Excellent location in Cambridge

Pros: Location and cleanliness, spacious rooms.
Cons: Conditions of the drain stoppers, both were disconnected from linkage and dropping down, thus plugging the drain. Sounds like a simple plumber job.
Location: Hotel is in the heart of Cambridge. T-station (mass transit), museum of sciences, restaurants and other places of interest within walking distance.
Not that the rooms are particularly comfortable, but all the basic conveniences are there. The shower is good, but the bath drain stopper was disconnected from the lever, so it kept falling down and plugging the drain and we had to pull it out with fingers. The sink stopper had the same problem. The breakfast was included, but hot items like sausage and omelet tasted horrible. We tried pancake machine, but pancakes that tasted like rubber, so we resorted to cereal with yogurt. Perhaps this is due to absence of a restaurant in the hotel. The most disappointing thing occurred on our departure. We accidentally left beautiful raw fresh ginger in the fridge. In just about 40 min after our departure we realized that and called the front desk, but staff has already disposed of it. That was especially inconsiderate in view of the fact that our bags were still at the front desk, so they knew we are coming back to the hotel. I understand, there are food regulations, but on a human level they could hold on or let us know before disposing of this rather unique and expensive item.

Hotel is close to Boston

Pros: Hotel was clean and staff was pleasant. Close to where I had to be.
Nice hotel, but the cost is high for the area. Felt that the cost should have been in the $250 range as it is only an Inn, with no bar/restaurant.

Do not stay here!

I had booked and paid through Travelocity. Hotel staff lied about their charging my debit card a random amount, promised that they hadn't, would not provide a copy of my bill upon checkout and did not call me to verify no charges on the card as they promised to do. The room itself was fine, but how can you enjoy your vacation when bums pop out of the dumpster, the extra parking is across a busy highway at a sketchy car wash and staff demand a card on file even there is nothing to spend money on, then charge whatever they want to in your card!

Clean, comfortable, modern and spacious

Pros: modern and clean look
Cons: the walls were thin, and you could hear ppl in the hallway
Location: central location very close to downtown Boston. The mall there is great!
The room was very spacious, clean, and comfortable. The staff was not that friendly, but the location and parking was nice.

Pros: I liked that the hotel provided free parking and free breakfast.
Cons: The room we had was a bit on the smaller side. I wish it was a bit bigger.
Location: The neighborhood was a bit seedy. A car is a big plus if you are staying in this location since there are not a lot of attractions close by.
Unfortunately my husband and I were in town for the funeral of a close friend. Since it was a sudden and unexpected trip we needed a hotel that was inexpensive and close to the service, but nice. This Holiday Inn Express was a good combination of both. The staff was really friendly and it was really helpful to have the option of breakfast. The day of the service was a bit rushed, but it was comforting to not have to go out and look for a place to eat. I also liked the flavored water and cookies in the lobby!!
