Great staff! Very friendly and helpful! Stayed here for a conference and the rooms were ready when we arrived. Breakfast was very good and plentiful. The location is ideal since it is right there at the University of Georgia.

I chose this hotel because we were going to a concert at the Georgia Theatre. After looking at the landscape of the town I realized if I wanted something closer I could have chose the regular Holiday Inn. However, the hotel was very clean and the staff was professional. The room was nice, but the bathroom was surprisingly small. Definitely...

The hotel was very nice and comforting with a peaceful environment. As expected for a Holiday Inn, the stay was nice and the front desk was very professional. Although I will likely not be in Athens again, I do recommend this hotel to anyone traveling through looking for a quite and welcoming environment.

With terrible photography on the walls and the slowest elevator ever, this hotel is like a tunnel into the 1970s but the great staff and above average breakfast more than made up for it. First the negatives: Obviously the generally ambiance was out dated. By the end of the day, it seemed that the hot water for the showers had...

Once upon a time it was a cool Ramada in 1970's. It has new life as HI Express. For an old hotel, it's not bad. But as a HI Express, it's sub-par. The staff was great, b'fast was OK, but the place is just too old with too many functional issues. Slow tiny elevator, poor HVAC, slow drain lines in...

The room was large and clean. The breakfast was better than usual hotel complementary breakfast. I was concerned with parking as there is public housing across the street and I saw a lot of police activity over there. The front desk staff was very friendly. I would stay here again.

We stayed here for one night to take our UGA student out on the town for his birthday. At $100/ night we thought it was a reasonable rate for a night in a hotel vs staying at his apartment. We checked in before meeting for dinner and dropped off our overnight bags. Front desk clerk advised us of a required...
