My guess is that when this hotel opened many years ago, it was probably pretty "cool." Well, the magic has worn off. Shabby. That's probably a good word for the room in which my family stayed. It was not worth the $225 per night. The couch had about 20 extremely visible stains. The pillows were dirty and sticking out under... More

WOW! what a beautiful hotel. The hotel is right off the highway but the area is very quiet. The hotel looks very stunning and the Welcome Lobby was very clean, a lot of seating area to relax and enjoy yourself. My Family and I had a great time. The Pool and gym is off to the right of the lobby,... More

I stayed at the Element when it first opened about 6 years ago, everything was brand spanking new and I loved it. I just stayed for 5 nights, it is still a great property. I love the contemporary vibe, the lobby area, the happy hour with comp beer/wine/apps but it is ready for a bit of a refresh. Wobbly towel... More

This is a particularly nice hotel for dog owners. They don't charge any extra per night for the privilege of bringing your canine on vacation. They also offer a few "gifts" for your pet. Plenty of places outside to walk your dog as well. Breakfast was fine, accommodations a tad spartan but certainly acceptable. We would stay here again.

Very nice - large rooms with a unique layout (desk faces beds with tv on corner, has a couch and coffee table); useful kitchenette and full fridge. Pool looked nice although we didn't use it. Had only two complaints: 1) the heater was VERY loud - not sure how people deal with the noise when it's really needed. We just... More

After reading lots of reviews I picked this hotel. I liked the location, the breakfast, the cost and that there was no cancellation fee. What we liked when we got there was that the room was large,Full sized fridge, 2 burners, a microwave and dishwasher. It's a green hotel with a great location. We ended up staying two nights instead... More

This hotel was amazing, a little outside of Boson but well worth the drive. The breakfast was generally great, changing options and all good (better on the weekends). Shamara at the front desk was awesome, we accidentally booked an accessible room and she switched us immediately when I expressed my displeasure, and she was courteous and professional the entire stay....

This hotel is easy to get to off the highway and a great location for getting to various parts of Massachusetts, especially 128 tech area and Cambridge. The atmosphere is very open, it is one of the best hotels I have stayed in for the affordable price. My room was like a studio apartment, with a full sized refrigerator, stove,... More

One of my favorite hotels in the Boston Area. Easily accessible to Cambridge and Boston with extremely comfortable rooms and a great staff. Take advantage of the free morning breakfast as well as the weekday evening snacks. My go to hotel when in the area.

The title withstanding, we stayed here as a family of 3. The pull out sofa provided comfy accommodation for #3.. (Having reserved for 3, I would have preferred that it was already made up rather than having to do it myself with the linens delivered to the door. Grumbly, I know, but at that price point, that seems a reasonable... More
