walk from the hotel on the Red Line. They also offer a free shuttle service if you need it. Included breakfast was very good.

I didn’t love much about this hotel, but I liked EVERYTHING. Nice folks. Quiet rooms. Sufficient parking. Good breakfast (especially the scrambled eggs). Good bed. Fine shower. Wifi worked well. I feel funny giving a 5-rating when there was nothing really special. I guess the special thing is that they do a good job all around.

The location is out of the way but the hotel offers a free shuttle to Harvard Square every hour. The staff was very professional. The room was comfortable and well appointed. The free full breakfast was good but nothing out of the ordinary (eggs, sausage, toast, waffles, cereal yogurt).

Easy access to watch the 4th of July fireworks. The subway was close enough to walk to and enabled us to get to a variety of places. The breakfast bar had a nice variety of food. Front desk personnel were extremely helpful

Very thing about this hotel is great. Good breakfast, courteous staff with informative service. Internet worked well in the room. Their shuttle takes to the nearest station which we used and also to Harvard Square. Fresh Pool next door was very handy for talks and bike rides. Everything advertised is what they provide. The stay was very enjoyable and we...

My first time in Boston! I stayed for 6-7 nights and really enjoyed my stay. The staff is courteous, great shuttle service, great breakfast, coffee and my 4 year old loved the afternoon cookies at the front desk. Great location, right next to supermarkets, pharmacy, restaurants, cinema and a great park(Danehy Park). I like having a refigerator and microwave in...
