“$$wifi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

It is crazy that there is a charge for wifi access in a hotel that costs as much as this. Very nice location, clean and well maintained. Easy self-parking in lighted lots. Food and drinks available on site. Just can't get over having to pay for internet access after paying top $ for a hotel suite.

This is a very nice hotel to stay in. Wonderful ameneties and very clean. Easy commute into Cambridge and great location just outside the city. Great value with very nice staff. We would definitely return.

The hotel is standard Embassy Suites but finding it can be difficult, even with Google Maps, especially coming off 95/Rt 128, in which case you have to go over the overpass over the highway to get to it or even view it.

Some friends of mine came in from out of town. Through a business association that I am a member of, I had previously met Chad, the Director of Events and Catering Services, and he gave our group a tour of the hotel. Because of that previous tour, I recommended to my friends that they stay here. They did, and had a lovely time! The lobby/bar area is beautiful and my friends enjoyed very nice meals there. The rooms are suites, and very nice with a separate living room/bedroom. More importantly, my friends wanted to go to Boston to the Aquarium and the Museum of Science. Chad was instrumental in directing us the best way to get in and out of town from the hotel via MBTA. He also suggested a nice welcome basket, which offer I took him up on and my friends loved it! He was such a huge help I can't tell you!!! Really, in this day and age, service is where its at and this hotel/staff has it! Keep up the good work!

Hotels in downtown Boston is expensive and rooms are petite. To pay less than US$150 for a suite, free breakfast and parking is a steal, only downside you are 20km from downtown Boston. Beds are soso. Also wifi in the room is not free, and cost US$10+ for each device. But you can get free wifi in the lobby, and the trick is log into wifi in the lobby and chances are you can still use it in your room.

Good rates for a suite over 4th of July weekend near Boston. Hotel is located right off the MASS Pike I-90 , FREE parking, which is a huge savings when going to any bigger city. About 2 miles to a T station, (subway) to get aound the city easily. Free breakfast exceeded most I have been to.

I recently stayed here because my teen boys were involved in a football camp nearby. It was one of two recommended properties. Although, it says Boston, i's not really that close. It is workably close, but this hotel is not in the city. The room worked well for us, and the breakfast (included) was amazing! The dining area is huge. The fact that there is a restaurant and bar on site is a huge plus. I also had lunch here one day, which was lovely. The room was clean; the hotel was clean; the staff was friendly and accommodating; the pool and hot tub were great; parking is easy and plentiful even when the hotel is full, which it was. Internet is an additional cost, but there is a computer/business room available. Access to I95 is easy. We'll be back next year.

Room Tip: We were on floor 2, so we didn't need the elevator. I like taking stairs because it's quicke...

Green Features: You can forego housekeeping for a $10 credit for either the restaurant or wifi.
