Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Travel Review Average Stay
Decent place to stay if you want to avoid the overpriced hotels in the city area. It's right outside of Boston and located near the Quincy Adams station. You can take a hotel shuttle to the station (although hours are limited if you stay out late) or you can make a short drive to the subway station yourself.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Danamals Excellent Hotel for Short and Long Term Stay
I stayed at the Holiday Inn Braintree several times on business. Overall, I had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend this hotel! The rooms are extremely clean. The staff is very accommodating. It is like a home away from home!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by broo3 Location Location be aware
Great staff and clean accommodations. The staff was very helpful and courteous.
Their website indicates that a complimentary shuttle is available, but they do not tell you the very limited time (9 a.m- 4 p.m.)
If you do not have your own transportation to/from the train station outside of the shuttle hours, you will have to get a cab (which they will call for you) at a cost of $12- $15 per trip.
Great accommodations outside of Boston for those who drive there.
It would be helpful if they added the shuttle hours to their website, thus you can be aware and plan accordingly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eclectictraveler47 Home Away From Home
I have traveled a lot in the last ten years and the Holiday Inn Express Braintree, MA has become my home away from home. The room furnishings are very serviceable and pleasant - no gold-plated ostentation here, just a fine place to relax after a long day's work. The staff is very considerate and accommodating. The warm, friendly check-in is also there at check-out time. Although located on a side road, the hotel is near Highway 93 with easy access to Boston (going north# and Providence #going south). It is also near the South Shore Mall, where you can shop and eat to your heart's content. The rooms are not very big and sometimes the heat or A/C makes too much noise, but that inconvenience is more than offset by the micro-fridge in every room and the excellent TV reception for lots of channels. An overall exceptionally well run hotel that you will find pleasant and comfortable.

Sorry in the brand of Holiday Inns they don't measure up for a Boston Area Hotel.

This hotel is located about 12 miles south of Boston. There is an MTA station within walking distance from the hotel along with a mall and plenty of options for dinning.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kat82 Best Sleep and overall wonderful experience
The Holiday Inn Express in Braintree is a must for anyone looking for a convient location, and overall comfortable stay. This hotel is located within minutes of the major highway, South Shore Plaza Mall, and the city of Boston. The staff is friendly, accommodating, and most certainly hospitable.
The rooms are spotless! I have never stayed anywhere with rooms this clean. The beds are are super comfortable, like sleeping on a cloud. Also of note, the hotel is quiet. A fresh breakfast (very yummy) is offered every morning. I highly recommend a stay here.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joe Bobbi Sue I like the Braintree Holiday Inn Express
People are always polite, courteous, and respectful. Everything is easy here. The breakfast is great! Food is always there and available. When something runs out they are quick to replace it. And while it is your basic breakfast it is pretty darn good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Biscuit22 Perfect long weekend!
Perfect for a long weekend. One thing, the shuttle should end later than 3:30 pm. We choose to take our car to the subway station. For $7, it's worth it because a taxi cost around $15! The breakfast was perfect. It had something for everybody. Good variety!
One thing you could had eventually would be an indoor pool.

I was a guess at Holiday Inn Express in the Braintree area. Ok when I made reservations on line with "Government Employee" discount, upon arrival found out they only accept "Military Id" oppose to the Government Employee" so my thing is Holiday Inn need to be more specfic with what types of ID they will accept. Online it states one thing then when you arrive at the hotel they telling you another.

