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...

good place to stay in Athens GA

Was surprised at the cleanliness, updated room décor and furnishings and overall appearance: free breakfast needs tweaking-- for instance,, greek yogurt, more selections of fruit, etc. No newspapers on site; cable tv was not easy to use,: doors to bathroom and vanity wouldn't shut. My overall rating, however, is a three-star.

Okay for what we needed

Modest property on the low end of the scale; we are used to nicer Best Westerns. But close to our business; clean and quick check in. Coffee was brown bitter water; grim food offerings; no fruit. But quiet and a good place for one night's sleep.

Great Value

We were passing through (one night stay) and thought this was a great value for the price. It is a little out of "downtown" ( a very short drive) but right across the street from the famous Varsity mega hot dog stand (as seen on Food Network). Again a great, clean, friendly place. We wil stay there next time

Good value for money

The staff were efficient and kind. The room was very clean. The breakfast was OK and the designated breakfast room really crowded with no real healthy options. That was the lowest point of the stay. We also would have appreciated another bedside table, one for each bed. The swimming pool was most welcome and everything else was really good.
