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

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express while attending a meeting at Emory and it was a good choice. The bed was very comfortable providing me with a wonderful and restful nights sleep. Everyone was very nice and helpful. I will stay here again if I am back in the area.

I booked this HIE because it had an indoor pool. Upon check in the front desk staff told us the pool hours. My children had really been looking forward to swimming. We got down to the pool only to find it was drained of all water. There was a sign on the door that said it was closed for renovations.... More

We were in Decatur on 11/2/13 and stayed at the HI Express. We stayed here several years ago and the hotel is still clean. Surely they must have updated it. It was quiet, the staff was nice, and we slept well. I would choose it again. The free breakfast was good.

My family booked two rooms at the last minute due to my fathers emergency and very serious surgery due to cancer. There was a computer glitch at check in with our reservation but the staff and management got the situation resolved and were so easy and pleasant to work with. Our stay ended up being 10 days as we needed... More

The staff is genuinly happy to help with restaurant suggestions and they welcome you the minute you walk in the door. Although, I will warn you that if you try to contact any of the delivery restaurants, you... More

Dear TheCarter1, I understand when coping with insurmountable circumstances words can be easily lost in translation. Nonetheless, I am dejected to learn that you perceived my feedback as uncaring and unsympathetic. Please understand, my inability to waive the fee was directly related to the information you initially provided. It was not until you received my explanation and we discussed the... More

The breakfast was decent. The room was excellent, very comfortable bed. The staff was terrific. The location was okay. Some decent food options within walking distance. That left turn out of the parking lot to get to Emory, though... that was painful. The WiFi was unacceptably slow. As a business traveler, I'm a slave to a decent broadband connection. This... More

The hotel is clean with large rooms and very courteous and helpful staff. They serve a full breakfast and have a welcoming happy hour. Three couples traveled from Florida and stayed there three nights and all had the same great service. We plan on staying at the same hotel next year while in Decatur.

One of the best things about this hotel is it's location in walking distance to several outdoor shopping corners. Rooms are comfortable and the staff was great. Breakfast options varied, biscuits were hard and inedible and eggs were cold (first thing in the AM). Sweet rolls were good. Luckily there is a McDonald's 1 block away. We'd stay here again.
