I have stayed there many times in the past when my favorite hotel was booked out, but ever since the rooms got refreshed, there is really no reason to go anywhere else. It's clean, it's safe and the breakfast is free, even though it's not the healthiest one. The beds are comfy and the staff is nice. Why paying 100USD... More

We stayed here based on the location and price. The room was spacious and well decorated. Parking was included and that's a big deal this winter (lots of snow). There were a couple of odd things about our stay that kept us from the 5*. First, we walked in and stood at the desk. The young man at the counter... More

Dear Scott_M_SubGuy - We appreciate your comments and are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. Your comment about our unattentive front desk agent did not go unnoticed and subsequently, that employee chose not to remain with the hotel.

Very surprised by the quality of the rooms and amenities here. Very large room with everything you would expect inside and a heat lamp in the bathroom! Daily breakfast that would leave anyone satisfied (dozens of options and a pancake machine too)! Just a few minutes walk from the train station which will take you anywhere in the city (not... More

This hotel gives you more than most would and for a cheap let price. Free on site parking, excellent customer service, and an included breakfast buffet that had much more than I expected. The quality of food was great. The room was large and very clean. The king bed was the tiniest but hard but I'm just comparing that to... More

Our son ( a junior in high school ) had an international competition being hosted at MIT. This hotel was near, yet reasonably priced. We were pleasantly surprised at the comfort and cleanliness of our junior suite. We were there 3 days and all personnel were courteous and helpful. Would stay there again and recommend to others. Oh, our son... More

This hotel is located in Cambridge which is just minutes away from downtown Boston. Everything was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. Some on-sight parking. If their lot is full they provide you with a parking permit and ask you to park across the street by a tropical fish store. The breakfast was okay, eggs were salty, bacon... More

HLX in Cambridge close to Boston north side. Low end cost includes parking where most don't, breakfast with bacon/sausage fruit and baked goods. Good bed and linens, well placed TV, and very good shower pressure Thin walls allow a lot of hall noise. We found our dead bolt was busted, and they moved us to the room across the hall.... More

Initially when we were told we were staying in a holiday inn, I was slightly skeptical as I'd never been to one and had my doubts on the cleanliness of an 'inn'. But what a pleasant surprise! The rooms are massive, with two double beds and a proper air conditioner (necessary in American summers). The breakfast is also great, and... More
