Guest Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 78 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Friendly Staff! We have stayed at this hotel several years over Christmas while visiting relatives in the area. The front desk staff are all very friendly and welcoming. And we especially want to acknowledge the friendliness and attention given by the breakfast staff. We will definitely stay here again. December 31, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean and comfortable The room was clean and comfortable. We used rewards points for our stay since we are IHG Club members and generally only stay at HIE's. Breakfast was good. The HIE breakfast and pancake maker is my son's favorite and one the main reasons we stay. Only con is the location is a little difficult to get to when traffic is backed up, though not impossible. Not enough to add it to the "con" list. December 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice hotel I have stayed here several times, and as always the reception is really friendly, always with a warm welcome. The rooms are clean, tidy and comfortable. The hotel is peaceful, and I always sleep very well. Happy to recommend this hotel. December 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Front desk customer service I needed to send a fax, but had the wrong number. The night dexk clerk was very patient and helpful. Thanks. Also, breakfast was very good. Loc ation was a little difficult to find from the main road. December 9, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hotel Great hotel phenomenal staff they were very friendly, nice flat screen tv. I'm a priority clubs member and I had a rewards nights, I love the downstairs rooms. Hot and ready breakfast and coffee in the morning, can't wait until my next visit to the Hotel. December 7, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Overall Upon arrival, guest across the hall were smoking pot in the room. The staff was quick to address the situation and moved us to another floor. Not the hotels fault, but they were quick to address. November 20, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location and so comfortable This hotel was a great location for going to Slotin's Folk Art Auction. The bed was so comfortable and the staff was very friendly. We will stay here again and recommend this location to others. November 13, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Favorite Getaway This is the perfect hotel for a relaxing weekend! The sstaffalways go out of their way to provide everything we need. They even worked hours on the phone with my credit card company helping to fix an issue. The suite I always get is clean. The jacuzzi tub and pillows are the BEST!!! The staff always remember us! November 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Business Trip I come here every week, and the staff makes me feel welcome. they are friendly and curtious. I drive a truck for a living, and look forward to spending the night at this hotel. October 28, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gutty Enjoyed everything about the stay at this property. This was one of the friendlyest hotels I have stayed at this year. I worked back shift and the property was extreemly quiet all day. The staff was great and always questioning if there was anything I needed. I will most definatly stay here if I get back to the area. October 27, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nice people good location Typical HIE. Friendly people. Usual breakfast fair, although orange juice was diluted on first few days and pancake machine inop. Rate for room was far too high for this level property. Clearly charging too much during an event weekend. October 24, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not willing to upgrade Guest This is my first and last stay at this HIE in Buford, Georgia. Each time I ask if there are any complimentary upgrades available and I'm told there is nothing available. When went to my assigned room, log into the IHG website, I found there were several upgrades available for the nights I am staying. What good is the Rewards Program if the rewards are disregarded by individual managers? . I am disappointed with my stay. October 19, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BAD STAY General manager is not fixing problems in handicap rooms, like he should!!!! October 17, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice hotel and friendly staff Very nice hotel with modern decor. Staff was super friendly and very helpful. Only issue was the TV in the breakfast area/sitting area didn't work properly. We had difficulty changing the channels so our group could watch the football game. I would recommend purchasing a new TV that is fully functional. October 11, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by They will lie about upgrade availability! I have EARNED Platinum status with IHG. I have stayed at this HIE in Buford, Georgia many times. Each time I ask if there are any complimentary upgrades available and I'm told there is nothing available. Yet, when I go to my assigned room, log into the IHG website, I find time and again there are several upgrades available for the nights I am staying. I can only assume the management at this hotel is instructing desk clerks to deny free upgrades. What good is the Rewards Club if EARNED and GUARANTEED rewards are disregarded by individual managers? My loyalty to IHG, and this hotel in particular, are rewarded with apathy. IHG should be willing to ensure Reward Program compliance to loyal customers/Platinum Reward Members. I am very disappointed and I believe IHG and HIE Buford management have little regard for the Terms and Conditions of the Rewards Club. October 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful Service, Clean Room, Great Price! Called while on the road in the middle of the night and the staff helped us get checked in and settled...she noticed I was a gold service memeber and she made sure I got my late check out. The room was great, breakfast was nice. I highly recommend this place hotel as it is easy to get to..just off the interstate. September 7, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lost power, no television overnight and room rate reduction promised did not show up on receipt. Go to another location, they were extremely rude the ought the ordeal. They order pizza as a peace offering, however, my family prefers to avoid pork and we were served pepperoni pizza. Thanks for the worst hotel experience of my life. Consider I paid for 3 rooms over 3 nights at a rate that exceeded 100 per night, I expected better. September 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BUSINESS TRAVELER I TRAVEL A LOT FOR BUSINESS AND THIS WAS A GOOD HOME AWAY FROM HOME FOR A FEW WEEKS. IT'S NICE TO STAY IN HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS HOTELS BECAUSE THEY ARE CONSISTENT AND I CAN GET A FRIDGE/MICROWAVE IN MY ROOM. ALSO, I MUST MENTION THIS IS AN IDEAL LOCATION NEAR THE MALL OF GEORGIA AND PLENTY OF DIFFERENT RESTAURANTS AND SHOPPING. September 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel and location for Mall of GA and entire area Perfect room for a "4 ladies family get away". 