Once upon a time it was a cool Ramada in 1970's. It has new life as HI Express. For an old hotel, it's not bad. But as a HI Express, it's sub-par. The staff was great, b'fast was OK, but the place is just too old with too many functional issues. Slow tiny elevator, poor HVAC, slow drain lines in... More

The room was large and clean. The breakfast was better than usual hotel complementary breakfast. I was concerned with parking as there is public housing across the street and I saw a lot of police activity over there. The front desk staff was very friendly. I would stay here again.

We stayed here for one night to take our UGA student out on the town for his birthday. At $100/ night we thought it was a reasonable rate for a night in a hotel vs staying at his apartment. We checked in before meeting for dinner and dropped off our overnight bags. Front desk clerk advised us of a required... More

We stay in alot of places and alot of Holiday Inn express hotels because they are consistent. But this one exceeded that with a better breakfast, friendly staff and great rate.

This Holiday Inn Express was older but remodeled and everything up to date. I had just forgotten how small older hotel rooms were. The bathroom was the smallest I have seen in YEARS. Room was small but comfortable. Bed was comfortable. Motel was clean. The worst wifi I have ever attempted to use in a hotel. Practically impossible to get... More

Stayed for 2 nights for my sons graduation. They accommodated me coming in late with my daughter coming in early. Breakfast was great (more than I ever expected) and staff did everything we asked while smiling the whole time. Had a crying 2 yr old and they even opened up the juice bar to give him something to drink. I... More

The negatives are poor WiFi. Very slow and drops out. Breakfast is the usual fare. The room was comfortable, small for king size but large enough. Bathroom very small but adequate. The floor tiles could use replacement. Room 307 was quiet except for hearing a few doors closing at bedtime. Heat was nice and cozy. Good tv selections. A very... More

This hotel has some miles on it, however, is clean and well run. Unlike many hotels that age, this property has been kept up. Nicely appointed rooms with enough spots to charge your stuff, a mini fridge and coffee maker. Staff is superb - attentive and friendly. Great location and you can easily walk downtown. Plenty of parking (free). Worth... More
