Holiday Inn Express Boston - Waltham

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed at this hotel as my husband had an appointment at MA General Waltham. The bed was comfortable. He commented that since it was raining that there should be an overhang over the entrance to accommodate access to the car due to the rain. Breakfast was o.k. but the hot food was cold.

Great hotel, professional staff. Prices are great too. Highly recommend!

Front desk staff was excellent. Drive to MBTA Riverside was easy and about 15 min. to station. Room was spacious but was a handicap room and shower was hard to use because it was hand held with no way to attach it upright. Hotel was quiet. Breakfast was good with hot options.

Average hotel for exorbitant price and lack of amenities (no pool?). Housekeeping woke me up twice even though do not disturb sign was hanging. Housekeeping left old food and takeout trash sitting on my nightstand instead of discarding and left half of a mini cigarillo that had been put out earlier sitting on my bathroom sink counter. Overall way too expensive for what you get. The only great thing is that it's a 4min drive to the big IT corporate offices on Wyman st.

This hotel is one of our favorite in Waltham, MA. It's strategic location near I95 & I90 makes it very easily accessible by car. The breakfast spread in the morning is quite extensive and is an added incentive to book this hotel.

When we visit Boston we always stay at the Holiday Inn Express. The staff is always friendly. The hotel is immaculate. We always appreciate the free breakfast buffet. Even the person who is in charge of keeping the buffet full and the tables clean is very friendly. We would highly recommend this hotel!

The hotel was in the perfect location that we needed and were pet friendly. It seemed that the walls were paper thin and we heard everything too easily. Breakfast was pretty good and staff were accommodating.

Just moved here. It is located very closed to my workplace and major highway. The staff cleaned out the snow on the parking lot in no time. The room was well equipped with microwave, keurig coffee machine, and fridge. The bed and pillows were comfortable. Wi Fi was free. The breakfast was actually quite good. The little improvement would the room cleaning crews in the morning. They talked so loud on the hallway every morning. Otherwise, I was satisfied with my stay and will surely come back again.

This hotel is a very clean and friendly place to stay. I always stay here when I am in town. The front desk person is very friendly and happy to great you no matter what time of day. I can't imagine staying at any other hotel!

This was not a great hotel. I paid top dollar for the room with a king bed with no refund penalties. The room I got was at the end of the hall by stairs with an old heating system in the room. The heater and fan made a loud noise all night. There was no fan in the bathroom that had no windows. People were walking up and down the stairs late into the night and early in the morning. Obviously I was not placed in the best location. Outside of the window there was a lot of construction going on, so the entire room was rattling by 7am.

Very easy to get to and the staff was very friendly. I did have a TV that needed replacing but other than that I would have no problem staying their again on my next visit.

comfortable, staff nice food decent overall pleasantr experienc

Room was modern and functional. It was a little cramped though. Tough to find room for the ironing board and my suitcase. staff very accommodating and helpful. Must have been a busy week. All hotels had their prices $40 to $100 a night higher than normal.

When we arrived late at night there was a very friendly person to greet us. He was very helpful getting us signed in in a timely manner. He also asked if there was anything else he could do to make out stay more enjoyable. When we checked out, the person at the desk thanked us and told us to have a safe trip home. The room was very clean and suited our needs. We also enjoyed the free beakfast they offered. Thank You!

Very nice hotel. Hotel is in very good condition. Room was clean and comfortable. Staff was very courteous. Only two complaints. 1. Desk chair's maximum seat height was a little less than I desired. 2. Bathtub was much too slippery. The rough section of the floor of the tub is too hard too see, so when I stepped into the tub to take my shower I did not initially know there was a rough section. More importantly I could not see where the rough section ended and the devilishly slippery section began. The rough section runs down the center of the tub but is too narrow. When I stepped forward my right foot ended up entirely on the devilishly slipperry side section. As soon as I picked up my left foot, my right foot slid out from under me and I fell out of the tub, landing on the bathroom floor. Luckily I have no noticeable injuries.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Holiday Inn Express. Check in was easy. My room was very comfortable and clean. I had a great view of the river from the 6th floor. The complimentary breakfast was great. Lots of variety from eggs and ham to yogurt and fruit and pancakes. It is located right off the highway and was easy to get to. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I always look for a Holiday Inn Express when I travel. I also liked that the air quality in the room was great.

Staff was friendly. The room was clean. Location was great. It was 10-20 min drive from Cambridge. I would definitely visit there again.

Excellent service, clean, comfortable and upscale room. Only problem is TV cable could be better and no bar where you could get a drink Not a big deal. VERY nice hotel.

Got to be in town for a family funeral. It is a conveniently located hotel, near major shoppings such as costco and best buy. room was clean. The weather outside was below freezing but you will not notice inside. I recommend it.

Wonderful location and great staff! Easy access to interstate 95
