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. There are several hotels in the area but we took one look at the Holiday Inn Express and pronounced it to be the one. Great choice for us. Right off the exit and located close to plenty... More

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. When they were briefly unable to find a component to make the pool chair lift work, they gave us a free nights stay. The lady who was serving... More

I travel to Athens about 4 times a year on business; this is probably the best hotel in town, but don't get too excited. It is clean, right off I-75 and Ruby Tuesday is right across the street. But lately the rates have increased, and these are times of minimal inflation. The hotel is tired, and increasingly appears to be... More

I had driven for 14 hours from Florida on my way home to Cincinnati and I couldn't drive any further. So lucky for me there was a Holiday Inn Express in Athens, very convenient, right off the expressway. It was past Midnight but they were happy to see me and found me a perfect room with a King Bed.

Nice room-big and clean-well appointed. Microwave didn't want to work- maybe us. Soft sheets compared to others on this trip.Spa and pool were enjoyed on cold evening. No apparent deals offered but not bargain hunting. Got our money's worth.

Traveling through Tennessee we missed our Clevland exit and I'm glad we did. Stopped at the Holiday Inn Express right off the interstate in Athens TN . Checked right into a very clean spacious room. Friendly staff and free hot breakfast.
