Holiday Inn Express Auburn

Reviewed May 14, 2006

This was my second visit within a month. The hotel has a clean and new feel to it. Rooms are comfortable and well appointed. However, the staff leaves much to be desired. I asked for a suggestion for a place to eat and got a look like it was the most bizarre request he's ever heard. After a few seconds he came up with a response but clearly was not comfortable with it. (It turns out the suggested restaurant advertizes on the room keycard.) Later in the evening I could not sign on to the internet (free high speed access) and the reply was "I can't help you no one else has called with a problem". In the end I connected via the phone line (free local calls). Overall, it's a good choice but they get one more shot at better staff. There are 4 other hotels within 1 mile, all of which would be happy to take my money.

Holiday Inn Express in Auburn is new, clean, staffed with eager beavers, and has a average or better free breakfast. It is about 10 driving minutes from the DCU Center and right off the I-90 and I-290 expressways.

The only problem is finding the place. It is right off Southbridge Street, right next to the I-290 route. But Johnson Street is not obvious and the Holiday Inn Express sign is small and on a signboard containing other businesses. It is right next to the Picadilley Pub and Restaurant, which is easy to see and a very good place to eat.

We paid $93.75 total for two senior citizens in a King Sized bed for one night.

We recommend the place.

Stayed here one night while travelling to Boston with some high school students. Somewhat isolated and difficult to find, but very clean. If it's not new it's close to it or kept in immaculate condition. Best hotel we stayed in over 8 days and 5 hotels - also most expensive at $75-85 a night. Well-appointed rooms included a mini-fridge and microwave. Complimentary breakfast a slight cut above the rest. Friendly and helpful staff was ready for our arrival. You will be pleased with the decor and cleanliness of this site.

We stayed here for one night, in a room with a king-sized bed. The hotel is very new and sparkling clean. Bathroom was large, spacious, very clean.

Excellent continental breakfast (at least on Saturday), had warm cinnamon roles, french toast, bagels, muffins, cereal, assorted juices, hot coffee and tea, and whole fruit. No room service given it is an express inn, but there was a "pantry" where you could buy microwaveable food if you got the urge for a midnight snack. And there was a refrigerator and microwave in every room, which was convenient.

Not much food or entertainment immediately adjacent to the hotel, but restaurants and such are a short drive away (we went to an Outback Steakhouse about a mile away).

It also has a small fitness room and a heated indoor hot tub which was big enough to fit 8 people.

Also, they offer free internet, and you can check out an ethernet cable from the front desk. A small business center holds a computer that you can use internet on for free, and also a printer and fax occupy the room - I think this is 24 hour access, as you use your room key to get in.

This is a top-notch Holiday Inn Express...from the SUPER staff to the GREAT rooms, we cannot wait to return on our next visit to the area.

It's very clean throughout, easy parking, and the rooms are very new.

The staff went above and beyond in every aspect.

We would have NO HESITATION to stay here again. And again. And again.
