I arrived a little early and I had no problem checking in. Hotel was very clean and quiet. The young lady that checked me in name Chanda was very polite and answered all my question before I asked them. When I left the front desk I knew all I needed to know. My room was clean and bed was comfortable. The breakfast was good with choices. Pool area was clean and peaceful. If i am in the area again this is where I will stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mom+family Good choice
Upon checking in, the staff member was great. She was by herself and had 3 people in line to check in. She handled it with grace. We arrived late and had no reservations, however the representative was very professional and took very good care of us. Thank you!

Have stayed in many Holiday Inns but this one was one of the best. They kept the breakfast stocked and came around and made sure you didn't need anything. And the check-in was great and fun. Again Regina and Princess made my evening. They were very aware of you and made sure before you left that you didn't need anything and if you did once you got settle in they were just a phone call away. People like that is what makes your day and especially your business.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very nice. My biggest concern were the common areas. The carpets outside the rooms were covered in stains, which was total opposite of the rooms.

Overall this HIE is acceptable when just pulling in off the interstate looking for rooms. Outside appearance and lobby area very nice. Couches in rooms need to be replaced. Kids enjoyed pool area in the evening .. need a little more light. Some chairs need to be replaced.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ajx55 Comfortable bed and clean and quiet room
Very nice stay, the room and bath were very clean and comfortable. Close access to all points and dining. Air conditioning was definitely a plus. I will make future arrangements to stay at this Holiday Inn Express.

It was just what we were looking for. A clean, safe, hotel with a good hot breakfast in the middle of our road trip. Could not have asked for anything better.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sonny357 Great customer service but lacked in breakfast and cleanliness
The customer service at the front desk was excellent and the staff cleaning the room was very friendly and helpful; however, there was mildew on the shower curtains when we arrived but when brought to staff's attention they quickly replaced it. The breakfast area was not very good. Not a lot of choices. There was also a sweet 16 party going on while we were there in someone's room until 10:30 pm which was extremely loud; however, all noise was off at 10:30 prompt. Overall stay was average. The best part again was the lady at the front desk when we arrived...she needs to be commended on her excellent customer service.

There are NEVER any variety at breakfast , not everyone eats pork. My room would have been excellent except for the neighbors who repeatedly slammed their room door past 3am.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TruthTeller305 Rude Staff and Uncaring/Unresponsive Manager!
I work for a small business and stayed here for a work training class. The Hotel itself seemed ok. The training got finished early, but staff refused to let me check out a day early since it was Noon, instead of 11am or before, even though I left the hotel/state then. The lady at the front desk was Very rude about it. My boss called the hotel to see if we could get some sort of discount count at least(or a late check out fee), but was told that since I left at Noon, they were going to lose money, since they couldn’t rent to out to anyone else. Which would only make sense if they were completely booked and didn’t clean any rooms at Noon or after, which I don’t believe. There was hardly anyone there when I stayed there. My boss called and emailed the staff multiple times and even left a voice mail for the manager (Mr. Patel), with NO return message or Call. We were charged a Full Nights fee and We will NOT stay at this Hotel again!!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tyson 12 Poor Customer Service
Rooms were fine, breakfast good. Check in was horrible, the card that was holding the room was billed along with two other cards. My parents were not given their senior citizens discount. I also held a reception in the meeting room there, the night before I was contacted by a rude staff member stating that I would be billed for that night because the caterers were there setting up which I knew nothing about. The caterers had actually made arrangements with management. I actually spoke with the general manager who was going to have the sales and marketing person to contact me to supposedly smooth things over, she was no help at all. Today, the bank is still holding my funds as pending and I have no access to my money. Hotel staff didn't try to resolve any of my issues, they only put the blame back on me. Poor customer service. Will never book at this hotel again or hold any events.

I travel often for business, and if I could get the comfort, courtesy and all around great experience as the Holiday Inn Express in Covington, GA I would be more than happy. There is no reason when in Covington to even look to stay anywhere else.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Guest1551 Not too shabby, Holiday Inn.
This hotel was one of two recommended for a wedding I was part of, so we booked several weeks in advance and hoped for the best. My spouse was a bit concerned by the reviews posted on this Web site, as many people wrote negative reviews based on their stay during the Masters tourney or when there were rude, unruly guests next-door (these are variables not controlled by hotel staff).
While booking, one particular lady at the front desk was very helpful and polite over more than one call (I do remember her name, which is rare and speaks to her positive customer service). Overall, we were pleasantly surprised by our stay--the bed was great, our Queen room was large and clean (not to say all are large) and included both a microwave and a mini-fridge. I've stayed in nicer hotels for $50 more that didn't include a mini-fridge and microwave.
Our only real qualm was that the hotel management has all but forbidden the staff from allowing for late checkout.

