Nice location but the Hotel smelled like Chinese food. The desk chair in the room was so old, we were afraid it was going to break when sitting on it.

Ok but Not a good value for your money.

Stayed during Harvard homecoming weekend. Rates were incredibly high for the hotel. Our experience was just ok.

There is a reason it is cheaper

Posted Jun 2, 2015
Pros: The price
Hotels in the area are expensive, when there is a graduation or other major university function they can be prohibitive. We booked on short notice as we needed more than one room, price was the issue. Few amenities but the room was clean. Bathrooms, very clean. Not convenient to much of anything and when we arrived at 11pm, the restaurant and bar were closed. Only option was to order in pizza. That said, the staff were pleasant enough.

Not worth the money

Posted May 17, 2015
Pros: Location. It made for easy access to the city without the congestion.
Cons: Everything. This hotel needs a makeover. The bathrooms were old, there was trash in the lobby, the furniture in the lobby was stained.
Boston hotels inflate their prices during graduation week. For $250 this hotel is not worth it. The restaurant located in the hotel Joyful Garden was dirty and I got food poisoning. This hotel was more like a Red Roof Motel than a hotel.

Decent place to sleep for the night.

Posted May 15, 2015
Pros: The staff are kind and helpful. I appreciate the baskets in the room. One with some snacks, another with extra soaps, shampoos. blow dryer, iron.
Cons: Condition of some furniture, shower.
Location: I was only there one night, but the hotel doesn't seem to be located in the best area of Boston.
While the staff at Days Hotel Boston/Cambridge were kind and helpful, my overall impression is that the hotel needs to update its facilities. I found the shower difficult to use, and to turn off. The fixtures may be wearing out. The dining room where I had breakfast was pleasant and the waiter was very nice. The food was good, but the coffee was luke warm rather than hot.

Don't speed on the street, it is a speed trap!

Posted May 7, 2015
Pros: Being so close to the park
Cons: Attitude of Diane.
Location: The park, very nice
The gal at the counter was not nice and would not allow early check in, so at three there was a huge line. The night manager was nice and when I needed him to do something, he did it. The day guy at the restaurant was nice. It is easy to get over to the park for a nice walk.

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.
