“Very nice hotel”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Our party of 5 stayed overnight in a suite with two queens and one pull out sofa. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was very good. The room was smaller than the HI Express suite we stayed in the previous night, but that room was huge.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay after a long and tiring day at Homecoming activities. The room was clean and fresh. It appeared to have been fairly recently remodeled. The bed was comfortable, but the pillows were a bit lumpy. The complimentary breakfast was very good. A nice variety was offered. I will definitely consider this for another stay when needed in Athens.

Cindy K,

Thank you for the 4 star review and the comments you left about your stay. We are happy to know that you had a pleasant stay in Athens and enjoyed our complimentary hot breakfast bar. We know it takes time out of your busy schedule to write these reviews, and we are thankful for the opportunity to know how we are doing.
I'm sorry the pillows were a little lumpy. We are excited to be getting the new Holiday Inn Express pillows! We are currently phasing them in our rooms as I write this response. If you haven't had a chance to see them yet, you will be pleasantly surprised. The new pillows are much larger than the ones currently in use, and they are made of 100% recycled materials! Amazing pillows and helping reduce our impact on the environment, we are excited about this win/win solution to our "lumpy pillow problem!" We hope to have the process completed by the end of January 2014. If you are in the area, stop by and check them out :-) DJK

Have stayed at most of the hotels on this campus over the years. Definitely a great hotel for the money. This place always exceeds our expectations. Great pool and well kept. The lobby smells so nice. All the staff are quite accommodating.

This hotel had wonderful service and the room was very cozy. It had granite counter tops with plenty of room to apply makeup and get ready for the day. The hotel was quiet and the bed was very comfortable.

Room Tip: Book early. Everyone wants to stay in this hotel while traveling for business or pleasure.

I stayed at this hotel for one night while on a business trip. I cannot say enough good about this hotel. Upon entry, I was greeted immediately and warmly. Being a Holiday Inn Rewards member, I was given a bag with some water, mints, candy, etc. Check in was breeze. The room was exceptionally clean, and the personal care items are top quality. The breakfast was among the best of the "free breakfast" hotels. I had sausage links and cheese omelet. The omelet was marginal, but there were plenty of other options. USA Today at the door in the morning, and check out was quick. There is a nice park with walking trail next to the hotel. I would highly recommend this location for business or pleasure travel.

Clean hotel, comfortable bed, good location. I stayed for 4 days while traveling for business. I would stay here again.

Only issue was related to the missing 'do not disturb' sign. I asked at the front desk that they take one to my room and put it in the door(My room did NOT have one). The woman behind the desk took down my room number and assured me they would take care of it. When I returned it had not been done. I went down stairs and requested one. Another women asked in a very rude tone if I had checked the back of the door. I assured her I wouldn't be bothering her if it had been there. It was not necessary for her to make that comment. Give me the sign and be done with it.

Room Tip: A good location for the business traveler.

Very clean, well maintained, and a nice sleep. The rooms are nice , new flat screen TVs, Showers were hot, plenty of towels, wash clothes and free soap. Cable TV was ok, use to satellite at home lacked some channels and guide was not up to date. Plenty of food for breakfast...eggs, bacon, rolls and cereal. Good hot coffee, juice and milk. I had a great stay and would stay here again. It was a higher priced stay but worth the money in my book..
