We traveled from out of state for a funeral. Our stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Athens. The staff were super friendly and very helpful. It was nice to be showered with Southern Hospitality. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone traveling in East Texas.

We checked in just before 10pm and Kimber met us with a smiling face and cheerful conversation. I asked curiously if I smelled cookies and was met with "chocolate chip, just baked them, let me get some for you." Uh...yes please!! Clean room, seems like a very new property and the staff was over the top excellent!

Spring Break with the grand kids, and the grand kids loved the hotel's indoor pool. After attending the Fly Fish Texas 2014, we were very happy that we were able to spend Saturday night at the Holiday Inn Express in Athens, TX. From the moment we checked in, the hotel staff made us feel right at home. We were pleased... More

After spending the weekend in Canton for First Monday Trade Days, we started home Sunday and experienced a winter storm with heavy sleet and temp around 27 degrees. We stopped in Athens to try to knock some of the ice from the windshield, and I inquired about places to stay. We were so lucky to find the Holiday Inn Express.... More

Great Staff. They accommodated our every need. Clean rooms and grounds. Great breakfast. Will stay here again. Close to all restaurants and Wally World. We were in town to go to Trade Days in Canton, It was just a short drive and getting around Athens was much easier than Canton.

This hotel was first class from the welcome at the door to the farewell. Rooms are very nice a spacious. I had no problem at all with my bed and my pillows were as soft as you might expect from a quality Holiday Inn. This hotel will restore your faith in the Holiday Inn name brand. A great stay and...

The beds were slanted and all springs. Two in a bed was impossible. I stayed two nights in different rooms but beds were equally bad. The staff was very nice, however, and breakfast was good. This is probably the best place in Athens so I will continue to stay here but plan on a restless night.

Just recently stayed for our 2nd Annual October First Monday Girls trip. The staff was quick to greet us and make us feel welcomed. Everything was clean and the goodies at the end of a long day was quite a nice surprise. Already booked for next year!
