    Two nights in Cambridge

    I thought the place was way overpriced. The water in the shower had a very light flow. The breakfast was a continental breakfast that had to be ordered and was delivered to the room. The air conditioner was very loud. I would give it 3 stars out of 5

    • Disliked: Room comfort

    Not what you think!

    The room that I stayed in was not very accommodating. The AC was in the living room and only a little fan in the bedroom to deal with the humidity. It wasn’t at all as what to expect in a B&B for the price I spent. The access to room was steep, the bed was ok, and the bathroom was mediocre. No amenities that were even close to luxurious. Only breakfast available was English muffin and coffee. After re checking the site, the room I stayed in wasn’t even included in the photos and wasn’t close to similar to the esthetic of the other rooms.

    There are a lot of things to like about Parkside. The location is unbeatable. Shortwalk to Harvard Yard, Harvard Square, and Harvard Museum of Art. There is a Blue Bicycle stand around the corner. My stay was 12 days, so I opted for a monthly bike pass for $30 dollars. Saved me a lot of time and money with trying to park a rental car or take an Uber. I stayed in room 2, which had adequate room for me. It is up a steep flight of stairs, but the innkeeper David helped me get my bags up. He is extremely knowledgeable about the Cambridge area and a good resource for tips and local history. The room has an en-suite bathroom that was impeccably clean. The bed was quite comfortable, and the room was kept cool with a window unit. There was also a moveable fan. The breakfast was sufficient for me, but if you are want a full American breakfast you will need to go out. The breakfast was delivered at a time chosen between 7:30-8:30; I had an English muffin and coffee every morning. There is a small fridge in the unit, a sitting area with a table, a loveseat, and a small desk. Some things that would have made the stay more comfortable: A small microwave and an ability to darken the room. That was probably my biggest complaint-- there were lights on outside all the time, and with the sun rising around 5 a.m. in the summer, the room was never very dark. There are curtains and old shades, but they do not block the light out well at all. New blackout shades would go a long way!
