Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bandjo Definitely not an aiport hotel
The hotel itself is fine - Might need a few updates, but otherwise it's comfortable and clean. That's all I really expect from a Holiday Inn Express.
The idea of calling this an airport hotel is laughable though - It took 25 minutes to get to the hotel at midnight after the shuttle picked us up. There was no traffic or construction, it's just that the hotel is FAR.
I would stay here again if I was actually going to be in the area, but there is no way that I would stay here again or recommmend it to others if looking for an actual aiport hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DVR27 Could be better
We picked the hotel due to the lower cost of of the room as opposed to staying closer to the airport, and we needed the shuttle to the airport.
Most of the stay was okay with the exception of the morning of checkout. Normally, when I stay at a HI Express, the bill is paid and slid under my door and away I go. Not this EXPRESS. Had to go to the front desk, the guy on the reception desk hadly looked at me, no good morning or anything. Processed my credit card, put the receipt on the counter without a word and I had to ask if I was done. Could hardly bother to respond to me, again no 'Thanks for staying with us; have a great day'... nothing - RUDE!
Breakfast was under average, things were not filled, trash bin drawers were open and we could here the gal on the phone talking the whole time we were having breakfast. Never came in to finish what she was in the middle of taking care of. Good old conversation going on.
Then the shuttle ride, thrill ride. We took the 7am shuttle which did get us to the airport in plenty of time for our flight considering that it was bumper to bumper rush our traffic - took 35 minutes. That wasn't the problem - considering the slow moving traffic, we were constantly thrown around in the van due to the van driver's very heavy acceleration and braking. My mother is in her 70s and didn't need this jostling around.
Couldn't decide on whether I would recommend the hotel or not, left it blank.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ahknaten Hotel in Boston, doesn't have TV to view Boston NHL Playoff Game
We stayed at this Holiday Inn on the night of a Boston / Montreal NHL playoff game. As we were there resting, we figured that we'd watch the playoff game. Unfortunately, the hotel didn't carry the channel of the playoff game. We found this to be rather odd -- that a hotel in Boston can't view a Boston game. My wife, who is pregnant, went to the front desk to inquire about the TV channels. The staff informed us that we could go to a nearby H**ters to watch the game. My wife, being pregnant, wasn't too thrilled with that idea. Seems to us, that the Holiday Inn in Boston isn't exactly a fan of the Boston hockey team.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Morris13069 Very good experience for sure.
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for a post-cruise overnight stay. We booked this hotel for the complimentary shuttle & breakfast and for the chance to meet up with a relative from Boston. We were able to check in shortly after noon which made it REALLY convenient for us considering we had been up early in order to debark the cruise ship. The room was spacious, the beds comfy, the breakfast very good plus there are a slew of eateries and stores nearby. The staff was professional and helpful and we would probably stay here again.

We were very pleased with the customer service we received. The room was very clean and comfortable. The shuttle takes 20-30 minutes, depending on traffic, to take you to the airport train station.
Our only issue was unless you have a car the only two restaurants in walking distance are Hooter's and Friendly's. We would stay here again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lars12345678 Being advertised as a Logan hotel is joke.
Waited 30 minutes for the van to pick us up, then took forever to get to the hotel. The driver had the radio tuned loudly to a sick religious station. It was a long miserable ride. We had just stayed at a Holiday Inn Express in Salt Lake City for 4 nights. We felt it was good value for the money which was much less expensive than this hotel. The night check-in guy was kind and professional and very helpful. The van to take us back to Logan was late which made us almost miss our connection. Much unnecessary stress. The breakfast choices were limited compared to SLC and the rubber eggs were inedible. The breakfast lady however was very friendly and attentive.

