Hampton Inn Boston / Cambridge

Reviewed March 19, 2014

Overall the hotel is nice, clean and offers a decent breakfast. The website is misleading and implies that parking is guaranteed, but I spent a whole evening shuffling my car from one space to another to avoid a ticket - hated this. Make sure you have a back-up plan for parking if you go here. However, the proximity to the green line (T) can't be beat.

I do apologize you experienced trouble with parking. We do have complimentary underground parking on site for our guests (one vehicle per guest room) and if a space wasn't found, our team would have been more than happy to assist with locating one.

Had a parking garage which was really convenient, but it was not locked or gated. Rooms smelled old and musty . In a somewhat sketchy area so dont go walking around alone at night. There is no view and it is a hotel on a major road. The entrance is very easy to miss . On whole it was just average

This hotel has great staff and is two stops on the T from the TD Garden North. It's conveniently located to Kenmore Square and the T. The hotel is clean, it has free breakfast and free parking. The rooms are small and clean. It suited our needs. We have stayed at Hampton Inns in Lenox, Ma. and Saratoga Springs, N.Y. The food and the service are similar. These other two properties are much nicer, but they aren't in Boston/Cambridge. we would stay at the Hampton Inn Boston/Cambridge again.

I have stayed in at least 7 Hampton Inns in the past year all over the country, assumed this hotel would be just like the others. I was wrong. Positives: clean room, clean bathroom, quick service when I called the front desk because the smoke detector needed a new battery. Negatives: parking garage is AWFUL....we got to hotel at 10:00 pm and I was able to pull into garage but had no warning that it would end and I would be stuck for 1/2 hour trying to back myself out of a very small space because cars are parked all over. We lucked out when someone left and I was able to squeeze in to that last spot in the garage. Rooms are freezing. Desk attendant told me to use wall thermostat which I did putting it up to 74. Room never climbed above 65 our entire stay (which luckily was only for 1 night). Location of hotel is not great. I would not stay here again.

An hotel with a very good service and great location if you travel by car. It is very accessible close to public transportation (3 stops to Boston), a shopping mall and with free parking. ideal to discover Boston and its surrondings!

We enjoyed the proximity of the Hamton Inn Canbridge as we walked to and from the Bruins game. The staff were very helpful informing us of attractions in the area and provided maps. We appreciated parking the car in the hotel garage and enjoying the city on foot.

The Hampton Inn in Cambridge was a great find! Only 1 mile from the Garden, T stop right across the street and complimentary parking and breakfast with our stay. The staff were also very friendly and helpful giving directions around Boston. Highly recommend!
