The rooms are always very clean. The breakfast is fantastic every morning especially the cinnamon rolls. But the most important reason for staying here and returning as much as possible is the employees. They are friendly, knowledgeable, and will help you any way they can.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LD76 Too noisy
My only serious complaint is that too much sound bled over from other rooms and the hallway. Some soundproofing would make this a really good place to stay. Still, it wasn't bad.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Parotmouth Great hotel for the price.
This is the second time I've chosen to stay here. One thing I look for in a hotel room is a clean bathroom. Both times, my bathroom was immaculate.
The rooms are very comfortable. The beds are not worn out and I like the fact that each pillow case informs you whether the pillow is soft or firm.
The breakfast has a great variety to choose from. To be complimentary, you can't beat it.
I have only one recommendation. Even though the carpets in the rooms seem to be clean, they are wearing out. I realize changing them out is a major capital expense, but put it in your budget for the coming years.

Kitchen staff was so helpful and courteous. Breakfast was delightful. Room was clean and comfortable. Hard to beat this for a college town hotel. Will return

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UGAmom breakfast - best kept I've seen
So we have all seen the self-serve breakfast scene in many hotels. What was different here was the smiling, very nice staff person who kept the whole area immaculate and everything well-stocked even with teams of athletes wiping out cereal, the usual newcomer messing up the pancake machine, the spills or juice machine running low. She was on it, mostly on her own (I saw a man come empty the trash bins and another woman walk through there on only 1 of the 5 mornings we were there) all morning from 5:30 (maybe earlier?) behind the scenes set up till every table was clean, the area vacuumed,... what didn't she do? I think her name may have been Alicia. I hope she is a manager someday very soon so other HI's I have stayed with abysmal breakfast bars become a thing of the past. All other staff I interacted with were very outgoing and helpful, she just stood out even more.I am a big fan and plan tol stay at the Express every time I am in Athens from now through 2017!
