"comfortable / relatively close access to transport"
Clean, spacious ,affordable quiet, access to entertainment on xfinity, free wifi closeness to restaurants, shopping and tourist sites especially the harvard square relatively close access to the transportation system.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was very pleasantly surprised by this place. I've stayed in 4-star hotels with less comfortable beds and I don't know if I've ever had such a nice pillow. I slept great all 3 nights. The hall is a bit dingy, but the room was clean and comfortable (and spacious). The continental breakfast was awful, though it at least had yogurt and OJ. For the price […] is definitely go back.

the location is good, very closed to the bus connection. the price is googd. the breakfast and the wifi are good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We dropped off our son at Boston University. The hotel was only 15 minutes away and an easy ride to the university. The price was fantastic. After seeing the prices in Boston, the price was more than reasonable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for a quick trip!!!"
Friendly Staff, clean rooms and good location. We needed to stay in Watertown for a business meeting and this hotel was perfect for what we needed. Close to the major highway and a quick drive to Boston downtown. Watertown is adorable and we will stay at this hotel again for the price and convenience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok if you want to budget"
Our room was in the basement with little to no cell service and the wifi they provided wasn't very good. The breakfast they provided was really good. The woman who checked us in looked was dressed very inappropriately with her shirt very low cut, inappropriate for a job. That almost made us leave the hotel if it wasn't a 2 hour drive homeGenuine Expedia guest review
It was okay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't waste your money..."
Bath tub, carpet, towel, bed,..., everything was dirty and old. I spent too much money for this bad & old hotel... Don't waste your money on this hotel...Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel very far from many places"
The hotel was very far from all the places we wanted to visit. You'd first have to take the bus and then the T to any nearby places. Taxi costs about $40 + tips. The night shift lady was always talking to her boyfriend on the phone. The don't have vending machine so you have to go to the front desk to buy water and snacks. The lady made us wait over […] 30 mins to get water and shampoo which the maids sometimes forget. The also don't have shaving blades so bring one if you are staying here. No microwave in the room. Also, don't let the hotel staff get you a taxi. They'll bring you the worst ones who don't take cc. Just take a taxi from the street it's much better. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It was good enough. However, the receptionist was not quite friendly when we came. Nothing bad, but she could be a little more nice. Everything else was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Inexpensive hotel near Boston"
Our room was on the second floor and the stairs looked sort of shabby. There was no elevator, but the room was clean and comfortable. The Super 8 was right across Arsenal Street from the place where we had rented a car. We had heavy suitcases so we couldn't take public transportation to Logan Airport. We called Smurfs Shuttle and they took us to Logan. […] It all worked out well at a modest cost compared to the big hotels near the airport. We also enjoyed walking around Watertown which is usually a peaceful suburb of Boston. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place near Harvard and MIT"
We had a good stay visiting Boston, MIT and Harvard. Easy acess to the hotel and nice neighbourhood.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Inaccessible motel not worth staying"
1. Accessibility is terrible. 2. They advertise as WiFi available in all rooms. We could not access the net and the management gave a lame excuse. 3. We were given a basement room. Thumping noise upstairs the entire night; couldn't sleep well.Genuine Expedia guest review
It's comfortable and clean. We enjoyed it after a long-day trip and slept well.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Convenient - price ok"
Desk clerk was totally unsympathetic, almost unresponsive, to any complaints that I witnessed. My only complaint was the fact that you could not connect to the "free" Wi-Fi. They had an issue with their captive portal so you could not logon. The desk clerk's only response was "the manager is aware of it". We were there for 3 days and it was never fixed. […] There was an Xfinity Wi-Fi with a very strong signal from somewhere if you wanted to pay for it. Desk clerk did not acknowledge the presence of this signal. Anyway, place was okay. If you are needing Internet in your room - go somewhere else. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very happy with this budget option"
We stayed here to bar hop in Boston for a Bruins Stanley Cup playoff game. You could catch a bus out front or for an avg. $15 (with tip) cab ride (McCue's? very local, very fast cab company) get dropped off in Harvard Square and take the T into the city. The late night cab ride back from the city at bar close was about $25 (with tip). Covered area to […] park your car under. This hotel was so clean, every where you went it smelled like clean laundry! Bed and room very comfortable. Watertown area very nice, pleasant suburb of Boston. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"OK for a short stay"
The location of this hotel is convenient. It even has a covered parking garage. The breakfast served here is generous and more balanced than many other hotels serviing complementary continental breakfast. There is free WIFI, but the signal is very unstable. I have to refresh the connection every 2 minutes. The room service was not that great. They did […] not replenish the toiletory items. They even bumped my toothbrush off.

