Stayed here for 2 nights. Free self parking and free breakfast are a plus, especially since almost all Boston hotels charge astronomically for parking/valet. The elevators were extremely rickety, and at times felt like they were just going to drop. One of them you couldn't even tell what floor you were on because the light was out. Hallways smelled kind...

The hotel and its staff are very good. We found the room to be clean and perfect for our needs. There were 3 of us staying and found not enough pillows we Called front desk to request extras and within 5 mins they had arrived. We also requested an extra blanket for our second nights stay that to arrived in...

We were on a family holiday to the States and had NYC and Boston among other places on our itinerary. We did not realise that even an average/basic hotel like the Holiday Inn express costs more than a 5 star hotel in New York! The location was excellent but this was a basic - about 3 star rated hotel in...

They let me arrive early, which was a big plus! The room was very comfortable and homey. Having both a microwave and fridge was a big plus too! The staff was very friendly. Free breakfast only added to it all. With that said I am only giving 3 stars as the elevators need renovating. One didn't show which floor that...

Great location. We dropped our daughter off for her first year at BU (graduate student) and we were able to drive back and forth to her apartment (near Fenway) in no time. We had a place to park our car and drove back and forth but if you prefer the T- station was within walking distance. Breakfast was average, room...

Great location for a walking tour of Cambridge. The location is just a few blocks from Cambridge Street where there are shops & restaurants. Nice to see a bit of the local residences rather than all hotels. Staff was very friendly & helpful with good suggestions for dinner and drinks.

It was very tough to find the right hotel in Boston. We were considering parking, location and breakfast! We were driving from NY so parking was really a big deal. This hotel offers free limited parking. The parking lot gets full easily but it was safe for us to park across the street if you are a hotel guest. It...

We went to this hotel as a semi-affordable room close to downtown. It's very odd getting in to the hotel parking lot. You have to actually go past the hotel then do a u-turn at the lights. We parked and went to look for a place to eat. There are a few sketchy places a few blocks away but otherwise...

I am so sorry to hear about your issues with our parking lots. This is something we are looking to find a good solution to in the future. It isn't often that both of our lots full, but when it does we understand the inconvenience this can cause for our guests. Please consider us again in the future.
