Not as advertisedPosted Apr 14, 2014
Pros: Beds were comfortable. Seemed a bit short. At 5'10 my feet hung over the edge. Other than this, room was clean, quiet and acceptable for a short stay.
Cons: clean up the website and list the facility as it is available.
Location: not much in the immediate area of the hotel. if driving, there are parking spaces available. if going in to the city, cab fare can add up.
Hotel advertises an available gym/fitness room. None was available and not much of an explanation as to why. Room service was a bit abrupt on day of checkout. Although checkout was after 12n, there was a knock before 10a that morning. For events in Boston, cab fare to and from can add up and be expensive. Stayed here for a convention. If driving into Boston, this might be an inexpensive alternative. If not, would not recommend this as a possible place to stay.

Being close to city for the price was very good.Posted Apr 7, 2014
Pros: Proximity to city, price, parking.
Cons: New carpeting throughout.
For the price and its proximity to Boston, hotel filled the bill. Room was clean but the hotel had a bit of a food smell throughout, maybe because it has a Chinese restaurant in the lobby and the smell drifted up. Carpeting needs to be changed but found the bed very comfortable and sheets and bathroom clean. For my needs, short overnight stay near the city and I had a vehicle with me, the hotel was fine.

Days Hotel, Boston, MAPosted Mar 26, 2014

Cons: Communication of construction closures. All website & signs said there was a fitness center. We went to use it & were told it was under construction
Room was fine. Staff was accommodating. Room clean. Quiet. Good for overnight stay

Great if you like a long walk, or have a carPosted Mar 24, 2014
Pros: A nice clean place close enough to Harvard for my purposes.
Location: A long walk from the Harvard main campus. Closer, though not really close, to the Harvard Business School and some athletic facilities.
For me it was perfect. It was long way from almost everything. I had close to a half-hour walk every morning leaving the hotel, and close to a half-hour in the evening going back to it. I needed the exercise, badly. So I was happy. If it had been raining heavily one of the days I was there, I would have been much less pleased about having a hotel that was not close to anything. Of course if I had had a car with me, I would have thought of the hotel as close to a lot of things, rather than far away.

Not deserve its pricePosted Dec 8, 2013
Pros: I do not like it
There is something wrong with TV. Nobody can repair it at night, and it is still a problem before i left. The speed to connect wifi is very slow.

An overnight stayPosted Nov 19, 2013
This hotel was easy to find and pretty close to Cambridge. The front counter staff was helpful and excellent. The bathroom was nice and modern. I did not find the bed comfortable, and I can sleep anywhere. Some of the bedding was very worn and thread bare. I don't think that the blankets were washed prior as they smelled rancid, so I did not use them. I would have called someone regarding this, but it was very late and I had a four hour drive in the morning.

It's not what you think...Posted Nov 17, 2013
Take 6-7 trips to Cambridge a year and always stay at a competitor's site. Decided to try something this time. Stayed one night at this hotel and was extremely disappointed. It was dank, dark, and downright creepy. Claustrophobic hallways, low ceilings, dusty, peeling wallpaper and trim, outdated rooms, outdated televisions, old furniture and bedding. Slept on the edge of the bed praying for daylight to come soon so I could get out of that place! Checked out bright and early, and ran to my usual spot to check in there for the second night, like the Prodigal Son. Definitely would not do this hotel again!

Just Okay Hotel Near HarvardPosted Nov 14, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel is relatively no-frills and acceptable. Location is good for access to Harvard. It is priced reasonably, especially if a discount is available. If you have no real requirements and need a place to stay, this will suffice. Desk was pleasant and helpful.

Very close to Harvard PoolPosted Nov 12, 2013 on Hotels.com
The staff were very helpful. They did not have a King bed for us in the room when we arrived, although that is what was booked. Large suites tho and great location for attending athletic activities at Harvard University.
