Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Her02N0one Wifi Eggs
I had a lot of trouble with reconnecting to the wifi. The signal would always go out and take forever to reconnect.
The eggs were cold every morning and didn't have much flavor to them. Luckily. the sausage, bacon, and potatoes were terrific.
These few imperfections were far from something that would cause me to not come back. This was a great hotel and I did enjoy my stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DATDUDE Excellent Hospitality
The service at This hotel was outstanding, from the moment we walked in to the moment we left, The staff at the desk acknowledged my status as a gold member, the room was very Large,all the staff we encountered during the stay were very friendly and helpful, this hotel seems to "get it" that kind of hospitality starts from the top. The location is very easy to access as it is right off of the highway

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lisakl03 Good location, bad hospitality
We stayed for two nights and it was conveniently located near Southboro and Westboro where we needed to be for the weekend. We went to the bar both nights and get a quick drink and watch the game. The bartender wasn't friendly at all and made horrible drinks. He barely put vodka in the drinks and when asked if he could top it off he charged us and was very rude, Also, there were no snacks at all at the bar. The front desk staff was equally dismissive.
The maid service didn't provide conditioner and we had to go to the front desk both days to get it (they took the bottles from the day before!) I've never been to a hotel (including other Holiday Inns) that did not provide the mini conditioners along with the shampoo.
I would NOT stay here again simply due to the lack of service.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roy2367 Pool not heated as it should be
We have stayed at this hotel several times over the last 3-4 years. We have family in the area and enjoy bringing 2 grandchildren to the pool when we can. They love swimming and it gives the parents some time off! At least 3 times we have been disappointed. Water isn't heated to the 'promised' 80 degrees; door to outside left open so pool area is cold; it just isn't the pool experience that it should be for the adults as well as for the younger ones. I get the impression that the pool temperature is managed to save operating costs, but given that we are quickly moving into colder weather and likely there will be more guest interested in taking advantage of the pool, we hope that there is attention paid to water and air temperature in the future.
Thank you for listening.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BDW43 Like Coming Home
The staff at this Holiday Inn make weary travelers feel like they're coming home after a long trip. The general Manager and assistant Front Office Manager greeted us with personal inquiries every time we entered the lobby: "How was your day Mr. Walker? Did you have trouble finding the restaurant Mrs. Walker?", etc. They were knowledgeable of the area and provided advice to ensure a safe and pleasant visit. They even offered suggestions from the dining menu, making us feel like we were having a real home cooked meal.
If I could change anything, it would be the lighting in the bathroom.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Phonus Good location
This hotel is in a good location with many restaurants in the area. The restaurant in the hotel is ok for breakfast but did not try any other meals although the service at breakfast is hit or miss. The initial reaction is very good between the inviting lobby and the welcoming staff. I will definitely be back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Luigi2013 Quick Overnight Stay
This property was a great place to stay overnight and the value was reasonable. The parking lot was clean and there was ample parking in the back. The lobby was well maintained and clean. The front desk person was professional and efficient. The room was standard and it was tidy. The bathroom was clean with fresh towels and toiletries. Shower pressure was good. The bed was okay and the pillows were too soft for me; didn't get a good's night rest but that was because I'm a light sleeper. Had breakfast at the hotel's restaurant - continental breakfast, hot buffet (scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage) @ $11.50 for all you can eat. Overall, an excellent quick overnighter.

Rooms themselves were fine, but hotel in general was stifiling hot!!!! Being there in August was brutal.
There was a wedding one night and therefore ...NO ICE anywhere!!!!
Three out of four encounters with front desk staff-extremely rude. I would not stay here ever again and definitely not recommend. The breakfast was not worth the price and being outside any other options...should be included.

Not the best experience. The room was smelly (old cigarette smoke), and the bed and pillows were uncomfortable. The amenities were below average. Housekeeping left me four lotions but no shampoo. Breakfast was poor. Good luck turning left out of the parking lot.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CapeCodSandy Comfortable and affordable
I stayed at the Holiday Inn in Marlborough this past weekend. This is probably my 11th or 12th stay at this hotel. It is close to my family and a very convenient location to get back on Rte. 495 South to get back to Cape Cod.
The room was fine. Plenty of towels and pillows. The TV worked fine. I requested a refrigerator which was delivered promptly. However, the plug that was used when the staff came with the refrigerator did not work. I moved the refrigerator to a plug that was working. I requested that someone come to the room to repair the plug while I was out for the entire day. Upon returning at dinner time, the problem was not fixed. Because there are not many plugs available, charging the phone, ipod and ipad was a challenge. This was the only disappointment.
The room is comfortable....nothing elegant, but very satisfactory for a night or two. We did not visit the restaurant or bar on this visit.

