There's a limited assortment bar (only 1 kind of white wine...) but good for a quick drink. Bartender is very friendly. Food is only ok (for a quick fix). Room smelled musty and beds were uncomfortable. You pay for the location. I've stayed in HIE for half the price and twice the value. Temp in room went from A/C to heat just by going up or down one degree. Not enough light in room. Bathroom was very small. I did not have a fridge so I guess you have to request one.

This is the strangest hotel I have ever stayed in. It appears to have a long long two storey extension out the back which viewed from outside has no windows. That's because the windows are facing onto what seems to be a courtyard with a swimming pool in the middle,that has has a roof added at one point. Hence the strong smell of chlorine. Remember to close curtain as anyone passing can see what is going on in room as you need a light on at all times. The "view" from Mt "window" was a wall th... Read more

We recently stayed here while a family member had surgery at a local hospital. The hotel offered a complimentary shuttle service to and from the hospital that was great. Hotel staff and shuttle drivers were courteous, welcoming and friendly. There was a trolly stop right in front and Fenway was only a one mile walk down Beacon St. Menu was limited and food was fair in the evening - a little heavy and greasy for my liking. Did not have the breakfast. Did not like that our room did not have ou... Read more

This hotel may be ranked as a three star, but in my view the quality is that of a two star hotel and the prices charged that of a four star hotel. Our observations: 1. The price at about $350 (graduation season) a night for seven nights was totally out-of-line with much nicer hotels in the area. 2. The hotel is very tired and old. The rooms were in a condition I would expect of a two star hotel. 3. The plywood doors in the bathroom were delaminating; the wall paper looked like a patchwork q... Read more

This is an average North American Motel, set in one of the most affluent parts of Boston. Nothing special, but does a good job of offering accomodation. The only minus is the price/value which is one of the worst I have come accross ever. Reasonably well located with 15-20 minutes by taxi to Harvard square

I stayed at this property over the course of a few weeks during a consulting project in the greater Boston area. For the project I was on, I had no real input into the lodging arrangement, and the client was reluctant to pay even the average Boston lodging rates. So, since this was the most "affordable" option (still at $190/night with taxes), this property was where I was placed. Admittedly, I was very reluctant and skeptical about this property when I was reading the Trip Advisor reviews be... Read more

I was in town for a conference and this was the hotel we were instructed to use. I do not frequently stay in Holiday Inn properties so I have little to compare it to in terms of other HI locations. This is clearly an older property that is in need of updating ... the overall feel is 1980s or early 90s. It's more like a motel with a large roof. Rooms are very far from the elevator and the pool is centrally located, so walking down the hall (at least on the 2nd floor) to access guest rooms means o... Read more

We spent most of our time away from the hotel, sightseeing etc so I cannot comment on the facilities. The location was what drew us there: the T stop was right across the street from the hotel, and we had a weekly T passes so that it was easy to get around the city. The only meal we had at the hotel was the breakfast buffet, which was good and convenient but not free.

Service was friendly and accommodating. Rooms were small (fine for what we needed), bathroom was smaller (elbow-bangers) and outdated (had to slam the bathroom door to get it to shut). Overall, it wasn't bad. The reason to bring my review down so low was the cost. I can pay virtually the same rate to stay in a 5-star in downtown vs. on the outskirts. If we paid 1/3 of the cost, which would be more reasonable, the rating would be better.

Loved this hotel, it felt like you were in a holiday camp without the entertainment, most of the rooms looked inwards into a large atrium type dinning area, but on touring the U.S. there seem to be lots of hotels like this. Our room faced inwards, so we had no outside window to see what the weather was like, but that was quite nice as it was quite and felt safe. the room was big, with 2 large beds, however the bathroom could do with an update, looked like something from the 70's.

Front staff is efficient. Hotel is at a convenient location and internet worked fine. But the hotel really needs to be updated. Rooms only have windows opening towards a hallway--which is not ideal. The room is basic, bedding is comfortable enough. But there is no luggage rack or mini fridge, then the towel rack in the bathroom fell off. Also the water stopper in the sink and the shower were broken. I had to take them off so the water can drain properly.

Brookline is one of the most beautiful areas of Boston, and this hotel was walking distance to Fenway, tons of restaurants, and some just wonderful tree-lined streets. However, the hotel is VERY old. It reminds me of hotels I stayed at in the early 70s. It desperately needs some renovating. For the price, you would expect more. I will also say that the staff was very helpful and cordial. If they renovated this place it would be perfect.

