This was the second time I stayed at this hotel in two years. I guess they had done some remodelling since the last time I was there but I didn't really notice the difference.
The room was a decent size and very clean. I like staying at this Holiday Inn in particular because it's outside of Boston so it's cheap, and it's right down the street from Lexington (Yeah, that's right, where the shot heard round the world occurred.) But if that shot happened when I was there, I wouldn't have noticed, the hotel is quite quiet.
There's also a couple of restaurants near by, my favorite being Naked Fish. And what makes it even better is it's in walking distance.
Overall, this Holiday Inn is pretty standard and I enjoy it, I stay two nights each time and each time its been a joy. Look out for the Fenway Park seats and autographed Jim Rice baseball next to the elevator. (Because the Sox are awesome)
