We went to this hotel as a semi-affordable room close to downtown. It's very odd getting in to the hotel parking lot. You have to actually go past the hotel then do a u-turn at the lights. We parked and went to look for a place to eat. There are a few sketchy places a few blocks away but otherwise... More

I am so sorry to hear about your issues with our parking lots. This is something we are looking to find a good solution to in the future. It isn't often that both of our lots full, but when it does we understand the inconvenience this can cause for our guests. Please consider us again in the future. More

After over a 3hr drive, the GPS says: "you are approaching your destination" once there we are planning what to do, where to go, Surprise!

Arrived after 11 pm from a 9300 miles flight, the reception was mixed. One front counter staff was smiling and friendly, whilst the other was unhappy-looking and grouchy. We guessed it is sleeping time and no one like the graveyard shift. 4 hours later, the emergency alarm rang. Fire services responded with 3 tenders. The whole building evaucated. Hotel staff...

We stayed 2 nights here while in Boston. The hotel is nice and convenient to the subway and bus station which is good for 2 reasons driving in this town is difficult at best and parking is worse. The hotel itself offers limited parking spaces. We decided to return the rental early and just use the transit systems or walk,... More

Thank you for your review! I am very sorry about our shortcomings with the breakfast. This is something we are continuing to work on improving, including both our efficiency and quality for our guests. We do suggest our guests utilize the MBTA system. Driving downtown can be stressful and also expensive to find parking. Please come and join us again... More

I recently stayed at this property while attending a family gathering in the Boston area. I am a regular user of HIE and was not disappointed. The staff was most accommodating and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was nice and the rooms were comfortable and clean. Thank you HIE Cambridge.

Standard Holiday Inn Express experience. Clean, pleasant. Unfortunately, someone is excavating for a building next door. Not a bad walk to restaurants during daylight hours, but wouldn't want to go outside at night.
