Since we started staying here (when we dropped off our daughter at college four years ago), we've found the accommodations comfortable and clean. On this visit (for graduation), we were surprised to find the hotel had upgraded its furnishings, bathroom fixtures, etc., to give it a modern, classy look. Wow! The folks at the front desk have always greeted us...

We stayed at this hotel while we were visiting family in Waltham. We're two adults and two dogs. They have a great hot breakfast in the morning with healthy options if you so choose, but with the sticky cinnamon buns and the one minute pancake machine, we definitely indulged! We were lucky enough to find a hotel that is dog...

I have been visiting Waltham over the past 4 years as my son has been a student at Bentley University. This hotel was recently renovated and is an excellent value for the money. It is conveniently located to Bentley University and after staying at the Hilton Garden Inn in the area, I prefer the Holiday Inn Express. Rooms are a...

Last minute tickets to a Red Sox night game and couldn't touch the prices in downtown Boston. This Holiday Inn Express is 20 minutes from Fenway and near restaurants and anything else you may need. The place is so clean and comfortable and offers a free continental breakfast & friendly staff. Would certainly stay again.

Lovely room, comfortable beds and clean hotel. Convenient to Boston and Newton. Breakfast was delicious. Upon arrival, greeting from the desk staff was less than enthusiastic but they got the check-in done.

I was impressed by interior design. Excellent furniture, bed and light fixtures. Very compact, minimal and clean. Bathroom was amazing. It has 3 different shower heads. Wall papers inside is bright blue lines. Tons of towels and amazing shower/conditioner/lotion/soap. Lobby of the building was so well designed. Everything about this place has European feel to it. I loved staying here.

We stayed here to meet up with family for a birthday dinner nearby. The hotel can be a bit challenging to get to simply because of the roads around it but once you figure it out, you should be good to go. Parking is free and plentiful. The hotel is newly remodeled so the lobby, breakfast area, and rooms are...

Booked it on Priceline, very reasonable we stayed two days. The desk clerk said the hotel had just been refurbished and we were the first to stay in our room since the redo. The room was very comfortable with two queen beds, two comfortable chairs, flat screen TV, a nice desk and well lit convenient bathroom. The breakfast was very...

We stayed here for a long weekend and had a really good experience. The hotel has recently been renovated - they were still finishing when we arrived - so everything is fresh and new. The room was spotless. They have a small but well-stocked fitness room, a guest laundry (we didn't use it but it was nice to see there)...
