The Farrington Inn was a wonderful place to stay! The staff were very kind and helpful, and our room was very clean and spacious. The location is great as well, and I enjoyed the ~30 minute walk toward the Harvard Square area.

Perhaps this place is nice in warm weather. It's low budget close to trains and Universities. Very cold, freezing in winter. No warm blankets. Smells of cigarettes. Entrance smells of cigarettes smoke. Bathroom no heat. Fellow receptionist very helpful and nice. I left after two nights, my stay was three.
