Moorpark, California
Reviewed 30 July 2015

Full points to the desk staff. Nothing but friendly and helpful. We had a big group that needed shuttle rides, and they were completely accommodating to us. The hotel is a bit tricky to get to. It's in a little pocket with a few other hotels. There are no restaurants easily accessible other than the one in the Best Western...

I had high expectations for this HI Express as I have stayed at many in the past. However, I was very underwhelmed by this hotel. For starters, the rooms are small, the wifi was so slow and connection was lost every two minutes, and the mini fridge barely kept anything cold (tip: do NOT purchase any frozen foods as they...

This place has been renovated since we last stayed 2 years ago. The lobby area was nice. Check-in was painless. Our rooms were in perfect condition, clean, spacious & very nice. We travel to Waltham periodically & will definitely stay here in the future. The price was great.

I'll leave aside the hassles of rooms being ready late etc., they were very busy last weekend and I would have been happy to cut them some slack if it weren't for the multiple flea bites I and my wife received during our stay. My wife, a physician, purposely didn't tell me she was getting bitten because she didn't want...

I would like to give a nice compliment to Maria the Hispanic lady who works in the kitchen. My mom spilled coffee and she came right away to clean the spill. Being a housekeeping supervisor myself responding quickly to spills eliminates falls and ensures public safety. Well done Maria! Thank you.

This location is perhaps the overall best value in Waltham. Over the last year they renovated the common areas, hallways, fitness center, lobby and the breakfast area. The rooms are in very good shape and the bedding is good quality as required by the IHG Standards. I have stayed here for about 75 nights so far in 2015 and have...

We were thrilled with our stay. As soon as we walked into the hotel, we were greeted with smiles from the front desk staff who quickly and professionally checked us in. The newly renovated lobby and breakfast room are gorgeous - bright and cheerful. And our room was immaculate. We left before breakfast was served but the hostess, Maria, offered...

The service at this Holiday Inn Express is exceptional. From making a phone call to the hotel to come in a night early to directions to mass transportation the staff was very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the Boston area and doesn't want to stay at an expensive hotel downtown

A very nice, clean hotel. Location was right off the interstate and close to several of the sites we wanted to visit. Lexington and Concord are just up the freeway a short drive. Breakfast staff(Maria) did a great job of being helpful and friendly.

We have had stays here over many years. They appear to have redone the first floor and it looks fresh and new. Stacks of local papers and bowls of mints show they care about guest comfort. Our room was typical HI Express, which is to say clean and functional. This hotel is located on a busy intersection and next to...
