We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. As you have pointed out, our location is only three blocks from the T subway system, which makes visiting Boston and Cambridge so easy to do. Red Sox fans also have an easy time getting to the game from our hotel as well. Thank you for sharing your comments and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Very positive experience, and the staff was excellent. Breakfast had hot and cold options, and close to the Lechmere T stop. Would stay here again. They allowed us to check in early (11am), which was a complete and total blessing.

We, a family of two adults and a toddler stayed here for 2 nights. Semir (assistant manager) was exceptionally helpful. Clean rooms, bathroom, seemed recently renovated, flatscreen walmount TV, free breakfast included a lot of options and was fresh and superb. 3-4 blocks away from Lechmere T station, a quick ride to Boston city. The lobby area has couple of desktop computers and a printer for guest use if u need to print something quickly. This is a great location to explore BOTH Cambridge and Boston during the same visit. A pool is missing, Did not use the fitness center, if it has one!The service was outstanding considering the cost. Semir even proactively informed me about a document that I left in room and was very helpful to contact me and dispatch that to my home address by Fedex! I can not thank him enough! Surely going to stay here again whenever I am around Boston.

From the moment I made the reservation over the phone with Dana, I knew my family would have great service. We stayed for one week checking out colleges in the Boston area. Location was great as it was near the Green line train. Front desk gave us wonderful directions to schools and Fenway Park. Mark and the whole staff were awesome as each employee went over and above expected service. Free parking was a major plus as well as room size. Breakfast was fine and also free USA Today on a daily basis. When I couldn't print on the business center printer, front desk staff took care of my computer needs. As Mark went to my college, I knew he was a great guy. Semir, Jimmie, Ralph and rest of staff are incredible. When we travel to Boston again, we know where to stay. Keep up the great work and thanks for making our Boston visit truly remarkable.

As you saw during your stay, we attempt to make every guest feel like they are our most important visitor and we thank you for your kind words about our team, location and hotel. You were able to explore much of our city without using a car as you attended both a Red Sox game and visited several colleges. Please come back and visit us soon and Roll Wave!

Spent two nights here with the family while visiting Boston. Facility is clean and staff was helpful and friendly. Breakfast is standard HIE fare and was well stocked. Hotel is one block from a large grocery store, 3 blocks from the subway and 6 blocks from Galleria Mall, which is a Upper Deck Shuttle stop. Parking is free and there is an overflow lot across the street. Overall, good price for a clean, convenient location while visiting Boston.

Last Thanksgiving we visited our son who just recently moved to Boston. The price per night is the best in the area. Also the reviews on your site also made our decision to stay here much easier. Very impressed with the front desk area. Also the room was very nice and clean. The whole staff was very accommodating and friendly. We also enjoyed the morning buffet the food was delicious. So this year we are going coming up again and I just booked our room. I know that the room will be perfect. Can't wait for the upcoming trip.

Room Tip: Didn't have any problems with the room. I would say any floor any side would be fine.

Absolutely perfect...clean comfortable room...great staff and service...with absolutely perfect recommendations on how to enjoy the area...really great location that is close to both T-line and bus...and easy access if you care to spend your day walking the city.

Fresh coffee at your request...and plenty of room to park...even if you have to use the overflow lot directly across the street.

Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone staying in the area...and look forward to the next trip...
