Compared to other Holiday Inn Express locations, I was disappointed in this property. There was quite a bit of mold on the bathroom ceiling of the room that I was in, and the bathroom needed some TLC (missing grout, one cracked floor tile). The property had signs of deferred maintenance (missing lighting fixtures, parking lot lights out). The other person... More

Hotel is well appointed, may be due some upgrade on carpet, but location and overall appearance of the hotel is really good. Very good breakfast. Nice pool. Confortable bed, large suite with coffee pot, fridge and sink outside bathroom.

Check in was easy. They matched a price I had at another Holiday Inn Express! The place was clean, roomy and the room had a microwave and fridge. The staff was helpful and friendly. The hot breakfast was delicious! Check out was easy.

The location was perfect for me and was close to the express way. I thought the room was clean and comfortable (202). It had very little outside noise and has a park behind it. The staff were friendly but not intrusive. The breakfast was about average but well looked after by the staff.

This was a very clean and comfortable hotel. The staff was very friendly and I really appreciated having a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and extra sink in the room. The sheets and beds were cozy and the suite with the couch gave us the extra space this family of four really appreciated and enjoyed having. The pool was clean and... More

I stopped here for a quick one night stopover during a road trip. Staff at the checkin desk was friendly. The elevator and hallways had an unpleasant and strong odor. The room was clean but had a musty odor. Other than the odors, it was a good stay.

Checked into Holiday Inn Express very late, we called ahead to let them know we would be a late arrival, they were excellent,, Room was great, staff very friendly and the breakfast was very good. I would stay there again if I am in the Athens area.

Oftentimes we pet people have to settle for lesser quality chains that are a mixed bag, you never know what you are going to walk into. Not so with this Holiday Inn Express (HIE). The rooms were clean, modern, and comfortable. The bedding was the "sandwiched blanket/comforter" between two sheets which I prefer.....do not like the multi-user blanket hotels. The... More

We stayed at the Inn with a big group of 8th grade baseball boys and pets. Most people would be glad that they weren't staying there while we were there but from the outside dog park to the mostly noise proof pool room - we were able to swing under the radar. Holiday inn express is located next to a... More

The first room they gave us had a fridge with a very loud compressor that hummed and knocked. We asked to be moved to a different room. The fridge in the second room made even more noise so we requested another room. The fridge in the third room was just as bad and there was no way we would have... More
