Great hotel with lots of character and history. Amazing breakfast too.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Worst room given to my guest"
Room 310 was given top third floor, by spending 400USD, you cannot ask your guest to stay in such typically shaped room of the attic. I just hated that my guest had to stay there for a night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Place in Kendall Area"
Clean and comfortable room. Great staff. Great breakfast. Location? Close to the red line, but not in the middle of city bustle. Takes 15 min or less to get to the middle of the city.Genuine Expedia guest review

"A nice hotel next to MIT."
We stayed one night at Kendall hotel this week. It was a very pleasant experience. The hotel is located right in Kendall square and next to MIT. The room is clean and the bed is very comfortable. The hotel staff are friendly. The complimentary breakfast was very good! We'll come back again next time!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quiet, excellent breakfast, close to train station"
I loved this hotel. The rooms were large and comfortable. The included breakfast was so convenient and first rate! The room was quiet from outside and A/C noise. It is close to a train station that connects to everywhere you want to go! Very relaxing!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Just very nice!!"
The Kendall Hotel was very enjoyable for my wife and me. The room was very nice and the bed was very comfortable! The complimentary breakfast every day was fantastic! The in house restaurant was very good for dinner. The service was wonderful, all connected to the hotel were very nice, friendly, and accomodating!! The Kendall is not in the heart of […] tourist attractions, doesn't have fantastic views, and is not shiny and brand new. It is just very nice! It is one or two T stops (which is very easy to maneuver through!) from many attractions. Right in the heart of MIT and Harvard! The service and comfort of the room alone was enough to ensure that we will look no further than The Kendall for our next trip to Boston!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Love Thy Kendall"
If you're looking for a boutique hotel close to sights but just enough out of the way for some quiet time, the Kendall Inn is the place for you. Conveniently located across the Charles River in Cambridge, MA, the Kendall is a refurbished firehouse located a small block from the Kendall T stop. In just a short ride on the T, you can find yourself in […] any of the local neighborhoods in Boston. The staff at the Kendall is professional, courteous and eager to please. The restaurant, the Black Sheep, served up excellent dinners and our rate included the breakfast buffet with all the fixins. This is a must stay hotel! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

My daughter and I had a fantastic time. The hotel was lovely, the morning breakfast buffet, extremely generous. Lovely decor and fun with the firehouse theme. I highly recommend The Kendall Hotel and Black Sheep restaurant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Kid heads to college"
The prefect place for an overnight stay while dropping off the kid to go to college. Metro/Train proximity made it the perfect location, with nearby casual dining for snacks and light meals. Don't miss The Black Sheep restaurant, was totally impressed. A very cool place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
unique hotel in Cambridge, close to our destinationGenuine Expedia guest review
"Well located, well run but room for improvement."
Breakfast: quite good selection. Attractive decor. Water pressure in shower: a bit weak.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The Kendall was a lovely surprise"
The lobby was small and a bit crowded, which didn't make for a great first impression. But the lady at the check-in was professional, accommodating, and friendly, so I took heart. My room was not huge, but even with a king sized bed, it was large enough to not feel cramped or crowded. The bathroom was smallish, but nicely done and comfortable. The bed […] was quite comfortable, the AC worked, the TV worked, everything worked! The decor was a little funky, with a hodge-podge of art, furniture, wallpaper, knickknacks, etc. I'm generally a fan of eclectic and mixing, but there was no real unifying theme, so it didn't quite work. But I'm picky. The location was great, the room was great, the people were great, and sitting at a small table outside in front of the restaurant sipping coffee and reading the Sunday Boston Globe was heavenly! I would definitely go back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to MIT,local biotech,restaurants"
Boutique hôtel immediately adjacent to the biotechnology part of the MIT campus, with great proximity to fantastic restaurants and the world-famous private biology research institutions and pharmaceutical houses. Ready access to public transportation, making access to Boston's cultural, historical, commercial, financial, recreational, and sports venues […] extremely convenient.

