We got the last room in the Holiday Inn Express that was available due to a cancellation. Our rooms were well kept and clean. The beds were soft. Maria at the front desk was excellent. She was extremely polite and helpful.

I just wanted to write a review on my recent stay at this hotel. We were there for World Series of Softball with 12 girls (4 team rooms) and parent rooms. I was touched by the kindness both Wendy and Nakia at the front desk showed all of us including the girls. They were never rude or short - they... More

I came up to Cambridge on a last minute excursion to do some photography of the Eastern Shore. It was a decent hotel and provided the needed amenities for the short time I stayed. There was a dank smell in the room that I was in and unfortunately my room wasn't made up when I was there despite me leaving... More

Mark this 3 and half stars. Good friendly service at check-in and well appointed room for for an Express hotel right on Route 50. The room was clean and fresh though housekeeping did leave some towels in the bathroom from previous guests. Double beds were a little small for me at 6'4" but, that's my fault. The free breakfast in... More

We stayed at this hotel while in the area for a running event. The staff was great. They had breakfast ready for us early and gave us a late checkout so we could come back after the event. This level of service is almost impossible to find and we travel a lot.

We had a meeting in the area and needed 10 rooms total. I spoke with Doug and he reserved the rooms for us. He also was very helpful when I need to add more rooms. He was always willing to help us out. Our travelers said when they got there that it was the easiest check in and out that... More

We had a great stay here on our way to our vacation destination. The hotel lobby was very inviting and our room was spotless and modem. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The young lady at the front desk, Maria, was cheerful and friendly and after we settled in, directed us to a nice downtown restaurant. After returning from the... More

When looking for an economy motel, I like Holiday Inn Express because they are usually newer properties with comfortable accommodations. Holiday Inn Express Cambridge is an older property. The rooms are comfortable with up to date furniture but there is no thermostat. There is a wall air conditioner/heater and you have to play with it to find a comfortable temperature.... More

I stayed here in mid-January to attend a seminar in the area. The hotel is convenient, but the rooms need to be updated. They seemed clean, but you could tell they were in need of some TLC. The shower was dark. The front desk attendant was very nice. I'll probably stay up in Easton on my next trip at a... More

We chose this hotel while attending an event nearby. The front desk and housekeeping staff are very friendly and welcoming. Our room was very clean and we had the same housekeeper the entire stay. The front desk staff gave us great recommendations on area attractions and restaurants while our husbands were at meetings.
