“Solid Hotel in Cambridge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

This is a good hotel. There are no restaurants close with the exception of the Cambridge Galleria which is a 5 minute drive or a 15 minute walk.
Rooms are clean and solid, but not spectacular. Staff is very friendly.
The only drawback is the small parking spaces underground. Overall, a solid recommendation.

Dear Jeff C:

Thank you for taking the time to write about your recent experience at the Hampton Inn Boston/Cambridge. We appreciate your thorough review.

I'm sorry you missed the great restaurants just minutes away on Cambridge Street. There are a number of restaurants to satisfy just about any craving all within a 5-15 minute walk from our front door!

Next time you're in the area, be sure to ask our Guest Service Representatives for their suggestions!

Warm regards,

Lisa M. O'Neil

Pros: good price, FREE PARKING< FREE WIFI< FREE BREAKFAST (worth @ least $60 at other Boston hotels), across the street from Lechmere station for the T and buses, walking distance to science museum & duck tours, we walked to North end, but can take T. Breakfast was good! Short walk to mall where there are some restaurants.

Cons: rooms are small, exercise room is really small and equipment needs some work(treadmill belts slipping), the area seems a little desolete, walls are thin

Room Tip: Walls are thin I would try for 7th floor so no one above you and only have to worry about the rooms...

Never having stayed at a Hampton Inn before this one definitely exceeded my expectations. Friendly helpful staff, clean room with ALL bedding washed after each guest, which I totally appreciate. Average to good breakfast. Parking included. Thought it was great.

Overall the room was clean. Rooms were small and need some renovation. Smelled a little moldy, but did not see any mold. I picked the hotel since it was close to MIT....but the truth is it isn't walking distace especially at night since the area didn't feel safe to me. No real "nice" place to eat dinner that was close by so I ended up ordering Pizza to my room. Unless you have a car, or unlimited taxi money think twice about this place. I paid $159 plus tax and felt it was expensivem for what they give you.

This hotel may not look like much from the outside and it may not be where the action is in Boston, but it is my new go-to hotel when I visit Boston. Staff is very friendly, from the second you walk in to after you check out. The rooms are extremely clean, and comfortable. The television channels you get (although not a deciding factor) were great (AMC HD, HBO HD, etc..). Parking was free, and so were WiFi and probably the best hotel breakfast you can ask for.

Overall a great stay, and a guaranteed repeat.

If you like Hampton Inns then you'll be happy with this one. It has exactly what you expect, and at a reasonable price. This is the first hotel I've ever stayed in that makes the point of telling you the duvet is washed daily. I chose it for its convenience to mass transit, as the MBTA is just a block away. The neighborhood is nothing to speak of, and if you don't have a car you'll need to walk elsewhere, or rely on a taxi or the MBTA for that--since there aren't restaurants that are convenient to the hotel.
