Upon arrival to the hotel on September 21st evening we realized that we made by mistake in reservation for 3 nights in October 2016 rather than for September 2016. Fortunately, we met Mr. Brad Campbell, Guest Services Manager, who was very kind and show sympathy by finding us an hospitality solution.

Was here for one night on business. Front desk staff was pleasant and helpful upon our arrival. We were able to check in quickly. The hotel is very convenient to major highways and there are a couple of restaurants in the immediate area, one in particular within walking distance. Although we were leaving very early the next day, before breakfast... More

We had a very comfortable stay at Holiday Inn Express Waltham. The room was spacious and very clean, as was the bathroom. The bed was extremely comfortable. We found the staff very courteous and helpful. They brought up extra sheets/towels for the pull-out couch. We also forgot our charger in the room, and when I called, they offered to send... More

The room was nice, but small, fairly certain not handicap friendly for most rooms in tower. Staff was nice, breakfast was typical boxed up stuff and at that not well done so we skipped it. Coffee always on and decent. Quiet location and recently remodeled so decent work out room. Good for business travel not so much for relaxing or... More

We stayed here for a late August wedding as part of a room block. The wedding/reception was not at the hotel. Pros were that it was clean and proximate to the venue. Cons were cost ($144/night, even in the block), the bathroom that lacked shampoo and had a tankless toilet that sounded like a jet engine and had no fan,... More

We stayed at the Waltham Holiday Inn Express in Waltham for a night prior to a day in Boston. We picked this hotel because the price was very reasonable comparable to other hotels we looked at, and because this hotel was only about 10 minutes away from the Riverside T station in Newton, allowing easy access to Boston. The hotel... More

Plenty of parking here. And in need of a little updating.. Elevator is slow and rickety. Breakfast is typical pickings of eggs meats and cereals to fruits. At least they have something.. Overall the rooms are ok in size but bathrooms are tight!! Mattress is super comfy as are the pillows.. So for the most part you'll get a great... More
