Firstly – this hotel is not in the city center but that is not a bad thing! Depending on your walk speed it is a 5-10 minute walk to the Lechmere Green Line Station. This stop is an “end of line” stop so the rail runs very frequently into the city. The hotel is situated right near Twin City Plaza... More

Located a few blocks north of the Lechmere T stop which takes you into Boston. Free parking, but limited. We came in late on a Saturday night and had to park across the street in the overflow lot and basically got the last spot. Staff was friendly and helpful although understaffed at peak times. Clean and quiet rooms. Breakfast buffet... More

The hotel is just a block or two from the Lechmere T station. If you're driving they have parking as well. Our room was comfortable and quiet. They even served breakfast which was fine, not too fancy but enough to please everyone. The hotel is on the small side, the lobby is not someplace that you'd want to spend much... More

Hotels in the Boston area were booked or very expensive the night I was in town, so stayed at this Holiday Inn in Cambridge. Took a bus to So. Station and then subway to Lechmere Station – this is fairly straight forward if you don’t have much luggage. Onsite parking also looked fine. I was given a room on the... More

I had a prepaid reservation (including incidentals) at this hotel. They still required a credit card at check in (because the prepaid wouldn't apply to my account until I checked out...huh?) When I tried to enter my room, the security latch had somehow engaged the door. Rather than provide me with another room, they contacted maintenance to deal with the... More

The property is on par with most Holiday Inns - rooms are adequate, beds are softer than they should be, the sheets are from Wal Mart and the lobby is just large enough to accommodate those checking in. What you get is free parking which costs another $35-45 at all the other Cambridge hotels. So the $200 price point for... More

Stayed four days and found hotel good and clean. Near shopping area for room provisions. Short walk to the t line and galleria mall. A good option if u are OK staying outside central Boston and want a more cost effective stay.

My 11 year old daughter, her best friend, and I stayed here for one night. They changed our room to a suite - which was perfect for us. The parking is free and you are a short walk from the Boston Science Museum. The service was excellent and I would happily stay here again.

I thought this hotel offered good value - their rooms are comfortable, service warm, and located conveniently (5 mins drive to MIT). While the breakfast was self served and meant to be functional, it turned out to be pretty decent. They offer free parking too. Minor gripe - the lift is a little old and could use an upgrade.