"Best hotel in Boston area"
I've lived in Boston and still travel there quite often for work and this is by far my favorite hotel I've stayed at. Everyone is so nice there and it feels more like I am staying at a family member's house than a hotel which makes being away from home on business easier. The free breakfast (not just continental either; eggs, bacon, fruit, oatmeal, […] pancakes, etc. etc. etc.) was fantastic and I was super happy I didn't have to go out and find something to eat on my own. Love this place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Well located New England hotel"
The hotel is conveniently located in the middle of Kendall square. Decor is very New England (flags, pictures from the 1800's, etc.). There is a restaurant on the first floor and free coffee at all times.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful stay at a quaint, unique hotel!"
We stayed at the Kendall during a visit to Boston for my fiance's daughter's college graduation. The first room we were put in was very small and confined. We asked about another room the next morning and, within a couple hours, we were given a fabulous, spacious room. The staff was friendly and accommodating, the breakfast was very good and the ambiance […] at this historic building delightful. We enjoyed sitting in the cozy lobby area visiting with other guests. We will definitely stay there again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Horrible staff and service with bad attitude.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Motel or Hotel?"
What? Is this a hotel? Even a motel is better than this! First, it's not save at all. Anyone can get in by taking the elevator from the garage. What's more, services are bad. You have to ring the bell for services, and a lazy guy will come out after minutes and ask what you want rudely. You even have to ask for hot water since you can't make it in your […] room, and they don't have it in the lobby. When check out, the lazy guy just said: you are free to go... Yes, just one sentence. For the garage, it only have space for compact cars. If you drive a big car, you can't get in without hitting something, and that poor garage cost you 25 per day! The motel (or hotel, whatever) is bad but not cheap at all! For the same price, I can go across the street and stay in Marriott! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely boutique hotel"
Wonderful ambiance. Charming hotel. Loved it, and will definitely stay again!Genuine Expedia guest review
the room was very small but clean and nice the breakfast was amazingGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is ideally situated -- we walked everywhere. Our room was very large and the bed very comfortable. Our one and only suggestion for improvement is to replace the shower heads so there is decent water pressure.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for the price"
Next to MIT and subway is half a block from front door of hotel. It cost $2.50 to travel to any one point in the city. Hotel was very comfortable and furnishings in each room were unique and amazing. Free breakfast was nice and staff were all very professional. We stayed during music festival and price was probably $100 less than other hotels 5 minutes […] away (by subway) across the Charles River. Also, limited parking in garage below hotel for compact car, which was another huge plus for us. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall the stay was okay. The best part was the breakfast. I was not pleased to walk into a room that was not cleaned. We had to wait to get reassigned to another room. All we wanted to do was relax after traveling 10 hours.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice hotel. Very convenient location.Genuine Expedia guest review
Lovely hotel. I definitely will stay there again. The breakfast, in particular was wonderful!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"wonderful small hotel"
A jewell box of historical character...very near MIT campus and minutes from downtown Boston ....right on the redline if you like subway travel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fun place to stay"
The hotel, converted from a old fire house, was very nicely done, clean and very comfortable. Staff was the best, very willing to help. Transit station just across the street and plenty of close places to grab a bite. While a bit pricey, still less so than staying at any comparable place in Boston.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wish I could give an excellent review"
So looking forward this stay. However, it was marred from the beginning. First, the good. The lobby decor is quaint and in keeping with the fire house theme. We loved it. Breakfast in the morning was always good and varied. Coffee was quite good! The bad. We paid in full in advance for two specific rooms. I called days in advance to confirm. I also […] called the same day due to a flight delay. When we arrived I was informed that both rooms were given away and we would have to accept lower rooms. That basically ruined our stay. These rooms were so small two people couldn't be in the bathroom at the same time. There was no closet, only a 12 inch rod drilled into the wall. We had clothes laid over every inch of space, as they couldn't be out into the tiny set of drawers. We had to move sideways around the bed. I did ask for the momentary difference, which was insignificant to say the least. It here was no excuse for not setting aside pre-paid rooms. I wouldn't stay here again.

"Boutique Hotel with Character"
Kendall Hotel is an efficient short term stay hotel with internet and breakfast included so there are no extras on your bill if you so wish. Very small rooms with no wardrobes, but clean and functional.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel. Easy access to the T"
I stayed here for a long weekend with family to explore the city, and this was a great find. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was great and the access to the T couldn't have been better. Highly recommend if you don't need to stay in downtown Boston or are looking for a hotel in Cambridge.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
THE OVER ALL ROOM WAS GREAT, THE BED WAS A LITTLE TOO SOFT FOR LIKES, BUT YOU V=CAN'T PLEASE EVERYONE, I KNOW, THE ROOM AIR WAS ALSO STUFFY, BUT AFTER THE FIRST NIGHT WE GOT THE AC AJUSTED.Genuine Expedia guest review
"delightful boutique hôtel downtown"
Very pleasant stay in this restored firehouse in downtown Cambridge. Near MIT but not much of anything else. Garage a plus as is fine b'fast. Staff is cordial and efficient; onsite restaurant is surprisingly good also.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
When I originally booked the hotel, I was concerned because it is old and not in the city center. However, they do a great job of keeping the quaint charm, while making the place very livable. The included breakfast is the best I've had. The hospitality was excellent and the hotel is located just a short walk from the T station. Public transit is quick […] and easy into the city. Cambridge is a lovely and scenic town. I would recommend The Kendall to anyone visiting Boston!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Love the hotel.the only problem is that I'm up there often!! And there is no other hotel I would rather stay. Just that the prices vary too much. I wish I could get get some Mind of rate that is more consistent. I have tried many hotels in that area. And I partial to that one.
