“Clean Hotel”
Reviewed October 24, 2008

On Oct 15, 2008 my husband, myself, and 5 year old daughter left Louisiana for a 12 hour drive to Jefferson City, Tennessee. We drove expecting to stop in Chattanooga, Tennessess but my husband didn't want to get caught in 8am work week traffic the next moring so we kept driving which we stopped at 5 differenet hotels with no rooms available. We kept going and at this point it is 1am and finally Holiday Inn Express in Athens, Tennessee has a room for us, considering their parking lot was packed like all the other places we stopped. They put us in a room on the first floor which was very very large. We had a king size bed, microwave, and a mini freg. although we didn't use any of these things. We sleep like babies considering we only got 4 hours of sleep having to get back on the road the next morning. They had a nice breakfast which was free. Back on the room, this whole hotel was very clean because I am all about sleeping somewhere that is clean. The staff was very friendly and we were so happy that they could supply us with a hot shower and a nice bed.

  • Liked — More than just 2 towels in the bathroom and the varity of breakfast in the morning.
  • Disliked — That I wasn't able to use all of the accommodations

We had a great 3 night stay. The room was emaculate. The hotel staff was VERY nice and helpful. The swimming pool and fitness room was kept very clean and both had towels available. It is convenient to good eating and a Walmart! We will defininitely stay there again when we are in town!

The hotel was in great condition. The bathroom was in better shape than some 4 star hotels I have been to. The maid was excellent. The hotel was very clean. I was pleasantly surprised. This is definitely the best place to stay in Athens. We will be going back.
