Nice hotel short drive to Boston

Stayed at this hotel for two nights. At first glance the area around the hotel didn't look the best but once entering the hotel and using the complimentary shuttle service my mind was at ease. Definitely recommend using the shuttle to get into Boston, driver Rob was the absolute best!! Traveling with three little ones and lots of stuff is a task but Rob made it so enjoyable and was very helpful. I would stay here again!

Get a room with an odd number!

Pros: Hotel restaurant was happy to make my dinner and breakfast "to go". Good way to save the room service delivery charge.
Overall my stay was fine. Nothing special, but comfortable and convenient. However, rooms with even numbers are on the west side of the building. There is an apartment building outside the window. The flood lights from that neighbor are extreme and disrupt what would otherwise be a good night's sleep. The blackout curtains didn't close all the way, so I was kept awake by laser beam of light from next door.

Ok place to sleep - not much else

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: Nothing close, Poor breakfast
This was my first visit to Boston. I was surprised by how expensive hotels are in the area - the was one of the most reasonably priced ones. The room was ok - a place to sleep. Pretty much it. My window only gave me a view of HVAC machinery on the roof. There isnt much in the area. It is a short walk to the Orange Line, so that was good. Breakfast was completely unimpressive (epsecially for the price), but there werent many options nearby.

Nice hotel

Pros: free parking, nice restaurant
Cons: no complimentary breakfast
Was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. It was very nice, plenty of parking (no fee for parking was a plus for a Boston area hotel), room clean, nice restaurant and close to the T. Would recommend this hotel.

Great value for family

Pros: free shuttle
Hotel is in a very convenient location and a vwery good find. Yes, the neighborhood looked a little sketchy, but I felt safe enough to walk the two block to the Dunkin Donuts to get breakfast. We have twin 4 year olds so the convenience of the shuttle was HUGE! We got dropped off at the aquarium in th emorning then took a trolley bus tour around the city with a stop at Quincy Market and the Childrens Museum in between. When we were all done, we walked back to the aquarium and called for a ride. They warned us that it could be an hour, but when we called they told us 10 minutes. The next morning we took the shuttle to Harvard and visited the Natural History Museum ( a must if you have a boy into dinosaurs). They dropped us off and picked us up no problem, even though we checked out that morning. Warning that the hotel is under renovations so no pool until April. I think their website says that now but it didn't when we booked. I loved the eggs benedict for breakfast at the restaurant there but my husband ordered scrambled eggs and they were the fake kind. He didn't like them and they took it off the bill. Good service.

Many Pluses

The Holiday Inn Somerville is a short walk to the Sullivan Station T and has free parking, two big bonuses for a Boston area hotel. The room we had was air-conditioned (this was easily adjustable), nicely decorated and clean with a large king-size bed and pull-out sofa (not used), a bathroom with a hair dryer on the wall and a sign saying any forgotten accessories (toothbrush, comb, etc.) would be complementary and furnished by calling the front desk staff. It seemed like everywhere we turned there was a sign saying, "Let us know how we can make you comfortable". Add to it the free USA Today newspapers and the availability of a free shuttle to several Boston spots throughout the day, and we could see why this hotel was so highly rated. The only problem we had was that when we checked in at 4:05 pm (check-in starts at 4pm) we were told the rooms were not ready. And we ended up waiting over an hour to get into our room. The front desk staff were polite and explained that they were sold out the night before. We overheard that they were sold out for our check-in day as well. With check-out at 11 am, we were surprised that the rooms weren't ready 5 hours later. We just felt that they should have offered us something- even a cup of coffee in their on-site restaurant, some type of acknowledgment that our delay was due to them. We had explained that we were late to an evening event, but ended up waiting with all of our bags in the lobby. This was not a deal-breaker for us- the hotel clearly makes an effort to please their patrons- but it would have been nice for the staff to reach out to us over this incident. This is the only reason I'm giving this hotel 4 stars. Otherwise, we probably will try this hotel again the next time we're in Boston.

This hotel was comfortable and the staff, helpful and courteous.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
We arrived before check-in time, and the staff kindly arranged that we could go to our room early. Later, they checked in to see that all was well.
