We have stayed at this hotel a few times now, when heading into Boston for an event. The location is perfect; just a short walk to Alewife. The rooms are clean and comfortable. And the staff is always very cordial.

The hotel facility is quite old and out of date. I just cannot believe it is a ‘plus’ hotel with dirty and old carpets, smelly room and expansive ($180). The breakfast was typical best western breakfast, but same food every morning. Will not stay in this hotel again.

Good value for your money, friendly staff, and free shuttle to Harvard Square make this a great choice for your visit to Cambridge. Not only that, but a delicious complimentary hot breakfast and free in-room internet make this my favorite place near Harvard Square. Hit up the Ethiopian food at the nearby (walking distance) Casbah restaurant while you are there.... More

Close to Harvard. Grocery stores, drug stores, liquor stores, movie theatres in short walking distance. Good free shuttle service to subway stations. Friendly staff. Good breakfast. Great fast food sandwich shop next door. Room was clean and comfortable, but décor and carpets a bit aged.

Stayed for 3 nights. Excellent location for walking to Davis or Harvard Square, or using the T at Alewife. Lots of amenities nearby. Stay was comfortable (nice beds, room décor). Breakfast was great. Staff was very nice. Will stay again.

I stayed for one night and the hotel was convenient for the workshop I was attending: less than ten-minute walk. The hotel is comfortable and I was especially fortunate in being assigned a room for handicapped so had an extra large room and large bathroom. All furnishings and amenities were in excellent condition, internet was fine and free, TV channel... More

Clean facility. Hotel is in good location for access to Cambridge schools. Friendly staff at front desk. Very good breakfast (complimentary). Only big problem was that Internet did not wor. Overall experience satisfactory except for Internet.

Met all my expectations. Staff were courteous, friendly and very polite, really made a warm welcome despite the cold weather. I would stay again and I am happy I stayed there. Like I said the best hotel ever.

Advantages: I believe this hotel was newly renovated. The bed was new and comfortable. The heat was quiet, as was the room overall. There is a fridge and microwave. The towels were soft. Husband reported that the fitness room was cold (as I like it). Starbucks is in the building and also plentiful 24 hour coffee in the lobby. Breakfast... More

I booked this hotel for my boyfriend and I to spend our last night together before he had to fly back to Canada the next morning as I am currently working in the States. It started out terrible with the front desk service. We checked in, in the evening and it was a rude Russian woman at the front desk.... More
