Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Sleep deprived one If I'd have known there was a major dog convention ....
Imagine my surprise when it became apparent that there was a national breed dog show / convention going on at this hotel during the same week as I booked a room for a business trip.
There were hundreds of dogs - of a particularly yippy breed.
The room across the hall from me had at least three constantly barking dogs. Contacting the front desk didn't help.
I'm sure it was lucrative for this pet friendly hotel to host this event - but I wish that I had been informed ahead of time that this was dog takeover week. - I would have stayed somewhere else. I have been contacted by other Holiday Inn hotels ahead of arrival date when they had facility closures. (resurfacing the pool, for instance). I can also confirm previous comments that the water in the room was not hot.
I won't plan on staying here again..
On a positive note - the restaurant is okay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Patricia26 Overall experience
We had a wonderful time at the Holiday Inn, Boxboro. Our son loved the pool and so did we. We felt like we were sitting outside not inside when we sat on the chairs outside our hotel room by the pool. What a wonderful setting.
We also enjoyed the Easter Brunch the next day when our family joined us. There were 20 of us and everyone, without exception, raved about the wonderful food selections at the buffet.
The only negative relative to our stay was that there were dogs staying in guest rooms and they barked in the hall several times during the night and woke us up.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RenJr Not a good experience
I don't want to beat a dead horse but there was two things that fell short of our expectations. Due to our flight being delayed we got at the hotel late. Come to find out that we weren't in the best location for food. The dining area was closed and there was nothing around so we ended up not eating that night. My room was ok but my work partner experience was not good because he had no hot water in the morning so he had to take a cold shower. We were there just for 9 hours due to us getting there late and us getting up early so it wasn't the best experiance. I wish this hotel could give my work partner a cash refund or something. I felt bad when he had to take a cold shower. He did call the front desk.

Overall we liked everything about the hotel, the restaurant and service of the staff. The only thing that I would suggest is the repair of the hotels entrance road. I was a little disappointed with the condition of the road but hey were not all perfect.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JPI58 My stay at Boxborough
While the staff exceeded my expectations in professionalism and friendliness I was quite disappointed in the facility. The room was CLEAN but the bed and pillows were old and uncomfortable.
The exercise facility had newer equipment but most of the equipment did not work properly. The recumbent bicycle's timer and exercise type did not work but the resistant setting did. The elliptical machine felt like it had a broken bearing and was totally unusable.
While I can suffer through a night on a bad bed not being able to exercise properly in the morning is very disappointing.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dbleze Ok Hotel for Business
I have stayed many times at this hotel and it is an efficient but aging property. Service is good but room qualify varies and noise levels can vary depending on the location of the room. Room furnishings are barely adequate and need updating. In my room the air conditioning and other services worked, but the shower rod was not level so shower curtain did not stay in place during showers. Close to business I deal with and other hotels are a considerable distance. So ok if closeness to Boxborough is important, otherwise I would pick somewhere else.

Wonderful property and service but the Air Conditioner/Heater was very noisy, loud and cycled on on off continually which kept waking me up so I had to turn it off and made it the room colder than I would have liked when I got up in the morning.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CandidReviewer If you're looking for a room . . .
If you're looking for a room that is either too hot or too cold all night long, this is the room for you. If you're looking for a room that has no refrigerator, this is the room for you. If you're looking for a room where you can focus down and prepare for a speaking engagement the next morning with throbbing bass music until 10:00 PM at night from a sweet-sixteen party and kids yelling and having a great time in a swimming pool, all just a few steps from your room, this is the room for you. If you'd enjoy carrying your luggage from the parking lot, through the lobby, going up an elevator, and passing over 30 other door rooms on the way to your room, this is definitely the room for you. If you'd like to stay at a place that is about twenty years behind the times and mysteriously over-rated, yet pay contemporary rates for the experience, this is the place for you. Of course, even though some of these concerns might bother you, along with a few other unmentioned items, because there are few alternatives in the area, this just might HAVE to be the place for you. But the staff is friendly and the turkey wraps are great!

We had a one bed room suite which had two bathrooms (very convenient with a family of 5). We also had a balcony that overlooked the pool area. I felt very comfortable in the hotel. The pool was AWESOME! We will definitely be back!!

We went to get out of the house and to forget about the long cold winter. The pool is an oasis and allowed our kids and us to forget about the cold and snow for a day. The room, service and food were great. We got a bonus as the function hall was having a Home Show and we spent some time checking that out the morning after we checked out. We'll be back.

