5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here to do college visits as well as seeing our older daughter interning in Boston for the summer. The hotel is on the T's Green Line so getting around town is easy! We also found great restaurants within walking distance in the neighborhood near MIT. The Science Museum is also just a short walk away. About twenty minutes... More

Pull out mattress was horrible. Stayed at this hotel last year and was cleaner. This hotel is centrally located however it is dated. Need to be remodeled. Is highly priced. Will probably not stay here again.

Good location, only a few stops with subway to Boston city center. You can even walk. Standard Hampton Inn. No fuss, clean and an ok breakfast. Free parking. Good to arrive early for parking since spaces are narrow. Stayed for points, otherwise it seems really expensive for a Hampton Inn. But the again, you dont't need the car and can... More

Accommodated changes to my arrival and departure, despite being full. Parking garage a huge benefit, without additional charge. Friendly staff, assisted with baggage as I am disabled and unexpectedly traveling alone. Fresh breakfast, clean lobby and rooms. Location close to green line T stop. Recommended hotel, especially when compared to more expensive options.

Rooms a little dated. Definitely would be better equipped with the addition of a refrigerator. Some family members did not find the beds very comfortable Very good breakfast. Maid service not very thorough/complete

Based on the cost of this hotel, I was sort of disappointed. They promise garage parking but since we arrived later at night, the garage was full. In the room, there was nothing in terms of hotel information or info about the surrounding area. The comforters were super think and kept sliding off the beds are night long. However, the... More

Staff attitude was not one of helpfulness they were not exactly giving off the vibe of welcoming. Parking situation was very difficult with majority of the spaces requiring parallel parking between cement posts.

Nothing special here, just a predictable hotel experience that is usually decently priced with the basics. The location is not too far from downtown Boston. Just note the the small driveway is very difficult to use in front of the hotel. If you are not careful, you will run into either brick or other cars!
