This is a nice 3 star hotel in a good location near Boston, about 0.4 miles (10 min walk) from Lechmere T-station, 0.8 miles from Museum of Science. The room is of decent size, we got a king size bed with full size sofa bed, ideal for one to two kids. There is refrigerator and microwave in the room along...

Thank you for your review! Our location provides very easy access to the Boston MBTA. Additionally, We have an overflow parking lot available across the street for our guests when our main lot is full. We do understand that this is a bit of an inconvenience for some guests, and offer our parking as complimentary to compensate. Thank you for...

I recently stayed at this property while attending a family gathering in the Boston area. I am a regular user of HIE and was not disappointed. The staff was most accommodating and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was nice and the rooms were comfortable and clean. Thank you HIE Cambridge.

Dana at the front desk was so nice and helpful. Everything from directions to dinner to help on getting around Boston on the subway. Hotel was clean as well. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

Standard Holiday Inn Express experience. Clean, pleasant. Unfortunately, someone is excavating for a building next door. Not a bad walk to restaurants during daylight hours, but wouldn't want to go outside at night.

Checked into this hotel for one night at the end of our vacation as a stopover. Front desk staff was excellent! Quick check in, they upgraded our room at same rate.

Our family stayed here for a 2 night stay and thought the hotel was very nice. The rooms are small, but not the largest either. We were in a room with 2 beds. As I usually get hot at night, I got the honor of sleeping closest to the AC unit. During our summer trip this was the case at...

This is just an average hotel. I didn't realize there was no bar here, every other hotel I've stayed at for the last 33 years has had a bar, this was not something I thought to inquire about. The only available food is the complimentary daily breakfast. The hotel is situated next to a shopping center that has a McDonalds....

Updated rooms. King suite was great. Open and modern living area. Thank you for giving more living/working space and smaller bathroom. Staff here was terrific.
