Didn't expect such a great experience at a Holiday Inn - this hotel was terrific. Room was clean, staff great, shuttle driver very pleasant and the shuttle service a great convenience. Because I was on business without a rental car, ate every dinner at the restaurant. The menu became old very quickly. Otherwise, I would highly recommend this hotel.

The Holiday Inn in Boxborough was clean and nicely priced at $89/night. We found that we couldn't turn down the heat, though. It was either blasting, or not on at all. We also had an unpleasant experience when we went to their restaurant for breakfast. We asked how much the buffet was. We were told the price-$14.95 (Wow!!!) So, we...

We were looking for a February get-away for the kids sorta close to Wachusett Mountain with a pool, and since we saw the good reviews on Tripadvisor, we pulled the trigger for Holiday Inn Boxborough. I paid $130 for a poolside double room 138 AAA rate. It was a nice stay! A solid alternative if you don't want to invest...

I was booked here for a work trip, one night only. Surprised to be offered my choice of Priority Choice rewards on check-in. And I was booked into a quiet room, which was easily accessed by parking near the side door, and going up one set of stairs (elevator was available also). The room was clean, newer linens and toiletries....

I'm usually not very big on Holiday Inns but this one was excellent. Our daughter's wedding was nearby and we both held rooms for our guests and stayed there ourselves. Rooms were spacious, beds were comfortable, bathrooms were clean, service was good and the hotel was conveniently located just off I-495.
