Great hotel for business and families in the college town. Your expectations will be met with this Holiday Inn reservation. Easy walk to the AppleBee's is nice convenience. If you have to take the bus from the airport the hotel is a block from the Athens stop.

Our party of 5 stayed overnight in a suite with two queens and one pull out sofa. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was very good. The room was smaller than the HI Express suite we stayed in the previous night, but that room was huge.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay after a long and tiring day at Homecoming activities. The room was clean and fresh. It appeared to have been fairly recently remodeled. The bed was comfortable, but the pillows were a bit lumpy. The complimentary breakfast was very good. A nice variety was offered. I will definitely consider this for another stay... More

Have stayed at most of the hotels on this campus over the years. Definitely a great hotel for the money. This place always exceeds our expectations. Great pool and well kept. The lobby smells so nice. All the staff are quite accommodating.

This hotel had wonderful service and the room was very cozy. It had granite counter tops with plenty of room to apply makeup and get ready for the day. The hotel was quiet and the bed was very comfortable.
