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.

It was the usual for Holiday Inn: the room was good sized and the bathroom was well stocked with toiletries. Everything was clean and tidy. The view from the rooms on the back side is of the dog park, the community park, and the hillsides across the river - much nicer than the view from the front of the backsides... More

This is a hotel in a college town. .it IS a Holiday Inn and has an indoor pool. That being said it could have been cleaner. The mold in the bathroom and the faint odor of stagnant air would have been reported to the front desk had we not gotten in really late. It was a busy week in Athens... More

The hotel itself has a bad smell through out, something like mold. The beds at this hotel weren't as uncomfortable as others. The television didn't have a signal, so we couldn't use it. Room was on the small side and kind of uncomfortable.The location is okay. I'm not sure I'd stay here again.

This hotel is clean and well-kept. The room was spacious and all amenities functioned properly. There is a free breakfast. Easy access to and from the expressway. I would recommend this property to other travelers.

This is a typically good HIE. Clean, good location, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. It is a good value. It is a few hundred feet from the walk/bike trail and beside the city pool so it is convenient for University business as well as recreational activities.

We enjoyed our 1 night stay. In fact it was as nice as the Holiday Inn we stayed at in Winchester, Virginia the previous night! Good sized beds usual facilities. Applebee's was within easy walking distance which was a bonus.

I have stayed at this hotel while traveling multiple times. This hotel allows pets which is a plus when traveling with them. The property is clean and the rooms are modern and comfortable with bed, mini fridge, microwave and HDTV. Also the staff here is always friendly. I needed a recommendation for a place to eat and the nice lady... More
