This was our first stay at the Morrison House B&B. The location couldn't be better, near our son and daughter-in-law and close to the Davis "T" subway stop. The room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was pleasant - nothing too fancy but enough to make it through the morning.

We stayed 2 nights in the Morrison room with a queen and murphy bed. The house is clean and comfortable. The street is quiet, and the other guests were quiet. Davis Sq. subway stop is a short walk. Uber cab also available in area. Breakfast is served at a large table. The other guests were friendly. The French press coffee... More

Darling B & B steps away from the Davis "T" Subway Station. We stayed here 4 nights on business and didn't have to rent a car because it was so easy to use the subway to get to Cambridge and Downtown Boston. Cold breakfast offerings--boiled eggs, cereal, bananas, muffins. They have 3 rooms upstairs--smaller, and one big King size bed... More

We spent 3 days and 2 nights at Morrison House and we had a perfect stay. The room is clean and cozy and it provides everything you need. I must also say I got surprised, when I found out I didn't have any cotton swabs in my bag and found some in the bathroom (which I couldn't find in many... More

We stayed 4 nights in the Warren-Sparrow room on the main floor. The room was spacious and clean. The king bed was comfortable. The bathroom sparkled. This room includes 2 single murphy beds. I think that if 4 of you were using the room, you'd be tripping over each other. Breakfast is a cold continental meal with fresh muffins, jams,... More

The room was excellent with en suite bathroom. There was TV, rocking chair, very comfortable bed and a Murphy bed that was not needed for this visit. The hosts were friendly and helpful. There was a binder in the room with local eateries and cab service, etc. And the other guests were most charming with interesting stories. We would absolutely... More

We enjoyed 6 nights at this B&B while visiting our daughter at Tufts. Location is perfect as it is a short walk to lively Davis Square and the T-station but also walking distance to the University. There are many different restaurants in the area and a cinema on the square. Breakfast was delicious with different fresh fruit and home baked... More

Absolutely great place to stay. Everything you want in a bed and breakfast . Quiet street right near Davis Square. Friendly people. Clean. Great breakfast. My son and I stayed in the room above the front door. The street noise was next to nothing after ten o'clock. Great value

Everything was so thoughtfully and carefully done, down to the smallest details. I felt cared for but in a very laid-back, friendly way. The location is incredible too - especially for being 2 seconds from the T, and it's easy to pop out for ice cream in Davis square. I wish I lived at this B&B.

Although the web site says "free parking", be aware that this is not necessarily off street parking. You may be given a parking permit to put in your window for on street parking and then have to take pot luck for what's available on the street, often 1 1/2 to 2 blocks away. This is somewhat misleading, especially when you... More

We have three off-street parking, spaces, which is adequate 90% of the time, since many of our guests use public transportation. When we do have more than three guest cars we provide a permit to park on the street. We park our own car on the street before we ask a guest to do so. Somerville is a wonderful, though... More
