Older well maintained property except for elevator which had expired certificate and groaned several times on the way down. Good quality mattress and shower, blackout curtain. Breakfast was usual HIX and generous; warm cookies were served at dinnertime checkin. We did not have a problem finding parking on the premises. Room was roomy and had plenty of lights and outlets...

Very nice hotel with great amenities. Microwave, in room coffeemaker, ironing board and iron, great buffet breakfast with 24 hour coffee available in the lobby. Close to the T and the Science Museum and duck boats. Supermarket was within walking distance, great pizza and sandwich shop right around the corner. We were in Boston for a family wedding.

I stayed at the hotel for 10 days in April. The hotel is centrally located with easy access to both the MIT and Harvard campuses. There are a few big malls and shopping arcades within 500 m - 700 m of the hotel, so getting essentials is very convenient. The rooms (especially the ones with twin beds) are large, airy... More

Room was clean, microwave, refrigerator, coffee and tea service, free taxi to hospital. Free parking. Not a great location, but a nearby Star market had a nice hot/cold bar. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Stayed here either side of a trip to Cape Cod for a wedding, situated not far past the science museum, and and walkable into Boston itself. Price included Breakfast which was very good, and coffee was available all day. also fridge and coffee facilties in room, no problem taking milk from breakfast upto room if required. I would stay again.

This hotel more than meets up with previous reviews we had read. It isn't in the city centre, but is very accessible via the T, which is about an 8 minute walk away. The trains run frequently and in less that 10 minutes you are in Boston City centre. You can also catch the 69 bus from close by and... More

Took my family of 5 to Boston for our first visit to this beautiful city and the staff @ this hotel was AMAZING! Rooms and the hotel were spotless, and the location put us close enough to everything we wanted to see and do in Boston and surrounding areas. Limited parking is the only negative, however walking across the street... More

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
