I would not recommend this hotel. Although most of the staff seem like nice people, the management is not, and it shows in the way they treat customers. There are much better options in Waltham for the same money. And much nicer looking places too. I had a very bad experience with this hotel and will never return or recommend...

Stayed here for work, wishing I had stayed at another hotel till I walked in. The place was clean modern up to date. Currently under rennovations but you never tell except for the plastic on the carpet. Staff was nice and friendly. Then breakfast was great. Next time I'm in that area I'll stay there again !!

We stayed there for 3 nights. We got a renovated room, which was very nice. The bed was comfortable. Both me & my wife slept very well and I can't tell for sure whether it was due to the hotel or just luck, but I'll attribute them the benefit anyway. The AC/heater unit produced just a mild hum and didn't...

We visited during a renovation project. I must say that the construction work was quiet and well scheduled. We had one of the renovated rooms. First issue was that we received a slide-in key card, but the room had been changed for a 'swipe' reader. Had to get new cards. Rooms are nicely appointed, but seemed small and tight with...

Fine. Yes, there was a tiny hair in the back corner of the bathroom, but nowhere I was stepping... If that would freak you out , then this is not meant for you. I was more than satisfied for the great price I got. Very comfortable bed!

I stayed here for 2 nights in a king size room. There was plenty of space and the bed was comfortable. The room was up to date. The room was not as quiet as I would hope, but I didn't have any trouble sleeping. The breakfast was pretty standard and not too impressive, but for free it was sufficient. I'd...

I selected this Holiday Inn due to price and location to family I was visiting in Concord. I checked in late and left mid-morning so my overnight was short, sweet and comfortable. The room was very clean, but I have to say for a hotel located outside the city the room was quite cozy (meaning I'd expect it to be...
