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
We loved the charm of the building, the breakfast and most of all the nearness to Harvard, variety of interesting restaurants and the subway.
There was nothing we didn't like!
They double-charged me and haven't paid me back, despite saying they were going to. I'm disputing the charge with my credit card company.
I needed a place for a night at Harvard but didn't want to shell out over $300, so I was able to get a decent family room here for $225 (including taxes). Comfortable and convenient, and breakfast was good.
This is an old-style, relatively well-priced hotel which I chose for a one-night stay while working at Harvard. It is a short walk to Harvard Yard and just a bit further (still walking distance) from the Metro, shops, etc. Facilities are fairly basic, but clean and reasonable. I had a hall room so got a bit of noise with people coming and going but it was completely quiet at night. Wifi worked fine. Breakfast was an uninspiring do-it-yourself but at least it was available. Staff did an adequate job, but its not a warm b and b experience, if that's what you're looking for.
Nothing. It was fine for an overnight stay.
Great location 5 minutes walk from Harvard Square 11am check out instead of the usual 10am
Who vacuums at 7am!!! And the breakfast was totally gone by the time I went down at 9:30am
Very clean! Staff was very nice. Didn't eat breakfast so can't comment.
The bed was uncomfortable, the bathroom, although clean, was a hazard due to space. Difficult to regulate temperature. No cell phone service in the room.
Nice staff helped me find a quieter room in the back.
Terrible pillow and bed. Had a bad sleep.
Parking saved us - not sure what happens if you arrive late though, it looked awfully tight.
The doors creak. A small thing, but when you are trying to be quiet it's awfully loud. A little oil, please.
Furniture looked like it was from a charity shop, poor quality breakfast, hard cooked eggs unrefridgerated, curtains in room rough cut at bottom not hemmed, staff did not acknowledge or talk to you, abrupt check in, not at all friendly, poor value for money.
