Nice hotel, friendly staff, the only problem is that the walls are too thin, but other than that I enjoyed my staying...If you are looking for a hotel to just spend the night, this is probably the one.

Nice character, better location

Posted Jun 11, 2015
Being able to get a room for less than 150$ on graduation weekend was awesome--if you don't care about having a ton of space and a luxurious room, which I didn't, this is a great place. The common areas have a lot of character and are easily accessible, the breakfast is quite pleasant, and the inn is a great place to use as a home base for a cambridge weekend. The room was perfectly comfy, but small, and definitely could not fit a second person. The shared bathrooms worked out fine, and are actually quite homey.

Mmmmm.......

Cons: ELEVETORS!
The parking lot was terrible. The room was on flight 4, no elevators, and the room didn't have the ac working because outside was cool, but inside was stuffy. We wouldn't recommend this hotel to anybody. If you're an athlete and can take 4 floors up, with suitcases, then it will be suitable.

Walking distance to Harvard Square.

Posted Jun 1, 2015
Pluses - 1- Very convenient to Harvard Square, restaurants, theater and several colleges 2- great breakfast and home made baked goods during the day 3- very friendly and accommodating staff 4- free guest parking which is a huge plus in Cambridge Minuses - 1- Mattress VERY Firm. 2- not all rooms have a bathroom 3- Rooms are not insulated well so noise carries from hall and neighboring rooms. 4- Lots of stairs! Our room was on the 4th floor so 4 flights between bedroom and breakfast room in the basement:)

A devotedly green B&B: Bug or feature?

Posted May 29, 2015
Pros: See above
Cons: See above
Location: 5 minute walk from Harvard Yard.
I liked everything about this pleasant, well-run B&B except that the management sets the temperature at a minimum of 75 degrees during the summer, providing an electric fan who find 75 degrees unpleasantly warm. For winter stays, I would have no hesitation in staying there again.

Harvard location more affordable than most

Posted May 26, 2015
Pros: Location conveniently located near Harvard; tasty breakfast; book exchange in rooms was a nice touch.
Cons: My single room was on the small and spartan side, but clean and not uncomfortable.
Location: Lots to do around Harvard and Harvard Square, close to T. Happy to see that Harvard Book Store and Harvard Coop bookstore are still going strong.
I was happy to find a nice option to stay near Harvard that wasn't as exorbitant as the alternatives. Would return on my next visit.

Not a good experience

Posted Apr 28, 2015
Pros: Nothing much.
Cons: Train the staff to be more helpful. Train the cooks to cook better food! Use better utensils and plates.
Location: There'a a market place about a block away if you need anything.
I was so disappointed with this B&B. Where do I begin? First of all, my room was on the 3rd floor and the staff didn't offer to help me with my luggage. The dining area looked old, dirty, and depressing. I couldn't eat anything! The walls are so thin! I could hear the person next door open the zipper of his luggage! It's creepy!
