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.

This was our second time staying there while on a long road trip. Consistently excellent. Hotel and rooms were spotless. New decor. Good breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. Close to the highway also.

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!

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.
