This hotel is a perfectly fine hotel as long as you compare it to a similar one. It reminded me of a hotel you would find while travelling cross-country on an interstate. If you are expecting the Lennox or Back Bay Hilton, you will be disappointed, however you won't have the $300+ per night bill that you would at one of those places.
The rooms and public areas were clean. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The continental breakfast was good. The Alewife T Station is .3 mile away, and access from I-95 is easy.
The Cambridge Gateway Inn is a good place to stay. I will not hesitate to stay there again.
Again, this hotel is not trying to compete with the expensive luxery hotels in-town, so don't compare it to them.
