Fabulous staff, convenient, reasonably priced

Pros: everything
Cons: it was great
Location: close to MIT and Cambridge, Science Park
Hotel is convenient to MIT and other parts of Cambridge. Room big, comfortable, clean, free wifi, fitness room. Huge breakfast included, nice small bar with selection of food. Staff that goes above and beyond - set up Uber on my phone, then when they learned my mother had passed, brought me flowers and a sympathy card.

Comfortable, New, Efficient & Great Breakfast

We were very pleasantly surprised by the Fairfield. At the price, we did not have high expectations, but the hotel was new, clean, very comfortable, and the included self-serve breakfast (great selection) was a big plus. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is on a somewhat busy road, but silent inside. It is not in a walking area of Cambridge, but a great option given the high prices at other Cambridge hotels-- and is by the bridge to downtown Boston. Will stay there again on our next visit.

Good choice for the price.

Pros: Very affordable. See comment above. Free breakfast and wifi. Very clean.
Cons: The room could have been a bit larger but since I was alone it was tolerable.
Location: The hotel is only two blocks from the Lechmere rail station which connects to the Green Line.A few blocks further is the Boston Museum of Science.
Although the room was small, king size bed took up most of the space, it was clean and served my purpose for a two night stay. Since most hotels in Cambridge had jacked up their rates (some by 100%) because of various colleges' commencements, Fairfield Inn was an affordable option. There is a free breakfast and free wifi.

Excellent Hotel!

Pros: Hotel amenities, cleanliness of the rooms and how welcoming and attentive their staff was.
Cons: I would suggest have a cheaper rate for parking for their guests traveling. Other than that, hotel was truly outstanding.
Location: I loved that the T was within walking distance and in a neighborhood which was safe to walk. The mall is close by if you wish to do some shopping.
My husband and myself visited Boston for a Celtics Game. The Hotel was very modern with excellent amenities. Rooms was outstanding, clean, including Keurig for coffee, Smart TV, and more than enough storage. Staff was very attentive to their guests needs, and treated us with excellent customer service. The hotel room rate did not include parking, and you would have to pay a rate if you travel with a car, but they have a lot of parking if you do. The Train Station (T) is wishing walking distance in a safe neighborhood to walk. Its excellent Inn for couples or families to go. Also, breakfast was EXCELLENT!! Has enough variety for adults and children. I am booking another trip again with this hotel, and this time I will be staying with my children (7 and 4). I truly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Boston.

I cannot believe that I pay so little for this hotel. I'm not just gratuitously raving about this hotel, I'm being serious here. I've stayed in four hotels in the past month, and this one one was absolutely the best. The quality of the cleaning was absolutely superb. The room was incredibly comfortable, and I would definitely stay here again.
