We wanted accomodations convenient to the T as we would be going into Boston for several days for events at the TD Banknorth Garden and did not want to be driving in the city. The T is within easy walking distance, maybe 5 minutes from the hotel. Be sure to ask the T attendent for a Charlie card so you... More

Booked 2 rooms for 7 people (incl 3 small kids) and were able to get them right across the hall from each other. (Not always easy to do in a big city we've found.) Only 3 blocks from the Lechmere T Station, so it was incredibly convenient to downtown Boston. Rooms were roomy and very clean. Breakfast was pretty good,... More

The hotel is located near a very busy main road and the neighborhood is a bit sketchy. However, the service is warm, and the room was spacious and clean. Walkable distance to Lechmere T-station (about 10mn). Breakfast was included in the rate and we were told at check-in that it's from 6:30 to 9:30am (the service directory in the room... More

Having been on a three week road trip of the East Coast of the States, we finally got to Boston extremely tired and a bit wary of what we were going to expect having stayed in some crumb-y places by then. Overall, the hotel was lovely, cheap and cheerful which is exactly what we planned for. We wanted clean and... More

We were only there for one night to attend out son's wedding, and needed a place to stay. For Cambridge, the rates were surprisingly reasonable. The room was immaculate with a king size bed, coffee and tea in the room, and had a lovely bathroom. The fact that there was free parking, and a complimentary breakfast in the morning also... More

I found this hotel through Hotwire and saw that for the cost it was very well rated. I was not disappointed. I have no complaints with this hotel. Free breakfast was also a plus. The room I stayed in was small, but had everything I needed for my visit (I was there for a job interview). The room was clean... More

This hotel is a good value. For $106, my large, clean room included a desk and sofa. It had free Internet access, parking, newspaper and breakfast. Check in/out was fine. The neighborhood has nothing to offer a visitor, no restaurants, shopping or sights. It is a safe 5 minute walk to the MTA green line, which brings you to the... More

What a beautiful suite we had! I have spent 25 yrs in the hotel industry, but I was pleasantly surprised at our suite! CLEAN everywhere! The suites are beautifully appointed with subtle colors, a selection of pillows ( hard and soft), oversized desks, comfy club chairs, refrigerators, microwaves and coffeemakers. The bath is fitted with the new curved shower bars... More

This was a convenient hotel for visiting cambridge and boston and is much cheaper than staying in a downtown boston hotel. When I booked through the hotel the reservation clerk gave me inaccurate information. She told me that she was giving me a double bed room because if she gave me two queen beds I would lose the frig and... More

This is a good hotel, clean, beds are very comfortable. The front desk staff (Dan??) was phenominal, very accomodating and helpful with directions, recommendations, etc. They do give free parking and free breakfast, breakfast is nothing spectacular but certainly adequate to start the day. They offer cereal, yogurts, bagels and toast, plus some type of egg and meat item pre-cooked.... More
