Element Lexington

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We only stayed one night and did not get to use most of the amenities like the pool and the weight/exercise room. Grounds and interior were quite beautiful. Very convenient to Lexington, the Battle Green, the Battle Road and other historical sites. The breakfast was excellent. The bed was very comfortable. AC vent tends to blow strongly on one side, but the comforter was nice and thick. Quite a bit of light gets through the sides of the window shades even when it is down. If you are sensitive to light when sleeping, bring a sleep mask.

We cooked meals in room a few times. Hotel is close to downtown Boston.

Very modern, clean. Breakfast included, full fridge, stove. Great value

This is my preferred hotel when working in Waltham. Staff are great! It was a little strange when I first turned on the faucet and dirt came out, but I love that this hotel doesn't smell like chemicals the way Hilton Garden does or like a nasty burger grill with old moist meat sizzling 24hrs/day like Embassy Suites on Winter street.

We stay at the Element when we visit our daughter in Lexington. It's fine for a short stay and they give you a nice breakfast. But we had some problems this time when we came over Thanksgiving. My husband is disabled and at check-in we asked for a room that wouldn't require a lot of walking to get to. The front desk guy gave us the furthest room down the hall on the first floor! That was unacceptable so I asked for a different room and he gave us a room on the 4th floor more than half way down the hall. We were resigned to accepting that room until we realized that the toilet was so low down that he couldn't possibly use it. So we called the front desk to ask if they had any handicapped rooms with high toilets and rails. They put us on hold and then forgot about us! I had to make another trip down to the front desk to resolve this problem. We finally got an acceptable room, but it was not a good start to our stay.! Then we discovered that our TV was not working properly (no volume). They sent us a handyman who had to get us a new remote. But after all that it was fine.

The place is pretty moderate. The staff are very helpful. The only problem with the hotel are the floor in my room were very dirty. There was a lot of dirt and food on the floor.

No complaints at all. Can't beat the value. We had no car, but managed to find ways into Boston via Uber/public transit. The hotel was clearly new and, once again, unbeatable for the value.

The hotel was easy to find. Right off the interstate. There was really nothing wrong with the hotel it just didn't have that super clean feeling. Nothing was really dirty it just didn't have that sparkling clean feeling you would find at a chain like Westin or at my most recent Disney hotel. My daughter enjoyed the swimming pool. And I used the exercise room in the morning. The temperature was 88° when I walked in but that was just because somebody was playing with the thermostat, I guess. No fault of the hotel staff. I have to say the free breakfast was delicious --egg white with salsa in a spinach wrap --you don't find that many places. Each staff member I spoke with at the front desk were all very kind and helpful and smiling

We and another couple stayed here for a weekend to enjoy some R&R. This hotel was very nice. We were in a studio room and it was lovely. The reason I rated 'pleasing' in cleanliness and comfort - was the room need to be vacuumed thoroughly as there were food crumbs on the stools and floor in the kitchen area and the 2nd evening (same room) the bathroom light went out and as it was later on Sunday evening we were told there was no one to fix it until @ 11am the next day. We were offered to move to a different room but declined as we were already settled into this one from the day before.

we have a baby and i wanted to cook for him while we were travelling. so we looked for a hotel around boston with a kitchenette and found this hotel. it was great! the hotel had everything we needed, it was clean, beds were comfortable, the breakfast was very nice and the staff was very helpful. if you travel by car and don't mind being 25 minutes away from downtown, this is the hotel to go for.

nice place to have a good sleep after long trip. Close to highways. Not far from Lexington downtown.

Loved it. Very comfortable beds, the hot breakfast was amazing...staff was friendly!

We had a good stay. The bed was very comfortable, the room was large and separate spaces, kitchenette was a plus.

GREAT PRICE, AMAZING BEDS, GREAT BREAKFAST, I JUST WISH THERE WAS ROOM SERVICE.

Room was clean and modern, and included an almost full-sized kitchen. Staff was courteous and attentive. Amazing breakfast (the chef even offered my kids pancakes one day when there weren't any out on the buffet--he made them and brought them out to us himself), and complimentary appetizers and drinks M-Th evenings.

I loved this hotel. The decor was very minimalist and they let you know that they are as green as possible. The free barbecue dinner and wonderful breakfast were both great. The staff was as nice and accommodating as can be. I loved the little kitchen in the room. The over-sized shower was also a nice surprise.

For the price, I think this is the perfect hotel. Great room: furniture, bathroom, kitchen, Very clean I just liked it very much.

If you're staying in Lexington, then Element is a great place to stay. It's close to everything in Lexington, very contemporary, and comfortable. The down-like comforters on the beds are excellent. Element even have a nice variation of the breakfast buffet found in most hotel chains, and a good selection of fruits and food choices. Lastly, they manage to do a number of nice touches while keeping it as 'green' as possible.

When I arrived at Element Lexington, I was really impressed. Although I spent most of my days out,my girlfriend and I enjoyed the comfort of our quiet nights in a nicely modernized suite. It really doesn't get any better with such affordability.

Very close to Boston, beautiful hygienic design - as comfortable as can be!

nice suburban hotel near the gem of lexington.

convenient location

Everyone

The hotel was easy to find. Right off the interstate. There was really nothing wrong with the hotel it just didn't have that super clean feeling. Nothing was really dirty it just didn't have that sparkling clean feeling you would find at a chain like Westin or at my most recent Disney hotel. My daughter enjoyed the swimming pool. And I used the exercise room in the morning. The temperature was 88° when I walked in but that was just because somebody was playing with the thermostat, I guess. No fault of the hotel staff. I have to say the free breakfast was delicious --egg white with salsa in a spinach wrap --you don't find that many places.
