We stayed here while visiting our daughter for parent's weekend at Tufts university. Location is good but the accommodations are average. Old building with a musty interior. Continental breakfast was available but nothing fancy. Parking is free and that's a plus given the location. I'd probably find another place for our next visit.

From walking up the steps on the porch to the morning we checked out everything about this B&B was good. The welcome was friendly and the staff very helpful. Despite the decor in the dining room (which was open 24/7 and where you get a coffee anytime day or night) being a little dark and dated the breakfast was excellent... More

We chose this hotel based primarily on free parking. Although we didn't experience any problems with this since we got there early in the day, there didn't seem to be nearly enough spaces for the number of rooms. We were assigned to the building next to the one where you go to check in, and our room was very plain,... More

I picked this hotel for its location. Easy walk or short bus ride to appointments. Old buildings well maintained on a busy street but get a room in back or on the side and it is quiet. Large room but cramped bathrooms. Pleasant and helpful staff. Good for someone on a budget as hotels in this area are very expensive.... More

The inn was very quaint and the staff were helpful, the location convenient, but there were some things that were disappointing. The shower was pathetic, the towels super small. The breakfast was nothing more than cereal, store bought pastries, and stale bagels.

I have stayed here several times over the years , and would again without question. Not only is it located half a block from a bus stop with regular connections, it's only about three blocks to a red line subway station. A trendy grocery store is across the street. Lots of restaurant options within a five minute walk. The accommodation... More

This is a cute house in a great location within walking distance to Harvard square. There are plenty I restaurants a and nice, safe place to walk around in the evening. The accommodations were just ok. The room was tiny. I expected small and quaint, B&B style, but this room was so small my husband could almost touch both sides... More

Cambridge is expensive, so I was not expecting too much. The entire building is decorated in the 20's style. Slow music plays in the background in the dinning room. 10 min walk to the red line station. Some rooms look better than others. I unfortunately was assigned to an attic room. The ceiling is super low. If you are over... More

We have stayed here numerous times over the last 6 years. The location for Tufts University is hard to beat but it is at best described as a quirky place. Rooms-tiny. Towels-small. Breakfast-store bought and nothing special. Price-not tiny. Still it has it unique charm. It may just not be right for you.
