Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HMCMF perfect after flying into Boston
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.

MY HUSBAND AND I CAME TO AREA DUE TO A
SERIOUS HEALTH PROBLEM WITH A REALATIVE IN HOSPICE. WHEN WE TOLD THE YOUNG MAN WHO
CHECKED US IN HE WAS EXTREMELY COMPASSIONATE AND SAID IF THERE WAS ANYTHING AT ALL THE STAFF COULD DO TO HELP
MAKE OUR STAY EASIER OR BE OF ANY HELP PLEASE LET HIM KNOW. HE MEANT IT. A TRULY CARING PERSON.
WE FOUND THE HOTEL QUIET DISPITE THE FACT THAT IT WAS QUITE FULL AND THE BEDS WERE
VERY COMFORTABLE AS WELL AS VERY NICE PILLOWS. EVERYTHING WAS CLEAN.
BREAKFAST WAS VERY GOOD.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SEP455 My favorite place to stay
When traveling for business I always try to stay at HIE's because of their consistent high quality hotels and Auburn gets my 5-star rating. The hotel is extremely well kept, very clean rooms that are quiet and comphy, with excellent breakfast choices. Also, being a rewards member, I received a free room upgrade!

This property worked well for us.
It was clean, secure, and the room was spacious.
I would definitely choose this hotel again.
The drains in the bathroom were slow. I should have mentioned it to the staff, but I did not.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sleerost Adequately comfortable and good Internet for Work
The general, overall experience was good. Would recommend this Auburn MA location to anyone who is not looking for luxury; comfortable is what you get. The staff were all attentive to everyone's needs as evidenced by the morning staff keeping the breakfast bar up to date and open beyond posted stop time.
There was no pool; a spa or hot tub was available. It was a little too cold to my liking based on other hotels over the years. Also, it was "sudsy" when the jets were activated and darn near spilled over the top edge of the spa.
Generally, if looking for an average experience without too many frills, Holiday Inn Express in Auburn MA would be a good location; especially in the summer (though I was there in the Winter) when there are so many outdoors things to do in the area.

Staff is very nice.
Rooms are average clean, and location is good for access to Worcester.
Many restaurants nearby.
Some hotel rooms are showing signs of wear, typical things.
Rooms are not super-quiet, so a "bad neighbor" can be noticed. I've stayed there several times, though, and rarely have had anything out of the ordinary in terms of noise.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cactus Ma Nice clean basic room
Our son was visiting Worcester Poly Tech , so we wanted something close, but not too close. This was a quick 10 minute trip from the campus. Very easy access both on and off the highway. Quite close to the highway, but our room was on the "back side" and we did not notice a lot of traffic noise. Room was fairly large. Bathroom was good sized. Both were very clean. Very basic furniture. Two beds, one sitting chair, desk and bureau with a clothes closet attached. Heating and cooling worked well. Front desk staff was very friendly and, when asked, offered information about restaurants close by. We chose Bentleys which offers a 10% food discount when you show them your room key. It is close enough to walk, but there was bad snowstorm that evening and there were no cleared sidewalks so we drove the short distance. The elevator placement just seemed a bit odd to me, sort of in a regular narrow hallway and not a more expanded "mini lobby" type set up. Nothing wrong with that, just seemed odd. I would go there again if we were in the Worcester area.

The room exceeded my expectation, there was a microwave and fridge I didn't use them because it was a short stay. However, the coffee maker came in handy, I was able to make a cup of tea to relax in front of the TV after a long day.

Fran who runs the breakfast area is terrific! It feels like you are having breakfast with your best friend. If you have any special food requests, Fran will get it for you (within reason). It is a nice clean well maintained hotel that will draw you back for another stay. A good value for the business or pleasure traveler.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disgruntled Traveler Beware if using a debit card to pay for your stay here!
I had stayed here before and loved it. Unfortunately, on my last trip I needed to pay with my debit card. I expected that they would put a hold on my account for some amount over the estimated cost of my stay - standard procedure for many businesses. However, this hotel put such a large hold on my account (more than 2x the final cost of my stay) that I then had very limited funds to pay for anything else (like gas & food). To make matters worse, they did not release the hold until several days after my stay had ended and well after they had already charged my account for the final amount. So, because of this (my bill was paid but the hold was still on my account), I had two other unrelated payments that suffered from insufficient funds and I incurred fees from my bank and the other payment recipients. I was so ANGRY! So BEWARE if you plan to use a debit card here.
I stayed at another Holiday Inn the next day in another town that actually had a more expensive rate but the hold they put on my debit card was much more reasonable. They also released the hold on my account before this hotel did even though my stay there came after this one.
