Holiday Inn Boston-Bunker Hill
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Somerville
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Was looking for a place to stay for under $125 before taxes, and found a promotion for this hotel. HIBH was only 5-10 minutes outside the north end of Boston, and the free shuttle service was fantastic and speedy. Cabs from North End after shuttle hours was only about $10 as well. Stayed with one other adult in the standard single King Size bed room. Very spacious and clean! Ceiling to floor windows overlooking Boston. Came with a complimentary breakfast for 2. Service was fine. If another promotion or deal rolls in, will be staying here again.

Stayed here one night which was OK. we toured Boston day of and next day so location was good as we had a car. We walked to dinner and I was a little leery of the area and definitely would not walk outside after dark. Rooms were OK but it was hard to get it dark enough inside
Did not eat here as it was overpriced

A wonderful, clean hotel with equally wonderful staff. All staff in this hotel are friendly and approachable. They mapped a way for us via subway to see the fourth of July fireworks in Cambridge, no problem at all. The hotel is modern with comfy beds and very clean rooms. It is located just a short walk to the subway station, where you can be downtown within minutes. The neighbourhood is a working class one, however, that does not make it unsafe. We felt comfortable walking at various times of the day or night. Boston was a great place to visit.

Staying here for a medical appointment and the hotel is super nice. Great beds, water temp & pressure, didn't eat at the restaurant (really pricey). The area looks a little rough but I felt safe. Also the air wasn't working and someone was up to look at it within 5 mins of the call to the front desk.

Room Tip: The automatically charge $50 to your credit card "in case" you eat at the restaurant or so...

This is a nice place to stay, but during our stay we were woke up around 1:30 am because the people in the next room decided to put their television on at that time. It woke both of us out of a sound sleep. Then around 5 am, it sounded like someone was loading and picking up dumpsters across the street at a business. That went on for a little while but much too early. The hotel is definitely not noise free. It seems to have been recently updated but could use a fan in the bathroom. NO FAN AT ALL !!!! The bed is comfy, the building and rooms seem to be very well kept as far as cleaned. The only problem besides the noise, was that housekeeping forgot to restock washcloths and a bath mat. We would definitely stay again, but maybe would ask for a different side of the building.

Room Tip: The walls are not soundproof, even for a tv being on. The local area was very noisy very early am

Checked in tonight to a wonderful clean room. Nice furniture, sheets, and towels. Ate in the small restaurant downstairs. Service was slow but the food was great. Staff was friendly and attentive. The "sports deck" which is where the pool is is great. Chairs, snooker, climbing wall, ping pong, nice pool, movie screen for a tv playing a Disney movie. I find it all very clean. We are here for three nights using our Priority Club reward points, but the prices here are comparable to other hotels in Boston. I also love Holiday Inn pillows. Thank you!

Pros - friendly and helpful staff, shuttle was convenient and timely, beautiful pool and rec area, very comfortable bed, quiet at night.

Cons - we wanted an extra blanket and were told the hotel did not have extras (odd!), breakfast was mediocre tasting at best (would be fine if it was free, but not liking having to pay for mediocrity.)

It was fine for a brief two night stay and I think I'd do it again if the price was good.

Btw - I know previous reviewers were concerned about the neighborhood. Yeah, it's not a wealthy area, but we did not feel unsafe or uncomfortable walking to the subway (10 min non hurried walk).

Hello maddiecat22,
Thank you for sharing with us this great feedback. I am pleased our team and shuttle were great experiences. I do apologize for breakfast, the chef is working on this menu, and for us to not have an extra blanket is inexcusable, and I will surely follow up on this.
Thank you again for letting us know about your stay, and for choosing us. I do hope you will be back to visit and experience a great breakfast.
