Somewhat updated from 2 yrs ago when we stayed there last. New bath fixtures, so that helped. Stil serves powdered eggs for breakfast, that are very un-appetizing. Our room was not cleaned or serviced during our 3 day stay. High price for what you get, maybe it is the Boston area in general, but we've gotten better value elsewhere for... More

My daughter and I traveled to Boston for college visits in September, and struggled to find a hotel room in the Boston or Cambridge area under 300 a night. We found Hotel Tria, and thought, "well, we can certainly save money staying here, not sure how nice a hotel this may be, but let's give it a try." A pleasant... More

Very good experience at this hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. It's on a busy road of strip males, but it's very near all the places we wanted to visit. And one of the best aspects of the hotel was the availability of a shuttle van that ran a few times per hour. We were able to get rides... More

We stayed here for 4 consecutive days and have no complaints. The Hotel is located near to the Alewife T-station around 0.5 miles. The best part is that they provide a shuttle service to two different T-stations. So even if you do not have a car its not a problem. They also provide a pick up service from the station.... More

Hotel was good, far from main tourist attractions but close to metro station, so downtown was just half an hour away. Staff was friendly, breakfast was professional, room was clean. Two grocery shops are within a minute walking distance. Only downside (mainly because I was there for business) was the slow internet.

This is my second stay here; this time for a personal trip (last time was a business trip). We chose it because it was one of the cheapest hotels in the Cambridge area. We arrived very late (1 AM). The desk was staffed and we were attended promptly. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The room was on the... More

Hotel prices in and around Boston are extortionate. This hotel is reasonably priced for the location but don't expect the Taj Mahal. They do provide a complimentary shuttle to Harvard square and Alewife station. It runs every hour and you have to reserve in advance. It's about a 25 minute walk to Harvard so the shuttle is a great extra.... More

I stayed at this hotel in August. From the start the service was simply terrible, the receptionist was not very interested in answering my questions and sent me twice to two different closed restaurants. He did not even bother to find out if they were closed and I had to walk twice in the evening and hungry to closed restaurants... More

Reasonably priced & special rating when visiting local colleges. Do not eat at the bar/restaurant….poor quality & overpriced. Breakfast is good & has good hours. Rooms are small & standard. Had very loud guests. Conveniently located by Alewife T Station (within walking distance)…we rolled our luggage from the station to hotel, no problem.
