We have stayed here many times over the past seven years. Excellent value for the room rates. As for location, if you're a college parent, 10 minutes to Brandeis, 20 minutes to Tufts, and less than 30 minutes to many other colleges in Boston area. Several nice restaurants within 5 minutes and all of Waltham is within 15. And since...

Found this hotel because I was going to a football camp in Waltham. Place was full of football players and coaches, but it never ran out of anything. Breakfast was pretty good for a hotel, eggs, sausage (pork & turkey), bagels, English muffins, yogurts, muffins, fresh juice, fresh fruit, cinnamon rolls. Staff was considerate, if I needed anything from the...

It was hard to find a hotel near Boston that would not break my bank, but this one fit the bill. It has all the quality amenities one expects at a Holiday Inn Express. It was clean and the rooms comfortable. It has good access to the interstate and into Boston.

Quite impressed with the cleanliness. The halls and rooms are expected to be clean, but I was impressed at how clean even the stairways were. I saw the cleaning personnel in the stairways several times during my stay as I use the stairs instead of the elevator. Our room was always well cleaned, and the Breakfast service person (Maria) was...

Ended up staying here as a consequence of not finding a room in another near by hotel...and was pleasantly surprised. The rooms are very comfortable, particularly the pillows. Mini-refrigerators in every room. There is a fitness center: small, but basics are covered. Free wifi, free shuttle within a 3 mile radius, which worked fine for me. Free breakfast: this is...

Overall, the hotel is okay (5 night stay). The heating unit did not work our first night, but rather than deal with switching rooms or having maintenance come in the middle of the night, we just dealt with being cold. Unfortunately, even after maintenance "fixed" it the next morning, the unit failed to heat the room again our third night....

Several of us stayed here for a couple months on business. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly helping to make our home away from home more enjoyable. The only suggestion I would offer is sausage gravy for the biscuits and sugar in the raw packets for the coffee.