We amen to Boston for the weekend to see some baseball games. First time in Boston! Great location. Easy to take the metro down to restaurants and the ball park as well as walk uptown. Hard to get a cab though. This was a little frustrating. The rooms looked out into a common area/restaurant/green space. We didn't know what time of day it was when we woke up, which was strange. I didn't like the atrium in the middle. It was less private than a regular outdoor window and hallway.

I cannot believe in 2016 that a hotel of such poor quality has a Holiday Inn sign on it. This hotel would have struggled to be a decent hotel in the 1970's. After a long day of travel to walk into this place was such a disappointment. After getting settled in (I say this loosely) went down to the bar only to be sorely disappointed again. Nothing about this hotel is redeemable. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra $80-$100/night and stay somewhere worth the value.

The hotel is old and dated. Our room door wouldn't shut properly. Cleanliness of our room was a "B" at best. They couldn't check us in until well after 4 pm and it seemed that the hotel was empty. Front desk was very mediocre and had people "filling in". It is convenient to Boston University, but I would recommend something else. This is NOT one of the new standard Holiday Inns which I like. It's a weird retrofit from the 80s.

I came to this hotel on a 5 night business trip, staying here because the conference took place at the hotel. The room was very small, with no natural light and the "window" faced into the hallway. The carpet seemed old and dirty, the towels very worn - one towel had a quarter sized hole in it. One of the blankets also had a hole in it. The toilet was toddler sized - when sitting on it, one's knees are literally up in a squat position. When I spoke to the front desk about these issues, the respo... Read more

The location was great. You can easily get to Boston or walk up to Coolidge Corner for some great food. The employees were very friendly and helpful. The cleanliness, not so much. The rooms were ok.a but out of date. Our training was downstairs, off the garage. There was a mouse one day and 2 cockroaches..that we saw. Bathroom on that floor had a urine odor......It didn't appear dirty but it smelled.

Would not recommend this hotel to anyone! Rude front desk staff who go out of their way to be u nhelpful. Rooms are like closets with no outside windows(a window into the hallway where bright lights are Burning all night long). Beds have no firmness. Sheets are old and pilled. No closet space or dresser space. No vanity soace in bathroom for toiletries. 1 small ancient elevator for the whole place. not walk away from this pit!

Coming from outside the USA, its not always easy to equate franchised hotel chains. Staff are polite and efficient but as my wife is waiting in the lounge /lobby area for our room to be ready...a furry visitor scurried across the carpet....she was not the only witness! But that apart everything they do, they normally do well, except out of 9 day our room wasn't cleaned because the staff had left for the day. Coming from Europe, we werent used to the small room/motel vibe with outdo... Read more

I do travel about 3-4 times per year when I need to stay at different hotels either in US or Europe, which makes me to have some opinion on the hotel services. Now this hotel I will consider expensive for the services that they have provided. It is conveniently located on the green C line in Brookline which makes it easy to travel to downtown, but it is not centrally located, like downtown. This makes me wonder way the cost was so high, no parking is provided, not breakfast included in the cost-... Read more

If you don't require a high-end experience, the Holiday Inn in Brookline is a no-frills, conveniently located, option. Boston and the surrounding areas are meant to be walked, so there is no real need to rent a car. And transportation options are within walking distance: a bus to Cambridge/Harvard, rail to Boston (Back Bay, financial district, etc) Also within waling distance: Harvard Avenue and Beacon Street, both which have nice eateries. And there's also a Trader Joe's nearby for stocking up ... Read more

We stayed for 3 nights in May 2016. The hotel is conveniently located in Brookline which has only a few corporate hotels in the area. The hotel is close to restaurants, bars and public transportation. The room was clean and comfortable and we did use the pool with our granddaughter one day. The staff was friendly and the service was standard. We used points to stay so I'm not sure the price of this hotel compared to other hotels in the area. Would stay here again if the price was right... Read more

The hotel is conveniently located a 10-15 minute walk away from the Longwood medical area and also close to several restaurants. There is a rail stop right out side the hotel, which made using public transportation a breeze. My room however, had a broken bathroom door and a leaking faucet in the shower... They did address my concern very timely and sent engineering to my room, but engineering failed to actually fix any of the problems. They did offer me to switch a room but I was too lazy to do...

The management and staff at this hotel were so gracious to me while staying here. My husband was at Brigham and Womens Hospital and I stayed here by myself, they saw that I was in a safe location on the first floor as I was a little uncomfortable being by myself. My stay was suppose to be for 6 days and turned into 2weeks, after one especially difficult day at the hospital I returned to my room and found that the staff and management sent me flowers and a nice note, how many places do that?
