Second stay at this hotel and it was better than the first. We were moving our daughter into BU. Was wonderful to park our fully loaded car in front of our door so we could move the stuff from the back seat into the room overnight. There was plenty of room inside to store it. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Wifi, free, worked well. Breakfast was good, although a little carb heavy w/ breads, cereal and muffins. There were also eggs and bacon, which we don't eat. The free parking was marvelous. All staff we dealt with were pleasant and eager to help. The hotel is aging, but they are clearly trying to keep it up. All in all, a terrific value for the cost.
Hotel is across from the Boston Common; walking distance to the main sites. But if you need to take the Subway, it is right there as well. Hotel staff let us check-in early. They were very friendly and helpful when it came to the Boston sites and restaurants. Maid service was great too.
We chose to stay in Waltham to avoid the Boston traffic and it was a great idea. The staff gave me guidance to get to the train (I took a taxi to the Riverside station for $10.50). One of the best vacations ever, stress free. Rooms were great, clean and fresh with a kitchenette.
An old fire engine house made into a nice hotel, handy for the subway which stops just opposite. The open top bus tour stops just nearby too. Fabulous breakfast which can be eaten indoors or outdoors. Right in the middle of the MIT, high tech area so not many eating places nearby although you can find some if you are prepared to walk (or take the subway) - don't bother with a car.
Nice hotel with very comfortable and quiet rooms. Free breakfast variety beats other hotels I stayed in. The pool and hot tub are a nice bonus. The best thing is location. 5 mins walk to subway station and about 15 mins ride to downtown.
Clean, comfortable, quiet, full breakfast. We like it.
One problem - check your GPS, our magelan was confused in this location/ you have to use exit 26/ and turn to place, where is Hampton Hotel. Both hotels in same place.
Booked smaller room initially. Found queen bed too small for us. Asked for change and was given a gorgous room in the historical part of the inn. Simply beautiful room for the price. Staff was always smiling, happy to attend to any need. If your into history, this is the Inn. Restaurants have nice varied menus. All the meals were wonderful. Highly recommend the Colonial Inn.
