Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 06Mimi Great for our Staycation!
We live within 30 miles of this Holiday Inn and wanted a night over with our grandsons. We always look for a hotel with an indoor pool in case of rain. We were greatly pleased with the location, indoor pool, service and cleanliness of the hotel. It may have been a few dollars more than some nearby places but we were very pleased with what we got for less than $100.
The restaurants close by ranged from good chain restaurants (Applebee's, Cracker Barrell, Logan's, Ruby Tuesday, Shoney's, etc.) to fast foods (Chick Fil A, Hardee's, Mexican, Starbucks, Krystal, etc.) We especially enjoyed walking to the new IHOP! Although we did not visit this time, a little finer dining is Clark's Restaurant, which is nearby. Other finer dining could be found within 30 miles.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Buccaneer Decent
The service was pretty good, the facility was clean and overall pretty modern. My room would not cool properly though. The thermostat was on 64 from the time I got there at 4:15 PM all through the night and it felt like 75 degrees. I like a pretty cool room and this one just wouldn't get cool. Otherwise, the breakfast was pretty decent and the location is nice.

Staff was nice and the location was good with several restaurant options nearby. Standard HI Express breakfast (which I think needs some work) as expected. Worked perfectly for an overnight stay while on business.

We always try to stay at HI Express, but never at this one. The hotel was very clean and the staff made the stay| We arrived early, no problem. The front desk even made sure we had both rooms together. The breakfast staff opened another room to eat in because they had a so many guests. overall very nice stay.

This Holiday Inn Express is actually very nice for the price. Beds are comfortable and the room was ready and clean. Extra towels were provided as we requested. The hot tub and pool area are wonderful and well kept. The hotel is located by several restaurants - within walking distance. Staff was helpful. We would stay again!

Nice, comfortable 2 day stay. We checked in with a very pleasant front desk staff and walked next door for a great steak. The room was nice, just as advertised. The breakfast was the normal HIE breakfast but the lady working the breakfast area was very nice and accommodating.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Blueblack Room comfort
We stayed on two different occasions at this hotel. Going to and coming from our destination. It is not specified as to which one you are asking about so I am rating them on our last stay which would be our most uncomfortable stay. We stayed on the second floor in room 202 and we had 2 other rooms as well all in the same area (204 and 207). As we got off the elevator the ice machine was making a terrible noise and we could hear it all the way down the hall and into our rooms. As we were trying to sleep you could still hear it as well as a humming sound from a unit of some sort outside. at first I thought it was a semi truck running and got out of bed and check and could not see any. Do not know where it was coming from. Very little rest or sleep.
The heat in the room was uncontrolable, even though it had a digital readout and an automatic setting it would constantly put out hot air. Finally turn it off for the night and than the room was extremly cold the next morning.
The breakfast menu needs to be revised and made more fresh instead of heated frozen items.

This is our second time staying at this hotel and it does not disappoint. After a day of driving the beds are comfortable, the service is great and the location is perfect as there are good restaurants nearby and you don't have to get back in your car for dinner. Would highly recommend this hotel for the service, location and comfort of the room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by alwaysonthego21 VERY CLEAN WITH FRIENDLY STAFF
I travel a lot for business and have stayed at many Holiday Inn Express properties. This one definitely stood out. The staff was very friendly and the property was exceptionally clean...bathroom, bedroom, white sheets, white towels, etc. Had a great night sleep and would definitely recommend this property to others. Thanks for making my stay great! You can tell when a property goes above and beyond in what they do and it definitely shows here!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DMK1 Wrong room and arrogant staff
I booked my room online. They only had a double queen with 'nosmk' in the description. I chose this as I desired a non-smoking room. When I checked in I was told 'double queen smoking' I corrected them that it was non smoking. They treated me as if I did not know what I booked and at one time told me that if there is a 'S' anywhere in the description that I should consider it a smoking room. Funny, when they gave me the folder with my room keys, it had a post-it note on the front with 'non-smoking' written on it. Guess maybe I knew what I was booking after all.
I politely asked to be switched to a non-smoking room, I was told they were sold out and it was this room or nothing.
I have had great luck with Holiday Inn in the past and love their rewards program but I will be thinking twice before staying at this particular hotel again.

We have stayed at this hotel several times and always receive great service. We are welcomed as priority club members, and receive a token of appreciation. Everyone from the front desk to the housekeeping staff is always friendly and warm. This has become the hotel we stay at on the way to to and from Florida several times a year.

Looking forward to the cinnamon rolls for breakfast. Alas! Truck was said to be two weeks late because of the weather farther north. Yet, we came from the north--had two snowstorms--one called a blizzard but we were able to maintain our schedule, What happened here? Where is the management of your hotel? We were also told cinnamon rolls were not available on a weekend--yet it was Friday. Did we have a weekend rate for Thursday nite visitors, as we were this stay.
Hotel was very clean==a great plus and hopefully, we can have cinnamon rolls on our next visit. Should we check about this before arriving-? -we can go sevral other places now in Athens, too.
