Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by diane 25 cozy bed and great breakfast
My room was clean and comfortable. My bed was warm and soft.. not too soft but just like I like it. The cost was affordable. Under the circumstances your hospitality made our stay very nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Queenie67 Wonderful Service
When I booked our room I asked that it be in a quiet area of the hotel, I was given exactly what I asked for, very quiet and peaceful. We had a problem with the room air conditioner when we first got there, I called the front desk, they sent a man up immediately who found the problem, (it automatically turns off at intervals to save power), he reset it or something and we never had any more trouble with it. Our bed was so comfortable and clean it was a pleasure to sleep there. Staff were so kind and helpful, and Cheerful when asked a question or when we requested anything. We were very pleased with our entire stay from check-in to check-out. Thank you to all the staff at this hotel!!

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.

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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rundiemc Excellent service and quiet, comfortable room!
I really have nothing bad to say about my stay! Service was very polite and said nothing about my last minut booking and my special request for a late checkout. The room was clean, the bathroom was stocked well and also clean, and the furniture in my King room was very comfortable. Missed breakfast but there seemed to be a larger variety and selection than other Holiday Inn's I've stayed at. Definitely the best value in Athens!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Annie101 Amazing staff
When I arrived, I'd just been involved in a traffic accident. The entire staff made it their job to be certain I felt taken care of and safe. They all deserve a commendation.
On the minus side, it was not made clear to me that the pet fee was per diem rather than per visit. To compensate, the staff removed one night's fee. I will admit I found the $25 fee a little steep. I've never paid over $15.
I found a couple of bugs in the bathroom.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beech30144 Successful business trip and a good nights sleep
Property is older but they have done a great job at keeping it fresh and smelling good. When I first booked the room I took notice at the low price thought to myself "Oh Boy! smoked up rooms" but went ahead and booked due to the full service Holiday Inn down the street undergoing renovation. I was very surprised. The property is very solid built, very quiet and it had almost everything I needed. (Bar). It was at a great location for us to walk downtown to dinner. We wondered around a bit, picked up some bulldog fan items and it was an easy walk back. Only issue I had was that I was a bit worried about my vehicle as it had lots of guns and ammo and to much to bring inside room. The property is located next to what seemed like low income housing and the parking lot could have been a little better lighted. More cameras to deter mischief would have also been a plus. Other than that no issues and I recommend and will book again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tinker2 Location
Stayed two nights. Convenient location but facility is dated. Had to push the baggage cart from the front desk up an incline walkway because the elevator wouldn't handle the size. Parking was a distance from the front desk. All in all, still a good place to stay in Athens for a short visit. Location, location, location.

We stayed here on a business trip. The room was clean and comfortable. It was very easy to hear people in the hall, but that is my only complaint. The breakfast was also surprising. There was a nice vareity of things to choose from. For the price, the stay was very nice.

Very close to downtown Athens and UGA. Walking distance to many fine restuarants. Hotel staff was very good and friendly and made me feel welcome. Room was clean and comfortable although there was a lot of noise during some remodeling until about 7pm. Very quiet after that. Very nice breakfast area and good variety. Definitely recommend.

We were very happy staying at the holiday in express for our college reunion weekend. You can walk to downtown and campus very easily and quickly. My one complaint was with breakfast - they put nasty processed cheese inside the eggs - they should just offer plain eggs. It would taste much better!
