Felt like the walls were SUPER thin and people walking in the hallway could hear any conversation, noise from the room. Breakfast was mostly dry pastries.
Loved the price and location. Located near a little town of Sommerville - great shops and restaurants. Not too far from subway station - about .5 mile and one stop from Harvard.

Did not like the breakfast though. Very limited choice and no any hot meal.
Very friendly staff members, comfortable, clean and good location.

Breakfast was very mediocre and the exact same all the days of our stay. Cold, hard-boiled eggs, breads, fruit...nothing was fresh and there was no variety. When we stay in a bed and breakfast we look forward to a great breakfast-or at least a hot breakfast. We have stayed in other B & Bs in the area and the breakfast has been far superior.
While there were a number of challenges during out stay, the staff responded well and was helpful In addressing all issues.

The windows were cracked open at the top, so there was a draft and noise from the street. I had to climb on the sills to close and lock the windows. I couldn't lock the door from the outside. No staff person was around to help. Overall it was a b&b feel without the cute breakfast or charm. I would stay at a corporate hotel next time, but this place wasn't bad for the price.
Cheap and close to the T.

Contemporary room was not special. Pea green spread with red shower curtain. No tub and shower stall like in a college dorm. Tiny TV.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was adequate and peaceful. Main house was Victorian and pretty. Free parking.

Not really a bad experience - but both mornings during the early breakfast hour there was no one in the office, and I would have like to ask a few questions at that time.
Peaceful and quiet - nice assortment at breakfast - many options for restaurants and other amenities within a pleasant six block radius. Not far from a commuter train line - didn't take it but might next time!

Comfortable, quiet, easy access to transportation and good breakfast

Thought I was staying in the cute b&b in the photo, but ended up being the much plainer house next door.
Nice off street parking, well shoveled even in the stormy winter.

We were in Cambridge during a blizzard. The Inn was warm, the staff was friendly and they did a fabulous job with keeping up with the snow removal.

This Inn is excellent value! The price and the charm more than make up for the relatively "cozy" size of the rooms.
We always stay here when we visit our daughter and her husband, who live close by. By now, the weekend staff feel like old friends. We appreciate the charm of the uniquly decorated traditional rooms, and also the scope of the included breakfast - which includes hard-boiled aggs for those of us who need a bit of protein to get started. Also, it is great to be able to make a cup of tea or coffee when we get back at night.

Nice continental breakfast.

Very friendly staff, nice "parlor" area to hang out, free parking, unique room
January 25, 2015
Free parking on site is a huge plus. Perfect location as it is close to both Davis and Porter Squares.
December 17, 2014
Paying nearly full price for hotel, some rooms lack charm, breakfast more like a chain-hotel continental buffet than like a typical home-made meal.
Location, clean, included parking
December 15, 2014
TV was small which made it difficult for me to view the screen without HD.
The accommodation was directly across the street from an event I was attending. It doesn't get much better than that. The Bedroom was adequate for one person. The bath room was spacious with a large walk in shower

Comfortable room and friendly staff.

Bed was not a queen bed, decor was horrible! Bed was lumpy and sagged in the middle.

2 flights of stairs to the attic bedroom!!
Decor - beautiful Manager- very personal and friendly Breakfast - good selection, excellent coffee Informal dining room Location - away from city centre but close to subway, Harvard, amenities

The night attendant was very hard to understand and not friendly and told us to go next door. Be sure to look at the fine print on the confirmation. The small word at the bottom "contemporary" means you go next door to a very small room. The lady the next day was very nice and accommodating.
The Cambridge house was fine, but we were directed to the "contemporary" house next door on arrival. Only got to stay in the actual Cambridge house after a cancellation.

The bathroom was tiny, the drapes in the bedroom were very dusty and dirty, the windows did not open and the outside patio was unswept and trashy.
Our room was very large and quiet.
September 20, 2014
It was impossible to open an window and so it was necessary to use the air condition which was noisy and not always very effective.
Very convenient, reasonable price and helpful staff.
