I stayed here for 5 nights at the end of August on a business trip. I never would have stayed this far out of Boston if it wasn't for my business needs being this far out. I have to say that upon arriving to the hotel, I was kind of dissapointed at my initial first glance. Big red brick building without much character. Inside brought with it a little more charm at the front lobby/restaurant area.
My room was on the 3rd floor down the end of a wing that was being rennovated. If it wasn't for the current rennovation, I would have turned right around and left due to everything being so unkempt. I do have to say, though, that, as I arrived to my room, I was pleasantly surprised! The room was large enough for me, had a nice desk and a bed that was actually one of the more comfortable ones I have slept in at a hotel in quite a long time - and at a Holiday Inn nonetheless!
My room was one of the recently rennovated rooms, so I would have to recommend to anybody planning a trip here to ensure that you request a rennovated room. You won't be sorry! If you are staying here in the near future, ignore any of the chipped paint on the walls, torn carpet, etc., This is part of their rennovation and should not be indicative of your stay in your room.
Two complaints, though, that I do have to point out. One morning, at around 5:30am, I heard a loud sound that sounded like a power tool coming from eitehr downstairs or down the hall. The only thing I could make it out to be was the rennovation team getting an early start... I really hope it was something else, as that would be totally unacceptible in my book for a hotel to have loud work happening that early...
My other complaint is the free high speed internet. I know I shouldn't be complaining about free high speed internet, but do have to say that they really need to consider upgrading their avaliable bandwidth - especially during peak hours (7pm to 10pm). I was trying to use remote desktop to my home computer and the speed was horrible!!! Reminded me of the old dial up days with each screen "painting itself" one block of lines at a time!!!
Other than that, I had an adequate stay.
