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.

I have stayed here several times when visiting my family at Harvard. It is about 1 mile away from Harvard Square - but right next to a strip mall with a movie theater and Whole Foods- and others. They were renovated about 1-2 years ago so its clean and neat. There is a shuttle that will take you to the... More

When my husband and I decided to go to Beantown for our 18th anniversary, we decided to book the BW Hotel Tria. We had stayed at this hotel last year and loved it's location to the Alewife T stop, the organic sushi restaurant in the plaza across the street, and the fact that it has a Starbucks inside the hotel....

my son just started as a freshman at Tufts University- for the next 4 years, and I will use this hotel as my home away from home! It is next door to a movie theatre and a grocery store with late hours, and across the street from a drug store and office supply store- so can pick up things he... More

Convenient location (although Googlemaps did not find it easily and we went the wrong way briefly on Routes 2 and 3 trying to find the hotel). The hotel was nice, clean and the front desk was very helpful. However, the walls are very thin. We stayed in room 129, and we could hear the next door television until at least... More

We stayed here two separate nights as book ends to a vacation. The accommodations were nice enough and clean. The staff was polite and friendly. The second time the room had a decent enough view but the first time we overlooked a rooftop generator. In addition, the main lamp did not work in the first room. But biggest complaint -... More
