Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Athens An Ihg Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Great Hotel with Nice Staff. Terrible Booking 3rd Party."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
It was a nice experience staying at this hotel. Wonderful, friendly staff, clean rooms, decent breakfast. However the hotel should take notice of the fact that reservations.com lied to their clients. It sounded like I was speaking to hotel personnel when I called to book two adjoining rooms. A guy named 'Jay' promised that since I was using a direct call to book, I will be guaranteed two adjoining rooms and therefore I will have to pay more than the rate I was getting to book online. He told me the call was being recorded and mentioned the words 'adjoining rooms'. When I called the hotel they day before arrival regarding a different question, I was told that I did not have adjoining rooms and the booking had been made by 3rd party. The confirmation text had not mentioned reservations.com.

"Athens Downtown!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
An easy location to enjoy Athens downtown. Easy to get to Athens uptown. Very clean facility. Amenities are perfect for families to enjoy. Dog park. Indoor pool. Convenient breakfast to jump start your day. This is my Athens, Ohio home away from home.

"Noisy and minimalist."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
We stayed a Saturday night and perhaps should have expected that in a university town, the hotel would be noisy. We were awakened at 12:15 with a fire alarm (false, we learned, when we called the desk) and were kept awake by thumps and trompings from the room overhead until about 2:30. Loud male voices frequently filled the hallways. (Some university team either hockey or lacrosse seems to have been housed overhead.) The room itself was minimalist and sterile, if clean. Really, it wasn't worth the price and we didn't get much sleep until after 2:30 a.m. We won't stay here again.

"Very Nice"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The hotel was nice and the staff great. The side door was littered with hundreds of cigarette butts, looked really nasty and the staff was smoking at the back door which made us have to walk through it to get to our room. Overall nice place.

"Great stay"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I enjoyed my stay here. The only thing that was not too pleasing was the temperature of the hot tub. Other than that I really thought that the beds were comfortable and the breakfast was fantastic!

What a gift to find a site through which I can screen multiple bids, without contacting multiple hotels individually. Plus I would never have thought to contact many that we are getting bids from! And all the booking can be done through your site? And you'll help with every possible need? What a God-send!" J.M. - Dallas, TX
