“Take a subway ride away from the expensive city centre hotels and be surprised.”
Reviewed October 20, 2009

Just a 3 station stop from Boston city centre on the underground and a 6 mins walk (timed) and you will find this smashing hotel. From the outside it looks rather dated and the surrounding area is a mixed bag. But don't be judgemental, inside the reception area is roomy, bright and well laid out. Staff are polite and very helpful.

Reasonably priced ($5) minibus service to Airports etc.

Free parking is a bonus so near the city. Leave your car and travel by an easily understood underground system. Remember to buy a Charlie ticket ~ great value!

Breakfast is adequate with a wide variety offered ~ cheap orange juice was off putting though.

Rooms are clean with comfy beds and fairly roomy. The bathroom is poorly laid out especially around the sink area which is a nuisance.

However, it is the price and convenience and the good atmosphere which makes this hotel to seriously consider when visiting Boston.

Although a little shabby from the outside and located between a highway and a shopping mall, the hotel turned out to be a good choice to stay close to the city center (10 minute walk to the subway which takes you to the center in 5 more minutes) for a reasonable price. However, the hotel is located a few miles south of the city center so it is not near to any of the nightlife districts.

The room was clean, not too small and quiet (even though the highway was pretty close you couldn't hear it), the hotel has a huge parking lot with free parking for guests, there are two restaurants (Olive Garden and Applebees) in the mall nearby and the breakfast was OK (a typical american breakfast). The staff was always helpful.

Four of us stayed overnight. Staff efficient , courteous and friendly, particularly Gina on front desk on morning of our departure. Facilities good including 24 hr coffee, tea etc. The room was clean with coffee making facilities, fridge, TV, microwave, hairdryer, iron and ironing board. Beds comfortable! The price included breakfast - more than adequate and parking (so often extras in Boston) The hotel was within 10 minutes walk from the train station making it easy to get into the City centre. Only criticism is that hotel cannot be accessed by car from Boston street so sat nav not usable and finding access a bit tricky. Would certainly use hotel again

Staff is top notch. So easy to get to walk down to the T station and be most places quickly. Great breakfast or lunch at the restaurant right next door which is very reasonably priced. Buffet restaurant was good, a little better than average.

We were 3 couples that stayed at this Hotel on september 10, 2009. Service at the front desk was excellent. (Special thanks to Carol G.) In fact all the staff were great. As others had mentioned, the outside could use a coat of paint. But the inside was very clean, The breakfast area was very convienient. We took the train(subway) which was about a 15 minute walk. We were downtown in no time. That evening we walked down Boston street to an Italian restaurant (recommended by front desk) It was great and at no time did we feel like we were in any danger. We will stay at this hotel on our next visit to Boston.

I have stayed at this hotel twice this year; each time, the experience was great.

Sure, it's great that it is located two blocks from the T station and yes, it is rather convenient that there are stores and restaurants within walking distance.

But the biggest perk to staying at this hotel is the people who work there. They are the friendliest and the most professional. They take pride in what they do and they are there to make your vacation enjoyable.

Each morning, the Continental breakfast area was always well supplied and kept VERY clean. I am being serious when I say that the employees here take pride in what they do.

The front desk people were charming, conversational and helpful. They answered any and all questions I had and they were a joy to work with.

I will continue to book all of my stays here at the Holiday Inn Express when I travel to Boston. Mind you, I am not the type of guy who writes reviews; in this case, I feel the need to because everyone there deserves praise for a job well done.
