On my trip north I pulled into what I thought was a Holiday Inn in another city. The shared parking lot and confusing signs led me to a competitor who of course claimed to be the same quality at a considerable savings. Watch out! On the return south stayed at this facility and there is no comparison. The few dollars more are worth every penny. Will be more carefull in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dpennie Great service, very clean and modern
Staff was courteous, knowledgable and accommodating. Room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Pool was perfect for the kids, hot tub was perfect for the adults. Breakfast was good, hot, and provided a wide array of choices. Wireless internet did not work in our room - when connected in the pool area, speed was very slow. Upon checkout, rates were more than what was agreed upon via pre-booking, however the staff acknowledged the error and corrected the cost. Overall this was a good hotel for our family.

We had a good stay the room was nice and comfortable. The staff was awesome. Would definitely recommend it. We usually travel with a pet and they are not pet friendly, so may not stay there again for that reason.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality Geek Like staying with family!
Multi-repetitive guest at the Athens H.I. Express. Not only is the property very clean and well-kept, close to restaurants, easy access to highways, etc. but from the first stay, I was warmly greeted and made to feel like a honored family member. Entire staff is extremely friendly, hospitable and caring of their guests. Always a smile, a "hey", some small-talk - welcome after a long day in a several months string of weekly travel.
I travel extensively for business. These folks are among the best I've stayed with worldwide. They absolutely live the true meaning of customer care - e.g. Several months ago I ended up with a case of the 24hour flu one day and had to stay in my room. Staff checked on me a couple times through the day to make sure I was OK and even brought me a couple bananas late in the afternoon when i felt well enough to try to eat something. That's going beyond the extra mile and why I will stay no other place when in the greater HSV area.

The Holiday Inn Express in Athens AL is a great place to stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. My only complaint would be (pretty much the same for ALL hotels) is that the internet connection is SLOW.

The staff at the Holiday Inn Express in Athens, Alabama are friendly and informative in regards to the hotel and events in Athens. The hotel maid, especially Barbara, on the 2nd floor South side is very friend and accommodating to the guest. The cook or dining room coordinator, Ms. Judy, should be an example for all the Holiday Inn Express in the state and the country. She is a wonderful and inviting person to the guest. We enjoy staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Athens, Alabama and would recommend it to all our family and friends who visit Alabama.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by chelle14 great hotel
The room was perfectly suited for a restful stay; clean and comfy. The elevator could use a tune up and the front desk staff needs to be more visible and present. We came in and out a lot and there was hardly ever anyone actually at the desk to greet guests. They were very quick to come out once someone was waiting at the desk. We did not have to wait more than a minute to check in, so that was good. The breakfast room attendants were fantastic. One lady asked us at lest 3 different times if we needed anything, or if there was anything she could get us. The beds were top notch, super comfy and we both slept very well. The hotel is ideally located directly off the interstate, it was a little tricky to figure out where to turn. There needs to be a sign at the highway showing where to turn. Overall great stay, what I have come to expect from Holiday Inn properties.

We were very pleased with the hotel stay. From the good folks at the front desk to the lady taking care of the breakfast. Both went out of their way to make everyone well taken care of. The breakfast lady was amazing and should be commended for her dedication to her job.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BadBackBear Great people here, bedding is great if you don't have back problems
I have back problems. Nearly any mattress/pillow combination is going to give me some trouble. The bedding here was of a high quality. It just doesn't suit my needs (pillows too thick, bedding a bit soft). No hotel is much better in this regard for me.

Athens was our predetermined stopping point on our way to Florida. HI Express is ALWAYS our preference, and there was no disappointment here. Staff was friendly and very helping. Beds were in great shape,and as usual, fabulous breakfast. Not any problems here. A perfect start to our vacation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spookerz35 Great stop for spring break
We have stayed at this hotel for 3 years in a row on our way to Gulf Shores. We have really enjoyed our night here each time. The hotel is clean, quiet, and always has a good breakfast. It is also within walking distance to 2 really good restaurants. After checkout, the ramp to I-65 south is a block away.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bobkat III A minor problem
We experienced a minor problem that I brought to the attention of the front desk when we were leaving. She adjusted our bill and thanked me for pointing out the problem and stated that it would be handled.
As we were leaving the front desk person stopped us to apologize again and since she had discovered that we were a rewards member she gave us 1,000 extra points.

I've stayed in this hotel several weeks over the course of the past 18 months. My most recent stay was two weeks in length. The accomodations at this hotel are great for the business traveler. The rooms are clean and well-appointed. The breakfast area is well stocked. The staff at this hotel is wonderful. They are courteous and friendly and do everything a person could ask to make your stay as trouble free as possible. I will always stay at this hotel when I travel to the Athens, Alabama area.

We stay at this Holiday Inn Express several times a year on our way to Florida. The first time we stayed we chose this location because it had restaurants in walking distance from the hotel. Now we stay for the hotel itself.
The staff always is so welcoming. The lady that works the breakfast room is wonderful. She makes sure everything is clean and the food is hot but she also makes sure everyone feels welcomed. We sometimes travel with our niece and they make sure she is taken care of also.
We have never had a bad visit to this hotel and we have been staying at several times a year for the last 3 years.
