Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 97 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CONSISTANLY PLEASANT STAYS Comfortable bed, great shower in the morning, quite, clean, and comfortable room. Breakfast was average to good but the dining area is very nice. We prefer staying on the first floor and found our room to be very quiet. When we come for patient visits to Emory, we have found this to be convenient and close to the clinic. It is equally close to downtown Decatur, which has really nice dining and shopping. This is our 4th stay and the staff continues to be courteous and want your stay to be a good experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Front Desk Service Front Desk Service was excellent up until the point where I had a FedEx package delivered to me and someone at the Front Desk at that time refuse it. This made FedEx reship back to the origin. I have stayed at many Holiday Inn Express and never once did that happen to me before. I asked the Front Desk if any FedEx deliveries were made and that one Manager said not in a couple weeks. I tracked down my package and it said it did reach its destination but was refused by the signing party, which means someone from the Hotel received it and didn't know what it was without looking to see who it was for. I don't know what Holiday Inn Express regulations about receiving mail to their address is but it must differs from each location. Other wise Front Desk Service was great. They answered all my questions and recommended a few restaurants in the area. I would stay there again if another opportunity arises. February 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Stay We were here during the Atlanta snowstorm. The front desk manager went above and beyond to help everyone stay comfortable. She was overseeing stressed out customers with grace and ease. We observed her putting salt in the drive for safety. Great job during extreme circumstances! February 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Treated like family during a snow/ice storm. The manager and her assistant stayed at the hotel for 36 hours straight! Assisting and helping anyone in need. A few guest were brought for a night by the Atlanta Police and the manager allowed them to sleep in the lobby and anywhere available. The hotel was booked solid so neither the manager or assistant had a bed to use. She even went outside to help those stuck on the road next to the hotel. All the restaurants in the area were closed so she had food and drink available for all during the meet and greet time from 5:00-7:00 for two evenings. The staff was amazing and very concerned for our welfare and always asking if there was anything else they could do to make our stay very comfortable. We were two women on a business trip and our husbands were at peace knowing we were in good hands. J Peruchi February 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Home way from home Wonderful experience from check in to check out. Would stay there again. February 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service Previously overbooked and responded quickly and made us very satisfied with manner in which they handled our concerns. We will definitely stay here again. January 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It was worth it! Our party of 8 adults, one teenager, and 5 children rented 4 rooms for one and two nights each room, under separate names. At our request, the staff was happy to put us on the same floor. Each party was from a different state! We liked the more intimate atmosphere of this 4 story Holiday Inn, redone several years ago. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Cleanliness is # 1 with me, and we had rooms that we were unaware anyone else had ever stayed in! Beds, totally wonderful, as were the fine bed linens. The clean "makings" for making the sofa into a nice bed, were contained in one zippered package. The staff was wonderfully accommodating (more towels, need light bulb--ah! we hadn't turned on the correct switch) and cheerful. We liked the housekeepers, too. We could have had good accommodations elsewhere, and in fact had reservations originally elsewhere. However, we are glad we chose Holiday Inn/Emory/Decatur, as we had more the "neighborhood" feel. A supermarket, and other food venues were very close by. November 20, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by location is great if you have university business. hotel needs a facelift and complete sprucing up of the interior. plumbing needs a complete overhaul as everything is old and falling apart. Breakfast menu needs to be modernized and more fresh and healthy choices need to be included. Staff is friendly and working with what is available. November 11, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Everything good except for hair in the bathtub Kind staff and comfortable bed. However , I found short disgusting curly hairs in the bathtub, makes you think about the overall cleanliness of the hotel. November 3, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful Decauter Nikki is the best front desk person. Good representation of what you want your staff to be, professional and personality plus.. Breakfast bar ladies couldn't seem to keep up with the demand, nor did they care. Housekeeping understaffed, our room didn't get freshened up until 2 or 3 in the afternoon except the day we were checking out and they were knocking on our door before 9 am. The hotel was nice but the weekend rate was too high for the location. Great little restaurants nearby! October 19, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great bed, clean rooms and attentive staff Overall we felt our experience was very good. Very welcoming staff and room was very comfortable and relaxing. Felt breakfast could have been better- eg, scrambled eggs instead of preformed omelets- but that was only complaint! There is a Publix next door so you can walk to get your own groceries if you want. Will definitely stay here again when we visit Atlanta! October 19, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good location and large rooms Very convenient for our appointment at Emory. Room was large with comfortable seating area. Cookies and apple at checkin was a welcomed surprise. Cinnamon roll at breakfast was my favorite. October 3, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfort I was pleasantly surprised when I had checked into the hotel. Considering I had only made