While this property was everything we needed, the best part of it was Ralph. He was my first contact the day before we arrived. I wanted to get logistics from Logan airport to the hotel. We took the public transportation which was simple and convenient. Ralph suggested we buy the 7 day Charlie Pass, told us which shuttle to get,...

The hotel building itself was fine, and the room was big enough. It has 3 main problems: 1. The location is awful. The area is sketchy at best. 2. The wifi is absolutely awful. I think I have had faster speeds with a 56k modem. 3. When I asked the front desk to call me a taxi, they called a...

Clean rooms. Comfy queen beds. Spacious rooms for the city. Friendly staff gives out warm cookies at night. Great Parking. Walk to lechmere T, the mall, or the grocery. Large breakfast area. Quiet rooms. Very convenient for our family stay.

This hotel is a good choice for sightseeing in Boston if you don't mind walking a little. It is within walking distance of the commuter rail station and only a few stops from downtown Boston. The hotel doesn't have a pool which would have been nice after a walk about Boston but we booked this hotel at the last minute...

This hotel is not recommended for business travellers. Wifi is very poor, virtually non existent in rooms. Room is damp and smells damp unless a/c is on. Terrible location... Miles from anywhere on the side of a highway. Breakfast is soggy and not fresh. Staff on the other hand are friendly and helpful. I would not stay here again.

We appreciate your feedback and while most of our guests love our location and proximity to both the T as well as many area businesses, our location is not for everyone. We do appreciate you mentioning that our staff was helpful and attentive during your stay. We wish you great success in finding a hotel that better suits your needs.

Stayed two nights while visiting Boston. Can't beat the location for this price! A T-station is very nearby, putting you into Boston in minutes. Parking on-site is rather limited but there is an overflow parking lot just across the street (which might not be so nice in the dead of winter). I would heartily recommend this establishment for an affordable...

This hotel was perfect for our Boston stay. It's just across the Charles river from Boston and a short walk to the T station. We only tried the T once and did not enjoy the ride so took cabs for the rest of our stay. The most expensive cab was $31 from Logan otherwise it was usually about $15 or...

I like HIE, I wake up smarter! However, this is the second time at this one and I have to admit, I need to learn. It's tough to get to and not in the great part of Cambridge. If you get a room on the highway side, it is LOUD (bring earplugs for the noises really start about 5am). The...

Over-priced for its location. It's a hotel for early-birds, because cleaning staff starts knocking your door at 8 am on the weekend. Weird room design! Bed is just 8 inches from air flow from air conditioner and 10 inches from window. meanwhile there is a chair in the opposite site of the room. Designer thought that silence is more important...
