A group of friends and myself went there for one night for an event in Boston. It is a nice, quite chain hotel. The staff were very helpful as we are not from MA at all. Very close to small restaurants, stores, banks and 7 minute walk from the train station. We are planning a weekend get away this time... More

This hotel is the best if you come to Cambridge. The hotel shuttle will drive you to Harvard Square or many other places, and the drivers are the best. The front desk staff was extremely nice and helpful. The coffee in the morning is good and so is the breakfast. The rooms are typical of a Best Western: clean, updated,... More

The room was comfortable. The staff most helpful. Loved the shuttle service. I would have loved the bar but arrived too late to enjoy it. Maybe it could stay open later. Breakfast was wonderful. Love that there is a Starbucks attached. Parking was available which was a great asset. My son loved the computers in the lobby.

Stayed here last year when we helped moved in our son to Harvard for his Masters program. Convenient. Close to restaurants, CVS pharmacy, Staples, a movie theater. Comfortable rooms with free parking and internet, and hot breakfast. The exterior and lobby area probably is overdue for updating, new paint, etc.

Very difficult to get to the Best Western. I had a problem with the night manager, she was abrasive and illogical. There was a Whole Food container in a drawer after having to change rooms. Do not be on the first floor, there is a crack house next door! Stick to the yogurt for breakfast.

This is a basic but fine chain hotel. I was only there for one night for work. It is on a busy road and next to a strip mall. If you don’t want to go out for dinner, Whole Foods is right next door. At breakfast I went for healthy and had the oatmeal which was fine but caved for... More

We liked our large, well-furnished room and parking that was free because we booked on line. The staff was accommodating, and breakfast was good. This hotel is not well situated for those who want to use public transport because the route one must walk to the train or bus is long and unpleasant.

This hotel is very convenient for working/playing in the Cambridge area. The property is fine, walking distance of whatever you need. What makes this hotel unique is the staff. From check-in to check-out they will all treat you like a friend and not just a paying guest.
