A great deal

The staff at this hotel is super friendly. The beds are very soft and the overall cleanliness of the rooms is great. Wifi works great and breakfast is served every morning. The location is good for driving to downtown Athens, but it's a good 10 minute walk if on foot. For the price, this hotel is a great deal. I will be staying here again. The only downside was the small restroom.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Cali-n-titos on lumpkin st offers great Latin food for low prices. It should not be missed when in Athens. It only accepts cash as payment, though. You can also BYOB with ID and the purchase of a 2 dollar wristband.

Nothing stupendous but decent

Good value to just spend a night and then head out but I would not recommend it as a getaway hotel. It did have a fridge and microwave. Bring your own body wash because they do not provide any.

Ideal for travelers on a budget

The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was a typical minimal continental breakfast. I was only woken up at night from outside noise once during my stay (5 nights total). If you're on a budget, the Best Western is a decent place to stay.

Perfectly practical

I really enjoyed staying here. The location just over the hill from downtown so it wasn't right in the bulk of traffic but also wasn't too far away. The staff was very friendly and helpful, as was most everyone in the town that I came in contact with! The beds were comfy and there were plenty of pillows. A nice continental breakfast in the office or a coffee maker WITH coffee in your room. Only downfall was the limited parking. We came in a little later one night and had to park in the very back away from our room. But other than that everything was perfect!

Good hotel for the money

Very friendly staff and clean rooms. I would definitely stay here again if I was in the area again. Beds are only double sized, but they are comfortable.

It's fine if you don't expect luxury

Our room was very clean, the sheets and bed were comfortable and so were the pillows. The AC cranked out very cool air. It was quiet and we were on the second floor facing the pkg lot. If you just need a comfortable place to stay and you don't need pampering this is fine. The staff was friendly. Breakfast was a choice of coffee, cereal, boiled egg, yogurt, and some pastries (pastries were basic). Very centrally located.

Worth the Money

The location is safe and convenient if you have events at the UGA. The staffs were very nice and courteous. The room was clean and cozy and had everything I needed for my stay: sofa, desk, hair dryer, microwave, mini fridge, coffee machine, and they even had a make-up removing towelette. The only downside was that when I turned on hot water in bath tub, dark yellow water flowed out for awhile...
