Nowhere near as new as it looks.

Posted Apr 13, 2015
Pros: The morning breakfast was good, and the lady who served it was very nice. Done in the Chinese restaurant.
Cons: Decor. Smell. Widow repairs. Honesty. Cleanliness. Restaurant. Lighting and security in the very limited parking along the side.
Location: Across the park from the Charles and the boat docks. Around the corner from the Harvard Athletic complex and 5 to 10 minutes from Harvard Yard.
I had hopes that this was a clean Days property near Harvard. The hotel is tired and musty, and looks like it hasn't been updated since the 80's. The ceilings upstairs in the corridors are 7 ft which gives the place a closed in dark feeling. Window screens were torn. The beds were adequate enough. The bathroom was small, and the shampoo provided in the shower was ineffective. Upon arrival I was informed that a pizza restaurant I was hoping to patronize was only located in another area, and my informant at the front desk stressed he knew because he had grown up in that area. We were given the menu of another place close by, that I assume this gentleman had a relationship with. Checked online and found the spot I had been interested in was less than a half a mile from the hotel, and would deliver. When I mentioned this to the desk the following morning, she immediately indicated that the establishment In question was well known in the area, and that the one I had been given was poor. That night we decided to eat at the Chinese restaurant down in the lobby. That was the worst Chinese food I have ever had. The sauce for the spring rolls was artificially coloured pink, the bean sprout chow mein looked like a milky, soupy mush and the sesame chicken was significantly overcooked and had very little chicken, just breading. My sons steak, which was supposed to be a 12 oz ribeye, was a gristly piece of leather. The next morning the lobby clearly had not been cleaned or vacuumed.

Total dump

Posted Apr 7, 2015
The worst hands down experience my family ever had at a hotel. If I had the space to explain it all I would, but lets just say my stay was ruined by unruly loud guests, horrific smell and horrible staff. If I stayed for free I would want my $ back.

First bad experience

Posted Apr 4, 2015
Just awful. Noisy. It seems the "walls were thin". Isolated location. Difficult to access public transportation. OK during the day, but somewhat scary at night for someone not familiar with the area. One night-time employee was very understanding and helpful. I travel very frequently for work and sports-related activities and this was my first bad experience at a hotel.

hotel has a nice view

I like the hotel view to the river. I just don't like the fact that all the carpets look dirty, and that creates uncomfort to customers.

Decent hotel close to Harvard

The room was clean and the staff very responsive. However the bathroom in our suite was tiny. We had 5 people fighting for small space.

Not for Business Travelers

Posted Jan 17, 2015 on Hotels.com
I will never stay here again 1) Located in an "iffy" neighborhood 2) Stated they had high speed wi-fi. Couldn't even check email on their wifi is was so slow. It was by far the worst hotel wifi I have ever experienced. 3) It's a days inn, so the rooms had mold in the bathroom and an odd floral scent everywhere else in the hotel.

Good Location, Terrible Condition

Posted Dec 16, 2014
Where to begin… The room was just dirty. Stains on the sitting chairs, stains on the towels, floor looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in a few stays, you get the point. I didn't even want to use the shower since the ceiling, which was so close to me head with filthy. I could go on and on about this room but in a nutshell it was gross. It felt more like a college dorm room than a hotel.

Worth it.

Posted Dec 5, 2014 on Hotels.com
For the prices they get for hotels in this area, this hotel is worth it. The place was clean and has a nice Chinese restaurant in the lobby. That restaurant was packed on a Saturday night! The bathroom was worn out but worked. I got to watch a tube TV for the first time in a long time. The beds weren't too bad. HVAC worked fine.Staff was nice. Do It!