2 comfortable queen beds, sofa and chairs to sit and visit, a mini fridge for our drinks, a table for our snacks and we were set. We were and easy 1.5 mile to all of the stores and restaurants. We also drove 30 mins north to the Pendergrass Flea Market - I would NOT recommend it! However, I would recommend this hotel when in the area! Breakfast was delicious and eat in area was nice. August 22, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Would Definitely Stay Here Again! We stayed in this hotel for 5 days while visiting our daughter. We truly loved our stay and plan on staying here again. The rooms were very nice and inviting. The breakfast area was nice and staff tried very hard to keep things going for everyone who stayed there. The only suggestions we have are, maybe flavored creams for coffee and maybe a recliner in the room. I have trouble sleeping in beds and a recliner would have made the trip even better! It would also be nice to have pool hours that were open later. Overall, we will visit this hotel again. August 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Staff and service The staff was wonderful. They went out of their way to meet our request at check in and at breakfeast the next morning. The entire staff was very friendly and made our group feel very welcome and comfortable. I had 4 rooms a group of 9 everyone was well pleased. August 3, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by No cinnamon rolls/grumpy breakfast staff but Front Desk staff was awesome NOTE: we've been traveling for 3 weeks taking a cross country touring vacation...this is our experience at this hotel Great: The Front Desk Staff: Booked via online a queen suite for 5 of us (2 queen beds/sleeper sofa works terrific for our family). But when we checked in late at night the front desk man (I really wish I remembered his name) was super nice and friendly for such a late hour and was extremely apologetic when he told us a suite was not available. He obtained us two queen rooms with a discount instead. Even gave us two goody bags for being IHG customers and this was the first IHG hotel to give us a goody bag on this 3 week trip. BAD: The free breakfast was out of cinnamon rolls and the lady working was very grumpy/not friendly at all (soooo uncommon) we were afraid to ask her why they were missing. Normal circumstances a friendly staff would greet us and explain why there were no famous rolls. BAD: One particular cleaning staff lady helped herself to breakfast, took it into the kitchen to eat, then left to get her supplies. We didn't realize she was staff until she returned to the hallway with her supplies. I couldn't believer her nerve, I've never seen the staff take food from the buffet. WORSE: Her next big mistake was when we were checking out. 5 of us were in the elevator trying to exit but her cart was directly in front of the elevator and we couldn't get out. My kids are always first off the elevator and they looked at me like what do we do? So I pushed her cart in her direction so we could exit. She didn't even look up from the cell phone she was texting on to apologize or assist. Blah: Rooms need updated. Either housecleaning needs to report stuff or maintenance needs to get up off their butts and fix stuff. We had light bulb out in our bathroom and the hooks on the back of the bathroom door were broken off. The door to the room wouldn't close unless you pushed really hard and maneuvered the door just right...otherwise the door wouldn't shut and my kids could not shut the door. Either new staff or new management is needed here. July 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WONDERFUL HOTEL EXPERIENCE SOME HOTEL ROOMS ARE CROWDED WITH THE BARE NECESSITIES WHEN IT COMES TO THE EXTRA IN-ROOM AMMENITIES, BUT OUR ROOM WITH TWO QUEEN BEDS WAS SPACIOUS, CLEAN, COMFORTABLE, AND CLEAN-SMELLING WITH A NICE LITTLE KITCHENETTE AND A VERY SPACIOUS BATHROOM AS WELL. ALSO, THEY HAD ALL THE BASIC AMMENITIES AND MORE. WE COULD NOT HAVE ASKED FOR MORE AND THEN TO TOP IT OFF, THE BREAKFAST BUFFET WAS OUTSTANDING WITH MANY CHOICES THAT WERE DELICIOUS. June 10, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by very moist bedding and room air I usually very enjoy staying in HIE, but this is not the one. I lived in the first floor, the room air was very damp, bedding was moist to touch, and the A/C did not work. I could barely sleep that night. June 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice hotel Had a very good stay at the Buford Holiday Inn Express. The hotel was very nice, the staff was amazing, helped us line up transportation to the airport. May 26, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Clean and comfortable Have stayed at quite a few hotels over the years, and this one was one of the best. The room was very clean, and the beds truly comfortable, which is pretty rare. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast had a very good selection of items, which were all fresh and appealing. The hotel had very nice amenities and was relaxing and quite. There is also a wide varieties of restaurants in the area, with plenty of things to do as well. Would definitely stay there again. May 26, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean room, HD TV I stayed for the weekend. The check in was good but they were unable to update my frequent stay points. Ny wife made the reservation and didn't give them my account # and I didn't have my card during check in. It was resolved with a phone call. The room was clean and the HD TV looked pretty good too. Breakfast was adequate. I would have liked more fruit. I would recommend staying at this hotel. May 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Highly recommended Whenever I stay aroung the area of Buford/Gainsville I stay at this hotel. The rooms are very confortable and clean, many restaurants to choose from within a mile radius, easy parking and close to freeway. Breakfast is excellent having great variety of choices. May 8, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Last minute visit Front desk was very helpful arranging a room. It was quiet and I got a good nights sleep. April 29, 2013
