We were there just one night for a quick tourist stop and college visit. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Parking is free, which is a great value in Boston, and the T is just a short walk away. The rooms were modern and clean. Great place stay!

We visited Boston at the end of September, we were looking for a clean and close hotel to most of the attraction in Boston. After evaluating all possibility, we find this hotel located at 3 minutes walk of a train "T" station and 4 minutes walk to the museum of Science (not worth). With a Charlie pass, we were able...

The hotel is recently renovated, flat screens, modern furnishings, new beds. The hotel was full during our stay and our room was completely quiet, which was just perfect after a day of site seeing in Boston. Public transit is a short walk down the street, has you in downtown Boston in minutes. We had no issues with parking, mind you,... More

Stayed while doing business in Boston. Front desk staff, both Joe and Dana were wonderfully helpful, patient and professional in all respects. Room was modern, comfortable and had both refrigerator and microwave, nice amenities when staying for several days. Convenient access to T station; again hats off to Joe and Dana for walking me through how to navigate that system!... More

I was looking for a hotel close to the airport but not too expensive. Rates for this hotel are quite affordable compared to any hotels in Boston or nearer the airport.

I selected this location due to its proximity to the T Station and relatively reasonable cost for the area (though it was still quite costly…). The hotel itself appears to be a much older facility heavily remodeled. The lobby looks very fresh and to my surprise when I stepped into my room it too looked very modern and recently updated;...

Nice, value-for-money, practical hotel for business folks and leisure travelers alike. Located not too far from the Cambrdigeside Galleria mall which allows for quick shopping trips if you'd like. A medium shopping center near by contains Shaws groceries, Rite Aid pharmacy and the ubiquitous McDonald's. Rooms decently sized with no-nonsense practical amenities - restroom, coffee maker, microwave, fridge, free internet,... More
