Featured Athens Hotels

Lying at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains on the Oconee River, this historic Georgia city is a lively college town with one of the country's top music scenes. Make yourself at home in our Holiday Inn Express® Athens hotels, and discover "the Liverpool of the South."

When you stay at one of our Athens hotels, you'll be close to white-columned antebellum homes and the University of Georgia campus. The country's first state college, UG was chartered in 1785. Stroll the oak-shaded pathways of the Old North Campus to see the city's oldest building, Old College, built in 1806. It doesn't cost a dime to visit the perfumed gardens at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia. Bike paths thread through hardwood forests along the North Oconee River Greenway, also free. Reopening in early 2011 after a major expansion is the Georgia Museum of Art, with a choice collection of American art. Pick up a free brochure for one of the city's self-guided walking tours at the Athens Welcome Center.

Live music streams out of clubs and cafes ringing the University of Georgia campus. Pick up the free self-guided Athens Music History Walking Tour at the Athens Welcome Center. Follow the trail of downtown clubs, record shops and even pizza joints where native Athens bands like R.E.M. and the B-52s spent their formative years. Our hotels in Athens are also close to the city's wide range of restaurants, from award-winning international eateries to modest soul-food cafes like Weaver D's Delicious Fine Foods-whose sign "Automatic for the People" was the title of R.E.M.'s 1992 album.

Explore this quintessential Southern college town when you stay in our Athens hotels, where you can take advantage of the university's free lectures and public events all year-round.

Great value, friendly staff
By ep63
I was just there for one night so I didn't use any of the hotel's amenities, but the room was clean, comfortable and just what I expect from a Holiday Inn Express room. [Less]
By Randy 55
Good, good good. I felt comfortable and it was convenient for business. [Less]
Large Rooms
Beds were comfortable, sheets clean, and LARGE compared to most. Air conditioner did not cool correctly in either room - we had two. Location was convenient to UGA but across from projects. Elevators [More] are really small, stairs odd, Breakfast left a lot to be desired. Staff VERY friendly and eager to help. Price made up for most negatives - would stay here again. [Less]

By capeonthelake
We were in one of the newly-remodeled suites and it was very lovely. Had a problem when the heater set the smoke detector off, and the TV's were a nightmare, but other than that the suite was very [More] very nice. I wish that the front desk staff had been as nice as the suite was. [Less]
Exceeded my Expectation

Way exceeded expectations! Excellent Experience
By e716
Going into the stay I was a little nervous because I'm not from Athens and had never been to the property before. I was generally expecting the standard small hotel room with two double beds and [More] barely enough room for the roll-away bed I requested (which I expected to be a dinky little fold up cot). The actual room was extremely impressive and far surpassed my expectations! The room was huge with its own kitchen area and full sized fridge. We had more room than I have ever experienced in a hotel room outside of a suite. Additionally, the roll-away bed was actually a full fledged twin mattress and box spring which they rolled in and set up for us, not at all what I was expecting. Finally, the staff was incredibly helpful throughout our entire stay. Very accommodating, friendly, and eager to go above and beyond. I also really loved the small convenience shop located off the lobby and available 24/7. [Less]
