Was unsure where to stop to register, not big issue but had thought front desk was at other side of hotel. It's hard for me to travel or stay long if I do without my pet (dog). Would love to see pets allowed!
Everything was great. Asked for later check out, no problem. Eric was very personable at front desk. Bed was comfy
Lack of information that a pedestrian gate what's available on the city side of the hotel
Friendliness of the staff.
It's seems they don't have a staff to help you with your luggage, everything you have to do it your self
The staff at the restaurant were not very well trained, and the breakfast potatoes were "tater tots" and crappy wedges of deep fried potatoes. Ahhhhgggg!!!!
Coffee and cleanliness of the Red Fern was great.
Would have liked a mini fridge in the room.
Comfortable bed, enjoyed the convenient breakfast.
Well appointed rooms and proximity to multiple bars and restaurants in walking distance to hotel.
They called me while is was in the parking lot. Right before i was to check in. They said sorry we over booked your room and we dont have a room for you. Bad review
Compared to Greenville and some other Holiday Inns, Athens has a no-plastic breakfast; i.e. proper plates, cutlery, etc.
Great value for the room and the comfort of the room / bed / total experience was wonderful!
Noisy patrons across the hall - college town. Staff should know better than to put college kids in the same area of the building as business travelers, older couples and/or families with children North Tower rooms were average - clean but, bed was too soft, pillows too hard and excessive water leaked on floor when showering.
The staff is exceptionally friendly, cheerful, helpful and accommodating. All of them were very pleasant. We had a terrible first night due to noisy heater, too soft bed and people across the hall partying loudly all night while staying in the North Tower. We finally complained at 3am and the staff took care of it. Requested a different room the following night and staff made sure everything was taken care of, gave us a discount, free breakfast and apologized for the inconvenience, turning a bad stay into a good stay. Executive Tower is much nicer than North Tower. And did I mention that the staff are all just so pleasant to interact with?
took an hour to get checked in after already being assigned a room that already had another couple inside. Walked in on them.
The room was clean and neat
Non smoking rooms only. I mean people who smoke now have to go to the Moon
First I couldn't find where to park or the temporary check-in. By then I had no time to see my room before going to an event. Someone pointed me the wrong way (blocked) to the Hull St. exit. When I came back late at night, the Lumpkin St. entrance was closed. Someone showed me to my room. Next morning I got out on LL into construction. (A note on the elevator panel indicating restaurant and check-in would be so helpful!) A man took me back up in the elevator to ! and showed me the restaurant.
The staff, once I found them, were very helpful and courteous, though they didn't seem to know exactly the logistics of the construction. Everything else was great, and I would certainly stay there next time I go to Athens, but I doubt that the good price I got will be available when the construction is finished.
There was only one in house restaurant to eat at.
The courtesy of staff made me feel at home and the breakfast was good.
I did not dislike anything about the Holiday Inn itself I wasn't happy about losing to Georgia Tech
I like the friendliness of the staff. The complimentary breakfast was great. I've stayed there before and it is always clean, comfortable and inviting.
Location to stanford stadium
The staff was great did all the little extra touches to make your stay special We give them a Dawgs up
Room wasnt worth 215.00 a night. I hate price gouging!
Location to Sanford stadium. Gated parking with security. Staff was extremely nice. The whole fame day experience was awesome. I will recommend friends stay there for game day.
Parking was sparse when I got back on my second night as there was a conference going on. I barely got a spot because someone was leaving as I arrived.
The first night I got to my room I noticed some street noise (poorly caulked window) but figured I could deal with the sound of cars driving by. In the morning, I was awakened at about 5:45 by the beeping of a truck backing up. I figured it was garbage pick up and would be over soon. It went on until I left my room at 8:00 (construction across the street). When I got back in the evening, Rhonda was at the front desk and I requested a room change. She didn't bat an eye, apologized for the noise and found me a nice quiet room for my second night. I appreciated that my request was not treated as a burden. She also followed up shortly after I moved in to the second room to make sure everything was OK. Thanks Rhonda!
That I left...wish I could of stayed longer
The feeling of being away but everything was near and Convenient
Everything was wonderful