my wife and I visit family in the area a couple times a year - generally mixing it with business. The staff at this facility is always extremely accommodating to my frequent schedule changes and the service is consistently great. There are other hotel choices in the area, but I have no reason to change

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ldubeiws Good, average hotel
While traveling the most important detail of a hotel is cleanliness. This hotel did not disappoint. Our room was very clean, and what's more, the air conditioning unit worked at maximum capacity without fail. Beds were comfortable and the room smelled clean. Ice machines ran out of ice on both floors. The hotel needs to upgrade their bath towels as they were thin and small. Excellent, easy location immediately off of Route 495 with options in both directions for groceries, fast food, pharmacy, gasoline. We arrived earlier than allowed check-in time but front desk was accommodating and quick having little to no wait. The restaurant was closed during the day on Sunday without even room service options, however it is sited close to nearby restaurants. Grabbing Monday breakfast to go was a simple egg sandwich that was dry and tasteless on a roll, my husband had an egg white omelet that was greasy, flat and in his words, disgusting! We did not use the pool. The hotel is fine for quick overnight stays and is in a safe (set up high away from the main road) but high traffic location.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jerry973 Poor answer from management
We checked in and then found out there was an Irish wolf
Hound conference. The hotel smelled of dog and when I spoke
With the manager I did not get an apprioprate answer saying they do not inform guests about who or what group is staying there. The smell of dogs was everywhere in the Hoyle including the room we stayed in. I will not select rhis hotel chain in the future if this is the way they treat their customers

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Excellent service!
I called the front desk on Saturday July 27 to get an old sheet for the bed as I had a dog with me. The phone kept cutting out. Finally I made my request and asked to have some come and look at the phone. Within minutes I had my old sheet and the maintenance man came and fixed the phone. I have never had such quick service at any hotel -ever!!! Thank you for your customer service!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JenniferB12 Bad experience at your property would not recommend.
Bad experience. We were with a hockey tournament and we were very disappointed in the level of service among other things. We heard dogs barking at night thanks to a dog convention at the hotel:( it wasn't very pleasant seeing these huge dogs (size of a horse) take a potty break in the Holiday Inn Parking Lot:(
The team asked if there was a hospitality or meeting room available for a team pizza party one night and they were very unaccomodating to us. Very rude front desk staff. Not conducive to a team event such as ours. Any questions feel free to contact me. I know I'm not alone in these concerns.

The carpet in our assigned room was filthy. The most disgusting hotel carpet I have ever seen. Most of the lights didn't work and we found hair in the bed. We switched to another room that had working lights and and a moderately dirty carpet. We also found hair in the bed in this room. The bedspreads in both rooms were filthy. The bathrooms were updated and nice. The front desk staff was friendly and polite.

My son and I had a horrible experience at the Best Western and went running for our lives...and some sleep to the Holiday Inn. We were met with a happy face, given a clean room and off my son was finally able to relax...he fell asleep.
I highly recommend this hotel for it's cleanliness and comfort. We ordered room service in the AM and it was delivered on time and delicious.
Thanks again Holiday Inn!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DocAnnie Hockey Tournament!
When I booked my stay at the hotel, I was unaware there was a hockey tournament for children. While the children (many, many, many of them) were quite well-behaved, they took up a fair amount of time in the pool and also had the elevators going continuously. Still, it was a great hotel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Darin1988 Not great
Holiday Inn has always been one of my preferred hotels. I have probably only been disappointed on two occasions in the last six years. This would number three.
The floors in the room were disgusting, which obviously made me start looking more closely at the rest of the facility more critically. In short it is dated and in need of refurbishment. Floors were worn in the hallway of my floor; it seemed half the people on my floor had to slam their doors to shut them myself included. Beds and baths were clean
The breakfast buffet the only meal I had there it was unappetizing, food was likely out past the point of a reasonable amount of time. After I had gotten my food at about 8:00 and nobody had even checked it by 8:35. (The restaurant was dated.)
The employees were pleasant and professional, and the outside and entrance of the hotel were acceptable; it did feel safe and secure.