"good stay if visiting Boston"
this was a good pick to stay in when I went to Boston for work .It was close so the drive in was quick but far enough out so it wasn't so hectic. Will try for here next time I have to be in Boston!1Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room clean,comfortable and nice. Location great and price very reasonable for a last minute booking. The customer service guy I think was tired or sleepy. He didn't even say hello or welcome us...other than this we liked super 8 and we will book future rooms in the future.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"This motel was awful!"
We were very disappointed that this motel was on hotels.com. The building was rundown. This was a franchise and not a chain property. It looked like they were in the middle of a diy remodel. Some of the walls in our room had been painted, but not all. The unit was NOT very clean. They hadn't dusted or wiped down the furniture in weeks. We would have […] stayed somewhere else if possible, but all surrounding properties were booked for this busy graduation weekend in Boston. Plus, this property was NOT inexpensive. I have stayed in downtown Boston for the same price in the past. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"price and convenience to Ma. Pike"
good hotel for the price. Bathroom could use some improvement.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
you get what you pay for, biggest complaint was that unless you are 90 lbs. soaking wet you will not fit on the toilet stuffed in the small space between the wall and the sinkGenuine Hotels.com guest review
When you check in there is a sign that says $150.00 fine for smoking on property. But as you enter the motel to the left of the door there was a huge pile of cigerette butts. Hair all over the bath tub,carpet dirty.Very stained sheets. Clean but stained. NEVER AGAIN!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Watertown Super 8 motel."
I stayed at room 220 that is close to the intersection of Arsenal and Irving, and very noisy early in the morning by the traffic. Sink in the room has no hot water, no matter how long you let water run. Carpet is very dirty. For the price in Boston, that is fine for me. The free breakfast is not too bad.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It was cheap!"
I needed a place to stay for cheap near Boston. This fit that description! There was free parking, wifi, and a small continental breakfast 7-10. Nothing fancy, you could tell its not the most modern place ever but I guess you get what you pay for. My room was located next to the exit/entrance which I felt made it very noisy in my room. If I had a longer […] stay I would have asked to switch rooms. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"great super 8"
Great location if you have a car. Free parking and internet. Easy access to mass pike and cambridge. Clean large rooms are rare on this area. One of the better super 8s.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Inexpensive stay in Boston"
Staff was helpful and friendly. Housekeeping did a great job each day and gave me extra coffee when asked. It is an older place and still has some smoke oder in the hallway. Otherwise clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Don't stay here"
I will never stay again. After being kept up all night by a loud lobby family I asked if I could change rooms the second night because the noise started happening again at 10:00pm. I was refused by the desk clerk and, when I asked to speak to the manager, was treated with derision and ridicule to the extent I felt humiliated and threatened. My first […] thought was to call the police but then I decided to leave immediately and on my way out dropped the key on the desk. The desk clerk intercepted me outside and threw the keys at me! And then started yelling racial epithets claiming I was racially biased!! I felt physically threatened and was ready to defend myself, but luckily he backed off. Thankfully, hotels.com took care of me when I found myself shelter-less in Boston, but I highly recommend you do not go here! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for groups with vans"
We brought two vans with 15 people. They have an open lot to park in and the rooms are pretty sound proof so I didn't worry about the students not getting enough sleep because of outside sound. The cleaning supplies' smells almost moved me to tears each time I walked in. ...strong enough to create a headache.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Cheap Sleep"
Great for a cheap stop over on your way into Boston. Gets the job done. Low cost.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good value - next to bus stop into city"

"Good hotel for good price"
Indoor parking a plus, modern, updated rooms, could use new bedding/bedspread. Needs updating in the entrance/lobby, stairs tiled, a bit dirty. Staff very nice, great breakfast included, for the price in that area, can't beat it!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not so Super 8"

"close to Boston College"
Overall very nice staff. Got a call in the early morning hours telling me we left the light on in the inside of our car which was very nice. Also got extra help from staff member behind the desk in the morning helping us find directions to our destination.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Well maintained and basic"
It seems the Boston suburbs, even relatively affluent ones like Newton, Watertown and Waltham, manage to keep their look unassuming. As soon as my mom said "Where would they put a motel around here," the Super 8 popped up among what seemed to be residential and commercial stuff as well as a river bed. The plant itself was a bit slapdash, stairs and […] downstairs rooms and such placed wherever they fit, and no lobby to speak of. The garage was just an exterior area sheltered by an extanded second floor. But the room itself was scrupulously clean and well tended. Staff were polite and pleasant. WiFi was included. If you're looking for a place to hang your hat and rest your bones in the course of a specific event nearby, this is as good a place for the price as you're likely to find.

"A positive experience"
Convenient, affordable and comfortable. No complaints!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
3 night stay at this motel. Front Desk hospitality is awesome. They are friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. They have a free breakfast that ends at 10am with a large variety of choices. Free coffee in the room. Except for one neighbor who kept slamming door (which you find at most hotels), it was very quiet. (tip: turn on the […] heat/fan in the room and it drowns out noise) Housekeeping does an excellent job. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this motel for those on a budget.

Nothing special but good priceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"working person's stay"
The hotel is in need of some maintenance. Rugs in the halls are quite tattered. There is a covered parking garage which is very convenient. There was no inclement weather to shield me from during my trip but it was still appreciated. And as the weather cools a car outside gets frost on the window and one in the garage doesn't. So avoided the aggravation […] of scraping windows. The continental breakfast is limited and the dining area, right in the entry way by the front desk is tiny. There are only two small tables and eight chairs. And there are at least two rooms with doors that open right into this area. I recommend asking for a room on the second floor. That would minimize noise from foot traffic of guests coming and going. When I found the hotel I expected I would hear quite a bit of traffic noise. I didn't and that was a pleasant surprise. My room was above the garage and on the side away from the road. I'm sure that contributed to the quiet but still it was a surprise that traffic noise wasn't apparent. Maid service was inconsistent. One day they didn't replace the shampoo, another the coffee and another the cream and sugar kit. The bed was always made and the towels, towels, toilet and sink always cleaned. All in all I'd say it's a decent if somewhat tattered budget hotel. As long as I'm on my current budgets I'd stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A reasonable value in an expensive market"
Hotels in Boston are the most expensive in the country! The Super 8 in Watertown is close to downtown and Cambridge in a nice neighborhood. Although the hotel building is a little old, it was very clean and comfortable and I'd patronize them again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
