Love this hotel

The location is so convenient for our visits to relatives in Cambridge and we love the layout and amenities. The breakfasts are great. The weekday suppers are appreciated but could be better. The sleep sofa is not as comfortable as we would like, and a larger crib would have been nice for our 3 year old, but we will definitely stay there again. Rhoda MacKenzie

We like the walking path beside the hotel. If you go to the end there is a playground across the street with a water spray which the children love after a hot summer day.

convenient to work in Cambridge

Nice hotel, convenient if you're doing work in Cambridge, Arlington or Lexington. The restaurant right next to the hotel is pretty reasonable. About a 15 minute walk to the subway. Off street parking in a garage in the basement.

Great Price for the location

Had a great time at this hotel. Extremely convenient location and good deal. Appreciated the fact that it had a nice kitchenette so we didn't always have to eat out, which was very tempting considering the number of good restaurants within walking distance! Would definitely stay there again.

Homewood Suites Arlington Mass

The hotel was an excellent location for us. We don't drive while in Boston so the "t" stop outside the hotel was convenient. A $15.00 "Charlie" pass is all you need to enjoy the entire city, providing you don't mind being so close to the general public. The room had a faint odor of tobacco but it wasn't too bad. Breakfast was good, and they also offer a free dinner which we were never there for. Homewood Suites was a very good choice!

More Than We Expected

We had two rooms here for my doctoral graduation. We were suprised to learn that in addition to breakfast, the hotel serves dinner (included in room rate) several evenings per week. The drugstore in the adjoining parking lot adds to the hotel's level of convenience as does the presence of an MBTA bus stop immediately in front of the building. Staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was very close to the lobby which was too loud late at night, at times during hte night, and very often early in the morning. All in all a very good experience and an outstanding value for the price.

Quiet location

Great, quiet location. Rooms do not run parallel to main road so very little street noise. Underground garage is convenient but the spaces may fill up when the hotel is full. Nice suites with full refrigerators, and good size microwaves and stoves. Good value for the money. My only complaint - the toilet clogged and spilled over. When I called down to the desk for help, they said I had to plunger the clog myself becuase there was no one available to help me. It was around midnight, but c'mon, there should be someone on call for such things. The water was coming out! I had to trek down to the desk for the 'tool' and only got a free soda out of it.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

The 77 Bus runs down to the Harvard square. The bus stop is across the street from the hotel and the buses run every 5 minutes. Very convenient.
