Satisfactory hotel – nothing special but nothing bad

The hotel was just fine for our needs. It's in a good location if you want to shop at assembly Square, but is a little off the beaten track if you want to see sites. The rooms are fine, though not fancy by any means. For a reasonable hotel close to Boston and the sites, this is just fine.

Early summer visit

We choose this hotel for several reasons. 1. The hotel is only one of 2 in Somerville Ma 2. Hotel offers free airport shuttle ($50 cab fee) 3. Offers hourly drop off service to 3 T stop locations- otherwise you need to drive or cab it. 4. Staff was very helpful despite crunch of graduation weekend guests.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Alert, the T is being expanded to stop a few blocks away from this hotel which will increase one's ability to easily access other parts of Boston. Look for prices at this hotel to perhaps increase or for other hotels to pop up. New apts and shops being added because of T.

Visiting family in the Boston area

Everything was adequate but just average. Almost $200 reflects location, not anything special about the place..

perfect for us

the bed is incredibly comfortable; the room large, quiet. The breakfast is fine - not special but plenty adequate and easy to enjoy.

Worn, but serviceable, value for the money, free parking

For us it was fine. We didn't spend much time there. We used it as a place to sleep. Parking is free, a big plus in the Boston area. The room was worn, but not in a way that really affected us. It is not a fancy place by any means, but it met our needs (which are not much). We hang out with the kids all day and just go there to sleep. This is the second time we have been there, so that must be a recommendation of some sorts.

Great Choice

If you are looking to visit Cambridge or Somerville, I would recommend La Quinta. It's cheerful, clean, and wholesome. Plenty of parking is available. Relative to other hotels in the area, it is reasonably priced. I particularly liked the shower, the excellent TV, and the firm mattress. Breakfast was ample.

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.
