Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Larry80 Clean room, comfortable bed and great restaurant service
This hotel has been remodeled and the rooms are up to date, clean and comfortable. I had Paula and Ray both wait on me at different times in the restaurant and their service was excellent. The only down side here is the staff at check-in. The last two visits I wasn't recognized as an IHG member, was told to come back later for breakfast vouchers without any explanation. I have never been thanked for staying there upon check-in. This last stay, the agent at check-in wasn't wearing a name tag and I wouldn't either with the service given.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Liveontheroad Amazing Remodel
This hotel is beautiful. The remodel that this property under went is amazing. My room was a Suite, it was well appointed and inviting. Great for doing a little business after work and still relax. I ate at the bar two nights and both nights my food was delicious. Michelle and Sheryl both were informative of the menu and very entertaining. They both made me feel at home and welcome. Their suggestion of the Fire Cracker Shrimp and Caesar Salad were spot on. I'm looking forward to staying here again in the near future.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ncguy messed up reservation
visited for a conference, they first messed up and put us in a double room when I reserved a queen suite. they corrected by moving to a king after telling me there were none available. however my reservation, part of our group rate block, was for a king suite that included breakfast. we only got a plain king room on the main floor and I was told that we didn't get the breakfast. This was at non busy check in time around 5pm. everything else was fine.

My family was really excited when they saw the excellent room that I reserved...and my husband couldn't believe that it was such a great deal! When we had a small problem with our first room, we were immediately changed to a different room. The room was spacious and the TVs were grand! They were extra clean too! We were able to relax each day after the touring and sightseeing in the city.

I thoroughly enjoyed my night at the Holiday Inn. I reserved a suite this time and the stay was completely different (in a good way). I will definitely return and bring my family.

The front desk was extremely good & cooperative. However, the restaurant service was very poor ... ran out of food, and took forever to bring food after ordered.

