Great potential
Charles River Inn has a tonne of potential but they have a long way to go. You can see they have been actively working on the building (adding new carpets and bathroom showers). The place is relatively clean but there is a smell of cigarette smoke when the bathroom fan is on in the are not able to turn the fan on or's only on in the morning...very strange. The windows are very old and ours had a crack in it but we were able to open them to get a breeze. The carpet was new in our room and very clean. The linens and towels were clean. No issues with the cleanliness of the room itself. Continental breakfast was available but the space was very small to manoeuver around. Starbucks, McDonalds and IHOP right next door. Location was right off a main street and fairly easy to find if you have a GPS. The driving in Boston is crazy and the streets can be very difficult to follow, even with GPS.

No Problem here
This hotel is fine. We spent the night and got the deluxe double room. Very spacious. It is an old Days Inn. But they are doing there best to make the place look nice. They were very friendly and helpful. They even let us bring our service dog who my daughter needs for anxiety mitigation.

Next to I-HOP! - Great night staff
Staff was very helpful, we had an unfortunate situation with the mirror in the bathroom (Not hotels fault). Front desk manager was extreamly helpful and understatding.

Nice but would have been nice to have something offered for breakfast. I understand a breakfast buffet with during the covid-19 however the 10 pack of pre-packaged or single-serving items would have been nice as it was supposed to be included in the price

Poor 2.0
Had a stink bug as a roomate.
Awful. I wouldnt stay here again if it was free. Just as i was willing to overlook all the cons of this place, a stink bug climbed up the side of my neck as i was lying in bed..
