The best part of this area is the restaurant called Gustazos which is just down the street. That place is amazing.

My go-to hotel when I visit Cambridge. Rooms are small, but new, clean and reasonably well-equipped. Staff are friendly and check-in/check-out are quick and painless.

Great stay
Very very clean, friendly staff.

Porter Square Hotel, Cambridge
Fine if you like tiny rooms with hard beds.
Was staying for a long weekend and the location was convenient. The rooms are tiny and cramped, and there are some definite flaws to the design/where things are placed. The shower door didn't close all the way, which led to the bathroom floor getting wet, and the linens all had stains on them, which made things feel dirty. There was no place in the hotel to get water and while there is a CVS across the street, this seemed odd. The beds were tiny and hard as rocks, but if you just need a place to sleep it may be a good option for you. That said, I can't imagine I would stay here again or recommend it.
