Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kg522 Wedding trip
I spent three nights here for my son's wedding recently. I travel a great deal, and that was what this stay was--A great deal. Breakfast was unbelievable, staff was on the ball, and the room clean and comfortable. And everything worked. When I'm back in Athens, this is where I'll stay.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by paulina10 Clean Room
When arriving was greeted by friendly staff.Found room clean and comfortable.Left for some dinner and massage .Returned at 10;30 to guests standing around hallyway drinking beer and yelling .This continued till 2;45am.Doors slaming people yelling .Then when the party was over the guests in the room next door decided it was time to yell and fight in their room until 4;30. I had set a wake up call for 6am .My meeting was for 7am.Not a happy camper!!!!The hotel is clean but not quiet.Had meetings all day then drove 2.5 hours home . Im afraid this hotel is geared for girls weekends or guys weekends or UGA students.Will not be staying here again.Needed the rest, not the entertainment.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sleepy15 LOUD, sleepless nights
I wasn't happy with our experience at this hotel. We were in town for a swim meet which means waking up EARLY. Our room was next to a group that was there to party. Both nights, we were awaken at 3:00am with loud laughing and talking. Even after alerting staff and calling for security, we were up for over an hour both nights. In the future, I won't be staying here. The staff didn't seem to care this we were subjected to this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hephsie Everything about this facility was outstanding.
The only thing that was lacking was the taste from the coffee pot. If you could get the maids to run some vinegar through them about once a month it would get rid of the lime scale that builds up in them, next time I stay I will bring a small bottle of vinegar with me just in case you don't take my advice. Otherwise everything else was outstanding and I will stay with you again next time I visit the University. Thanks for a great stay.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DissappointedfromOhio I wish I could rate this a ZERO
I made my reservations online, booking a suite so as to have plenty of room for my family of four and my two bulldogs. After receiving a confirmation email of my specific room selection, etc., we arrived and I was told that "Ooops, your room is not available. We made a mistake. That room is not pet friendly. The only room we have for you is a room with only one king bed. We have no other pet friendly rooms. We are sorry. We will help you find another hotel (at the last minute) or provide you with a rollaway."
Keep in mind that it was a PRE-PAID room that they had already taken the money for...for a room that they didn't have.
THIS IS NOT A PET FRIENDLY HOTEL EITHER. There is nowhere to walk your dog and the staff left us with a distinct impression that our dogs were not to be seen.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bocefus clean room and nice furnishings
The Air Conditioner in my first room compressor would not stay on. several men looked but could not fix. I had to move my stuff to another room some better but would turn on and off during the night waking me up. I wish that it could have been a constant temp. Otherwise my stay was enjoyable. Will stay there again next year but will bring my own fan so that I can sleep thru the night. I have stayed there for about 4 years.

Your staff was very friendly, helped me with the computer, and divided the bill between my roommate and me. Breakfast servers were so friendly, too. It was a very pleasant three days at the Holiday Inn Express in Athens, GA

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Audrey35 Avoid if possible
The Holiday Inn Express in Athens is a run-down, tired and aging hotel that appears to have been cobbled together with one or possibly two attempted rehabs. The lobby could easily be one of a nursing home. There are inadequate directions to find the ONE elevator, and I could never find a stairway to avoid the wait. A septic/sewage odor prevails in the hallways. My room was on the bottom floor just outside the entrance, there was no sense of privacy. The poolside furniture is old and uncomfortable. The staff did their utter best, but all the friendliness in the world cannot make up for the inadequacy of the hotel. The breakfast choices were fair. The coffee was good and always available. The sheets and towels were also quite nice. Again, not nice enough to ever make me want to return.

This hotel has listened! The management team is really trying to turn around this establishment and put service back into this HI Express.
Thank you and keep up the good work!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Georgia52 Initial greeting was left lacking!
The room was priced higher due to graduation weekend and charged on our credit card two weeks before we arrived. When we arrived the clerk was on the phone which is reasonable, but no recognition. Another clerk came from the back and the phone rang at that instant: she helped that person first instead of asking them to wait a moment to speak to us. I felt a little devalued. Holiday Inn already had my money I guess.
The property itself was fine and well kept.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by marylanddad Great price and location
If you are a parent visiting students at UGA this is the place to stay. Although it's on the edge of campus and downtown, you can walk to campus and downtown if needed. Easy to drive to campus. The free breakfast is what makes this worth it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HappyCamper32789 Older Property Well Converted
I arrived for my stay and found a solidly built older property that has been successfully converted into a Holiday Inn Express.
The rooms are smaller, hallways longer, a little darker than a newer HI Express but my room had everything I needed or wanted.
Clean, quiet, all the amenities, and good service. I didn't have any parking problems and found spot where car was outside my room.
Thought it was a good value for the money-one of the better values I've ever had with HI Express.
GM of hotel greeted me @ check out.
I'll be back....

The room was clean and quiet. The complimentary breakfast was very good with plenty of variety. The staff was very friendly. One of the staff noticed my orange juice looked "watery" and got fresh juice and then tested it to make sure it was right.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sogross Not a hotel I would stay in.
I tried to write a long review but they kept saying my language was inappropriate, which it wasn't. So, in a nut shell...cheap looking, smelled, no parking, ants all over our room, very dirty, and rude staff. Never never never stay here

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 1disappointedtraveler Filthy
This was the dirtiest hotel in which I've ever stayed. There were dirty coffee cups in my room, someone else's leftover food in my refrigerator, and the carpet was filthy! The hotel does not have enough parking and if you return to the hotel too late there is absolutely nowhere to park. The hotel is in desperate need of remodeling and deep cleaning! I will not stay here again and would not recommend this hotel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by carey18 very rude
the girl at the front was very rude. It was never explained to us that we only had 1 parking spot per room. There were 4 of us in a room and 2 of us were coming from out of town. We were then told we needed to find another place to park or our cars would be towed. When we paid what we paid, we should be able to have a parking spot no matter what the circumstances were. it was crazy that we had to find a parking deck down town and pay for parking....