2 bedroom suite are about the same size as a broom closet, breakfast was distgusting, would not give it to a dog.
Jacked up my room rate by 25% because the Masters golf tourney was within a 162 mile of hotel. Takes about 15 minutes for luke warm water to make it to the room. cold showers are not fun. Front desk was no help.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bee55 Front entrance of Hotel and Breakfast
The front entrance to the hotel was very dirty and looked as if it had not been swept for a while. There were cigarette butts and once inside the hotel, there was dirt and other small trash.
The bacon was swimming in grease and the biscuits were very hard. Pouring gravy over the biscuits did not soften them up.

Worst experience in a while! Not 100% staff fault, but was not pleased with the room beside and across from us that were both having parties going out there doors and letting them slam for over three hours after we went lights out. Called the desk repeatedly and they were unable to end the insanity. Once we smelled smoke we were sure they would get the boot, but still no. Very disappointed in the stay as I got no rest and had a race the next morning. Circumstance more than the hotel, but was not pleased with the results.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dane63 Great place to stay.
This hotel was very relaxing and located in a great spot. The front desk people are so nice and very helpful. Gina was so gracious. There are two places I recommend eating at. The Mystic Grill and Mama's Italian Grill. Both were amazing. The room and the bed were both comfortable. The breakfast area was big and well stocked...all and all I highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave31 Plumbing
For a relatively new hotel it still has the mistakes that most of the previous ones have. Architects and builders make wonderful plans and then let the plumbers select where to rough in the bathroom fixtures. For all the short women in the world they cannot reach the shower nozzle without a step stool. The only way this can ever be fixed is to get smart and tell them five feet from the bottom of the tub. Do not let a plumber loose without direct supervision. I have been staying a lot since the early 80's traveling for business and a priority club member from when the thing started (along with all the other hotel chains), and the same mistakes are still happening.

Paid extra for a suite and all i got was the noisiest room in the building. Up all night with noise from above and below. Sounded like they were remodeling or something like that. Totally disappointed and got the typical apology from the front desk when i called to complain and let them know we were leaving because we couldn't sleep.
Bye-bye holiday inn express. From now on, I will spend extra $$$ to stay in well constructed building.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kfed41900 Staff was very nice
Staff at this location was very nice however, my room was located on the first floor and was very loud every time someone walked flushed the toilet or took a shower it sounded like the Celing was coming in. The bed was comfortable room was a good size pillows and linens where nice as well. Breakfast was "typical" hotel breakfast however the staff did come around and throw away your trash for you. Maid staff was very nice and remembers your name. Room was clean however bathroom needed some repairs (told was falling off the wall by the floor and wall paper was falling off. Room did offer a good size fridge and microwave we were stuck in the hotel due to weather tho and wNted to watch tv in the lounge because there were a few of us and was told it's on a timer which it only turns on for breakfast...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GA2VA Those Darn Comforters!
I booked the king-size bed in the executive suite. I did like the lay-out of the room, with a separate living room/kitchenette area from the sleeping quarters, similar to a Residence Inn by Marriott, which I typically choose.
I read the reviews before booking my stay and I saw mentioned that they have issues with the cleanliness of those white comforters on the beds and I have to agree, there appeared to be stains, on the comforter, at both the top and bottom of the right-side, so I slept on the left!
However, I could tell that the bathroom had recently been cleaned, which was nice and the overall appearance and decor of the hotel was good.
I agree with the other reviews that it's a bit noisy, my room faced the highway and was directly above the main entrance, so I heard suitcases rolling for the early part of my sleep. Still, I would attempt to stay again - especially finding out that they are pet friendly...a plus!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hotelguest12345 Filthy, noisy, won't return!
We have used this hotel several times during visits to the Covington area over the years. It has definitely went downhill from the unhelpful and unfriendly staff to the quality and lack of items available at breakfast. We checked in later in the evening and were trying to get our son to bed. It took 3 trips downstairs to exchange sheets for the pull out sofa that were so nasty we were not about to put our child to sleep on them. Every set had large urine stains or brown stains on them. The staff was unapologetic. After we finally got a new set of sheets, we were able to try to sleep. The noise level in 301 was so incredibly loud because it is directly over the checking area and the window is facing the entry door and the elevator that all we heard all night were the wheels of luggage rolling over the brick and tile floors and car doors slamming shut. Do yourself a favor and pick another hotel!!!
