A clean, comfortable place to stay A review of Cambridge Gateway Inn
My wife and I have stayed here multiple times over the past three years when visiting my daughter at Harvard, which is very easy to get to.
However, if you want a nice hotel this is NOT the place to stay. This is just a two story motel that physically is not particularly attractive and has a miniscule unattractive lobby. So why do we keep coming back? Because if all you require is a clean, quiet and comfortable room to sleep in at night, this place is fine, and you can't beat the price for the Boston\Cambridge area. There is also a modest continental breakfast included in the price.
If you plan on spending anytime on the premises, however, pick someplace else, which is what we do on those trips when we know our daughter will want to come back to the room.
In short, this is a good place to sleep, but you would not want to hang around here. For a college visiting weekend it's fine, but not for a vacation.
