If you have no other option in Worcester, inevitably you may choose the HI Express Worcester but be forewarned that this property is an absolutely atrocious value. For close to $200/night one has to deal with terribly air conditioning, tawdry carpets, Painfully deficient breakfast and a hapless staff. Clearly IHG needs to audit this property and it’s franchisee.

I'll start by saying that the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is decently nice, but my room specifically could use some work. The lampshade on my bedside lamp was completely broken and would not stay upright. There was also a pile of loose wires underneath the TV stand. The rooms have high ceilings, which is actually pretty nice, but it can make adjusting the curtains quite difficult. Toiletries were a little bare (1 shampoo bottle and 2 lotion bottles for some reason). Vending machine was also out of bottled water and I would not drink tap water in Worcester. However, the location is decent as it's right in the middle of downtown.

Understaffed. I could tell they were stressed because they were less than polite. The hotel is flat out dirty. I don’t think it’s seen a vacuum in months. Our room hand toilet paper on the floor and toothpaste on the wall. It was apparent he room was not thoroughly cleaned. If you you want a clean comfortable room this is not the place for you.

Being my first time visiting Worcester, I expected more out of this hotel for the price. First night, all lights and microwave were disconnected plus the AC didn’t work, so I was moved to a different room, not too much trouble, but the shower in the bathroom is located on the side of the bathtub wall, even though is with a house that you could move around, it’s still very annoying cause I had to use my towels to dry my floor after I finished taking a shower cause there was a water flood when I came out of the tub. When I went to the front desk and asked Nathaniel (Friday afternoon) for more towels,garbage bags and toilette paper cause I had no extra toilette paper in the room and no extra garbage bags. Not only he seemed bother by my request but he was trying to justify why was the shower hose placed on the wrong side of the wall?!?! Instead of apologizing for my inconvenience of having to dry the floor in the middle of the night! He gave me one extra toilette paper and one garbage bag!! I said so “I’ll have to come back to get more?” He said “that should be enough till you leave” Ummm I’m not sure why was I treated like this, but I understand that this place is used as a social service shelter, but not everyone that’s here is in that situation!! Ps. The Thursday night (6/24/2021) manager (beautiful short long haired girl) is amazing and deserves a raise!!! She addressed my needs very effectively and kindly!!

First, please know that the staff is very kind and doing the best they can under the circumstances. The local homelss are being placed here by the State. This would be fine except many non paying guests are breaking the rules and do not care. Smoking in rooms, smoking pot in hallways. Loud, etc. I witnessed someone who literally looked like she was going through withdrawals in the elevator (shaking uncontrollably) . Only recieved housekeeping service for 1/2 of my stay with no explanation. I was not comfortable leaving my room especially the evening when I would need to go to my car. People gather in small groups outside the hotel . This is ruining what appeared to be a nice hotel pre Covid. I feel so bad for the staff and owners but I can never ever do this again.
