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

Clean, comfortable bed, friendly staff, good breakfast, good price. BUT, rust came out of the faucet at first and the tub drained so slowly that I was in ankle deep water at the end of the shower. Showered right before I left, so I don't know if it was fixed. But can I be the first person to have seen... More

When I checked out this morning, the night clerk was absent and then rude. He also refused to provide me with a receipt "because I'd booked online". I've stayed there every year for six years, to visit family. It's odd how one person can be so off-putting that a hotel loses business but I can't imagine being comfortable about staying... More

I truly recommend this inn! Staff are friendly, helpful and very nice. They provided us with great information related to Boston, parking, subway etc. Room accommodations were very good, very clean and tidy; parking was easy, and the price much better than in other Inns I had previously stayed in other states. Although breakfast ended at 9:30 am, free coffee... More
