Hotel Over Booked Despite Prepayed Room

We prepaid for a room that was nonrefundable. With that being said, one would think that when we arrived we would have a room. Well that didn't happen. We were told that the hotel had been overbooked and since we had used an online travel site, our room had been given to someone else. I reminded the desk clerk that our room was already paid for, but that didn't matter. They did tell us that they had made arrangements for us to stay at another hotel that was only 11 miles away and that our night would be paid for. We were given a letter from the manager which explained the issue, but we weren't exactly getting our room paid for. They did give us a $99 credit, but we still had to pay for the taxes which added up to $53. This hotel appeared to be clean and well cared for and I told them that wanted to be assured that the other hotel would meet my expectations of a quality place to stay. That did not turn out to be true at all. We were sent to a branch about 11 miles away. The minute we walked in I was overwhelmed with a smell of old smoke and grunge. There was also some questionable activity in the lobby. Enough said!

Excellent Accomodations while visiting our new granddaughter

We needed a convenient location accessible to our son's family in west Atlanta, and other friends in Greater Atlanta. We had never visited this part of Atlanta, particularly Decatur; and have changed our opinion of the Atlanta area because of this experience. The hotel was pleasant , well managed, friendly, and clean. We utilized the pool, health facilities, and sauna. We hope to visit again if we return in December.

Perfect for my purposes

I went to Atlanta to visit a relative who had been at Emory Hospital, so I wanted to be close to that facility. I had previously stayed at another hotel, which was excellent but much more costly. If you're looking for oak paneling, you probably won't agree with my five star rating. However, if you want a place to stay that has a congenial staff, comfortable beds, immaculate rooms, free breakfast and a free snack buffet in the late afternoon, you'll likely agree with me. If you want housekeeping services that are not intrusive but are thoughtful, then you might also agree with my assessment. The location of this hotel was very convenient. Not only is Emory nearby, but so are a variety of charming stores and eateries. Mid town Atlanta is about a 7 mile drive. Parking at the Holiday Inn Express was plentiful and accessible. Stores close by (Publix is within walking distance) supplied the few provisions I stocked in the small refrigerator that's standard equipment in the room. There is also a microwave, which I did not use. If you're wondering--I'm not related to anyone who is employed by this hotel. I just found that its services made a difficult trip much more tolerable. All in all, I was amazed at the value I received for my money.

Gigantic Cockroach

May be a one-off thing. My son checked in to a room that was already occupied by a GIGANTIC roach. Saw the phone picture - it must have been pushing 3 inches. Got one of two nights refunded. Probably should have gotten both nights refunded but he stayed that first night because it was too late in the evening to relocate.

A nice surprise!

Our room was great! The free breakfast, afternoon snacks and appetizers were really nice and the staff was super friendly! My only complaint is that my room tended to be cleaned late afternnoon when I wanted to be in it. Really close to Emory and easy to get to restaurants in the area.

This hotel was clean and we really appreciated the free breakfast. Only complaint was the bed, it was hard and the pillows were hard and lumpy. Staff was very pleasant
