Away from the sites in Cambridge. 10 minute walk to train station. I would not walk it at night as the area seems unsafe. Front desk very busy when we checked in. Clerk was very professional. Breakfast was pretty good.

We stayed in the HIE Cambridge, while taking time out to visit Boston. The hotel was a great choice and only a ten minute walk from the Lechmere "T" station. The hotel reception is simple and friendly, the staff are at hand if needed. The room, luckily for us as an upgrade, was very good and consisted of a king...

This was a very nice hotel. The room was spacious and had a mircowave, fridge, and Keurig. Breakfast was adequate and they had freshly baked warm cookies in the evening at the front desk. I am taking one star off because the rooms facing the main street are very noisy. As other reviewers suggest, ask for a room on the...

The front desk lady didn't help me although I was requested to approach front desk to verify my file details. She even didn't look into the systems asking me for my room number of name. Nothing. She left her station, leaving me to stand for nothing, refused later to be identified by her first name and didn't apologize for her...

We stayed here while on a college tour and we would definitely recommend this hotel! The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly and it was well located for our purposes. The complimentary breakfast and coffee were nice and the parking was free!

I have never written a Trip Advisor review before, but felt that I had to set the record straight with respect to this hotel. In sum, do not be deceived as I was into thinking that this hotel is a good value. A good value is a hotel that offers more at the same or lower price. While this hotel...
