Holiday Inn Express - Hotel & Suites

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 3, 2009

The Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Athens is flawless. We arrived at 5:00 PM on Saturday(during a "Canton" weekend") and were greeted by a very pleasant receptionist. She checked us in easily and we then went and found a restaurant. (There are many near by). We went to our room and used the elevator (1) and were greeted with a 2 Queen room with a large TV, refridgerator, microwave, and 2 queen beds. The room is very clean and no complaints. The breakfast room is very large, spacious, and clean. The fitness center has a treadmill, exercise bike, and a different kind of bike. (All very clean) The computer room has 2 computers, a printer, and books to use. The indoor pool is also nice with a whirpool and water fall.(With a restroom just off of it) Cookies are served complimentary in the evening which were good. Breakfast was sausage, sausage-gravy, eggs, biscuits, milk, fruit, toast, pastries, and other juices. Check Out was a breeze and the staff was very pleasant. (A very clean hotel!!!)

I come to Athens about once a quarter on business and always stay at this hotel. I have never been dissapointed. The rooms are nice, it has an indoor pool, good internet connection, and is close to several restaurants.


I will keep coming back to this hotel.

Having to flee Gustav - this hotel didn't waive their "no pets" policy. There was a HIExpress that did waive their "no pets" policy in Florida.

Shame on the owners and managment for not showing a act of kindness for folks who may return home to nothing.

Shame on you.

I've traveled to Athens 3 times for business, and have stayed at 3 different accommodations: 1 bed & breakfast, 1 Best Western, and finally the Holiday Inn Express. By far, the Holiday Inn beat out the others. Very clean, very new (about a year old) and great room.
Athens isn't big, but the Holiday Inn is close to anything you would want to do in Athens.
Anyway, the room was very clean. Has network connection for internet service. Large room (I had the room with a king bed) and large bed with white blankets...looks much cleaner than the typical flowery fare of most other hotels. Much attention to detail...ie, while I was working on the side desk, but my back was to the TV....conveniently there was a large mirror at the desk, so I could watch TV while I was working, without having to turn around constantly. Also, the coffee pot in the breakfast area had hot coffee until at least 10pm, and I came many times to the front counter to grab a couple of the warm cookies they had there....hey, I had to stay awake to work somehow.
Also, the breakfast was great. Continental style, but instead of just breads, fruit and cereal, they also have omelettes and sausage patties. The staff was very friendly....they even gave me free toothpaste since I forgot mine.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Athens.
