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.

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

Don't count on your reservation!

Our flight arrived at 1230am form San Francisco. We picked up our bags and after getting our car we found our way to La Quinta Inn and Suites in Somerville. The time is now 0130am and when we checked in there was not a room waiting for us. We waited for about 20 minutes and then we were told to go to the Cambridge Gateway Hotel. The hotel driver did not speak English well enough to lead us to the Cambridge, so we eventually found our way. We finally checked in around 0230 but the Cambridge was not so nice or very clean.( but at least they were nice to us.) It was a very disappointing experience

Inexpensive accommodations

Couldn't get a non-smoking room because of early check-in. Can't fault the hotel for that, but why do hotels still tolerate smokers in the rooms? Room was clean and had hot water! The shower head was mightily constrained in amount of water it let through, but it was sufficient. No WiFi in room, only in lobby when it is working. Ethernet cable in room for those devices that are semi-mobile. Bring your own hot-spot. Hotel lost internet and phone service the second of two nights there. No StarBucks close as a backup. The restaurant "99" is right across the street and a menu is in the room, but skip that option. From the stale popcorn starter to the poorly prepared menu items, it's to be avoided. Free breakfast off the lobby that was good, and extra points for being clean! Bathroom doors were squeaky (wake the dead) and the front desk had a loaner can of WD-40. Problem solved. Overall an inexpensive way to stay in the area. Just don't expect everything to be like you'd hope (but rarely find) in a more expensive hotel.
