We needed a hotel near the downtown area and this fit the profile. Many great restaurants and local music venues within walking distance!! The college student at the front desk was very helpful and checked us in very quickly. The hotel is old, the bathroom is tiny, the rooms are not sound insulated (you can hear everything going on in... More

Great price, very clean, best Holiday Inn breakfast. Just plain perfect. Bed was comfortable, pillows very good. Check in and out was a breeze. Parking lot very spacious and easy to use. I would stay again

We feel we know what to expect from a one-night stay at a Holiday Inn Express, and this one delivered all the usual elements -- very clean spacious room, free wifi, included breakfast -- at a better than usual price. The staff were friendly and helpful. In addition, even though we got to breakfast at the last minute choices were... More

I'm a budget traveller. I noticed this hotel had a decent rating through TripAdvisor, so I booked it for 2 days (New Years weekend). The first room I received had a dirty bathroom. I did not overreact; simply called the front desk to request someone to come in and clean and remove the dirty towel. After returning from dinner (2... More

This place is kind of dated. The rooms were clean and the breakfast was ok but, it was FREE. So no complaints. Most of the staff was awesome. The hotel is in walking distance of the college and downtown.The room did have a small fridge which is always great! We were here for my son's soccer tournament and we NEEDED... More

I have stayed in this hotel a couple times when I come to Athens and it was great. However, my most recent stay was just awful. The daily rate was $159.00, which didn't include taxes. For this price, the red carpet should be pulled out. I was told tge price increased due to some events in town. The breakfast was... More

A poor hotel that does not deserve to have the Holiday Inn flag. Poor checkin, poor checkout and poor all in the middle. The room was claustrophobic with a window view to a hill 15 feet higher and a tiny 24" bathroom door and a bathroom that looks like an airplane bath minus the bathtub. Breakfast poorly served. The hotel... More

There isn't frankly anything which stands out about this hotel. It is exactly what you might expect from the hotel chain i.e. the same standard delivered in many locations. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful to us. They were also very pleasant and welcoming to our 3 year old daughter. Plenty of free parking. Fair free WIFI access.... More

This hotel is very clean and quiet and in a good central location. BUT. The mini-fridge in the room clicked and tapped in an irregular pattern all. night. long. The bathroom is tiny and has no exhaust fan so got very steamy and foggy after my shower. There was only one bar of soap for both tub and shower, so... More

It's a Holiday Inn Express located in an older building that was, for years, a Holiday Inn. It's a college town hotel and it's a bit worn, but it works. I've stayed in worse places that cost far more. They do allow dogs on the first floor and the walking area is a bit small, but it is an into... More
