I decided to try a hotel in Waltham for my visit to the Cambridge area. Hotels in Cambridge and Boston are much more expensive. This Holiday Inn express is much like all others which is a good thing. We were greeted by reception and they had noted and planned for our request for a quiet room. Unfortunately, there were a... More

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, our hotel stay was just wonderful. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, the staff was friendly and helpful, the breakfast was great. I will be staying here next year again when we travel to Boston to watch our son wrestle again. It was a great hotel, so if... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Waltham in February following a large snow storm and then experienced a snowfall while there. We felt safe and comfortable and were able easily to call out for delivery for food one night. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful; we especially want to thank Charli for her warm hospitality. The hotel... More

Stayed for business so location was perfect, but if you're here for the city (and don't have a car) you'll be a bit stuck. Staff were really friendly and helpful, room and bathroom both clean, big flat screen tv, good coffee machine in room, and heating that you can change. Breakfast room is functional, and included breakfast buffet is basic... More

Typical Holiday Inn Express quality and service. Came in late at night for a one night stay on business, the front desk was polite and the room was already available. The room itself was very small, I was on the first floor with cars directly outside the window. The king sized bed took up most of the room but it... More

Holiday Inn Express hotels in general are reliably attractive, clean, have personable and helpful staff and are located in convenient locations. The Boston/Waltham property was no different. They have a small but decent workout room and free continental breakfast. We also got a very good rate using our AAA membership. Our only complaint was our room was uncomfortably warm at... More

We had a very nice stay at this hotel. It's close to Boston, yet far enough away to take advantage of a smaller town feel and good prices! Clean, modern, good breakfast, safe area. Can't ask for much more than that at this rate!

I would recommend this hotel, no charge for parking and a fine breakfast included! It was convenient for our purpose of stay and the staff was pleasant. The room attendants couldn't speak English but overall, we made out fine
