Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BrooklynMom Would not recommend
I made an advanced reservation here, about 2 weeks before my arrival date. One of the main reasons I chose this hotel as oppose to one of the others in the area was because of the heated indoor pool. When I arrived, they advised me that the pool was closed for repairs and would not be open until the next day. My 10-year-old son was very disappointed since, again, this was one of the main reasons we wanted to stay here. The front desk manager, without an apology, went on to tell me that the website advised that the pool would be closed that day. This came across to me as condescending because I had made my reservation 2 weeks and the website message was not on at that time - I didn't think I needed to check the website that day before checking in for any messages. When the pool finally opened the next morning, I was told that the heat could not be turned on, so although my son and I were welcomed to swim, it would be ice cold. What??? Still, no apology or anything. I checked out that very same day. The next day, I tried to get on this website to leave this review and the website would not recognize my information. I called the front desk, and the guy was basically like "yes, you have the correct information, I'm not sure why its not working". Didn't offer to look into any further, no apology, nothing. Furthermore, the room was less than what I have come to expect from Holiday Inn - clean enough, but shabby at best. I will not be staying at this Holiday Inn ever again - POOR customer service and just overall foolishness.

During a recent stay at your facility, the customer service was stellar. Brandon and the other front desk staff were accomodating and pleasant at all times. Any requests or inquiries were met with professionalism and knowledge. it was a pleasure to stay at the Holiday Inn Gwinnett Center for my son's wedding. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!

The service for the hotel was excellent. The server was down and that caused a huge headache. I had to travel to a fed ex Kinko's to handle some of my personal work. Other than that, this was a great place to stay and will love to stay again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jaag excellent gathering place in the dining area and bar area.
My daughter's rehearsal party was held in the ballroom, comfortably seating 75 persons. The area was very clean and bright. The chef and waiter were cordial and accomdating with our time allowance. They were patient and kept the buffet warm and ready when the wedding party was delayed at the church. Our family came from many states so we enjoyed the closeness of our rooms. The mood was so celebratory that the adults stayed downstairs both Friday and Saturday nights until very late enjoying the service and each others company. There was no attempt by any employees to send us on our way upstairs, so the atmosphere was easy and comfortable. We selected this particular location because of the closeness of the mall. In between the wedding celebration and many parties, everyone was able to spend time playing and watching the many children at the mall. It is a terrific place for the kids who enjoyed Medieval Times, Glow in the dark golf, game room, and many more activities from Friday till Sunday. The indoor pool was fantastic to enjoy this time of the year. Before leaving, a large group of us met Sunday morning for the breakfast buffet. Again the staff was terrific. Both ladies that originally organized our endeavour with my daughter and I, remained with us from beginning to end. We appreciated not being sent back and forth with several persons. Thank you!

I was very reluctant to visit Atlanta this particular weekend as all the NCAA finals/festivities were going on but this location was a very welcome surprise. Outside of the lottery ticket that we found in our room (not a winning ticket) when we arrived and the key card not working, we really had a very enjoyable stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ClaptonFan Convenient to the Gwinnett Arena
I enjoyed my stay at Holiday Inn Gwinnett Center. I chose to stay there to be within walking distance of the Eric Clapton concert at the Gwinnett Arena, and will try to stay again for future events because of the excellent service and amenities. The 'Hub' bar/restaurant was pleasant and served good food and drinks. The lobby decor was clean and modern, and offered services such as computer terminals and a snack 'market'. Free Wi-Fi was available throughout the Hotel. My only complaint would be regarding the HVAC unit in my room, which was quite noisy when starting up and stopping - somewhat like a small lawn mower. I didn't report the HVAC noise to the front desk - I got used to it after a few hours.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FarmerintheDell Great stay and yes, we're picky
We spent 4 nights at the Holiday Inn Express Gwinnett Center. Our room was very nice, and updated and the carpet was clean. The only noise was from the elevators that were directly behind our room, but it was tolerable. The beds were very comfortable, but bring your own pillows. Loved the shower stall, fridge, microwave, and mostly the safe in our room. Locked our valuables in it and never worried about losing anything. My laptop even fit inside. The staff was polite and helpful, and one of the desk clerks greeted us by name every time we walked by her. Nice decor and very clean. Would definitely recommend this to others, and if the opportunity arises again, we will stay here again. It is worth the price and we are very picky.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ralaws Great location, Good service, could use soom improvement.
Breakfast service was better than average, food was well prepared and fresh. Most hotels now have coffee service in their lobbies so that you can have a cup anytime you wish so this is a negative.
The bar service was good but being unable to purchase even a beer before 5:00 or after 10:00 is ludicrous. I can understand the bar not opening before 5:00 but most hotels at least have beer in their gift shop coolers. If you are in town for a sports tournament this is not convenient.
Dinners service was quite good, small menu but well prepared.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by badSuwaneeexperience Room provided was not I requested at reservation time
I am a platinum P.C member. I made a reservation on the Holiday Inn website for a King size NON SMOKING room.
When I arrived, I was given a SMOKING room with (2) double beds. I was told by the front desk that they did not have any rooms available like I had reserved. I was told that they had set off an "ozone" in the room eralier which is designed to make the room smell better since it was a SMOKING room.
When I asked why the room type that I reserved was not provided to me I was told that they simply didn't have that type of room available as they were booked for the night.
I am still in shock as to how I was treated by this particular property. I originally booked for (2) nights but checked out the next morning only to have to find another H.I unit for the 2nd night of my stay.
I travel frequently and H.I is my hotel choice. I will never book again at this property. I have a situation where I will be bringing in 3-4 people per month for 2-3 nights for several months in the area but I will not book any more nights at this property.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EB69 Welcome was not as expected
When I checked in I was not recognized, nor greeted, as a Priority Club member. When I brought this to the attention of the young lady at the front desk she did not offer me the amenities I have come to expect as a Priority Club member.
I have stayed here many times and my stay was otherwise great.
I will stay here again.

