I started there for a graduation for 1 night. It's convenient...just off the highway, close to restaurants, and a short drive to OU. The room was a good size as was the bathroom. The bed was comfortable firm but not hard. I slept really well. The breakfast was good...though it was a bit crowded (The hotel was sold out due... More

You read that right. Despite the high cost, thin towels and bargain... More

We were greeted by a friendly and efficient staff who welomed us and our two big dogs with open arms. Pet rooms are available, check for details. The city park with a designated off leash dog park is located behind the hotel! Clean modern rooms, nice pool, daily newspapers, good breakfast. Located just off the freeway with an Applebees and...

We stayed at this hotel last minute and it was great! Very clean room, and bathroom. I was very pleasantly surprised at how comfortable our room was. They only charged us an extra $15.00 for our dog which I felt was very reasonable. We will definitely be back if we are in need of a hotel and driving through this... More

Nice hotel with clean rooms and really good breakfast. Pet fee just $15. Staff really nice and helpful. Nice dog park next door and restaurants all around the area. Just on the freeway exit... I would definitely stay here again!

We stayed here on a college visit trip while visiting Ohio University. The place was very clean and I loved the choice in types of pillows! Also it is pet-friendly and there is a dog park (converted from a baseball field) right behind the hotel, what a great surprise!

We have stayed here a couple of times with my daughter's equestrian team. Two nights in 2013 and 1 night in December 2014. Both times we had good experiences. The staff was friendly, helpful and efficient. The rooms were clean and comfortable. A continental breakfast is included and it was good consisting of eggs, biscuits, sausage, waffles, etc. The first... More

When I visit Athens, Ohio, I almost always stay at the Holiday Inn Express. It's a short cab ride away from the uptown area and lots of stuff to do. The staff is also very friendly and makes your stay as easy as possible.
