    Two nights in Cambridge

    I thought the place was way overpriced. The water in the shower had a very light flow. The breakfast was a continental breakfast that had to be ordered and was delivered to the room. The air conditioner was very loud. I would give it 3 stars out of 5

    • Disliked: Room comfort

    Not what you think!

    The room that I stayed in was not very accommodating. The AC was in the living room and only a little fan in the bedroom to deal with the humidity. It wasn’t at all as what to expect in a B&B for the price I spent. The access to room was steep, the bed was ok, and the bathroom was mediocre. No amenities that were even close to luxurious. Only breakfast available was English muffin and coffee. After re checking the site, the room I stayed in wasn’t even included in the photos and wasn’t close to similar to the esthetic of the other rooms.