Very pleased with this hotel. This is the second time I have stayed here and the staff at the desk are wonderful. My room was clean and the water was hot! :) Only wish is that the indoor pool was heated. Breakfast was alright but service was very slow. Overall, it is a very nice and comfortable hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GMoney45 Good Stay after move to 2nd room
First room that was offered was on the 6th floor. View of the I-85 traffic and city lights were nice. Room however had spider webs and dead spiders on the ceiling. Also a long crack/water stain in the ceiling next to the bed wasn't to inviting either. We assume that room has not been serviced in a while. Went back to the lobby and was given another room on the 5th floor. Room was great. Fridge had a low hum the entire time. Very noticeable when TV was not on. Outside of this, we enjoyed our stay. Plenty to see and eat around Gwinnett County.

My church group has stayed at this hotel when comming up from Florida to work at Operation Christmas Child since 2010. The rooms are comfortable with nice ammenities, i.e. microwave, coffee maker and mini fridge. The breakfast is great, and the restaurant is resonable. The rate has gone up a little over the years (as to be expected), still a good value. :)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GAVicki A fantastic place to stay
The hotel staff was fantastic, helping me the entire way. They all went out of their way to make me feel comfortable.
The room was superb and really huge. Being handicapped, I needed the additional room. The shower had more than sufficient hand rails for me to feel comfortable and maneuverable around in. There was enough room for my electric scooter to get into the bathroom. It was excellent.
The hotel maid came in and lightly cleaned the room, without interrupting my phone call. She was very personable and pleasant to deal with.
The food was outstanding. Breakfast was great tasting and there were many many choices. The staff for the meal, also assisted and helped me with any whim. I felt like royalty... it was amazing!
Thank you to the Hotel staff and the breakfast and dinner staff. They did much more than anything I expected.
However the shuttle service to and from the convention center was severely lacking. The first "delivery " was unexpected, as the driver - seemed to be "MIA" taking almost 35 minutes to return to the hotel. I arrived later than I wanted to arrive. Then, after calling for a pick up, the first night it took over 45 minutes and I had to call the hotel 3 times. I was exhausted, cold, frustrated after my day of learning so I am certain I was not the most pleasant to deal with either, but...
The driver mishandled my scooter and broke off one of the side covers and although easily repaired with some glue-I assume, never even stated an apology, just handed me the piece from the ground. I felt like I was a complete burden on both trips on Friday. Something after experiencing the hotel staff at Holiday Inn, I did not expect from the shuttle drivers.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Oldmold Nice Hotel, average at best breakfast, tattered American Flag
The breakfast was average at best, the breakfast had a decent variety but the quality of the food was average to below average.
The U.S. flag hanging in front of the hotel was torn to shreds, which does not give a very good first impression of the hotel. The front desk service was excellent. The bathroom amenties were lacking for such a nice hotel, only soap, shampoo and lotion, no condioner, mouth wash. Also, quality of those items is below average.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by margareto staff was the greatest
I have stayed with you last year for the georgia quilt show. The accomodations are great, the breakfast buffet is excellent. Most important was the staff and manager,who helped me with everything including printing out directions to various places. The waiter in the restaurant was excellent, he anticipated our every want after the first day.
It is unfortunate that the show in the fall is going to be moved as I enjoyed staying with you.

Close to restaurants, local stores and Discover Mills mall. Refrigerator and microwave was very accommodating for a weekend stay. Lobby folks were busy but yet still helpful and friendly. Weather just happened to be perfect that weekend. Will definitely stay here again at my next opportunity visiting Atlanta (Gwinnett County).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AntiquingDavid Bathroom Design
While the public spaces are very hip and pleasing, the rooms are a bit small and the attempt to create a stylish bathroom for the 21st century has a great failing. The commodious walk-in shower has the right door frozen in place--only the left door slides fully to cover the right. When cleaners prepare the shower, they cannot close the door and turn on the water--thus only when the guest enters the shower is the, in my room, nine inch long growth of green slime evident, blossoming under where the sliding door covers it--totally gross!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JDLjr Really good except for one thing
Great staff and rooms. One of the few hotels I stay at that has adequate water pressure in the showerhead for a great start to the day! Decent fitness center, although quite small. Biggest and only real complaint is that in comparison to their competitors, the breadth of TV channels offered is small. Whereas most hotels have around 70 channels, this location only offers 35-40.
