I'll leave aside the hassles of rooms being ready late etc., they were very busy last weekend and I would have been happy to cut them some slack if it weren't for the multiple flea bites I and my wife received during our stay. My wife, a physician, purposely didn't tell me she was getting bitten because she didn't want... More

I would like to give a nice compliment to Maria the Hispanic lady who works in the kitchen. My mom spilled coffee and she came right away to clean the spill. Being a housekeeping supervisor myself responding quickly to spills eliminates falls and ensures public safety. Well done Maria! Thank you.

This location is perhaps the overall best value in Waltham. Over the last year they renovated the common areas, hallways, fitness center, lobby and the breakfast area. The rooms are in very good shape and the bedding is good quality as required by the IHG Standards. I have stayed here for about 75 nights so far in 2015 and have... More

We were thrilled with our stay. As soon as we walked into the hotel, we were greeted with smiles from the front desk staff who quickly and professionally checked us in. The newly renovated lobby and breakfast room are gorgeous - bright and cheerful. And our room was immaculate. We left before breakfast was served but the hostess, Maria, offered... More

The service at this Holiday Inn Express is exceptional. From making a phone call to the hotel to come in a night early to directions to mass transportation the staff was very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the Boston area and doesn't want to stay at an expensive hotel downtown

A very nice, clean hotel. Location was right off the interstate and close to several of the sites we wanted to visit. Lexington and Concord are just up the freeway a short drive. Breakfast staff(Maria) did a great job of being helpful and friendly.

We have had stays here over many years. They appear to have redone the first floor and it looks fresh and new. Stacks of local papers and bowls of mints show they care about guest comfort. Our room was typical HI Express, which is to say clean and functional. This hotel is located on a busy intersection and next to... More

We have stayed here many times over the past seven years. Excellent value for the room rates. As for location, if you're a college parent, 10 minutes to Brandeis, 20 minutes to Tufts, and less than 30 minutes to many other colleges in Boston area. Several nice restaurants within 5 minutes and all of Waltham is within 15. And since... More

Found this hotel because I was going to a football camp in Waltham. Place was full of football players and coaches, but it never ran out of anything. Breakfast was pretty good for a hotel, eggs, sausage (pork & turkey), bagels, English muffins, yogurts, muffins, fresh juice, fresh fruit, cinnamon rolls. Staff was considerate, if I needed anything from the... More
