Very nice hotel with friendly and courteous staff. We stayed here on our way home from a work trip/vacation and it was conveniently located off the expressway. Near to restaurants, which was a plus after driving all day, we didn't need to venture far for dinner.

I am an alumni of ohio u and this was my first time staying in a hotel here since I graduated. I stayed here on rewards points and the check in staff thanked me for my loyalty and were great. They even recommended a few cab choices for us. They told us to go with green cab, but honestly I'd... More

Stayed one night. Friendly check in. The room was good, plenty of parking. Located on same site as Applebee’s and CVS. We headed into the centre of Athens, short drive away. Getting back was a mission though as there was a University football match on and was the eve of memorial day so the town was packed with young drinkers!... More

We stayed a total of about 10 days working in town and both visits were very enjoyable. The staff was very courteous and our room was very nice. My only complaint (and I've never seen this before in any hotel) is that the TV is on some type of a timer because it would somehow end up back on channel... More

We stayed here in early October as a stopover on a long trip. We were traveling with our dog and the hotel has pet friendly rooms. Our room was fairly typical of a Holiday Inn Express, but it was also very clean, quite large and very comfortable. Very convenient location to the highway. This would be a great hotel for... More

I found the HI Express to be a good play to stay during my trip to Athens Ohio. It is easy to find, right off the highway, but I did not notice too much traffic noise. Pulling up to the front door, the hotel looks good from the outside. It is pretty much the typical HIE that I have come... More

I booked a room here in March of 2015 for Homecoming weekend in October 2015. While the room price was steep for one night in Athens, Ohio ($250), it was understandable because it was Homecoming weekend. I feel like we still got good value out of the night and it was nice that there was no minimum night stay (we... More

Agree with another reviewer. I have stayed here at least 10 times in the past several years. I have always been placed the room was clean, the staff were friendly and pleasant, and the parking lot was well lit. I have never had a complaint.

This is a very neat and clean Holiday Inn. We traveled all day and stopped for the night. The room was very spacious. Nice bathrooms with plenty of space. The rooms were very clean. The breakfast in the morning was fabulous. A great start to your day to finish a long drive.
