The Tria is a hotel that offered a comfortable room with a nice breakfast. We have stayed here several times and like the rooms, the breakfast, the location close to the Alewife subway stop and even a shuttle to Harvard Square. The prices are fairly good for the Boston Cambridge area ($250 per night including taxes). The bathrooms could use...

This is a nice hotel. It was clean. The bathroom was small and was older but clean and in working condition. Our room was right by the elevator and we could hear a lot of hall noise. Other than that, it was a good value. I would stay there again. The complimentary breakfast and the shuttle service was great.

I stayed at the Best Western Tria in the Cambridge area for 2 nights and had a good stay. The room was a good size and bed comfortable. Linens were clean and well pressed and room generally clean. There was a well functioning AC unit in the room and all basic amenities covered. The closet was rather small and safes...

Took a few extra days on a business trip to see the sights of Boston. Let's be honest Boston hotels are out of my price budget at well over $250 a night. The great thing about this hotel is it is close (half mile) to the Red Line metro station "Alewife" and in a good neighborhood. The breakfast was decent....

If you need a place to stay in Cambridge and are driving, this is the place I recommend. It is a functional hotel surrounding by parking lots on three sides, including a Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Starbucks, Chipotle's, etc. It is not quaint by any stretch but a fine hotel none-the-less with a shuttle to Harvard Square. Great especially for...

I stayed here for 4 nights whilst on business in the offices nearby. The room I stayed in was spacious enough, had airco, a large double bed, 32" flat screen television,fridge and tea and coffee making facilities. The room was clean and tidy throughout my stay and the bed was comfy so I didn't really suffer with too much jet-lag...

Recommended on the Harvard college visit site. Ask for the Harvard discount. Provides a free shuttle to and from Harvard. Hotel is nice with complimentary breakfast. Starbucks is attached if you want to pay up for something else.

This hotel is further out of Boston yet a bit more affordable. Near Harvard, it's surrounded by historic buildings and things to see. There's a Whole Foods right behind the hotel which is convenient. There was some construction in the area and this impacted traffic.

Stayed here numerous times over the last 4 years. It is a very well run hotel compared to others I've stayed in. The beds are very comfortable, the food is plentiful and good. Everyone is pleasant and helpful and it is close to the T.

“Avoid room 221 at all costs. It is the end room at elevator and stair access, over the hotel lobby. NO sound deadening whatsoever, noisy!”