I stay at a lot of the IHG properties and this one has been the worst to date. I tried calling several times for the shuttle from the airport and got no answer. When I drove there with a rental car I was told that there was parking designated for platinum members. There were nine platinum members on the list and all of about a dozen spots were filled when I got there so I parked in the back. The breakfast area was very hectic in the morning and the customer computers were in the same room. Not a pleasant experience overall.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tosuperstar Staff was awesome!
I was in town for the Boston Marathon and this hotel was reasonably priced. Breakfast is included in the price and there are a couple restaurants within walking distance. Hooter's is about 3 to 5 minute walk and Five Guys about 10 to 15. The rooms were clean and the nice. The staff was extremely pleasant and I really enjoyed them! The only problem I encountered was long waits at the train station waiting tor the shuttle. Getting to the train was not a problem, but getting back to the hotel was on two separate occasions. On the first night I brought it to the attention of the front desk and the Sales Manager followed up personally, which was greatly appreciated! They did get us to the train in plenty of time to make our buses to Hopkinton, but on the return to the hotel after the Marathon there again was a delay. Even with that, it is a great place to stay!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pat4 Good location, easy to get around
Great location; staff very helpful and nice. Only recommendation is improved frequency of airport/T transport. I called at 9 pm when I got to the T station and they said 20 minutes. For awhile I was there by myself - a little scary. The. It was another thirty minutes to pick up everyone else and get back to the hotel - and no bathrooms!!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by bmacnbh20 would have been excellent
very nice room...great value; the staff @ check in was terrific, very helpful. There was some confusion regarding the rate. I had reserved the room online for the stay, park and fly package and they said I didn't reserve the room with the "park" feature, I guess there is an additional charge for this (a higher room rate) but they agreed to honor the reservation I had. I was under the impression that the park feature was a no charge benefit, but I guess they charge more for it! Upon our return we had to wait 1 hour for the shuttle. It took me 3 calls to finally reach the hotel; when I finally spoke with them, I was told the driver had just left the hotel, but he should be @ the airport in 15-20 minutes and we were told where to wait for the van. 40 minutes later I called the desk again and they were surprised that I hadn't been picked up, but said they would call the driver and make sure he got there in 10-15 minutes. 20 minutes later, the shuttle arrived. While in the shuttle we heard the desk talking to the driver saying an additional person was waiting...after 5-6 minutes the additional person did not show, so the driver called the desk to tell them he was leaving without the additional person and their response was "we will send the other van." When we arrived @ the hotel, the other van had still not left for the airport! I am sure that "additional person" had a wait like ours. The poor communication between the desk and the driver is awful...in the age of the cell phone how does this happen? It is a 20 minute ride from the hotel to the airport...an hour wait is not acceptable. The driver was excellent. I am sure the driver relies on tips for the majority of his income; the front desk is ruining his opportunities. If the hotel does not want the stay, park and fly business they should not promote it. The poor service of the night desk person on 4/15/14 negated any positive experience created by the excellent check in service of the night team on 4/7/14.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy Travelers - two Overall Great Experience
Used the Park and Go package and highly recommend this option
particularly if you have an early morning flight.
The front desk folks were friendly and answered all our questions
(thanks Sergio) and the van driver helped load bags and got us
to the airport on time.
Wish the full breakfast was available before 6:30 am but other than
this little inconvenience .... Everything went off without a hitch. We would highly recommend the Holiday Inn Express in Saugus.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sophia,yz Good service and good break fast
After 2 nights staying, we decide to stay there again when we back to boston from New York City.
They offer me a good discount rate because they have a guest history record and service is very friendly. Their drivers are nice and we will choose this hotel for future visit to boston for sure.
Their breakfast is very good with fresh apple and pan cake.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by tandana airport hotel
as a platinum member i have stayed at many airport hotels owned by the IHG group, and would not recommend or ever stay at this Holiday Inn Express again. The last airport pick up is 1230 am, which is not specified when booking. our plane landed at 1203 am and i called immediately for a pickup, as i knew they stopped at 1230 am, and was told to call back after i received my baggage and was on the curb. i told them i will be there by 1230. when i got to the curb, at 1225 am, i called and was told by the time we get there it will be after 1230 am. they called a cab for me, which arrived at 130 am. the hotel did pay for cab, not the tip, however it was obvious that they were not going to come pick my wife and i up from the first call. very unprofessional, and i will not recommend this airport hotel to any of my clients, nor will i ever stay there in the future. in all the years i have been a member of the IHG group this is the only hotel that does and did the bare minimum for their guests, never mind a platinum member.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by maryann57 Great service
Stayed at the hotel for one night and used the airport shuttle service early the next morning. Room was very comfortable. Wasn't able to use breakfast service. Left too early. Real test of their service was the shuttle home. Plane was delayed and we did not land until well after the last run. Called the desk and they sent the shuttle for us anyway. What a blessing as we had our 4year old granddaughter with us. Cannot thank the staff enough - especially the shuttle driver for coming to get us and to help start our car as the battery died. You all went way beyond what you had to do. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

The rooms are big, clean and the beds were very comfortable.
Good selection of ( free) breakfast choices. The parking is free as well.
Excellent customer service.
My only small complaint is that bathrooms are tiny and the sink for the bathroom is not actually in the bathroom But it certainly won't stop me from staying here again.

