It's tough to find a reasonably priced room in Cambridge. This location is handy for Harvard and BC but aside from that it is sorely lacking-- The hallways sadly remind us of a nursing home odor-- The water pressure is weak-- There wasn't any Kleenex-- The cable cord had been ripped from the tv and had gone curiously unnoticed-- The...

Great location, walking distance from the T (they offer shuttle service). Food and several stores within walk-in distance. The rooms are clean the staff is amazing. Front desk staff (specially William) and driver (Randy) are super friendly and attentive. I would have given them a 5 star if not for the beds and pillows. They need to be replaced asap.... More

This is the first hostel I stay in in the US. Compared to my experience in Europe, this is a bad hotel (much word than many hostel in Europe), however I cannot compare with american standards. To begin with there was a really weird smell in the hotels all the time and we stayed there for 5 night (we did... More

Nice and well run hotel. Older facilities but well kept, breakfast was not the best but enough options for the morning and Starbucks is in the building (not affiliated with the hotel, so cannot charge room). A little expensive - but everything cost more there. VERY NICE PEOPLE! And great location

If you are arriving late, eat somewhere first. I arrived on a Sunday evening (9:45) and I know most hotel restaurants don't stay open late but there is nothing else around either. The few pamphlets they provided for places that deliver and were open....no one was answering the phone. After 8 hours of traveling and no time to get to... More

Boston is expensive. $250 Inc. tax for a room is tough. Room was clean. Breakfast has eggs, sausage, and waffles. Alewife station is only 1/2 mile away, but their van only goes there once an hour (also Harvard Square). No hair dryer, cheap shampoo and soap. Really for $250? Staff was courteous. Movie theater within walking distance. Starbucks on property.

Fast elevators; excellent free breakfast choices; Jennifer, the general manager, works hard making sure every guest is pleased with this hotel choice. The complimentary cookies are the best! The king bed room's bathroom is spacious. There is a Whole Foods next door that has a market and if you stop at customer service with your room key, you get a... More

The floors in my home were being redone and I needed a place to stay with my cat for 4 nights/days. This hotel met my needs being close to my home and that I was able to stay with the cat. The hotel manager and her staff were very nice and extremely helpful in managing the cat's needs and mine... More

The location of the hotel is perfect, just few steps to the subway and the hotel offers shuttles. The personal is very kind and helpful. The parking is normal and you have to pay twelve dollars daily although you park no the street. The rooms are a little old and the carpets are not clean.

The Best Western Plus Hotel Tria is located in a convenient area, not too far from Boston. Plus, the shuttle service brings you right in the middle of the action, namely Harvard Square. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful during our 3-day vacation. The room was cleaned and the breakfast was very good. I would definitely recommend this hotel... More
