The only thing I did not like was the wifi service was slow and would kick us in and out of internet service and the tv kept pixating on several if the channels.

It was a nice room that we stayed in. The girl that checked us in was so helpful. I believe her name was Tiffany. We would definitely stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CBJ3 Staff - friendly, courteous, helpful
This is just what was needed after a very busy family celebration day. I relaxed in the hot tub & was able to get a good night's rest. The pool area was warm but if you sat next to the windows there was a good breeze; nothing to complain about. I would recommend this location for an overnight or extended stay. I also liked the snacks & drinks provided in the lobby area in the early evening time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AmyB67 Nice facility
Had a very nice stay. Rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Breakfast was great and people very hospitable. We enjoyed our stay. Only thing wrong was the waffle machine did not work. My experience is that they often do not work, so I half expect it. This is the only time I get waffles, so I look forward to it

I only wish I could take the bed home with me. The staff at this hotel made you feel at home all the time we were there.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brownbomber84 Excellent air conditioning
Everyone was helpful and friendly from management to staff. The suite was very nice and the air conditioning was outstanding. The only "negative" was I would prefer the suites to have separate rooms with doors in between but not a big issue. Breakfast was above average. Overall I would recommend this hotel.

This was my first trip to Athens, and thus my first stay at this hotel. My room was comfortable, clean, and great for the value. Probably the best part of the stay was the staff. Once I got checked in, the manager called me by name the rest of my stay, and the rest of the staff was friendly and helpful. Great experience, and I will most certainly stay here again the next time I am in Athens.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dale707 Quiet, comfortable, and great staff.
My stay here was one of the best out of town experiences I have had on the road. It was a last minute choice, but was a good one. The staff was very friendly and efficient and friendly as well as helpful in providing information and directions to my destination. I would stay here again were I to travel to Athens.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pc28 stayed 1 night, charged twice on credit cards
I appreciated not being woke up by housekeeping knocking on door at 9am, like happens at some chains. 4 of us in room & beds were comfortable. We ran out of shampoo after bathing for dinner, going swimming, bathing & then bathing again in morning after swimming again......hotel ran out of shampoo also. we only stayed one night but were charged twice for room and after several phone calls to hotel, I just called credit card company & had them dispute second charge so it wouldn't be charged to me. That is very frustrating when on vacation and need all available funds. Front desk personnel just didn't seem very concerned about it as each time i called they said they would get to it when they could and call me back. Otherwise, the pool was clean, as was the hot tub. The room was clean, just needed more pillows.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by FFamily Average
Fine but doesn't live up to the standard of past Holiday Inn Expresses. POOL CLOSED! In the room - Paper plates, plastic utensil, air conditioner blast too hard (no way to turn it down without turning the temperature up). The staff was great

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bevobear Mediocre experience
I was disappointed because I always use fitness centers. You have a nice one but two pieces of equipment were not working, the treadmill and the elliptical, the two pieces I use. Then I needed to wash my jeans and the dryer wasn't working. Granted, the office said they would dry my jeans for me but I needed to buy soap to wash my clothes and the 50 cent soap machine was empty. The manager went into the storage to get more soap and found out she was out. These are reasons I can't give this Holiday Inn Express a better rating.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Yleen Inoperative Amenities
Professional and nice (night) staff clerk, and both the facility and room were cleaned. Unfortunately the numerous inoperative amenities were not worth the money paid for a 1-night stay. I was roomed in a handicapped accessible suite on the 2d floor, and the dryer on the 2d floor was posted out-of-service. Furthermore, there is not an ice machine on the 2d floor, normally this would not be an issue but the ice machine on the 1st floor was also inoperative (without an out-of-order sign affixed), so I had to ltravel back and forth between floors looking for a operative ice machine. Additionally, the hotel's Internet was inoperative from my check-in to my check-out. Lastly, both the swimming pool and whirlpool were out of service. Recap; these 5 amenities were not available....
1--ice machine (1st floor#
4--dryer #2d floor)

FROM THE TIME WE WALKED INTO THIS PROPERTY WE WERE TREATED WOUNDERFUL. THE ROOM WAS EXCELLENT AND THEY HAD ALREADY UPGRADED US TO A KING BED, WHICH I APPRECIATE VERY MUCH. THE ROOM WAS VERY CLEAN AND WELL SUPPLIED WITH COFFEE AND PERSONAL ITEMS. THE MANAGER HAD FOOD AND BEVERAGES BOTH EVENINGS WHICH WAS OUTSTANDING AND VERY NICE. HE CAME AROUND TO TALK TO PEOPLE AND MADE YOU FEEL IMPORTANT AND VERY WELCOME.
THE YOUNG LADY AT THE FRONT DESK WAS VERY NICE AND HELPFUL ALSO. THE OVER ALL EXPERIENCE WAS VERY PLEASANT AND YES WE WILL RETURN AGAIN.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by beachbound48025 Exercise equipment is not useable
OK hotel, definintely not great and there are a lot of HIE's that are better than this one. Definintely don't stay here if you want to work out - the equipment is usually broken and is some no-name brand of junk. The management there has been informed of this repeatedly but they see no reason to address it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by uttrekr Good hotel with a couple of rough edges
The overall experience was good - friendly greeting, got an upgrade with my PC Plat status - they even had a little dinner reception - great start. Rough edges emerged though - the pool was out of service - trip advisor reviews seem to indicate its a chronic problem. Also the bathroom caulk really needed work.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dave25 Great Service, good room & bed
Overall was a great experience. Service was great, room clean, bed comfortable. Need to do some work on upkeep. Grout missing around tub; bag carts were terrible, swiming pool was still closed (was closed on our last visit).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Camera Freindly Staff and great location
Have stayed a lots of HIE's and this one's building is ok (clean but wearing a bit) but the staff, breakfast, and location makes it great for frequent travelers.
Everyone was very friendly and professional. Breakfast was on time and delicious. Walmart, restaurants, and convenience store all within walking distance too.
Warning if you are counting on the swimming pool check first as it was closed. Work out room was just treadmills and an elliptical but clean and decent equipment.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lspk Lovely room and loved the happy hour spread.
I enjoyed the service and the room was very clean. My only complaint was that I anticipated the pool and hot tub to be in order when I arrived from Austin and it was not operable. I would have appreciated a heads up as I was so looking forward to this.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DD1234 Not up to usual Express standards
I stay at many HIE properties and this one is well below the norm. First, I like to work out when travelling on business but you can't at this hotel because the equipment is completely junk and shot. Needs wholesale replacement. Getting work done is also a problem as the wifi connection speed is pathetic. And for me the next one is a first - this hotel even manages to foul up the breakfast buffet. I have stayed there a few times in the last two months and every time there were items missing. Once, no milk, then no yogurt then no lids. Wow, this is not that hard. And in general the staff seems apathetic about the whole thing. I believe the problem is that the other choices in Athens are even worse so the lack of competition is causing them to be so sloppy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TPEA Terrific service and attractive room.
Our organization TPEA spent many years in rooms at the older Athens hotels, so being able to work with your manager to block rooms and then having such nice amenities was a wonderful experience. We will rebook again and again.

The front desk staff regardless of who is manning the desk are professional and courteous. I visit on weekends and have always been impressed with how customer focused are the staff at the front desk. They resolve issues quickly and completely. Always pleasant too.
