Guest Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 529 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Room was clean and comfortable but somewhat rundown I've had nicer rooms at Holiday Inn Expresses. This room was clean and otherwise comfortable but a little run down for the cost. The staff was very good, though, as was the continental breakfast. I do a lot of leisure traveling and have become somewhat fussy regarding the quality of my rooms. I wasn't unhappy but it could have been nicer. June 22, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wedding Party This was a great place for a wedding party to stay. Easy walk to downtown Athens restaurants and bars. June 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great proximity to university and downtown Athens enjoyed our stay very much although most of our time was spent at a conference at another location. Didn't have much time to enjoy any of the amenities except the excellent breakfast. June 13, 2016
