Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AbueloSi Bathroom with no vents!
I was surprised to find out my bathroom had no vents. I thought this was a requirement mandated by the building code. In any case, it should have been mandated by the common sense of your architect and/or designer!

I thought this Holiday Inn Express, ten years old, was new it is so clean and well maintained. Continental breakfast was varied and well supplied. A good value, highly recommended.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JaeCie Great staff, great location, great experience
I recommend this hotel to anyone traveling between Connecticut and Massachusetts or upstate New York on the Mass Pike. Conveniently located, great service, excellent amenities. Pillows could be firmer - they were a bit too soft for my liking.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by rock lobster Nice hotel but beware overbooking fiasco!
The hotel is nice, clean, and front desk was courteous. No concerns there. HOWEVER, they majorly messed up my group booking and overbooked the hotel! We were forced to leave after staying one night and scramble to find another hotel in town. This was ridiculous. Our family and friends were then separated for the weekend!! I can't emphasize enough how stressful it was to return from our graduation ceremony to find a notice under our door stating we had overstayed our welcome and had to vacate immediately. It was a serious scramble calling around to other hotels in the area to find a place. As the person organizing the group, I was completely embarrassed and I don't think my reputation as a group organizer amongst the group will ever be the same. So disappointed.

This hotel was very nice with good location to shops, restaurants, and attractions. Helpful staff with a nice breakfast variety. The 24 hour coffee and tea service was also a nice feature.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 66Darrell Good stay, but nothing special.
This hotel had the location we needed between a Saturday evening in Boston and a Sunday graduation in Western Mass. Staff was great. Room was good, but lacked power outlets where we needed them. Breakfast was OK at best.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ssock great room. some areas to improve
We had a great corner suite. Very spacious and very clean. Beds were comfortable and even though we were facing the highway, it was quite quiet.
The shampoo and conditioner bottles were stiff plastic, not easy to use. The hotel should also provide bottled water.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by spectacles14 Comfortable with Great Service
The room was extremely comfortable from various aspects: The beds, the lighting, the bathroom cleanliness, and overall temperature. The staff were extremely attentive and kind, and the maid service always left us with more than enough extra towels and pillows. The food was good and breakfast was served early allowing us to enjoy the food before 6 most mornings.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RossG123 Excellent Hotel Stay
I have stayed at a number of Holiday Inn Express Hotels and I am a Platinum Member which gives me a good basis to compare hotels. I found this particular hotel to be excellent. Everything from the staff to the condition of the room and premises was 5 out of 5. The staff was very helpful and courteous. Very easy check-in and check-out. My room was quiet, with good lighting and sufficiently dark for a good night's sleep. It was also very clean, with a comfortable and newer bed and pillows. The continental breakfast offered a greater variety of food compared to most other hotels where I have stayed. Lastly, I found the hotel to be conveniently close to the highway for easy access.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by p-anne100 Good location, quiet and comfortable over all.
The hotel is a clean, centrally located; easy to find. The only thing I found annoying was the brightly back lit thermostat in the room. I had to place a dark cloth over it in order to sleep at night.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SnoPro Consistant Standard
For a "near Boston" accomodation this is a great choice and value. As a frequent guest I have noted little slippage in quality over nearly a decade. Until last week. My preferences on file, the room assigned nevertheless avoided them all. I have a tobacco alergy, yet upon opening the door to the designated non smoking room, the odor of stale cigarette smoke was overwhelming. Also, the room was on the highway (loud) side of the hotel and on a lower floor, despite my stated preferences, always complied with in the past. The desk clerk advised that the most convenient parking slot turned out to be the entire length of the hotel away from the room. To the credit of the hotel, when the smoking issue was brought to the clerk, my room was promptly changed to one that actually complied with my preferences. That said, I question the vigilance of this hotel with regard to enforcement of the non smoking policy. A minor point overall, yet it seems petty to have eliminated the small guest check in rewards that had been customary in the past. These missteps aside, I will likely continue to patronize the Auburn HIExpress until a more competitive choice is developed.

Nice quiet location convenient to shopping and restaurant. I usually stay here to visit my kids in college. Near the highway and 10 minutes to Worcester. Several shopping malls 5 minutes away, Outback about a mile away.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by willow3333 Great service, clean, but mushy mattress
I have back issues and have come to rely on Holiday Inn Express for their great mattresses. This HIE disappointed. The mattress wasn't horrible, but was mushy, making it uncomfortable for me. Otherwise, this HIE lived up to the high standards I've come to expect from the franchise, although people might want to ask for a room on the side away from the very near highway.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Weekender57 Average accomodations
The hotel overall was average, and a bit overpriced for the value received. The furnishings were a bit dated, but very clean. The bed was ok. I was disappointed with the room's heating/air conditioning - even though digitally controlled, the in-room unit was a basic wall unit that didn't generate decently cool air. The breakfast area looked very nice, but the food selections were modest.

This hotel is just the right distance out of Boston to be reachable after flying in from the UK. I would highly recommend this hotel as it is welcoming, clean and tidy and the staff very helpful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by crb126 Comfortable and Convenient
Our stay was fine - room was clean and staff was friendly. Location is a very convenient drive to all the universities in Worcester, MA. My only complaint is staff was not aware of my Ambassador status and did not provide Ambassador extras or give me a 4 pm checkout. I am guessing it was a new staff member at the desk, because it was clearly indicated on my reservation. Note, she was very kind and friendly to my young son who was traveling with me. That could have been the distraction.

Hotel was very clean. Staff was very friendly. Only compaint would be the quality of the "hot breakfast". If the eggs were out, there was no meat...when the sausage arrived, they were out of eggs. The dining area was very busy and they only had one staff member manning the are.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve915 Extremely friendly staff!
Over the last 3 years, I've averaged about 30 weeks a year in hotels. Some good, some not so good, but I believe this one is in the top 3 for the friendliest staff. I truly believe that when they smile, it's not just because they're just doing it because it's their job but because they really enjoy their job. I'll be back for sure.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ChinaShrek11 Friendly staff
I stayed here with a colleague for two nights. We were attending a conference in Sturbridge, MA. This appears to be a new Holiday Inn Express. The room was very clean. The wifi worked great. The staff at check-in and during breakfast was cheerful and energetic. Breakfast was above average for a HIX. There was fresh fruit and a pancake maker. Tables were kept clean and items were quickly replenished. This hotel is very convenient to Interstates 290 and 90. However, the highway noise at night was too much for me and I had trouble sleeping. The windows let in a lot of car noise and you have to run the AC if you want to drown it out. I would definitely stay here again but I would ask for a quiet room.
