The location is excellent, less than a mile to Emory Hospital. Staff is very courteous. Breakfast area was always clean and there was a good selection of breakfast items. Our room had good lighting and the bed was as comfortable as other Holiday Inns we stay in. Housekeeping, excellent on all counts, noted a problem of water between the toilet...

Reviewed October 4, 2016

Close to Emory campus, situated in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood, this nice hotel offers more than its "express" name lets you expect: spacious suites, great King-size beds, a fairly equipped and functional mini-kitchenette, good free wifi, a modern coffee-machine with a wide selection of hot beverages capsules. Nicely decorated lobby in a classic , almost vintage American style, indoor...

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that the pool was closed during your stay with us. I know this was disappointing to your kids and that saddens me. I do hope that on your next trip to Emory, the kids will be able to swim. Take care, Leslie- GM

Beware of these guys, if they can take advantage of you they will. Don't waste your money here. There are plenty of other hotels that are honest and helpful nearby to have to take chances with Holiday Inn Express Emory.

Visited this hotel for several days while a family member had surgery at Emory Hospital. Staff, especially Aaron, was helpful and friendly. The rooms (I stayed in 2 separate rooms) were a little tired and needed some freshening. Having said that however it was nice having a place to come back to each night to relax and rest after the...

Visited this hotel for business. I found it centrally located to access the downtown Decatur municipal buildings, Atlanta and some suburbs of Decatur. The staff is responsive and caring. And after a few visits, I was recognized and warmly welcomed back. The freeway is nearby. For easy access to the communities I needed to visit. The breakfasts were hearty. Powered...

A typical Holiday Inn Express, nothing fancy, nothing horrible. What makes this property unique was its exceptional and friendly staff. My colleagues and I were arriving after 11pm due to a flight delay, and the front desk called to confirm we were still coming and checked us in over the phone. The lobby happy hour was nothing fancy, but much...

We stayed there for 2 nights for dropping our son to the college. Bathroom door wouldn't close, you had to wrestle to close. No door hanger, broke off. Shower curtain wouldn't close to cover the tub, so water would definitely come out. Grime and mold every corner. I wouldn't recommend this hotel. Only good part was that breakfast was clean...
