The friendliness of the staff, especially Lily!
Room temperature was a little inconsistent.
The room, lighting, comfort
Just enough facility near to Harvard Square
Breakfast could be better and heating of the rooms sometimes was not good.
Old school stylings.
They forgot to show me the sensor to get in after hours.
Great Location. Nice free breakfast. Strong WiFi. Friendly staff.
Room was a bit small. No bathtub.
Room was slightly too warm, but opening the window helped a lot.
I had a lovely stay at the Friendly Inn at Harvard, so much so that a family member is staying here later in the year. Location, room, wifi and staff were all good.
Only minor complaint is that the one morning the breakfast pastries were stale and there was no milk. The other mornings the breakfast was fine.
The house was very old with interesting architecture and our roown was more than comfortable. Also, the staff was extremely courteous and this place is in walking distance from Harvard Square
Nothing I would enjoy staying there again sometime
Location perfect. Comfortable, quiet, yet close to everything.
Basics like phone messages and mail can be erratic.
The feeling of the place is quaint and cute. Staff is nice, parking lot is a plus. Felt safe and secure here.
Affordable, close to campus, quiet.
Staff knocked on door early in the morning for an unknown reason. No wake up call plus do not disturb sign.
Great location,great value,friendly staff
breakfast was very nice and clean, the manager was very kind for us.
The room need warmer
comfortable bed, clean bathroom, really good position, free parking, and the price you never refuse.
If I need to say something, the furniture is a little bit old.
There is a nice breakfast spread. The rooms were clean and the wifi was excellent. The facilities are a little old but this provides a very good value for visitors to Cambridge/Harvard.
I had a plane to get and let my luggage at their storage after checkout so I could pick it later, but by the time I got there, nobody was home and I missed my bus, luckily didn't miss the plane. It took me more than 30 minutes and a lot of help from neighbors to locate the staff.
Location. Breakfast spread. Tea available throughout the day. Homey atmosphere.
Before to leave I told at the reception "my stay with you was perfect". Martine et Laure , Paris.
Cleanliness, free wifi
No offer of assistance with luggage to the second floor as a female
"Room at the inn" feel
narrow stairs hard to navigate luggage
The location was awesome. Easily walkable to Harvard Square and the Business School during November. The wifi was great, room was actually larger than expected, it was very clean, and there were some pastries and coffee in the morning. I would stay here again without hesitation.
The bed was extremely firm. Maybe the firmest mattress I've ever been on. I so tired that it didn't affect my sleep, though. Also, the tv was extremely small.
Near Harvard square.
THE LOCATION OF THE INN WAS PERFECT FOR MY VISITING REASONS.
PILLOWS WERE VERY FLAT, ROOM WAS TOO WARM.
Comfy bed, nice breakfast buffet. Location was perfect.
Not very friendly daytime staffer
