A very nice Holiday Inn Express. We were looking for a place to stop for the night while heading south on I-65. There's not much available between Franklin, TN and Birmingham so we were grateful for this convenient and pleasant place.

We stayed here when attending a funeral in the area. Very clean and friendly staff. the breakfast was your normal. Seemed as though everyone but us wanted pancakes from the machine but try as she did, pancakes didn't want o come out! Did find several gnats in the breads, didn't eat the breads. Would stay here again.

Very friendly staff right from the front door! Extra clean EVERYTHING! Beds were super comfortable, same high quality mattress we have at home. Clean bathrooms.
Nice hot and free breakfast.
Close to several restaurants and we were even given cards for free appetizers at nearby places.
Will stay again as we travel to and from our vacation spot in Florida.

We were driving through Alabama and decided to stay the night in Athens. The staff is wonderful from the night staff to the morning staff. The bed has to be one of the most comfortable we have even slept in. The complimentary breakfast was beyond great. The cinnamon rolls are to die for!!

Room Tip: the room with 2 queen beds seems large

More than a typical HIE and relatively new. Rooms are clean and comfortable. My standard room included both a refrigerator and a microwave. Unlike most HIE's, this one has excellent bathroom ventilation. Staff here are delightful and accommodating. I always enjoy the friendly chitchat with the breakfast servers. Hotel is located within walking distance of several decent chain restaurants.
