We picked this hotel because it was close to Harvard Law School where we were visiting our son. The hotel was built on a very small commercial lot so there is nothing but the hotel and its parking lot. The car spaces were tight, which is a reflection of the small building lot. If you are driving a rental car...

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Cambridge when visiting Microsoft on business. The price for a nights stay is far cheaper than most nice places in Cambridge. The location is easy to find, and parking was ample. Checking was friendly and fast. I was given a floor on the 8th floor, next to the elevator (I bid on...

Once inside the doors this hotel was great. Staff was friendly and helpful. Decor is modern and clean. Our room was clean and the spacious. Just a few blocks to the train and then a few minutes to downtown. Highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed at this hotel for a second time while traveling for business. This hotel has the best value in the area because of their free breakfast, internet and parking. Rooms are really modern and clean. The location is so close to the T, which brought me right into downtown Boston, that I didn't need to use my car once. There...

Holiday Inn Express Boston/Cambridge is just what you'd expect: A nice big room, with a work desk, at a much lower rate than you'd pay for similar accommodations downtown. "Free" WiFi was adequate, although I've seen faster.The "free" buffet breakfast was a bit better than par, with hot eggs and bacon along with the ubiquitous breads, cereals, and such. When...

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for one night in November 2013. Check-in was very easy & the woman working at the front desk was extremely friendly.

Great time, easy access, nice area, public transport close by. Boston & area is on my list of things to see again. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, made us feel right at home. Rooms were spacious, street side is noisier but not unbearable.

Pros: good value, good rooms, good breakfast, decent location, parking available Cons: horrible housekeeping, poor Internet access, weird HVAC control, unsafe-looking overflow parking lot Details: On the pros first, the hotel offers good value but the price to be paid is the somehow awkward location (on the outskirts of an industrial area in a neighborhood that looks somehow seedy).

Stayed here overnight meeting friends. Hotel had easy parking, very clean rooms, and helpful front desk. Snowed while we were there which limited walking to restaurants a few blocks by. Neighbors late night a bit loud but hotel staff monitored the situation without us having to complain. Would definitely stay again. Great rates.
