Holiday Inn Express Athens

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I like so much the holiday inn express hotels, service was perfect.

Good Hotel off the highway. Checkin was quick and friendly, they let us check in early because they had a room available. The room was clean as we were only there one night it was in and out.

We made our reservation on line without any problems. We checked in late after our party and the staff was very friendly at check in. Room was nicely appointed and in good clean condition. Beds were comfortable EXCEPT for the pillows! The pillow cases say if they are soft or firm, but they were looked sleeping on nothing!! I whisk hotels would go back to regular pillows. Breakfast was very good with a lot of variety of food. One neat thing was the pancake maker that gave you 2 pancakes at a time. We did not use the indoor pool but looked very inviting. Was a good stay and would stay there again.

This hotel just barely makes it as the 3 star level. The best thing it has is an awesome breakfast, and the breakfast staff person that day was great. This hotel has a coin operated washer and dryer. I know this is picky but the remote for the TV didn't have closed captioning. Mattress left me with a back ache the next morning. I also hate having a charge on my credit card for "incidentals" that is removed the next morning if nothing was spent. I'm not sure what I could have spent it on. Loved the town of Athens though.

The hotel was very clean and quiet during our stay. ( I am a clean freak) The staff went out of there way to assist us in anything we could possibly need. The complimentary breakfast was better than most we have had in the past. We plan on using this hotel , again, in the very near future. ~ Also nicely set up for business travelers!

Hotel was nice. A few glitches with the internet wifi, but easily resolved.[...] made an error in the reservation, but the hotel easily fixed this.

Nice size room that had room for a sofa or love seat; too bad that it only had a chair and ottoman. We were spending the night just passing through and got exactly what we expected. A nice clean room and a good nights rest. I have seen other breakfast bars with better food, or at least more to choose from but it was adequate. This is a smoke free hotel but the parking is in the back so that after you park you have to walk through the smoking area to go in the back door. Overall I would stay there again for the same price.

Very good. No problems. We would stay there again without any hesitation.

Friendly and helpful staff. Great breakfast.

Sales reps from around the country were in town for an annual business conference. In the future, for business meetings, I will not book a hotel that cannot ensure internet access or will not refund our reservation if WIFI service doesn't work.

The stay was short but great, everything we expected and a very friendly staff.
