We stayed here in August while visiting the Boston area on vacation and to visit Harvard College. This was my third time staying at an Extended Stay hotel but I wasn't as satisfied as my other stays.

Room was dirty- food on floor and counter, blanket covered in dog hair, shower curtain had mold. Hotel was noisy and staff did nothing to resolve it. Hallways smelled of smoke, like walking into the smoking room at an airport. Don't stay here. I checked out early and moved to a better hotel.

I've stayed here a few times and have always been pleased. The rooms are comfortable, but the staff is excellent, always so friendly and helpful, greeting you with a smile and actually remember your name which you don't see often these days. I'll definitely stay again!

While I don't have the range of complaints regarding the hotel's cleanliness as several of the other reviewers do, I nonetheless am unlikely to return.

I had the extreme displeasure of staying here last week. Unfortunately, the local hotels were booked out. By comparison, I have had the pleasure of staying at the Westin which is about 200 yards away with a room rate of ~$219. At the Homestead, I paid the room rate of $235. What did I experience? The stench of cheap disinfectant... More

We slept OK here thanks to the very loud in-room AC, but our child, who has traveled a lot, found the place scary, and my wife, who has traveled lots more for both business and pleasure, found it sad. There's no way we'd ever go back: there has to be a better place for the price. The guy at the... More
