“Great motel/great location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

I found this Holiday Inn Express to be no different than many others I have stayed at. This motel is well located about 1/4 mile off of I-75 about 10 miles NW of downtown Atlanta and has more restaurants and shopping than one could ask for in the area.

The motel itself was clean, the staff efficient upon check in and departure, and breakfast, as is the usual Holiday Inn Express tradition, was delicious, hot, tasty, and the surroundings were accommodating!

A real treat was that on Tuesdays through Thursdays they have an hour long happy hour from 6 to 7 p.m. where they bring in food and/or snacks, (this night it was cut up Jimmy John's subs), along with a nice selection of wine and beers for free! This was a great opportunity to catch up with my friends that were there with me from another city, and an opportunity to meet new folks and learn something new about people traveling to the area.

I would HIGHLY recommend this motel to anyone traveling to the Atlanta area suburbs...especially if you don't wish to stay in the hubbub of downtown.

Room Tip: Away from elevators and the ice machine,,,however, my room was right off of the elevator and close t...

We spent one night on the way back to Ohio from Florida - hotel was clean, front desk friendly and helpful. Room was large - bed was comfy. Nice desk for the laptop, small refrigerator in the room. Bathroom was VERY small - shower only, no tub - sink outside in the room (still not sure why hotels do this). Continental breakfast was same as in most hotels - was fresh and area to eat was clean.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Good location but it's an older hotel. It's got that old smell in the bedrooms - perhaps if they shampood the carpets it would appear cleaner - if they charged $90 a night or less it would at least be good value but at +$109 I wish we shopped around more instead of just wanting to get a few more priority award points.

This hotel was a stop over for us ont he way home. The hotel staff was nice enough and our request to be on the side away from the interestate was granted. The room decor was acceptable, but the smell was not very inviting. It was musty and quite frankly, I suspect it was a remodeled smoking room. The breakfast the next morning is what you would expect and the attendant was friendly.

Room Tip: request a room onthe side away from interstate to decrease outside noise.

I had to spend one night in Georgia before heading back to Ohio. I picked the Holiday Inn Express in Kennesaw for driving convenience because it was located right off I-75. I did not have to brave Atlanta traffic. I was pleasantly surpised to find it located among a variety of eateries, several strip malls and a sizable shopping center. The staff was pleasant and the rooms were comfortable. But the big sell for me ended up being the prime local. I have two negatives. The room offered a microwave, but did not have a convenient outlet to plug it in. A towel from a previous guest was left hanging on the back of the bathroom door.

Room Tip: Had a room on the sixth floor. The view was great

From the arrival to the check out the level of customer service this facility provided was definitely refreshing. Upon check I asked what time check-out was and she stated that although it was 12 if I needed a later checkout until 2 they could accommodate. WOW, offering accommodations versus having to ask. I havent had that in quite sometime.
This hotel has also set up a managers reception during the week with adult beverages and snacks. Kudos for this, but they truly need to think about the location. The room used was extremely small and hard to manuever through.
I strongly recommend this location for the ease of getting in and out of Atlanta, but having the conviences of lots of restaurants,etc around the location.

Room Tip: In the summer make sure you adjust the AC to High and turn down the temp, especially on the 6th floo...
