Very clean hotel with ample free parking. There was some construction next door but did not affect the parking or the noise levels. Very nice free breakfast with some hot items and plenty of to go items also. My kids enjoyed the breakfast and the room. Staff was wonderful and friendly! Great stay!

This hotel is great! Rooms were so nice, bed was comfy as well as pillows. Breakfast was surprisingly good!! They have an awesome pancake machine. Staff was also super accommodating they let us check in early and recommended a great restaurant. We went to this hotel because VOWS bridal store is only 15 mins away.

We often stay at HI Express locations. We chose this one for its location near Cambridge and the other Boston suburbs we were visiting. Caveat: The Rte 128/I-95 traffic is awful for many hours a day, so you'd be wise to take the local streets through Watertown into Cambridge. No surprises; it is a standard HIE with a decent, not...

This is a very comfortable and wonderful place to stay just outside the Boston Area. Clean, comfortable and friendly staff. Good breakfast with eggs, breakfast meat and fresh pancakes. Great place if you want to explore Boston and the surrounding area.
