Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 115 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Poor Management Choice Had I seen the "No Weapons" sign before I checked in, I would have cancelled and kept on going. I am a CCW permit holder. I travel extensively through the Midwest, and carry everywhere I go. I’ve travelled enough to be platinum for about a decade, and this is a first property that had this sign. Oh, I get it; there is no 2nd Amendment on private property, and they're free to set their own rules. But, by telling me I can't legally carry, #and because I'm a law abiding citizen, I didn't carry in# I had to leave my weapon in the car which is actually more dangerous than me carrying. The misguided thinking that says, "no guns allowed" is that you are preventing crime from happening, that’s not true. By definition, someone who is intent on breaking the law will disregard your “no weapons” sign. You're just disarming the law abiding citizens, not a great idea. I have to go back to the area soon, but I’ll stay somewhere else that allows me to legally carry my weapon. Nice property though. June 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A hotel worth a visit! The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. The grounds, common areas, and room were clean. The bathroom was spacious and well-equipped. The room was quiet and the bed very comfortable. I'll stay there again! June 12, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed The bed was the only thing good about this place. The pillows were all too soft. My room (230) was directly above the pool and it sounded like the kids were outside my room. The front desk attendant looked unprofessional and exhausted. Plus she didn't pass on that I needed a wake up call, but luckily I woke up on my own the next morning. The clock wasn't working- just sat blinking away. The noise from the room above was awful - footsteps, running and jumping all night- very little sound proofing. The room wasn't as clean as I thought a "newer" hotel should be- spots on furniture, walls in bathroom, and ceiling. June 12, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gluten Free Food offerings! Imagine our pleasant surprise when we were offered gluten free muffins at breakfast! Usually it is so hard to see the yummy cinnamon rolls and feel you are missing out. The muffins helped. I would LOVE to see gluten free cinnamon rolls next trip. June 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent bed for two. the two on the front desk on friday nite around 21:30 were GREAT on 05-30-2014. the breakfast group get a great hand also for all three days. June 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel! We stayed here for OU orientation. Staff was very friendly and helpful and even offered us a flashlight as the power was out in some parts of the hotel due to a recent storm. The walls are a little thin so if you are a light sleeper, bring ear plugs, but overall it was pretty quiet. The rooms were very clean and the beds very comfortable. Breakfast was good with a lot of options. Will stay here again. June 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable beds. The room was very nice and the beds were very comfortable. Will definately stay there again. June 9, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst hotel experience ever No electricity. No wireless. Saggy bed. No hot water in shower. Stale food at breakfast. Unresponsive staff. There was absolutely nothing that I can recommend about this hotel. June 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice place No complaints and everything was just fine. Traveling for a track meet at OU and location suited us well. Would stay again. Clean, nice rooms and great staff. June 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Needed a Room Hotel was comfortable, and staff was friendly, computer access and internet access was reliable and staff was good at directing us to where we needed to be. June 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best HIE in the chain We have stayed with the HIE in Athens more than 30 times over the past five years. Compared to hundreds of other hotels in all the chains, this one jewel is the diamond for Holiday Inn. From the moment yoiu park your car, till your eyes close on the pillows of your clean, crisp linens, you will enjoy this hotel. The staff are stellar, always smiling, always helpful and caring. We just love this hotel and look forward to many more comfortable nights in our future. June 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wedding We were there for a wedding. We couldn't have been treated any better. It was our first stay in HOLIDAY EXPRESS and we enjoyed all of it. The staff were wonderful and the hotel was great. We will look for Holiday Inn when we travel. June 3, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect choice in Athens, OH Bed was comfortable, room was clean, staff was welcoming, breakfast was delicious May 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by College visit I took three children to this room for a college visit. Although the room did not look like the photo, we still enjoyed the room and our stay. My son chose OU so I will definitely be staying here many more times to come. April 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by !! EXCELLENT STAY !! We were just there over Ohio University's Mom's weekend & agreed that your hotel HAS to be ONE OF THE NICEST hotels we've EVER stayed in! I'm not kidding. I travel a lot. The clean, fresh rooms were wonderful. QUIET hotel. And by far you have the most