I stayed here one night while visiting my daughter, who is a student at Wellesley. My room was fine; small but perfectly clean and comfortable. The breakfast was good. The only problem was that I was at the end of a hallway and I could hear the washers and dryers going very early in the morning. If you think of... More

For what you pay to stay here, it is not worth it. First of all, the walls are super, super thin. The people next to us woke up at 4am and you could hear their conversations super clear. I thought hearing their conversations was bad enough at that hour, then they proceed to turn their tv on, very loudly. So... More

I was fortunate to not be paying the bill. However, I did stay here a few nights this past spring semester. The rooms were tired with old dorm room furniture. Thoughout the building, including in the rooms, there were old black and white photos of the Wellesley of the past. It was stale and depressing. I would not choose this... More

This little inn at the college overlooks a grand front yard to a beautiful lake with clusters of floating plants, bordered by lawns and lilacs. The rooms are very adequate with bathtubs (!) in each room, more utilitarian than luxurious, so you recall you are at a college in sort of fancy dorm rooms. Breakfast is sumptuous with bagels, brown... More

We recently stayed at the Wellesley College Club while visiting a daughter at Wellesley. We wanted to be close by, and on that score, the College Club is perfect. The campus is beautiful, too. Also on the good side, the place was very clean, ,and we had plenty of closet space. I also liked the old photos from Wellesley's past... More

Wellesley College has one of the most beautiful campuses in the country but like many things in the northeast, the hotel (and dorms) has not taken advantage of modern conveniences and updated. It's as if they are content to rest on the laurels of the Wellesley name. The rooms are dark, dated and drab. Food and welcome are even more... More

This hotel will make you feel like you are a student at Wellesley College, but are staying at a private home. Not your typical hotel, and certainly not a bed and breakfast, although breakfast was included, and it was very good. Quiet, nice subdued, classy room with plenty of closet space and a keurig coffee maker and free bottled water.... More

Had a great stay here, it is at the tip of Wellesley College's gorgeous campus. Great for nice strolls and also within walking distance to the town center with lots of shops and restaurants.

I don't know why Tripadvisor lists this under bed and breakfast as it is just as much a Hotel as the Babson Conference Center. For visitors to Wellesley this is the only accomodation nearby. I often stay in Cambridge, Boston or Natick and regret it. This is the place to stay. Multi language TV, Wifi, great breakfast and the views... More
