Hotels in the Boston/Cambridge area are obscenely expensive. I'm glad that this hotel provides accommodation at a reasonable cost.
The rooms are comfortable (looks like the hotel was renovated not too long ago) and is conveniently located near the orange T line (about 10 min walk to the Sullivan station). Some may complain about the neighborhood, but it is a convenient location. For those who need to go to Cambridge area, there are bus stops about two blocks away that take riders to MIT and Harvard.
Staff are friendly. The only reason why I gave four stars instead of five is because of the reliability of the free internet. It dropped out or slowed to a crawl occasionally, probably because of the load from other customers on the same floor.
There was also some street noise early in the morning (truck or train?)
