The Holiday Inn Express in Waltham is in need of the upcoming refurbishment.
While it's perfectly fine for a couple of nights' stay when in town for business, that's all it's good for.
location is good if you're in town for business and the office is close by, and you're not planning on doing much besides going to the office. There aren't too many restaurants around so after a couple of days you've seen everything around.
You'll also need a car to go anywhere as it's on the highway, and crossing the street to go to the restaurants on the other side isn't really an option.
The complimentary breakfast is a good option to start the day though, and the service is great. The staff is aware of the quirks the hotel has and is also looking forward to the refurbishment they're planning. [Less]
