Historical Traveler Reviews La Quinta Inn & Suites Boston Somerville
We shopped on the computer to find a Hotel & somewhere to leave our van while we went on a cruise. The Tage Inn was recommended to me by a man from Boston and we booked three rooms to stay there before the cruise. We were very pleased with the accomodations, the helpfulness of the staff, and the complimentary breakfast. I would certainly recommend this Hotel. Thank you for adding to our vacation.
Pleasant hotel, unfriendly staff
Our room was large and clean, but the desk staff was overworked and unfriendly -- they were unwilling to answer the most basic questions or assist beyond the barest minimum standards. (Guy the shuttle driver was the only employee I saw smile during our 2 night stay.) The Tage is an acceptable option for travelers who are familar with the Boston area, and are looking for a clean affordable hotel room close to a T stop.
Best prices we could find in the area! Room was great! Great DELUXE continental breakfast. Shuttle to subway was a great convenience. Staff friendly and helpful. Can say nothing bad about our stay. Would definitely go back!
I wish there was a TAGE in every city. Wonderful staff, great rooms, shuttle service to the T, waffles, fruit, cookies. I have never been more pleased with a hotel - especially one within a large metro area. Best of all the price was no different than an economy hotel. A-1 rating!
Loved the services
Stayed at this hotel Aug. 1-8, 2004. The guest rooms were very clean and kept clean during our entire stay. The complimentary breakfast, 24-hr. gourmet coffee in lobby, bottled water, hotel shuttle service were all excellent amenities for us. I would recommend this hotel to anyone desiring to travel to the Boston area who needs to stay at a reasonably priced hotel that has excellent service.
We travel to the Boston area twice a year. The Tage provides consistently good service. The front desk staff, breakfast hostess and other service personnel are outstanding. Some shuttle drivers are better than others (our favorite being Guy), but you can always walk to the T station if the shuttle isn't available at the time you want to go. That has never been a problem for us, though. The breakfast is great, and there is a nice restaurant across the street. Shuttle service takes you to the airport, the T and to area restaurants and shops. Lowes theatres are nearby as well as drugstores and Dunkin Donuts. We wouldn't stay anyplace else and have threatened to move in!
My family of 4 (2 girls: 9 and 13 years old) stayed here for 4 nights in mid-July and we all loved it. The room wasn't as big as I anticipated; the sink area outside the bathroom was extremely small, but a small refrigerator came with the room. The hotel doesn't have a pool, which disappointed my 9 year old. However, the room and the bathroom were immaculate. The complimentary breakfast was the best we ever had anywhere (fresh-made waffles!). We never used the in-room coffeemaker because of the individually-brewed fresh coffee always available in the lobby. There were always apples and oranges available there also, along with cookies around 5pm. The complimentary washing machine and dryer were great! We took the hotel shuttle to the metro station the first day, but ended up walking there and back the rest of our stay. It was only a 10 minute (quite pleasant) walk. I would definitely recommend this hotel, and would stay there again on our next trip. This is one of the best deals among hotels.
No complaints here
We had been to Boston a couple of times and we were not really satisfied with the hotels we stayed in. I did my homework this time and the Tage Inn seemed to be too good to be true based on all the user comments. The comments were right on the mark. The hotel was spotless. Not a hair to be found in the bathroom. They have an ample free continental breakfast. They upgraded us to a suite. We had two large tvs. You could take a free shuttle to the T, or you could walk it in about 10 minutes. In the lobby there is always cookies, fruit, and coffee. Keep in mind that they do not have a swimming pool. This could be a minus for those of you who have small children. On the other hand this could be a plus for those of you who don't. The beds were comfortable and there was nobody running in the halls yelling at the top of their lungs. When in Boston again this is going to be my hotel of choice. They are on top of their game here.
At first I was very skeptical about the quality of the hotel because I had never heard of the name. It turned out to be a very good hotel. The location is great, it's away from the noisy and filthy Boston. The room is large, clean, quiet. At $63 a night, it was a great deal.
Loved it! Just outside of Boston but has a shuttle service.
At the last minute we decided to stop overnight in Boston on our way home from Maine to go whale watching. I did some research on my laptop, while in Maine, for hotel deals in Boston and chose the Tage. The reviews were good and the rates were excellent so I thought, what do we have to lose? It was for only one night. I wasn't sure where Somerville, MA was in relation to downtown Boston but the the reservation line said it was a few minutes away. My hubbie was a little leary thinking it was in a bad part of town and probably a dump. What a surprise! The hotel was beautiful (5 Star beautiful) and clean. The rooms were large and had great ammenities. They offer a free shuttle that will take you to either the "T" or to the harbor for the water taxi. I recommend the "T" because the water taxi's stop running after a certain time. They offere a continental breakfast which you could toast your own bread, bagels etc., make your own pancakes, fruits, juices, coffee and tea. We had so much fun preparing our foods!
I wish we could have stayed longer!

... dry outside- and quickly used the bathroom. By the time I exited the bathroom a couple minutes later, it was pouring down, the wind / rain was swirling, and the thunder was booming. It honestly came out of nowhere. The lightening was lighting up the sky, and it was anything but fun. I had planned on going back across the road for food. No way was I moving until this was over!*

2 hours later and we were finally back on the road. We headed through the state of Vermont (which is extremely pretty) as well as New Hampshire, and finally, after an extremely long time and an extremely numb bum, made it to Boston. Of course the fun didn't stop there, as we then had to catch the subway AND another bus to reach our ...
So....this story starts by me being overly cheap. We decided that we wanted to save some money and fly to Portland, Maine from Seattle, WA. Well it sounded great because we would save just over 100$ one way. We went for it. Well we got to Maine safely, but then had to wait and take a bus to the nearest Bust station. That lasted about 10 minutes. Then we had to spend 40$ for one way tickets to Boston, MA on ...
... home was much quicker taking about 25 minutes. We washed off and cooled off at the pool. We cleaned up, and gathered at the bar. Brent had double date with someone (Make-Up Girl) and dinner in town. Dinner theme was fusion, with lots of sushi and kimchee.

After all is said and done, when the airplane meals are digested, the passport re-entry stamps have been issued and your backpack is haphazardly sprawled out on your bedroom floor, it's always good to take a breather and decompress. I think before anything else, the sheer enjoyment of sleeping in your own bed after weeks of being on the road is welcome. And the hot shower is a great place to reside for at least half an hour, especially in ...
