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

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Cambridge for 18 days when my brother was in Mass General Hospital. We were very pleased with everything. The staff was very pleasant, the room was well laid out and clean and the location was perfect for our needs. Average breakfast. It is a 5-8 minute drive to downtown Boston. You can... More

we had a 5am flight out of Logan airport, so we were looking for a hotel closed to the airport, with free parking. This hotel serves the purpose. Very friendly staff and check-in was quick. The room was a decent size and clean. They had a cookie jar at the lobby and 24 hour-coffee/hotwater service as well. Overall, great stay,... More

We only stayed here for one night when we went to a concert in Boston. After an initial mix-up at the front desk about our reservations (no fault of the hotel staff...it was a problem with the name on the credit card as the room was booked by someone else for us), we got into our room.

The rooms were very clean, large and well appointed. We were very pleased with our visit. The staff was friendly and helpful. They always had snacks available in the lobby eg, apples and flavoured water on tap. Very nice touch. The location was perfect. Close to everything that we were interested in. Would stay here again in a heart beat.

We used this hotel to utilize HI express suites extra area. There was a pull out bed but both rooms were tight. I guess this is true of all the Boston area hotels. Parking was free and the staff was nice but the cramped quarters were a surprise. They did have free wifi and an ok buffet breakfast.
