We traveled to Athens, Tennessee, for our niece's wedding. The hotel was pretty new & very clean. We hung out in the nice comfortable lobby often, which made it extra nice for the family to gather & visit:) Fresh cookies in the entryway were a welcome treat as well as hot coffee available all day & evening:) The rooms were...

On a quick lay over after traveling from Reno NV all day on way to Virginia. Desk clerk very direct and short when answering questions regarding my Priority standing and AARP rates. Was not asking for anything special just trying to obtain clear answers.

Sabrina had everything ready when we checked in about 9:30 on a Friday night for just one night. She was friendly, courteous and professional. The room was very large, well furnished and spotlessly clean. There were plenty of plug-ins for our electronic devices and that is always a plus. This hotel is really quiet and we slept well. The breakfast... More

The hotel is very conveniently located right off the highway and close to all the best area dining options. The only drawback is almost all of the parking is in the rear of the hotel and creates a bit of a walk and juggling of keys to get in. The staff was very friendly though. It was nice to pull...

We have stayed here before and stopped because our granddaughter lives nearby. Marsha, the desk clerk was efficient and very personable. When we couldn't get on the internet, she came down to our room to help. She didn't have any luck and went to call the technical support. We had the internet within less than five minutes. The staff was... More

We stopped here for an overnight during a drive from Florida to Ohio. The rooms were nice and clean which was our most important requirement. The breakfast in the morning was the typical HIX fare with the cinnamon rolls being the favorite as usual.

Family of 4 at the end of a long family vacation. We decided to stop in Athens after a long day on I-75.

The Holiday Inn Express offers what you would expect from this version of their chain. Clean Rooms, nice amenities, and friendly staff that doesn't break the bank. Quality of the room was good, and I was able to secure a room towards the end of the hallway, away from the noisy areas. My only complaint is that the black out... More

I recently stayed in this hotel for a week with my disabled mother. Staff: helpful and accommodating. They worked overtime trying to help my mother with her needs related to her disability.
