I was please with the host (Maria) at the breakfast area for both days stay. The food was excelent and plenty. The room was always clean and utensils were always available. I was very impressed with the way the food was presented and how the host (Maria) made it a point to replenish the food.

I usually don't stay in Holiday Inns, because I'm at Hilton member, & I like to get my points. I used Priceline to get this room, and I was really pleased with what I found.

Chose this hotel for its great price and proximity to Boston. Location was great. People at check-in desk looked and acted professional (felt like I was checking into Ritz Carlton!). Room was spotless and beds were very comfortable. Complimentary breakfast the following morning was delicious!!! I highly recommend staying here.

Our family had had a death, and needed a larger meeting place than my home could hold. In-laws were guests at Holiday Inn Express, Waltham. My sister-in-law asked if family and friends could gather in the guest breakfast area, as, predictably, it would be unused at 4 pm. They agreed, without hesitation! Their decision helped to make a sad event... More
