This was my first visit to Boston and a friend recommended Holiday Inn.
From the late night arrival after the long flight from Sydney, I was welcomed by friendly staff, an EXTREMELY comfortable bed (best I have slept on).
Breakfast was fairly typical hotel fare however the staff were friendly, efficient and nothing was a problem.
Location is great, walking distance to a lot of attractions and also convenient to public transport.
I would recommend this and would return myself.

My sister and I had a great experience staying at this Holiday Inn. The room was very clean and the staff was very helpful! This location is close to public transportation...bonus! The hotel also offers a shuttle to specific locations.

I came here when I was on a trip to Boston with my Junior High's honor society, and boy was it a good time! We ended up being the only guys from the 8th grade going on the trip, so naturally we all wanted to be in the same room because we were all really close, but the headcount of us totaled to 6 and we ended up begging our AP for an extra cot and we got it! We stood up all night watching movies and drinking decaf coffee that was provided and just had a lot of fun playing games and such. The room itself was really nice, with a nice view of the pool, a stocked bathroom, and a whole bunch of space! Also, the room we stayed at actually have a TV that supported component cables, and unlike most hotels, you could bring your apple TV or xbox and actually set it up, too bad we didnt know that! The breakfast the following morning was great, and we stuffed ourselves so much and there was still enough for a second serving! Great trip!

What attracted us to this hotel is the free wi-fi and parking. And we expected everything else will be fine. However, the wi-fi speed and coverage are awful. The staff are good and helpful, but the room service is not good. In our first night, we ordered room service, and strangely they brought the food as a cheap delivery service and plastic bags. By the way, the menu was not in the room, I had to go to reception and ask for it. Finally, the area does not have much shopping stores (it's almost dead), but it's close to Boston downtown.

Greetings,
Thank you for your great feedback. I apologize for our wifi service, and will be sure to look into this. Wifi is one of the most important amenities when staying at a hotel, and we want ours to be flawless. I will also review our room service and look at upgrades thanks your feedback. I also wanted to let you know that Assembly Square, an area less than a mile from us, is currently building an outlet shopping area, and is scheduled to be open in May of 2014. I sincerely hope you will visit us again when in the area. Thank you for staying with us and for letting us know about your experience, it helps in making us better!

Stayed recently at the Holiday Inn in Somerville, Mass. The hotel has a great front desk staff, and its rooms are clean and updated. They helped me get taxis to Boston and with early check-in - both of which were very useful. The location was ideal for personal reasons. However, my experience overall was compromised by the very poor quality of the heating/AC system in my room. It is an old fan system - which switched on and off during the night - and it was incredibly noisy. It also buzzed occasionally, adding to the noise. While the hotel has invested in room decor and the overall look of the building (a plus), it needs to invest in the systems sufficiently to match this. Until they do, call me sleepless in Somerville.

Hello,

I sincerely apologize for you not being able to get any sleep when staying with us. It is nice to read you enjoyed our renovations, and our staff, but at the end of the day a good night's sleep is what it is all about. We are always looking at our hvac units, and are upgrading the thermostats in many of our rooms. We will continue to constantly strive for the best and quiet temperature controls possible. Thank you for sharing this with us, and I do hope you will visit us again when in the Boston area.

Again, I apologize and thank you for choosing us!

fabulous room and bed. friendly staff. free shuttle bus! breakfasts were good choice and fairly good evening menu and the price we paid was great compared to other Boston Hotels. No porter service though we didn't mind that. Kimberley on reception was especially helpful.

We really struggled to find a reasonably-priced hotel in Boston so were very pleased with the Holiday Inn in Somerville - we got a good rate. Both the area and the hotel itself were better than I expected from the reviews.

It's close to the T or there is a complimentary van which will take you to Quincy Market. Cambridge/Harvard is walkable or there are buses. Parking is free, unlike central hotels. The room was clean and had typical Holiday Inn facilities. The staff were helpful.

A nearby little gem, the Tavern at the World's End is just up the road and does craft beer, good food etc - we liked.