A very nice site with a close proximity to the airport but not too close. Virtually no airplane noise! The staff is outstanding! Ashely and the front desk staff are as professional as they come. The morning buffet is a very good plus with very good choices for breakfast. You will definitely enjoy your stay at this Holiday Inn!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jdtabu Very nice, location great for airport, front desk needs to be customer oriented
This is a nicely appointed hotel, rooms generous size, very close to airport good for overnight fly out in am. Issue - front desk individual needs some training in being customer oriented rather than appearing to be annoyed when asked why there was an issue with the airport shuttle. On check in asked when the shuttle ran and was informed that leaves on the hour, every 20 mins. Waited with multiple folks for 9am shuttle starting 10 mins in advance. When shuttle arrived at 9:05 we were told it was restricted to delta personnel and they would return for us mere "passengers". When returned and left for airport it was now close to 9:20. My husband went into the front desk to alert them and the attitude was "thats the way it is". Folks at the breakfast & bar were friendly and nice. Front desk needs retraining.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ditdah A great room and friendly staff
We spent the night while waiting for our flight back home. This is the best hotel we stayed at during our 10 day trip to Atlanta and Alabama. The room was exceptionaly clean and comfortable.
I can't say enought about the courtious and friendly staff. They were most helpful with information we needed. I would not hesitate to return to this hotel if and when I am back in Atlanta. It is very close to the airport, another big plus.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ihernandez06 Happily Surprised!
The room was enormous, clean and comfortable. Staff was very friendly and housekeeping did a wonderful job daily maintaining our room during our 3 night stay. I am used to staying in luxury hotels and thought this would be a cheap option for a last minute trip with a large group of friends but I was pleasantly surprised at my overall experience. My room was upgraded at check-in. The hotel is modern and conveniently located. Lobby is really nice and food/ beverages/ toiletries are available for purchase 24/7. I would recommend this hotel and stay here again!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ArmyRetiree2 Could Have Been Better
Spent 3 nights. Room was very nice. A/C thermostat was broken but the maint man was there almost immediately and fixed the problem. The vent in the bathroom was not sucking out the steam from the hot shower. Maint man said he would let someone know.
The food was nothing to rave about and the service at breakfast was terrible. Had to ask two servers for a menu, three servers for a cup of coffee, two servers to take our order, two or three servers for a refill on the coffee, and had to wait quite a while for our requests to be filled. There were only a few tables with customers and they had a buffet. It was as though we were not welcome and that they were drawing straws (in the kitchen) to see who would wait on us. Toward the end of the meal, someone came around asking if we wanted more coffee. Where were they when we sat down over an hour earlier? We attended a Banquet one evening and although the service was good, the food was just warm (not hot). The steak I had was medium-rare (I had no choice how i wanted it. I like medium-well) Several people at our table said the chicken was dry and bland.
On a good note, the staff at the front desk were superb and helped us with directions to different places we wanted to go. The maint man was friendly and quick to respond to the A/C issue.
I would stay here again but I would eat somewhere else. If the bathroom steamed up on my next visit, I would never stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jr09 One of the cleanest and happy places we have stayed.
From first moment we checked in the front desk people were so helpful. My husband has difficulty walking and the front desk person searched for a room that would be easy for him to come and go to. The house cleaning staff were excellent. The food was great. One of the best thing about the lobby was the ice water and each day the container had different fruits cut up, orange, lime, lemon and cucumbers. This added a nice change to regular water.
Walking distance to many restaurants. My husband is a dialysis patient and it was a very short distance to drive to a dialysis center.
The staff were very knowledgeable about the area.
I would give the staff and hotel a five star rating.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GatorMike Staff is Top Notch
Having stayed here multiple times in recent months, I continue to be impressed. They do a great job hiring as the staff truly stand out. On many times I have been recognized and acknowledged by name. That is something you expect at the 5 stars of the world. Not a Holiday Inn. The property is recently remodeled, with very comfortable rooms. Location is convenient for airport and getting around the southern part of Atlanta. I recommend this property without hesitation.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Traveler128 Okay hotel, did not stand out
Of the many IHG brand hotels that I've stayed at this one ranks well for appearance and cleanliness, though staff, service and food left something to be desired.
While the on-site bar/restaurant was highly recommended by the desk staff, I would give it a failing grade. There was only 1 server covering both the tables and performing room service. The food that we received after a 30 minute wait (while only 4 tables were occupied) was cold and overcooked.
Our stay also coincided with a very high traffic weekend and the hotel was not well prepared to be fully booked. Hotel is nice and rooms are good sized and comfortable, but overall experience left something to be desired.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Janice911 What happen to customer service?
The only problem on the second day our room was not stock with coffee, bath supplies. The bed was half made up and the floor was not cleaned. The hotel was full, but this should not have change the service that should have been provided.
At the family dinner I ask for a salad plate and the server told me to use a regular plate(not in a friendly voice), why did they not have enough salad plates for each guest, to be honest the looked as tasted as if it had been setting out for a long time because the mac and cheese was dry. The chicken that my mother had was dry with burn marks on the outside. Was there not a manager on duty?

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HappyGuestAugust2013 Not Enough Staff and restaurant is awful but the suites are very nice
My husband and I were in Georgia for my son's military graduation and the 3 of us stayed here the night before (8/30/13# our flight back to Boston. They did not have enough help at the front desk. I had to stand in a long line 4 times for different things. The first was to check in and I then had to wait for someone at the counter to finish so that he could look for a baggage cart for me. The next time I waited in line was to ask a question about the restaurant because they had a big sign at the bottom of the stairs in the restaurant which stated Private Party which made it difficult to know if other guests could dine in the restaurant. The next time I waited in line was to ask if they sold Tylenol and was then told that whatever is on the shelf over there as he pointed in the other direction. Once I decided to buy the item, I then had to wait in the line again.
I think it is very poor management that they do not notice the need for a dedicated guest services position. There should be staff for the check-in and check-out process but there should be a dedicated member for guest relation/services so that when guests have questions, they can go to that person and not have to deal with the check-in line. I felt so badly for the staff they do have because they are very overworked and have to juggle 12 things at once. #Check-in/out guests, answer the phone that rings off the hook, find baggage carts, be the cashier for miscellaneous purchases, call for taxi's for guests, respond to maintenance calls, etc.) I also feel that parking should be an included amenity for guests. I understand that this is a park and fly location but I think the parking should be FREE for GUESTS actually staying at the hotel.
As far as the restaurant, I would not recommend going there at all. We sat down and my son and I requested water. When we took a sip, it tasted like a mouth full of rusty water. Upon questioning it, I asked the server if there was a problem with their water and she said no and that it was filtered but then said perhaps the filter needs changing. We requested bottled water at that point. My son then asked for hummus and chips and 20 minutes later because the server disappeared with a member of the front desk staff, we finally got our hummus and chips to only find out that the hummus was still frozen!. We got up and left.
We had stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Columbus North the 2 nights previous to this one and the experience was the extreme opposite. Everything was wonderful. The staff, the breakfast, everything! This place does not compare at all!!!!!! Upon checkout Ashley was so sweet and was saddened that we did not enjoy our stay. She was very apologetic and ended up giving us a discount to attempt at changing our opinion of the hotel. Her gesture certainly helped and I was glad to know that they did truly care that we were not happy with our stay but I do think changes need to happen in order for us to stay there again or recommend the location to friends.
I would not recommend staying here UNLESS they take my suggestions to heart about the staffing. However, I still would not eat in the restaurant.

