The breakfast was a delightful addition to my stay. The afternoon "tea" was appreciated as well. The rooms as always are neat and clean, the staff exceptional. The location is perfect as it is very close to Mass Ave, mass transit, stores, Harvard and its attractions, and of course, family living nearby.
Disappointed in the problem with the TV which was never able to be resolved during my stay. I was able to do a phone vidio of the problem and shared it with several people after they had it inspected during the day and felt it was working fine. The problem occured in the evenings after I returned from my family visits, so the video was able to confirm that there WAS a problem. I wish a minor refund had been offered, as I spent from around 7-7:30 pm on in the room each night and would have liked to watch TV.
I'm not a breakfast eater so the issue wasn't important--I did eat a muffin which was delicious. The location of the B&B was great--easy to walk or take public transportation. The room was quiet and comfortable; the staff really friendly and helpful.
The inn is a perfect blend of an older property that has newer comforts. There were snacks and beverages in the lobby and a gracious host. The bed was so nice and the off-street parking was a welcome bonus. Walkable to everything you need and in a resedential setting made for a pleasant stay.
The whole staff was professional and helpful, especially Lisa, Kathleen, Christina, the waitress who served me my breakfast in my room and the housekeeper who took care of my room. I wish I had booked my return trip so that I could have had breakfast before checking out.
This is not a dislike but a full disclosure warning. I have problems with stairs Guests must know this ahead of time. However, I was able to manage my movements and stay mobile. I do not know if someone in wheelchair might have been able to do that.
Third visit and coming back in the spring. Great rooms, excellent service, hearty breakfast, very accommodating in terms of schedules.
With a stay at Mary Prentiss Inn in Cambridge (Agassiz), you'll be within a 5-minute drive of Semitic Museum and Harvard Square. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. Free self parking is available onsite.
