Good Location. Near train station. Shuttle available to train station or you can walk there. Close to shopping. Too close to round about and must be very careful going in and out. Breakfast was good. Lots of seating area. Starbucks in adjacent property. Lots of parking in parking lot.

The hotel itself was nice with comfortable beds. The breakfast was good (except for the scrambled eggs). There was a shuttle to the T or to Harvard Square every half hour. The hotel itself is kind off in the middle of no where. However there was a Starbucks attached to the hotel. There was free parking.

At first glance you're not sure if you picked the right place. Then you start to realize, it's a great location surrounded by all your needs. A place to run that beautiful, a great neighborhood vibe that you can walk to, and a free breakfast!

Good hotel on a budget. Excellent breakfast buffet and shuttle to Harvard Square. Most front desk staff was helpful and attentive. One exception: A lady at the front desk, chunky, strawberry blonde, tattoo on her arm above her elbow was curt and disinterested in my requests. I had flown all night to get to Boston, arrived early Thursday August 3.... More

This hotel is in a strip mall off the side of a highway. It is in the same strip mall as a Whole Foods and a pizza place. Our room was small and the bathroom looked like the wall was falling apart. We booked here for a visit to Harvard, and were lured by the shuttle service. BEWARE! It only... More

I would give this hotel a lower score but feel bad for the staff. The front desk staff were very kind. The hotel is just plain pitiful. Here is a brief list. A clogged shower that creates a 3" lake that you stand in while showering. A clogged sink that fills with water if you wash your hands or brush... More

Would have given a 3 if it weren't for the $181.97 charged to my card for no apparent reason. This is strictly a budget hotel, good for business travelers. If you are staying here to experience Boston, spend some more and get a better location. Really disappointed that they charged my card for no reason, as I stay in this... More

The only positive aspect was the shuttle to Harvard. Other than that, the hotel should not have been charging over $100 per night for what they provided. When we used the microwave, the TV stopped working and it took hours to the problem resolved.

Great customer service at check in. Friendly, informative and efficient. Room, clean and tidy with plenty of room. No restaurant for evening meal as they were in the process of changing contracts. Good breakfast. Suggest an Uber from the main train station if carrying large bags. Short walk to Alewife Station if going back in unladen.
