The staff was especially helpful regarding tourist attractions, transportation, and restaurants. Computer w/Internet access in lobby complimentary for guests.
The Breakfast was excellent! The heater did not work. The room reached until 59 degrees, we notify front desk their answer was "in summer (September) they does not turn it on.
The front desk guy was really nice and accommodative. a stronger internet connection would have been good, and the continental breakfast should have been served until 11:00 am.
The great bedroom: big, good looking and with a confortable king-sized bed. The staff were very nice and always trying to help. A good breakfast, a nice neighbourhood... I really liked this hotel! No.
It's proximity to the subway and the complimentary continental breakfast.
When I arrived, the employee working at the front desk was very helpful and kind. I felt comfortable and enjoyed my stay.
Great location for visiting BU campus and proximity to the T line. Really appreciate the full breakfast and free internet. Near Whole Foods Grocery store for stocking up on supplies for the fridge or microwave use. The heating unit was noisy and difficult to control the temperature comfortably.
I liked that it was convenient and had availability. The price was ok, compared to what other hotels were going for around the area. i felt like it could have been cleaner. The room felt very damp, as if there had been no air but the air conditioning circulating the room. There were spiders every where - In the curtains, on the wall when I woke up, in the bathroom smashed on the wall. I couldn't wait to check out. The bed was terrible. It flt like it was very old mattress, extra soft and springy.
The modest breakfast offered in the lobby area as part of our room charge was convenient and allowed us to start our day quickly. The hotel's close proximity to Boston College was very helpful for anyone visiting the school. This is a hotel to use for one or two nights for practical reasons. It was a little difficult to locate, and just satisfied our minimum requirements for comfort, but we were happy to have the extra pocket money.
The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. Also enjoyed the complimentary breakfast (plenty of food and variety).
convenience for the city transport system
Location, free auto parking, generous complimentary breakfasts, very helpful staff at front desk no
Nice area. Right next to a great ice cream shop. The room had a weird smell. The closet had a piece of ceiling missing exposing it to the attic. Could not use wi-fi or cell phone in the room.
Friendly treatment by the recepcionist. Excellent price for short stays.
Nothing Rooms were disgusting, they don't move furniture when vacuuming the floor.
Convenient budget motel near Boston, quick drive to Cambridge via Route 2. Includes pastry and coffee or tea. We got on our way quickly and easily.
Comfortable and clean, but recommended only for short stays, since there's nothing in the area. This motel is very basic. There's no breakfast and there are very few places around for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The city has no social life at all, so you have to take the car to go to Cambridge or Boston, which are far than expected (40-50 min). Personnel not very helpful.
the room was clean but the smell was ugly poor detergernts. enoungh for one night only.
hotel was basic clean no noise nice clientele ice cream parlor right next door convenience 2 mins away bedspreads
The price was so low that I was expecting to be cheated, but the reviews were excellent, so I tried it. We were 2 and we both found this motel wonderful, it's really quiet, in a nice location, well-kept, the rooms are very clean and the staff is extremely nice. It was a great value for the money we spent, and we would surely stay here again. It's a little bit far from Boston, but with a car it is 10 minutes drive and there is a 7$ parking for the whole day!
I liked the facilities in my room I did not like the bathroom shower and the door which could not be locked
Convenient location. Toilet backed up. Managment provided plunger.
good location at a reasonable price; 20 minutes by car from alewife T station, cambridge, for convenient traveling into Boston outdated room accommodations
The front desk staff was very friendly. Honestly, this place was disappointing. I had to open the windows to air out the overwhelming perfume smell in my room. It was so strong, I couldn't stop coughing. Then, I couldn't lock the windows back up when I needed to close them. There was garbage all over the parking lot too. Definitely not worth $100/night.
Fairly comfortable and clean. Includes light breakfast and parking. A few miles from city center. The mouse. It woke me up around midnight of our second night there. It was running around and chewing on something. My boyfriend didn't hear it initially because he's a heavier sleeper than me. I thought I was hearing things. After we turned off the lights, I heard it again. This time, he did too. I couldn't sleep after that. I had the lights on for about an hour or so. My boyfriend was tired from a long day so he passed out. I eventually dozed off but not for long as it woke me again around 6am. We finally found what it got into. We had a loaf of bread inside a tied up plastic bag in the room. It chewed through the bag and ate a big piece of the bread. I told the manager, Supta, about it, but she said they do not have a mouse problem. However, I found a mouse trap under behind the desk with a piece of cheese on it. I guess it was a really smart mouse. She explained the trap is for preventative reasons. She also asked if I turned off or blocked the mouse light (it's a night light to scare off the mice??) Nope, it was on the whole night. I suggested that they a post a sign warning guests not to have any food in the room, like they do in hostels, since it sounded like she thought it was our fault for having food in the room. I was a bit upset they have an issue with mice, especially for the price we paid ($92 a night!) I would have rated this stay as a one star for this reason but our first night stay was not a problem. I suppose if you're a heavy sleeper or don't mind the company of mice, it won't be an issue.
