This was a gold mine of a find. Walking distance to Lechemere (end of the greenline on the T), and right at stops for the 88 and 87, and I believe walking distance to the 83. From here, you can get to Davis, Porter, downtown, Arlington-- just about anywhere and very easily. My parents and aunt/uncle are both in their...

Just back from a great stay at this HIE.

We picked this hotel because it was close to Harvard Law School where we were visiting our son. The hotel was built on a very small commercial lot so there is nothing but the hotel and its parking lot. The car spaces were tight, which is a reflection of the small building lot. If you are driving a rental car...
