This hotel is not much to look at from the outside, but, the inside is much better. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean, and offered a small refrigerator and a comfortable chair. The beds were comfortable, though not fabulous. The breakfast was typical for a Best Western, waffles, eggs, fruit, etc. And... More

Room was nice and staff were excellent. We enjoyed the included breakfast (eggs, sausage, some fruit, cereal, breads, etc). We also used the free courtesy van to Harvard Square. Another time we returned by Subway (red line) and had a 1/4 mile walk to the hotel. Starbucks in hotel. Dunkin Doughnuts, liquor store, Whole Foods, and other shops next door.... More

This hotel was extremely well-appointed and in a perfect location for my activities while in the Boston area for visiting my adult children as well as tend to personal affairs. The selections for breakfast were very good.

My son was going to MIT for the weekend to take some classes. Not wanting to be too far away from the school, and needing to bring my two small dogs along, I started on my quest for a hotel room. I happened upon this one. With taxes & fees, it was just over $250.00 for the night. For 1... More

Good, basic lodging in a convenient location (near Cambridge, the T at Alewife Station, only 45 minutes taxi drive to Logan airport). Very nice breakfast (Waffles are excellent) with helpful, friendly staff. Check-in and check-out were

I've stayed here three times now while visiting family. This time the most outstanding feature was the price - for a non-cancellable reservation the week of Thanksgiving (!) I paid 119/night including all fees and taxes, booking through TripAdvisor. Besides that, the rooms are very clean and comfortable, the location is outstanding - next to a small shopping mall with...

Had a nice stay at the Best Western while visiting Lesley University. They were kind enough to let us check in a little early, had free parking, a shuttle that dropped us off and picked us up right at the school, free breakfast. Helpful with directions and nearby places to eat. The room was clean and perfect for what we... More

I needed to find an inexpensive hotel in Cambridge and was pleasantly surprised by the price of Hotel Tria. Though not posh, it was adequate. It was clean and comfortable and certainly well priced. The front desk staff could use some training however, they are not very friendly. I called before I booked a room to see if they had... More
