Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by acpcrl Great Location
The location is perfect for getting on and off the T and getting around the area. The front desk staff are awesome, knowledgeable about the area and very helpful. Breakfast was very good and the variety was nice over a long stay. Cinnamon rolls were my favorite treat along with the nightly cookies. The beds are horribly uncomfortable and caused me pain. The housekeeping staff were friendly but the ones on my floor did not speak English at all which made it difficult to communicate our needs. The room was clean upon check-in but not up to par during our stay. We would definitely consider staying here on our next trip.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by zach118 Decent Hotel
Stayed with my family for two nights.
It is conveniently located and getting into Boston was easy on the T.
We had a spacious room with 2 queen beds, comfortable for our family of four.
The breakfast choices are limited though

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Boston stay
We had a very difficult time finding the hotel. It was dark and we were tired so that might have had something to do with it. We were a little surprised at the neighborhood but it was fine, since we were not planning to walk around it the next morning. If so, I would have preferred a Boston location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TNTnMN Close to couple T-Stops and Mall
We stayed here to avoid the high prices of being Downtown, Back Bay, or in Harvard Square. We spent 4 days as tourists in Boston covering the usual sites -- Freedom Trail, Duck Rides, Harvard, Fenway, Trinity Church, Prudential Bldg, Blue Man Group, and 4th of July fireworks w/Boston Pops. The site proved a good place to based as we used it to get to Green and Red "T"-line easily. For some context, I am a platinum IHG member and stay at a lot of HI properties. This one is meets their standards.
This location is about $30 cab ride from Logan Airport, little less than 10 minute walk from Lechmere #Green Line#, 15 minutes to Science Museum, and a good 15+ minute walk from Kenmore Square #Red Line#. It has a McDonald's next to it; and is about a 10 minute walk to a full-fledged mall. The neighborhoods around it are nice; and there are alot of condos being built on the otherside of the road from it.
Our dbl queen room had a fridge and microwave and was pretty standard HI Express fare. Same for breakfast #cinnamon rolls, toast/bagels, eggs, saugage/bacon, cereal, pancakes, COFFEE!#. . The breakfast room is a little cramped, but is well-served by the staff who try very hard. the business center is right by elevator and abilty to print show/game tickets worked quite nicely.
Only knock was the elevator can be a little slow during peak times #9-10am#. I understand parking is free #we didn't use it# -- looked very crowded given such a good deal.
All and all - glad to have been here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ilovenickolas You would be a fool to stay in downtown Boston - Stay here!
Amazing hotel. Amazing breakfast and free parking is pretty much non-existant at any other hotels in Boston. Really close to a bus station (but I had my own car, so didnt need to use it) Super close to everything you would need to go to (7 min drive to TD gardens)
Can't reccomend it enough.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mr. Mandamus Overall it was a pleasant stay
Careful if you request a cab to take you to the airport and they call a guy with a plain car and takes you for more than a ride. I was charged $40.00 for a ride that only cost $25.00 when I arrived. I was also concerned as to what insurance coverage this guy had. I assumed that this was not a cab but a friend of the clerk working there. A very unprofessional experience. Management may not know about it because the liability would be unbearable......

Very convenient to both Boston and Cambridge. Lechmere Green Line just up the block. Even had good crispy bacon at the complimentary breakfast. Large room with 2 Queens. The showerhead was so good (rare) that I examined it, wrote down the name and am buying one for home. (on line I noticed alot of people say the same thing). Clearly a well-managed property with very positive friendly capable staff members.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Burkie All good with the exception of the one bed.
Great quick and easy breadfast.
One of the two queen beds that we had definitely had a leaning slope to it. While not visibly noticible you could definitely tell it after laying on it for a short period of time. My husband slept ok but I found it very uncomfortable and had lack of sleep. If we were staying more than two nights I would have definitely asked to be switchced to another room. I told the front desk about it when we checked out. I hope they looked into this problem.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BESRemy Can't depend on breakfast
We were on business and needed to be leaving the hotel by 6:20am each morning. Breakfast was never totally available until 6:15 though it was posted as being available at 6:00am. I know this may seem like a small thing, but I found it very aggravating and it started my day off on the wrong foot.

I was not totally impressed with the area when I arrived, but was so impressed when I went inside. The rooms are beautiful (with windows that even open a little bit!). The staff was so friendly and wonderful. While it's right on a highway, it is really close to the T to be able to travel and you can walk to many places. I would certainly return!

I had a weeklong stay for business and I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the room was for that length of time. I appreciated the mini fridge and microwave and especially the free WiFi. Every staff member I interacted with was friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable and the room decor gave it a great atmosphere. I would definitely recommend the hotel and I would definitely stay there again for future business trips.

Great location, walking distance to Museum of Science, Galleria Mall, "T" station, MIT (15 minutes).
Only took us 30 minutes to walk into Boston (Quincy Market), Nice Shaw's grocery store next door open until 12 am
Recommend stay away from 4:00pm Friday traffic if trying to drive to Logan airport, it is a parking lot. Took almost an hour to go 4 miles.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Photo Bob Convenient to Universities
The Holiday Inn Express Cambridge is convenient to the Universities via Shuttle Service. The Green Line Lechmere T stop is located 4 blocks away on Hwy 28, Monsignor O'Brien Hwy, .
Overall the hotel is clean, pleasant and nicely decorated with new furniture and fixtures. Parking is convenient and included.
It is a bit pricey $$$. however they do offer a "University" discount for those who know to ask.
