This a lovely "bed and breakfast" that offers so much more than what's usual for this kind of accomodation. The rooms are clean and very comfortable, and the food is marvelous. The people of the staff are very polite, cheerful and helpful. I'd certainly stay in here again!

A small B & B housed in beautifully restored buildings located within two stops of Porter Square and the T- what's not to like? The inn has free parking but its proximity to the T meant we could travel all around town without the hassle of driving in Boston and Cambridge. Our suite was very fully furnished with the most...

I spent 3 nights at this lovely hotel as part of a business trip to the States. The building itself, the room and everything else about it were perfect. Definitely somewhere for people who like a bit of real personalised character in a hotel as opposed to a generic chain. This hotel is really perfect for couples or families visiting... More

We have just returned from a three night stay at this delightful Inn. We were in Cambridge for a wedding and the Mary Prentiss Inn was the perfect setting for family and friends to congregate, recoup and visit. Breakfast, and happy hour were enjoyed on the large, beautifully landscaped private deck that runs behind the Inn and was also the... More

Beautiful old house turned into a well kept and run Inn. The room was very comfortable and cozy and the staff very friendly and pampering. A great place for a couple. Good location and walking distance to many attractions or Metro if needed

The small hotel is nice and located not far from Harvard. The rooms are small and pretty nice, bathrooms need renovation, breakfast is tasty and reasonable. The biggest problem is accessibility, there is no elevator and guests have to use narrow stairs. The hotel needs elevator if owners want to be receptive to people with disabilities.

Love to stay in a bed and breakfast, especially when recommended by a friend. The Mary Prentiss is beautifully restored, quiet and run by helpful staff. Our room was small but lovely. Breakfast was a little slow to arrive, but simple and satisfying. Certainly demands a return visit, if only to try one of the other rooms!

Our family of three (2 adults and teenaged daughter) had a lovely stay in late June 2016, playing tourist for a few days. We stayed in Room 13, with a comfy Queen Sized bed in the loft and a pullout couch on the main floor. It was quiet, clean, airy and clean. The compact semi-kitchen was great to store and... More
