Our daughter was expecting her first child. When we researched all the possible hotels --they were all through the roof expensive in Boston!! I looked up MGH and they had several hotels that would give you a special medical rate. This Holiday Inn Express had the best price-so much less than Boston hotels. They even paid for 1 round trip...

This was my first visit to Cambridge and I knew this HIX was on the opposite end of the area I'd be hanging out. Front desk staff was fine, room was big and clean, but the area was sketchy as funk. There is little on-site parking, so you park across the street in a lot next to an abandoned building.... More

It was a great time with my family when we visited Boston and decided to stay at the holiday inn express in Cambridge. The staff were great and so was the rooms and also the food. We had great choices of breakfast food and the hotel in general was very clean. We enjoyed every moment there and would recommend this... More

This hotel is in an excellent location for exploring Boston if you are looking for a slightly cheaper hotel. Half an hour walk or $20 cab fare to downtown. The rooms are clean, spacious and well maintained. Breakfast is the usual fare, cereal, toast, bagels and some hot items left under a warming light. As usual, there is never quite... More

My wife and I are from Ontario Canada and stayed at this HI for 3 days in August. The main positive feature of this hotel is the breakfast and the proximity to the Lechmere subway station which will take you to downtown in a few minutes. The hotel itself is showing its age, I hesitate to give a poor review... More

Decent stay, but tradeoffs to consider if this hotel is right for you: Parking: Free parking/small lot, overflow lot is across a busy road next to a DIY car wash. Location: Outside of downtown Boston/subway (T-green line) is 6-7 minute walk nearby. Location 2: Fairfield Inn is also nearby/Transient neighborhood, but felt safe Commute cost: Parking in Boston is expensive/subway... More

Service is good. Room is clean, pretty good size but a little old. Feels a little creepy at night as the drawer next to the beds cannot close tightly and keeps slide open and when people try to get in their rooms, it sounds like they are trying to open our door with the key. Limited parking space, it will... More

Not a good experience at this HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS. Upon my 5pm check-in, I was provided keys to a two double bed room when I had a reservation for a KING room. When I returned to the front desk I was informed there wasn't any KING rooms available, except for handicap KING room. I informed Melvin that I didn't require... More
