I liked the location - walked to subway line and there were a few restaurants nearby to grab some food. I read previous reviews and believed the parking would be free. I was charged something like $8/day to park in the mostly empty lot. Room was nice but nothing special. We went to a laundrymat about 4 blocks away and...

very nice room, great staff, comfortable beds/pillows. Free parking a plus, shuttle to Harvard Sq etc is great. Location next to Whole Foods & various restaurants which is great! Very easy walk to the subway station.

We're staying at this Best Western Plus hotel, but I'm not sure why it's listed as a Plus hotel. The picture and write up of this hotel are very deceiving; the fan running in the bathroom is very loud and cannot be turned off, the bed is so hard my hips hurt, no pillow tops here! Water from the shower...

One price was cited before arrival. Another was presented upon checkout. This feels like a scam. When asked about this, the clerk was quite dismissive, even rude. Perhaps more training is necessary? Perhaps more courtesy?

I love this hotel! It's so convenient to everything in Boston and free parking is greatly appreciated. They recently renovated the bedrooms and what a great face lift, very well appointed rooms. The beds are so comfortable and the pillows too, we slept very well. Located right next to Whole Foods, Panera and other stores makes it easy to grab...

My husband and I spent five days in the Cambridge/Boston area. This is a trip we usually make to visit friends and relatives. This was our first stay in Cambridge and we located close to the MBTA, which made it convenient for us to travel. I definitely will recommend this hotel!

This place is ideal for a weekend stay in Boston - away from the city crowd, sufficient parking and very comfortable rooms. The rooms are very quiet and impeccable, with all standard amenities. We got a really good night's sleep. Wi-fi is included, but did not work on my phone. The hotel itself has great decor, including a well stocked...

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...
