Walking from the "T" to this B&B on a rainy evening, I could not have been more pleased to receive a warm welcome, and enter into a room with a lit fireplace awaiting me. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful throughout my stay and I didn't want to leave -- it was that comfortable and cozy. Conveniently located not...

As said by others, this B&B is located 8 mins walk from Davis Square T-stop and 12 mins from Porter T-stop. We were in the annex building next door (2210). The room was nicely furnished but a little hot. (There was snow outside so I guess they had tried to keep it comfy). Tea & coffee are available in the...

This place has all Victorian decor with canopy bed, antique desk, etc. Very convenient and close to Davis Square (8 minute walk) and Porter Square. Breakfast was decent but the bakery items were not very fresh. Place needs some upkeep - hair dryer in the bathroom did not have a proper holder, smoke alarms in the room seem to have...

We were in Cambridge during a cold snap. But inside the Inn, both the temperature and the atmosphere were warm and inviting. The best thing was being able to have a cup of hot cocoa as soon as we were in the door ! Our room was very romantic with a canopy bed and period decor. We were in town...

The B&B in Victorian style is in a quiet and nice location, close to everything in Cambridge (Davis Square, Porter Square & Harvard Square). We stayed one night, visting our daughter, before headin to NYC. The night was restfull and comfortable. We stayed in the building on the left from the main building, at the first floor, the first room...

We went to see a show in the Somerville Theater and this B&B is about a 7 min walk to the theater (Davis Square) and had free parking which is why I chose it. The Inn has both Victorian style rooms & contemporary style rooms. I chose contemporary (it's more my style & it was the cheaper of the two...

We stayed here while visiting our daughter for parent's weekend at Tufts university. Location is good but the accommodations are average. Old building with a musty interior. Continental breakfast was available but nothing fancy. Parking is free and that's a plus given the location. I'd probably find another place for our next visit.

From walking up the steps on the porch to the morning we checked out everything about this B&B was good. The welcome was friendly and the staff very helpful. Despite the decor in the dining room (which was open 24/7 and where you get a coffee anytime day or night) being a little dark and dated the breakfast was excellent...

We chose this hotel based primarily on free parking. Although we didn't experience any problems with this since we got there early in the day, there didn't seem to be nearly enough spaces for the number of rooms. We were assigned to the building next to the one where you go to check in, and our room was very plain,...

I picked this hotel for its location. Easy walk or short bus ride to appointments. Old buildings well maintained on a busy street but get a room in back or on the side and it is quiet. Large room but cramped bathrooms. Pleasant and helpful staff. Good for someone on a budget as hotels in this area are very expensive....
