I was satisfied by this property. Although I reserved a suite (and requested a high floor) and I'm a platinum member, I was given the 2nd floor and arrived too late to change. The breakfast was typical HIE but was fine. Free parking was a huge benefit and I was within walking distance to my meeting at MIT.

Great location and within walking distance to restaurants. The T is just two blocks away and very convenient. On sight parking is free, as well as the wifi! Excellent breakfast bar for patrons! Highly recommended.

Great location with a supermarket just 5 mins walk away and close proximity to subway station. Free wifi and free car park. Comfortable bed and very clean room. Hot and cold breakfast provided with lots of varieties. Free coffee and tea available whole day. Free cookies at night . This is what I would term as real American hospitality indeed... More

I have stayed there many times in the past when my favorite hotel was booked out, but ever since the rooms got refreshed, there is really no reason to go anywhere else. It's clean, it's safe and the breakfast is free, even though it's not the healthiest one. The beds are comfy and the staff is nice. Why paying 100USD... More

We stayed here based on the location and price. The room was spacious and well decorated. Parking was included and that's a big deal this winter (lots of snow). There were a couple of odd things about our stay that kept us from the 5*. First, we walked in and stood at the desk. The young man at the counter... More

Dear Scott_M_SubGuy - We appreciate your comments and are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. Your comment about our unattentive front desk agent did not go unnoticed and subsequently, that employee chose not to remain with the hotel. Thank you for choosing our location and we look forward to having you as a guest again soon. More

Very surprised by the quality of the rooms and amenities here. Very large room with everything you would expect inside and a heat lamp in the bathroom! Daily breakfast that would leave anyone satisfied (dozens of options and a pancake machine too)! Just a few minutes walk from the train station which will take you anywhere in the city (not... More

This hotel gives you more than most would and for a cheap let price. Free on site parking, excellent customer service, and an included breakfast buffet that had much more than I expected. The quality of food was great. The room was large and very clean. The king bed was the tiniest but hard but I'm just comparing that to... More
