“Just a perfect place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

We spent 3 days and 2 nights at Morrison House and we had a perfect stay. The room is clean and cozy and it provides everything you need. I must also say I got surprised, when I found out I didn't have any cotton swabs in my bag and found some in the bathroom (which I couldn't find in many very good places I stayed before).
The breakfast is one of the best parts of the stay, because we had it in a big table with other guests from all over the world and we had a great time chatting and getting to know more about each other cultures.
The hosts are very nice and give great tips about the city. And the cat. Well the cat just too cute to be true.

We stayed 4 nights in the Warren-Sparrow room on the main floor. The room was spacious and clean. The king bed was comfortable. The bathroom sparkled. This room includes 2 single murphy beds. I think that if 4 of you were using the room, you'd be tripping over each other. Breakfast is a cold continental meal with fresh muffins, jams, fresh bread, boiled eggs that you need to shell, a selection of cereals and of course milk, and yoghurt. The coffee, made in individual french-press pots, was excellent.

I appreciated the digital keypad approach to the front door and bedroom doors with individual codes for each guest. Very easy to deal with.

This B & B has 5 rooms but only 3 parking spots behind the house. The 2 overflow cars are given a pass to put in the car window and then need to find street parking which is not necessarily right in front of the house. This could annoy some of you.

We'd definitely stay here again.

The room was excellent with en suite bathroom. There was TV, rocking chair, very comfortable bed and a Murphy bed that was not needed for this visit. The hosts were friendly and helpful. There was a binder in the room with local eateries and cab service, etc. And the other guests were most charming with interesting stories. We would absolutely book rooms here in the future.

We enjoyed 6 nights at this B&B while visiting our daughter at Tufts. Location is perfect as it is a short walk to lively Davis Square and the T-station but also walking distance to the University. There are many different restaurants in the area and a cinema on the square.
Breakfast was delicious with different fresh fruit and home baked cakes every morning. We stayed in Davis room and our daughter in the Little Room next to it. Bathroom was down the hall and is only used by these two rooms. Three parking places are behind the house.
It was a great home-away from home for us and hope to be back sometime.

Absolutely great place to stay. Everything you want in a bed and breakfast . Quiet street right near Davis Square. Friendly people. Clean. Great breakfast. My son and I stayed in the room above the front door. The street noise was next to nothing after ten o'clock. Great value

Everything was so thoughtfully and carefully done, down to the smallest details. I felt cared for but in a very laid-back, friendly way. The location is incredible too - especially for being 2 seconds from the T, and it's easy to pop out for ice cream in Davis square.

I wish I lived at this B&B.

Although the web site says "free parking", be aware that this is not necessarily off street parking. You may be given a parking permit to put in your window for on street parking and then have to take pot luck for what's available on the street, often 1 1/2 to 2 blocks away. This is somewhat misleading, especially when you "reserve" a spot with your reservation.

We are now "black balled" from this B&B, because we questioned this practice. Hardly what you would learn in hospitality school.

We have three off-street parking, spaces, which is adequate 90% of the time, since many of our guests use public transportation. When we do have more than three guest cars we provide a permit to park on the street. We park our own car on the street before we ask a guest to do so. Somerville is a wonderful, though extremely densely populated city, and to have even three off-street parking spaces is a rarity.
