    Superb

    I thought that the staff was very courteous and helpful. After my stay, I had to resolve (what I thought was) a discrepancy between my bill and the listing on my credit card statement. It turned out to be a misunderstanding on my part, but the staff was very friendly during the call. Also, my room had everything that I needed, including a microwave, a refrigerator, and free wireless internet access. The parking lot had enough spaces and was closer to the entrance than at other hotels I have visited.

    I'm not sure if the hotel had exercise facilities - if so, it wasn't obvious where it was. Granted, there was a park very close by so I was able to run there, but having a map of the hotel in the room would have been nice.

    Fabulous

    The pool table was nice, My husband and I interacted with a high school student and her dad who were looking at colleges. The breakfast was great!

    Even though it is in Cambridge (where hotels are very expensive) I thought the price could be much cheaper. If the price were cheaper I might stay more often, I work in Cambridge and have trouble commuting in from home for early meetings. Plus the 12 dollars for parking (in a pretty much empty lot) was unnecessary after an expensive hotel room..

    "Next door" to Trader Joe's and Whole Foods--amenities include microwave, frig, and coffee maker. Close easy walk to Alewife Red Line T station. Staff adhered to online quoted rates --when system overcharged, staff corrected to agreed upon amount. Above average breakfast!

    Would appreciate decaf and herbal teas including green tea bags, as well as a few gluten-free offerings and non-dairy milk (coconut, almond, soy, etc.)

    Superb

    Nice, clean place with helpful staff and free shuttle to Harvard Square. Also, there is a pretty nice walking/running trail that goes around a reservoir just across the street -- a little hard to discover unless you cross the street and see the entrances.

    They did not clean up the room during the whole day. We came back at 6 pm, and had to ask for clean up. Same thing happened the next day. People in the front desk rude, we never received an apology, they wouldn´t help with problems with the phone. Seems like bad service is the rule.

    This is the only hotel in the area. The hotel is simple, nothing fancy, but the place is clean, the service is friendly and it is located in a shopping area, so whatever you need is close by. The hotel offers free breakfast with nice selection of food.