This was the most amazing stay ever at any holiday inn. I hosted a wine event and the team more than exceeded my expectations. I was utterly amazed. Trina, Claudia, Antonio, Rafael, Alicia and the rest of the team are truly amazing.
Due to the level of service and extreme attention to detail I will host event at the hotel as much as possible.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by wcrd Did not receive room I reserved..Food over priced & cold
I reserved a king bed, however when I arived at 5:30 I was told that all the kings were sold and I had to settle for full size.
The next morning, my husband and I went down for breakfast at 7:30am. We chose the buffet. This was not much more than a a contental breakfast at lower end motels. There was a table with grits, eggs, and sausage and bacon, which is what Iwe chose. The grits were ice cold and the eggs and bacon was barley room temp. For that We paid $29.00 including tip.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JYPCO Great Choice for long stay / Transit night stay
I have stayed here at Holiday Inn Atlanta Airport North for 12 nights due to business trip. Location is just perfect, 2 miles from Airport, 3Miles from Mall just round about from Camp Creek Parkway and since my destination is located Southmeadow park. For only 5 Mile drive, it is near to almost anything.
The Accomodation experience was great, consider the quality of noise cancelling from near by airport, and comfort of bedding and very up right in room cleaning service. For such location, you can hardly hear anything as long door to balcony is closed. What really give a pleasure of relax is guest service at lobby, even the late night shift remain great attitude. If you find yourself in a mood having a drink, it's bar hour of business keep you up right til 12AM.
The only thing was a little fishy was the diner. Its great to keep the menu simple enough for only 4 main entry, but the quality of it really needs to do some work about it.
Finally, this is a definite a place to recommend for stay, definitely keep us comfort for sleeping quality. But gotta work on those food quality...for business trip, sometime we are just looking for decent quick food option to keep us filled and ready to go.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CARR Terrible Food and Staff, Good Room
This was one of the worst hotel staff that I have ever faced. I am a career traveler. I travel and stay at hotels approximately 45 weeks out of the year. This is one of the worst.
I will first say that the room is nice and big and I liked it. The beds and pillows were just fine. I did find it odd that they only had shampoo and no conditioner. But overall is fine.
The food - I ate room service several times and generally it was pretty bad. I don't expect much from room service, but I was sorely underwhelmed. The dessert was not good and the salads were welted and not fresh tasting. The others just no good. Hummus was the only good one.
As for the staff, worst staff I have ever met. They were rude and short and I even saw one yell and raise her voice at a customer. The poor man couldn't understand her mumbling and nicely said pardon me, and she spoke again in a rude and snappy tone of voice and raised her voice as if she were talking to someone hard of hiring.
A lot of the staff, never smiled or greated.
I am Gold Status and almost Platinum and was treated poorly and never acknowledged my status. I believe my status should get me free breakfast or something, here there was nothing. It's no big deal to me, but compared to all the other chains, pretty sad.
Also, this was a group booking, they first couldn't find our reservations, and then they lost a lot of our reservations or they only had us reserved for one night when we had booked for 3 weeks straight. For some of us they were finally able to find our reservations, there were still many issues. The staff just seemed lazy and didn't care.
We booked for three weeks straight. The first week I checked out on friday and left my luggage. I clearly stated that I would be back on Sunday. The lady said I was set to go. When I arrived Sunday evening I was told I had no reservation and the hotel was completely booked out. She did not apologize or try to make amends or even seem a little bit remorseful. Finally the manager came down and she was courteous and friendly and found me a room (hmmm how did a room suddenly appear??).
A lot of complaints with staff and service. Very disappointed.
