This Holiday Inn Express is a very nice facility. The room was extremely clean and very well appointed. This location is close proximity to I95 and many other locations. Convenient to many restaurants and close to Boston.

It looks like a fairly new hotel, but this is an old hotel that has been updated. Small rooms and the bathroom was barely large enough for two. Bed was comfortable, but the breakfast was basic, not as good as other Holiday Inn's or Hampton's...

My normal hotel wasn't available so I " had to" book into the Holiday Inn Express instead. I am glad I did. All my pre- conceived ideas were wrong. My room was spacious and well equipped and in perfect condition- not sure how long the hotel has been build, but it looks almost new. The room had all I need... More

I arrived late and the check-in agent was very accommodating and gave me two vouchers for pantry items for my IHG membership level. The room is clean, spacious and comfortable. Travel to Boston city center is easy if there's no traffic jam, but there are a few tolls.

When I arrived at the Holiday Inn I was surprised to see that it was not what I expected. The hotel was clean and modern, although there was work going on in the lobby it was very clean. When we went to our room it was another surprise, room was large and clean. When we return to the Boston area... More

At the end of our vacation in the last week of August, we decided to stop in Boston for a night as it was enroute to home. We did a last minute booking and got a room in the Boston-Waltham Holiday inn which is about a 20 minute drive from Boston downtown. We got a good deal compared to the... More

I stayed there August 28- September 1. It is quiet, clean and friendly hotel. The breakfast is fresh and lots of choice, all staff in the hotel is friendly and make you feel "home away from home". It would be perfect if gym could be a Bit bigger and have a bike ride exercise.

Spent "3" days in this out of Boston location. You must have a car to stay here, and they don't provide shuttle service. It is about 15-min to the T-train and a good 30-min to downtown Boston. It is close to Harvard campus. It is cheaper to stay here, but you have to stay in the city all day. Parking... More
