“Another dependable stay at a Hampton Inn - immediate vicinty is a bit sketch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Another Hampton Inn that meets dependable expectations. Clean, updated rooms and lobby; good breakfast (busy, but that's expected during college move-in weekend). The immediate neighborhood doesn't seem to be very "visit-friendly" at night; the manager persuaded me to stay in.

Stayed August 2013, traveled with family

Dear djlund999:

Thank you for taking the time to tell others about your recent visit to the Hampton Inn Boston/Cambridge. We're happy to hear you enjoyed your stay.

Our location in Cambridge, just 1.2 miles from downtown Boston and just minutes from the Museum of Science, CambridgeSide Galleria as well as countless restaurants, is a very safe neighborhood. Cambridge is consistently voted one of the top cities for walking. We hope during your next visit to the area you'll venture out and experience all there is to do and see so close to our front door!

Warm regards,

Lisa M. O'Neil

We spent two days in Boston attending a Red Sox game and doing a walking historical tour. This hotel's location was perfect. The room was a little smaller than the other Hampton Inns we have stayed at but was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. We plan to use this inn when visiting Boston in the future.

This hotel was perfectly situated for seeing the beautiful downtown area. It was close to the metro trains and easy to get around. The only down side is that the hotel has very few parking spaces and parking was a challenge.

This hotel was clean and quiet. Breakfast was good, and the staff (front desk, housekeeping, breakfast, and house man) were friendly and helpful. The Lechmere T stop is a block away, so getting into the city is a breeze. And parking is free, although the garage is small, so get in early to get a good spot. We would definitely stay here again.

We like this hotel because it is conveniently located across from Lechemere station and close to a decent mall. It is in a quieter part of Boston but close to a lot of the action. Very close to Harvard's campus.
