We were happy with our choice to stay here while in Boston. It was an easy 2 block walk to get on the T. Our room was clean and had plenty of room for 4 of us. Plus, it's always nice to have a frig and microwave in the room. Breakfast was the normal stuff for a Holiday Inn Express... More

Very nice overall, comfy and nice rooms, friendly staff, fast wifi. Very nice location near a McDonalds, a Dunkin Donuts, and a 3 minute walk from the "T" (public transit). Only downsides were the wifi wasn't working for one day, and that there was no pool. I would rate 4/5. Probably the best hotel in this price range.

Nice rooms, comfy beds, good variety at breakfast. There is no pool or hot tub. Hotel is very close to the end of the green line subway for a quick trip into downtown without having to move the car. Parking is free. Front desk staff is very friendly and helpful.

I stayed for five nights at this hotel while visiting Boston. Hotel was a walk from local transport but cannot say anything bad about the hotel itself. The room was huge and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was ok, this was a plus and saved me having to look for somewhere to eat in the morning.

Arrived and stayed for one night while on MLB tour of the U.S. Room was clean, beds comfortable. Hotel staff were helpful in giving directions to local attractions. Hotel in odd area- McDonalds next-door, factory, other hotels and Target nearby. Wouldn't recommend walking in the immediate area at night. VERY busy breakfast in the morning. Not much to do in...

Older well maintained property except for elevator which had expired certificate and groaned several times on the way down. Good quality mattress and shower, blackout curtain. Breakfast was usual HIX and generous; warm cookies were served at dinnertime checkin. We did not have a problem finding parking on the premises. Room was roomy and had plenty of lights and outlets...

Close to the T and the Science Museum and duck boats. Supermarket was within walking distance, great pizza and sandwich shop right around the corner. We were in Boston for a family wedding.

I stayed at the hotel for 10 days in April. The hotel is centrally located with easy access to both the MIT and Harvard campuses. There are a few big malls and shopping arcades within 500 m - 700 m of the hotel, so getting essentials is very convenient. The rooms (especially the ones with twin beds) are large, airy... More

Room was clean, microwave, refrigerator, coffee and tea service, free taxi to hospital. Free parking. Not a great location, but a nearby Star market had a nice hot/cold bar. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
