Stayed there 2 nights when attending a function for Bunker Hills CC. Convenient to the college and to the historic sites in Boston. No surprises (that's a good thing) with the hotel. Room was clean, beds comfortable, food was good and the staff was friendly.

We stayed at this Hampton Inn in Cambridge for four nights so that we could cover all the sights in the Boston area. The T station (Green Line, Lechmere) is a 5 minute walk. Press the pedestrian button at the traffic light on the sidewalk just a 1/2 block from the hotel (white stripe pedestrian crossing) and the light will...

We stayed for 2 nights to visit a bunch of Boston/Cambridge colleges. The free breakfast is terrific (the coffee is awful, but there's a Dunkin Donuts across the street :-)) Free parking with easy access to the car was awesome as well. The staff are lovely and the room was super clean and had everything we needed. They have a...

We live about an hour south of Boston but decided to stay for one night for a getaway which included a Red Sox game. Hotels are very expensive and parking can add a big expense.

Can't beat the location. Close to downtown and the colleges. Breakfast was just ok compared the many other Hampton inns I've stayed at. Staff weren't very friendly but it's how a lot of people are in the Northeast.

This is a nice, older Hampton Inn. The location was several miles from the Harvard campus and the area was not the best Cambridge had to offer, but it met our needs. If you stay here, have a car or plan on a cab ride (about $15.00 to Harvard Square).

The hotel is clean and the staff pleasant. However for $400 a night I would expect more. No fridge nor microwave in the room and the breakfast was not good. I ate elsewhere. It was clean and the people were nice. I simply expect more value. I have stayed at many Hilton Holtels for far less with way more value.
