Holiday Inn Express Braintree

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

everything was fine but hotel is not up to holiday inn express standards....refurbished and at one time another brand...did ok job except for the bathrooms...old toilet mechanisms

Great stay. The staff was really helpful and generous

We arrived late which was no problem. The hotel was old and run down. The room was clean, and the breakfast ok, but the overall state of the hotel reminded me of an older Holiday Inn, not an Express. Would not stay there again.

Great stay during a blizzard . Breakfast was excellent in the morning . Quiet as I couldn't hear people in the next room ...

Hotel was clean. Breakfast was replenished often. Man at the front desk was welcoming. . The hotel is in a great location. Right near major highways to Boston and right outside charming Quincy. Also, it is right near malls and restaurants but still sits quietly. This hotel was very affordable. Overall great experience! If we come back to this area, we will be staying here again.

Good staff, good breakfast, not a bad stay for a last min booking

Overall, the place is OK. About what you'd expect for a HIE. But it is not a non-smoking facility and that is evident when you visit the third floor (where our room was located). The smoke smell in the hallway is strong and wafted into our non-smoking room at times. We will not go back unless and until the whole place is non-smoking.

Nice enough. No pool so the kids were disappointed but the location was fabulous...right off highway to Boston and Cape Cod.

Overall, I found this to be a very nice hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the hotel itself was very clean and up to date. I was thrilled to have a microwave and a fridge! The free breakfast was very nice. They do have an exercise room with treadmill, bike and elliptical- I only wish they had some weights. Also, it would have been nice if they had a little "store" on the premises for incidentals, although they will comp any personal item, such as a toothbrush or comb, if you forgot them. I would definitely stay here again if I were in the area!

Clean room, free parking, free wifi and free breakfast. Only complaints is that it seems that there are some plumbing issues. So when next room is having a shower, it was noisy. At the first morning, i was thinking there was a fire drill.

I arrived at 11 pm and left early the next morning, so I didn't use the gym or the business center or the free wifi. Room was a little musty smelling and it and the bed felt more dated than expected (the lobby and the exterior of building seemed newer). Breakfast was a large offering. I'd stay there again only if it was a great price, because the location is close to where I was going, but there are other economy hotels in the area that I prefer.

The room was quite clean and beds and pillows were comfortable. Staff was efficient (although very unfriendly and irritated) -- delivered extra towels and toiletries very quickly. Also gave complimentary toothbrush when we forgot ours. Nice touch rather than selling overpriced ones in lobby. Value for money continental breakfast...more than just bagels! Biscuits, hot eggs and bacon, cereal, etc.

This hotel is convenient for a quick stop off. Could use some people skill at front desk. Also the hallways smelled a little but our room was very clean.

Stayed 4 nights while on college visits with the kids. Hotel was much cheaper than staying in Boston and provided free parking. Free shuttle to and from the Quincy Adams T stop. Took only 40-45 minutes into Boston via train. Nice selection at free breakfast. Will definitely stay here when visiting Boston. Hotel was very clean with comfy beds and well-kept. Staff very accommodating and helpful. Close to a large mall and restaurants like Cheesecake Factory and Legal Sea Foods. Nice, quiet location. Stay here, you won't regret it!

October 2012 - Clean room, friendly staff, complimentary buffet breakfast (nothing special but decent selection). Location is a bit out of the way for Boston (neither train station is within walkingn distance) but much cheaper than a hotel in the city. Small gym, plenty of parking, large shopping mall about a mile away.

Bed was not comfartable at all....need to find fimer matress's

Weekend in Boston - would have been too expensive to stay in the city. HI Braintree was right off I-93 with free parking, complimentary breakfast (different on my two mornings), complimentary computer/printer access, clean rooms and excellent staff.

We were very pleasantly surprised by the professionalism of the hotel staff, the convenience of the location, the cleanliness of the room, and the free breakfast offerings. Thanks very much to the staff for making this a great trip.

This is a fantastic hotel for the price. We stayed through a very busy weekend, so any hotels closer to Boston were way overpriced. The location was a bit off and there weren't a lot of places to drink/eat within walking distance but the hotel had shuttle service to and from anywhere within 3mi of the hotel, including restaurants, the  nearby mall and the closest T station (Red line-Quincy Adams) which was no more then 10 minutes away. This was also a problem though in that the shuttles stop running very early. The Friday we arrived it ended at 6p and Sunday at 4p! We took a cab in such cases and they didn't charge more than 8-10$ so no huge deal. The rooms were super well maintained, spotless, and they included mini fridges, microwaves and a good sized HD tv. Did I mention complimentary breakfast? Complimentary! From 6:30a to 9:30a. Its buffet style and we were there for 2 days so they also had different options each day. Sausage, bacon, eggs, pancakes, cereal etc. all delicious and continuously refilled. They also had a small fitness room on the first floor. The staff was super friendly and very accommodating. All in all it was a very pleasant experience, my only wish is that the shuttle ran later hours! But if you have a car, you're in the clear.

The hotel was close to Boston without the high price of the city. Bathroom could have been cleaner and the A/C leaked getting carpet wet. Other than that, is was pretty good.
