For some reason the week I needed to be in Cambridge was completely sold out - and I literally was shut out all the way to Waltham. (Translating - 10 miles west or so of Cambridge). So I booked this hotel as it was the only one available. First impressions - it's an older hotel - which means smaller rooms,... More

Excellent stay as usual, the new improvements are great and the breakfast additions are a plus. Margot and the Staff were wonderful and make us feel welcome every time we visit. We would absolutely return to this hotel on our next trip to the area. My only compliant would be a little better television

This was a combination business and family trip. Your staff were very pleasant from the front desk, to the dining room attendant and the cleaning ladies! Kudos to All! Enjoyed the bar/restaurant the Hotel had to offer. The male staff in this area were more attentive to their jobs making sure refills and food arrived in a timely manner. The... More

The TLC Best Wester offers nice rooms, a good restaurant and a good breakfast. However the hotel offers no means of public transportation or airport shuttle! If you are visiting Waltham or surroundings is probably well located, however a visit to Boston will cost you $50 return taxi trip to the closest subway station (riverside) and a total travel time...

I stayed here because I forgot to book a room at the Marriott for one week. My whole body started itching while I was sleeping. I never got a sound sleep because of bed bugs. This place is overpriced for the quality it's offering. Please choose to stay here if this is the only option you have.

I stayed again at the Best Western TLC and despite ongoing construction, my stay was perfect. The staff is especially helpful and well trained. This hotel has been making steady progress since Margot Fenton became GM. I hope BW and the franchise realize how much progress has been made in the last year. The Copper House restaurant is a great... More

This hotel was very clean, and had nice décor. The staff were very professional. The atmosphere was rather upscale but the price was very affordable. The breakfast was average in presentation, and the food seems bland. The dining room itself was not inviting. It felt like a sterilized hospital lounge.

Hotel seemed to be undergoing a renovation. Lobby was functional though. Rooms were nice, clean and comfortable bed. Free breakfast was definately a plus. Staff was always curteous and there was ample parking.

Friendly service, great hotel for a good price. So glad that I stayed here instead of in the city. Room was clean, staff was very friendly, room was bigger than I thought. You will appreciate that it is cheaper than staying in Boston itself. In other words it is worth the drive out.