Can't say enough about hotel...Tops in our book..Trolley for Boston picked up and deliveried us back to our door..Staff was extremely helpful...They had a laundry with I used on the very first day..Only downside of this it was a little expense to wash clothes $3.00 and $2.00 to dry A LOAD..I had 4 load so you can see where I am coming from..
Breakfast was good...healthy and then even PANCAKES for me..
Would recommend and stay here again
We even took a mini tour of New Hampshire and Vermont from this location.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sojourner13 Gracious Host/Breakfast Limited
Jennifer, the host at this Holiday Inn Express was invaluable in helping us find our way from downtown Quincy to the hotel location. She was gracious and concerned for our well being.
Jennifer shared hospitality with authenticity.
The breakfast offering was less than usual at Holiday Inn Express facilities.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by dwestcoast Decent for Bad Internet and Location
Hotel staff was nice and the room was comfortable, but there is literally nothing in the neighborhood except industrial buildings. The wifi was awful (I had to go over my network allowance because the signal was so bad that it was unusable most of the time), and the breakfast seating area was small. If you are staying one night and are just sleeping, it's a fine place. For several days, stay elsewhere.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Baha Less than expected
The room was very clean and comfortable. Unfortunately the breakfast service was not up to par. Most of the selections were not restocked and those that were there were sparce. Very disapointing; the cinnamon buns were just above frozen.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TonyLK A very Nice Experience
We stayed July 2013, Room was next to housekeepping and we never heard a sound. Staff members were well groomed, respectful and helpful. The motel is very clean and presentable. food was well prepared and presentable. Renovations were under way by a wonderful couple from Arizona. Both greeted guests politely, with hospitality and respect. The location of the HIEx is great with immediate access to Rt 3 and I 93 and is in almost walking distance to a very large indoor shopping mall surrounded by nice middle and upper cost menus. Stayed 5 days.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steve85 Comfortable room and nice staff
We stayed here for a personal trip to Boston from 7/31-8/5. The staff was great. Very friendly! Rooms where big enough and comfortable. Very quiet area around the hotel. The only small issue i had was with the free shuttle. Its a nice service thats provided, however, they do not have the times of the shuttle posted at the hotel. Didnt know that the shuttle stops running at 4PM on weekends..so had to take a cab almost the whole time to get back to the hotel from going into the city. Other than that, the stay was very nice.Breakfast was basic but good. very clean hotel! Would stay here again, however i would rent a car in order to not have to depend on the shuttle.

I was put into a handicapped room. This room is all bathroom and there is virtually no room to even walk around. The room is horibly arranged. The work table was full of advertising garbage. I had a hard time relaxin in this room becuase it was so cramped.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JP2000 Close to Boston & great breakfast variety
We needed something close to Boston and affordable, this hotel was able to provide both. Less than 10 min and we were at the subway (parking $7/day) and the ride Into town was short. We did that ride three days in a row. Close to many restaurants, grocery store, gas and even an urgent care facility (unfortunately had to visit in our stay). Staff was helpful and polite.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bob6907 OK stay
I requested a suite as my stay was for 2weeks . I was given a standard size room compared to other properties.
The bathroom was small and in order to close the door you had to stand between the toilet and the counter. The door should've opened out and if someone were to pass out you will not be able to gain access to the person.
The breakfast was normal except the pancake machine was broke for 4 days and they ran out of Orange Juice for 2 days???
The overall stay was OK but next time I will look at the room sizes first.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sugarcane1962 Great Choice for Visiting Boston
This hotel is a great choice for those who want to visit Boston. We were a party of 4 visiting Boston- area universities. Location was perfect. Hotel was very quiet and very clean. Easy to find and near South Shore Mall with plenty of shopping and dining options including Legal Sea Foods and Cheesecake Factory. Hotel has FREE shuttle service to and from Quincy Adams T station which can take you into Boston in only 40-45 minutes. Leave the car at the hotel and take the train. It's easy and quick and you avoid all the traffic. Breakfast is somewhat limited but it did include cheese omelets, cinnamon rolls, biscuits, sausage, bacon, oatmeal, pancakes, oatmeal, yogurt, toast, etc. Sure filled us up. Staff was very accommodating and we had no complaints whatsoever. Highly recommend Holiday Inn Express Braintree and will definitely stay again!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by YU72 Won't visit there anymore.
I will start with good things because it is short.
- Its surroundings are quite silent.
- The room was clean.
- They didn't recognize me as a Platinum member, and the front desk staff even humiliated us: I booked this hotel by using Citi Thankyou points. I wasn't sure if they could recognize my membership status because there were no quarries to put my membership number when booked. So I sent them an email that asks to recognize me as a Platinum member. They didn't reply it, so I called them and sent another email. They replied that the complimentary room upgrade is unavailable, which was totally fine. But at least they could have ample chance to recognize my membership status. When checking in, I asked to check my membership status and they eventually told us that they didn't know that we are Platinum members. One of staffs even said like "you have just xxxx points in your account!" Her attitude was so uncomfortable that I didn't know what to say at that time. Do you always recognize members with current points? The main reason why we chose this hotel is that we had been very satisfied with subtle but nice services as a Platinum member when staying other IHG hotels. Maybe other IHG hotels recognition for Platinum members is peculiarly nice.
- Internet access was horrible. I should have been more attentive to read previous visitors' reviews. When I talked to the desk, his response was like he never experienced or got reported any problems with wifi. In short, they didn't recognize the wireless internet access is one of their problems even though many have reported in their reviews.
- I woke up with a drilling sound every morning. I happened to meet guests right next to my room who claimed a complaint to the front office about the loud drilling sounds. It seems they were told that WE made the noise. How could it be possible that we woke up with the drilling sounds by making the drilling sounds?
