I always do my own cleanliness check (for insects, etc) and was pleased to find no traces. The water... More

Good location at ramp of I-495. Plenty of cheap restaurants and fast food places nearby. Rooms are ok. Some have fridges. A bit jaded. Noise from corridors, from both guests and staff, e.g. maintenance guys woke me up talking loudly outside my room. No room safes. Fairly clean, but hairs in bath tub. Breakfast included, breakfast staff super friendly, though... More

Spent one night during a big snowstorm. Facilities staff shoveled path to my vehicle and cleared the snow from the car. Very clean and comfortable room at a good value. Would recommend to anyone staying in the North Andover area.

Had been considering moving usual hotels from Hamtpon Inn chain to Holiday Inn Express. However this stay leaves me questioning standards maintained by HI Express. King room had only bed and desk chair. No where else to sit. Was plenty of room for sofa or easy chair. Why not provide? Also, one plug on desk for charging things. Not acceptable.... More

I only stayed one night here for business. I loved having a Dunkin' right outside the hotel but the driveway was a little confusing as it is the same one as Dunkin/Denny's. The business center was very helpful as I needed to print some documents that I had forgotten to bring with me. The room seemed clean but smelled musty.... More

I would never stay here again. It was an awful experience. Dirty rooms, they booked us the wrong room, and gave me a hard time about it. The front desk people were very nice but the manager Molly was rude and not very understanding. Take your money and go to a Marriott!
