We were having a family gathering on Friday night at JackieO's which burnt down. We called the Holiday in at last notice to ask about there comf room but it was booked. They suggested the breakfast... More

I was in town for one night on a business trip, and my stay at this hotel could not have been better. The check in was quick and easy...and I somehow ended up as the "Guest of the Day", which scored me a free T-shirt! I got to the room, and for a moderately priced hotel, it was perfect. The... More

We tried a new way to drive from NC to Michigan and avoid the Ohio Turnpike. Athens, Ohio is very nice and I loved the Ohio University campus. This hotel is quite nice to stay for the night or for a weekend. Friendly staff, good breakfast, OK fitness room.

This is a nice place. The staff is great and the hotel is clean. Just across the parking lot is a CVS and an Applebee's. The breakfast at the hotel is very nice as well. I would definitely stay here again.

I called a few months ago to reserve a room, trying to get prepared for my son's graduation in May 2015. The young man I spoke to told me he could not reserve a room for me, at this time, that Holiday Inn Express was not taking reservations at the time for that date, that I had requested. He told...

This hotel was nice and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed one night and we enjoyed our stay there. I recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area. There are restaurants nearby and Ohio University is only about 1 mile away.

I had booked my room through a referral website and to make a long story short, the Holiday Inn Express went above and beyond the call of duty to help secure a room for me even though they had done nothing wrong. The hotel itself is clean and attractive, the rooms are spacious and the staff is amazing. Upon returning... More

Our second floor room faced the hotel's front entrance, overlooking the parking lot. The grounds, common areas and hallways were very clean. The staff was polite, attentive and allowed us to carry out breakfast much earlier than they began serving. We had requested extra towels and feather pillows. All awaited our check-in. Many thanks for a good night's rest.

Athens is a school town and I think this is the best hotel. Nice and generally clean. I wish they had better house keeping in the public space areas. Sometimes it feels like a dorm. Breakfast is okay, nothing special. I was expecting more organic choices as it is in a rural setting. Nice staff and excellent internet. Close to... More

We visited Athens to attend the wedding of a relative. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. The hotel staff was very accommodating and helpful. We arrived very early, way before the 3:00 check in, and they were able to facilitate an early check in so we could get ready for the wedding that was taking place at 3:00 that... More
