Candlewood Suites Athens
Holiday Inn Express & Suites Commerce-Tanger Outlets
We stayed at the Candlewood Suites in Athens, GA for two months while house hunting and going through the mortgage approval process. During our stay I broke a bone in my knee and was either on[More] crutches or in a wheelchair. The staff went out of their way to assure our comfort and to make our stay as pleasant as possible. We would definitely stay at the Athens Candlewood again![Less]
outstanding, except no breakfast.as requested
By Big Dowg
Comfortable bed and great service, no breakfast as requested in my reservation.[Less]
This is our third time staying at this Candelwood Suites. The room was large, and the front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The bed was comfy, my only compliant was that the pillow was too[More] fluffy and gave me a crick in the neck.[Less]
Holiday Inn is the BEST!!
Very efficient staff who great you warmly and take care of whatever you need.[Less]
Holiday Inn Ex. Commerce Ga.
Clean. Staff Friendly.My friends stayed in a King room and got it for half the price that I paid for mine with 2 double beds but still very satisfied in our stay.[Less]
visiting and shopping
The hotel is perfectly located within most restaurants. The outlet mall is just across the street with every shop you could want for an outing. If you have forgotten anything, the local Wal-Mart is[More] less than a mile away. You could not ask for a more comfortable and clean place to stay. I'd select this hotel again.[Less]
The staff did an outstanding job making us feel welcomed. Some staff were training and they worked together to welcome us.[Less]
Great Hotel at a Great Price
I had a wonderful experience at my recent stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Madison, GA. I was impressed with the updated fresh look of the lobby. When I walked in the staff welcomed me and[More] greeted me. They recognized my uniform and made sure I got the company corporate rate. When I got to my room it was so clean and fresh. The beds were made up immaculately. The room was was all I could have asked for. I slept well and wished I could spend another night. The room was very comfortable. I will stay at this hotel in the future.[Less]
excellent staff and facilities
This was a wonderful stay for my parents and my family. My mother was very happy with the seating area in the lobby and breakfast area and we used it to gather as a family several times. The staff[More] was very attentive and friendly. I would even say that they were some of the best hotel staff we have encountered from an HIE property. Considering that we are rarely unhappy with HIE staff this is saying a lot!
The kids loved the outdoor saltwater pool that appears to be well maintained.
I highly recommend this as your hotel stay anytime you are in the Madison area or if you are passing through on I-20.[Less]
