Excellent and courteous staff. I appreciate that the housekeeping staff was given off for the Thanksgiving holiday. Breakfast area was kept very clean and there was a constant re-supply of food and a good variety to choose from. Room was very clean and nicely made up every day. Very quiet. Great value for the cost. It also has the added...

We grew up in Waltham, & still, have family/friends there. The Best Western has been our place since teen hood! The price is great, beautiful pool, convenient restaurant/bar, & the breakfast is wonderful. All the staff are friendly, & helpful. This visit was for our 35th High School Reunion. We had a blast.

About a year ago my wife and I stayed here and we had totally rude neighbors. I believe this is rare and can happen in any hotel. The management was very helpful to us in subduing our loud neighborhoods and promised us a discount if we ever came back (great management!). Last night we stayed again in the hotel and...

My stay here was memorable. I stay in this area quite often and this is my first visit here and I think my last. Check in was quite easy and my room was OK. The bed was not very comfortable but the bathroom was a nightmare. I have attached photos to back up my claims. I sat on the toilet...

Margot, GM and team did an outstanding job during our stay at the Best Western TLC. Whether it was accommodating our luggage, late checkout, suggestions for dinner, opening breakfast early as we were there for the Head of the Charles, Margot and her team made sure we were completely satisfied, everything was OK and that we could concentrate on racing....

Another wonderful night at this Best Western! Last week I needed to stay overnight close to where I work (I have a 70 mile daily commute). This hotel has become my home away from home for several reasons. Manager Margot Fenton personally gets to know her regular guests and she passes that customer service standard along to her staff who...

We recently stayed at the Best Western Hotel in Waltham, MA and were very pleased with the staff and the service. Our only choice when we are in the Waltham area will be the Best Western. The room was very clean and the breakfast was . great as there was many choices.
