Don't settle for less-find something better
I was placed in an odd back area of the property that seemed a little dirty and not very nice. I was also told breakfast was not included since I booked it online and did not even know that was not an option. The owner was a little surly and not very welcoming. I would not recommend this location.

Pretty good
All in all, a pretty good place to stay. The only negative was that the room was hot with not ventilation and the beds were okay, not overly comfortable.

Highly recommend you pass on making a reservation
Hotel was in a good location to walk to most of the tourist sites in Cambridge, but the room was terrible. Extremely small room with little or no space to even open your suitcase. The bathroom was the smallest in any guest room or B&B we have ever seen. Taking a shower proved difficult because it was hard to even turn around. Facilities were well below par compared to rooms of this type. The price was way too expensive for the conditions and value one would expect at this location.
