Quiet and in a convenient location. Multiple Starbucks for coffee lovers and the shuttle/ subway station right outside.

Visiting daughter

Nice motel with attentive staff and convenient location to the T. It worked out very well for us to spend a short weekend with our daughter. Will keep this one in mind for future visits.

A good place to stay

Posted Sep 15, 2014
Check in was a breeze although other customers were quite rude to us. I felt the night staff was good. The location was perfect and the room was clean and made tidy by the housekeepers.

Close to all of our areas of interest.

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: The area where is located and the pillows
Cons: Air conditioning, toilets
Location: Near Harvard square and Boston
The good: The front desk staff was friendly and helpful, we were just staying for one night but arrived around 11pm and asked for a late check out, it was granted without any hassle. She also saved us the parking fee by informing us about the free Sunday meters around the hotel. The hotel is located close to all the areas we needed to visit in one day. Comfortable bed and pillows The not so good: The room itself was small and dated. The air conditioner didn't get cool enough, seemed like an older system and the toilet very noisy when flushed but we were exhausted and managed to get a good night sleep with the comfy pillows.

Hello Yoselin – I appreciated reading your observations about the hotel. I know it is important for future guests to read about your experience by it is also important for us to hear how we are performing. Our staff takes great pride in the service they provide and I am glad you were able to experience it. The Engineering department does perform preventative maintenance in all of our guestrooms on a regular basis. I will pass along your observations so they can look for those particular items in the future. I hope you were able to get everything done you needed to while in Cambridge. Please come back soon for more than 1 night. It is a great place to visit! Best wishes……

Nice hotel but expensive parking

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: The staff was very nice and helpful and the beds were comfortable. We had a nice view and it was easy to get the train into Boston.
Cons: I would let people know upfront what the parking situation and fees are.
The hotel was very nice and a great location to MIT and trains but parking cost $45 for the day with valet only. If we wanted to park next door in the public lot it was $40 for 3 hours or $45 for the day but if you took the car out you would have to pay again even in the same day. So therefore, you are forced to use the valet parking and pay the $45 for the day. If you need anything from the car after it then becomes a hassle. Also, breakfast was not included but offered for $20 pp.

Good location with good breakfast choices nearby

Posted Aug 18, 2014
Pros: Location.
Cons: The toilet flush is too loud.
Location: MIT stata building is a masterpiece of I.M.Pei. You must see it to realize the beauty of the architecture.
It's very close to the Kendall subway station, which is very convenient for touring Cambridge or downtown Boston. BBQ buffet on Thursday 5-9pm is good value. We stayed at 6th floor, but still can access the wifi from lobby.

Great Location

Posted Aug 18, 2014
Pros: The bed was comfortable, the room clean, location was good, staff was helpful.
Cons: Cost was a bit more than I am used to paying. A shuttle to Logan would be nice, though it is right on the Red Line, dragging bags around was a pain.
Location: The MIT campus is nearby. Harvard Square is a few stops away on the subway. Plenty of restaurants.
I spent only one night there. The staff was courteous and helpful. The location was right on the Red Line Subway so getting to Harvard and to Logan airport was easy.
