I really don't like this Holiday Inn Express and I typically love them. It's under construction and so there are several inconveniences such as the breakfast room doesn't have a sitting area but rather a separate area to sit and eat. The breakfast this morning seemed to not have the choices that it should have, it was underwhelming and then... More

The staff were very friendly and welcoming. I had a great time. It makes you feel right at home. Breakfast was fresh and great. The rooms were clean and well kept. I highly recommend business travelers to book it. The location was a great experience just 15 minutes by car away from the City of Boston.

My brother and I stayed at Holiday Inn Express Waltham to visit colleges nearby the Boston area. When we checked out, we had no idea that something was mailed behind. I got a call from the head of housekeeping who said that they found my brother's computer charger. It was in the mail and received a week later. Great followup... More

A 3 night/midweek stay. Desk staff was friendly & helpful upon check-in. Convenient "on & off" the highway. This property has definitely been updated but evidence of it's overall age is apparent. Overall, we wouldn't discourage future guests of the H.I Express in Waltham as it served our needs but know that your experience will be in line with the... More

This hotel was very clean and newly renovated. I thought it was brand new, that is how nice it was. The staff was excellent. Our room was great. Got the 2 double beds and it was plenty big enough. We were just there for the weekend for Parents weekend at a nearby school. The breakfast was the typical HIE breakfast,... More

An over lighted, low ceiling room with an under lit bathroom. You are in your shadow to use the mirror in the bathroom There was just enough room to walk between the wall and the bed. At $162 + tx per night for this least expensive room seemed excessive. We have stayed at the hotel before, also staying in the... More

Needed a place to stay for a night near Brandeis and ended up here. Basic accommodations, free parking, free wifi and free breakfast. Hotel delivered on all of that, so I can't complain. But there was nothing particularly distinguishable about this property as compared to any of the 3-4 other places in the same area. This looks like an older... More

This was not my first choice of hotels in Waltham; I wanted to be closer to Brandeis University, but everything closer was too expensive, sold-out, or charged for parking. I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. It was newly-renovated from the lobby to the rooms. The lobby has a fireplace and comfortable chairs. I had a room with a king... More

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.
