Efficient, friendly drivers, helpful staff

It's was a nice experience for us to stay the first time at this hotel. We came to Boston for a Family Weekend at a college in Cambridge. The way Ramada/Comfort Inn worked was great for us. They were reasonable with the prices. It was convenient to get to our destinations because they provided shuttles to and from Logan Airport and the JFK train Station.The shuttle drivers were very friendly, even when they had to pick us up at a rather late time. The breakfast was also great. We will definitely stay again.

Services were great!

All the staff were helpful, friendly and patient. We stayed three nights before a cruise, and they provided us with frequent shuttles to subway, etc., including to the cruise ship. What was exceptional, was that after the cruise, even though we were NOT staying at the hotel, they picked us up at the ship, checked our bags for the day, shuttled us to the JFK Library and back for our bags and then to the airport! They were careful and attentive to one of our party who used a walker and even though many passengers did not tip, they continued to give excellent service. i will recommend them to anyone going to Boston. Also, our 3 nights and round-trip airfare was less than many downtown hotels would charge for a single night.

Girls weekend

took an hour for the shuttle driver to pick us up from airport. Then he complained about traffic all the way to hotel almost an other hour. We talked to Asst. General Manager, Kellie Pabst she gave a free piece of candy. Did not help. Room was ok worried about bed bugs from reviews. Would not stay there again

Family on holiday

We found the hotel to be well located with friendly and efficient staff. The rooms were a good size, very clean and comfortable. The shuttle service was particularly good and the driver we had on a number of occasions could not have been better. The local restaurant was excellent and we all enjoyed the bowling alley adjacent to the hotel.

Tiny rooms and noisy

Our family of 4 slept here for 3 nights, chosen for the proximity to Boston and for the pool. The kids themselves declared the pool "disgusting" and over-chlorinated--and hotel pools are usually their fave thing about a vacation! Meanwhile, the room was so small that 2 double beds were just squeezed in, and 1 bed was so close to the AC (3-4 inches) it was nearly impossible to walk on that side of the bed. The room was unbearably stuffy without the AC, but the AC was so noisy it woke us up constantly. Two reasons I did not give it one star: the breakfast was filled with choices and decent, and the beds were nice and firm. But none of us will return again! It made our trip so much more difficult to not get a good night's sleep.

Family Vacation

Hotel was decent and the complimentary breakfast was definitely a plus. The location is great since its in a safe location that's only a 15-20 minute drive into the heart of Boston.

Very good value

Not too far from downtown Boston and about 1/3 less than hotels in Boston. Shuttle service to downtown Boston and the airport is a benefit as well.

Good Hotel, Good Shuttles, Kinda laid back staff

They have a very good shuttle service from Convention Center, Airport and the JFK / U Mass. The breakfast is good, room is clean and the hotel is clean too. The reception staff is kinda laid back and sometimes forget but are courteous and happy to help.
