We were here for two nights for my clinical experience for school. Had issued with payment. They stated that they tried to contact us. No phone call, no email, no message in our room. Get to the room and found out that our cards didn't work. It took thirty minutes of discussing our issues to get it all fixed. The...

Four of us stayed at this hotel but was just for sleeping because we stayed busy until late. Location is great and you are only a half mile from the inlbound red line subway train. There are a lot of conveniences located nearby if you want to just lounge around at some point. The hotel has free wifi and works...

Stayed here for two nights. Onsite self-parking $12 per night which is very reasonable. Wifi is free and good speed. Rooms are comfortable and adequate space. Everything you need. Breakfast is included and average as far as free hotel breakfasts go. There is a Starbucks attached. In and out of the hotel can be tricky since it's on a traffic...

I stay at this hotel whenever visiting Cambridge. Location is great and service is good. Walking distance to a number of convenience shopping areas and movie theater. Hot breakfast and a Starbucks in the lobby is a nice touch.

This is an average Best Western for an above average price. The room was okay, the staff were friendly and helpful. The free shuttle service will only take you to the subway once every hour on the hour and you have to book your return trip at ten minutes past the hour. But the walk is only 10 minutes so...

Stayed here 3 nights. Room was fine, no issues. It would be nice if there was a pool, but there isn't. So we went to the movie theater. Movie theater is within walking distance if you don't want to drive. Breakfast was included - you could make waffles, there is cereal, fruit, pre-made eggs and bacon or sausage, juices. It...

Hotel was clean and efficient with friendly staff. Restaurant on premise was very limited and by no means "full service" but they did a great job on the complimentary breakfast which my family enjoyed each day before heading out,. Location is not in the city but was on outskirt of Boston; hotel shuttle to/from train was used when needed to...

I like the free breakfast and.... wait, that's it. This is one of the worst hotels I've ever encountered. Bed: I stayed here for a week and the bed was SO incredibly terrible that I (no joke) had to go to the doctor when I got home to deal with the back pain. Room: What's impressive is what they've done...

My son and I stayed here while visiting colleges. It was chosen for its proximity to the schools and for the price. The hotel rooms were adequate as was the complimentary breakfast. Some staff members were friendly and helpful while others seemed like they didn't want to be there. Some of the equipment in the gym was broken. The worst...

We stayed here for two nights while visiting my brother in Cambridge MA. I was with my two kids, my mom and my cousin who was off for the week from med school. The hotel is in a very busy part of the city as far as retail and supermarket shopping goes which isn't a bad thing. The hotel itself...

“Avoid room 221 at all costs. It is the end room at elevator and stair access, over the hotel lobby. NO sound deadening whatsoever, noisy!”
