Great place to stay, but a bit of a hike

The people were great, the hotel was clean and comfortable and reasonably priced. It was 4 miles from downtown Boston, though I hiked the distance each day. All in all it was a nice place to stay, with very nice people.

stayed at La quinta for 2nights while visiting Boston. It was a good hotel to stay at outside of the city. Right off the highway.

Boston Getaway

We had a great time at the hotel. The staff went out of their way to be helpful. We actually left a piece of my wife's jewelery behind. They found it and sent it FedEx overnight delivery. We were certainly impressed

Liking my stay here...

Initially I was not sure if I made a right choice because the location is not well connected to T stations and I don't have a car...however as soon as I learnt that hotel offers complimentary shuttle to nearby T station and airport, I extended my stay here... Basically, compared to other hotels in Boston, who charge for internet, have no fitness center or pool, no complimentary shuttle from airport or breakfast...La Quinta is a clear winnner...plus its not that expensive compared to other hotel... I mean, I don't mind the price if there is some value to it...I get my value here, so I give my business to this hotel... Hitesh

Great College Drop Off

This hotel was very convenience to the restaurants, stores and not far from Boston. It was great that there's a shuttle to the train station. The room was a nice size with comfortable beds and the breakfast was good too.

LaQuinta Sommerville-Boston

It was a little hard to find the hotel with a GPS as the highways are all over the place and there was construction but we were greated very warmly when we arrived. The first eveing we were looking for things to see and Gina offered to give us ideas and was even able to help up purchase our city tour bus tickets at the hotel. Honestly Gina made this trip amazing for us. She has a real passion for making sure travellers get the best sevice, experience, and see it all.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

Get your City tour bus tickets at LaQuinta. The bus picks you up at the Hotel and taking the subway back (two short stops $2) and calling hotel for shuttle. It was a breeze! Resturant (99) across the parking lot was pretty good and inexpensive too.

Mostly Good!

The La Quinta in Somerville, MA was clean and new looking. Front desk was helpful and informative. Breakfast was tasty and a decent variety of foods. Shuttle to Sullivan Square transit station was very convenient. Downsides were: the advertised pool was very small and limited to two people at a time. Vending machines were poorly stocked (no non-caffeinated beverages, many items sold out).

overpriced and poorly kept

we chose this hotel for location-my daughter and i were going on college visits-the location was excellent-this was the only plus-the hotel smelled smokey and musty there was not one water bottle to be had in four vending machines-the rooms were closer to a $69 a nite stay not $179-the electricity in the room couldn't all stay on at the same time-ie lights went out the tv went on and off!!! really not a great la quinta