helpful & friendly staff :) :) :) Will definitely stay there AGAIN!!! April 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding Stay The overall experience was outstanding. This properties location was ideal for walking into town and through Ohio University Campus. Our room was spotless, the shower water pressure (a personal pet peeve of mine) was great and the Breakfast was one of the best we've seen. We would definitely stay here again. April 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Only minor complaints Clean room, friendly staff, would stay again. I think a bottle or two of complimentary water in the fridge would have been a nice touch. February 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pet friendly and very comfortable My daughter and I have stayed at this hotel twice in the last six weeks. On both occasions, the rooms were comfortable and relaxing. We had my dog both times, and my dog and my daughters kitten the second time. I love that the animals do not have to be kept off of the furniture...they, too, are able to feel like they are at home. The staff, from the front desk people to the dining room people, were all very friendly. On my first visit there was a small billing issue (they had accidentally charged the pet fee twice) and they fixed it quickly and completely. The breakfast was pretty good. It was your standard hotel breakfast. The cinnamon rolls were very good! I will definitely stay here again if I am in the area and need a hotel. January 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful stay We recently spent five nights with three Grandkids in our room. What a great staff, front desk great, housekeeping great even with our mess. The best of all was Kristen who works in the breakfast area. What a sweetie and so kind with the kids!! We will be back. January 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spacious room, very clean Check in/out was quick & friendly. Room was much larger than I expected compared with other Holiday Inn Express locations I've stayed at. Clean and quiet room, excellent value. January 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The nicest staff ever!!! Everything about our stay met or exceeded our expectations. The staff was extremely accomadating when we had a medical problem and our dog told us he felt just like he was at home except that he got more positive attention (petting, compliments, treats) than he was used to. December 9, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality of service I have stayed at this property many time and the service is always great. The staff makes you feel welcome. December 3, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome breakfast attendant. Thanksgiving morning and the service was great. Breakfast attendant was so friendly and accommodating. December 1, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Had troubles at check in but they fixed it. We reserved a handicapped accessible room online but upon checkin they did not put us in a wheelchair accessible room. This property only has 1 roll in shower. However, they do have a great shower chair. It's the best I've ever seen for a Hotel. I went down and asked, they had no problems switching the Room type. Thank you to management! The room was so nice! The only bad part was the speakers outside the front entrance don't turn off at night so in room 218 you hear it all night. Plus the ac/heater unit fans don't run constantly. So there wasn't anything to help drown the noise. Great job other than that. November 27, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quick Stay in Athens Room was very well appointed and beds were very comfortable. We were greeted warmly and our room was ready when we arrived. Parking is Ample and we received gift bags upon arrival with water, chocolate and a password to the free wifi of the hotel. November 20, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by overall experience as my family and I have come expect from HolidayInn Athens - the room was very clean, the staff courteous and there was a bowl of apples and some fresh baked cookies in the lobby November 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome stay Nothing bad to say about this location. Convenient to everything I needed to do for work, staff was awesome. Price was a tad high for the part of the state this property is located, but obviously not too high or I wouldn't have stayed. November 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Platinum Elite My stay was very comfortable. The layout and entrance to parking is a bit difficult, but okay. My hostess was very nice and polite. On the young side, so lacked professionalism, but still was very acceptable except she did not greet me as an IHG member nor give me the welcome package. I had to go back and ask for it and only did so because I wanted a bottle of water. I was very tired, and had a nice relaxing bath and comfortable sleep. Holiday Inns are usually my hotel of choice and am rarely disappointed. The only recommendation I would have preferred is that there be a restaurant/lounge and room service available. Even though Applebees is close, I was tired and did not care to walk over in the dark as I was by myself. October 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Experience We have stayed here multiple times before. As usual, we had an excellent experience. We will continue to return here on our annual visits. We had a rowdy neighbor one night and the hotel staff took care of immediately. The breakfast staff also goes above and beyond. BRAVO to the Athens HIE staff! October 20, 2013