When I travel out of town from Logan I use The HIE Saugus as my Park Sleep and Fly. The price is about the same as parking off-site nearer to the airport but I get a good night sleep the night before and take the 13 minute shuttle to my terminal where, because I have my tickets printed ahead, I go straight to security and fly away.
though this time I did not have breakfast because we left so early, the breakfast there is a decent hotel Continental fare.
Parking is covered and the staff is quite accommodating.
My wife enjoys the HOT chocolate in the lobby.
It is comfortable and pleasant.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Shower01 Poor Wireless Service
Typical of Holiday Inn the Internet service was so slow I couldn't download my email. In the morning I pointed this out during check out and was advised that it has been that way for months.
If you like a nice brish shower this is not the place for you. Could hardly get the soap off the water pressure is so low.
The shuttle from the hotel to the airport is about the same distance as a shuttle from Boston, so this is hardly the airport Holiday Inn.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MJM77 Above and beyond!
Amazing!!! My son and I went down as a trip for his birthday. This place had great reviews, but it was so much more. The room was so clean and fresh smelling. I asked for places that delivered and they recommended Donimo's. (not domino's). Great food and alot of it for a great price. We booked the shuttle for 9 am the next day so we could go into the city to visit a few museums and sight see. While at breakfast the wonderful housekeepers remembered my child had mentioned it was birthday and wished him a happy birthday. After a wonderful day in the city we took the shuttle back to the hotel. The staff then greeted us with a birthday card and cake!!! (We had already checked out and were just going to our car.) This is an amazing place and I will NEVER stay anywhere else when we come to Boston. The owners and managers should be very proud of their staff for going so above and beyond what we expected! Thank you for a great trip I nor my child will ever forget.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarkP56 Great customer service
I was very pleased with my stay over the Christmas holiday. So much so I chose to stay again when I returned to Saugus the following week. I know I am in the very unpopular minority who smoke and I initially made my decision to stay at HIE because I was able to stay in a room where smoking was permitted. For many years I would stay ay the Inn across the street until they changed their smoking policy. I no longer felt welcome and felt they no longer wanted my business. I had a very different experience at the Holiday Inn.
The biggest asset in my opinion is the great customer service, specifically Dominic at the front desk . He is an outstanding example of what customer service should be. I hope Holiday Inn appreciates Dominic.
I will stay at this Inn on my future trips to visit family in the Boston area. Thank you for providing such a welcoming atmosphere!

Really appreciated the opportunity to return the rental car to Logan airport and catch the hotel shuttle back to the hotel. Took a load off my mind rather than rushing to return in the morning before catching a flight. Great customer service, quick check in, and very comfortable bed. It was the right hotel choice.

While on our way to New York for New Year's Eve we decided to stop in Boston for a hockey game. The Ottawa Senators were in the city for the night. On previous stays we had always chosen another location. Never again!! From the moment we entered your lobby we were pleased. The clerk had a smile on his face and was very pleasant. My name was displayed on a card in the lobby as a top rewards member. We were given a bag of goodies. You supplied us with a cot instead of an air mattress which is given in many other hotels in the chain. The clerk was very prompt in bringing it up with another smiling employee. The room had a fridge which is always an added bonus. The TD place was close by. A pharmacy was next door and the shopping mall was down the road. The breakfast buffet was great and the English muffins were plentiful. Our only disappointment was in not getting tickets to the game because the last minute ticket place closed at exactly seven pm. I should have sent my son the runner to get them. In the end, we were pleased that we did not get the tickets because they lost to the Bruins and we saved a lot of cash! However, they won the next evening in Ottawa against the Bruins!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ARMIN69 Don't be fooled by the Complimentary Shuttle Available for the Train
We picked this hotel because of the Train stop Oak Grove Station which listed Complimentary Shuttle Available. That's not true. We ended up taking a taxi which cost $30 with tip. Our stay was in October 2013 and I pointed this out to the front desk staff and I still see it's listed that way. Please remove that line from under the Train listing on the Directions tab.
