We selected this hotel because of our pets. They are very, very pet friendly (they even have treats for the dogs at the front desk counter). They are right across the street from a walking path along a reservoir, very nice location. Would definitely stay there again.

What a place.... Clean, perfectly located just few minutes from Harvard Square. Spotless room, very good breakfast, nice beds. What else one wants from a hotel. Parking is $12, however even with a parking fee, this hotel is one great bargain in an extremely expensive Boston hotel market.

I stayed here with my family while visiting Boston and touring universities in the area. It is clean and decent (though nothing fancy) and the location convenient. The price seemed fair for the area. Alewife subway station is a 10 minute walk away and getting to the hotel is fairly easy (doesn't require driving through Boston). We booked online though...

Most hotels in the area were pricey while the rest looked old & grungy. To be honest, I would not typically book a room at a Best Western (as many of them only rate a 1 or 2 star) the Hotel Tria offered a fair price for the area. The photos were encouraging, amenities looked good, location was ideal &...

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...

“306, though it had it's own set of problems, was much quieter than our new room in 412. I would avoid this place altogether though.”
