Convenient location, particularly in relation to Emory University. Rooms were clean. Manager's Special each night was very generous. The beds and linens could use updating. The front desk staff members were very kind and helpful.

First, let me start by saying that our thoughts are with your fiancé’s mother. Situations such as this are never easy and having to deal with the issues you experienced at our hotel surely did not help matters. I would like to speak to you to get further details on which member of our staff you spoke with so that... More

Staying 100+ nights a year in hotels, I get to deal with a great variety of desk staff. In a telephone call for information, I found the person that claimed to be the front desk manager falsely friendly and extremely unhelpful in attempts to get information about rates. Aloof would be a good term to use.

The Holiday Inn Express at Atlanta-Emory University was a great place to stay for the night. Located just outside of the city, this hotel has very affordable rates, comfortable rooms, and is very accessible to both downtown attractions and local restaurants. We ate dinner at a local restaurant and then came back and played in the indoor pool. They also... More

We were visiting family and wanted to be near Emory University. This is close and in a safe location. It's not a brand new property but looks well maintained and had a great air conditioner which is important in Atlanta in the summertime. The checkin staff was great and we had a good night. We will stay there again.

Our room was not ready when we arrived after check in time. The room was in need of rehab as evidenced by dirty wood work, chipped tub and peeling paint on ceiling. Breakfast was average served on styrofoam. Hotel well located and staff very pleasant. Stayed June 2014

Marred by too many small issues: during 7 night stay needed new room keys at least three times; fitness center equipment usually did not work; TV remote did not work for about 24 hours; weak breakfast offering. Otherwise, convenient to Emory, large clean room, elevator, etc.

We stayed here for two nights while visiting Emory's campus. Overall, the hotel is very average. Our room had an older feel to it, and our bed had a slight sag towards the middle -- nothing I would complain about, but our room could use updating. On the more positive side, the hotel was very clean and all the staff... More
