Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2014Flow 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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by emory 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.

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.

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!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TREV2 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!

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.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LaurenTee 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jimg20 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Michigan06 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chloe77 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.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PlanoDavid 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.

MY DAUGHTER AND SON-IN-LAW LIVE A 1/2 MILE FROM THE HOTEL SO IT HAS BEEN VERY CONVENIENT FOR US TO STAY HERE WHEN WE VISIT FROM NEW JERSEY. NOW WITH OUR NEW GRANDSON IT WILL BE EVEN MORE CONVENIENT. COULDN'T BE MORE HAPPIER WITH THE FRIENDLINESS OF ALL STAFF. TRULY FELT WELCOMED AND WERE GREETED EACH AND EVERY TIME WE LEFT AND RETURNED. POOL AND WEIGHT ROOM ARE SUCH A NICE ADDED TOUCH. AND THE BREAKFAST BUFFET WAS ALWAYS A NICE AND CONVENIENT WAY TO START THE DAY. WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK AND WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS TO ANYONE STAYING IN THE DECATUR AREA.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frilly 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.

I stay here so often I feel like it is my home away from home. Staff is always nice and welcome me by name. It is hard to get a room when there is something going on at Mercer, but lately I have not had a problem. I had to change motels one time this past year for that reason, but since then I have always gotton a room when I need it. The air conditioner is loud and bothers my wife when she is with me. Other than that it is always quite and very comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SherryG Nice place, Great staff!
We stayed at this Holiday Inn Express because our daughter was participating in the Special Olympics Summer Games at Emory. Check-In time is 3:00, but by 11:30 AM we had one tired little swimmer. I went up to the desk and explained our need to let her crash and asked if we could check in any earlier. There was a room ready and we were able to go right to a room. The man at the desk was great. This was a lifesaver for us! He also had maps to many local stores and restaurants in the area. Also, a lifesaver. The room was very nice, and extremely clean. The only con I have about the place is that the air conditioning unit was way too loud. We all woke up frequently during the night. We used the pool and the workout room. Nice workout room! I like Holiday Inn Express and more than likely, if we go to Emory for Special Olympics again, we'll stay at this one again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by tylerton Slip in Service and Quality
I am a frequent guest at this hotel . Over the past year service has
been slipping. I am a platinum member. I was not greeted as such. The evening shift desk staff seemed very inexperienced. Wake up call requested and I was not woken up. I asked for a 0 balance on my statement which goes under my door this also did not happen. My coffee maker in the room was not cleaned when I entered the room it had someone else s coffee pod. The quality of offerings for the Mangers reception has definitely slipped, the food was cold and there was no water. Also in the past year we have never seen the Manager at a single one of these. Finally the staff seem unhappy and not their cheerful selves. I am sorry to see this happen because we stay their frequently. The hotel really needs to lok at itself and get back the quality it once had.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KarenCulpeperVA Beds & Sheets were bad this time
I usually love staying at HIE, however, I felt like I was sleeping on a bed of springs this time and the sheets were itchy. Next morning the staff said they just put in new mattresses, I guess they forgot to put the pillow top on it. My back was killing me. Otherwise the stay was what I always expect, the place clean and comfortable. I recommend it as long as they fix the bed and sheets. Omelettes were terrible but my husband enjoyed the biscuits and gravy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GrumpyVic Remarkable Time
We stayed at this wonderful place April 21st-25th. It is very close to Emory Hospital for my appointments. We took the shuttle to Emory , the shuttle drivers were always prompt and friendly, this saved us a lot of time and parking woes. Our room was very comfortable and some nights the hotel was full but our room was very quiet. The desk clerks and housekeeping and the shuttle drivers were amazing. A special shout out to Jasmine at the front desk she always spoke to us, remembered everything about us and went out of her way to help us with a return visit to Emory. Another shout out to shuttle driver Salome (spelling), using one of his favorite words he was remarkable! He was prompt and a true gentleman, when we were
checking out he saw us in the parking lot and wished us well and then loaded our car for us and returned the luggage cart. Our stay was REMARKABLE !!!
