We decided at the last minute to take a short trip, just to get away for a night. We randomly picked the Huntsville, Athens area. We chose the Holiday Inn Express after looking at Trip Advisor. We were so glad we did. From check in to check out we were pleasantly surprised. The Desk clerks were very accommodating and friendly.... More

Had a completely adequate stay at the Holiday Inn on a road trip. The staff is pleasant. The rooms clean. It is very close to the interstate - being right off the exit. The breakfast is included and has a diverse set of options to eat. Would recommend if need a place to rest on a road trip..

Stayed at this hotel several times as a stopping point on our way to Florida. It's conveniently located between I-65 and hiway 31 and a block off of hiway 72 which is the main E-W road. Many inexpensive restaurants nearby. The place is always clean and the staff will go out of their way to make you feel welcomed. Almost... More

Everything about this place is an average Holiday Inn Express. That doesn't make it bad but nothing stands out about it either. Breakfast was ok except for some strange reason the had the usual omelets, sausage, biscuits, But No Gravy. That's a staple of breakfast. I asked if they had it or were just out and was told they didn't... More

We always have a solid experience at Holiday Inn Express and this one delivered the courteous service, clean facility, and comfortable room that we expected. What really made the difference this time was the wonderful lady who was working the breakfast area on Sunday, Dec. 20th. Not only was everything fully stocked and ready for guests, but she made a...

It was the best. The people were great, especially the hostess in the breakfast area. My Dad uses a walker and she got his plate fixed and coffee delivered. The beds were the best in any hotel, and I travel a lot. Thanks, we will be back.

Stopped at the Holiday Inn trying to get out of the rain from Hurricane Joaquin while on the third week of a month long road trip. The king size bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in (and I have a Sleep Number at home, so I'm pretty picky about beds!) with pillows o'plenty! Hotel staff was so... More

The staff was friendly and professional. The room was spotless and very comfortable. The breakfast was good and the staff in the dining room were very friendly. We didn't get to use the pool or the gym but they look very nice. We had no worries at all about security. We would definitely stay again.

We came to stay here because our Florida vacation was cut short due to storms. We were happy to find a friendly staff, clean hotel, great pool and even free drinks and snacks. We also left some stuff in our room and they shipped it to us. Fantastic experience after a disappointing vacation!

The carpet in our room was disgustingly filthy... We travel, year round, almost every week, around the world and the U.S... This was the grossest, stickiest carpet, ever for a hotel in this range of ratings... We stay with IHG and Holiday Inns, easily monthly... BUT, this, alone, is a reason never to return, here.
