Stopped here after Boston. It's far enough away from the hustle and bustle but convenient enough for visiting. Clean and comfortable, it's a great stop for families or those who prefer a bit more low key accommodations than Boston. If you want to relax after busy touring, this is the place.

Dear hqueeniew, Thank you for your review. As you mentioned we are very convenient near the highway just a short drive from the city and the business. We host many families this time of year as the venture to the coast, or mountains or the city. Hope you will return again when you are back in the area. Regards, Molly... More

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for 2 nights. The room, while older and dated, was spotless. I wish it had more outlets to charge electronics. I only had two (one in a lamp and one in the bathroom). Other than that comfortable bed and decently quiet (given there was a school group staying on the same floor). The... More

Average HI Express. Older hotel right off the highway making it a convenient location. Clean rooms and friendly staff. The usual HI Express fully stocked breakfast buffet. Located between Dunkin Donuts and a Friendly's restaurant. A decent Chinese restaurant within walking distance. Good prices considering the high cost area.

I stayed here for two nights this week while working about 15 minutes away. The front desk staff at check in were very friendly and helpful. Despite being an older hotel, it is kept up very well and the room furnishings are in good conduction. My room (a King on the second floor) was very clean, quite and the bed... More

After a fourteen hour drive on New Years Eve, Molly Mulholland, the evening manager was welcoming, and went above and beyond her duties. Checking us in, getting us settled, and even helping of secure a room for the second leg of our journey. A hotel is only as good as its staff, this hotel is superb. You couldn't do better.