the reservation days prior. I had a very nice room. I did not find hairs in my bed, on my floor or in my shower like some other hotel that I had a previous visit. I must say that I was very skeptical about staying here at first but my expectations have been meet with a smile. September 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by King Suite was nice surprise Checking into this hotel for one night, I was pleasantly surprised to find my room was a King Suite. The room included a sofa and coffee table and second sink in main area. Plenty of room, and allowed me to make the extra space my main relaxation area. Hotel is located next to a Publix supermarket. It was fairly easy to find and centrally located in Decatur. Would stay here again. September 27, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Go, Holiday Inn Nikki was so great she is a star and I was really happy with everyone thanks and I will love to come back,, I did ask to speak with the manager and I have not heard from him/her yet about an stolen item wanted to see if they can see who walk out with it but other than that the staff was great September 27, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice and quiet hotel....comfortable and relaxing Had a nice stay at the Holiday Inn. Comfortable room. Quiet hotel with a good breakfast and plenty of coffee. Clean hotel with excellent service. Would stay there again. September 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nadia at front desk was wonderfully helpful on several occasions We were greeted warmly by Nadia, and she continued to be VERY energetic and friendly as we had several questions about our trip and our options for dinner. September 9, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Decatur Hotel This hotel is in a very good location if you have business in Decatur or Emory University. The room was large and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was not their high point. It was adequate but not great. I came in late in the evening and left early in the morning, so I didn't have time to experience the hotel the way I would have liked. I would go back there. September 2, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Enjoyable stay Our stay at Holiday Inn Express was over all a very good experience. Some very small problems did arise though. First, our room key stopped working about 6 times. We had to go to the front desk and have them re activate them. The staff was very nice, but it was annoying to deal with. Also, when we first arrived, the room smelled really strongly of air freshener. Many people would not mind this, but I found it over powering. The room was very clean and the bed nice and soft. We would probably stay there again. August 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Large rooms The room was much larger than I had expected, or seen in other Holiday Inn or similar hotels, and I liked that the bathroom and sink area were blocked off from the rest of the bedroom. Beds and chairs were comfortable. I will definitely revisit this hotel when I am in the Emory University area. August 25, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great place to stay We've stayed here a couple of times, couldn't ask for better service, everyone is polite , helpful and well groomed, which is hard to find in today's market. Everything is clean, comfortable. August 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Accommodating staff The staff at HI Express are very helpful, friendly and accommodating. This was our second stay and we returned for this very reason. August 16, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pleasant Great Staff and very professional. They know customer service and will support you during your stay. We had taken our daughter to Emory Medical center for needed testing and evaluation and the staff made our stay as stress free as possible...My hats off to a great team! Semper fi, August 16, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean and comfortable Nice to stay there for visiting Atlanta with its attractions. August 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Service witn a smile! My husband and I have stayed at this property four times in the last 2 1/2 months and each time we have encountered professional, courteous and extremely friendly personnel. We have a few specific requests which have been remembered and fufilled at each subsequent visit. The rooms are clean, fresh, and comfortable with everything in working order. The breakfast area is very clean and the food is replenished constantly. I love being able to have breakfast in my room. Professioanl staff, cleanliness, and genuine smiles ensure our returnto this property. July 31, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by friendly, awesome staff The staff makes this place. They were always friendly and helpful. I used their shuttle to commute back and forth to Emory quite a bit over a 5-week project, and they were quick. Once, when I just missed their last run, they said to take a cab and they'd reimburse me. That's just great service. I'm a fairly healthy eater, so breakfast wasn't really my taste, but it's not off track from a lot of other business hotels in this price range. However, there's a fridge in the room, and a natural foods store across the street, so I just stocked up on a couple items to fill the gaps. Daily Manager's buffet with beer and wine was really great after some of my long, stressful work days! My only real complaint is the soft water. That's a big pet peeve of mine. I really don't like that feeling of never really rinsing off the soap. July 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent location for Emory Hospital Great place. Staff was very friendly. Highly recommend. July 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Highly recommend. Many places give lip service to " exceed you expectations". This is one Holiday Inn that actually backs up those words with friendliness and service. I will stay here again and again. June 9, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A quality experience We spent two days at this hotel in lovely Decatur. On arrival the staff was extraordinarily helpful and friendly. The hotel as a whole was very clean. The room was neat and clean and very comfortable. It was very quiet at night. The breakfast was plentiful and fresh. On check out the staff was just as helpful and friendly as on arrival. A truly quality experience. June 6, 2013
