Extremely helpful and friendly staff. 24 hour parking access.
The rooms were spacious, view was great, beds were very comfortable. Unbelievably expensive rate for the property. They charged me more than the maximum stated on the door in the room!! And then I had a $35 parking fee on top! (You're captive due to the location, which can be tricky to access off Soldiers Field Rd if you're driving.) could not get the TV to work, or the in room phone! For the price everything should be perfect!
35 dollars for parking for one night. Hotel workers protesting at 7am woke us up. Staff unlocked our door and came in while we were still in bed.
The suite was a genuine suite, with a bedroom and a full sitting room. It was very quiet and therefore restful. The location could be a problem for someone unfamiliar with the area. It's pretty isolated--with the Mass Turnpike on one side and Storrow Drive on the other, and it's on the "wrong" side of the Charles River from Cambridge. You might say it's in the middle of nowhere, and you can't walk to anything close. In fact, it's only a 10 minute walk from Central Square and a 10-15 minute walk from Harvard Square. Knowing the area, I had no problem with it, and with excellent weather, the walks were quite pleasant. But someone unfamiliar with the area might want another hotel. Taxis were readily available, by the way.
Print check in service. Love the room, comfortable.
The hotel was outstanding. The staff were the most helpful and professional that we experienced on this trip. It was perfectly located between Cambridge and Boston.
The hotel was always a good temperature Lack of information in room about facilities and choices
The hotel was very nice, staffordable were friendly and hedlpful, roooroom was great. The iron in the room was pretty low quality and couMD donwith an upgrade. Also, it was much further from downtown Boston and publicensed transport than I thought It would be.
Liked the staff, very accommodating and professional. The layout of the rooms really feels comfortable, less like a hotel. The location works for me because it's close to my daughter. Love the cookies. Furniture in living room portion of room could use a good cleaning or update. It's a bit noisy, so if you like it very quiet, probably wouldn't work for you. Restaraunt menu selection is minimal also for the room service.
Nothing Over price for the room, no continental breakfast, area location was too busy ... Too expense hotel doesn't offer continatal breakfast for that price
Size of the suite; view of the Charles River; gym facility; proximity to Cambridge and to downtown Boston by car (but not by transit). It is not at all close to a T station.
Location, comfort and price Was not told view from rooftop was only at night. Thought parking fee was high
A window I could open, to cool my room down before I went to bed.
It did not rain on me! More like a transient htl.
Friendly staff Quite out of the way for city centre, stayed in south wing which is complicated to reach from lobby, could do with fresh paint
Decent, basic accommodations. Great Chinese restaurant on premises - authentic, not "American" Chinese.
The cleanliness and comfort of rooms werte excellent Room opposite escalator 505 was very noisy due to noisy erscalator
Nothing specific but I kindly like the location. Internet service was very bad, Lobby was boring !!
Nabil as my driver
proximity to downtown and Harvard; price was good when compared to other locations in the area that were close to the city core (1 mile walk to Harvard Central Subway, 20 minutes after thta to major points in the city. This place was definitely on a budget. There was no Internet available in the lobby; the plumbing in my room needed work; it had a bit of a rundown feel to it. It is a 2-star trying to pass itself on as a 3-star. But for the location how can you complain.
I liked the easy check-in and reservation system, and the on-site free parking. I also enjoyed free internet signal and the ease of signing on to it I didn't tlike the fact that I could hear other people's plumbing (toilet flushing especially) that seemed to go on all night long and to come from every direction. It made my rest less restful.
the room was big and full of light, the atmosphere was very nice and the position was quite comfortable!
The service was very good. The sound pollution, so many sounds, people singing, talking and walking in the corridor. To many gypsum walls in the hotel structure is not good for sound in bed time. By other hand the bathroom haved a big lick in the roof when the people in upper floor is taking a bath...
Although the room was clean, which is excellent, the bath tub was a bit old. After all: a good value for the price. By the way, the chineese restaurant on the first floor was really really good. My laundry bag was not picked up. I got into some troubles because of that.
Good location - whether from South station, or any of the colleges. The entrance was leaking. It was the height of the Boston infamous winter and water was pouring down the entrance. Anyway, I guess this was due to the weather again - the owner may not have planned this level of snow. So in that sense, my review may understate the place.
Price and location were good, relatively close to MBTA transportation. The sheets were clean, and there were no visible signs of bedbugs or other pests. The rooms could have been cleaner, the hallways smelled like cigarette smoke, and the shared bathroom had a bit of mold on the ceiling of the shower.
The hotel was not too far away from Fenway Park. Since that is what I was going to do, it worked out perfect: less than two miles away.
The room was pretty.
This Inn was what I expected for the money. It was overall cute and pretty cozy, and you got a private room for a low price. I might check out some of the area hostels before going back, because you do sacrifice cleanliness and newness for having a private room. Hostels would be about the same price, but be cleaner and more up to date shared dorm style rooms. The beds werent the nicest, and some of my pillowcases were dirty when I arrived. Additionally, the plugs were old and difficult to use to charge my phone. Overall, it was cozy and about as nice as I expected for the price. I also didn't mind the shared bathroom, which might be an issue for some people.
The price and parking were good. Did not know it would have shared bath; no TP TO the whole time I was there, no towels, freezing cold. The room had a kitchenette but the plug to the fridge didn't reach the wall so it was useless. Also no mirror in the bedroom, so I had to do my makeup in the car. Very very noisy, did not sleep at all second night. Sounded like the entire building was partying.
I like here because the owner is really kind people also i could believe him so that's why i recommend the Farrington to you guys.
the staff was helpful the place was an absolute dump, with no screens on the windows, filthy towels and sheets. something was oozing through the ceiling, unquestionably the worst place I've ever spent a night that I actually had to pay for
WiFi work well :-) Interesting retro design. This is not more than hostel with small rooms. Quite chip, so other guest may make you some troubles. No climate control also is troublesome in the end of June, especially in room under roof.
Staff was courteous and helpful. Small fridge, microwave, sink, counter for eating, in room. Shared bathroom, bring your own toiletries.
I think it is cheaper! But it is not the case. The furniture in room is too simple, there are no chairs. There are some strange smell in room, but I can not open the window. There is no air- conditions. It's hot. You can repair the window and install a air- conditions.
there was no cleaning service