We had the opportunity to stay here for a dog event and it was very comfortable and the dog loved it. The facility and staff were very dog friendly. Bed was super comfy and plenty of room for a large dog. We would recommend it to our dog friends.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Denyse2014 Air conditioner/heater and pillows and internet
Just a couple things to improve. The pillows were not comfortable....need different firmness and longer pillows in the mix.
The heater was very loud in my room.
The internet keeps kicking you out when you move from your room to the lobby and back.
Also, the black out curtains should cover the whole window as the lights by the pool on each door are quite bright at night and shine around the partial blackout blinds.
Otherwise very nice hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TravelerTD Great Indoor Pool Atrium
I booked a block of rooms for 1 night. Before I emailed the details to our group, we decided to book our room so that if there were any issues, we can get them resolved before our entire group follows the same path. The details provided to us were very easy and there were no issues with booking individual rooms under our block name.
Our only disappointment with our stay was with check in.
I was offered a gift or 500 club member points for being a club member. I requested to the gentleman at the front desk, can I get a poolside room overlooking the indoor pool atrium, instead of the gift or 500 points. It was 4pm. He checked and told me there were no more poolside rooms available, sorry. So we were given a parking lot view room.
What disappoints me the most is 2 families in our group who reserved their rooms after we did a month sooner, checked in an hour after we did and was given poolside rooms. They are not Holiday Inn Club members like we are.
Or shall I say, like we were.

Attended a seminar there and found the location to be inconvenient to alternate food choices. Kids staying there were expectedly loud in the pool area but unfortunately so in the dinning room. Atrium fountains were a nice touch

The room was nothing special. It took me awhile to figure out how to turn on some heat. The bed was very comfortable. I enjoyed the food in the dining room. I loved the pool area.I appreciated it's landscaping. It gave me a very nice place to make my daily walk. I would have loved a hot tub to soak in.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by habadash14 Upgraded to Suite
While I was upgraded to a suite with plenty of room, I was disappointed in the bathroom especially. The large shower's drain did not work, the water pooled in the shower. I had to use the small shower in the other room. Also, the faucet in the large bathroom leaked onto the countertop! The cabinets also need to be refurbished, very old looking. The fan was very loud as well. Overall, the Holiday Inn need to be renovated with new amenities.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LaurieAnn337373 School vacation destination
The Holiday Inn at Boxborough is our family's favorite hotel. We stayed there one night last year during school vacation. We liked it so much that we decided to make this an annual event!
The hotel staff is so nice. They answered patiently any question we had, even gave us tape to wrap a birthday present! The rooms, especially those on the first or second floors with doors that open onto the atrium, don't feel like hotel rooms. They made us feel like we were at a tropical resort!
The kids were never bored, between exploring the atrium and pool and even the outdoor paths. And they ate free at the restaurant for dinner and breakfast.
All this, and we were even allowed to bring our dog so that we didn't have to find him a kennel!

Staff was rude. Room was not ready at check-in. Wrong room was given. Pool was over-crowded with outside people not even staying at the hotel. Room was good except for the animal smell. Food was average.
Final bill was incorrect - check your bill!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mariah35 Family friendly with Great staff!
I am a manager at a local resort on Cape Cod. We booked a Tube and stay package at your hotel to bring our 3 children tubing at Nashoba Valley to end out the school vacation. The hotel was conveniently located right off the highway and only 10 mins to the tubing park. Kelsey was at the front desk upon check in and was friendly from the moment I walked through the front door! Our room wasn't ready when we got there but we were very early so I expected it. She recommended a few local attractions that we could go do if we were not interested in using the facilities on property while we waited for the room. We went to the local bowling alley which was close to the hotel and the kids had a blast beating me! When we got the call our room was ready and headed back to the hotel the excitement from all the kids was great. All they wanted to do was swim:) Our suite was great. When we ever looked out our slider and there was the beautiful pool in the indoor atrium you could see the kids faces light right up. They wasted no time in changing into their suits. The pool was busy because of school vacation but it wasn't over crowded at all. We swam at least 3 times in our one night stay. The hotel was great for dinner, awesome staff and great service and food! Breakfast as well on Sunday morning was fabulous!!! I would highly recommend your facility and look forward to coming back! Thank you all for a great stay:)
