I'm not a big fan of Holiday Inn's, etc and I wasn't thrilled when my company booked me here, but it was actually quite nice. The hotel is clean, modern, quiet, confortable. The breakfast was fair. The wifi was very good. Above all, the desk and restaurant staff are very friendly and helpful. All in all, I'd return without hesitation.

One of the 3 chain hotels we stay at. We know what to expect here and is close to the highway and just a short drive to Boston if you wish. We were on our way north so this was very handy. Good restaurants close by

The hotel is awful. There is no other word. At least it looks not dirty. The breakfast is terrible. I was given a plastic plate and a cardboard. If you can avoid, do it. The problem lies in the number of accommodations in this area. Any hotel si full almost all the year.

Full points to the desk staff. Nothing but friendly and helpful. We had a big group that needed shuttle rides, and they were completely accommodating to us. The hotel is a bit tricky to get to. It's in a little pocket with a few other hotels. There are no restaurants easily accessible other than the one in the Best Western... More

I had high expectations for this HI Express as I have stayed at many in the past. However, I was very underwhelmed by this hotel. For starters, the rooms are small, the wifi was so slow and connection was lost every two minutes, and the mini fridge barely kept anything cold (tip: do NOT purchase any frozen foods as they...

This place has been renovated since we last stayed 2 years ago. The lobby area was nice. Check-in was painless. Our rooms were in perfect condition, clean, spacious & very nice. We travel to Waltham periodically & will definitely stay here in the future. The price was great.

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
