We have stayed here several times now when visiting our son at Harvard and we love it! The location is great, nice restaurant next door, CVS next door and a great running trail. Rooms are always clean and we love that we get a suite with a microwave and full sized refrigerator. Definitely recommend this if you are visiting Cambridge.

The rooms are spacious, clean and perfect for either a couple or a family of 4. The room is equipped with a complete kitchen, including pots and pans. We wished we were staying for more than one night. Staff was friendly from front desk to kitchen.

We had a good experience at this hotel, but I wish it had been easier to walk to Harvard/MIT. The distance might have been not that big of deal if there was something interesting to see or someplace interesting to eat at, but for my family that just wasn't the case. While I never felt unsafe, the surrounding neighborhood also...

We stayed here for a week and we really enjoyed our stay. The bed is comfortable however a little too hard for my taste. Rooms are clean, staff is very nice and professional. The breakfast buffé is a 2/5, I actually cooked every morning as supposed to eat here. Semi-manufactured foods and horrible coffee, plus everything was contaminated with gluten...

Easy access to downtown Boston without the high room rates- a great value hotel! Took the subway into the city Centre everytime. Harvard Square is so close, was less than a 10 minute drive. No pool but that's ok as my kids enjoyed the basketball court.

I loved Homewood Suites in Arlingon Mass! It was literally HALF the cost of other hotels near the area and I had DOUBLE the space! I had a fully furnished kitchen, refrigerator, microwave. This place would be great for families travelling together because you could save money by grocery shopping and cooking at the hotel.

Our stay was one of many at the Arlington hotel. Because we require a handicap-accessible room, our choices are limited Our problems with this hotel have been pointed out in the past: tight quarters in the "suite", a dismal lack of counter space in the bathroom for toilet articles, an unfathomable heating/ventilating system and a boring menu of hot breakfasts....

We stayed here recently for a family vacation. One reason we chose this hotel was because it can fit 5 in a room (can request a rollaway bed). It is in a convenient location - much cheaper than hotels in downtown Boston, but we found it relatively easy to get to public transportation from the hotel. You can walk along...
