          The inn was very quaint and the staff were helpful, the location convenient, but there were some things that were disappointing. The shower was pathetic, the towels super small. The breakfast was nothing more than cereal, store bought pastries, and stale bagels.

          Are there hair dryers in the rooms?

          I also suggest you call the Cambridge House. Another tip for you. If you want to insure you get a parking place in their lot arrive by 3P.M.
          How long is the walk from the nearest T station? Is there any restaurants on the way from the station?
