I had to visit Harvard Law school in summer for a conference. I find that standard hotels are beyond my capacity. So I stayed here. You cannot book well in advance from the inn website - I tried a third party website. There is no lift -so if you have heavy luggage or mobility issue (knee pain etc) stay in...

Look no further if you need to stay in the Cambridge/Boston area; not only is it reasonably priced (by Boston standards), but it is lovely, too. We had a contemporary room and it was clean, well-decorated and quiet. The bed was very comfortable too. The only thing that wasn’t great was the rising sun coming through the blinds; a curtain...

Very disappointed with this room. It was a traditional room on the ground floor which was extremely dark and dingy. Over hung with drapes, and a 4 poster bad that covered the ceiling ligh. The shutters on the upper window would not open due to the drapes and as the room was ground level the lower shutters had to be...

The front office people were great. The room was comfotable. The only drawback is the room has a window air conditioner that struggled a bit to cool the room. It was July and hot and humid, overall, no real complaints. The breakfast is nothing more than standard chain hotel buffet. The real beauty is the cost and location. Very reasonable...

First of all the room was clean and the breakfast was okay for B&B standard. But the room was dark, ancient and not very comfortable. The wifi in our room was unfortunately very bad. Other guest we met at breakfast told us the same. The walk to the red line takes about 10 minutes which is ok. On the way...

I stayed here for a few nights for business. The location is perfect for my purpose of travel. It is near from Davis square and Porter square. If you have business near Cambridge area, this could be useful. The room is rather small and has not much space except for the bed. The bathroom is somewhat unnecessarily large and has...

The people were wonderful, our room was comfortable and breakfast was yummy. I can't wait to go back! This is a great place for enjoying Boston and it's environs. It is convenient to public transportation too.

We have stayed here multiple times and each time found it a very enjoyable experience. The rooms are clean, the staff both knowledgeable and friendly and the continental breakfast is excellent with plenty of fruit. Also there is free parking The note of caution applies to your selection of a room. This time I was asked if I wanted a...

I have stayed at this historic B&B,ideally located for anyone visiting Harvard University, a mile or so to the south many times. Andrea, the inn keeper is always cheerful,helpful and competent. I'd love to see a more elaborate continental breakfast, but for the price it suffices. The Inn itself has two buildings and a cottage in the back. I try...
