          The front desk staff was friendly and helpful in helping us select a place for dinner.

          Room was worn out. Bathroom was dirty.

        • Group of friends

          I thought that the staff at the hotel were extremely helpful in responding to questions about restaurant choices, etc.

          Size of Room---Service was great

          The noise from the street. Instead of bar soap I like bath gel. The trip to TD Garden was listed as 1 mile--That is not walking--maybe b the T

          The first room we were assigned to had beer cans in rubbish and appeared someone had laid on the bed and watch TV after the bed was made up. We told the front desk and we were immediately moved to a clean room and offered several apologies for any inconvenience. I appreciated the help very, very much.

        • Single
          7.0

          Trash under the bed and very obviously stained window curtains. Also had a handicapped room. Not sure if it was because of the price but a normal shower would have been nice.

        • Older travelers

          I was dissapointed that there was not mention that the entire subway station that made the hotel acessible was closed and it wasn't mentioned anywhere when booking. Also the area was alot rougher than it was suggested and ther was no where close to walk and eat. Location was terrible and management must not be good because it took alot to get the front of the house to even smile at you and at 200+ a night a hello goodbye would be nice.

        • Older travelers
          5.0

          Very polite and friendly staff but uttery ignorant about touristic info..Excellent for backpackers only. For the money charged one can stay in a much better hotel.

        • Group of friends
          6.6

          The room was quite nice and clean, as good as I expected. Enjoyed the view from the eighth floor. The rate was high but better than staying closer to Harvard Square.

          I booked a room with two queen beds and called to let them know I would arrive late. Still, when I arrived, I was told all the rooms with two beds were taken and the rule was "first come, first served." We had to take a suite with one bed and a pullout couch. The attendant eventually found us a room with two beds, after we argued, but gave the impression that she was helping us out, rather than getting us the room we had reserved. This was disappointing, to say the least. The beds were comfortable but the linens were rough.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          Great room design with easy access to electrical outlets. Great shower. Easy walk to the subway station for access to downtown Boston.

          Disappointed in the processed food breakfast selections but overall the hotel was good for the money and a great location for easy access to downtown Boston.

        • Family with children
          6.4

          Near the Boston t Green Line. Parking.

          The lack of isolation of the room. Noisy neighbors but more importantly, cold air entering in the room via the air conditioning. With a 6-month children, that sucks ! He slept with us in the bed. Hotel was no vacant, we couldn't change room.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          We were there for a three-day swim-dive event at mit, and it was very convenient, about a five minute drive, pretty much a straight shot. The room was very clean and comfortable, the shower was hot, and there was an in-room refrigerator & microwave. The price was right, the parking was free, and so was the breakfast - also had good coffee. Very acceptable and we'd stay there again. No complaints!

          The free wifi can be very slow. I had strong signal in my room and no problems connecting to wifi, the internet bandwidth just made basic web surfing a struggle especially in evening hours when I needed to get work done. Early mornings had totally acceptable internet performance.

        • Family with children
          8.2

          Close to subway and freeway access

          No onsite laundry, nearest laundomat one mile away on Cambridge Street.

        • Single
          7.8

          Location was great for somewhere right outside Boston. Easy access to both Cambridge and a short t ride to the city.

          The night attendant was very polite but looked very unprofessional. Gives a general bad impression when you see someone with thier shirt tucked out, tie undone, and not smiling.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          It was comfortable and we had everything we needed. The location was convenient, near a t stop in Boston.

          I was surprised that there was no option to be "green" and avoid changing towels every day
