This place has a good location, right at the border of Cambridge and Arlington. It's right next to the Alewife Brook Greenway, a pleasant 20-min walk to the Alewife T-station, and right on the bus line to Harvard Square. It is next door to a nice restaurant and a CVS drugstore. Grocery stores are in driving distance. Only the couple of hotels near Harvard Square would have had a more convenient location for my work: but they were booked out during my visit, the week of commencement at Harvard. The service was great. The 2 larger rooms are extremely pleasant, with big firm beds, several pillows including feather ones, and a nice little kitchen with stove, microwave, fridge, and a complete set of cookware. The kitchen/dining/living area has a big table and nice couch. My suite had only one rather small window. The bathroom was small but functional. The free buffet breakfast was practical. If I was going back on my own, I would probably try for accommodation that was cheaper or closer to my work. If I was going back with my wife, I'd probably stay here again.

We stayed here when visiting our son at Harvard. It was convenient and very pleasant. The desk staff were friendly, and the rooms were a nice size. The breakfast was good. There is no swimming pool which disappointed our kids a little. However, they do have a basketball court which was a fun surprise.

I recommend this hotel highly. There is a private underground garage and a private entrance. It is conveniently located. The staff are friendly and helpful. There are convenient, nearby restaurants and a drug store across the parking lot.

This hotel has a great location when traveling to the Boston area. As with all Homewoods, it was clean, comfortable and in room kitchen was just what I look for when staying more than a couple of days in an area.

The location and facilities are great for parents visiting students at Tufts. Very close to Davis Square for good food. This is where the students like to go for food too. Short walking distance to Alewife T Stop for getting into Boston and visiting all the tourist activities.
