“Great place to stay with kids in the Boston area”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

Nice hotel close to the subway. Free parking. Great pool and play area for the kids! The only down side is the industrial area that its in. No good places to eat close. If you plan on eating in the city this place is great. $179 per night.

I stayed at this hotel as I was attending a Red Sox game and exploring the city of Boston. We arrived, it is located in an industrial section but nothing seemed unpleasant about the area. We were shocked about the price however, we did not think a Holiday Inn would cost us almost $300 CDN and still do not think it was justified. The room was clean and everything was as we requested. However, 5 minutes into check in I was unpacking my bag and a random person just waltzed into my room. We did notify the front desk about this and they said "if it happens again, let us know". Luckily, it did not. However, I did move my valuables from the room to the car. I would've been satisfied with a key change. Also, the lady when we checked in.. was not very friendly at all, not that it affected our stay.. but its always nice to see a friendly face first.

Aside from that, it's a nice hotel. Located pretty close to all the main attractions, even though we chose to walk to most places.

Dear kelsielynne,
I really appreciate you sharing this feedback with us. I sincerely apologize to you, it is inexcusable for one of our front desk agents to not be welcoming and friendly, and to have the inconvenience of another guest walking in on you. I have shared your comments with our Front Desk Manager, so she may review with her team.
Again I apologize, this is not the level of service we provide. Thank you for staying with us, we greatly appreciate your business. I do hope you will choose us again when in the Boston area.

This is a lovely hotel but a long way out of the centre of Boston. We were however taken into the City by a courtesy car and collected later in the evening.

We were in a large party from England and we were segregated for breakfast which was awful. The first morning the sausages were raw and there was not bacon. We ate cereal from paper plates and drank cold decaf coffee from polystyrene cups. There were no yoghurts or muffins. This would probably be put down to the amount our tour company negotiated for the breakfasts.

Room Tip: All rooms are good I think.

We spent three nights at this hotel on a two week trip taking in Boston, Cape Cod, and Rhode Island. Service was good and staff were very helpful. Special mention for the guy in the leisure/pool area - I think his name was Kerry. Very friendly and helpfull. Went out of his way to help make our trip enjoyable. He deserves a bonus! Overall, the hotel offers good value and shuttle service into the centre was excellent. Rooms were both clean and comfortable. Would stay there again and would recommend it to others.

The location is not in Boston center but the hotel provides free convenient shuttle.
The team at the reception is excellent.
The air condition is quite noisy and not so effective.
If you have business in Somerville it is the right place to stay

Room Tip: Take room facing back they are quieter

I had several meetings in Cambridge and the cost of hotels there was through the roof. After looking around, I expanded my search to Somerville which just a short trip from Cambridge and elected to stay at the Holiday Inn near Bunker Hill since, at least, it was on the same side of the river and seemed like commuting to the meetings would be reasonable.

It was quite a nice hotel. The cost was less obscene than Cambridge hotels (although -- to be be fair -- it was still a non-trivial $250/night with taxes). The room was very comfortable, with free internet and free parking.

Minor complaints -- the length of the room made it a bit difficult to watch TV --- I realize that I'm complaining about the room being too big, but it did just seem like it needed a bigger TV or a different layout. Internet, while free, was clunky. The hotel is in an industrial part of town, and the neighborhood didn't seem especially welcoming. Traffic was a mess due to some construction (you need to have an updated GPS/Phone) to avoid the bridge problem.

The commute to my meetings in Cambridge was just under 2 miles,and the traffic was slow going through some difficult to navigate streets. It was definitely worth a tiny bit more of a commute to save something like $100 (or more)/night.

Stayed May 7, 2014.
Great location to Boston downtown with room prices much better.
Staff at this hotel was awesome... one of their managers actually drove our party over to downtown Boston in the hotel shuttle van so we did not have to wait 30 mins for regular shuttle driver.
All the ladies at the front desk were super friendly.
Complimentary breakfast much better than expected w/ really nice and attentive wait staff complementing the self serve setup.
Rooms were really nicely appointed, a bit more so than most holiday inns I have stayed at.

Highly recommended! Thanks for a great stay!

Room Tip: I had fifth floor away from elevator, King bed... very nice room...
