Recent guest reviews

A bit small, and only one mirror in suite in bathroom...

Recently Stayed for one night, and everything was wonderful. Great location and service for a decent price.

We had a superb stay. If all of their hotels are of the same quality, we will be happy to book with them again. Clean rooms, quality service. Excellent location. Desk staff was polite and helpful. The rooms were thoroughly cleaned and the cleaning staff was very polite when you passed them in the halls.

Overall a very good experience. plus: size and comfort of the room, Amenities, location, cons: room was always a little bit smelly when entering (last only for 30 seconds though).

This hotel is not fancy and it is a bit expensive but is comfortable and has everything needed. the staff goes the extra mile

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

This Hotel has everything you need when trying to conduct business during this prolonged bad weather we've been having in the NorthEast-internet service,extra computers/compuer acess in the Lobbygreat room/bed,covered garage for your car,meals at night (Mon-Thrs),complimentary bag of popcorn in your room (which has a microwave,stove,refrig,glasse, plates and utensils) and Breakfast and a paper when you wake up-not to mention there is Commuter Bus Service right outside the door as well as a CVs right across the parking lot for those items you forgot to pack. The staff is always friendly and alert. I love this place!

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.

The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. It has all the luxuries of home but away from home.

I would stay there again. Great room, great location, friendly staff, great breakfast.

Hotel was great. Was farther out than represented. Cabs got quite expensive. Bus is available right across the street and could be taken fairly easy. It was $80 from airport and about $80 round trip each night we went to town.

We checked in early as we got their early. They were very welcoming and arranged for us to get a clean room. Staff was helpful with directions to various locations and recommendations for restaurants.

We have stayed here many times and find that it is great value for the money. Not a luxury hotel by any means, but comfortable, clean, quiet, and all the bathroom amenities needed (including very good towels). This is a "suites" hotel with basic kitchen/living room in addition to the bedroom. The location is ideal for us, since we have a daughter whom we visit less than a mile away. Otherwise, there is nothing to do in the immediate neighborhood. Many families, all of whom seem happy. Better-than-average free breakfast. Friendly staff.

very clean full kitchen, lovely living rooom area with tv and nice frim bed. Bathroom was very clean and beautiful fluffy towels! Very nice, tried to stay another night but they were booked. The staff at the desk helped us find another hotel 1/2 mile down the road.

I thought this place was great! The rooms were a great size - with a full kitchen - dishwasher and all! The breakfast was just fine and the staff were very friendly and helpful! I would definitely stay there again!!! The price was just right and for the services you get (breakfast/garage parking/gym) it's a steal!
