Everything in Cambridge is very near, great place to stay, reasonable price considering the area, staff very professional and they have free access to the Gold Gym that's 300m away fro the lobby. They have good breakfast

Great location. We dropped our daughter off for her first year at BU (graduate student) and we were able to drive back and forth to her apartment (near Fenway) in no time. We had a place to park our car and drove back and forth but if you prefer the T- station was within walking distance. Breakfast was average, room...

Great location for a walking tour of Cambridge. The location is just a few blocks from Cambridge Street where there are shops & restaurants. Nice to see a bit of the local residences rather than all hotels. Staff was very friendly & helpful with good suggestions for dinner and drinks.

It was very tough to find the right hotel in Boston. We were considering parking, location and breakfast! We were driving from NY so parking was really a big deal. This hotel offers free limited parking. The parking lot gets full easily but it was safe for us to park across the street if you are a hotel guest. It...

We went to this hotel as a semi-affordable room close to downtown. It's very odd getting in to the hotel parking lot. You have to actually go past the hotel then do a u-turn at the lights. We parked and went to look for a place to eat. There are a few sketchy places a few blocks away but otherwise...

I am so sorry to hear about your issues with our parking lots. This is something we are looking to find a good solution to in the future. It isn't often that both of our lots full, but when it does we understand the inconvenience this can cause for our guests. Please consider us again in the future.

We stayed 2 nights here while in Boston. The hotel is nice and convenient to the subway and bus station which is good for 2 reasons driving in this town is difficult at best and parking is worse. The hotel itself offers limited parking spaces. We decided to return the rental early and just use the transit systems or walk,...

Thank you for your review! I am very sorry about our shortcomings with the breakfast. This is something we are continuing to work on improving, including both our efficiency and quality for our guests. We do suggest our guests utilize the MBTA system. Driving downtown can be stressful and also expensive to find parking. Please come and join us again...
