I stay at HIE regularly, and have been at HIE Athens for a month now on business. I have to say that this is one of the best I've stayed at. From the friendly staff, to the cleanliness, and the happy hour you can't go wrong here. HIE Athens will be our go to when in town from now on.

Reviewed April 12, 2017

Stayed here on business. Not a whole lot in the area. Didn't see anything anywhere close to the quality of this place. Have stayed at several Holiday Inn Express locations but this one was on the top. By far the most spacious suites I've ever seen in one of these. I don't even know what the square footage was but...

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff was warm and friendly, and it was so nice to have snacks and libations in the lobby area (limited seating). Very clean and quiet. We awoke refreshed and ready to travel to our next destination.

My stay at this hotel was amazing! When you first walk in you are kindly greeted and also offered drinks and snacks. The table of food and drinks offered complimentary beers, water, sodas, and wine coolers. There were also chicken slider sandwiches to choose from as well. I especially enjoyed the indoor pool. The overall hotel was clean and well...

Stayed at this hotel with some friends for a girls outing. The staff was wonderful and accommodating! The housekeepers would ask how you were and carry on a conversation with you. The amenities were wonderful - the hot tub and pool (indoor) felt great after a long day. We did have to cut our visit short though because of bad...

This hotel features a manager's food spread in the lobby that is really great. It's free for all hotel guests and hits the spot when you're between meals. The free breakfasts are great. The hotel is located centrally to many stores and restaurants.

This was a great hotel. Very helpful staff. Breakfast was great. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Nice location. We were there for the Freshwater Fishery and hotel was not far from it. It is a also very close to downtown, which is really cute.

This is my second time in this hotel, the first time was a good experience so I decided to stay this second time.

Positives - We were heartily welcomed by the front desk staff. The evening manager's reception was a nice addition. Our room was on the third floor and was quiet. Negatives - The hotel does need some updating and some minor repairs. The breakfast was typical HIE fare. Dispite the negatives, the hotel was a bargain and well located.
