Very clean & fresh place. Room was comfortable. First front desk staff person I encountered could have been more pleasant but the next day person was very nice. Also, took the kids to the pool right after we checked in and it was badly in need of being vacuumed...& still the same the next morning. Besides those couple issues, everything... More

I am a platinum club member, so we stay in Holiday Inn Express exclusively. This one is great! It has all the normal good things found in a normal HIE: comfy beds, pillows and sheets, nice breakfast, nice shower, excellent WIFI, pool, and fitness center etc. Our room was large and very quiet, and there were outlets everywhere! We charged... More

We stayed one night, and I wish we could stay longer. This is a great place for families. Breakfast is great and the pool is very well-maintained. The pool hours are convenient as well. Clerks were friendly and noted our IHG awards club points, giving us all the information in writing. The room was huge, furniture was very neat and... More

The Holiday Inn Express on the I 75 in Athens, Tennessee is everything you need for a stopover on your travel south or north. The hotel is immediately off the highway, great access to both the highway and to the town of Athens, which is great for those who need groceries or a Starbucks fix. The hotel staff is very... More

Very happy with our choice after hours on the road. Check in was fast and very helpful staff pointed out easy-access parking for our Fifth Wheel just across the street. Great decor in a very clean, spacious and comfortable room. Nice pool and the hot tub was the perfect temp to relax. Breakfast had a very good selection of hot... More

Great Bldg. good location near I-75, staff very friendly, lobby and room decorated recently. Everything worked fine. I left before breakfast, but it was free had I had time. I thought $125. was high, the hotel's next door and at that exit were advertising room's 50. But I was in route to funeral.

My family and I stayed here on January 19th. Check-in was fast and as a Preferred Elite member we received an upgrade to a suite which added to the comfort of staying. My grandson and I enjoyed the swimming pool, which was on the cool side for me....possibly the heater was on a timer to conserve energy? The hot tub... More

Had a quite comfortable one-night stay on our way home from Florida. The highlight was chatting with Jean at breakfast! Sweetest lady you could meet! She kept that breakfast bar stocked and clean as well as chatted with guests and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. It was like you were visiting her in her own home. We drive... More

We were traveling back to Michigan from Florida and found the pool and hot tub to be very refreshing. The room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast selection in the morning knocked our socks off. The desk staff were very courteous and helpful. Thank you!
