A mixup in room request was made good by accommodating us in every way. Comps were given for parking,breakfast and shuttles. Special shout to Leianne at the front desk for her generous and professional assistance. Very nice stay for the CTF event at Harvard.

Mediocre, not very clean. Front desk at check in was not very helpful. Additional $35 parking fee on top of the already overpriced room was an unpleasant surprise. Decent location, close enough to Fenway, couple mile walk along the river and passed some nice restaurants/bars

Staff was incredibly helpful and friendly - really made us feel welcome. To me that's the real asset of this hotel. Interior updates are very nice so don't be scared away by the exterior. We loved walking along the river to many of our destinations and also used the more than affordable shuttle to get to Harvard Square. A bit... More

They were one of the most affordable hotels, with the best location for the weekend of 4th of July. Great access to the Charles River, museums, sites, as well as great restaurants.

This hotel offers a good location with a friendly and helpful staff. From higher floors it offers a superb view of downtown Boston which was a marvelous benefit for the July 4 fireworks. it's quitter a walk to get to downtown Boston and probably 1/4 mile to the nearest T station. The facility needs some updating. Our bathroom had peeling... More

I stayed at this hotel for a week during a Harvard Institute. It was very clean, the staff was extremely helpful, and you are close to Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Whole Foods, and Trader Joes.

An updated and newly renovated Courtyard, this hotel provides a basic room "plus". The room came with a mini fridge and the Trader Joes and Whole Foods nearby allow you to buy snacks and beverages to have in your room.

Couldn't believe we found this place right on the Charles River at such a great price. Ample parking, great staff, modern, clean, comfortable and secure. Trader Joe's and Starbuck's are both next door. Parking was $35 a night, but for Boston that is probably cheap.
