This is the only hotel in downtown Medford. Walking distance to decent restaurants and coffee shop. Staff is friendly. Morning complimentary breakfast offerings are as expected, but prepared well. Facility is kept clean and tidy. Room is large and a family of 4 didn't trip over each other.
Medford Square is always tricky driving. Entrance to hotel isn't well marked -- one must take a left at light before the hotel and then a right into the parking lot. Hotel room rug was stained and plug in sink didn't work correctly. If you are from out of town visiting Tufts, this may not be the best welcome to the area, especially if you are not a bold, risk-taking driver.
