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.

Nice hotel

Great breakfast. I had a problem with the room lock that di not lock due to the drained batteries. The staff solved the issue on my request promptly although it took them a while to realize that it is a serious issue.
